We’ve fvvcked them over by breaking the rules (we have been found guilty after all) and/or the EFL have fvvcked them over by dilly dallying when the should have been handling our charge. 
 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not stating that I think we deserve the charge and that it’s correct and just, I’m just saying that, based upon the result of the enquiry, at this point in time, Charlton are the victims of some foul play or incompetence by another party. 

 

We broke the rules as things stand according to 3 years of accounts to 2017-18. The charge should have been raised and dealt with in 2018-19 as even though our accounts were late with CH, EFL rules dictate that they would have had management accounts for the 2017-18 year by December 2018 and would have known if we had breached. 

The bungling mess made after that in relation to whether to allow the stadium sale in those accounts caused the delay but that is not our fault. Since the 2017-18 accounts we have let high earners leave and have stopped paying out big fees and big new contracts. To punish us resulting in relegation in 2019-20 would be far more unjust than the decision taken to date. Charlton are much less victims than anyone who finished within 12 points of us in the 2018-19 season. They have not got relegated as a result of any foul play and we have not f**ked them over..

^^ This. 

Top fans Charlton.  Just imagine an ex owner who sells the club and keeps the valuable land round the stadium so they can't access it!

They formed their own political party, the Valley party, so the could take control of the planning committee and get home again.  Potentially big club too.  They had 75,000 crowds before the war. 

Don't understand the hatred of them on here.  

 

'Potentially big club' who actively canvassed support outside the grounds of other clubs when they were in the PL and bused fans of other clubs in from further afield for free.

The way their club has been run and continues to be run is a disgrace but they are barking up the wrong tree with us. Far more sympathy for Wigan's fans as they have been seemingly deliberately screwed over from within.

You should get down there and offer your support.

 

I hear you can get a coach from Gillingham.

Top fans would accept their fully deserved fate.

Every club has idiotic fans that make daft comments. I feel for the genuine, sensible Charlton fans. 

 

Football is a mess, fans need to stick together, otherwise clubs like Charlton won't be here much longer. 

 

No real footbal fan would want that.

These "rules" are arbitrarily applied, and resultant punishments just as arbitrary.

 

We didn't "****" anyone over, certainly not any club in the relegation zone by virtue of their on field performance.

I feel for them if I’m honest. We’d be just the same. Whether it’s us or the EFL to blame, who’s to say but the Charlton fans aren’t going to be magnanimous about it; someone has fvvcked them over. 

I dont ...not anymore anyway.

They got relegated because Barnsley scoring a 95th min goal.
