Bid for a Quid & Bought for a Pound! - Join the Charlton Family to take back our club.
£1 - how far does it stretch these days?
• 4.7 chips at a Valley kiosk (based on claims of 14 chips per portion)
• Just under a litre of unleaded fuel for your Range Rover* (if a Costco member)
• The right to claim ownership of Charlton Athletic Football Club
£1 may not go far for most of us, yet ESI’s £1 investment in ‘our club’ has stretched the realms of audacity and credibility. Since their 'bid a quid' takeover in January 2020 we the supporters - the life and soul of the football club - have witnessed an endless stream of chancers, bluffers and liars sullying our good name whilst lining their own pockets.
Unnecessary relegation, transfer embargos, even the failure to meet the extremely low bar of EFL approval - it is fair to say no-one has come out of this insulting sham of ownership with any credit.
Now as the internal petty bickering shifts from social media to court injunctions, enough is enough.
It is our turn to claim the club for a pound.
We are urging supporters, young and old, to attend the Valley next Saturday, 22 August at 1200 where we will claim back our club for one hour.
The message is simple. It's a family orientated, law abiding event. Wear your colours, wear fancy dress, but most importantly, wear a mask. We are keen to adhere to social distancing as we present a visible outpouring of support for Charlton Athletic - our club - despite its farcical ownership.
Simply meet in the West Stand Car Park at 1200 on Saturday 22 August. Bring a flag, bring your grandparents, bring your grandchildren. Let's show what this club means to the Charlton community.
In return we are asking, where possible that people leave a symbolic £1 at the feet of Sam Bartram’s statue. All monies will be passed on to Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust’s Covid-19 relief Fund. It is only an hour of your day, we plan to peacefully disperse at 1300 but this is our opportunity to show the wider world, the media, even potential responsible owners, what Charlton means to our community.
Tell your friends, bring a friend.
Live, love laugh and be happy.
