Randolph and Holland expected to sign

Darren Randolph has been holding contract talks with Addicks supremo Phil Parkinson and a deal is expected to be agreed within the next few days. Matt Holland has started training and is also expected to agree a deal.

Phil Parkinson is expected to remain Addicks manager next season. Realistically we cannot afford anyone else. I wouldn't describe myself as an enthusiast, but I am not as critical as some people are. He inherited a poisoned chalice and performances and results did improve somewhat.

Peter Varney was never heading up a takeover deal, but has been helping with making presentations to prospective investors who might inject some much needed new money into the club.

Gloomsters are already predicting relegation into Division 2. It has to be remembered that many League 1 sides are not as good as those in the Championship and the squad should be able to cope, at least to the extent of getting to the fringes of the play offs.

But is 'fringes of the playoffs' (which implies a second season in tier 3) good enough for us and the club?

not to be negative but no shirt sponser no new players no news from club. Has anybody heard anything positive?

I don't think fringes of the play off is good enough, but it is quite a competitive division and it is realistically the best we can hope for. It is going to take two seasons to get back up, although that partly depends on any new money coming in. As far as players coming in is concerned, I am expecting exits rather than arrivals.

If we are in such a finiacal hole why is the Finance Director still with the club.Surely it is one of his tasks to alert people on the board that things are going wrong.Still wonder where all the money has gone?

"...all the money..." came from TV or Richard Murray and at best the business only ever just about broke even. Virtually no TV money, Mr Murray's coffers are empty, these things we know. Lots of the money that used to come in went to the players, several of them still benefit from contracts drawn up in more lucrative times. Less than half the season ticket numbers of last year and about one third of the peak, which were also at significantly higher prices.
No news is good news - what is it you want to hear?
