It is possible to find new investors

Rushden and Diamonds are two divisions below Charlton. No doubt they cost less money to buy; the state-of-the-art stadium has reasonable maintenance costs; and it won't cost that much to strengthen the squad. They also have an excellent manager in Justin Edinburgh. Nevertheless, it is interesting that in the present climate they are able to attract new investment: Irthlingborough

After all, the metropolis of Irthlingborough and its surroundings do not have the Thames Gateway or other potential for boosting attendances.

Wyn,your question has been answered

The club have just announced that they have accepted a bid from a party represented by Peter Varney !

They expect to complte matters no later than 24th December, so lets hope it proves to be a happy christmas for all CAFC fans.

R & D's new chairman has previously been involved with Hornchurch, when they were described as the Chelsea of non-league, and also Weymouth. Neither ended successfully. Be careful what you wish for, Wyn.

I was aware of the previous in the case of the R & D chairman, but one has to be very careful what one says. In the case of Charlton I would place my trust in Richard Murray and Peter Varney not to sell the club down the river (perhaps even literally). There have been earlier offers which RM has rejected as unsuitable.
