That's what Charlton director Richard Murray told CAS Trust members at a meeting last night when asked Chris Powell. He also said that under Roland Charlton had the greatest financial stability it had enjoyed for years. Whilst he regretted the departure of Yann Kermorgant Bournemouth [bankrolled by a rich Russian] had made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
Somewhat surprisingly, the one time Addicks supremo said that he did not know the identity of all the backers of the Jimimez/Slater regime, something that would worry me if he was a director of a company. However, in their defence, he pointed out that they had continued to write the cheques.
