Meire likened to Comical Ali

Chris Dunlavy gives it large to Roland Duchatelet and Katrien Meire in his column in today's Football League Paper. Noting Roland's visit to The Valley, he says that he was surprised he could find it, given that 'he is spotted as regularly as Haley's comet.' As for his ownership, 'his policy of hiring cut-rate continentals and no-mark managers has turned Charlton into an embarrassing punch-bag.'

As for Meire 'For much of the last eighteen months she has done her best Comical Ali impression, belligerently lauding the wisdom of Roland while his plans unravelled about her.'

Dunlavy concludes, referring to the chief executive's pledge to learn from her mistakes, 'Only when we get to September and Charlton aren't flooded to the gunwales with Belgian Sunday Leaguers will we know that Meire and Duchatelet really have learned.'
