CAS Trust have provided a detailed and informative report on their meeting with Matt Southall: Meeting report
Some fans on social media have expressed the view that nothing new was learnt, but it is useful to have certain points confirmed. They also felt that Southall could have been pressed harder, particularly on the so-called 'corporate' flat. Outspoken Ramsgate-based fan Rick Everitt is now referring to the 'Charlton lie machine' in his tweets.
I agree that the situation at the club is alarming and may only be resolved through the courts. There is, however, enough money to keep going until December.
CAST is calling on Southall to resign. 'After a lengthy meeting yesterday, we have no confidence in the future of CAFC under his leadership and lack of funding.'
Southall made it clear that he has no intention of resigning.
I do not agree that there are no prospective investors. One such person talked to me by phone and had been in contact with persons in Abu Dhabi. Duchatelet did not reach out to prospective investors. Other fans are aware of others in the frame.
