'Relegation would put Charlton in mortal peril' reports the Sub-Standard. I guess we knew that anyway without the golden guidance of George Osborne, but it's a good summary of the club's plight: https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/football/relegation-charlton-future-peril-a4462656.html
One thing I did learn was that the Portuguese consortium has put in two bids, although it is not clear why the first one was unacceptable.
I - and I think many other fans - would prefer the Barclay/Varney deal, but it faces a number of obstacles.
As one source commented, 'The Barclay deal would be very good and I think fans will be very pleased with it if it comes to fruition. The difficulty is that ESI reached a ridiculous deal with RD, probably because they had no intention of following it through, and of course he will want to stick to it.'
