Ramsgate fan spells out the challenges

The economist John Maynard Keynes asserted that being in Ramsgate was enough to send anyone into a deep state of gloom.  However, one cannot ignore the wisdom of the warnings delivered by VOTV editor Rick Everitt from his Ramsgate fastness and at this time of year he will not be confronted by the grey heaving sea that upset Keynes one Christmas.

The Rickster has tweeted: 'Remember that Charlton’s operating loss in L1 in 2018/19, inclusive of play-off income, was £11.9m. Covid-19 is likely to reduce turnover in 20/21 significantly and offset any wage savings. Cuts and player sales won’t hack it.'

On a slightly more optimistic note, he commented: It’s likely to get very messy over the next few weeks and months. However, there are people with big ambitions for Charlton ready to step in. It will take time and it will be painful but we can put this right and we will.'

Charlton fans have always shown their willingness to fight for the club they love regardless of the clowns who take charge of it.
