Tractor takeover talks a warning for Charlton

In recent years we have acquired a number of key players from faltering Ipswich Town. But now, following Southampton, the Tractors have faced up to the reality of the situation they face in seeking get back to the Premiership and are engaged in takeover talks.

The Evening Star [sic] reports, 'Negotiations are at such a delicate stage that the Blues are refusing to talk publicly about the people who could own the club by the end of June. It is understood chairman David Sheepshanks and chief executive Derek Bowden have agreed in principle to sell the club, although talks are still at a relatively early stage.'

Whether Charlton should remain under its existing ownership is a highly controversial subject among supporters with the majority favouring the status quo. But the rush of takeover bids could mean that either Charlton will be left behind or be left with a C list bidder.

This is a subject we will be pursuing in the coming weeks with Paul May taking a different view from mine.

Let's be positive; a winnable game against Spurs with Fulham likely to lose both of their remaining games and West Ham only drawing against a Bolton side still needing points for Wigan nosediving to defeat against Boro and Sheff Utd.......any 2 out of the 3 will do us...provided we don't lose by more than 2 goals against 'Pool.....the dream's still alive in SE7!!
