Good for you Super Kev, shame so few other Charlton connected people have had the balls to speak out over the last couple of years.

....

THERE was one overriding emotion that consumed Kevin Lisbie when he attended a Charlton match last season – sadness.

The 39-year-old striker spent 11 years at the south London club, playing more than 100 Premier League matches in a successful period for the Addicks.

But the club have slipped down the leagues, currently finding themselves in League One. And their decline has stunned Lisbie.

“I went to the final game of last season (against Swindon) and it was quite sad to see The Valley so empty,” he said. “I remember there being 25,000 people every week, and then to go there and see around 5,000 was really sad.

“There were a lot of people who looked quite upset and sad about the situation. Even though they weren’t in a position where they were going to get relegated, it looked like they were getting relegated.”

Many fans have called for owner Roland Duchatelet to sell the club, and the Belgian businessman has admitted that is a possibility following the resignation of CEO and director Katrien Meire this week.

Lisbie says the supporter are desperate for a passionate owner, to help take them back up the Football League.

“Even if Charlton got promoted, I’m not sure everybody would be happy,” he claimed. “I think people want new owners in and someone who cares about the club.

“The fans are very passionate and they really care about the club. They want someone who also cares about the club and wants to see it go in the right direction.”
