Some Charlton Athletic fans have flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by Matt Southall in response to an Addicks fan who made a post referring to Southall as a “crook”. 

Southall responded to this Charlton fan by questioning them for believing “the biggest crook of them all”, who Southall claims is the one who originally accused him of being a ‘crook’. 

The ex-Charlton chairman Southall, who was recently removed from the board of the club’s owners, East Street Investments, according to the BBC, may be referring to the club’s current majority shareholder Tahnoon Nimer in his tweet. Nimer recently spoke to Sky Sports where he claimed that the ex-Charlton chairman was “responsible for taking £1.8m out of the club during his time as chairman”.

Some Addicks fans have been reacting to Southall’s recent tweet, with many of those responding to him refusing to show any sympathy for the club’s ex-chairman. Read the reactions of some Addicks fans to Southall’s recent post in the tweets below.

To kick off our EFL Championship records quiz, can you name which player has scored the highest number of goals in a single Championship season?

What do we think?

When speaking recently with Sky Sports, Nimer claimed that one of the reasons that Southall allegedly took “£1.8m out of the club”, was in order to “fund his lifestyle”. Sky Sports have stated that the ex-Charlton chairman Southall has “denied the allegations”. 

Considering that Southall has denied Nimer’s allegations, it may be understandable why the ex-Charlton chairman has hit back at fans referring to him as a “crook” on social media if these allegations do ultimately prove to be untrue.
