Some Charlton Athletic fans have recently taken to Twitter to share their opinion on who the next chairman of the club should be.
Those behind the scenes at Charlton Athletic have been engaged in what talkSPORT recently described as a “Civil War” in recent weeks, as the club’s “main financial backer” has been “embroiled in an extraordinary dispute with the club’s chairman”.
Charlton Athletic’s chairman Matt Southall made an announcement via the Addicks’ official club website on the 10th of March which claimed that the club’s board were accepting “Tahnoon Nimer’s resignation as a director with immediate effect”.
However, as reported by talkSPORT, Nimer responded to this post from Charlton’s official club website via his Instagram account, where he claimed that Southall’s announcement was false.
Following on from that, the Evening Standard recently reported that Nimer “expects to oust” the club’s current chairman “this week”. Some Charlton Athletic fans have taken to Twitter following the recent reports that claim the club’s chairman may be ousted this week to discuss their “thoughts on the next chairman” of the club.

Anyone honest and understands Charlton is not flash motors or flash apartments it’s purely Community driven and punches above its weight most of the time?

What do we think?
It may be fair to say that the recent reports of an ongoing public feud between the club’s chairman and majority shareholder may indicate a lack of stability behind the scenes at Charlton Athletic, at present.
With Charlton currently sitting in the Championship’s relegation zone. with just nine league games left to be played this season, it may be in the club’s best interests if this alleged feud between the club’s chairman and majority shareholder is settled quickly, regardless of who is occupying the position of chairman.
