"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."
Ben Hayes - Charlton Athletic programme

Standard Liege sold


Roland Duchatelet has sold Standard Liege to the club's vice-president Bruno Venanzi.   He co-founded an energy company which specialises in green tariffs in 2003.   So far 83 per cent of Standard fans voting in an online poll have welcomed the news.

Standard Liege was the 'mother ship' of Duchatelet's Europe wide network of clubs covering Belgium, Germany, Hungary and Spain and Charlton Athletic in England.    The implications of the sale for Charlton are unclear.
