If Ha­sawi goes to Charl­ton they will face a right carry- on

The Observer - Sport - - Football -

For the sake of Charl­ton Ath­letic, a club that have en­dured enough, let’s hope it is not true Fawaz al- Ha­sawi, the be­wil­der­ing for­mer owner of Not­ting­ham For­est and cre­ator of what is known by the River Trent as the Carry on Kuwait years, is plan­ning to bring his unique style of lead­er­ship to the League One club. Ha­sawi, pic­tured be­ing shown round the Val­ley, made such a ship­wreck of his pre­vi­ous club a rea­son­able ar­gu­ment could be made that his name should al­ready have a large cross through it on what used to be known as the fi t- and- proper- per­son test. Un­for­tu­nately for Charl­ton, that would mean re­ly­ing on the Foot­ball League and, hav­ing watched the club drown­ing un­der Roland Duchâ­tel et’s own­er­ship, I wouldn’t hold too much confi dence in the rel­e­vant peo­ple think­ing it is time to throw a bit of rope into the water.
