    The first five minutes was spouting all sorts of s*** before they got onto spouting some offical s***.

    What a classic <cheers>

    I used to ring it religiously every day - from work :emoticon-0148-yes:

    We had itemised bills in the office even in those days, so I used to “hot-desk” around an office containing 30-odd desks, spreading the largesse at £1.20 a min <laugh>

    Anyone remember Pete Burrows - a God awful interviewer who sounded like he was farting into a wind tunnel as he grilled a morose Lennie after yet another defeat.

    Clubcall was how we got our info about Charlton in the 80s.

    Happy days the 80s ....Lennie at Selhurst ....Melrose in the penalty box.....Jim Dutton still at Millwall ...

    I was there.

    I’m guessing Burrowes is in his 80s now.

    The timing of the meeting was unfortunate, because the night before we had lost (maybe been hammered) by Southampton at the Dell.

    Burrowes was chairing the meeting in his usual crack handed way, and serving Lennie a series of medium paced long hops.

    Up steps yours truly, coming in off a long run at 90mph with a bouncer

    “Lennie, fans at Southampton last night were wondering why you are so bad at using substitutes” <laugh>

    To be fair to Lennie, he paused and then agreed I had a point.

    Burrowes looked as if he has just swallowed a cockroach.

    I will give you credit for being consistent. Even King Lennie is not immune from your tongue<doh>

    I'm surprised King Lennie did not offer you a position at the club.

    We had a beer meeting about it, and then I posted 800 times in 3 days.

    I’ve called for the head of every Charlton manager since Ken Craggs / Andy Nelson - with two honest exceptions.

    I never wanted Curbs to go, or Jose Riga.

    Curbishley had to go, nothing lasts forever.

    Once it all kicked off regards the last year of his contract things had to change.
