Trapped at work, I've been unable to see the footage but fortunately All Quiet In The East Stand is liveblogging the unfolding drama.
What odds on Palace and Charlton meeting in the cup this year?
I think he's an unpleasant joke of an attention-seeker, who should surely be concentrating on filling yet another managerial position - rather than doing more to put off any half-decent candidates from accepting the Palace poisoned chalice.
Eight managers in seven years - that can't be good. Especially when two of those he's forced out, Coppell and Dowie, will be happily waving to him from the Premiership next season.
Mind you, having unfortunately had to deal with his brother Dominic in his day-to-day running of the club, it may seem hard to believe but Simon's actually, comparatively, the charmer of the family...
Charlton are a very dull club, though, aren't they? Now trying ever-so-hard to drum up some spite and rivalry with someone, anyone...
Will be interesting to see Charlton v Everton next season, and how Dowie responds to a Johnson dive to win a penalty this time...!
In regards to Charlton being a dull club... maybe this is true (well, there is no maybe about it!), but with Ian Dowie at the helm, I predict better times for the club. That won't necessarily translate into a better league position, mind you, or even a better run in the cups... but I do predict a much more enjoyable brand of football, and I'm certainly looking forward to welcoming Ian Dowie back into the media spotlight.
By the way, are you actually suggesting (and I could be way off the beaten track with this one) that you have met, and had business relations with (heck, relations of any nature), Dominic Jordan?
