The Addicks fans are venting over the manner in which East Street Investments were able to buy the club from previous owner Roland Duchatelet for just £1 at the start of the year.

At present, American-Danish businessman Thomas Sandgaard is hopeful of outright purchasing the south-east London outfit but his bid is amidst a legal battle as to who is currently the rightful owner.

As per Sky Sports, Paul Elliott, who led the ESI consortium despite being one of three prospective owners to fail the EFL's Owners' and Directors' Test, is trying to prevent a potential sale to Sandgaard through a court injunction.
