A group of organised Charlton Athletic fans have paid for a billboard to protest against club owner Roland Duchatelet.
The organisation campaigning for the Belgian businessman to sell the club, the Coalition Against Roland Duchatelet (CARD), have included the display as part of their protests for Chartlon’s Championship meeting against fellow strugglers Bristol City on Saturday.
The billboard contains the message “here before you and long after you’ve gone” and is located a short distance from The Valley.

CARD are set to hand out over 100 banners containing a message to the owner, though there will be no post-game protest.
A statement from the group read: “CARD has produced more than 100 banners with a message for the owners which we are asking ‘customers’ to display during today’s match with Bristol City.
“It is unlikely the club will try to remove these banners from display during the match as it will not be feasible. However, if any supporters ARE approached by a steward, please do not become abusive, as that is a basis on which you could be ejected.
“Another 400-plus black and white scarves will be available free near the big Charlton badge on the back of the north stand at 2.30pm.”
