    it was actually a case of mistaken identity.

    one of the Old Bill had never forgiven him for "Never Gonna Give You Up" and decided to fill him in there and then.

    heat of the moment.

    or Korea, quite a lot of people hate the US!

    Slater I imagine made the mistake of thinking that the Police would clearly see he wasn't a troublemaker, maybe he was trying to protest at their actions...

    It will be interesting to see what happens, having the Chairman of a top football club (or Charlton) attacked certainly doesn't look good for the Madrid police.

    All joking aside Ketman that is not far from the truth, what the hell is he doing in a situation like that when he holds the position he does.

    Bloke following his football team abroad and gets a massive overreaction from the local old bill .....can't see how on earth Slater has been in an innappropriate position at all.

    Shows he's a normal bloke and don't understand what he should be doing differently....sitting at home reading train timetables?

    He runs a South East London football club....he isn't the British Diplomat to Spain and her territories.

    Who knew Rick was a part time Spanish copper?

    The problem with the fall was he was expecting to have Kevin Cash there to fall back on.......

    Seriously though, no exaggeration to say he was lucky getting away with that. Could easily have fractured his skull hitting the pavement backwards like that.

    Give it time and who is to say it wont be, people on here were going into melt down when the good name of our club was darkened by the Murphy's wife/whore song when it was mentioned in The Mail.

    Saw this a couple of days ago. Not like they layed into him when he was down.
    Perhaps he will be in more of a position to speak up for how our fans sometimes get treated.

    Should add some spice to when we play 'em in the Champs League in a couple of years.

    Look at the cash rolling out of his pocket

    Hardly dressed like a hooli is he, in his Cotton Traders shirt, corduroy slacks and comfy boat shoes.

    thats what the Fulham firm wear

    Slater will sue the Spanish police for millions and invest it in charlton and the squad what a master stroke ;-))

    Posted this the other day.

    Foreign Ob still living up to their reputation!

    He was.

    The plan was to shine a light on the facist regime and crushing authoritarian rule still existent in modern Spain, particularly Madrid....this in turn will give further credence to the Catalan quest for true independence. The Catalan folk will be so pleased at Slater's quest they will ask Barcelona to give us Messi and Villa on loan as a sign of gratitude to the "Lairy Legalman" (as he is now affectionately known in those parts).

    Stage one of the plan is complete so just sit back and watch the rest unfold.

    Love the 'on club business' looks to be wearing a city top.
    No wonder he was so keen to back us in the summer. You can't beat (well in Spain you can) a Chairman who doesn't even support the team.
  • Options
    So you have the support a club to be the chairman now?

    And for those speculating - he was at the game last night.

    Supporting the club ur chairman of surely helps!!

    Didn't see a queue of wealthy Charlton fans lining up to save us from further downward spiralling before the current lot rode in. Unfortunately it was clear that we had exhausted that route and anyone who loved the club and had the dosh to back it had tried their damndest but it still wasn't enough.

    Doubt Man City's owners cut their teeth having rucks in Moss Side in the shadow of Maine Road as young whippersnappers but can't imagine many of their supporters are too worried about that now.

    Modern game i suppose will be less and less murrays and doug ellis's at unfashionable clubs like ours as time goes on and more faceless foreign speculators who probably dont know who the club is let alone it's history. Glad our lot are at least English and have grown up with the game even if not true Charlton fans.

    can someone kindly copy and paste text please as can't get on site at work

    Michael Slater, a lifelong City fan, has been identified as the man shown on amateur footage being knocked unconscious in an unprovoked attack that left him with minor head injuries and severe bruising.

    The incident, which took place close to the Bernabeu before the Champions League match last month, lasted for several minutes as baton-wielding police charged at City supporters.

    Slater, 46, has spoken to the head of security at the Football Association and will provide a formal statement so the matter can be pursued with Uefa in the interests of fans’ safety when travelling abroad.

    “I can confirm that I was assaulted by at least one police officer in Spain without any provocation at all,” Slater told Goal.com. “I have been in contact with the FA and I am expecting them to take the matter up formally with Uefa.”

    The fact that a football administrator was on the receiving end of an attack from the Spanish police would appear to support claims from City supporters that the violence was unprovoked and indiscriminate.

    Slater, a retired solicitor who was appointed Charlton chairman in December 2010, is keen to take a stand and is a credible witness to the heavy-handed actions of the Spanish police.

    City took around 4,000 supporters to the Spanish capital for the 3-2 defeat to Real Madrid on September 18.

    Meanwhile, City are on high alert ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League clash against Dortmund after discovering that several of the German club’s supporters bought tickets for the match in the home section of the Etihad Stadium.

    Dortmund fans signed up for City memberships to buy tickets which have now been revoked after City grew suspicious, with full refunds and cancellation fees provided.

    Around 3,500 Dortmund supporters are, however, expected to travel to Manchester for the match, despite the German champions only being provided an allocation of 2,700 seats, with the club putting extra security precautions in place.

    I told you we are Millwall lite even the Chairman's at it :-)

    In all seriousness a dreadful thing to happen and I suggest the Spanish licensed thugs police have picked on the wrong man this time.
