The new owners lawyers have to sign something and that can’t be done until Wednesday due to Bank Holiday weekend, yet the EFL have extended the deadline until Tuesday only.

That is absolutely nuts!

I sadly expect similar stories will start to play out at other clubs which are being exploited by other parasites (crooks).

The group who were going to take them over have pulled out of the deal.

 

Unless something drastic happens within the next couple of hours, Bury will be kicked out of the league.

Doesn't seem like an isolated case.  In fact, it's similar to some of the stunts that went on at Sevco.

 

1) Find a bankrupt business with a good cash flow from regular customers. (fans) 

2) Borrow at high interest rates from an offshore entity.

3) Repay high interest loans from new cash flow.

4) Put business into administration when cash used up.

5) Get tax free kickback from offshore loan sharks.

 

Oh, and transfer ownership for £1 to muddy the water.

This has to be a wake up call. 

 

Bolton, one of the founding members.  Bury are not, but still one of the oldest clubs.  

 

A shame for all concerned, but also a reminder of what a fantastic job we done as fans, and Bryan Jackson as an Administrator.

EFL have been absolute charlatans in all of this - utterly laughable fit & proper person tests. Coventry & Charlton have suffered from similar dodgy owners, and a lot of other clubs will doubtless be in danger of the same thing happening.

Always a fun question to ask people to name all the Lancs and Yorks beginning-with-B teams (also Barnsley, Bradford, Burnley). Two fewer, soon?

Indeed. 

 

Said it up the thread, that if this had been Germany, the Big clubs would have loaned the clubs money. 

 

In England, it seems they don’t care anymore about the traditions and origins of the game and only about themselves.

I went to a couple of HFC Haarlem games in Holland just before they folded, they'd received financial help and players on loan from Ajax (Amsterdam's 15 minutes away by train).

It wasn't enough to stave off the inevitable, but some effort was made at least.

Slightly different. Bury will go at 5 if no buyer is found

 

Bolton go on 14 day notice of termination of membership so technically they have 2 weeks where they can pull it back from brink but administrator has apparently said if no solution found by 5 that they will start to wind club up. 

 

Shame, lot of lads I work with are massive Bolton fans who take their kids to games.

 

Biggest issue among smaller clubs is that the wages that some of these clubs are/were paying is seriously eye watering. Football should be looking after its own but when bang average players agents are going in and demanding 6, 7, 10k per week, it truly is scandalous. The money in the game in the top flight and what some of those players earn is nothing short of obscene. Football needs to start looking at salary caps and maximum wages especially in lower leagues to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

 

Always remember a story about Marlon King who was apparently on about 35k a week when he was at Wigan. He is a truly pony player and should have been on about a tenth of it

Sky News this morning said that both would be kicked out if no resolution by 5 , Bury could get an extension but Bolton had to have the deal done or it was over.

I don’t think that the deadline as it stood helped Bury or Bolton with the vast majority of them being the weekend or a bank holiday. 

 

And from what the comments from the group looking to take over Bury were saying, trying to get a deal almost done with the paperwork being complex, needed access to their legal team and longer to go through it.

I think that's been overplayed, people with access to the millions required to buy and run a football club can deal with a bank holiday. The league also said that deadlines may be extended if things looked good (paraphrasing of course!),  I don't think it was that cut and dried.

Extremely distasteful of Sky Sports News to be running a ‘deadline day’ style timer counting down, Jim White seems to relish the heartache fans are suffering to get headlines.

 

Minutes later they are discussing Alexis Sanchez’s £500k p/w wages.

 

Any decent football fan would point blank refuse to do such a ridiculous report.

I believed the EFL had said 99% complete.

The Bank Holiday was an issue with the availability of the legal team.

Yeah and looking at from a simplistic view you’d think Man Utd or City could step in and help out due to location the majority in the area would support either or anyway but  if they’d supported  the local team then Bury might not be in this situation in the first place! But I know you help one then what about the next team plus if they drew each other in a cup you’d get the jobsworth blah,blah

Absolutely brutal for both set of fans. I hope that both clubs make it through their darkest hour.

 

Unfortunately, this is going to happen more and more, as the rich clubs get richer, and the rest of us suffer because of it.

 

Money is destroying the game imo.

 

Someone being on 500k a week is simply ridiculous.

 

Cap transfer fees to a million and wages to £15,000 max. 

 

I've said it before, but a drastic cap on transfer fees, wages and sponsorship is the only way forward.

EFL keep letting crooks take over clubs.

This is the end result.

Nobody who has ever been disqualified from directing a business should be let anywhere near a football club.

Simple as that.

Perhaps all these supporters of pishy wee 3rd and 4th tier clubs should cease bigging themselves and their leagues up so much and stop looking down on Scottish clubs. Every time you go down South or abroad you meet guys who believe teams like Charlton, Bury, and many others are at a level above Hearts and other teams we compete against.

 

They refuse to acknowledge, and even get annoyed when you mention the fact that they pay stupid wages to mediocre players and that the level they play at is mince. Just because Sky provide decent camera work and hype it up, that doesn't mean it is good.

 

Bury loved getting promoted last year, but they had players they really couldn't afford (like Rangers)

 

Bolton in premiership for years and they didn't even cast a glance at clubs in lower leagues or help clubs in need. Now they want help, but they are reaping what they sowed.

 

No sympathy for either of them, regardless of whether hey live or die.
