Have they dared send anyone to the grounds or are they doing it from the safety of the studio?

No. Reduced the relegation places to 3 (presumably 2 if both go) and retain 4 promotion spots. Bottom of l2 standard

Also, it's not shocking that the Bury deal has collapsed. The companyassets/liabilities as per companies House were highlighted on radio on Saturday. Crap, in short. 0 cash and 190k assets with 330k liabilities.

A dodgy chairman and manager should define the club for the players, club staff, fans, and town. Given our issues with shitty owners in the past we should understand that. They haven't done anything to deserve it.

Not sure what you mean. Would be a 22 or 23 team league promotion to and relagation from The Championship would be unaffected. 2 or 3 instead of 4 teams would be relegated to league 2. 4 teams would still be promoted from league 2.

Then there will either be no or reduced relegation to non league, additional promotion from non league to balance the 92. Below national league will like be balanced at regional tiers

The fit and proper tests need looking at, letting Dale take over was a massive mistake who clearly has only seen this as an opportunity for some short term profit.

Would they not have just gone bankrupt at that point anyway (I don't know the answer to that btw)?

I think that this expectation that there will be 92 fit and proper people with the means and ability to run all the football clubs at any one time is unrealistic tbh.

What I'd like to see, and it's too late for this (should have been part of the model for running clubs since they formed) is true fan ownership. A pipe dream.

So we are where we are. And it's going get any better.

The rich will get richer and the poor and incompetent will go to the wall.

Disgraceful comments from him again.

The type of ownership is unlikely to change any time soon but there is certainly work that could be undertaken to improve the regulations on ownership, I mean looking at this they didnít even bother to go through the usual process which is awful.

The process should at the very least be carried out as itís supposed to be.

Standard practice tbh, heís brought the club for a token value whilst also taking on the debt and ongoing running of the business

Possibly, I suppose. But it could have prevented a bid that had the chance to be successful. Now, 8 months further down the line more damage has been done and its too late.

It'd be interesting to see a list of things bought for a pound. Oh hang on...

Sounds like a profitable bit of asset stripping too. Ground is leased. Presumably from a company owned by Dale. So he can flog that on the side while all the directors of Bury can go whistle.

Just reading about the bolton and bury issues on bbc...

Bolton, meanwhile, had been in administration since May and have found themselves in court at least once a year since 2015.
In 2017, a company which owned more than a third of shares in the club was wound up - and that was after former owner Ken Anderson had reportedly been paid £525,000 in consultancy fees.

I'm sure an addition £125,000 was paid in consultancy fees to a firm owed by a relative of his as well. Nowt dodgy there at all

Its beyond belief that the fa stand back and let these shysters milk the cash cow until there is nothing left then leave it to starve to death.

Buy a club thats massively in debt for just £1 and then further strip it until even the marrow has been sucked out of the bones.

Cracking game ended 4-3. Bromley dominated and Aldershot scored their only chances, plus had one disallowed. Took my step daughter's boyfriend along and think he might have caught the non-league bug

AFC Wimbledon in the first round proper please

Sutton and Wrexham shouldn't be down there, Ebbsfleet have yoyoed and I'm not sure about Fylde and Chorley. Fylde had money but maybe momentum has run out.

Fortunately it's quite a tight table at the moment, do you think you've got the resources to stay up?

Fylde were up there last season and they have just sacked Challinor - Its a decent ground is Fylde and they have a half decent squad and should stay up. Chorley, for a part time tam are punching well above their weight, they need a goalscorer who can convert the draws into wins, if they get one of them I think they may just stay up.

After technically going down last season, Iím not sure they have enough about them this season.

Will probably rest on what loan business can be done in Jan.

Was going ok last year until Reading hooked a few back and then it all went to shit.

We've got a fella from Charlton and on his debut I sat next to his girlfriend, which I found out when she looked up from her phone and said 'yay, Alfie' when he came on. Saw her again yesterday and it's nice to get a bit of inside knowledge from a real life WAG.

Apparently he was taking his parents to Gatwick this morning at 3.30am and he didn't fancy playing the whole game as he might get tired

They're 7th in League One, I think they might be the highest placed side we've ever faced. I've seen us against Orient and Gillingham in the first round before but don't think either were that high
