    I get the theory that if it is going to happen now, then it may as well have happened 3 years ago and we’d have started the rebuilding process, but I don’t think there is any chance that it will happen now. There is still value in the club as we are now and that will IMO mean that we will get a new owner. We still own the ground, we own the training ground and most importantly we are still only 1 promotion away from the promised land (although I appreciate we currently seem miles away). Ken knows that the only way he makes some money is if he sells the club. I believe that he’s been holding out for a certain amount which he feels the club is worth, for one reason or another interested parties haven’t decided it’s worth that much. He is well within his rights to hold out for his asking price, if you have a house that you think is worth a certain amount and you are still currently managing to pay the mortgage, albeit the roof is leaking, the oven is broken and you’ve had to sell the tv, then in theory you can try to hold out until you get offered your asking price. If however you then start to struggle to pay the mortgage then you will start listening to lower offers to get some value out of the house rather than lose it all together. I think that’s where Ken is getting to, his levers that he has available to pull are getting fewer and fewer, all of a sudden £20m (which let’s say gives him £2m profit after paying the debts off) might be an offer that is tempting, rather than £25m (which would therefore give him £7m profit) which he thought he could hold out for 6-12 months ago. Once the asking price drops there will be more potential investors. People might say “If the new guy can’t pay an extra £5m then we may as well not bother” but people with this amount of money haven’t got it because they go paying 25% extra for an asset, it might be more out of principle rather than monetary. Hopefully this allows Ken to sell up and sail off into the sunset.

    We might just about be playing Bamber Bridge by now and fuck knows where we’d be playing our home games. I get it that it seems shit at the moment but in the last 2 seasons we have had a promotion and a last day survival with a pitch invasion. Some were saying it’s the best day seen at the Reebok/Macron/Uni of. It was only 4 months ago that we had started the season brilliantly and there was plenty of optimism around the place. Of course it’s very very shit at the moment and it does seem like Ken’s starting to lose his battle and we need a new owner now more than ever, but to make suggestions like “we should have started again” is such an over exaggeration.

    Granted we don’t play this calibre every week but, 2 men up top, higher tempo and balls in the box as I’ve said countless times it really isn’t fucking rocket science this game

    Lawton was the top scorer in Div 1 immediately before WWII. He was still 19 when war broke out. He really missed out on his likely best years. Nat did not pull up trees during his teenage appearances (straight from a shift down the pit!) but things fell into place once normal football resumed. As they were only 6 years apart, and both from the same school, it is hardly surprising that he viewed TL as a hero. Difficult to see them being picked together in view of both being centre forwards when there was no flexibility in formations until Don Revie played a deep-lying CF in 1954. By then Lawton's career was all but over.

    Forget Ken, Parky, even the players, its all about the club. If you really care about the club you should be at the Unibol this afternoon to SUPPORT YOUR CLUB.

    Safeguard the club in the short term, retain its current standing in the football pyramid, protect what has already been built over the last 100 years plus and hope a little bit further down the line you can fix it well enough to sell on or, knock the club down to its very foundations, rebuild and hope you don’t fall in to the abyss i know which one I prefer

    I can’t read Bonnars tweets or reports and he might be a great bloke but he comes over as a twat and that he’s a gloating city fan working for a Bolton newspaper just amplifies it even more.

    That just irresponsible. Everyone wants shut of Ken in favour of someone with deeper pockets (including Ken) but how is losing and missing out on £175000 prize money going to help anyone - least of all the club and it’s employees

    Is that not we are currently stuck with? Agree he was our only option, and without him at the moment we're fucked, but at some point this as got to end. I'm stopping reading stuff about us cos it's depressing and hurts. Had a two our meeting in Manc yesterday with two of our clients, one Everton, one Man City, most of it was football talk, you can imagine how that went. I felt sick to the stomach when I came out.....

    It was a joke you woman I don’t think he’s creating the mess, just running out of luck and ideas on how to handle it. The ship is sinking but nobody else wants to steer it.

    Spider- obvious question, why not just keep to EU standards; at least for the time being. I thought EU law had been transferred into UK law, such that when all the discussions are done, the bits that aren't required can be changed accordingly.
