    Taken over?

    Somehow the sale of season tickets has to be squeezed in between coming out of admin and the first match of the season as well. I presume the systems are all still in place for us to renew. Normally we'd be in that early bird phase now till the 1st week in June. But printing out the big leaflet they normally post to all ST holders must cost a fair whack and take a bit of effort, so can't really see that being done at the moment.

    I think the first mention of a strike/non payment of wages was 2 months before KA came in. Was just reading some of the older threads and we went through all this shit then, HMRC winding up order, wages not paid...

    Trying to remember what the feeling was on here at the end of August when we were top of the table and had won 3 of the first 4. How many were baying for Parky's blood then? And what changed - was it just a freak blip?

    The "next manager" problem is confounded by the fact we're in league one. If and when we get back in the Championship we need a manager who can compete at that level and have a proper go at Premier League promotion. Unfortunately the kind of managers with that experience are not going to want to come to a decimated team in League One (unless they have bottomless pockets and an embargo-less transfer window).

    Whether he stays or goes, like him or don't like him, he did get us promoted back up from L1 at the first attempt last time and I'm sure he'll be using that as the main argument to whoever his new boss is to stay.

    I doubt that the people in London who pay that kind of money when they go out and eat would probably give a flying fuck about poor Northerners. £19.50 for Fish and Chips at Langans.

    "You're looking at the new boss of Bolton" Hope we hear that line in a different context soon.

    Was reading about a few clubs who've had admin/points deductions, and Chester City is a worrying example, got points deducted for going into admin, then got it increased after a winding up order by the HMRC. Then players refused to play a fixture due to non payment of wages, the result of which was expulsion from the league...(Although that was the Conference league so probably different rules) "In the summer of 2009 Chester City was placed into the hands of administrators with debts of £7 million, inclusive of Stephen Vaughan's £5.5 million investments,[31] which incurred a 10-point penalty. This in turn was increased to a 25-point penalty once the HMRC overturned a cva" "On 9 February 2010, Chester City failed to fulfill a fixture at Forest Green Rovers. It was reported by the BBC that the players refused to get on the team bus and that the players had also threatened twice to strike following non-payment of wages.[39] Three days later, the Football Conference suspended Chester for seven days, during which their fixtures were suspended. The suspension was to allow them to put their finances in order and respond to the charge of breaking five separate Conference rules. The breaches include the abandoned game against Forest Green and the cancelling of a game due to an unpaid police bill.[40] At a meeting of the Football Conference board on 18 February, it was recommended that Chester be expelled from the league because the members of the board "failed to be convinced" that the club would fulfill its fixtures." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chester_City_F.C.

    Maybe they can loan us Fellaini for a season.

    12 points is nothing to the better clubs, just the same as having a poor run of form and losing 4 but winning most others. After all, look at the top of League One as it finished... Charlton/Portsmouth/Sunderland will still be in play off places even with -12.

    Coventry is slightly different in that the administrator then liquidated after ages in admin, and sold the company back to SISU holdings who were the owners before administration. Not really sure how that can be legal, but that's what happened.

    Awarding the non played game as a 0-1 home defeat is already a points deduction as we could have won that one

    Are Warburtons still Bolton based? £500 million a year turnover, surely they could buy into us. If they can afford Robert De Niro for the latest ad...

    If I'm reading it correctly, the administrator sold it back to the previous owner under a different guise. Surely the difference now is that KA would not want to buy it back.
