Did he not have the perfect opportunity to put it in admin a couple of months back?

If the accounts for last year are submitted on time in January, it will all become clear.

Surely ken's done just the opposite and kept us out of administration.

Aye and a few times over to boot. 

What benefit Sweaty Ken would get from admin is something never explained.

I think the suggestion is he'll keep the club going as long as he can to keep taking the consultancy fees

Till investment or admin, whichever comes next

It's as much (if not solely) ED and that other fan that have kept us from admin so far

Some of the responses on here including yours I'm afraid deserve the same merit? If you can't see anything up then I want some of what your drinking?

No idea if this has been mentioned recently .

I am staying  at the hotel and have been for over three weeks now . Wife attempted to charge s drinks yesterday to the room after the match . She was told due to an ongoing dispute between bwfc and heathcoates they would only accept cash .

my wife told them that we had been doing the same for all the period we had stayed and they agreed to honour charging to the room.

 

Its like fucking ground hog day .

As a positive though we have had to extend our stay on a weekly basis and have ‘struggled’ due to the hotel being so busy. So at least on the face of one area is flourishing

Have you ever been to any other company AGMs?

If you mean private companies, yes loads. I've chaired a few and explained the finances at quite a few more. But it was the first time I'd attended a Burnden Leisure AGM. There hadn't been one for years so it seemed odd to me that Ken should call a meeting, when one wasn't required, unless he wanted to make some point or other.

But it also seemed odd that none of the shareholders raised the issue, in the Q&A, of the  525K consultancy fee in the context in which it was paid or how the company was going to be able to manage its liabilities with loans that were overdue and trade creditors more than doubled at 4.8million pounds. The sale of Madine was a huge unexpected bonus but enough to cover expected losses and overdue creditors?

The new guy on the ST board said it seemed like a case of 'spinning plates'. I think he was right.

Why didn't YOU raise it?

Bloke running company that has debts and loses money monthly is spinning plates?

What a shock that must have been

I thought about it before I went. My main intentions were to gain a first-hand impression of Ken, see how he performed, see who else attended and what questions they would raise. I thought Ken had done a pretty good job so far, given the circumstances, and wasn't going to take the risk of embarking on an exercise that might easily have been construed as hostile or grandstanding and achieved nothing.

Not a shock at all but an improvement on some previous contributions from individuals associated with the ST.

Ah I see. Contributions from those with an agenda don’t really count for much anyway, however it does mean that Ken got something over to them/him at least

Sorry. if I have inadvertently misled you. The ST guy made his comments on GranadaTV a few months after the AGM. I doubt he was present at the shareholders AGM

Well done for interpreting my comments correctly, ken doesnt want admin of course and stay long as possible but unless he gets a buyer he’ll run out of time . Does he suffer financially if admin happens ? Anyway things cant go on as they are.

Ha going on like he saved us? This is my main gripe that he was happy to go in to admin as I think he found a way it worked. 

Lets be clear. Other people paid his bills and saved his skin.

To suggest otherwise is a bit mentalist

To be fair, I probably took the original comment the wrong way, taking it as a suggestion that KA was looking to put the club into administration

However, you now raise another issue

My understanding is that KA did pay the bills

He may have borrowed the money, but he paid the bills

I do agree with IT that things can't go on as they are, but I don't think that takes a rocket scientist to work it out

The rocket scientists need to find the solution

I always thought living within our means might not be overly popular long term
