Spoke to 3 people at the club today.

No one has a clue what’s going on. No communication whatsoever. 

They, still, maybe paid today they may not.

It’s not pleasant and it’s not right.

Whatever is going on behind the scenes, at least have the decency to tell the staff what is going on.

That’s a concern unless they are literally looking to close the deal tonight and neither party felt they had the right to say anything. 

New owners wanted to make announcement tomorrow and make wages payments.

thats best case - worst case there’s been a wobble and ken doesn’t want to set alarm bells ringing until it’s truly dead and he’s on to plan b

Deal can’t complete until EFL have approved business plan. If Iles is right this hasn’t been submitted yet as due diligence is still taking place. That’s a big IF. Still I’d be surprised if deal was that close, I suspect end of next week realistically.

Sorry that's to simplistic, people have bills to pay, losing your job is one thing and I have been through that myself, but not letting people know if the wage is coming or not is just plain cruel. Hiding behind "that's business" is just utter bollocks we don't live in the 20s, or30s for fu*ks sake

your opinion on what should happen is very different to what actually happens...

anyway, it all irrelevant. tomorrow is a massive game changer for BWFC

as of last night, tomorrow was the target (this is a massive fooking fact). so unless something has come up today, that is still the target.

Fact according to whom? Or ITK? I hope that is the case for everyone’s sake.

I'm only going off what the man himself says about money coming out of the club.

Not much doubt the money came out in 2017. The question is where it ended up. A bigger question is how much came out in 2018?

But everything pales into insignificance when set against whether a transfer of ownership is going through or not.

i think folk need to realise we are a business about to go bust

it happens

and when companies go bust, people lose jobs

at the moment, i dont think anybody has lost their job

so hold tight and hope for the best and maybe we wont go bust and maybe youll all have jobs for a few more years

 

i know it sounds heartless, but its the truth

Spot on there. Mrs Manc worked for Citilink. Worked right up until late on Xmas Eve and on Xmas Day suddenly found out they'd gone bust. Owed thousands in salary, expenses, pension, etc and got fuck all back

Feel massively sorry for staff at BWFC but at the moment there's still hope. A deal is on the table so let's wait and see. The Twittermongs/local press/etc need to hold fire for the moment but won't as there's shit that can be stirred up aplenty

Takeover will go ahead  

folk need to calm the fuck down. 

Club is skint. Sweaty doesnt have the funds to keep us going. It’s why he’s selling it. This is what we all thought would happen wages going unpaid again none of this is a surprise so why act like it is??

Wish folk would just fuck right off with the doom and gloom

Doom and gloom! Yep, it's all rosy here.

I'm sure it will work out fine, in the main, it usually does. But there's no real excuse for not paying people, and not having the decency to warn them in advance, or speak to them at all.

Not quite sure where in that I said it was ok???

i said let’s stop the hysteria. 

Hes an utter cunt for not paying people. 100%. But nobody can say we didn’t expect their to be some sort of hitch with wages so why all the faux shock

You’d imagine that they take the money and pass onto Bwfc less the transaction fees, in a similar way as card processing companies do 

No idea how it works. I pay my card machine supplier by direct debit. If I stopped the DD they probably wouldn’t process any payments.

Ken knocked on, asked for my £30 .

Remember to be loud and proud !!!!

He's doing the rounds with Lee in a motorbike and side car. They look like a bad Wallace and Gromit.
