Wanderers Ways - passion not fashion

Recommended Posts

Going back to the Dingle numpty's point about Bury having been shat on while others gained favour.  It's a narrative I've heard a few times now but just doesn't stand up to any scrutiny.

Our 'favour' was relegation, a 12 point deduction, fine, suspended points deduction (for now) and a 2 year transfer embargo.

Bury were promoted with a squad they couldn't afford.  They were allowed to stay in the division provided they could show proof of finances for the year and/or their takeover went ahead. It didn't.  Feckin awful situation for them, not their fans fault but treated worse than us? Nah

Presumably you've not heard what they sang about Muamba nor what they sang about Sir Nat? Did you not see the flag hung over the bridge on the M66? The vast majority of them are United or City fa

I've been researching the prospect of Bury & Bolton Wanderers thoroughly online.    Or at least that's what I'm telling the wife when she questions why BBW is appearing in my search hist

Fuck them, fuck their songs about Muamba, but most importantly fuck them and their songs and banners about Sir Nat. Fuck them. They can go into 'town' and support one of the Manchester clubs

And also being forced to play games with a team of infants, effectively sacrificing the points that were at stake.

Anyone familiar with the old Haslingden FC / Stand Athletic FC  football ground ? 

Seen in the local paper its for sale - only 6 miles or so north of Bury 

https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/news/18170984.stand-athletics-former-football-ground-goes-sale/

Apparently its down by the sewage treatment centre 

Looks ideal for their phoenix club - architecturally similar to Gigg Lane

Suitable for housing- nice site, but look at the proximity to the river.

Hope they build the houses up high, with flood defences.

Just been told that it's been for sale for some time but they're struggling to get shut because of the flood risk- planning etc.

Been past it on the steam train countless times. If they were moving so far out of town then they might as well just share with Rammy. It would take years for a phoenix club to raise enough cash for a site like that anyway, as FC United are still finding out.

Put a football pitch at the foot of the stand on that top pic and you've got the away end at Springfield Park!!

What sort of idiots would build a new ground 6 miles North of the town . . .

It would make more sense for them to share with Rammy or Radcliffe Borough with the aim to get back to Giggle Lane if the chance arises.  There's a few over sentimental numpties who wont consider playing anywhere else. Some of these berks were shouting for a new ground at Pilsworth a few years ago when they were claiming to be, ahem, 'heading for the championship'.

In fairness I kind of see where they’re coming from, as the ground is pretty much the only connection any phoenix will have with the original club. The different factions that are appearing and uncertainty over what (and where) the future holds is exactly what I feared would happen if we had gone under.

Aye but they need to wise up.  They cant have both.  Bury FC to all intents and purposes no longer exists.  Get a team sorted to represent the town first.  A permanent ground can follow later.  Not that I give a feck any longer - reading some of them arguing for us to be kicked out of the league, relishing our every defeat - feck em. Tin pot tossers

Its a strange situation.  If the club still exists and needs to apply for entry to a league, its got to be more straight forward than a so-called Phoenix club trying to get accepted.  Obviously there's the small matter of sorting out which ground they use.  Makes our situation seem straight forward, but I wish them good luck.

There's two factions and they're both falling out with each other. 1 group is hoping a consortium can buy out Dale and take over the existing club. The other are trying to set up a Phoenix club to step in once the original club is finally wound up.

Whatever the outcome, Bury FC or AFC Bury wont be starting any higher than the North West Counties.
