    As I live about 5 miles from Hartlepool, I've got a few friends who are STHs. The feeling is that they will get nowhere near this target, and everyone is preparing for admin.

      In today's world of mega money in football, 200k seems such a low amount, but obviously not low when you're a smaller club with small income. Do the FA have a pool of dosh that can help clubs in crisis (with conditions to pay back gradually)? If they don't, they should.

      Well perhaps they can follow the Palace route, it hasn't done them any harm, twice!

      I believe in their case it will involve automatic relegation from the National League (including the regional sub-division), so they'd be looking at Northern League football I'd reckon. I think the days of a simple points deduction are gone.

      Why are they in trouble ?
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      surely Jeff would be wiser to wait til it goes into administration and then buy it off the administrators for considerably less probably

      Hartlepool United must find in the region of £200,000 in just 15 days to stave off the potential threat of administration.

      And unless outside investment is found, or owner John Blackledge again dips into his own pocket to keep Pools afloat, the immediate future of the club hangs in the balance, it is understood.

      On January 25, the club’s players and staff are due to be paid.

      A number of other bills are also due on that date.

      But, as things stand, the Mail has learned Pools do not have anywhere close to that kind of cash in the coffers.

      As a result, they are at risk of defaulting on those payments and it is understood administrators could be called in.

      The financial situation at the club severely worsened at the end of last year when owner John Blackledge, under the banner of Sage Investments, decided he had taken the club as far as he could.

      It came after he had pumped what is believed to be £1.8m of his own fortune into Pools since acquiring it from JPNG and Gary Coxall.


      Last month he put Pools up for sale.

      And while the bills and payroll for December were covered, January has seen Pools struggle to meet financial commitments.

      Alerted by reports of financial trouble at Victoria Park, Hartlepool Borough Council summoned Pools chief executive Pam Duxbury in for a crisis meeting yesterday to explain the state of play at the club.
