    Poor old Bury

    You have to feel for their fans. The excitement of promotion instantly tainted by finding out the players haven't been paid. Then the manager leaves, as do many of the players. Next, they get a 12 point deduction to start next season for going into administration (CVA).

    Now they await a decision as to whether they will be kicked out of the league before the season even begins. Even if that doesn't happen, their fixtures could be suspended unless they can get security/safety clearance to play home games.

    So think about that while moaning about the slow transfer window.

    Daniel Ortega must go. Hero turned villain. Murderous scum.

      How these people manage to own clubs is beyond me. Maybe the EFL should look closer to home

      Its not just Bury with both Bolton and Macclesfield calling off friendlies as what players they have aren't willing to play in case they get injured having not been paid for sometime.

      In the current climate where the PL teams are cash rich you just wonder how long the EFL can keep the 3 lower leagues going with 72 teams.
      Will this be trimmed down and a return to regional leagues below the Championship in an effort to reduce costs for the more cash poor clubs.

      And this just a couple of posts below Evertonís New Ground.

      Somethingís gone wrong, hasnít it?

      Meanwhile, Bury will be appearing as Plymouth Argyle this season, a lot of the formersí players having signed for the latter.

      Oh, and regional leagues are not allowed with Sunderland And Portsmouth in League One.
      All opinions expressed in this post are my own,and are therefore correct.

      Regional leagues are the way forward - the cost of travelling could be a massive saving.

      Perhaps a levy on all football transfers over a certain amount could go into a fund to at least ensure peoples wages were paid.
      The amount of money required to save this old club from extinction is a pittance for most of the top clubs.
      My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.

      My definition of a sad git is any Palarse fan who has posted more than 100 times on NSC.

      Itís okay, though - Manchester has two fresh and trendy clubs to replace them.
      I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      92 full-time clubs is a lot to have in such a small country. It's been a scrap at the bottom for a long time for clubs to try and balance the books but maybe something will need to be done to avoid such clubs over reaching and crippling themselves.
