    Previous owner clearly an absolute bell, for a ridiculous approach and massive unsustainable spend. But the new prick, who purchased the club for £1 (and took on the majority of the debt) should absolutely not be trusted.

    Look at Kieranís write up. Full of confusion and uncertainty. For me, Iím of the opinion that the prick owner, who does not care a bit about football, is going to steal the ground FOR ONE POUND and sell it on. If you look at the CVA, it appears like he is due a percentage of whatever is recovered by the administrators. Based on the terms of the CVA, all creditors get a quarter of what they are owed, assuming anything is recovered. So, if the ground is sold, all the creditors get up to 25% of their debt repaid from the proceeds. Itís actually unclear who owns the bulk of the debt, now, but a cynic would assume DALE is going to be a key beneficiary.

    The pricks running the League let this absolute **** buy the club for £1, who probably had no way of funding the club, but worse, they have allowed this scenario where he can [probably] personally profit enormously from the crisis.

    Please note that the above is simply my opinion. The fact Stephen Dale is a **** is entirely coincidental.

      The PL is its own product now. They'd see no benefit in taking responsibility for 72 other clubs, who they could never successfully market. Yes the Championship IS a fantastic league, but only to a fairly parochial market. Nobody in China, the US or other European markets will give a fig about the English 2nd tier. Its not a viable product to sell, and if Sky didn't bolt it on to its overall football package, we'd barely see it. It doesn't matter how good their marketing team is, you can't sell 2nd division football or lower to a large TV audience, it just doesn't sell.

      By rights, the FA and the EFL should step up and get some more effective processes in place to try to stop clubs like Bury going to the wall. But each football club is an independent business, and like any business some are run well and some are run badly. There's only so much that can be done by the authorities.
      True Easy, but who in China gave a shite about Tottenham in the 60s? Or the 90s? The Premier League is a marketing construct, just like everything. Why are the historic, old and successful clubs less of a draw than Tottenham, who have never won anything significant? If we are still playing football in 100 years there is no reason it couldnít be Tonbridge Angels at the top of the pyramid instead - part from the new walls being put up everywhere. The barrier the Ďcurrentí big boys are keen to erect to protect them from now on. They are on the right side by chance, by circumstance of being successful at the right moment.

      Why is the PL so much more valuable around the world than the Bundesliga? Just Marketing? First mover advantage? Call it what you want but it was a genius move - if you are at the top table at whatever point the rules get changed. Of course we all hate Leeds, but why should Tottenham get away with being a ĎBig Sixí club when Leeds are historically far more successful? What is the measure, when is the cut off? Itís just marketing / promotion. Nothing else.

      Scudamore should have been given a massive send off. Oh. Wait.

      Once again it proves the League and or other football authorities are pointless. They’re powerless, beyond a joke. Perhaps the well run clubs should resign from, launch a new league with new governance and articles of association that includes something to the effect of preventing this sort of scenario as a condition of membership. You’re only allowed to join if you accept e.g.open book, transparency etc. Oh and no use of VAR obviously.
      ďEverything about this looks wrong. The run-up is too long, too straight, and you know itís going over the bar ... it goes over the bar, and Brighton have stolen a trip to Wembley! That is an absolute burglary! And that is the FA Cup!Ē

      The trouble is if Bury are saved how long till this happens again ? It’s no good saving them if their own residents won’t go to matches and support them.
      Other clubs seem to live within their means so why should others not ? They cheated their way to promotion now they have to take the consequences and start again like Aldershot and Maidstone etc

      I'm sure it's just an amazing coincidence, but if you take the first letter of each sentence of that article what does it spell?

      Shame on you .

      Football clubs are about the fans . Bury have decent fans and it will impact many lives . Itís not their fault .

      Really hope this great club can survive

      I understand your sentiments.
      Bury bought their way to promotion - like all clubs do. Even us mate. In the 70ís Mike Bamber bought us promotion, and that eventually led to the 90ís.

      And who is to say, if we go down this season, Uncle Tony says feck it, we will be back where we were in those awful days.

      Or like Bury, Bolton, Coventry are now.

      In the end, football should be about the fan base, and clubs should be a community asset.
      Unfortunately, since TV took the old First Division over (now including Brighton and Hove Albion), fans are very much secondary.
      There but for the grace etc.....

      But if the fans don’t go why should a club be saved by others ? At the end of the day all these clubs overspend and if the PL gave each of them a million they would go and spend 2 million

      One Team Short Shirley was the name of a rock band I was in during the 70's.
      How on earth did you come up with that ?
      I was in a punk band in the 70’s called ‘3 feet in a shit house’.
      We were looking for a band name at the time and were playing a gig at some small pokey place.
      After a set, the drummer and I went for a leak, when we got to the tiny toilet the urinals were full of blokes and that left the cubicle.
      We decided to stand and use it at the same time to speed things up, it was then we realised that one person could stand at the pan whilst the other had to have one foot just outside the door.
      Hence, ‘3 feet in a shit house’.
