    According to the report in the post right above yours, it’s not at all down to just him?
    But it's Dale that has refused accept an offer put to him and effectively meaning the club will be kicked out the EFL.

      Brinkmanship. Also, seems bit like blaming the fireman for not stopping the arsonists fire.

      I might be wrong but to me as an outsider Dale looks very Archer like .... but without the eye patch.

      More of a Stanley, nobody is anywhere near Archer. The Sauron of Soccer.

      I missed this on TalkSPORT the other day, not sure if anyone else heard it. But a Bury player (Dawson) and the owner Steve Dale had a RIGHT old ding-dong, live on air. Here's the transcript. Amazing stuff.

      STEPHEN DAWSON (Bury midfielder)

      Listen, chairman. Let's cut to the chase. You haven't bothered to pay us in months.

      You've constantly lied to everyone. You've not shown facts to the EFL. You haven't shown that you've got the money to sustain this club.

      For months you've kept quiet. You've sacked good people at the club. You've not paid anyone in months.

      I'm on the verge of losing everything. I've had to listen to what you've had to say for months.

      You can try to say you've saved the club. Get your money and leave the club. Or otherwise, this club is no more.

      STEVEN DALE (Bury owner)

      Ask Mr Dawson: did he receive, from the beginning, 50 per cent of his wages?

      DAWSON

      Excuse me, 50 per cent from who? We've had to...

      DALE

      Have the PFA paid you, up to the CVA, 50 per cent of your wages? Yes or no?

      DAWSON

      They paid us two months' wages.

      DALE

      No, they paid you four months.

      DAWSON

      Steve, I'm not going to row.

      DALE

      Just answer: yes or no.

      DAWSON

      We've received two months off the PFA, which is a loan. You have paid me once in six months. I do not lie.

      DALE

      Let's get to the chase here. The PFA paid, on my request, that I would repay the money to them, which we've agreed. It's been agreed and signed. (You've had) 50 per cent of your wages every month since the catastrophe started.

      Is that right or is that wrong?

      DAWSON

      Lies.

      DALE

      Sorry?

      DAWSON

      Lies.

      He's got no money.

      DALE

      There's no requirement to throw money at them (today). It's been agreed in the CVA to take all the players and we've agreed with the PFA to completely pay the players up within the CVA. That has been dealt with.

      DAWSON

      (exasperated grown) It's lies.

      DALE (addressing host Jim White)

      Jim, you arrange for me to meet Simon Jordan and I'll give him all the proof to back up what I'm saying. I'm not getting into slanging matches.

      JIM WHITE

      Is it not true that Simon Jordan asked you to show him your evidence of proof of funds and you've still to do that?

      DAWSON

      He can't do it.

      DALE

      Look, you've got a man on the line who's just like the people online who just keep saying the same stuff over and over.

      WHITE

      Give the players and fans some hope here. You're still the owner.

      DALE

      I'm fully aware of that. By saving the club from bankruptcy from Stewart Day's era, all I've got is stick.

      I tell you something, it's no wonder chairmen walk away from clubs.

      MARTIN KEOWN

      Steve, can I just ask. I'm just looking for a solution now. Is it not in the best interests if you step aside?

      Do you own the land the ground sits on? Are you holding onto that for any reason? Are you hoping this club dies a death so you can sweep up and sell the land?

      DALE

      What a stupid remark. Can you hear yourself? Oh yeah, there really is (a financial benefit) - making a fortune out of it!

      WHITE

      Stephen Dawson has come on, he's a desperate man struggling to feed his family.

      DALE

      Do you truly believe that remark? That Mr Dawson is struggling to feed his family and getting thrown out of his house.

      WHITE

      I believe he's in financial crisis.

      DALE

      Everything with you guys is blow it to the maximum. Mr Dawson is not going to get thrown out of his house.

      He can feed his family.

      DAWSON

      That sums up everything. It sums up the man and human being he is. How does he know that I'm not getting kicked out?

      DALE

      They are allegations by you.

      DAWSON

      If I lose my job next week then my house is gone. Simple. He's just told lies for six months.

      He doesn't pay anyone. If he has the chance to sell I'm begging him.

      DALE

      Ask Mr Dawson, was he paid last month in full by me. Since the CVA, have I paid you every month?

      DAWSON

      Lies. And I can prove it.

      DALE

      No, I said to you: since the CVA, have you been paid every month by me?

      DAWSON

      No.

      DALE

      The club will not close. Fact. I'm the one who's not sleeping, trying to save it from a catastrophe.

      Well let's just watch this space and I'll prove it.

      I'll get Jill Neville to send you a letter: she's paid that man every month since the CVA.

      A lot of people will eat their words when this is sorted.

      Time to go if they can't play a fixture, simply not fair on the rest of the teams in the league missing fixtures and revenue

      But that would guarantee them missing fixtures and revenue! No team is going to be promoted to take their place this season.

      If Bury goes, another play off will have to happen for a team to replace them as their league will be one team short Shirley.
      One Team Short Shirley was the name of a rock band I was in during the 70's.

      Even Radio 4 are about to have a feature on PM!
      Apparently a director has chained themselves to something at Gigg Lane.

      They have to sort it soon, teams are getting a pay day from fixtures whilst those scheduled to play Bury aren't which isn't fair as these teams need the gate money
