    Bolton Wanderers - Takeover Completed

    I would let Nigel Pearson sit on my face if there were a universe where this could happen.

    Some really exciting signings there to be honest. A blend of seasoned pros across the divisions, coupled with some the exciting youth who have excelled under horrible circumstances. Permission to get giddy ... Can a miracle happen? EEEEEEE I E I E I O
  3. Whoops. It's another fiver! Don't care, there's still cause for optimism. Two weeks with no games, to bring in a squad of seasoned professionals, blend them with a few of the decent YOOF, and away we go. Only gotta catch up 15 points, over another 41 games. KTF.

    Bolton Wanderers - Takeover Completed

    That is an excellent appointment for where we are right now. Two Bolton boys running their hometown club, and known for attacking football. Absolutely what we need to bring together our fanbase and build that 'us against the world' mentality we'll need if we have any hope of performing miracles this year.
  5. Cantwell looks shit hot. £50m to United next season .

    Jack Hobbs signed, with plenty of others like Craig Conway, Will Buckley and other training with the club expected to sign soon. I hope they keep it under wraps, if they do sign any more. Let Gillingham assume they're playing the kiddies and then BAM, unleash our tired old journeymen. *Also, I suggested Sharon Brittan was Nick Mason's wife. Not so, just business partner. Never mind.

    I'm gonna dust off the old literary analysis and complex web of bullshittery from my English degree and go for 'Pig on the Wing', please. I haven't had a silly name on here since the old days, when I had 'Nolan4England' for a while, chortle. Explanation for anyone who can be arsed: - Celebration of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason now being indirectly involved in the club through his wife (close to the title of one of their songs) - Nod to the 'Trotters' nickname - Acknowledgement my youth playing style as a fat lad with no pace, but who could whip in a decent cross Ta dah

    That can be discussed tomorrow. All that matters is I have a club to support, and can now ask the admins to allow an early display name change Delighted. Even if it means that odious chode has made a fortune from the Eddie Davies Trust. Unfuckingbelievable that he's got away with this. https://www.bwfc.co.uk/news/2019/august/statement-on-behalf-of-david-rubin--partners-administrators-for-bolton-wanderers3/

    Oh he's a swivel eyed lunatic. Not a pot to piss in, hasn't put in any form of concrete bid, just stands in front of Nat while the local peer at him like a chimp in a zoo. Even the rag redtops clearly don't take him seriously as all of his leaks come through the massive Jewish Telegraph.

    EFL Clubs in Crisis (Bury Expelled)

    Also, I forgot my main point. Sorry. Commence rant: Bury's demise is a fucking travesty; it is an ebola-ridden, toxic shitstain on our national sport, which should never, ever have been allowed to happen, and must NEVER be allowed to happen again. And yet, after much crocodile teariness and insincere condemnation of the situation (while conveniently glossing over their own roles in this crying shame), those shithouses in their ivory towers at the EFL, at the Premier League, at BT, at Sky Fucking Sports, will have forgotten about little provincial Bury by the weekend because it's the North London Derby which will get blasted to 190 countries around the world, and selling fucking Harry Kane bedsheets to kids in Nicaragua is far more important to them than protecting, celebrating, even fucking remembering the 134 year history of a traditional football club at the heart of its heavily working class community. ** One Bury fan I know took his 9 year old daughter to Gigg Lane every fortnight; it was 'their thing' (he's split from the mother), and it has been instrumental in them keeping their father/daughter relationship so healthy. I won't copy out his Facebook post from this evening on here, but it is genuinely one of the most heartbreaking things I've ever read. /rant

    EFL Clubs in Crisis (Bury Expelled)

    To be honest, Stoke are the next club I'd fear for. Genuinely. How long are the Coates family going to keep ploughing money into an unsustainable club? What kind of charlatan /banned Director would be allowed to walk in an strip the club's assets if they decided to sell up? Eddie Davies turned off the money tap around 3 years ago... Look where we are now. We've got a massive set of pillocks who support this club. STILL, people are talking about liquidation as being a good thing and are slating FV for not completing the purchase yet - they simply do not understand what that word means. No players, no stadium, no staff, no history, no BWFC. NOTHING. And these loons see it all as a big fucking joke.

    Still alive, while Bury have died. 14 more days of torture, although, in reality, it could be over by the time I wake up (if I get to sleep), as the administrators have said that liquidation process is due to commence now. It's increasingly looking like, if we survive this, Michael James needs a statue alongside Nat Lofthouse.

    Unfortunately, while your solution is steeped in goodwill, all that would happen in any kind of 'failsafe' scenario is the allowance for more clubs down the ladder to overspend in an effort to remain competitive. The sport's entire system is broken. But then, so is the global banking system, and even then, all we choose to do is write absent tweets that say #99%. Nothing will change in football for now.

    While she is definitely warming up her vocal chords, the fat lady hasn't sung yet. I hope I don't have to comment on here between tears and sniffles tomorrow, but I'm currently optimistic that this is all just high level insolvency brinksmanship. I mean, we can't die like this. Can we?
