    If this has been going on since the 7th of June it's pathetic. The FA shift have stepped in amd kicked this clown out as unfit owner, something along the lines of Oyston. Then it's up for grabs with this other group. They don't half fanny about. So the FL could have lost 3 Lancashire club's, in slightly different circumstances. The people that rally round a club like Blackpool or Bury, the fans, the local community, the local MP etc, from every league and non league club should all be coming together and DEMANDING far tougher legislation on potential new owners and financial fair play rules to be informed from next season. Otherwise we're going to be stuck with this fiasco every season.

    I've come back from Gigg Lane and it's felt emotional, even if all we've seen tonight is part of a key movement in the overall saga. C&N Sporting Risk, this London-based consortium headed by Henry Newman and Rory Campbell, have apparently been in private talks since 7th June. While Dale claims their bid was accepted, their very brief statement danced around the point. Meanwhile the EFL claim to be continuing discussions with the "potential purchaser" in order to extend the deadline for Bury's position in the football league. A bid for the club has been reported to be £200k, while the EFL's news seems to imply Bury are reprieved tonight subject to an update in the morning/Tuesday/whenever, at which point an extension would be granted to hopefully sort out the club's continued existence to finally kick-off this season. So three hurdles of ultra-short-, short- and medium-term survival will have to be cleared. Bury's MP has been on the case and is earning praise from the fans, so his tempered messages from tonight are important to keep in mind. James Frith MP tells us that he's been working with C&N for ten weeks discreetly, despite once having their cover blown by someone uninvolved in a takeover. He mentions that the deadline extension needs to be granted to deal with "[f]unds, agreement, due diligence and peace of mind", which are "practical priorities" that the EFL mustn't call time on. Meanwhile, since the EFL do mention working on an extension in their tweet, it would be both bad PR and strange for them not to be seeking this agreement soon. And if C&N have been involved for so long, as fishy as they could turn out to be if the season gets going for Bury, they've acquitted themselves satisfactorily so far. Should this be cleared, then the next challenges are the matter of the massive debt, the question of who holds Gigg Lane, and what performances on the pitch are going to look like with some bizarre youth squad of indeterminate form, in that order. That will be extraordinarily tough too. No-one seems to know where that money would come from, while big-money saviours tend to want their pound of flesh straight after. Through all appearances, Steve Dale has played at brinkmanship, messing with thousands of people's hearts while today saying that he'd never even heard of Bury before taking them over, and has no intention on visiting the town. I wonder how the ever-so-sensible people who want to blame Bury as an wider entity than these numpties, and subject their fans to the misery of liquidation and North West Counties football, make of the fact these woes have been caused by a spare few men who never once had the club or its interests at heart, rather than those who do all the yards, the cheering, the booing and the crying.
  5. Yesterday
  6. That England cricket team are a disgrace. The stick i am getting here in Aus is deafening, i just tell them i am not an Englishman i am a Yorkshireman. Town will score more goals than England get runs this season.
  7. Brian Redfearn's funeral will take place at Rawdon Crematorium on Wednesday, 28 August at 11.40am. His son Neil has said that anyone is welcome to go and pay their respects.
  8. Scored very tidily for us at Bristol Rovers.
  9. You're confusing him and Peniket, who did play his way back into being a decent enough striker - always able to pop up with a crucial goal in important games. Boden wasn't out for a year with us whatsoever

    Probably the end town fans used to take more than any other in the 80’s , appears they have a buyer
  11. Absolute legend. Passion. In abundance.
  12. We haven’t conceded at The Shay yet. 2-0 #fortressshay
  13. Non-members can join on the night - it's free this year anyway.
  14. He started as a good striker for us... He got injured out for a year .. then we never let him play his way back to being a good striker that my worry with macdonald .. it takes time for a player to rebuild their confidence after a really serious injury we need to give him time

    I find the "latest news" from Bury's website a bit surprising: Club News Ticket Office Update 19 August 2019 Bury FC Media buryfcofficial 34112 views The Ticket Office will be closed for the next two days (Monday 19th August 2019 & Tuesday 20th August 2019). It will reopen on Wednesday 21st of August 2019 at 9am. We would like to apologise to supporters for any inconvenience this may cause.

    And bearing all the above in mind going bust is probably the best option...
  17. We soon knocked that out of him.
  18. Yes we quite often have a big impact on players careers..... especially forwards
  19. Boden was a good striker before he joined us .

    The problem that I see is that if somehow they can get rid of Dale and service the debt to avoid being kicked out, then what? They are pretty much snookered for the rest of this season and would be making a return to L2 next season at best, with no players or money. They need someone to not only buy off the current shyster, but then settle the current debts and have money left to run the club... And a few hours. It looks like they are dead in the water.
  21. Point proved!!! Look at the teams these guys played/play for. Basically the top of the table. Scott Bodens transfer from Gateshead to Chesterfield coincides with their turn around in much the same way as ours did with Rodney.

    Still 2 bidders apparently in the mix. Hope they pull through, although it still annoys me it's being portrayed a national outcry just because they're at step 3 when many similar sized clubs at step 5 have been going bust almost on a bi-annual basis for a long long time.
  23. Simple job for Brown, Clarke et al tomorrow - wind the petulant little bugger up and watch him implode. A little tug on the pony tail should be enough.
  24. I’m going on the 11th. Don’t drink all the beer save some for me.
  25. Everybody says we are missing a top striker a 20 plus a season last year there was five Ironically Boden was one of those .. can’t remember anybody on here describing him as a top striker shows how much we know about football
