Bolton get another 2 week adjournment as there has been a request to go into admin. The 2 weeks have been given for this to be completed.

Not a crisis as such....but this doesn't look good from a business point of view, and could seriously impact on Sheff U pre-season spends-

First thought would be- back them for the drop....not sure early betting/newly promoted team the odds aint that great. Might be worth hedging it on Bet Fair.

Seems that Villa are under investigation by the PL following the sale of their ground to offset the EFL's FFP

Looks like Notts County days are numbered. Would be an utter shame for the worlds oldest club to go bust.

Just expressing concern for the world's oldest club.

Oh you meant Sheffield fc not Sheffield united or Wednesday. I don't think they count because they aren't in the top 5 divisions and never have been a proper football club, so to me the oldest proper football club is notts county.

FIFA officially recognise them as being the oldest club in the world and awarded them the Order of Merit as a result but I guess you know better than the world governing body.

FIFA arent exactly the standard bearer in setting a good example lately. However if they have officially given the title of the oldest team in the world to them, I suppose they can have this one.

I owe them seeing as I ripped them a new one and embarrassed some of them during my VAR presentation when they weren't listening.

Bolton still not out of bother. Football Ventures all but agreed to buy them out of admin but they want the Hotel as well, as it is profitable.

Everyone's favourite* "businessman" Laurence Bassini reportedly has put in a large bid in for the hotel as Ventures will only complete on the club if they get the hotel too. Plan seeming to be that if FV fall away, it opens the door again for Bassini to get the club too.

In the meantime, the administrators have said they have referred Bassini to the police for threatening behaviour.

All fun.

Bolton friendly with Chester called off as players refuse to play. No other friendlies played so far.

Season starts in 19 days. They ha e only 7 senior players, the players do not have insurance, no season tickets on sale, stadium doesn't have a safety certificate, no kit for upcoming season, cannot access the changing room areas at the training ground.

Were Bolton penalised for not fulfilling a fixture at the back end of last season?

No sympathy for them, unfortunately. They played gravytrain roulette for years in the Premiership under Allardyce. It's taken 10 years but it was always going to catch up with them with catastrophic consequences.

I was of course being sarcastic.

It’s a poor trait of mine, however, 50p is on the table

They start the new season on -12 points. That’s hard enough. With the new season just around the corner it could get a lot worse.

They wont make it to the end of season.

Who was the last league club to fully go bust? Rushden and diamonds?

I think about 10ish years ago Luton and Bournemouth started a season on -19 and im sure one was on -30 and if they didnt get penalised would have gone up.

Their survival is totally dependent on a new owner isn't it. And only the vultures are circling.

It really is the consequence of that continued and ludicrous overspending in the PL. It's deserved, but it's been too long to really be properly linked to that in the minds of many.

It seems their demise is inevitable. Good luck to them is starting a Phoenix club and getting back into the League. Local competition likely to make that hard though.
