It should be in the rules where the EFL could temporarily step in and take charge of a clubs affairs as a short term option.
That would be an illegal act by the EFL or the FA. They can no more take control of someone else's business than I can come into your house and order you how to run it.
Its nothing to do with the rules of the FA/ EFL, its to do with the laws of the land
And to make sure fixtures can fulfilled, the EFL appeal to other clubs to nominate a few players from clubs and let them take there pick and take players on Short/Medium Term loans. I dont know why Bury could not have been put back into Administration, it is as if this is what Steve Dale has wanted all along.
Who pays the huge costs of administration?
Being able to loan players in would surely have helped Bury and Bolton, Bury would have been able to fulfill there fixtures and be able to generate some cash flow from Matchday Income and it would mean Bolton could have put a somewhat competitive team instead of having to rely on the Year 11 School team to turn out. Local teams in the Area should have been able to be in a position to loan players to the clubs in Crisis.
Bury can't pay its existing players or for training facilities, so how can they afford wages for additional loan players.
Ultimately, it is there creditors and fans I feel sorry, I know one of Burys creditors and it is not exactly pocket change he stands to lose.
Unfortunately, I dont think The FA, EFL or Premier League will do anything about to address this until one of there Darling Clubs go into a crisis.
There is not a lot they can legally do unfortunately
Is it not about time Wage Caps were brought in at the lower levels, I'm Burys case, paying 8 grand a week to player in League 2 is shocking, and I guess it wont stop until the The FA, EFL, EPL and/or FIFA/UEFA do something about making Clubs control there finances.
Again a wage cap is an illegal restraint of trade. If a business wants to pay someone £8K per week, they have right to do that. The FPP was the nearest you can get to a wage cap in English Law
I enjoyed my one and only visit to Gigg Lane in 2007, the same season I started to watch Darlo, we were supposed to play them on New Years Day, but it was either rained or snowed off and we ended up going down there about a Fortnight later, iirc correctly, I think it was Tommy Wrights first debut and he scored
The whole thing is an awful situation, but there is in reality currently very little that can be done to stop someone like Dale who wants to asset strip
