Wind-up Time

Post by dsr » Wed Mar 20, 2019 8:58 am

Three clubs (Bolton, Macclesfield and Ebbsfleet) in the High Court today. For Bolton it is very much a regular outing = sixth petition in well under two years.

Will clubs soon be competing with retail stores to see who can fold most in a month?

So sad.

Its been well documented about bolton and heard rumblings of financial trouble at ebbsfleet. Macclesfield in financial trouble is new to me
I may not live in the north east anymore but i still support the north east teams

Can't see any current updates on Ebbsfleet.

To 'complete' the post, Ebbsfleet have paid up what they owe to HMRC and the petition was dismissed.
So all three clubs live to play another day.

Not really I have personal reasons for disliking them immensely.

That's pathetic, especially considering all the financial shite we've been through. I can guarantee the fans of Bolton Wanderers were sympathetic towards our situation in 2012.

You seem to hate an awful lot of clubs and all seem to be 'personal'.

I think it's horrific to see clubs in crisis, the fans always suffer.

Pete's doing that thing again where he says something blatantly ridiculous or blatantly incorrect in order to get a reaction out of people.

He's a troll and a wind-up merchant. Not worth biting.

Pete's favourite pet Catfish (Claud) escaped it's tank, went outside and was abducted by an angry swarm of Bolton based ants.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Someone I was very close too was also a Darlo fan, then they met a Bolton fan and disappeared over to the dark side. Since then I have always wished bad luck on them, perhaps I jinxed them!! That person I believe still reads this MB, so they'll know I'm talking about them.
