Yep all I’m getting is ‘deal is more complex than it appears and takes time but everyone is relaxed’.
Bit too f*cking relaxed for my liking - season starts a fortnight on Saturday and we're already operating under at least a four-win handicap

Re: Administration and recovery

Have a hunch we're going to be in exactly the same position at kick-off v Wycombe as we were at kick-off v York. Except with a handful of "fitter" but ultimately substandard, still distracted senior players. If they want to play at all that is. If it did/does get that far, it's worth remembering th...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Wheater back in training with us, per Nixon and Lion of Vienna.

Could be any number of reasons, but it's a little candle of hope.

Re: Administration and recovery

So what happens when we are no further one come 1st August? Do we chuck the kids in? Pull out of the league? This clearly ain’t going anywhere soon. I managed to remain optimistic until some time last week. This is now my main feeling on the whole thing. Have a hunch we're going to be in exactly th...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

£600k/11.5k per week is the "Championship" player cap embedded in the rules for a team under embargo - so not calculated on an individual team's financial basis. It applies in the Championship and for teams relegated to L1 until the next "annual iteration" of them providing their FFP/SCMP disclosur...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

I'm not sure whether the "cap" was set as a per player cap irregardless of our business plan. I thought I recalled if, for example, someone had signed Amos, then effectively within the business plan, the "cap" would've increased by £16k per week - or whatever the alleged amount was - then spread ac...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Mystifyingly popular in south London and shockingly now 29 years old, Macclesfield-born hologram Ben Amos has grabbed himself a year's contract at Charlton. Does that mean we've got around three/five incoming players off the wage bill? Following the lapsing of the four-year contract signed in 2015,...

Re: League One 2019/20

Haven't seen it mentioned but our game at home to similarly-strapped Bury - aka El Brassico - has been chosen by Sky's rubberneckers. Moved from Sat 7 Sep to SUn 8 Sep (noon KO).

Re: Red Hats and One-eyed Snakes - the ups and downs of new management.

It's an interesting read to go back a mere three months and see all the posters on here willing him on. I'd still prefer him to Anderson Better a fantasist than a narcissist What a very strange comment. I'd argue Anderson is the bigger fantasist than Bassini. I'd doubly argue that in narcissism Bas...

He's absolutely off his fecking head :lol: And even with all that - you get the impression that had he been able to show the "readies" at the correct time, he'd have passed the fit and proper person's test!

Re: Red Hats and One-eyed Snakes - the ups and downs of new management.

We note with dismay the interview given by Laurence Bassini to TalkSPORT this morning. The simple fact is, for several reasons, Mr Bassini was not the successful bidder under the process we have carried out to sell Bolton Wanderers. His bid was not the best for the club. Moreover, he was not able t...

Re: Administration and recovery

Here's a question. What happens if admin does drag on? Let's not go into why that might happen, just the logistics. We know this process has been quicker than most, but there's a corollary to that: have there been any other admins wherein the club has found itself effectively unable to proceed as a ...
