Re: SAVE BURY

The difference being that the Earl Of Derby and the Earl Of Derby Estate is alive and kicking -- hopefully they will recall their "gift with reservation" if someone breaks the restrictive convenants on the land.
I'm not a lawyer, so who knows what going to happen.........

Re: SAVE BURY

Gigg Lane was donated to Bury Football Club in 1895 by the Earl Of Derby. There are covenants on the land that state that the land can only be used for sporting purposes. I rent land from both the Earl of Wilton and Earl of Derby estates and have spoken to the land agents about Gigg Lane in the past...

Re: New Manager Thread

Evatt Out !!! Delighted to have our "manager" sorted. Says all the right things so I live on the promise. I wondered to myself who on this forum would be the first to say "Evatt Out" after losing his first game. Nelson is joking but we should have a bet... :) I'm delighted with the appointment -- i...

Re: New Manager Thread

Evatt is very well acquainted the highest/most prolific scorer in non league football - who has q £50k release clause in his contract. 36 goals in 32 games Tunde - at that price someone can take a punt on a non league goal machine. Pity its not going to be us - as we are not allowed to pay transfer ...

Re: New Manager Thread

Sol Campbell has a huge multi million pound property empire -- I'd hazard a guess he has more £££ than FV
We need someone who is 100% committed, brilliant and inspirational .... I don't think Sol Campbell fulfills any of this criteria

Re: Deduction prediction

Am pretty sure that Football Ventures must have discussed this with the EFL and been given an indication as to the likely outcome before they took the club over.
No matter.... its a great result for us... and we have suffered enough over the last few years

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

I think we have generally had a lot of poor players for a long time now.... no one wants to buy them off us ... and when they leave (usually contract expiry) they generally find their own level https://www.betvictornorthernpremier.co.uk/odelusi-joins-mariners-59029 Sanmi Odelusi being a classic exam...

Re: New ownership - Football Ventures

Well what sort of utopian business funding model would you have like to have seen FV use ? FV needed funds to complete purchase and ongoing running costs... so they lent their own money to fund a new company (one which is not likely to make a profit in the foreseeable future) £40million says to me t...

Re: The next manager

Not my choice... I would have loved to see David Lee get a step up... never mind I think Hill is a great appointment too

Lots of experience.... maybe just whats needed now.... a bucket full of lower league experience

Onwards and upwards.... I'm looking forwards to a great season

Re: New ownership - Football Ventures

LLS doesn't know who the other party was either - so should at least give the new owners a chance How does he know they haven't got a pot to piss in ? They might have just had a very good strategy to buy us for as little as possible (good business) No doubt we will find out over the next 12 months....
