Re: Hard to get a Haydon over this one. AFC Wimbledon (H) - 04/03/17 3pm

We'll start with a win. Go 1-0 up early on (Vela again) and then play out a nervy remainder of the game before nicking another near the end when they are pushing for the equaliser (ALF). Trust me, its a dead cert. What could possibly go wrong.....

Re: Twas on a Tuesday night the gas man came to call, Bristol (H) 28/02/17 - KO 8pm

Feck me another one - we had a spell earlier in the season when we where solid and knew how to defend, but currently the team can't defend for toffee, also football is about attacking & defending you don't win games if you can't attack effectively and create chances and score goals and also we have...

Almost to a man on here everyone was predicting a hard struggle this season, with nothing to cheer about. We are currently sitting 4th in the...

reebok cost £25mil for a 28,000 seater stadium stadium of light was built at the same time - cost £15mil to build a 48,000 seater stadium Apropos of nothing, of course, but new Wembley cost today's equivalent of £947m (Jesus Wept!) for an up-to 90,000 seat stadium. Just saying, thats all..........

Re: Saddling up Saturday

i've admittedly not seen that many games live this season, but lack of effort is absolutely not something I would accuse him of. Lack of killer finishing ability maybe, but - not unlike SKD - he's not in the team to provide this. He's there to hold the ball up, win it in and around the box, and prov...

Re: Accounts Overdue Window - 2017

There'll definitely be a fine for late submission - this starts if you are a day overdue (£200 I think) and ratchets up depending on how late you are when you submit - suspect the fine in this case runs into the thousands....... Give Companies House a few days to process them and then they'll be ava...

i wouldn't bother - once the company has sent the accounts to Companies House they need to be scanned and processed - it can take up to 2 weeks (at busy times) for the Co House website to be updated and a further few days for a copy of the accounts to be available to download (tip - from the page yo...

Come on fellas. None of us wanted Clough to go - especially for what we see as a "bargain" - but lets get a bit of perspective can we. At the end of the day I don't think any of us disagree that the club was, and very much still is, up sh1t creek as far as the finances are concerned. My random thoug...

How much did holding to for in the end? Was it 2m? If so, 3.5 for clough isn't bad is it?

Incidentally has holding played much recently?

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

For a company to file its accounts on a "going concern" basis, it has to convince the auditors that it has the financial means to survive from the 12 months from the date of signature. If they can't do this then either the auditors qualify the accounts (bad) or they have to prepare the accounts on a...

Re: BW Supporters Trust

"Going concern" is usually only an issue for 12 months after the balance sheet date (ie the company will survive for a year or not). Given that actual time has superceded a forecasted 12 months past the balance sheet date (end of year), then there can be no going concern, er, concern can there?

Poor bugger - hope something can be sorted soon for him.

This must have happened relatively quickly - he played in the legends game just a few months back - presumably all was OK at that point as he looked one of the better players?

Re: Allardyces dream job...

Sam Allardyce was/is a moneygrabbing cnut. If he had not managed BWFC everyone on here would be calling him as such Most likely. It's his connections with Bolton, nothing more, both as player and manager that make anybody care any more than if it were ( fit any of several names here). Sam Allardyce...

1-0 to us. Scrappy performance and they dominate but we manage to scrape a win. Gives a much-needed boost to confidence and we then continue the rest of the season unbeaten, winning the division by a country mile. The League 1 team of the season is made up entirely of our players and PP is manager o...
