SAVE BURY

Post by TANGODANCER » Fri Aug 30, 2019 1:01 pm

Time for the E.F.L and all the rest in charge of sport to get realistic.. You just cannot let a lifetime of support from the fans of this old-established and historic club just disappear. Two days ago it was "There but for the grace of God, go I (we); we escaped and live on, and Bury F.C should be allowed to do the same. If for nothing more than fair play, re-instate them and let their sale go ahead. Do it....

SAVE BURY....

A Brazilian mining operation have apparently attempted to save Bury and have offered £7m up front to do so. However, The EFL who, you'd think, might be over backwards to facilitate this, have said that they're not going back on their decision.

Christ on a bike after what I saw about Brazilian mining companies the other night they'd be better off with the cnut they had.

Don't doubt you for a second, Chief. We need look no further than Brazil's attitude towards the burning Amazon.

In fairness to the EFL - I'm unconvinced what they are meant to do. Let this Brazilian bid - that says they don't need to do due diligence go through - then what? Sure it might be someone prepared to unconditionally fund Bury with the mess they are in for a long period. But if it isn't - you are back to this point in months or years at best. Then the EFL get grief for allowing another sale to go through without the correct checks. You can't correct past mistakes so whilst we all know their incompetence in the here and now they are a bit snookered.

I think they should change the rules - make Bury sit out a season then re-instate the club (if it exists) in league 2. That would be fairest and be giving them the best chance.

I agree but the "if it exists" is a big if, especially with football creditors rule. Hopefully it can be kept going.

Understand the ire towards the EFL but the mistakes happened a while back, Shaun Harvey has a lot to answer for.

Yep his approach to just "patch everything up" without addressing the deep rooted issues allowed it to this point. He just didn't want clubs going bust on his watch. But what that has created now is a ticking time bomb and Bury are just the first.

Re Bury - the biggest issue as to whether they exist is not football creditors - but rather the utter mess Day has left their ground and physical assets in. When far east investors own a single car park space in front of your stadium and the ground is "mortgaged" at a ridiculous rate of interest its hard to see how they will survive.

However, if you take their league status away completely then I see very little chance of that ground not being turned into houses.

Looks as if the EFL may have had a bout of common sense.
Going to discuss the possibility of re-admission to League 2 next season.
