    Fans are not expecting them to win any matches this season as most players have left.
    Current owner is pushing for a CVA by 9 July and the inevitable points deduction.

    Only shining light for them is that Dave Jones is assistant who did know something about football at certain stages of his career.
    Quite possible there are a number of other clubs that are only a couple of steps behind Bury in this respect - saddened that they are in this predicament

    'The players say they have not been paid for 20 weeks and had no communication with the club's administrator'

    People say players are massively over paid for a living, wonder how they're coping now? Not good at all.

    The PFA can make discretionary payments, as far as I know the cash has to be paid back.
    20 weeks without pay is a ridiculous situation to be in.

    Any progress on the sale of Bury FC ?

    Statement by club

    I have seen the statement released by the players today. While it is riddled with factual inaccuracies, their position is understandable and one with which I have a great deal of sympathy. The fact they have not been paid would appear to have had a major impact on their collective mindset.

    The ongoing situation has been continuously explained to them by Phil Parkinson. My team and I have been in dialogue with him since the first day of the Administration. We have also spoken to various agents, the PFA and the LMA to keep them apprised of the situation.

    As football creditors, Phil, his staff and the players will get paid in full once the deal has been completed. This is in contrast to other creditors, who will receive nothing approaching that level of compensation.

    Yes, the players have had to suffer hardship in terms of limited training facilities but decisions had to be taken in terms of finances and the need to prioritise payment of club staff was an overriding factor.

    And, with the greatest respect to the players, they do not have a full understanding or appreciation of the club’s ongoing financial position. I am working within a budget to keep this club alive until a sale is completed.

    However, the fact is I share many of the same frustrations as the players, the staff and all the fans who have shown incredible resilience and patience throughout this process.

    We have reached a stage in the deal to sell the club to Football Ventures and are working tirelessly to complete the transaction.

    It has been a complex process and one which has taken longer than I would have preferred considering the new season starts in just over two weeks. Now it is time for all parties to recognise the necessity for swift action and decisions to safeguard the future of the club.

    Hopefully, supporters will be reassured by the fact plans for player recruitment, season ticket and match day prices are all in place, and will be activated immediately once a deal has been completed.

    But one outstanding element of the deal, which is not under my control, is the sale of Whites Hotel.

    Football Ventures' ownership model, one supported by the EFL, is based on a deal for both the club and hotel, so I would encourage all parties involved to act swiftly to ensure the pressing timeframe for completion is met.

    I would implore everybody to drive through this deal and ensure this great football club is restored to its rightful position

    Iv not spoke to Phil Parkinson for months Paul. We find out whats happening next through local press. No one else. You say ‘with all due respect players dont understand’ how are we ment to understand when we don’t get told anything? ����*♂️

    Apparently a Bury fan confronted the owner of the club about two days ago to ask some pertinent questions .

    The owners response " I'll rip your ferkin face off"
    All recorded by other fans

    This is what their fans are up against

    Another two players have left and gone to Plymouth

    Sure they weren’t confused and it was Joey Barton they were talking to?

    Bury given minus 12 along with Bolton for CVA.

    Sounds familiar

    Must be grim being a football supporter around that neck of the woods at the moment. In the meantime, while Rome burns the fiddlers are paying upward of 50M for players. Ludicrous!

    The fiddlers playing whilst Rome burns?

    They are playing a different song to the rest of us

    Bury only have 5 contracted players.
    Their fans are expecting them to be expelled from the league.

    That will probably be the cork out of the bottle and others may follow.

    Question - If they are expelled from the league will the EFL allow the team that finished 3rd in the non league go in to league 2 and those who finished 4th in league 2 jump to league 1? Otherwise the numbers will go all to c.ock.
