    On 21 December 2013, Boothroyd was sacked by Northampton after a 4-1 defeat by Wycombe Wanderers. The club were bottom of League Two.[24]

    Never mind, come and work for the England set-up, where serial failure at club level is never a barrier to multi-million pound contracts. Eh, Gareth.

    Me too. The club's a ****ing joke thanks to Hardy. And the way us fans have been treated throughout this 'takeover' process is shocking. Asking us to part with money while not even ensuring that there'll be a club to support. It's absolutely ridiculous.

    What the hell is actually going on? Where are the SAs? What's holding the whole thing up? How can he entertain new bids with us in court in a few weeks? Nothing makes sense.

    This ****ing club does my head in.

    People are FINALLY seeing the man for what he is. A complete deluded fool living in fantasy land. Anyone still believe there are actually SA's on the horizon apart from Michael Caine in Zulu.

    It's very obvious the situation is getting desperate now. No one wants to buy the club, well certainly not at the money AH is asking. If he doesn't sell or put the club into admin before the next court appearance you can guarantee liquidation is on the cards.

    Question is if he can't sell what scenario is best for AH, admin or liquidation?

    Who's paying for admin? He had to use £35,000 from lifeline for pitch repairs.

    I don't think he can afford to is my point. Admin requires the person putting into admin to pay 3 months running costs up front. And with the winding up order in play, it's not like he can speak to one of the group's and arrange for them to pay as they aren't guaranteed to get the club out of admin as you can't do a prepack (due to the winding up order). One good thing, it's getting to the point of him being desperate, Administration would lead to him being able to pay the loans off from PLG and PI but he'd get nothing personally but he probably can't afford it. Liquidation would mean he gets nothing, loses the golf course and would be investigated as to why he was running the club the way he was. Looks like he'll be getting desperate to sell soon enough

    If he had the capacity to sort it out he wouldn't have got into this mess in the first place.

    Do you or anyone know if you can put a company in administration if there is already a winding up order?

    I recall RT being praised for not "putting us into administration" when he took over from Munto and so had to bear the debt costs but I never worked out how he could have done otherwise. I presume you can't buy a business then put it straight into admin then buy it back.

    If we are liquidated, Hardy gets nothing, and a lot of bad publicity. His reputation will be even more destroyed. If we go into admin, Hardy gets nothing, his reputation is slightly less affected. If he (somehow) gets a sale, he might get something. There is huge incentive for him to sell, if he can. Also at stake is his fitness as a company director, if he does anything to cause him problems with companies house, it could affect his other business interests and anything he wants to do in the future. I have no faith in any of his recent statements because they haven’t happened, sale deadline, HMRC paid in full, etc. But, I do think his personal interest matches ours as supporters, club survival and a successful sale. Where our interests diverge, is that his main interest is a sale, any sale, our interest is sale to someone who will invest in the club.

    I did read that, he's playing with fire if it hasn't. Wouldn't that be a legal issue?

    Yes from a business sense he is hopeless I agree but I bet he has easily got the funds to personally pay what is needed but of course he won't dip into his own money.

    I don't feel sorry for him at all he will still have a nice big house already paid off and will still drive around in a s****y car I hate the bloke to be honest.

    So Hardy is saying the lifeline has donated £35,000 for the pitch renovation. Let’s be clear here... no such renovation has taken place. The reno wash called off 2 days before it was meant to start. Groundstaff have done it themselves #Notts

    So has £35k been taken out of Lifeline and used for something else?

    Do we need to worry about the scrap value of some lumps of bronze outside the ground?

    One thing's for certain, they'll not be a sale anytime soon!!!

    I've given up, after over 40 years a supporter I really don't care anymore. Hardy has completely killed my love for football
