    I hope and believe Bury will survive, this is egos at play, my cocks bigger than yours etc.

    We know where that got Mr Hardy.
    I dont think Hardy was ever going to win a my cocks bigger than yours contest. he made that pretty clear.

Ultimately both teams will end up in a lower position than they started as a direct result of this over spending and financial mis-management which in both cases has been largely caused by the businesses that supported the over spending going pop! There are a lot of calls for the FA to bail out Bury and there were to a lesser extent for Notts. I don't believe that the FA should have to do this as it ultimately not their responsibility to act as a parent and bail out their kids but is definitely is their responsibility to have the rigor in place to stop such incidents occurring with the frequency that they do. If Football clubs are going to spend so far beyond their actual means, they should have to produce proof of funds available in the event of such catastrophes that is held in trust for a period of time or similar, as opposed to winging it which both Chairmen have done. Bury will surely end up non league one way or another, Notts already are and Bolton are heading the same way as well. For all the criticism of Salford, Flyde and so on at least they have ownership which appears to be able to back them in the long term to achieve success rather than an 18 month flight of fancy.
    You raise a lot of good points. I agree and even with ourselves in that situation that if the FA bail clubs out then it's only going to encourage owners to care less about their responsibilities to insure the clubs are financially viable if they know they can run up debts and someone else will pick up the tab.

    What needs to stop is people taking over clubs, going all out and spend, spend, spend to then run up debts to which they want to pass onto the next owners when they sell it. Then what follows is the "negociations" where it's a case of owner wanting to get as much of their money back as possible, and the potential new owner not wanting to take on all their debts. So in the case of Notts and it appears Bury the club get drags through the courts, points deductions, embargos, administration, staff not being paid and at worse liquidation.

    This is where the FA can implement change. To enter their competitions all clubs accounts and funding for the season should be subject to submittal for independent auditing and review once a year. As they say in medicine prevention is better than cure and that's where the FA need to get tough on owners and directors, and also hold them account.

    What's happened with Bury, Bolton and ourselves this year has to stop and can't be allowed to continue where other clubs follow because it's going to ruin clubs and not forgetting the games rich history.

    Although I am in full agreement I suspect this may not be the thread you meant to post this on...

    Yes, it is, Swaley.
    I should have referenced it re the comments on Hardy. One of my favourite maxims is 'hate is a wasted emotion'. Like most of us, he is an imperfect human being, but in the end he did deliver us into the hands of the Reedtz and I believe he could have done a lot worse than landing us with Neal Ardley.

    I think it has to happen today or proof of such otherwise expulsion from the league a reality?

    The national media are all over it, there isn't the slightest chance of the EFL expelling them today, there'll be another extension given.

    ... small correction Siderney/Snobhead 2. It wasn't Kissme who delivered us to the Danes it was the threat by the Haydn Green Trust to take us into admin. This caused Kissme to accept a lower bid. We were 2 hours from liquidation.

    This will be a controversial point and I said the same for Notts with our extensions. You can't keep giving clubs extensions. If the takeover is not complete, it's not complete, they've had 5 (6 if they get an extension) games postponed, that's more than enough time to sort themselves out but everyone waited until the last minute. Maybe if no extension is given, it will force people to get involved sooner?

    They will get the extension, I just hope they get a buyer in place. Not a massive fan of Bury since watching Notts away when Hans Backe was manager and we drew 3-3 I think, my dad and myself were threatened several times on the way back to the station which was nice but still I hope they survive.

    I'm also not happy that apparently only 4 clubs in all four divisions pay the living wage to their staff. Makes me even sicker about the EPL, bunch of tw@ts, I don't even watch it anymore or MOTD, can't stand it.

    What I don't get, is what does he gain by their extinction? Has to be bad for his already tarnished reputation. Having only paid £1 for them, surely he only gains by accepting an offer.
