    The obscene side of football

    To both Bolton and Bury could go to the wall, hopefully not.
    OK this is all down to mismanagement by the clubs owners who will have made sure their own lifestyle will be maintained before waving the white flag but as always itís the supporters thatís going to suffer and my heart goes out to the and Iíd feel the same regardless of which club that was.
    But when you look at the money thatís in English football through the likes of Sky which incidentally will be heavily subscribed to by Bolton and Bury fans and the bigger clubs paying out mega millions for players and even the clubs below their spending power paying silly money on player plus the obscene wages paid to player.
    With all this I find it shameful that not one offer of help has come from the FA, Sky, clubs or players of any help regardless of how small that offer was.
    If a neighbour hit hard time people would rally round and do things like sponsored walks etc to try to help out but then thatís what we do, weíre the backbone of society who happen to care but Iím afraid there must be a cut off point the richer you get and all this makes me very disillusioned with the sport.

    Tha reight. Ar reckun itull get worse in next few years wi mooar historic clubs guin to wall. Bolton are founder members of the football league and Bury ev a good history as well as being another very old football club. What av noticed in recent years is that there are non league clubs with rich owners vying forra place in football league and wanting to tek place o the more traditional clubs and stay theear. Thaz got Fleetwood, Salford and the like being bankrolled. Afc Fylde eva few quid behind em. In 10 years time tha'll not recognise aif ot teeums in the 92. Tha looks at plight o Darlington, Stockpooart, York, Hartlepool, Notts county. All traditional football league clubs that have been badly run and suffered badly over last 10 years.

    Bolton and Bury are probably going art o business and face expulsion. They're the next step on from the clubs above mentioned as wages and expenses have spiraled over the last 10 years. At least Stockport and York remained in business despite all the relegations they suffered. Ar reckun Bolton and Bury will be put at bottom of the league ladder and have to start from scratch.

    We complain abart our owners yet our club is very well run financially and there looks to be very little chance of us getting into massive debts. It puts things into perspective.

    As for the bigger clubs paying footballers millions of pounds a year, well it's nothing short of disgraceful. The wages man utd pay Alexi Sanchez would comfortably keep most lower league clubs comfortably in the black. It's gone completely bonkers has football.

    Our league tradition and history is the best in the world. Gradually it will become nothing. I think that the only solution is to send all the mega money clubs from each country to play in their own super league and leave the rest to get on with it. Football will be a better sport and regain its humility if this happened in my opinion

    I see what you’re saying but the supporters don’t deserve to lose their clubs because of some greedy inept excuse for an owner.

    Easy not to care about owners and businessmen but what about the fans?

    3600 is still 3600 who don’t deserve to have the club they love going to the wall. I’ve been to Oakwell with much lower attendances than that and I would have hated it if someone had said it didn’t matter if we went bust because of the say at home fans. Perhaps the missing thousands thought it was the only way they could show their disgust at the way the club was being run as the Blackpool supporters did and luckily for them it paid off.

    Far as I know Bury have never had big support. They've always had around that average. I should imagine the geographical location of Bury has never helped them drum up supporters. Probably too many arseoils who live in Bury going to support United and City.

    Am sure if we ever found ourselves in such an unfortunate position tha wunt be so flippant. Let's hope it never happens ey.

    There are big clubs & there are small clubs
    If it wasn't for the small clubs there wouldn't be big clubs it's called the football pyramid

    It must be heartbreaking for the fans of Bolton and Bury. The whole structure of money in football has got ridiculous because of the amounts paid out by Sky. Look at Huddersfield and where they are now. How destabilising will those two years in the prem turn out to be?

    Good post Pass but only one thing about our club yes the club's being well run financially but not being run in the supporters interest of success that's what it's all about with these suits there's only 1 looser and it's not them

    Bury now officially expelled from football league. Can't imagine how their supporters feel.

    Aldershot were the last club to be expelled from league football in 1992.

    It's very sad , who is to blame ? SKY are sponsoring Salford FC Why , along with some ex Man Utd players , ironically one of them being a Bury born lad , From what I can make of it , the initial blame must be the Football Leagues , maybe more club's to suffer the same fate as Burys , meanwhile Bolton keep dodging the inevitable bullet

    The old Halifax Town went under whilst in the Conference in 2008 and were relegated six divisions. As FC Halifax they are now back at the top of the Conference.

    I suppose it depends on how they restructure their finances to suit . Atleast they've got parachute payments .something that wasn't around when we were there .

    While I feel sorry for the fans. It's a business at the end of the day and if you don't keep your finances running properly and manage your debts a business will fail. It's life unfortunately the Manus and Chelsea's and man city's are like the asdas and Tesco to the small local shops unfortunately .

    I think more ex players like the ex Man Utd lot at Salford will eventually do what they have done with certain clubs? I can see Bury rising like Phoenix from the flames with their new owners ex England team mates - Gareth Barry, James Milner and Theo Walcott!!
