RIP Bury FC?

It appears that Bury FC has now been expelled from the EFL.

Bolton granted a 14 day extension.

This is just sad and a timely reminder of where the game is going.

Fucking tragic,for less than snachez earns in a month doing fuck all at united.A town has lost its hearbeat,families who have followed for generations have lost their club,ridiculous a rescue couldnt be put together by even just a handful of clubs.

The warning signs are there the EFL overall pays 105% of its earnings on wages alone,its going to happen more if clubs keep chasing the lottery ticket.Without checking I would guess there are over 20 ex-PL status teams in the EFL,qpr,charlton,fulham,reading,west brom,swansea,leeds,birmingham,coventry,sunderland,boro,pompey,bradford,blackpool,blackburn,forest,derby,hull,wigan,hudderfield,cardiff,stoke,ipswich,bolton,Bet theres a few more i forgot?
Once you let one go,more will tumble for sure.Just look at what money is spent alone on PL clubs transfers,and think those 20 clubs tried that,no wonder they are in the shit,paying PL wages,having spent more than the PL earnt for them on transfers to gamble on riding the gravy train for a period,its a disaster except for the big 10 clubs not really threatend by relegation.

Thats not even a mustafi.....money in football has become unreal,and yet with so much sloshing about,bad owners means this will happen more and more.Before a year ago I would have said maybe villa could be the 1st big club to be against the wall,now its probably newcastle.As I said bad owners,villa changed theirs,Ashley has hung on,he`s just milking it.

All that you say is of course completely true, but would that be a case of throwing good money after bad. Bury has apparently been mismanaged for some years now, and without a change of board giving them more money will just mean delaying the inevitable. It is very sad for their fans and community, but Bury and Bolton are 2 of several clubs that are st the very edge of survival. Such a shame tp have 2 clubs from the same City to go to the wall. Emotive language has been used by the msm to say that they have been kicked out pf the league but surely they really kicked themselves out?

I agree bailing it out just makes recklessness an option cos help will arrive,but the league vets so called owners,the EFL has failed monumentally the fans of Bury&Bolton,i would also add blackpool and charlton to that list of having destructive owners,couldnt careless for institutions of over a century.

Sad state of affairs,its the workers for and fans of the clubs my heart goes out to.

The EPL have what is called a Fit and Proper test for potential new owners, but that test itself is not fit and proper in itself, and can never seem to weed out the scoundrels and ne'er do wells, who seek only to publicise themselves and fill their own coffers. It is all very unedifying all round, no one comes out of this smelling of roses.
