As a reminder for Oldham fans that when you think you've hit rock bottom there's often still some way to go, serial failure and conman Laurence Bassini is now interested in buying them. I can put it no better than football finance expert Kieran Maguire:

"Delusional fantasist Laurence Bassini, former bankrupt & banned from football for three years for dishonesty, confirms interest in buying League Two Oldham Athletic. Id rather be wanked off by Edward Scissorhands than have my club run by Bassini #OAFC"

Macclesfield have been charged with misconduct for the non payment of wages by the EFL.

Don't they already have a charge hanging over from earlier this season?

Looks like Charlton are in the shit again - seems like their "saviour" from the Belgian bloke might be a bit of a Jed

Not really in the merde, but shows how shit football finances are, and the way rising can just make things worse.

Yes, believe the punishment was suspended,  not too sure what it was but presume this may bring it into play.

And now their new owner has resigned from the board, but remains the majority shareholder. And still hasn't provided proof of funding. How the hell the league let him take over without it after the Bury saga beggars belief. The Football League doing a cracking job of protecting clubs from rogue owners yet again. Got to feel for Charlton fans, out of the frying pan into the fire

Hmm, we've had our moments too. Diamandis and Jed to name but two in relatively recent times.

He is claiming that he hasn't resigned?

Well, he'd better tell Charlton then, statement on their website claims he has

Reminds me of the Bob Holt days. Resigning from a football club board is a lot like leaving a house ....

I suspect the true winner in this spat will be the party who have the pot to piss in, if the guy who has allegedly resigned is the principal shareholder it would suggest that he is the money, thus as Jed discovered any amount of fan schmoozing and bombastic fan pleasing statements means jack shit if you do not have the pot.
