Wendies charged after trying to get round spending regulations by "selling" Hillsborough to their owner. Problem being that they declared the profit in 2018, but didn't sell the ground until this summer, in fact the company he used to buy the ground wasn't even incorporated untll June. Looking at a "significant" points deduction apparently. Ooops!

Macclesfield players threatening a strike/boycott of tomorrow's game again. What will it take for the League to actually start taking some action on deadbeat owners? (rhetorical question, obviously I know they won't do anything)

Glenn Tamplin has bought Romford and immediately appointed himself manager and signed 15 players. Since Tuesday. What could possibly go wrong?

Bolton finally have a point. Just in time to have it taken off them next week when their penalty for the games they missed last season and this is announced Sad

I legit saw him play the other weekend!!
I was in Prague watching my adopted Czech team FC Viktoria Žižkov vs Brno. Brno chucked him on in the last 20 as they adopted some hoof ball to chase the game. He's still a massive donkey.

Probs be 12pts I guess? Although technically they can/will still fulfil their match v Doncaster (within the current season timeframe) but they will get penalised for postponing it, without consent from the EFL and not consulting DRFC. The other penalty is for the penultimate fixture v Brentford toward season 2018/19 end.

They got 12pts for administration. Now the league may go softer on the Doncaster match (as it can still be fulfilled) but if they wish to make an example then they will dish out 2 x 6pt deductions. Likely Bolton will appeal the Donny 6pts but I can't see the league quashing it completely. Possibly halve it at best so Bolton will have a 9pt deduction.


The searching question has to be; after further deduction, will they manage to stay up?

Best case scenario. They would have played about half their games or more just to get out of the relegation places (with no one winning around them for the next 10 games) and then maintain a form better than the teams below them of course. Essentially Bolton are all but screwed. Tough cookie for their fans yet they still have a club - for now.

Survival Verdict: Highly Unlikely

The FGR chairman seems to think they are up already and wants to move. With no progress on his M5 J13 wooden stadium, where can he set up Forest Green Dons?

The guy is an utter cunt, he’s deliberately doing nothing to help with traffic management to help his case for a new stadium. He then wants to build housing on the existing stadium site... very green hey?
Living nearby to Eastington and working in Stonehouse I’ll continue to object to the new stadium as it’s just a pure vanity project to act as an enabler to eventually build his business park. It’s just a scheme to make him money whilst feeding his ego at the same time. He also expects the highways agency and council to improve the junction 13 roads at their cost to accommodate the stadium, a real detestable character.
