Notts County on the verge of a takeover with an offer being accepted

Is the offer a 24" monitor instead of an 18" to make his cock look bigger?

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

All still going swimmingly in the north west...

Be interested to see the FL response to this.... https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/17565956.bolton-supporters-trust-seek-answers-from-efl-chief-shaun-harvey/

Looking like a two window embargo will be imposed shortly... and still no sign of the imminent sale https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/news/17566643.bolton-players-meet-with-pfa-to-discuss-their-next-move-in-pay-row/

Bolton had 9 away fans at Derby today. That's not a typo, you only needed one thumb (plus fingers) to count their total away support

Reported on 5 live by their reporter at the game who claimed she had counted them individually. Didn't take her long apparently (and now that I think about it, I pinched the "only needed one thumb" gag from her. Sorry)

Sorry, yes, Dorset-adjusted you could count their fans on the fingers of one and a half hands. Or there was as many fans as 3 mens' nipples.

Bolton are creaking.

The EFL have told the Supporters Trust that they are satisfied the club has the funding to see the season out -but the players remain unpaid for March.  The Council are threatening to stop the weekend fixture if no guarantees are forthcoming about staffing.  The players, if indeed not paid, are now at the point where they can provide 14 days notice to quit their contracts and something like all but 9 are out of contract at the end of the season anyway, with nobody in the club available to negotiate contract extensions or bring in new players over the summer.  Even if they avoid the winding-up order, the best they can hope for is starting next season in L1 without a full squad and under the control of a guy previously banned by the EFL from running a club for 3 years!

I'm numb to the notion that a team the size of Bolton will plummet harder than their current pending relegation.

Of course, the angsty Swindon fan that I am knows that if/when this happens to Town (again) then we'd find ourselves in the Western League.
