Yes, it seems like you do considering twice you claimed that Macclesfield have spent all their money on their manager.

Most surprising thing being they are the first club for 6 years to do so?? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48257398

Whenever I see an issue of Admin I always think of our old friend and what he is up to these days....  https://www.quantuma.com/person/andrew-andronikou/

Surely there has to be a further points deduction of at least 3 points. That would happen in local football. Otherwise there is an incentive for not fulfilling fixtures.

Given those pesky Macclesfield players went and played under the same circumstances, I'd imagine the EFL will have their hand forced to do something, talk of up to 6 points.  Haven't they also got to exit in a CVA to avoid another points hit as well?

Anyway, they are screwed for next season - no chance of this getting done before they need to be signing players.  Their current Manager is waffling about the need to keep the squad together - someone might want to let him in on the secret.  He'll be lucky to have a job and his replacement will be lucky to have a coherent squad of any description by season start.  Very few worse times in a year for a football club to appoint and Administrator I'd imagine, especially when it comes after every player in contract is now able to serve notice and leave for free.

Bury are likely to cut costs next season as well, and they don't do well when being promoted after spending someone else's money anyway.

Oh, and the Administrator was the one that allowed Sisu to essentially buy back Coventry from themselves after going into Admin.  No guarantee's for Bolton that this works out well for them.

This could have gone in any number of threads, but another great rant from Andy Holt this morning:

Quote
Iíve had letters telling me of their powers to sanction me or our club: But let me say one thing clearly. @OfficialBWFC have not gone into admin because I tweet concerns. @buryfcofficial are not on their arse because I tweet concerns. @thesilkmen [email protected] @SUFCRootsHall @oldham and many others (allegedly) are not paying wages at all, or have been late paying, because I tweet concerns. @Official_NCFC a founder member, have not gone out of @EFL because of my tweeting concerns. @BlackpoolFC fans have not gone years...absent from their club because of my tweeting concerns. @BCFC have not been deducted 9 points because I tweet concerns. @SkyBetChamp clubs are not losing over HALF A BILLION a year because I tweet concerns. @CAFCofficial supporters are not placarding @EFL with @Coventry_City and @BlackpoolFC fans because of me. Tweeting concerns. Supporters are not boycotting games in @CheckatradeTrpy because of me tweeting concerns. @SkyBetChamp clubs were not threatening a breakaway because. I tweet concerns. I could go on for another hour on this. The fact is all the above and much more is down to you @EFL @premierleague @FA ITíS YOUR responsibility. ITíS YOUR JOB to manage and protect the framework our clubs should thrive in. The fact is, Iím tweeting my concerns, because you are failing my club and all the....others. The fact is, you canít hide from the mess that has been created in our game. Who else can be responsible??? There is no one to voice concerns to!! Might as well talk to the wall. We need to talk EXISTENTIAL THREATS to our game. The first threat is inaction by the bodies looking after our clubs and footballís long term health and well being, not doing their jobs properly. Iím going for a brew now and may start with the rest of the threats later.

No love lost for either team but a decent gesture from Preston

And an emergency foodbank set up for unpaid staff. An emergency foodbank. In a game that pays some individuals up to half a million pounds a week, and where clubs gave Scudamore a £5m leaving gift off a whipround. Jesus Wept

And yet they were still allowed to go up. It's cheating. Plain and simple.
