It will be Anyone But Ashley. A consortium of Stalin, Saddam Hussein and Idi Amin could roll up there and be welcomed with open arms
Sounds like some of our fans going on about Power!

Would no doubt pass FPP tests as well, despite all being dead.

Bury still limping on: to the surprise of precisely no-one, Steve Dale hasn't paid any of the money into the CVA he was supposed to so the company now faces liquidation. Which is probably something of a mercy killing at this stage, and will allow the fans to focus their efforts on rebuilding a phoenix club rather than trying to prop up the rotting carcass that Dale has thoroughly ravaged

Looking at it, this seems to be more to do with Dale trying to salvage some value (again without spending any of his cash, the Ken school of club ownership) with little relevance to the future of football in the town.

A very sad tale, there but by the grace and all that jazz.

Oldham now:

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/10/oldham-league-two-trouble-rent-north-stand

Ian King of twohundredpercent is working on a piece about the shenannigans going on there as well - "Oldham Athletic is an "I just had to close 42 tabs on my browser" sort of football club. That shit is *complicated*." Apparently there are layers upon layers of charges on the ground. Puts some perspective on Wellens' tenure there.

Admin for Oldham by the looks of things, could be a lifeline for Stevenage.

Itís obvious the EFLís fit and proper person test doesnít work, but what would take its place to prevent these chancers rocking up at a club.

If possible, I reckon a 50/50 ownership with a Supporters Trust or somesuch.

It is shit, but it might be more effective if it and the surrounding regulations were actually enforced properly. It would still be shit but it would make a bit of difference. But the football authorities don't care about enforcing these rules, they're just window dressing they got forced into and have no interest in enforcing.

Like the German 50+1 model.
