Until I read this I never even realised that Soccer AM was still on Sky, I haven't watched it in about 12 years, it went quickly downhill when Lovejoy left the programme I thought they took it off the air.

I get the feelings of bury fans who like us in the past/present have been well shafted. However if bury are allowed into league two next year presumably the club that finishes 23rd at the end of the season will then be relegated rather than getting a reprieve. Don't suppose the fans of that club would feel that great, as bury with their shenanigans stay in the league and their club that did nothing wrong are relegated?

Yeah, it doesn’t sit right with me that Bury be allowed into league two next season. They’ve been expelled from the football league, they should have to work their way back into it like everyone else

surely they can't allow Bury back in unless the EFL shouldn't have expelled them in the first place (i.e. breached their own rules somehow)

Quite.  Its the same case of bad management which has blighted many a club.  Just because they are old they should not be treated differently.

I remember that when we were in our most recent deep shit the FL were quoted as saying/ruling that if we went into admin for a third time we would be ejected from the football league. We had paid our players and staff, had not been accused of illegal acts and had missed NO GAMES. The selective treatment of some teams in a much more aggressive manner by the FL seems to be confirmed by the Bury situation.

It shows a much more pro active approach. Don't know why this is the case can't have anything to do with us not being relegated two divisions on appeal! I was on the first not third March!

They didn't, it was a rumour/speculation that they would take that view.

I seriously doubt that any 'third strike' threat would still be in place so many years later.

I always reckoned if we went into admin a third time we should get to keep the judge's wig

Turns out Bury were deducting pensions from staff pay but not paying anything into the pension fund. A deficit of around £100,000!
