I thought Bolton and Bury both had the same deadline - how come Bolton got a 14 day extension while Bury get kicked out?

It's a shame that both clubs are at this point, more so for Bury given they've actually been ejected. If they can keep the club going, would they be allowed to re-enter the league lower down the tiers?

Makes you wonder how many other clubs are close to the edge though, it's probably more than we think.

I guess there is more potential for Bolton to recover than there was for Bury?

From the latest statements they put out though, doesn't even sound like they can survive that long.

Bury were further down the process than Bolton. Bury already had this 14 day grace period. Bury have also not been playing league games.

The last time any football league clubs went bust was 1992. After a period of Tory rule.

Coincidence? ;)

Labour policy is to give fans a say in how their clubs are run? How the bloody hell are they going to do that? :lol:

Bolton are saved. :D

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Incredibly sad to see Bury's demise. I'm absolutely gutted for the supporters.

Happy that Bolton have been saved! I can't imagine the relief the supporters must be feeling.

And, in Sunderland news, Grigg has broken his duck this season! Hopefully this gives him confidence and results in many more.
