League 1 next season

Bolton with a 12 point deduction for going into Administration and possible further punishment as no action has yet been taken for the forfeited game

Bury looking like they could go into admin and also have a points deduction

Rotherham not one of those big clubs who drop and will 100% get promoted or reach playoffs at minimum

Looks promising for one of the smaller clubs to invest a little into a possibly much weaker league next year and have a go at promotion

Been the same a few times while we were there. We’ve not been promoted in a good year. Far from it…

So Bury again have financial issues, but were able/allowed to sustain a promotion push…despite the previous season they vastly overspending compared to what they could realistically afford.

Utter ■■■■ take

Talking of Bolton again. According to the local BBC news reports up here in the North, Foodbanks now being offered for 400 employees (400! no wonder they struggle to pay creditors!) who have not been paid their April salaries, the players have not been paid since the end of February! Preston North End have provided the club with £2000 worth of food vouchers for Bolton’s employees. Could easily see Uncle Jeff providing similar help if a local Midlands club got into difficulties! haha.

Heard on radio this morning that Plymouth will be reinstated in League 1 if Bury go out of business. Been a long time since a club went out the league but sadly its needed to kick the EFL and these owners up the backside…

Only need Coventry to go bump next month and we will be back in League 1 next season :rofl:

Or even Bolton - not sure how Bury’s situation is any worse than theirs?

About time the league actually cracked down on ■■■■ clubs instead of throwing them bones all the time. Cheats.

Bolton will be in league 2 soon enough.

Last time they came down they ignored their problems. Kept someone lik Wheater who’d be on massive wages and halfway through that year they added Le Fondre who’d be on decent money.

Now they have come down with a shell of a squad and will hardly have players queueing up to sign with their current circumstances.

‘We can offer you £10,000 a week but we’ll only pay you one week in four…’

That’ll go down well.
