Bolton Wanderers

From the Bolton News.
https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/1 ... -takeover/
WANDERERS will go into recruitment mode after the Football Ventures consortium completed their takeover of the club last night.

The long-awaited confirmation finally arrived around 6pm on Wednesday evening, which gives the club ample time to register players for this weekend’s away game at Gillingham.
Joint administrator Paul Appleton said Wanderers had been one of the most complicated deals he had ever been involved with but was delighted to announce the sale last night.

"At times, some of the hurdles appeared insurmountable and the frustration felt has been immense, not least by the supporters who have had to endure too many weeks of uncertainty,” he said.

"I would like to pay particular tribute to the Eddie Davies Trust and their legal team who, throughout this whole process, have been willing to do everything in their power to ensure Eddie's incredible legacy was maintained and not sullied.

Great news that Bolton have been saved, but its financial mismanagement thats landed them in this mess.

Exactly the position we were in years ago, though thankfully we didnt reach the stage that Bolton did.

I'll remind people that its Darraghs support and management of the club that means we haven't gone down the route of Bury.

I am concerned about potential inequity regarding Bolton this season. Currently, teams have been enjoying five-goal feasts on Bolton's approximation of a professional line-up. Later on in the season, other teams may struggle to achieve comparable results against a (presumably) strengthened team.

Good point. Luck of the draw I suppose. But it will be a shame if it affects the final positions of some clubs (especially Posh).

Well they took a battering yesterday so I doubt that throwing a team together in one day has made them much stronger than playing the kids.
Did you see my growler?
