This is horrible news. The first of many, I suspect. I can’t see how football survives this without losing at least some professional clubs. Quite possibly some big clubs.

 

I genuinely hope that Derby sort themselves out... and that we don’t end up in the same state

Sad news, we shouldn't gloat


Absolutely. EVERY club is lucky to be still alive during this shambles, not least us. It’s amazing none have gone under yet although I could be wrong about that.

It's going to be carnage across the EFL before this season is out.

Maybe some good can come out of this like, fewer overseas owners, lower salaries for players, cheaper ticket prices, and the fans getting the game back

Yeah at end of the day we all love football and we can't exist without each other.  Football clubs give their communities so much.

Doubt it sadly. Remember back in march... papers reporting the end of big time business... then chelsea blew £80m on someone nobody had ever heard of

The Derby situation is very similar to ours. Really went for it and pushed FFP to the limits. 
 

Both gambles failed. Now both clubs don’t own the stadium and both are struggling to pay players on time.

 

Derby’s saving grace is they’ve apparently got this takeover on the horizon. Perhaps DC might have to start thinking about new ways to get cash into the club ASAP?

Won’t be the last. Can’t imagine we are far behind to be honest.

Derby were banking on this takeover hugely. I hope for their sake it goes through.

Fizz em! Honestly think any of them cared when we got our points deductions or previous relegations?

I'd rather teams didn't go to the wall, but then I'm not going to be too fussed if they do. Let's be honest, there were loads of fans wishing us to go kaput when our points deductions was announced last season. 

 

Sympathy is in short supply in the football "family".

Gloating?  Absolutely not.

 

Knowing they are paying Rooney a kings ransome and he won't even play himself now - that's a different matter.

im sure a betting firm has paid for rooneys wages

Weren’t the people taking over Derby minted? Do they fancy buying us instead?

Sounds bit dodgy think same sheik had previously sniffed around notts forest and Newcastle (not the big one than fell through in 2020)

I don’t think fans should ever suffer for financial issues out of their control. 
 

I hope Derby get out of it. I have no affiliation to Bury but it was horrible seeing them go through what they did and subsequently sad that they’re no more.
