  1. Doubt he'll pay the rent. As I understand it,only the debenture comes with a right to put the club in admin without going through the same process as other unpaid creditors ( I.e. the winding up petition route). Bury and Macclesfield have demonstrated how easily that process can be dragged out by turning up to court every few weeks to make a vague promise about paying up smetime soon.
  2. Billy 's comments carry more weight by virtue of the fact that he jumped ( after being widely praised for his work), rather than being pushed. So they can't use the "sacked employee with an axe to grind" argument to discredit him. Well done for speaking out!
  3. It seems that their actions are based on having a potential buyer with proof of funds, who will only buy if they retain league status. They also have a 'promise' from Dale that he will sell to them . Whilst I'm sure self interest was a major factor for League 2 clubs, it probably wasn't for League 1 and Championship clubs. Even if a club chairman wanted to keep Bury in the league it would have been a brave move to actually vote for it, given that the likelihood of a sale ever completing remained highly questionable. As you say, it might be better for them to focus now on sta
  4. It seems they are not ready to give up start a phoenix club yet. The Bury rescue board are apparently considering legal action against the EFL whilst also asking for direct entry in to the National League.
  5. Now confirmed tat they are not being readmitted and only 1 down from L2 this year.
  6. That is probably the reason why enough Championship/League 1 clubs will vote against reinstatement. They wouldn't want a situation whereby they let them back in, only for them to be unable to take their place in L2. There are too many risk factors in their re-launch plan for it to have even a 50% change of succeeding.
  7. It might be quite close. The group trying to get them reinstated reckon 15 clubs cast their vote yesterday and all 15 voted to re-instate them in League 2. Two League 2 clubs (Colchester and Walsall) were among the clubs named as having voted to reinstate them.
  8. Blatant nepotism in recruitment at ATS Accountancy.
  9. Yes, a deal will get done somehow. The EFL won't want blood on their hands and will do everything they can to facilitate it. Ironically that might include not enforcing their own rules on the new owner again. They'll obviously get a further points deduction and will be relegated but I don't think they should be in League 1. I'd have applied the points deduction to last season.
  10. Yep. Saw him last night in the Treasury Casino. He gave me $100,000 and told me to get myself a hospitality box at the Suncorp.
  11. Hopefully you will see this Billy. I emailed supporter.services@oldhamathletic.co.uk with details of my purchase last night and ............................. no response.
  12. Thanks Billy, I have emailed you at the support services address email address so that I could attach my invoice and copies of correspondence with Ashleigh re the purchase. No need to worry about this tonight - it can wait until tomorrow.
  13. Whilst I very much appreciate the job you do in going above and beyond what the club could reasonably expect of you, in keeping people informed of what's going on across various social media platforms, I have to point out that some of the above just isn't true. I still haven't been contacted by anyone regarding my 100 Club memberships which I renewed in June. I've also been a member since inception and wasn't invited to the the office meeting mentioned above. The club have my contact details and don't have any trouble contacting me when it comes to sending invoices.
  14. I've got 2 100 club tickets and still haven't received an email or any sort of communication at all.
  15. I think what makes our situation different to Coventry's is that the club has a long term secure lease on the ground on terms it agreed to. I don't think Coventry had a lease agreement on the Ricoh when they left.
  16. He seems unable to say anything without coming across as confrontational.
  17. Interesting listen that. Revealed some things I wasn't aware of before like the time AL only paid the starting 11.
  18. JH would be John Harbin I think. Been back around the club for a while.
  19. https://www.theoldhamtimes.co.uk/sport/17641148.lee-clark-keen-on-oldham-athletic-job-with-interest-high/ " there is suggestion from those close to Boundary Park that Abdallah Lemsagam is considering a ‘continental style’ structure for what would be his fifth appointment. "
  20. A potential candidate from left field ... Joleon Lescott was a guest in the boardroom at the last home game. There could be absolutely nothing in it of course.
  21. As others have pointed out, Rangers can. The lack of compensation due would also give them an advantage, as they could offer higher wages due to the money saved. At least that's what I'd expect his agent to be telling them, similar to what happened with Ramsay's move to Juventus.
  22. Only a year left on his contract. Could have him free in 12 months so l don't think it's too bad in that context.
  23. I'm assuming that, unless it's Mo, any appointment will be made after the bulk of the recruitment has already taken place.
  24. Thanks for that. I posted a couple of weeks ago that I'd heard the delay in announcing prices was due to a poor relationship with the OEC and that he was considering offering the hospitality element away from the North Stand. Sounds like he's decided to just try to take the money anyway without any arrangements in place!
