If it is considered and accepted then the integrity of L1 and the EFL will and should be questioned
The guy looks dodgy. Hope the EFL can see that.

Bury disappointed that the EFL have not rescinded and allowed a new allegedly dodgy owner to take over

I suppose one small crumb of comfort is at least that we can't be drawn away to them again this year in the FA Cup.

Is this a statement from the club or a personal one from Dale? I'm very sorry for all involved with Bury (Except Dale) but this was going on from the moment last season ended, Six games postponed, Dumped out of the League Cup when the other team got a bye and a Chairman who blamed everyone else except himself. The EFL could only kick the can down the road for a certain time and it had to come to an conclusion, The preferred bidder pulled out after finding debt after debt The EFL had no choice, You can't open the process again because someone else came in too late, The new bidders knew the time frame as we all did, It was like closing the door after the horse had bolted. The EFL need to look at themselves but this sorry saga had to end

I just don't get your logic spanky. It's not fair to expect them to plough their money into their local club but it's fine that they plough it into a nearly local club that becomes their plaything. ??

He says..........as a business owner myself here in Paradise, the notion that someone would plough several million into a football club just to get them out of the red, rather than plough several million into a football club that's already in the black, to get them somewhere better, has zero logic. The Class of 92 would have had to spend millions at Bury to even have a chance of doing what they've done at Salford, and I would suggest that the challenge of getting Salford to the league ticked many boxes too (it wasn't just about ploughing money in and sitting back).

The Man from Mont Le Grand he say. . . .
At the same time as getting them out of the red, it would have given them a modernised 12000 all seater stadium at a knockdown price. They have already had to spend out on completely revamping the existing Salford ground, and they will need to spend out on a new larger stadium on a bigger site if they go on to match their aspirations. All in all it might not be completely mad when viewed on a purely financial basis. But of course timing is everything and they were already well down the path at Salford, so it's all pretty irrelevant speculation and unfair criticism of the Class of 92 anyway !

The criticism of the Nevilles isn't just that people are suggesting the rise of Salford is directly linked to the demise of Bury or that the class of 92 should have pumped their money into Bury instead of Salford, although there maybe some truth to both and the money needed to sort out Bury would have been small change for their benefactor. Instead it's also to do the fact that the Nevilles etc and their media lackeys show no understanding or appreciation of the way that financial doping in football, of which their club is one of the worst examples, is a huge factor in creating the huge financial mess that is English football at the moment.
