"Bolton Wanderers: Ken Anderson says he has 'no choice' other than to put club into administration"
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48199290

I think that'll probably mean starting next season in League One with a 12-point penalty.

What a mess, gotta feel for those Trotters fans!

Ally Robertson no doubt
For me, John Kaye followed closely by Ally.

I think if we don't go up, it would be the ideal time to do the rebuild (the club and the fans would have to accept they may not challenge for promotion next year).
I think you're probably right from a football perspective Mister AT, unfortunately it's pretty clear that's really not what the owner has in mind!

There is no logic to this decision if there is it is purely to get a result across the next 10/12 games the one thing it isn't is a long term project.
...
This is what it is all about for me!
There has been growing discontent with supporters & probably the board (& quite likely the players as well). The board are gambling on regaining some momentum to continue through to the play offs and a chance of promotion. They've rolled the dice.
I am gutted that Darren and his vision for the club has now gone - sincere thanks Big Fella!

I would suggest we now know why Jenkins went to China in the week
Yep & suspect there is also someone already lined up.
Super sad to see Darren go, but while there is a chance to still go up via play offs the board have decided to act.

Rodgers to LCFC? It’ll be interesting to see how this affects Burke’s situation.

I'd just be so embarrassed if it was our manager whining about this, Hughton does himself no justice at all.

Quite a surprise, not great to watch them but you’ve gotta applaud the efforts last couple of years with promotion & avoiding relegation.

A big loss for sure & most frustrated that it happens 24 hours before a top of the table clash!

Talking about skin and bone,does anyone remember the great Pat Cowdell?
I used to train at the same club on occasionally and he was skin and bone but was the strongest man I've ever known,he was wiry,but he could punch a hole in a brick wall.
Brilliant boxer.
yes Pat was a really smashing boxer (managed by Tommy & Paddy Lynch), he was as tough as anything but unfortunately had a little bit of a glass jaw.
