Pity he wasn't "in it" for the good of the Club but for Himself.

I like to think that most fans on this forum, in the same position, would have left a considerable proportion of that £180 million to the club.

The £180 million Jeremy walked away with almost exactly matches the sums, and timescale, of the contribution made by a proper fan and benefactor at Bolton.

This is an extract from an obituary of Edwin "Eddie" Davies...
"He joined the Board of Directors of Bolton Wanderers in 1999. By 2003, he became the majority shareholder of Burnden Leisure, which owns the club. In October 2014, it was announced that Davies was ready to sell the team which he did in March 2016 writing off £171m loans and leaving £15m invested in the club".

I was never critical of JP for holding the club back because I think he took us to a different level when you consider how it was before his tenure. However I am critical of his now apparent motives and his 'I intend to sell to someone who can take the club forward' speech. Whereas in fact he sold out to the first buyer to show him the cash..........


Don't buy this either. No one could predict the Chinese government u-turn on foreign investment.

4 points from top of we win and 3 from second. With Norwich playing Sheffield united next week. We can't afford to balls this up

Then the week after Leeds playing Norwich, this is a big big game.

There were an awful lot of fans who were incredibly critical of Jeremy Peace. How he was holding the club back with his lack of financial muscle.

Well. This may certainly be a lesson of better the devil you know.

Lai is much worse that JP because he has no idea how to run a football club and isnt an Albion fan. Whatever you thought of JP , he knew football and our club.

I hope Lai sells up personally.

So assuming its paid to us in arrears there is another wodge of TV moola on top of that 39.5 million OB mentions that will show in 2018 accounts, is that correct ?

I think so, but that’s just cash flow. The amount due to us will be shown as an accrual in every annual accounts

Think most of us realised that JP had taken us as far as he could.  The problem is JP said he would sell to someone who could take us further. Instead we've ended up with effectively a clone of him in Lai. We needed someone who was willing to spend there own money to make the next step. I feel we will be lumbered with this guy for some time.

Can see it being reminiscent of Hull.
