Bolton Wanderers v Coventry City

Another mad week in the Bolton Wanderers soap opera. An opening day defeat at wycombe followed by the ticketing farce which has seen prices drop from £24 to £20, be suspended from sale for 2 days putting the match in doubt. Finally put on sale Friday morning we're looking at a crowd of over 7500 which sounds bad but under the circumstances no season tickets, late sale not bad. Putting the tin hat on it, madman Laurence bassini has obtained an injunction to prevent the sale of the club and hotel. How long that will take to sort? 2 possible attendees. Possible future Bolton chairman Sharon Brittan in answer to the fair question "azzz it bin dun?" has promised to speak to the fans at the Coventry game. Will she turn up? Also the madman has promised to attend and no doubt he will. Team news. More soap and Twitter rumours . The 5 contracted players from last season alnwick, matthews, lowe, Murphy and otzhumer are still allegedly not happy about still being owed money from last season as in really not happy. As it stands none are likely to play and parky has already confirmed a younger line up than last week. Expecting nothing but yet another defeat to nil under parky but at least we have a game to watch albeit with some unfamiliar faces.

It’s about time FV pulled there finger out and the administration team gave us a date when completion will happen.
This is supposed to be about a football club moving forward, the players and management have done there jobs, can you please do yours.
I’m sick of hearing how you are burning the midnight oil
Trying to complete this deal.
Then there’s nothing for a week.

The takeover is off until court on Wednesday. Ken v bassini. What happens if bassini wins? If the judge adjourns? Bassini loses and appeals? What is the longest any club has been in administration?

Think somebody did a good six months in admin but legally as long as its trading with a potential to sort it all out the old how long is a piece of string comes to mind.
If his claim is not flawed I'm going for a technical knockout LB should have filed before admin blag blah admin rules over all obligations contracts etc he's out

I am dreading Wednesday to be honest.
We don't know what paperwork LB gave the judge and more to the point what was written in that paperwork.
If it was written using a coloured crayon, then KA should win by default, but any other outcome would be disastrous for us all.
Will FV be willing to hang on a bit longer? Given that they have already foot the bill for the Coventry game. Or will they now walk away?
Does LB pay all creditors and non creditors the full money owed for both club and hotel?
My head hurts just thinking about it all now.

This LB contract would have been obvious for all to see during due diligence there would have been full disclosure of everything wouldn't there. Don't rule out the judge not being able to figure out who is right or wrong and unable to rule suffering a nervous breakdown retiring on ill health grounds when all replacements are on their holidays all of August ...........Confused? You won't be after this week's episode of Soap.

It's a minefield. My thoughts are that Bassini having failed the EFL test should not be allowed anywhere near the club. Unfortunately, the case may not rest on what the EFL rules say. The judge will weigh up the contents of the contract and make a ruling on what it contains.

What happens if he rules for Bassini is anyone's guess. I presume that the EFL would then need to give Bassini the chance to pass it's test once again.

However, if pasty is right regarding a technical knockout that could end the saga but if that was the case wouldn't the judge have stopped his application immediately?

Here's hoping the first judge had a quick read of LB's submission and thought what the hell I'll give him a chance I ain't got time for this some other judge can rule on this on appeal not me. Thus passing the buck legally as he had to be home early for that candle lit supper at the Buckets
