[pan-ik]

noun
1.a sudden overwhelming fear, with or without cause, that produces hysterical or irrational behavior, and that often spreads quickly through a group of persons or animals.
2.an instance, outbreak, or period of such fear.
3.Finance. a sudden widespread fear concerning financial affairs leading to credit contraction and widespread sale of securities at depressed prices in an effort to acquire cash.

We've already sold our securities at very depressed prices... See Clough and Holding. We've mortgaged the assets. So is it time to panic?

We are on target, at this rate, for a 9-point season.
I guess we will score again, but not with the gang who couldn't shoot straight up front for us.

Not sure there is an answer other than a cash infusion, but after ten games, it is time to panic or just be resolved we will set a record in our relegation.

A cash infusion would be nice but we can't spend until January and it will be too late by then. Prospective owners will be waiting to see when we go down so they can pay less for the club as well.

No panic. I think most fans have resigned themselves to a swift relegation. It's the Bolton way at the moment.

20 years ago I'd have been chaining myself to the turnstile in protest and M&S would have run out of bedsheets. But now I don't care as much, BWFC suck the life out of you eventually.

There will be no investment whilst Anderson is at the helm so it's not even an option and there's no point in panicking as it achieves nothing.
If anything, it's time to assume we are going to be relegated and enjoy any fleeting moments of success we may have along the way. A goal would be nice at some stage, but I'd be surprised if it comes against Villa so I'm not holding my breath. For now, I'm content with a better than expected showing against Bristol and Parky finally showing he can set the team up differently - even though he had to be forced into it kicking and screaming.

Any players who have been acquired recently have shown that ,for the main part , they are as mediocre as the ones who were already here. If they were better ( such as le Fondre and Cullen) they seem to have regressed.
Whats the point of spending money on new players when they cost a fortune- and ,being realistic, who would want to come here at the minute with such a mood of depression around the place.
As for panic? its not worth it as its only  football and ,at the end of the day its  a fairly irrelevant feature of most peoples lives.
Yes- I think we'll get relegated and be humiliated along the way, but realistically I'm not that bothered. Certainly not enough to panic
Villa will win and we'll get a score of nil, as per usual

It appears that everything is being gambled on us finishing one place above the relegation spots.

KA clearly doesn't have the will or the money to invest in the club properly (otherwise he'd have done it by now) and seems content to sit back and wait for someone to come along and meet his terms.

The embargo hasn't helped matters but it has been a useful tool for KA to hide behind in my opinion because he's been able to say "I'd love to sign some decent players but my hands are tied" thus masking his lack of willingness to invest.

The fun will start in earnest if we do fail to secure Champo safety and drop back into League One.

Because we're still massively in debt and that will need servicing. Don't forget, the debts are in the club's name, not KA's.

If / when we do go down without having secured additional investment, I can see us being back in the High Court within a matter of weeks.

This ain't over by a long chalk.
