BOLTON. Now I didn’t see this coming. But there IS a genuine rival bidder. And they think they can nick in ahead of The Basran Boys. More follows when details available. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

"Nick it"" - from people who have apparently already walked away?

Bidder is great news "in principle" but it depends on who it is and whether or not they've seen the accounts.

I'm going off at a tangent slightly but today Wolves published their accounts for last season when they got promoted to the Premier (and the Sky money) which showed a loss of £57 million (or in simple terns £1 million per week!).

The year before that they lost £23 million (or half a million per week).

The reason I post this comes back to my point as to what could the reason be for anyone wanting to buy us?

If it is to get to the Premier, then some serious money needs to be spent doing it - and even then it isn't guaranteed to happen.

I just can't get my head around why anyone wants to buy us as a football club - unless they have millions to piss away?

Either that or as some sort of property type developer?

Looking at the losses, you could say that about any football club. Why do people want to invest in Wigan? Bury or Oldham? They have traditionally less crowds than Bolton.

The game itself is run on massive debt. Not one of those clubs coming down from the premiership could survive after 3 years if they don't go straight back up.

Looking at the spatial framework, there's going to be more houses in Bolton, Bury and Wigan so where are they going to watch football?

Old Trafford or City of Manchester stadium, perhaps? But you're going further and further back to the point where you're better staying at home watching it o. TV.  It's £40 quid to get into Old Trafford I believe, so it's more expensive than coming to Bolton. The TV subscriptions are going up all the time. This could make Bolton very attractive.

Population wise Greater Manchester has 2.756 million people living in it and really only two big teams within it. Compare that with West Midlands 4 big teams, and inner London 4 big teams and the aim of QPR being number 5.

On those figures alone there is potential in Greater Manchester for at least one more big team, if someone can get it right.

So why does someone want to invest in BWFC?, because there's massive potential if you run the club right.

If that was the case where have all these potential investors been for the last seven or eight years been since Eddie was trying sell the club, long before he pulled the plug on it?

How come only Holdsworth and Disley were the only buyers for the club for a pound?

Why isn't Anderson beating off all these potential investors out there off with a stick.

Why didn't all these alleged buyers who could deal with Anderson and walked away simply not pay him what he wanted if there's so much to be made out of running the club right?

Unless they have loads of money to risk pissing it away if they don't succeed then I can't see the benefit to buy a club and run it at a loss on the off chance they get lucky and promoted to the Premier some how.

Clearly there was/is silly money behind Wolves and that is the level that clubs need to be if they want to get promoted from the Championship.

Maybe this Kenyon interest is our golden ticket but it seems more likely that it's just a ploy to get Ashley and Newcastle to play ball with them.

Hope I'm wrong though.

Surely the reason why the investors aren't banging the down was, firstly the £176 million debt,  and the £30 million debt with huge cashflow problems ( greater than the debt problems really)

The increase in housing is only just happening, but the potential is there if someone gets it right, otherwise, why invest in Wigan and why bother with Bury? You've not answered about those clubs.

No, I didn't say it was easy, but I will take an optimistic view right now as it's important for all supporters to be positive about the football club right now. There's plenty of people who can knock it, who support other teams.

The potential can only be brought out with a good business plan and help from the council. The town is dieing as well. The council really can't afford to lose the football club.

It’s not possible to make money in the Chamoionship and challenge. Any owner is only interested in breaking into the Premier League, which is increasingly competitive - hence why nobody wants to buy us.

Bury and Wigan had a fraction of our debt (and more killingly, our running costs for the last three years thanks to the stupid wages and contract lengths of players left - thanks to Gartside) - and thus were vastly more desirable and saleable in the last three years.

I can't imagine any normal sort of businessman seeing guaranteed short term profit for their investment BUT someone who has money to burn of the likes that Kenyon rubs shoulders with might see us as a punt worth taking.

Fingers crossed anyway.

Had a fraction of our debt, but less punters coming in and Bury didn't have premiership millions, andand w given £10,000 by Gartside to keep it going when it was struggling. Can't see Bury helping us out. 

We were given the 'llie' hat ED would pay it all off and that didn't happen. ED tried to sell the club with £176 million worth of debt instead of wiping the debt then selling it.

As I say I think there is a certain amount of potential but it'll take someone with a few brains.

You've always been optimistic Wessy including writing how the club was improving under Anderson, but we can't change the financial mess he get us into now and if it turns out to be the case that Anderson was the barrier to selling the club, then perhaps potential buyers reading that the fans want rid of him, perhaps that could be a good thing.
As for HN's diatribe about us being a small club that nobody wants to buy I'd just take that with a pinch of salt because he knows as well as anyone that money changes everything in this game and if the club has good players and is getting results, our catchment area suddenly gets substantially bigger as shown by the number of Manure fans in London and PSG who were only formed in 1970.

I assume they saw potential in the area, with extra housing and Wolves having been a big club in the past.

I'd rather talk about the positives right now, rather than what's wrong. Leave that for when the club has been taken over.
