In truth I'd bet that's about how much is owed to unpaid staff etc to bring them up to date and maybe a couple of other bits and bobs for outside suppliers but take the club forward and build a squad for that? Somebody's been smoking the peace pipe if they really believe that's possible.

Getting sick and tired of posts like this.

We were probably close to going bust, yet people are now moaning that we've only got £1m to play with.

Just be thankful you've got a fucking club to support from your fucking armchair.

 Spot on Nat  :clap:

Statement On Behalf Of Football Ventures (Whites) Limited

We are privileged to announce that negotiations to transfer the ownership of Bolton Wanderers Football Club and Whites Hotel are over and we have formally completed. 

Throughout this lengthy and complicated process, we have remained focussed on completion of the deal and nothing else.

At times it has been difficult to keep our counsel but we took a decision to remain on the sidelines even when further damage was being inflicted by delays outside of our control.

Our thoughts were always with the club staff and supporters and we worked tirelessly behind the scenes to find an agreement and prevent even more stress and uncertainty for those who have suffered far too much over the past months.

Now we are excited to begin restoring this magnificent football club to its rightful position, securing its future for the fans, the loyal club staff, and the players. 

We are thankful to the EFL for their willingness to support our efforts along with the PFA. We would also like to thank the University of Bolton and Bolton Council for their backing and Bolton Wanderers Supporters Trust for its understanding. 

We understand Phil Parkinson and Steve Parkin’s decision to leave the Club. They have behaved impeccably and loyally and we wish them both nothing but the best for whatever the future may hold.
It is now imperative that we commence the process of appointing a manager and strengthening the team with the right players to take the club forward.  

The true spirit of this football club rests with the fans, it is nothing without them. The support shown to the players during this season’s opening fixtures has been overwhelming. 

It would be remiss of us not to say how saddened we are at the devastating news from our neighbours at Bury FC. Our hearts go out to the fans and the community.

Now the deal is complete, please be assured we intend to do all within our power to bring back a true sense of pride to Bolton Wanderers Football Club, which is the least the staff, fans, future generations of supporters and the community deserve.

Football Ventures (Whites) Limited

No offence to TROY and the others who hate Ken and always will but I think if I had 7 mil plus in something I'd want it back too. What's not been said by the administrator is whether or not FV tried to duck paying Ken or how much of that 'secured creditor' money they were initially offering. It may well be that Ken simply called their bluff here and held out for as much as he could get.

Is that a 'nice' thing to do? Probably not but it wasn't about nice, it was business and since FV have clearly come up with something else that Ken could settle for he was probably right to do it from his own standpoint.

Actually, I don't care either way anymore. I'm just celebrating the fact we still have a football club to support and that we've ended (hopefully) a very dark chapter in BWFC history.

What a shame my Uncle David is unable to do the same today. My heart really does go out to all the Bury fans.

I agree he's made a lot of mistakes but our current position was not ALL down to him by any means. The rot started long before, in the Premier League. Personally I'm glad Ken came in when he did if only because we could well have disappeared then and while I agree his departure is a good thing for all concerned I for one will always be grateful that he bought us some time if nothing else.

Whatever happens next I can only hope and pray we never, EVER find ourselves in this position again. It was all too reminiscent of the 1980's and no matter how happy I am today I'm still deeply saddened by the fact Bury couldn't find an FV of their own.

1 - I don't know what he finally settled for do you?

2 - Who the fuck are you - St Troy of the internet or something? Easy to say you'd walk away from £7.5m you could have had for free, no strings attached. Another thing doing it when it's in front of you to touch.

At least I'm being honest about it - I'm not sure you are though.

As for living your life morally - do you believe in abortion, are you a vegan, do you wear ethical clothing only, have you a negative carbon footprint, do you watch where you step so you don't stand and kill any little insects?

Morales are compromised every day by everyone in order to live in the world we have. You're no difference to anyone else, so who are you to judge where to draw the line?

No idea how you pick up from here but you will, it will be a great season whatever happens next. May your new owners turn out to be good ones and hope to see you at the Cottage really soon.

Oh god, you think putting others livelihoods at risk to make a buck is good business. I think it’s morally repugnant.

It’s as simple as that, there’s nothing left to say. So leave it and let’s enjoy some positive news for a change.

As they say - nothing personal, it's just business.

Morally repugnant yes but legally acceptable and that's why all this has happened - because business is sanctioned on legality not morality.

And as for leaving it I thought I had - until you decided to link me to being a slimeball!

Dear God people are still in denial.

What is hard to understand?

Anderson BORROWED £7.5m as a bridging loan.

He signed a CONTRACT to repay the money to the lender.

That made it HIS money.


Yes he borrowed it from Eddie but he could equally have borrowed it from the bank, Quick Quid, BluMarble, etc, etc, etc.

EDT came after him for the money - just like the bank would or QQ, etc.

Why would they do that if it wasn't Anderson's money they were after?

Why didn't Eddie just put it in the club directly along with the other £200m he wrote off, if he wasn't LOANING it CONTRACTUALLY to Anderson and have him put up his PERSONAL ASSETS as SECURITY.

It certainly WAS Anderson's money that he stood to lose.


How difficult is that to comprehend???

Here you go again!

Morally you/Fin might class it as Eddies money, legally it was now Anderson's.

In law it was Anderson who put HIS money into the club.

If it wasn't his money then what the fuck have they been fighting over then and damn nearly killed off the club???

If it was Eddie's money he put into the club then it would have simply been paid back to EDT when FV took over and all this would have been sorted out weeks/months ago!
