Surely a massive failure of due diligence here. The club are heading for trouble with Cleeve in charge.

Re: Small clubs in the north west

If Bury go under it won't be for the lack of effort. They've managed to get a huge amount of national TV coverage, including live BBC broadcasts today and Government ministers getting involved in a way that few other clubs plunged into the mire have managed. There's huge pressure to pull it back fr...

Re: International duty

Perhaps we could ask for the games to be postponed, due to International call ups? Need to find at least 1 more international as you need a minimum of 3 players on international duty to get games called off I seem to remember a Quakers match deferred because Jason De Vos was playing for Canada.

Re: Small clubs in the north west

As for Bury, did they not overspend last season in their efforts to get promotion. .... I think Andy Holt at Accrington possible called out the issues at Bury at point they sold their stadium. I may be conflating the issue as I am trying to recall the thread from quite a few months ago. I think if ...

Re: old programmes

That could be taken one of two ways!

The BBC could easily say its not worth doing and cut its already paltry coverage of step 2!

In the grand scheme of things, does the BBC having this wrong really matter
