    I'd assume like any investor a loss by his standards will be however much money he's put into the club on top of the £1 to pay off debt etc. But I agree he's a cunt who should never have passed the fit and proper persons test: The reality is even if Bury FC folds, a Bury Football club will rise out the ashes like Wimbledon AFC, Aldershot, Maidstone United. They'll just have to get use to lower league football.

    How can he really sell it at a loss when he paid, iirc, a pound for it? He is another one of lifes cunts who feel that, because they have thrown shitloads of their own money at something, they have added that amount of money to its value and, consequently, they are entitled to get some other mug to repay that ill advised expenditure. This will not be the last shitbag to take a loved and famous club to the cliff edge.

    Absolute horrible situation (both there and Bolton). It's one thing to have a shite owner but to have one willing to let your club go to bang point is absolutely horrendous. Suprised a League One or Conference team haven't publicly attempted to do a MK Dons/Wimbledon FC with it. Although I'm sure they might have tried in private.

    That'll be SEVEN hours and 18 minutes, then. Really sad situation, frankly. In a related matter I saw a video clip of the chairman who took Carlisle to the brink of extinction - Michael Knighton - bigging up a book about his attempt to take over Manchester United, something he did before taking over moribund Carlisle.

    49. Ginger Baker

    Few years old now so likely on a few of the major streaming services. It starts with Baker attacking the documentary maker with a stick. Last I heard Ginger lived fairly close to me; not seen him, mind. A few other local celebs - Vic Reeves, Sean (Barry from Eastenders) Williamson - are regularly sighted. It's not the kind of locale in which people feel the need to be reclusive.

    You've intrigued me. I'll have to check it out now if it's readily available.

    Bury FC have 8 hours 45 minutes to find a buyer (or more importantly convince Steve Dale to sell at a loss) or they'll be expelled from the EFL.

    He was the friendly, social face of their operation. Charles was/is the bigger ideologue though. Well, interestingly their influence in politics has declined anyway. They used Obama as a boogeyman and Trump doesn't care about their free market ideology.

    New Here And Just Saying Hello

    We all figured it out on our own, snowflake. They’ll manage. In fact, if they can’t its a good first step in membership weeding. However I think maybe WE should have a questionnaire that THEY can fill out so we have ammun......er, information about who we allowed in. btw, newbies, I’m SirC, the Official DL Welcomer. Chosen cuz I’m so warm and cuddly. SC

    Should point out that the wrong Koch brother's marked as dead in the A-Z list - it's David that's carked it, not Charles.
