Looks like the court is letting them complete their fixtures before winding them up. you would think if they somehow survive the drop and then go under the third bottom team will be given a life line.

John Smith
Notts Royal Yes the football has been rubbish, but we’ve got to do something more to back our team

Quite right. If only there was a fan-focused incentive to improve the atmosphere in the stadium that everyone could get behind.

Mr Optimist Their gates will drop by at least 5,000 overnight too when the Japanese holiday makers in London look elsewhere for their Premier League fixture to attend.

Not sure what's wrong with that? It's London, obviously tourists will go to games.


You misread my quote - my comment wasn’t regarding our home support (for which I support the C1871 initiative). It was regarding our substandard away following.

Until we start taking decent numbers, why would fans of other clubs think anything other than “little old Reading”?

Maybe if Club1871 bothered to travel away then it might increase

Old Man Andrews The EFL are not going to let a club in the 2nd tier of English football fold during a season, far too embarrassing for them and it would look awful.


Agree but how many times has this happened with them in the past 3 or 4 years?

I'm not an accountant but how come Bolton year after year of not playing staff wages etc are they avoiding points deductions?

Maybe because they are founder members they are getting preferential treatment.

Franchise FC
Hound It’s certainly been a pitiful season for them. At least Hudders were always likely to be rubbish but Fulham has proper delusions of grandeur

Got everything wrong. Bet Leon is delighted at least

And at least £100m out of pocket on transfers.

There's going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth when the inevitable fire sale occurs


For me they are contenders for the worst team in history. Yes Derby only got 11 points. but they didn't spend 105 million. Add to that sacking two high profile managers compensation wages agents. You are looking at 120 million. Lucky they are owned by one of the richest men in the world or hey would be another Bolton.

Oh don't get me wrong, Bolton probably deserve to be expelled from the Football League but I can't see it happening until this Summer. They can't get away with it.

QPR 2 down after 10 at Norwich, they’ll still need one more win, and the way they’re playing that may not be so easy

On another note, Norwich are a class above, going to really have to be at the top of our game to have any chance on Wednesday

Very impressed with Norwich can see why they are top. As for QPR ? How did they beat Leeds? They are terrible.

Narch are, apparently, going to appeal the decision. I can only presume they haven't watched the replay :shock:

Yep that’s very poor for Millwall. Only 7 shots, 2 on target in the game as well.
