    We literally have 11 players. Jones, Naismith, Palmer, Otobar and the 2 centre backs didn’t play today.

    Our squad is made up of kids and players nobody wants.

    The commentary team made it sound like they hae come from behind to beat Liverpool at Anfield today. They beat 10 men, 6 or 7 of which were kids.

    Yes we should have held on as a L1 club, but we are only that in name.

    Things will get a lot lot worse before this nightmare is over.

    It is certainly only that in name. With your exlanation there which is spot on I wouldnt even put this down as an upset or giant killing. Most of those youngsters under normal circumstances would be loaned out to non league clubs and Chorleys management knew that. Our journeymen who were actually fit would also under normal circumstances would also more than likely have fallen out of the football league and be part time in non league so to me no upst whatsooever as we have a non league manager too.

    I watched that today and was shocked. Was Massey a regular last season, or is he at the end of a contract that originated when you were last in the 3rd division? I agree that he looked utter gash though, but then again so did everyone except the lad who was playing out right (Crankshaw – I think)

    Serious question – how far do you think you’ll drop before you start to rise again (ie, do you think you’ll stay up, and if not, do you think you’ll come straight back up)?

    He was in and out of the side.
    We will be relegated this season and struggle in League 2 unless there is some real substance in this elongated takeover.

    A rather Cook like set up, performance and impending away result.

    The same Paul Cook that had us finish 18th and 13th in the championship?

    Set up. One up top, best attacking midfield option playing as a central defender. Performance. No shots on target, insipid individual displays, no service for the lonely striker. Result. An away defeat. Now have we or have we not seen very much the same in the two seasons prior to this?
    Hope we can save the best until January.

    New site is not a patch on the old one and this is reflected in the numbers of fans/supporters using it.
    Been a bad mistake all-round.
    Its shit.

    I wonder what would happen if it was the “other” team what was in our predicament?

    We all know what would happen. They would stand up and be associated with them. Like Whelan did when he saved them and gave them a place to play at on cheap rent after they had squandered their Tesco money on paying off debt that bought their success in their glory years.
    Papers,radio and TV would have been full of the tear inducing bilge too.

    Yeung probably only ever owned us on paper. A name just put up there by Choi.
    Choi just finding a way out and a way out with some of the money he has invested and this will be known by various authorities who are getting to the bottom of his scam.

    Don’t wish to put the mockers on things but have you read the latest statement from the administrators, they say no offer has been made but are in talks with a bidder.

    The parasites will drag this out for as long as they can on £500 per hour.
    Almost on Pilkington, Fox, McLeod and Roberts money on that. They’ll have done more hours though.

    Shame we have no mega rich fans or supporters prepared to take us over. Even if it meant starting with a bare bones crap squad and without 427 hangers on in tracksuits with laptops and bottles of fluids. A back to basics, upset the applecart Latics like we always loved. Less posers with socks halfway down their legs and dozens of squad players never getting a game.

    If anyone was still in any doubt how bad the situation now is, paragraph 1 of the Administrators’ statement spells it out.
    If a deal isn’t signed by 31st August they are shutting us down.
    Short of winning the Euro lottery on Friday not sure what we can do about it.
    We really are about fecked. Pollard may be our last hope

    Shutting us down? Yet only a couple of days ago these lot were talking about starting the season in administration and indeed four friendlies have been organised. So they said.

    He must be struggling keeping the Eggs afloat so can’t really see him being serious about a football club too and a stadium plus other facilities to maintain.
    Worst thing wrong with it would be the way the press would report it with all their biased and uninformed rhetoric.

    Wasnt it under similar circumstances he left Portsmouth due to a change of ownership?

    I think he left because we offered him more money.
