Mays extension to be rejected
at 16:07 20 Mar 2019

Indeed. The way in which the whole process has been managed has consistently left the EU with the whip hand.

Given that it would need to be a unanimous 27-state decision to extend A50, it'll be open season for 'bribes':

bolton hearing adjourned until April 3rd (n/t)
at 13:05 20 Mar 2019

I think the match is now safe.

I read that if liquidation is ordered, they still have seven days to get it set aside. So if the club does go under, it'll be from 10th April onwards.

out of interest, why are Bolton charging just a fiver for tickets
at 14:06 19 Mar 2019

I imagine because they're banking on getting a higher attendance.

It's clear that a lot of people who wouldn't have gone otherwise are planning to go. I wouldn't have even given it a second thought if it was £20/£25, but I'm going purely because it's £5.

Bolton away, is it safe to buy tickets and book travel
at 13:34 19 Mar 2019

Precisely this.

There are winding up orders, and then there are multiple winding up orders.

This is the latter, and the fact that HMRC are having to go down this route again is going to make them rather concerned about Bolton's ability to pay going forward.

It's like your missus asking you to pick your pants up off the floor. You can get away with it once, but if she's having to ask regularly, you probably won't be getting away with it much longer.

For six games a season.

at 11:28 19 Mar 2019

Reading between the lines, it's only because he was released that McGoldrick has kicked himself up the a*se and come back in the way that he has.

Looking at the story, he all but admits to being in a comfortable position here at ITFC, so I dare say a new contract here may have resulted in more of the same. Suddenly he found himself without a club, in a position where people weren't tripping over themselves to sign him, and he had to put more effort in to make himself a marketable option.

Bolton in serious trouble
at 11:26 19 Mar 2019

From discussions I've seen on here/elsewhere, I'm not sure the EFL would allow them to go into administration.

As I understand it, they need to be in a position to pay off 100% of secured debt, and 25% of all other debt (not sure if I've used the right terms here?).

Apparently their debt to HMRC and banks etc., is to the tune of £20m - money which they don't have. If that's the case, then the EFL will not allow administration.

He's got a point, though.

Getting to a WC semi-final is still getting to a WC semi-final, but there seemed to be very few back-up plans should the set-piece strategy fail.

If you're innocent, why no-comment an interview?

Your daughter has (allegedly) been kidnapped, and whatever information you can give will only help flesh out whatever information the authorities already have.

Surely the non-suspicious course of action is to say "we completely understand why we're persons of interest in this whole thing, we'll happily cooperate fully with you in order to help as best we can", as opposed to throwing your toys out of the pram.

Also, what about the well-documented 48 questions that Kate refused to answer?

https://www.heart.co.uk/news/kate-mccann-48-questions/

There's some pretty innocuous stuff in there as well:

"What is your medical speciality?"
"Have you ever worked shifts?"
"Did you search inside the wardrobe?"

One of the bits that interests me (already referred to on this thread) is the fact that Kate McCann's immediate reaction was 'they've taken her'.

I don't know about anyone else's use of language, but I'd only use such a turn of phrase if I had a suspect in mind. If I left my house in the morning to find my car smashed up, I wouldn't be thinking of 'they' unless I had a good idea who had done it.

As I've said before, the McCann's definitely know more about the events of that evening than they let on. Likewise, their propensity to threaten legal action against anyone who even calls their version of events into question, sets alarm bells ringing.

Didn't they sue the local chief of police for daring to suggest they be designated 'arguido' (persons of interest) at the time?

I also reckon, had they not been white middle-class doctors, a lot more uncomfortable questions would have been asked as to why their children were left in an unlocked hotel room whilst they went out on the pi55.

So yes, they got off bloody lightly when you consider darker-skinned/poorer parents would have had a very uncomfortable grilling from the good folks at Social Services.

You know who knows precisely what went on that night? The parents.

They got off far too lightly, and seem far too quick to get litigious whenever anyone dares to question their story or actions.

Bolton Game could be in doubt
at 11:06 16 Mar 2019

As sad as it would be to see any club get liquidated, there's some spectacular arrogance going on there:

For all our flaws, we're a founder member of the Football League and would be by a million miles the biggest English club to go to the wall in recent memory.

It'd be a massive story and a damning indictment of the EFL. They'd want to slide us back in at a decent-ish level sharpish.

No way we'd be pissing around with pub teams and the like.


Read another comment stating they'd never end up in the national league because they'd take too many fans to games with them, and other clubs would be unable to cope...

You might not agree with his politics, but it's tough to argue that 'Spoons doesn't serve a purpose.

It's the kind of place where you know what you're going to get, which is reasonably well-kept beer at a reasonable price, and reasonable food to go with it.

If you find yourself somewhere unfamiliar and hungry/thirsty, you can do a lot worse than head for the nearest 'Spoons.
