Remember them? 71 EFL chairmen will vote next week on whether they should be reinstated next season. I just wondered, what’s your gut feeling about this? Will the football family show sympathy or go for the throat?

Even if they’re reinstated, they still haven’t been purchased/rescued - can you imagine if they were reinstated and STILL went bust?! The EFL would look ridiculous then.

It will be fascinating. I wonder how Town will vote?

Other teams have been kicked out of the league for the same problems so I see no reason to let them back in let them win promotion to get back .

Unless if they get voted in it means the Scunts go down.

No question. Let em go. Won't do any good reinstating them, and possibly do more harm in the long run. If the likes of Rotherham, Leicester and Pompey had been disciplined properly (like Luton were) then a lot of the present troubles could have been nipped in the bud. And when you think what we've been through complying with the rules, re-instatement would be unfair.

As for the Bury fans, well they'll have a chance to re-found a club which they'll have control of and be able to avoid this happening again. If they stick by it in anything like present numbers they should soon progress through the pyramid. Maybe FC United can return the favour and let them share their ground. Or there's Oldham who could do with a few quid. Plenty of options around Manchester.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I can see the championship and L1 all voting for them to stay in as it does not effect them directly and if it happens to them in the future they can use this as a way out.
L2 clubs will vote them out as it would mean two go down this season.

Let them go

Other clubs who should have been let go and this situation would not have happened include

Leeds
Hull
Rotherham
Portsmouth
West Ham for cheating
Chelsea for hoovering up players and letting them out on loan

As it has already been flagged up over the last few weeks, I suspect that the EFL will vote to re-admit Bury into Div 2.  A short-sighted and wrong decision in my opinion. They are victims of their own downfall.

I think that clubs may well vote to keep them in the league for selfish reasons.  It could be their own club in a similar position in the future..

Older fans will remember the annual vote to retain the bottom 4 clubs in the old Div 4 who had to apply for re-election.It was rare for a club to be voted into NL.  (Including Grimsby who survived a vote). Turkeys don't vote for xmas.

It’s a real tricky one this. In an ideal world, it would be the crooks who have destroyed the club who would be punished, not the fans.

Sadly, it’s the the opposite that seems to be true.

Has there ever been a case of a club taking a season off before? A complete farce, AFC Bury should be kicking off in Step 4 next season.

there seems to be a lot of disparity when it comes to issues regarding financial affairs and regulations.

how can "bigger clubs" get points taken off (Leicester etc) after falling into financial distress, yet teams like (the proper) Wimbledon, Aldershot, darlington get stripped of their league status

football is losing faith in the people that care about it.
