Ian Holloway says on Sky Sports news we could go bust in September unless something is done, he might just be saying it to try and shock the FA and EFL into action to provide financial support to clubs but if nothing is done clubs will go bust no doubt about it.

Well run club, best run club he’s ever been at. Apparently.

I’d imagine this is simply a sound bite from a man who loves the sound of his own voice.

Well run doesn't necessarily mean able to run on fresh air.

In recent days (in the crowdfunding argument) we have seen a call for board members to put some cash in

As as a board member (and we are led to believe large share holder) and if its as bad as he claims, as opposed to just him feeling the need to say something having been blissfully quiet for a while, perhaps its time for Saint Ollie to put his hand in his pocket


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

As I said, a man who likes the sound of his own face has had very little opportunity to speak the last few weeks...football is further up the agenda again so he reappears...with somewhat contradictory, frankly odd comments...

Would be better to issue a clear statement to verify the club's position.
No doubt they'll be another one from the club later to counter IH's comments.

There's nothing contradictory whatsoever. We have had a huge amount of expected income taken away. Well run means balancing the books, not having an infinite supply of spare cash to fund an unexpected global crisis. The clubs assets were less than £1million at the last accounts. Turnover of £3.5M with £3.4M expenditure.

So without any income, how long do you think that small amount of assets, when not all of it is available cash, will last?

Sarcasm is really lost on some folk here.

Let’s face it; sky needed a sound bite. Holloway loves to speak. Simples...

I doubt it somehow, they still think the sun shines out of Holloway, they'll not go against him. A watered down fence sitting statement maybe

He already put his hand in his pocket by the tune of 100.000 quid.
