Re: Bury: Bringing Football Back (BBC1 11.50PM)

There was some pretty acrimonious feelings from those wishing Bury FC to carry on, as in at Gigg Lane, pay off the owner, towards those starting the AFC Bury club. It got quite unpleasant, from what I can make out. Documentary quite interesting.

Re: ALK Capital or Farnell/Elkashashy takeover

So people have already made their minds up about farnell...if he is successful..is he not to be given a chance ? I've spoken to enough people linked with Bury, and have read enough of the goings on at Charlton to be very, very concerned about Burnley if he gets his hooks in, let's put it that way.

That doesn't actually stop the ability to sell it though does it? I thought it just gives a period where the community is the preferred bidder.
