Lots of people expecting an extension, apparently 4 offers on the table as of today now, I imagine they will drag it out. Sky SN said they will likely give one, possibly starting from Tuesday.

They can't keep doing that though can they? The fixture congestion is immense now and would be unmanageable if they left it any longer. There has to be a quick resolution one way or the other, and for Bury's sake I hope they allow them to start playing, whether with a buyer or not. Problem is who's going to play for them on zero wages?

Well if there are offers on the table & Dale agrees to one, I imagine they will give them extra time, & then if it goes through, they'll have to lift the transfer embargo, otherwise Bury won't be able to start playing games. Either way, I reckon they're 100% going down as they won't be able to sign anything decent, they'll have a thrown together team of loans, youth & the little amount of seniors they have left. Be a similar situation to Bolton.

 

I don't think there's any way back for either team even if the matters off the pitch are sorted, they're almost certainly both going to be relegated, even at this early stage.

Phil Neville is quoted as saying that the demise of Bury is disgraceful. Maybe it wouldn’t have been if he and his mates would have put their money into a proper club such as Bury instead of entertaining themselves by creating that Frankenstein tin pot Salford gimmick   Even FC United had a moral behind it

What happens next? Do they get huge points deduction this season for not fulfilling fixtures and/or something next season in league 2 or just start next season as though nothing has happened?

They should be expelled in my opinion regardless now.  The deadline was 23:59 and they have failed to satisfy the conditions required.

I have no sympathy for them or there fans for reasons I have already explained.  They have missed 6 matches, not paid staff for months and have been cheating financially for a few seasons and nothing from fans.  Two days before oblivion somebody handcuffs themselves to the ground...

Its Burys problem to find a level that will now accept them and then work back from there.

It will also serve as a stark reminder to fans of all clubs to take an interest in financial affairs of there clubs, no matter how many pathetic whiners give it the "we should only be interested in the football"... those days are gone, Norm has shown that even in a club clinging onto league survival you can set up a few very lucrative revenue streams for yourself.

Despite Dale’s claims to have sold the club, I feel there are more twists and turns ahead.

The new “owners” have still not completed the deal and appealed to the EFL for more time so as they can “continue to explore the prospects for a purchase”

Hardly sounds like a deal has been done to me.

Would have to play the postponed games during the season, I assume there are enough mid week slots available otherwise they would have to play 2 games in some mid-weeks. Where they get players from? Bolton in same situation. Further sanctions always an option maybe down to other chairman to push or not.  For the future I think, the present is not settled yet.

I'm guessing that means if the deal isn't done by the deadline Bury are expelled. 

There was only so long the League were prepared to wait and it looks like they've reached the end of the process.

I think so, this is the last deadline.

The EFL openly said that that when Steve Dale bought the club in December last year that he had not passed the "fit and proper" test, so in reality it is mainly their fault that this has dragged on for so long. When Vale fans wrote to them about our previous owner they put their heads in the sand and came out with the excuse that the EFL was only there to organise the football league and cup games. 

So what is their role?

I do hope that if Bury were kicked out of the league at this late stage then the EFL has to carry the can and I hope that the other twenty three clubs in division one sue the EFL for the amount of money possibly lost in revenue by playing one game less when all league club projections will be for twenty threebgames played and not twenty two.

Has Steve Day been arrested yet?

 

No one should be surprised that Dale failed the fit and proper test when 43 of the 51 companies he has been associated with have been liquidated.

You couldn't make it up.

It's not the leagues responsibility who people buy and sell clubs to.  They can withdraw there golden share should they see fit but imagine Bury going great guns last season then because Dale bought the club they expelled them?  They would be getting the blame for sending them to the wall.  Now because they didnt do that it's the EFLs fault Bury are in a mess....  so what should the  EFL have done exactly?

I keep saying it but the people to blame are the supporters who said and did nothing whilst spending money they didnt have.

Exactly , "new owners" supposed to have been talking with everyone and EFL  for 10 WEEKS , and they need more time. Why would Dale appeal for fans donations, if a deal was imminent ? ????
