    The English Football League buried Bury today. Bolton may not be far behind.

    And, I'd be willing to bet, plenty of other EFL clubs in the years to come. The financials in the lower leagues are just that bad. Bolton was in the PL as late as 2012, even made it to the last 16 of the UEFA Cup in 2008, now they likely won't exist.

    This is a pretty good example of the financial instabilty in the EFL from the 2017/18 Championship season:
    https://financialfootballnews.com/cha...inances-wages/

    This lists the clubs Finances to Wages ratio. If a club is at 100% they're at a 1:1 ratio of money earned to money spent on player wages.

    The average was 115%.

    Lower league English clubs are basically spending themselves to death to try to get a piece of the PL pie.

    great. Newcastle plays Leicester today. Maybe Newcastle will prevent the other team from scoring points while they themselves score many points.

    first team to ever win a road game at their current stadium...3-2...very similar game to last night except MNUFC was up 1-0 before giving up 2 goals and then Atlanta got a red card and MNUFC scored 2 in stoppage time to win...was hoping the rest would repeat itself...sadly it did not. Pretty proud of them for not crumbling after that fluky first goal and the 2nd one so quick after that.

    It was mostly in jest.

    I thought MNUFC played well considering. Atlanta is just a tough team to beat.

    I was quite happy with what they did after it was 2-0. They had their chances. Boxall, Opara and Toye just didn't quite have the final touch they wanted.

    Do they have a buyer or did they just get an extension because a buyer is in negotiations?
