Like most City fans, I watched with dismay at the fate of Bury going bust, likely to be followed by Bolton Wanderers in coming weeks. I can only imagine what the fans of these clubs are feeling this morning. It is only 4 years ago this week when a second string Leicester City side containing a player by the name of N'Golo Kante (whatever happened to him?) beat Bury 4-1 in the League Cup at Gigg Lane. It is only 6 years since Leicester beat Bolton 1-0 to clinch the Championsip at the Reebok Stadium. How things change. Leicester fans of all people can relate to how the fans of Bury and Bolton must be feeling this morning. The question I have is, what could be done to help and should we help?
For Bury the only way forward would appear to be a Wimbledon/ Newport County type set up with forming a new club in the lower leagues. The same applies possibly to Bolton within the next 14 days. Could we , for example, hold a special "Birch's run" at a forthcoming City game. Would City fans support this? The money raised could be given to a new supporters trust for the 2 clubs to help them get back on their feet. Your comments, positive and negative, would be welcome. Some may think "Tough luck, that's football" others may want to help out. What do you think?
