Hi all-lifelong Shaker (55) here.
Pretty desperate times at Gigg Lane with our previous owner vastly over-spending and our new one proving difficult to say the least.
Suffice to say we have a winding up order deferred to the 19th June and hopefully will go into administration to save the club.
I went to Filbert Street 24/01/76 and saw a narrow one nil victory for yourselves FA Cup 4th round, and have seen at least 1 League Cup games at Gigg since then.
Clearly we won't play you in the league for some time if at all, but If you can assist though people, fivers, tenners, not asking the earth it would be greatly appreciated. .

Would be nice if your two rich neighbours to the south could throw a friendly or two your way to raise a bit of cash. Suppose they'll be too busy conquering new key markets abroad this summer as usual though. :rolleyes:

I do respect that area for supporting Bury/Rochdale etc when I imagine it's so easy to support either Manchester club.

 

Good luck.

Good luck, seems like a pretty terrible situation there. Nicky Adams has left you now hasn't he? 

Gone to Northampton.

Never understood why it’s bigger clubs fault that smaller clubs go bust and that they should help out...

I'm not saying it is, although if you look at the disparity in funding between the Premier League and lower leagues then that's undoubtedly contributed.

 

I'm just saying it'd be a nice gesture.

As he says below, not the big club's fault necessarily. There is a bigger gap between the big and the small clubs thanks to the TV payments.

 

However, it doesn't take a lot to organise a friendly match with all proceeds going to the club. Look at Bayern who do it regularly in Germany. Most recently they played a friendly in Kaiserslautern where all proceeds went to the host club and it allowed them to pay for their licence to stay in the third division. It's just a simple, nice gesture from a big club to help out clubs who are less fortunate.

 

In real life, that's like saying people who earn 6 or 7 figure salaries should do nothing to help combat poverty because "it's not their fault" people are poor/in financial difficulties.

Of course it would be a nice gesture, but don’t moan at them for not going out of their way to do it. As for your last part, why should people who earn 6 or 7 figure salaries be expected to help people in financial difficulties? Makes no sense.

Personally always felt Premier League should oblige all clubs of their division to play one local fixture a year. 

 

Under Klopp, Liverpool have done it repeatedly. For example, they are off Bradford and then go off to the US. 

 

Subversively it actually is the bigger clubs fault's why smaller clubs are struggling - bigger clubs have pushed wages up, bigger clubs have demanded an academy system which allows them to pinch the best players, it's a domino effect that filters down level by level. Yeah it's harsh to say it is the fault of the bigger clubs but they make up the machine which causes the League1, League2 and Conference some major issues.

They do - a higher tax band.

So you are OK with footballers earning 400k a week (less of course tax) and not giving any money to charity or any similar acts of goodwill. Much rather they can spend all their money on jewellery and flashy cars.

 

If you really think that's OK, then you have a strange mindset.

Plenty of them do give to charity, they have their own foundations.

Exactly, so why shouldn't rich football clubs help those that are in need of charitable donations to stay functional? Very little effort to play a friendly match. Just don't get people's negative attitude towards the idea of it.

It’s there money, they can literally do what they want with it.

I’m obviously not negative to them helping out 😂 I’m just saying it’s not really their problem and they shouldn’t be slated if they didn’t.
