If Bury go pop before the fixtures are announced, I don't see why clubs can't be reprieved or prompted to make up the numbers.

Don't forget Sina that there are always exceptions to the rules :lol:

I won't be satisfied until there is a stake through the heart and the EFL 2019-2010 kicks off.

That would just be a nightmare of epic proportions to sort out.

If we were to be promoted then Colchester can argue they should have been in the play offs. Tranmere would have played Newport in the semis. etc etc etc

It impacts not upon the EFL however with Gateshead relegated to National League North (as a team unable to compete or complete their fixtures next season) Aldershot receive a reprieve in the National League and no longer relegated.

Scenario different to the Bury situation of course and perhaps tenuous in associating the two but in amongst the discussion of what happens to Bury/Counteh etc I thought I'd share

That is entirely different as Gateshead were relegated and we are talking about Bury going out of existence.

The number of conference clubs hasn't changed just the divisions they play in. The maths are simple for them where as the league would be a club short and that club would be a league one club. You can't use the same solution.

12.2.3 …. during the period between the conclusion of the last Play-Off Match and the start of the following Season, its playing record shall not be expunged but the number of relegation places from the Division in which a Club would have played but for its cessation of membership, shall be reduced by the number of Clubs ceasing to be members and, during that Season, the relevant Division shall operate with a reduced number of Clubs.”

So If Bury cease to exist before the start of next season, then the number of relegation places from League 1 (the Division in which Bury would have played but for its cessation of membership) shall be reduced by one. League Two (the relevant Division for these purposes) will operate with 23 clubs.

So the fourth bottom team in League 1 gets to stay in League 1 and League 2 has only 23 clubs.

So we get one less game for our season tickets!

No.
The rules say "the relevant Division shall operate with a reduced number of Clubs.” Here the "relevant" Division (ie. "the Division in which a Club would have played") is League One, not League Two.
League One would therefore operate with 23 clubs, (and the number of relegation places from League One would be reduced by one).


Clearly the Conference operate under different rules as Aldershot have been reprieved from relegation after Gateshead were punished.

I think it was very obvious that Aldershot were going to be reprieved at the Conference "AGM cup". It was in line with what has happened previously in the Conference.

The Conference and English Football League are two entirely separate, but intertwined by promotion/ relegation completions. Two differing sets of criteria need to be met for participating in each relevant competition.

Why all the confusion? More importantly focus on the bigger picture i.e. the stranglehold some competitions have over and have ruined their relevant national leagues and football in general. Look at how the Premier League voted against reviewing European football competition through worrying about their tv deal.

Revolution my friends, we all need to play our part to save football as a whole.

Bury to make 10-12 employees redundant and staff are accused by the new owner Steve Dale (SD2) of trying to extort money from the club by insisting on being paid their wages instead of just leaving and finding jobs elsewhere!!

https://www.burytimes.co.uk/news/177020 ... ef=mr&lp=3

Steve Dale: "If you read my past statements I indeed made clear that staff will be let go as we are overstaffed. That’s just commercial sense. What you should be asking is, these staff who are purporting to love the club, why didn’t they just go and find other jobs? But no, they are trying to extort money from the club."

He has a point to be fair although maybe his frustration and stress of the situation has taken over and he should think about the words he uses. His point comes over a little pointedly and aggressive.

Knowing the clubs predicament financially if I were an employee Id perhaps look elsewhere and in their defence maybe they have been but merely not found appropriate alternative employment elsewhere hence why they still work at Bury FC?

Come on guys, these employees are owed wages, unpaid for some time, why should they turn their backs and walk away when jobs are not that easy to find.
I know from experience, to walk away from work volunterily is considered by the DWP to be deliberately rendering yourself unemployed and therefore not eligable for any benefits for about 12 weeks.

Agree.

Just because you have a love for a club, the bills still need to be paid. Can't blame the staff for bad staffing management.

Agree entirely. They were offered a position and accepted. It is the responsibility of the employer to fulfil their contractual obligation.
