Kettering:

Ridiculous.

Might be a few players there worth looking at though?!

Sadly BBC link not working as I write

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/footbal ... efault.stm

but I understand that the club has been placed under a transfer embargo which means that the three players they've brought in on loan this week have to go back, but the three they've shipped out are gone; and they're having to field youth team players this weekend

http://www.poppynet.co.uk/viewtopic.php ... 8&start=10

What a mess.

I remember a similar scenario at Weymouth a few years back ahead of a home game against Rushden (remember them??). The bookies hadn't twigged what was going on and failed to adjust the odds. As it was Rushden won 9-0 and a few Weymouth fans made more than a few quid out of the game

Hmmm, we can think of one player they might sell for rather a lot of money....

Truro struggling to fill the bench and resorting to "having bodies available" :shock:

I'm sure we all wish them well...

In the case of Kettering, promised sponsorship of over a million quid is pretty huge money. Makes you wonder why someone would pump such a sum into a club at Kettering's level and whether the club were wise to budget for such a sum coming in. Such a reliance on a single party to finance the club smacks of blind faith at best and naivety at worst - talk about all your eggs being in one basket!

ALso symptomatic of what is going on at non-league in general. Totally unsustainable and bound to end in tears sooner or later. CLubs must spread their risk and live within their means!!

Don't football authorities conduct any form of audit on clubs to ensure that they are being run on relatively sound foundations?

You're having a laugh Perton, if they let it happen at the top without any control why are they going to bother at grass roots. After all we are talking about the sweet FA here.

I'm hearing that Darlington have gone into administration for the third time, though I haven't yet got official confirmation

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/16355902.stm

Oh, how loveable we all thought George Reynolds was when he used to be interviewed regularly in the media..... but oh, what an unbearable burden he left the club with, wonderful though their white elephant new stadium is

:roll:

The problem is that, even if Darlington go under, no phoenix club could possibly take on the commitment of the Darlington Arena (or whatever its name is this week) and while there was talk of them moving back to Feethams, it's an overgrown mess, at present, I think.

All very sad - and as ever one's sympathy goes to the fans, it's not their fault that their club fell into the hands of a clown who had ideas way beyond their realistic station in life

It would certainly make a good pub quiz question ..

LOL, we'd better be careful because of the libel laws, we don't want real clowns suing us for defamation by comparing them to (muppet) s like GR, IL, SC, etc etc etc....
