I can't see him touching PP with a barge pole. He treat him abysmally, it's been McCall who's got the best out of him.
Agreed - lazy journalism of the highest order from HITC.

You might wish to place supporting info with the sentence, otherwise it will be seen ass tosh!
It probably will anyway Kev. Not too fussed, time will tell as it always does. What will be, will be. For now, all I care about is getting into and then winning the playoffs.

I think whoever churns out this rubbish is a dog botherer and delights in this unfounded rubbish just as a wind up against city fans.
Charlton yes, Bolton - not a chance.

Article by London News Online regarding Mark Marshall:

https://www.londonnewsonline.co.uk/...thletic-keen-bradford-star-free-agent-summer/


I think leaving contract talks this late, could come back and bite us..

We had better get used to this for two reasons

1) Naturally players are out of contract and thus are being spivved about by their agents
2) Fellow play off managers wishing to unsettle players, who they will face in the play offs

Mind games is nothing new

And Mark Marshall going to Bolton has to be the latter!

I know you revel in anything pro Bolton that could potentially harm Bradford but you know aswell as I do that theres more chance of me asking PP to be the best man at my wedding than Mark Marshall signing for him again.
From the guy who said Morais hated Parky and his tactics

Footballers aren't sentimental. If Bolton were able to offer him a contract on championship wages do you think he wouldn't consider it? Course he would.

If they are losing , yes losing £800, 000 a month already paying CC wages (most of current squad already on them) please explain how they can finance life in the CC. And survive as a club.

The previous owner "gave away " £86 million of his families wealth supporting Boltons life in the CC

Please explain your reasoning of how it can be achieved

Hence the word 'IF'. I don't know how Bolton's financial position might change if they're promoted.

It costs more in the CC, so "if" is pretty pointless.

Were we to be promoted our owners will need to provide an increase in backing monies unless another revenue stream is found (ticket prices fixed already)

Whereas Bolton will have to borrow more, which is unlikely as the cannot pay off their current spending and debt financing.

I do, unless they can find another sugar daddy they are in all kinds of trouble. At some point their debtors will want payment it will only take one if them to send them into administration. The kind of debt they are accruing is unworkable. Plus if the FA ever grow a pair they might have something to say to them. Trying to expand and buy better players is inconceivable.

Yes, it would get significantly worse if they even attempted to pay the was needed to stay up. We all know that Parkinson and money just don't go together. His best signings were free and cheap like Gary Jones

It's possible that Bolton will be promoted and then immediately enter administration, thus starting next season on minus 10 points.
I'd say what's the point? They might as well stay in league 1

they can cream off a years worth of Championship money, larger gates etc for a year then get immediately relegated.

The revenue stream is far higher in the Championship.

Even if they acted like a League One club and cut the wage bill massively, it makes far more sense to be in the Championship both pre- and post-admin.

Why would he go to bolton parky didn't like him before and he had seen him enough times being the manager so something wasn't right between them. I would rather be playing for another league 1 team than going to a team that might be in the championship with the same manager that kept him on the bench for most of the season, and they play boring football.
