A note from the Chairman - Transfer embargo update
As mentioned in one of my recent notes, I have been in discussions with the EFL about the transfer embargo.
I am delighted to be able to tell you all that we are now out of the transfer embargo. 
We will now be able to register several of our existing players and I am pleased to tell you that Jeff King and Alex Perry will be the first to be registered so that they are now available for future selection in the First Team.
I feel sure that other promising players will soon join them. As has been widely reported a number of 'Free Agent' players are currently training with us, with a view to getting a contract. 
I would like to thank you all for the patience you have shown during this time. The situation has taken far longer to rectify than I had imagined, largely due to the much-publicised ownership situation which has thankfully now been resolved.
This is another positive step in the right direction and I trust that you will all continue to get behind Phil Parkinson, his staff and the players for the remainder of the campaign.
Kind regards,
Ken

Iles rewrite of Anderson's announcement -

Bolton Wanderers Football Club emerge from EFL transfer embargo after 630 days

BOLTON Wanderers have officially emerged from an EFL transfer embargo after 630 days.
The sanctions, which had been in place since Christmas Eve, 2015, prevented the club from paying fees for loans or permanent deals, restricted the squad to 24 professional players and also limited wages which could be offered to free agents to £4,500.
The embargo was enforced at the height of Wanderers’ financial crisis when they were unable to submit a return for Financial Fair Play. It has since emerged the special measures implemented by the EFL also covered other aspects of the club’s financial management, including a suitable business plan, submitted accounts and proof of funds.

It is understood that while the Whites have technically come out of embargo, the EFL will be insisting various financial criteria are met to allow the club to operate freely.
Revealing the news this afternoon, Wanderers chairman Ken Anderson said: “We are really pleased that the EFL has given us the go-ahead to come out of the transfer embargo.
“I would like to thank all the Bolton Wanderers supporters for their patience they have shown during this time. The situation has taken far longer to rectify than I had imagined, largely due to the much-publicised ownership situation which has thankfully now been resolved.
“This is another positive step in the right direction and I trust that everyone will all continue to get behind Phil Parkinson, his staff and his players for the remainder of the campaign.
“No further comments will be made at this time.”
Although the transfer window is now closed, the short-term benefits to the Whites are that they will be free to promote young professionals such as Jake Turner, Alex Perry and Jeff King to the first team.
They are also able to buy free agents – and have been strongly linked with ex-Arsenal striker Julio Baptista and former player Joey O’Brien

Well this is a shocker ......  this potentially could save our season if we can get some bodies in pronto.  We don't have to be world beaters but just enough to get on top of the Brentfords of this division.
A point this weekend will do us a world of good on top of this good news.

Great news two years in the making.

Time for quality reinforcements. Some decent freebies out there if we could afford them.

Out of your list I'd take Ledley and a punt on Lambert.

But would they take a punt on us?

Great news at a time when good news is at a premium. At least we can only go upwards in this league. should be interesting the next couple of weeks.

To be honest I think all of them are better than what we have. Lambert was a quality striker, difficult to determine how crap he's become, but definitely worth a punt.

Decent list of players but I suspect our level is still more at the Baptista, O'Brien level as I suspect money to pay the wages is still an issue.

To be honest I'm not bothered who we bring in as long as they contribute to us staying up this year.

Next season we will have Pratley and Dervite off the pay-roll finally, and have only Amos left on silly money - hopefully then we can start to push on up the table, with players on sensible contracts.

Is there anyone who would like Spearing back?

Not a chance I'd want him coming back, he thinks he's better than he actually is.

True, but sadly he is better than anything we have right now.

I honestly can't remember a worse midfield 3 than Karacan(t), Cullen & Pratley.

It might be an old school throwback post to you but we get it every week!

(Thankfully she's forgotten all about Alan Irvine for our next manager).

Very Happy
