It means nothing of the sort, you clearly didn't understand what he was explaining.

What Ten Bob was saying almost certainly happened to the money after he received it - ie to pay off Holdsworth.

He never once mentioned how the £525,000 was made up of.

It's abundantly clear you are anti-Anderson but you're clearly talking out of your backside on this occasion.

It's rather unclear to me from this email as to exactly what he's saying.

You can read it in many different ways

1) the payment of consultancy fees was over a two year period and included promotion bonuses 

2) That a payment was made, we don't know what for, or to who, but ncluded promotion bonuses.

It's speculation that some or all of it went to Dean Holdsworth

The problem I have is that Anderson's "explanations" all fly in the face of what everyone else who has dealings with him are saying. That and the tone and reckless lack of diplomacy of his wording.

I just struggle to see how everyone else is a wrong, especially as Anderson has already proved himself to be a liar with his own words.

Well Kieran Maguire Lecture in Football Finance at Liverpool university clearly is judging by his tweets and he has (I presume?) just tried to do a hatchet job on KA based on the last accounts which covered our season in the third tier two years ago, by publishing this -

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This is my thoughts on it which I originally posted over on ww's.

For what it is worth my quick summing up of the piece is that Kieran Maguire as simply rehashed old news about our company accounts for the year we had in the third tier of football, two seasons ago - I don't see the point really? 

For what it is worth there is certainly one factual inaccuracy he stated in his article that even a non Lecturer in Football Finances such as myself could see! 

However he does include a number of points of interest (to me at least), the first being in respect of what the club was paying to Holdsworth in respect of just the interest HE was charging the club on the BluMarble deal HE set up on the clubs assets (remember the BM loan was to his Sports Shield BWFC company, which in turn he leant on to the club) - 

"Bolton also paid £33,000 a week in 2016/17 in interest charges, partly due to an unusual arrangement with a company called Sports Shield BWFC Limited, controlled by Dean Holdsworth, which charged a Wonga-Tastic 24% interest per annum..." 

That works out at an eye watering £1,716,000 to Holdsworth from the club and that's on top of him being paid the clubs highest wages as the clubs CEO (and people are bitching solely about KA's £525,000 he took in that season accounts?). 

The next is this statement from Maguire - 

"This is where Dean Holdsworth and Ken Anderson stepped in, although it seems the former was all fur coat and no knickers when it came to covering the day to day running costs, and the two fell out, resulting in Anderson obtaining majority control". 

Clearly confirming what KA had been saying all along and hardly an equal partnership between the two on keeping the club running - particularly in view of the point above of Holdsworth taking around £2 million out of the club that year in interest charges and salary alone! 

The next point I found of interest was this - 

"Love them or hate them, player wages are a regular topic for discussion amongst fans and based on a rough and ready formula we estimate that Bolton’s first team squad would have been averaging £335,000 a year"

Just puts into context the job KA's had to turn the club around with no financial help from Holdsworth - remember DH should have brought £5 million NEW investment into the club - not take £5 million out of it via the BM loan.  In effect KA has had to refund the £5 million for BM plus bridge the gap where DH's 'new' £5 million should have been - so in effect start from minus £10 million from where he should have been in attempting to turn the club around!!!

Next, 

"Anderson was paid £525,000 for his services via Inner Circle Investments Limited, a company he set up in 2015 with an investment of £1 of shares. By having such an arrangement, it allows him to legitimately say that he is not being paid a salary by Wanderers". 

This is merely confirmation of what I said yesterday that (weasel words or not) KA was not telling lies when he said he was not being paid a salary.
 
Finally and no doubt he really tried to nail this one, 

"In addition, £125,000 was paid to another member of the Anderson family, which appears to Ken’s son Lee Anderson, via something called the Athos Group. A trawl of Company’s House reveals that Athos Group is a services company that seems to have no executive called Lee Anderson". 

As I've said all along there is still no proof to the claim that nearly everybody makes that LH is being paid £125,000 each year in wages. 

(Maybe he is but even someone who is clearly anti-Anderson as Maguire is can't prove it!). 

As for him being anti-Anderson this is a tweet he's just made - 

"A Bolton fan asked me if it’s deliberate that the first letter of each sentence of the #BWFC financial review spells ‘Ken Anderson has a small willy’. It’s just an amazing coincidence, I’ve never met Ken or measured his todger". 

Hardly necessary or professional of him to tweet stuff like that to his 'audience' is it?

I went on to say in a follow up post this (slightly amended to put in context to what I've already said above).

...But before others jump on my case, look what Holdsworth was taking out of the club - something like four times as much as KA was - yet KA is seen as the bad guy in all of this?  


If Holdsworth had put the £5 million from his own funds as he should have done and not stitched us up with BM and taking out of the club circa £2 million that season then maybe the money might have been there to pay the bills on time right from the start!

Now there's a thought!

Conversely, if he stays, he will have more opportunity to bleed the club dry and given that we're losing money hand over fist anyway the sooner it stops the better. 

There's no money to be made in the Championship as the figures for all teams show year on year so any Championship owner has to either invest sufficient money to get promotion or stabilise the business so that it can operate within it's means and accept lower division status.

Anderson has neither the means to invest nor the nous to stabilise so either way he has to go if we are to survive, regardless of the pain of change.

Not to beat a dead horse - but all this is because Big Eddie sold us to people who had no money.
I'm not sure what we expect at this stage. Ken might pocket a few bucks for himself but overall the club is skint and will lose more money this season. Only way to fix this is to unload the club at a bargain price and there are no signs of that happening at the moment. 
On the field we can dodge relegation with a bit more gumption from PP. Remaining in the Champs obviously makes us more attractive to a buyer. To me that's the only goal for this season.

Yes I get all that, but there's nobody wanting in, so as much as it pains us he's all we've got, and if he just upped and left we'd have no funding whatsoever, again it's painful having him here but I wonder what the alternative would bring.

Wondering why they stuck their oar in, but I suppose everyone has an opinion. Here it is...

On Monday evening, Mr Anderson posted a 1,580 word statement on the official Bolton Wanderers website, where he addressed a number of issues, including the failed transfer, Mr Dale's comments and the recent coverage he has received from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] .
In response, two baronesses from Bolton have issued their own joint statement where they address the current ownership of the club.
Rt Hon Baroness Ann Taylor of Bolton and Baroness Trish Morris of Bolton released the statement on Tuesday afternoon. It reads: "Through decades of following Bolton Wanderers, with season tickets first at Burnden Park and throughout the years at our fantastic new stadium, we have seen many ups and downs in the club’s fortunes, both on and off the pitch. But the events of the last few weeks and months have, for the first time, moved us to speak publicly about our grave concern over the way Bolton Wanderers – our beloved football club – is being run. "We have spent months listening to empty promises from the Chairman and his excuses as to why wages and bonuses have not been paid on time. We have seen Marc Iles, the esteemed journalist from the Bolton News, having his credentials withdrawn after asking legitimate questions about the way the club is being run. And in the last few days we have heard reports of shameful behaviour in transfer dealings with other clubs. "We can no longer stand idly by and watch our club being treated like this. The staff deserve better, the players deserve better and most important the fans deserve better. Every football club deserves to be run by someone who sees themselves more of a custodian than a 'secured lender'. Bolton Wanderers belongs to the community and its loyal and devoted fans are embarrassed by the way it is being run and genuinely worried about what the future holds for our once proud football club.
"We grew up watching Bolton Wanderers, and we brought our children up watching Bolton Wanderers. We have cheered, cried, shouted, frozen for decades and we want our football club to survive to allow future generations of Wanderers fans to enjoy the ups and downs of following such a wonderful club. If things continue as they are, we are seriously worried that this may not be the case."
So there you have it. Marc Iles is an "esteemed journalist" apparently. I thought he was just a bloke trying to do his job.

Just for the record it as been brought to my attention that Baroness Trish Morris is the wife of Judge William Morris who is friends with non other than Terence Rigby the Chair of the ST, which are in turn great allies of that "esteemed journalist" Marc Iles.

I did think it was highly random for the two Baroness to get involved as they did (didn't anyone else think that too?) - and probably explains the high praise for Iles if they didn't actually pen the letter themselves but rather just put their names to it.

Water under the bridge now though.

I don't believe the ST which is a public body, is run in the way a public body should run, in my opinion - and I've stated that many a time.  The fact the one year out of its three year existence so far it failed to even hold its mandatory AGM underlines that point.

As for Iles I've again stated often that it was completely unprofessional and prejudicial of him in his reporting in a fair and unbiased way by tweeting his personal negative views of the owner from his Twitter account.  His boss Karl Holbrook interview on BBC Radio Manchester this week, where he stated that he had told Iles and Bonner to keep their 'emotions' to themselves, is evidence that he believes it to be highly unprofessional too.

Maybe if both the ST and Iles had been doing their jobs in a professional manner in which they were supposed to be doing in the first place I wouldn't have had anything critical to be saying of them.

Neither would have been very hard for them to do in the first place - would it!

If we play attacking football like we did for second half against Walsall for the rest of the season we have a chance of staying up. As that won't happen, we are going down.

The arsehole we've got running the club has been caught talking crap again.He has criticised the Baronesses for not being season ticket holders when in fact they both are.

Trish Morris on twitter -Perhaps Mr Anderson should check his club records rather  than rely on a "source" If he looked me up under the name of Mrs T Morris he would find my season ticket.I have been a Bolton Wanderers supporter much longer than I Have been a Baroness!

Ann Taylor on twitter - Ken is wrong again Been a season ticket at Burnden for years and every year since we moved to the Reebok, including this season.

I'll tell you what's stranger, that KA's been here for all but three years, everybody and his dog is claiming he's done this, that and the other yet all the regulatory bodies in the country including the EFL (to which the ST is a frequent caller to), the judiciary with all these 'can't fail to nail him this time' Wind Up petitions and the police serious fraud squad (because he's definitely been robing the club and everyone else blind!) have not yet laid a single glove on him?

How can that be?

He's there in plain sight, he's a known crook so most seem to believe, and he sticks his head up above the parapet and gives it back to those who think they have the better of him.

If you truly believe he's done something massively wrong by being the sole Director in a private limited company he own's over 94% of then do something about it and stop bleating on to me about how 'what a bad man' he is.

Here's the link to Company House - have you brought it up with them - or maybe you have already and politely told you to go away perhaps?

If KA is as bad as everyone thinks, then why is every legislative with power to do something about it, not done something about it yet?

Do people really believe his best mate at the EFL turns a blind eye to things rather than apply the organisations rules and regs?  Is he really too 'slippery' even for the courts and HMRC to pot him?  Are the police powerless to arrest him for all these apparent frauds he's been doing?

I've said before I work on the old fashion principle - which was established long before social media was invented - that someone is innocent before they are proved guilty.  Unfortunately we now seem to live in Twitterland these days where people definitely think he's guilty because 'No Ken Do' is currently trending, and everybody else is tweeting he is!

Here's the link for you -

Following our Emirates FA Cup victory against Walsall last weekend we return to league action tomorrow when we make the trip to Bristol City.

Having scored five goals in the second-half of that cup victory, confidence levels will be high going into the game at Ashton Gate and I’m certain the players will put in a performance that will get us a positive result.
It was pleasing to see Josh Magennis get a hat-trick and also for Clayton Donaldson to get off the mark, so I’m sure they will be champing at the bit to get back out onto the field.

We’ll be backed by a strong travelling support and I’d like to wish you all a safe journey to Bristol as you cheer on the lads.

We are hoping to confirm that Gary O’Neil has signed a new deal with the club and are just waiting on some paperwork. He’s currently injured so wouldn’t have been involved to play against his former club tomorrow. We’ll confirm this via the usual channels as soon as we get the green light.

Unfortunately, both Joe Williams and Yanic Wildschut are set for a spell on the sidelines with injuries but they will be in the good hands of our medical team and hopefully will be back in action sooner rather than later.

The date for our Fourth Round tie against The Robins has been confirmed today and it will take place on Friday 25 January and kick off at 7:45pm.
While the league game at the University of Bolton Stadium against Reading, which was scheduled for the Saturday, will now kick off on Tuesday 29 January at 8pm. Tickets for this game are £15 for adults and £10 for concessions and can be purchased by clicking here.

I’ve noted that some fans groups have organised a protest for our game against West Brom on Monday 21 January. While I’m pleased that they have changed their minds not to walk out of the game on the 58th minute I also don’t feel it is a good idea for them to hold their protest march before the game kicks off. I don’t think that this benefits anyone and can only bring negative publicity to the club.

It certainly won’t make me rush into selling the club if that’s the real intention of the march. I have always made my position absolutely clear insofar as that if and when a new investor came forward that I would be a willing seller if that would enable the club to have better financial resources and prospects going forward.

It’s also been brought to my attention that club legend John McGinlay will be leading this march which I find very disappointing. I have never spoken with John and he has never made any attempt to contact or speak with me to air his views, which I am sure would have offered him plenty of reassurance.

Along with the Baronesses, who made their views known in the media, a ‘source’ has confirmed to me that none of them are current season ticket holders and have not been so for a number of years now!

I really do hope that those who are planning and taking part in the proposed march think again and that the game can go ahead without any distractions for the players.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to clear up a point which was incorrectly reported in the media that claimed Aaron Wilbraham hadn’t been paid a bonus due to him following the end of last season. I would like to place on record that there are no outstanding monies owed to Aaron. 

Finally, you may be aware of the reports in the media which mentioned the winding up petition against Bolton Whites Hotel. I would like to confirm that this matter has now been settled.

I look forward to seeing you all back at the University of Bolton Stadium for our next Sky Bet Championship fixture against West Brom.

Best Wishes,

Ken

I hate to say it, as he talks bollocks generally, but Sluffy has made some decent points in his post before last.

I also agree about the baronesses. Did seem very random to me.
