There are a number of fringe players who haven't featured recently who we wouldn't miss if they weren't paid and decided to void their own contracts, but given that we are a team that's struggling it wouldn't make any sense for them to do that unless they were guaranteed a game and comparable wages at a lower league club which would seem umlikely. 
With the team in trouble, surely they won't get a better chance to hit form and force themselves back into the reckoning?

Surely the Players Union should only be paying the wages of players in crisis, i.e. those at risk of their homes being repossessed or not having money to put food on the table. Not millionaire players with mansions and flash cars.

Yes, the club owes these players money, but let's not pretend this is a humanitarian crisis.

Players Union aren’t short of cash judging by what Gordon Taylor takes home.

Nat. It's Christmas. How would you feel if your monthly wage of over 25k didn't come in.

You'd have to fall back on your million pounds of savings. 

Not really nice to say to the kids that Santa isn't going to arrive is it.

Ken Anderson: No truth in fire sale reports at Bolton Wanderers

Ken Anderson has bit back at suggestion players he could be forced to sell players to balance the books in January.

Championship clubs are eyeing potential bargains next month as Bolton’s much-publicised cashflow problems continue.

Players went a 10th successive day unpaid yesterday despite a deal being struck between Anderson and PFA chief Gordon Taylor to subsidise half of the overdue November salary.

Should the drama extend beyond the end of the week players could automatically become free agents – although that scenario looks highly unlikely now that the paperwork has been signed on the PFA loan.

Anderson painted a rosier picture yesterday as he dismissed wage problems to claim Wanderers would be looking to strengthen in the winter window.

“To make it absolutely clear all our players are under contract with the exception of Stephen Ireland and Gary O‘Neill, whose contracts end early January and we will discuss the position with both of them over the next few weeks,” he said. “There has been some media speculation about a fire sale in January, but l can assure you that there is absolutely no truth or financial need for this and we will review what we do in the window nearer the time when the management team and l will discuss what has and hasn’t worked so far and what we all think is needed to strengthen and improve the squad for the run in to give us the best opportunity of retaining our Championship status.”

Meanwhile, Leeds United will bring 4,500 supporters to the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday as Marcelo Bielsa’s side look to return to the top of the Championship.

Encouraged by his side’s performance in defeat at Norwich City, Phil Parkinson hopes his players will be able to bounce back quickly.

“It’s a confidence booster in one way because we’ve come to a team that everyone is talking about, riding high at the top of the league, played well and deserved something out of the game," he said.

You have to feel sorry for poor old Gordon coming under pressure from his own members whilst trying to make ends meet on a salary of £2.29million p.a.

It's good that ken has set the record straight. He's not been known to talk shite as far as I'm concerned.

I was empathising with him just like I empathised with Deano for not getting the £100K he wanted (allegedly) out of Xpro Management Services Ltd.

So pleased that Deano seemed to make up his loss from somewhere else.

So what's this about a hitch in the plans for the PFA bailout?

Bolton Wanderers Football Club can confirm that all outstanding salaries for its coaching and playing staff will be paid into their respective accounts on Friday morning.
The delay in payment had been caused after an option with the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) was explored. Although that option does remain in place at this moment in time, it is not the Club’s preferred route.

Instead, Bolton Wanderers’ owner and chairman Ken Anderson will personally fund the outstanding salaries.

The club would now like all attention turned towards Saturday’s important Sky Bet Championship fixture against Leeds United at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Bolton Wanderers will not be making any further comment on this matter.
