Was at the Chelsea-Huddersfield game yesterday, complete with all the hospitality, etc. Now that's how to run a football club.

According to Iles there is now a rival bid from Russia.

Russian interest emerges in Bolton Wanderers takeover talks

Hopes of a swift resolution to takeover talks at Bolton Wanderers are starting to fade, The Bolton News understands.


A group led by a UK-based investor has been in advanced negotiations with owner Ken Anderson since last week, holding talks in London over the sale of his 94.5 per cent controlling stake in the club.

An outline deal had been agreed in principle, and was subject to EFL approval. The lack of progress on final details over the weekend is said to be a concern but talks are set to continue today.

It has also emerged that Anderson engaged with a second prospective buyer from Russia some weeks ago and remains in dialogue.

Anderson has made no secret of his desire to sell to the right person and has reached this advanced stage before, only for the deal to fall down.

The Wanderers owner assured supporters last month: “I am the first to admit that the club needs someone with greater financial resources than l have to take the club forward and l can assure everyone l am doing my utmost to achieve this.”

Wanderers were beaten 2-0 by Sheffield United on Saturday and now sit three points from safety in the Championship.

Assistant manager Steve Parkin admits the failure land Blades striker Ched Evans was a crushing blow on deadline day “We thought we had managed to do it,” he said.

Evans scored a winner for Fleetwood against Charlton, two days after the League One club had refused to sign paperwork releasing the 30-year-old from a loan spell.

“It doesn’t surprise me, that’s why we wanted to bring him here,” Parkin added. “The lad wanted to come and it was bitterly disappointing for us all but we have to move on from that now. It’s no good wallowing in self-pity, we have got to roll our sleeves.”

Why am I not surprised? 
This is Anderson we're talking about. Can't wait to read him telling us how unreasonable/skint/unfit to own the club the UK consortium were.

Don't suppose we'll ever know what "final details" couldn't be agreed. I don't think you can consider price and terms of payment as "details" so what could this be a reference to I wonder?

Actually I don't wonder. It's the old mysterious second bidder trick.

Does anyone think Anderson has ever had any interest in the club except for the money he can make out of it?

Not at all KP. Think of it as more a drowning man being allowed a last gasp of air !
It was great to see some really good football. Reminded me of how we used to play, sometimes, in our dim and distant past.
The whole package, hospitality, organisation, ground, seats, etc were spot on. Mind you, I haven't a clue how much such a season ticket would cost, in the thousands, as we paid not one pence for anything, including the free wine, Just £45 return on the train.
I'm looking forward to when we return to the big times, with our new owner(s), although I fear I might be dust by then  Very Happy

In a statement on the club's website, Anderson wrote: "I have seen the comments both in the media and on social media which allude to the fact that I am about to sell my stake in the club to a UK consortium.
"While I'd rather not comment on media speculation of this nature I would suggest that you ignore these rumours and treat them as pure media speculation.

"Of course it is no secret that I am looking for investment but I receive many enquiries virtually every week, a great deal of which often come from time wasters and dreamers who are unable to offer any proof of funding and disappear as quickly as they arrive.


"In my experience, when people leak details of a deal they rarely occur which is probably because they weren't in a position to do a deal in the first place.

"For the record, I didn't have any meetings in London last week in connection with a sale of the club.

"My focus, along with the management and recruitment team, was solely on recruitment and fending off unwanted bids for our players. Despite media comments of fire sales, players demanding transfers and unrest amongst the players, not one player left in the January transfer window.


"I can confirm, however, that detailed discussions are taking place with an interested party but as I am sure that you will appreciate I am unable to give you details at this stage."

Obviously a load of Marc Iles codswallop again. Given the BN agenda, it's pointless believing anything they write these days. I don't see any reason to blame Anderson for this latest round of fake news.

In an eventful day at the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  Stadium, a consortium fronted by a London-based investor who appeared to be on the verge of buying the club on Saturday evening claimed he had walked away from the deal completely citing a last-minute disagreement over terms.


That says a deal was agreed and Ken upped his asking price.

From Charlton Life 2016...
In Mail today
Bolton Wanderers new chairman Ken Anderson,a former football agent, was disqualified as a company director from 2005 until 2013 for transgressions including diverting company funds into personal accounts, VAT discrepancies and failure to cooperate with receivers. The Football League say Anderson passed their owners and directors test because his sentence has been served
It would appear that anyone can pass their test.


It's laughable that he passes the test but it's not funny for Bolton fans. Another club that will be destroyed thanks to the football league. But if they start protesting they need to be ready for investigations into their behaviour, not the fact that the football league let the guy into football club ownership in the first place!




I gave it a LOL, but this is actually completely and utterly fecking barmy.

The guy is clearly neither fit or proper to be involved with the running of a football club, that much is so very clear by his track record. To make matters worse though, he's being appointed a position at Bolton. Bolton who are, right now, the perfect example of financial mismanagement.

A club who have found themselves nowhere short of being a failure, had to fight off administration and are now facing what must be one of their lowest positions in recent history.

If, by some unsurprising turn of events, this appointment doesn't work out - who is it that will suffer? Is it the Football League? Is it the Chairman himself? Or is it thousands of fans who are supporting their club during one of it's darkest periods?

I think it's relatively easy to argue that the Football League are proving themselves to be incapable of fulfilling their responsibilities, and something really must change.

Aye. We are a 2nd tier club averaging over 14,000 crowds and have made over a £10 million profit in the transfer market in Ken's time.
Our first choice striker with everyone fit is currently the 35 year old never was Clayton Donaldson.
Apparantly we are on course to be the lowest scorers in the 2nd tier since 3 points for a win was introduced in 1981/82
Clayton Donaldson must be up there as one of the worst first choice strikers at any 2nd tier club in that time.
Thanks Ken
