This is the latest setback for the club which has been embroiled in turmoil for some time and despite hope of a takeover, the delay is causing severe problems.
From playing youth team players to postponing matches, there are big question marks hanging over the club, and as long as it stays in administration the problems look likely to continue.
Consortium Football Ventures had looked to be in pole position to takeover but a court order from Laurence Bassini, who is also interested in taking over, blocked that from happening – prompting Parkinson to issue a stern warning to him to ‘stay away from the club’.
The club is now in limbo and the management staff feel their position is untenable, so Bolton fans are now pleading with the administrators to get something done as quickly as possible in order to prevent further chaos.
Here are some of the responses from hopeless Bolton fans.
Get this mess sorted as soon as possible! The club is being torn apart and it can’t be allowed to happen any longer.
