Wow! That’s a crazy situation to arise. You gotta feel for the fans.

Whatever our club has gone through this season at least it's all been about football and not off field problems. What a mess if your a Bolton fan. Probably a points deduction on the way, but that will only serve to punish the fans and the new owners that take over so pointless really.

I bet they'd give anything for Marcus Evans.

Would a points reduction be for next season? That would be pointless ( no pun intended) if it’s for this season... they’re going down anyway.

Suppose it would depend on when the hearing was. Just pleased it's not our club.

I think any points deduction would almost certainly have to be for next season, I think the punishment for this one could be heavy.

I would imagine it would be like the administration deduction..... if you are already relegated, the points re deducted for the next season

Whatever the reason, I always find it very sad when any football club, especially one of the really old ones with a rich history, have problems like Bolton are experiencing. It somehow doesn't seem entirely fair considering the many millions of pounds sloshing around in the Premiership.

Yes they were big and established once but had their most recent glamor era back in the late 1950's. Haven't done much in the time since, the last occasion they won anything substantial even I can't recall.

A points deduction this season - however academic it would seem - could at least save ourselves from an end position in the league but as mentioned any points loss would most likely be implemented next season if it all.

Bottom line they got a few issues there but the club will continue to exist. Similar position to ourselves not only in league placing, (but) possessing an owner many fail to recognize or causing hostilities. Not enough money invested to make the team competitive and players on board that are nowhere near good enough. Shame to see from a neutral perspective but they'll continue as before in a lower league from August.

I think that's what happened to Luton. A 15 point deduction to start the season with. Tie that in with having no money and you don't stand much of a chance.

If that happens and they survive, at least we would be above them for a few games next season!😂

Apparently Bolton have stated they are unable to fulfil their remaining fixtures.

So, how does this leave the Championship division ? Are ALL Bolton’s previous fixtures / results now scrubbed and every club that has played them has their points tally amended?

Suspect the games would just be awarded to the other team as it would have no overall impact.

Bolton then in big trouble next season if they happen to still be in existence!
