Tomorrow Is D-Day for Bolton Wanderers

After delaying in court twice, tomorrow we shall see how this whole saga ends.

We are highly likely to see a definitive end to our protracted money troubles tomorrow, well, hopefully, at least.

Bolton Wanderers will appear in court for the third time to sort the monies owed to HMRC, be it one of 3 ways:

  1. The money from the sale of the training ground are put towards paying the bill which could potentially change the deal that Sports Shield have in place to buy it. Can't see this happening. Whether this cash has already gone or Eddie Davies has other plans for it, I don't know, but they've been reluctant to use it thus far.
  2. We enter voluntary administration, where by an administrator is hired to make deals with creditors and sell assets to pay said creditors. This would result in a points deduction, the final nail of the 15,000 others in Wanderers Championship coffin.
  3. Sports Shield's bid is ratified by the Football League and they are in a position to pay the bill. This doesn't look likely as we've heard nothing from any party about it being close to finishing. You also would have thought that it's very unlikely the Football League will be sorting this late on a Sunday.

At this stage there is no concrete evidence as to what the clubs hierarchy are planning but another ajournment is almost certainly out of the question given Wanderers lack of progress in the last two the court has granted.

We will be live tweeting from the courtroom on a day that could shape Bolton Wanderers for years to come, so be sure to keep a close eye on @LionOfViennaSte tomorrow.
