Taken from Forest Greens owners Facebook page. I heard stories that Bolton were in trouble, but this shows they are even mugging off league 2 sides. Club in crisis ahead of their trip to the gate on Saturday? From Monday morning, Christian Doidge is back with FGR. We've taken the decision to recall him after his loan agreement expired last week amid continual contractual breaches by Bolton Wanderers. It became clear to us that Bolton entered into a contract to loan and then buy Christian last August without the means to honour it, and perhaps the intention to do so as well. They haven't even paid his wages for the last four months (we have). It's not just FGR that have been let down badly by Bolton, but Christian too. Bolton's Chairman, Ken Anderson, made a lot of promises on the last day of the transfer window, both to Christian and FGR, and has kept none of them. This is all his work and from talking to Ken he feels immune from the consequences - but some of these promises are written in legally binding contracts, and we'll be pursuing them. When the dust settles, we'll talk to the EFL about how they regulate clubs like Bolton. They already regulate the club to a degree, controlling all TV monies to make sure that football debts get paid. Hard not to wonder whether the league could also have a role in approving the terms of any contracts entered into - to make sure that they are actually within the means of the club. We had no way to know, but the EFL should have the inside view on that. And finally (for now...) - Disappointing as it is to see this go pear shaped, both for FGR and Christian, I'm also excited by the prospect of the second half of the season with Christian back with us. I'm sure all FGR fans everywhere will join me in welcoming him back
First time poster, so hi to all. This type of post does make me chuckle. Everyone is entitled to their opinion so there is no right or wrong. For what it’s worth, I would love to see Johnson succeed. He genuinely loves the club and would like nothing more than be the one to take us to the promised land. LJ also has lansdowns full support clearly. If he was going to be sacked it would have happened a bloody long time ago. Because of this, whether you want him in or out, it’s not really worth making a big issue of it cos I can’t see him going anywhere. At the end of the day, we’re all city fans and we love it when we win and hurt when we lose. This season was always going to be a kind of win a couple, lose a couple sort of year so don’t be upset that we ain’t top of the league, or be thrilled that we are (so far) looking safe from relegation. Support the team. Get behind whoever is on the pitch and whoever is in charge. Yes, have your opinions and feel free to share them but during the games, we just need to share our love for the mighty BCFC. One day, it might all click into place you know!
