    Wally Amos

    Probably no more than you already know James. Walter Robert "Wally" Amos (1899–1967) was a footballer who played in the Football League for Bury from 1923 to 1934. He is Bury's third-highest goalscorer in the Football League with 122 from 455 appearances. He played outside left. He was born in Grimsby and died in Haslingden. Oh, and he was featured on a cigarette card series of 'Famous Footballers' by the British American Tobacco Co. Also more info here, plus more ciggy card pics: http://www.doingthe92.com/display_player.asp?step=61&ID=73&pid=46813&ptag=Wally_Amos
  4. To be fair there were plenty of people, many of whom were extremely vocal on here, who thought SD1 was doing a fantastic job and the sun shone out of his backside. Let's hope the new regime proves to be honourable and trustworthy.
  5. Agree with Les Hart but I think Ryan probably has some way to go yet before he is immortalised by having his face in the seats. He's been a great player but so have many others. As a manager he still has a long way to go - and what if, dread the thought, he fails next season and gets the sack? I think Nev (we already have the Nev Nev stand) or Stan would be more appropriate at the moment, although I truly think Ryan's time will come - I just don't know whether he will still be at Bury when that happens.

    Agree Andy, well worth watching. All pigs are equal but some are more equal than others .........

    Scholes down at Gigg

    I've always thought that this is the wrong way round. It would make far more sense to keep the home fans in for 5 minutes and for the police to shepherd the away fans out of the area. I speak from bitter experience, having been kept in as an away fan many times in my younger days. It just allows the home hooligans to lie in wait a few streets out and then anyone coming out of the ground late is easily identified as an away supporter

    Judge Dismisses windup order on Bury

    Old news. Somebody at Sports Media Gaming is obviously very bitter and twisted as to how he was treated by Stewie and won't acknowledge that the ship has a new captain who is trying to steer a path through the icebergs that Stewie left behind. The grievance he is spouting on about was settled in full in July 2018.

    Judge Dismisses windup order on Bury

    Heard from Vera down at Tescos - no, sorry, I couldn't resist, I actually heard this from a source that I trust - that SD2 has actually put £3m cash into Bury FC. I asked incredulously - as you are all no doubt thinking - why the hell would he want to do that, is the man mad? I got the following answer: The club was in such a bad state with no assets or cash that if any of the CCJs progressed to WUPs - we know at least one was in the offing - and ultimately to WUOs, the club would have bypassed administration and gone straight into liquidation. The club had no credibility and no means of negotiating any payment plans with any of the creditors, so SD2 took the decision to put £3m cash into the club in exchange for shares (which are all but worthless) so that there was some cashflow and the club could at least begin dialogue with debtors re payment plans. I was also told that he wanted to move quickly on the 99 year lease for Carrington so that any plans put forward for Carrington would have credibility with the banks and any other businesses he might be wanting to get involved in the venture. All sounds feasible, I still think he's mad though if this is true.

    LEON

    Have to disagree there. Leon was a grafter for Bury and scored goals in a poor team with poor support, he would have a field day with the support of this present team. Shows the level of the man that he scored one and assisted another on his debut for Wigan on Saturday. We're just fortunate that we don't actually need him at present.
