Not sure whether he wrote a lot of it off.

But yes, they were living behind their means when doing well under Allardyce.

As soon as he left the financial pressure on their position told.

Wrote off £175m, they'd have probably died years ago without it.

Amazing the stick Redknapp gets for overspending yet Allardyce is seen as some kind of footballing genius in those parts. Bet he got a few back handers back then.

In his defence I donít remember Bolton paying big fees. God only knows how they ran up such debts

Portsmouth with redknapp is a bit of a baffling case too. At at time they were struggling to pay the 10 million for Johnson they were selling him for almost treble that

Same guy that ran Watford a few years back and almost ruined them, seems to be a bit of a chancer

You have to feel for the staff at the club who, through no fault of their own, have been left without pay for the last 5 months. Whether you are on £100 a week or £100,000 a week,  being without pay for 5 months will cause you real hardship.

Am I right in thinking that we leant a fair amount of money to help some Bolton staff get paid?

Quite a number of clubs did, so hopefully the players are the only ones "going without" and hopefully the pfa can look after the ones who struggle

Bolton need to get in the bin though

They paid massive agent fees, sign-on bonuses and wages, IIRC.

Backhander heaven, the cynic in me says.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.
