    It’s worth recalling that Gartside’s core strategy for the innovative Bolton business model was to create a Premiership II (innovatively missing the point of a luxury good) which would have shored up Bolton by making them unable to return to the cold, cold wastes of the Football league’s broadcasting contract.

    If Bolton Wanderers FC went bankrupt tomorrow, who would own the real estate at the Reebok and what is its value ? Davies didn’t make his fortune by giving it away, the debt will be secured by the property and land. Both Davies and Gartside have had good money out of. BWFC over the years, south for soft loans.

    His cunning plan also involved no relegation from PL2. A plan so popular, only one Chief Executive from the top two flights, (Derek Bowden, then at Ipswich) and he withdrew his support within days after pressure from the fans.

    PL 2 wouldn’t have solved our underlying issues, we were haemorrhaging money for the last 5 or so years of being in the PL even with all that TV money
