AFC Bury are in the same division as Longridge Town and Charnock Richard............. wow, that is a tumble down the pyramid
It’ll be s long road back. Plenty of Phoenix clubs have stalled at National League North or South level. Some got up to the league but have since fallen out again. Halifax , Aldershot. The likes of Darlington, Chester, Scarborough, Hereford are still trying to get up the pyramid. Non League Football is a pretty decent standard these days, even at NWCL level.I guess Wimbledon are the example they are all trying to follow. I wish AFC Bury good luck though.They'll be back.
Wow that is some tumble!!
I'm not sure how these 'phoenix' clubs are allowed to manifest themselves but that does seem to be a heck of a lot lower level than some have re-appeared at.
I would be interested to know if anybody knows the reasons for this
Watched it on Thursday night.... it’s very good.This programme is well worth watching. Reminds us what football is really about:
That came out loud and clear during the documentary....
the lady who chained herself to the drainpipe outside Gigg Lane wasn’t for accepting the new club !!
When Bury finished the job against us at Gigg Lane back in mid 90's in the play offs the ensuing pitch invasion saw plenty of Man U shirts
No City shirts at the time as a bit of a laughing stock. Chelsea were crap too, as they had been for years.
Roman then got his hands on Sibneft, City became state owned and now form part of a "big six" who seemingly want to run English football. Funny old world.
This is so true. Big Picture was just a snapshot in time as to who were essentially the top six now. Arrogance beyond belief. Villa have also won the European Cup more than most of them too. And Forest have won it more than them!!The annoying thing about that, is that the big picture project was put forward by the “Top 6” which included City....
Aston Villa and Newcastle were not even consulted even though they have spent longer in the top flight than City.....
