It’s been 13 days since Laurence Bassini reportedly agreed a deal to buy Ken Anderson’s shares in Bolton Wanderers.

Almost a fortnight on and we seem to be going round in circles.

Bassini has still not officially taken ownership of the club but is believed to be seeking ratification from the EFL today.

However, while the much-publicised war of words between Bassini and supposedly outgoing chairman Ken Anderson continued over the weekend, Bolton’s players left the club in the lurch by refusing to play until they are finally paid wages which are now over a month late.

The shambolic handling of Bolton Wanderers in recent months has been painful to watch.

The club has been heading, in slow-motion, for a car crash since last summer when players went on strike then for bonuses not being paid.

Now, almost a full season later and the football club is on the verge of complete collapse and is failing to uphold its single biggest commitment, playing football matches.

What the club needs to ensure its survival, at least for the next few months, is for either Ken Anderson or Laurence Bassini to stop bickering amongst themselves and for one of them to put their money where their mouth is and save our great club.

Are we going to be lucky enough to get that? As things stand it’s not looking promising.
