The Fiver didn’t get where it is today sifting through the flotsam and jetsom of the early stages of an international week in which nothing has actually happened yet looking for something – anything – from which to fashion comedy gold. And on a day when the only news of note concerns one of the most famous clubs in English football facing the very real possibility of going into administration within 24 hours, you can’t help but feel yuks and giggles are going to be rather thin on the ground. It was revealed on Tuesday that a proposed takeover of the grand old club that is Bolton Wanderers by a consortium from Cheshire will no longer go ahead and the club is facing a winding-up petition in the high court on Wednesday. This desperate news for Trotters fans comes just a few days after the club got demolished by their nearest rivals Wigan in what locals refer to as t’classico, leaving them eight from safety at the bottom of the Championship with a team that barely looks capable or bothered enough to compete in the tier below.
