It seems Bournemouth, Rotherham and Luton are not to be the only League Two clubs to slip into administration.
According to the Chester City Vital Football website ‘Press reports published today suggest that the Football League are closely monitoring the ongoing problems at the Deva Stadium and the possibility of the club entering financial administration appears to loom larger with each passing day.’
This is something that we wouldn’t wish on any football club, because as always its the fans who suffer. However, do you think we care? Of course not. On an obviously selfish note, the prospect of another team getting deducted 10 points is great. This immediately makes Cherries survival chances just that little more likely.
Two teams have to go down and if the 2008/09 League Two season had started on a level footing Barnet and Grimsby would be staring Conference football in the face. Chester and Accrington would be struggling and Bournemouth, Rotherham and Luton would be in a far more realistic position.
In an almost sadistic twist of fate Chester should be thankful that the Cherries and Luton are still propping up the table. Without our misfortune their imminent misfortune would be far worse.
