No. of Clubs

Posted on February 13, 2012

I’m sometimes asked for a magic number – the number of top clubs which have gone into Administration.  It’s difficult give a simple answer because: Administration is a misleading basis for counting.  Clubs can be wound up without ever going into Administration.  A better measure is ‘insolvency event’, a term which can however be defined […]

2011 – The Year in Insolvency Events

Posted on December 31, 2011

Below is a round-up of the insolvency events I have logged during 2011.  The definition of insolvency event is a debatable one, and I prefer a descriptive rather than prescriptive one.  Broadly I would define an insolvency event as one which reflects a discontinuity in the operation of the ‘club as company’ caused by insufficient […]

HMRC’s Christmas party

Posted on December 20, 2010

I’m guessing that there will be dancing in the corridors at HMRC’s office party this Christmas.  They’ve had a good run in the courts over the last month against various football clubs.  So far this run has not included a single outcome of the club going into Administration (the last case was Dundee in October; […]

Jack Frost and the threat to club finances

Posted on December 9, 2010

Last Saturday’s football programme was considerably more than decimated (1, and then follow the ‘see also’ too), at least to a language purist.  Although the Premier League and Championship programmes were largely maintained, very little football was played lower in the pyramid.  The impact of this financially should not be underestimated. Even though games will […]
