The Premier League made its long-awaited comeback on Wednesday after three months of break due to Covid19 global pandemic. The first match saw Aston Villa play out a controversial 0-0 draw with Sheffield United at Villa Park. It only took 41 minutes before the first controversy broke out.

At kick-off, all players took a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. When play got underway, it was Sheffield United who looked to take control of proceedings early on. They dominated possession. It didn’t last long as it was Aston Villa who created the first notable opportunity. Dean Henderson was able to deal with Conor Hourihane’s effort.


Bury FC were expelled from the English Football League in August 2019, leaving the decades long loyal fans and new ones stranded on Saturday with no team to support. Many of whom have declared that seeing other teams play on Saturday has been a source of sorrow to them, they truly miss their beloved club.

The inability to provide sufficient financial ability was the reason that got the club expelled by the football league. The EFL required proof from the club that it could get the funding it needed to sort out its debts and that it would have enough money to be able to make it through the League One season.

Fans Fight on for Bury FC

Fans at Bury Football Club wish to see the club back on the EFL membership and that is what they are fighting for. The club is 125 years old and has been a member of EFL for that long. They put in a bid to be readmitted in League Two in the EFL meeting that was held at the end of August 2019. However, their bid was lost since they have not played a single game in the season of 2019 to 2020.

The club has several issues to overcome all that could have been solved if strong management had taken over. For instance, they are facing unpaid debts and legal action for the same had been brought on the club by HM Revenue body. Supporters, however, are reaching out to the public to gather support from a more humane point of view. The number of players, students and others who have long been associated with the team are the faces that are being put up to showcase what goes beyond mere numbers and legalities and the rich history of the association that can be difficult to put down if the club does not exist.


Bury are closing in on the appointment of former Everton forward Paul Wilkinson according to reports from England. The troubled club have been in search of a manager head of the season but have been rejected by several managers to their uncertain financial situation.

The League One outfit are in a major financial mess with the club facing a winding-up petition from the tax authorities in England.  It is understood that Bury had contacted former Oldham manager Frankie Bunn but failed to make an agreement with him before turning to Wilkinson.


Bury have continued to confound expectations as the League two 2nd placed team have continued their brilliant run of form. Bury are yet to lose in the League in 2019 and recently defeated Stevenage away 1-0 to keep their title challenge on track.

Sitting five points behind Lincoln City Bury have no chances of a slip-up with nine games remaining in the season.  In their last game against Stevenage, the players had to contend with the physicality displayed by their opponents which was evident from the opposition manager match notes.


Bury showed character once again for the third consecutive time in the Sky Bet League One as they completed a comeback against Forest Green Rovers, after falling behind in the first half of the game.

Striker Reece James grabbed the equalizer late on in the second half before Nicky Maynard snatched all three points for Bury. Forest Green manager Mark Cooper felt his team should have won the game, saying that he feels ‘robbed’.
