It was first reported last week, but today the final I’s were dotted and the final T’s crossed as the Premier League announced that Charlie Adam has won his dispute with BFC over unpaid bonuses.

However, the Premier League also ruled that the club’s failure to pay the bonus did not constitute a repudiatory breach of his contract, and as such, Adam is not free to leave the Seasiders on a free transfer by terminating his contract.

As such, the club’s outlook is that the result is very much a draw, but it is Vital’s understanding that Charlie had no wish to tear up his contract; he just wanted the money that he was owed, and furthermore wanted to ensure that his fellow teammates also get the money they are owed (the decision affects several other players, including the likes of Stephen Crainey).

This latest episode is just the latest in a long line of off the field cock ups by BFC, many of which can be laid squarely at the feet of chairman Karl Oyston.

Whilst The Gazette have moved to assure people that the relationship between the chairman and the players is good, there’s no doubt that this incident has placed a strain on their working relationship, and as such, it is my belief that Karl Oyston’s position as chairman is untenable and that he should resign (again).
