Such a sad day for football, the men at the top HAVE to learn from this! I hope Chester fans you can come back and go from strength to strength after.

It is sad when a club gets booted out of a league, usually club gets wound up before that. For the real chester faithful you must be somewhat gutted, if not worse. Whilst it could be considered unfair to blame a single person for the club's demise, let's just say i do not believe Mr Vaughan Snr has run the club properly whenever he has owned it or been directly/indirectly involved. I think he has a lot to answer for. However, i am also positive that the hardcore fans in the city will drum up the plans for a pheonix club to turn up like FC Liverpool and FC United of Manchester did out of the frustrations of their previous situations. To the chester fans i wish you good luck and hope to at least hear about a new club thats key to its roots in the next year.AFC Wimbledon have shown you can push up the leagues given good staff and time.
I'd just like pass on my sympathies and wish you the best of luck for the future.As a Wolves fan, I grew up with the fear that my club would be liquidated, but thankfully we lucky enough to find a rich old Wolves fan who was happy to spend his personal fortune on the club. Football really cannot rely on those kind of people, and given the amount certain players and managers earn, it beggars beleif that a club can go to the wall over (by comparison) a small amount of moneyA really sad day for football, and most especially for the fans
Sure is a sad day for Chester City & real football fans everywhere, my club Bristol City almost died back in 1982, we came within two minutes of going out of existence, we where that close. My sympathies to all Chester City fans.
Viva la Deva!You will be back Chester City.
Back in turmoil.

A great shame. Chester City should not and hopefully will not go out of existance. Good luck to you City Fans United. All the best from Sweden.
My commiserations to all Chester fans from a Stockport fan who's lived in Chester for 8 years.Our club is also on the brink and it's sickening for the like of County and Chester fans to see all the support from the authorities and media coverage given to Pompey while clubs like ours are left to go under.I hope the new club can work its way back up the leagues quickly, I'll have a drink to the memory of CCFC tonight

Chester HatterOur club is also on the brink and it's sickening for the like of County and Chester fans to see all the support from the authorities and media coverage given to Pompey while clubs like ours are left to go under.As a Pompey fan living in Oxford, I've seen enough grief overtake both clubs due to greedy businessmen, NOT fans and supporters. Please don't blame us for the media coverage. They didn't want to know about Pompey before this and when the dust settles they'll forget us.I'm really sorry to see what has happened to Chester. No true supporter whould want to see any team go under, even Southampton)! We'd rather beat them honourably and deserve our position.Keep up the faith and you'll be back and I'll look forward to seeing you progress up the leagues.As a thought, if Pompey can get it in the neck for trying to live the dream and mix it with the big boys. What will the Premier league do if Man U or any of the others get their debts called in. Man U were debt free untill the Glasers moved in and saddled them with £500M debts, and there are others in the same boat.Sanity and love of the game flew out of the window when the business men / parasites flew in.All the best Chester, you don't deserve what happened to you and you'll be back stronger than ever.

I think it is particularly disgraceful that Chester have been liquidated for the (relatively small) amount owed to HMRC, espeicially considering the Portmouth owe some 400 times that amount and have been allowed to enter administration, basically meaning that there is little chance of the HMRC being paid back once all the other football 'business interests' have been paid.How has this been allowed to happen?
