Brought in an uninspiring manager, made the crazy decision to let Bradley Dack and Cody McDonald go (Tom Eaves got a hat-trick against a spluttering Southend last week but that's 1 less than he got all of last season for Yeovil) and look to have carried on with their poor ending to the second half of last season (only Coventry and Chesterfield had worse last 23 games and they were relegated). Conceded most goals in League 1 last season (79).

Priestfield is no longer a fortress and with 4 to go down they look nailed on. Unless they show dramatic improvement the £20k will be able to cash out at the end of the month for a large profit (liquidity permitting).

Are Gillingham going into administration?  I think if someone has bet aggressively about £100k at around 1.3 they must be confident of them losing ground very quickly.

shrewdies don't risk 20 grand at 1.25 then wait 8 months to collect.

Gillingham did what they had to do. They ditched the manager at the end of September brought in a manager with a feel for the club and by mid-October were drawing with the likes of Wigan. They're now 1 loss in their last 11 league games but the results have been impossible to predict.
