Davies-e ametiaja lõpuks oli kubi rahalistes raskustes. Tema järglane [[Eric Black]] ei suutnud enamat kui klubi liigatabeli viimases otsas hoida. Klubi rahalised mured päädisid 2002. aasta aprillis pankroti protsessi algatamisega. Black lahkus ametist ning tema asemele tuli [[Terry Butcher]]. Klubi pidi vallandama või vabaks laskma 19 mängijat ning asendama need noorukitega. Omanik Boyle pani klubi müüki.<ref>[http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/m/motherwell/1958230.stm "Motherwell axe 19 players"] BBC Sport, 29 April 2002</ref>
By the end of Davies' tenure the club were in financial trouble. [[Eric Black]] was briefly in charge with the club floating near the foot of the table before it was placed in [[administration (insolvency)|administration]] in April 2002 with losses approaching [[Pound sterling|GBP]] 2 million yearly.<ref>[http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/scotland/1948121.stm "Motherwell in turmoil"] BBC Sport, 24 April 2002</ref> Black resigned, and was replaced by [[Terry Butcher]]. The club's outlook remained bleak as they were forced to make redundant or release 19 players and replace them with younger players; Boyle also placed the club up for sale.<ref>[http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/m/motherwell/1958230.stm "Motherwell axe 19 players"] BBC Sport, 29 April 2002</ref> Relegation in [[2002–03 in Scottish football|2002–03]] – normally automatic following a last-place finish in the league – was avoided on a technicality, as First Division winners [[Falkirk F.C.|Falkirk]] lacked a stadium meeting Premier League regulations.<ref>[http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/f/falkirk/2931808.stm "Falkirk denied promotion"] BBC Sport, 23 May 2003</ref>
Relegatsioon madalamasse liigase jäi siiski toimumata ning seda puht tehnilistel põhjustel. Nimelt ei antud esimese divisioni võitnud Falkirk FC-le õigust kõrgliigas mängida kuna neil puudus määrustepärane mänguväljak.<ref>[http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/f/falkirk/2931808.stm "Falkirk denied promotion"] BBC Sport, 23 May 2003</ref>
 
Despite the lack of resources, a number of young talented players were found to play for the club; crucially, when many of these moved on, including [[Stephen Pearson]] and [[James McFadden]], they brought revenue in the form of transfer fees, and with John Boyle waiving the club's personal debt to him, its financial future was assured by the conclusion of the [[2004–05 in Scottish football|2004–05 season]] with the club's yearly losses falling to one of the lowest figures in the Premier League<ref>[http://worldsoccer.about.com/b/a/140198.htm "Scottish Soccer Clubs Still In Debt"] [[World Soccer Magazine|World Soccer]], 18 January 2005</ref> and the club coming out of administration in time to avoid a ten-point Premier League penalty which was being phased in for teams in administration.<ref>[http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/m/motherwell/3433979.stm "Motherwell plans still on course"] BBC Sport, 27 January 2004</ref> On the field, the club also managed to reach the [[2005 Scottish League Cup Final|
