Guardian reporting that the admins are losing optimism and being wound up is becoming likely.

Say your prayers tonight lads

That's all beginning to desperate. I'd show some sympathy but ...

 

 

... its Wigan. So fuck em.

The EFL should issue a statement to say: "We deny Wigan Athletic permission to start the season. What is more we acknowledge and apologise for the mistake of our predecessors in opening the door to th

Turns out they owe £3.1415926535

In that Guardian article it's mentioned about it being difficult to sell a lower league club so close to Manchester United/City.

Looks like we got bought at just the right time... touch wood.

Lots of arguing now on LS between the fans and lots of bile and vitriol aimed at the administrators. 

The thing is, there isn't a credible buyer and that isn't the fault of the administrators. 

Slept like a baby last night!

Whilst I'd love them to go pop

Part of me just wants them to do a Bury. Disappearing altogether means their fans get off lightly, and can al go back to supporting Liverpool and Everton like they did as kids.

Much better if they end up where Bury are then they have to watch them playing Aspull Shitkickers FC for the next million years.

They would still go back to supporting Liverpool and Everton though.

Granted there would be handful of supporters who went with the lower league option. 100-200 maybe. Certainly no more than 50%.

Make your mind up! First you say not many would continue supporting, then you say 100-200...

So all of them!

Aye, the administrators have done a decent job from what I can see (sold stuff off and kept the place going) 

At the end of the day the asking price is £4m which seems reasonable really for a football club and Stadium 

If nobody is willing to stump up £4m then it’s not the admins fault is it

Always worth a read through their thread on BWFC’s woes. 
 

The parallels are amazing but now, as the stuff they wished upon us seem to be acting against them, they still don’t get why they’re so disliked by us.

theyre not really worth my dislike, theyve got their fair share of knobhead fans yes, but my hatred is the Salford lot

Theres a Wanderers fan on that Latics Speyk who goes by the username Warren Buffet.He’s continually giving them words of comfort & sympathy. Most of the Wigginers ignore him most of the time. I hope they don’t think all Wanderers fans are as sympathetic towards their heavenly plight.

Tomski, if you’ve ever worked in Wigan you’ll know that Liverpool and Everton are the darling teams of the Wiganese folk. 
I reckon 30% of firemen at Wigan and Hindley were scousers who managed to escape far enough to no longer be Liverpool City.

Cheers for posting this Mickey, so enjoyed reading it. I don't recall us ever doing anything to them to warrant such venom, whereas we have a legitimate excuse.

Most Wigan glands I know say Liverpool are their “main” team.

Its like standing in a turd only to realise you’re barefoot.

I have done but as stated Liverpool and Everton don’t bother me. Plenty will support the rags as it’s not in Manchester! Which tends to be the only qualifier.

I read a few posts on Latics Speyk a few weeks back and noticed that when they were discussing what they would do if Latics went pop, there was little mention of setting up a phoenix club, sounded like most of their fans would just give up or support another team.

Someone even set up a thread called "Does the town deserve a football team?"

Liverpool and Everton never appear on my list of clubs to dislike either. ManU just because ManU and City because I get sick of walking around town (Bolton or Bury) or around a shopping malls and where you once saw every other overweight 50+ year old with a ManU top on it seems to have changed to Cideh. I think the only other teams I dislike are Tranmere and Wigan.

Post at the top of this page is an odd one... Look like they're nowhere near getting a buyer. Mind, I still think they'll find someone considering they just signed a player today, admins must have hope that someone will complete.

Considering how Wigan fans were all slagging us off for starting last season in admin and getting "preferential treatment," they're not exactly getting rinsed by the EFL who have accommodated them so far. Could have easily prevented them from starting the season.

Funny too how they think we deserve to be in this position because we "lived beyond our means" because of ED's money and Ken not paying people but somehow those same things don't apply to Wigan even though it's the exact same situation but with Dave Whelan and Stanley Choi.

I think it's possible to over analyse. You'd imagine they can't see the double standard as a result of loyalty to the club. However these people are from Wigan. It's very simple. These people are exceptionally thick.
