A fair few clubs existence is hanging in the balance right now. I just hope FV are here for the long term at least to try and get the club running on a sound financial basis.

They are losing around £24m a year at the moment

It’s only a matter of time  before they pull the plug .This will be carnage in dingleland.

Can’t wait for the delusional twats to get their comeuppance.

A good article you've plucked out there.

Venkys made a pig's ear of it at Blackburn at first but they've stuck it out. Compare that with tank-top Ken and the bloke who took over Wigan. 

I still hope they get bored soon and drop the dingles in the shit. However I don't recall Blackburn fans being graceless towards BWFC this time last year. So they're in a slightly different category.

Incidentally some of Blackpool's fans were wishing us to go bust 12 months ago as well. Although as I recall - the club did offer some assistance to our staff when they weren't being paid. PNE and Everton seemed the strongest on that score.

To be fair, Blackburn, Burnley and Preston especially, were, on the whole, pretty sound when we were in the eye of our storm.

I'm sure plenty took the piss on their own sites but there were plenty offering moral support in the media.

Wigan and Tranmere though positively revelled in it, and it wasnt just a few of em, so fuck em.  I wouldn't wish what happened to us on anyone, apart from them 2.

They pull plug it’s gonna be worse than Wigan. 

Players wages are something like £22m yet turnover is £16m. Probably goes some way to explaining why Danny Graham has been released. Can’t imagine Stewart Downing being offered same terms for next season either.

The danger for them is relegation that’ll wipe 6-7 million off turnover and means venkys will need to dig deeper.

It was a nice gesture from PNE and Everton. I never liked Spurs much or any London club tbh but the way Spurs responded to Muamba when he collapsed on their pitch was first class. 

Was it really first class?  If you can clearly see there is someone dieing on a football pitch then the football doesn't matter. That was the only way to react in the situation.

Be further down the pecking order then.

Certainly could ruffle a few feathers all this.

Especially if they get taken over by the egg chasers.

I think to avoid relegation from the championship this season you just have to avoid a points deduction and finish above Wycombe and maybe Rotherham. Blackburn & PNE are safe, if they don’t go into admin.

Have you been to Wigan away in last ten years?

I’m amazed that anyone who has been to these games still doesn’t give a fuck about them. 

I tried my best to ignore them for years. And they tried so fucking hard to create a rivalry. They got one from me eventually. I fucking hate them more than any other club. 

I think geography comes into it with our fanbase. We have a big catchment area; being from the Chorley side I’ve never felt animosity towards Bury and I’ve never met a Bury fan.

Throughout high school there was a big Bolton/Blackburn divide. I’ve never cared as much for them since I left in 2005.

I cried my bastard eyes out the day after we got relegated at Chelsea. I was nine years old, in the first year of being a season ticket holder, surrounded by United fans in primary school. They were laughing about my team getting relegated, and I’ll bet they’ve still to this day never seen them live. 

Throughout all this, I couldn’t give a fuck about United now. Perhaps it’s different if you live somewhere like Walkden, but in the grand scheme they care about us as much as we care for Chorley.
I’d fucking love it if we had a red away kit. It’s part of our history, we’ve always had a red trim, we have a red rose on our badge, we’ve traditionally had a red away kit and I think it would look smart. 

I still only know one Wigan fan. A mate of my dad’s who’s harmless enough (although gave us the odd dig through our financial troubles). 

I fucking hate them. Throughout all the miserable away days at their place. All the gloating on Twitter. Putting a Wigan scarf on Lofty’s statue etc. I cannot resist milking this situation for all it’s worth.

Everyone entitled to their opinion. Personally i genuinely hope they go bust. Gone. No sympathy dont see them as a proper football club anyway. No history just a whelan vanity project and i hope hes not too far gone to witness their destruction.  Nasty horrible set of scruffy scrotes with an inferiority complex because they are inferior  and always will be.
