The bastards better not continue their good form and finish 13+ points clear of relegation. That would be annoying.

I can see them winning 5 more games - Charlton, Hull, Barnsley, QPR and Fulham (saving themselves for play offs),  I still think they'll stop up, they are as good as any championship team on form since Jan.

Dunno, if i found out i might not be getting paid for my work, think it would affect my performance.

Some that are out of contract from today (no idea if there are any) might refuse to play given that the club probably cant keep them for next season anyway.

Are they? 

If they stay up and embargoed but no points deducted next season but a couple of other clubs go tits up early into next season they could be safe.

Doesn't bear thinking about!

Well Coventry and Rotherham arent going to be a massive hurdle for them to finish above, and it could be Wycombe or Fleetwood too.

If they stop up this season they'll probably stop up next season.  Suddenly I want to Huddersfield to win and I wanted them to go down a few hours ago.

A friend of a friend works for them, before lockdown he turned down a job at Preston. He said he handed in his notice and they pretty much said how much do you want to stay, that along with a big bonus and a company car was throw in. He snatched their hand off because it was relatively big money they said yes to.

Preston wasn’t offering more money it was just closer to home.

Wigan’s way of negotiation was straight in with money, that’s crazy

I felt sorry for the Bury fans even though they've had an axe to grind with us for years. I won't be feeling sorry for this shower of shit. They've been punching above their weight for years and now Whelan and his broken leg are history it's the slippery slope for the cunts. Bring it on. Sooner or later we will pass them on the way back up and there'll be a few reminders of the early 90s for them.

I used to work for him when I was a kid in his hotel, and at Springfield park on match days, in the boardroom, serving pies to the directors from the opposition at half time. There's not a chance he'll buy it back unless he can make some big cash out of it.

I also delivered his papers when I was 13 for a couple of years, never gave me a tip at xmas, the twat.

His son is an absolute loon - he was known as Whizzy Whelan in Parbold, total fruitcake, would do anything for a pint, and I mean anything. 

My cousin used to do that very same paper round out of McColls in Parbold. I did it with him a few times when staying over, must have been about 1996. I went to Parbold Douglas back then. 

On Wigan, got to be a few more Championship clubs teetering on the edge, big wage bills, little TV income and No matchday income. Crazy they have carried on. If a few more go then I can see the points deductions getting canned off given the exceptional circumstances

 It was a twat of a round. All big newspapers on a Sunday, all the houses miles apart.  I went to our ladys, the Catholic school, left in 84. I've got younger brothers and a sister, lived in Newburgh. In 1996 I was working for Whelan at wrightington Country club. It was an official Euro 96 Hotel. Russian and French squad both stayed there for a while. I took some of the Russian squad round standish when they got knocked out, Dobrovolski was a laugh. The French squad smoked like troopers, not always tobacco.
