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

that jeff is wrong poster on there. sums up the deluded little scrotes. Apparently our situation nothing like ours because we over spent and they were a well run club until God unleashed this thunderbolt.

No mention of them losing 8m a year. No mention of their wage bill to income ratio. Just for you Jeff and your ilk, Jelly & Ice Cream waiting. Div 2 with a future trumps no future at all. Bye!

Sheff Wednesday bigger club than Leeds. Don’t really get the glamour in leeds, stadiums shit, the team also been shit for most of last 40 years in fact only the revie era was decent sustained period in their whole history.

I agree. The fans think they are big. And the longer and louder you keep shouting it the more they, and other people, will believe it. Leeds history on winning things that matter is nothing to crow about. Especially if you claim to be a big club.

When I was teenager, Leeds were always the bridesmaid, missed out on more trophies than pickles the dog.

Really weird reading that Wiggin forum.

If you go back to posts from around 12 months ago, they were fucking loving our time in the shit and they were so  smug that it would never happen to them because " We are such a well run club" as they loved saying.

Funny how things have turned out eh?

Fuck 'em.

 Spoke to a realistic Wigan fan this week who said, ‘We won’t be seeing the championship for a long time’.

Followed it with, ‘Are you looking forward  to Harrogate away.’ Cunt....

I reminded him that the 5 people allegedly interested in the club  will be bystanders or asset strippers as no other fucker in this financial climate would show interest.....

Harrogate will be your new norm sunshine if you’re lucky 😉

Feeling smug for the 1st time in many a year.......

And amazing how, in their minds, they can seperate their dodgy owners from the club and see them as two separate entities with the club being blameless and shouldn't be punished for the owners sins. At the same time while they reference Anderson and Bassini's shenanigans it's still 'Horwich Wanderers' who are to blame.

They've really shown themselves to be a load of thick two hats almost to a man.

Became clear to me at Walmsleys apprentice school down Union Road. Who else would use the term 'moggy' for a mouse?

He sounded really bitter towards us and wanted us liquidated. I haven't noticed any recent posts from him in their own current predicament though.

Funny how quickly fortunes can change in football. 12 months ago, they fancied themselves as play off dark horses for the prem, we just wanted to survive.

The sensible ones of their fans would now swap places with us. Come out the worst of it and decent owners (hopefully). Surely bottomed out for us. im not saying next season will be easy but looking at the squad, I expect top 3

I've not felt this optimistic since the buoyant prem years. The feelgood factor is back, you can see it on the forums and twitter. No doubt IE  has set his stall out for attractive promotion winning football and I can't wait.

So if we go of town/city size, population and other clubs in the catchment area, who would we say get really decent crowds?

Norwich do for a small city even though there is not much other competition in that area.

If you drew the same large diameter circle around a coastal town that you do around an inland town or city as your catchment area half of your catchment would be fish.

I've not said much on Wigan's impending demise, as I've been too busy laughing at them. Hopefully, their local derby in the 2021-22 season will be against AFC Bury in the North West Counties League as a phoenix club.

Salary cap doesn’t really affect us hugely does it. More about dragging other clubs in line with our limitations. Doubt the impact at this level would be huge anyway as there aren’t many who generate decent revenue and spend huge amounts. If/when we do get promoted the cap will level the playing field far better in L1
