Christopher Park? Think that’s up for grabs as well. 

Now sold; story on the streets is that the players have been told to bring jumpers and meet at Moss Bank park for the next training session

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

Ie the price is OK if they get the proceeds of the player sales

I think theyre actually fucked

Krasner in my opinion stretching the truth since day one, first 50 interested parties, now 4 I’m saying it’s bollocks. Only the US, French in town and now Nixon saying that the transfer not going well with one potential bidder that’ll be the aforementioned. Pop looking inevitable.

The EFL need proof of funding off any new bidder for 2 seasons approx £4m. The administrators want £3 million for the stadia and they still have creditors to pay. In the meantime the playing squad is being significantly weakened. They don't have a buyer with an emotional attachment as far as I know just hard headed business people sniffing around.

They're looking doomed to me. Would Wigan council step in I wonder?

4m? They lose 10m a year currently. Even after wage bill cuts they will still lose minimum 5m taking into account a drop in revenue so I reckon your 4 is actually 10

I'm going off the admins saying £1.9 - £2.2m per season to run the club. I hope you're right though.

The "funny" thing about all this is when we went down this route, we saw it coming a mile off, was a long drawn out process that lasted for what seemed like months / years since ED bailed

Wigan didn't see this coming and in the space of 2 months have gone from mid table championship team to the brink with little hope

Anyone fancy a photo shoot outside the DW?

Has anyone seen the article about Wigan on Ch4 news tonight. They interviewed Bury fans watching them play Daisy Hill last night and asked them about Wigan. Their response was we wouldn't wish this on anyone, except Bolton.

Aye they loved a sing-a-long about us when they played each other, a proper pair of tin-pots!

If there's ever another time Bury need their seats cleaning, I might go along but take a dump on one.

Obviously forgot about when they were outside the reebok begging us for money with there buckets . May be Wigan will be around first home game we’re allowed in  to do the same 😀

Can't see this being tied up and completed by 31st August. Best Wigan can hope for is someone to go exclusive by that date and then maybe just maybe they'll start the season with new owners.

Although Covid has undoubtedly made the sale process more difficult, if they do get sold, they at least have until October 5th to sign players. Not sure what the rest of their current players are on a week but surely Garner, Morsy and others will have to take a pay-cut or leave the club.

Would love to have my picture taken outside the DW waving my big widgie around while eating jelly & ice cream. But, as we've seen, these things tend to come back and bite you on the arse.
