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

But you have got to fund the losses for two years ( say £5 million ) as well 

and If what Krasner is saying as of yesterday is correct regarding this "bond" a prospective buyer needs to provide -  not sure he is , then you need a further  £5 million sat in a designated bank account with the EFL as well 

That could be a game changer

Aye 

Plenty in that boat though 

I imagine we are losing significant sums each season in the 4th tier, especially as we haven’t played a game since March

Watched the video & although Krasner is one dull bleeder he does seem fairly genuine as against a shiny suited salesman.I think they will find a buyer not a million miles different from our own FV model.

Stumping up 5 million into the EFL monitored bank account might be a stumbling block but I reckon they will survive .Hopefully they will be humbled in the process but I doubt it.

ps Did Krasner say that he will look for Wigan’s future results along with Leeds & Bolton’s ? or is my hearing going as well as my eyesight .

And the Palios reference was strange to say the least.

Aye Bournemouth makes sense if I go to spec savers I can get my ears sorted at the same time as my eyes.

Thinking about the Palios remark didn’t he once work for Chelsea ? 
Tapping up Wigan’s coach as an old boy favour ?

Nixon saying the bidders want to drop their offer to £2 million because they sold Lowe and Kipre but the admins want the full amount.

 

Why would the price go down because they sold 2 players? The club is being thrown in free as part of the buy a stadium and training ground promotion the admins are running. Would they have been willing to pay an extra £5 million if the players were still there?

Apparently (according to Nixon) they offered £3.5 million, when Wigan sold those 2 players for almost £2 million the buyers saw it as £2 million in cash so aren't willing to pay full whack as this money would mean Wigan are getting £5.5 million

They will get £2 million +  from Leneghan/ council  for the stadium alone 

Admins bottom line will be break up value of the property assets

But they also dont have to pay 2 relatively expensive contracts, I thought that was part of anyone's plan, to get the wage bill down.

They wouldnt be paying em for more than a week

Then they get the sale proceeds

Its like buying a house fully furnished, then being told all the furniture has been sold
