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

Wigan can’t say , founder members ,they can’t say first ever goal scored, they can’t say first ever Wembley winners ,with a record crowd ,famous white horse final to boot . They can’t say top flight f

Can you all fuck off posting on this thread UNLESS they've gone pop please? Keep opening it with a little twinge and it's some cunt going on about being a bit cowd 50 bastard years ago!!

Marc Iles and Nixon were never convinced that Bassini and Ken were working together but what do they know?

Au Yeung also seems a bit of a stooge from Choi.

Not sure if anyone's been keeping up with the Charlton saga too but they've got some multi-millionare called Thomas Sandgaard interested in buying the club. He's openly courting them (a bit like Bassini with us) saying that they should be a Premier League club and going to Europe, promising the world. Not saying Sandgaard a stooge but he seems to be doing more talking to fans than he is keeping counsel and working on a deal. Maybe I've lost my trust in football businesspeople but it's a bit "too good to be true".

Also their "current" owner Paul Elliot was sold the club by Tahoon Nimer.

Tahoon Nimer was working with Matt Southall when they bought Charlton.

And Matt Southall was pictured with Bassini at the Reebok when we were being sold. Very dodgy indeed.

I was thinking that maybe Sandgaard is a stooge to just keep Charlton fans "happy" while they continue to asset strip the club or whatever they're doing.

I mean I thought the Bolton stuff was a nightmare but Charlton's is just as complicated if not more so.

 

Anyway this isn't Wigan related, more general takeover and dodgy football ownership, but if you want to read more then

https://forum.charltonlife.com/discussion/88474/latest-ownership-shenanigans-bite-size-thread-26-08-parts-1-2-now-up

this thread explains in great detail everything that's happened since they were taken over by Nimer and Southall. 

Just think, that could have been us.

Feel sorry for Charlton, not so much Wigan.

I hope Charlton pull through. Similar to us in quite a few ways

Theyve been playing the going bust game on and off for 30 years

Did lose the valley though for a number of years. 

They were always in a higher division than us during that period so presumably they were paying higher wages.

Went watching them v Southend one season at Upton Park in a tier 2 match, must have been  4,000 Southend fans on but Charlton won

They did - and formed their own Political Party that stood to return to the Valley if my memory is correct 

If Football Clubs sat in the House of Commons Charlton would be on the extreme left - the militant tendency of the Football League

Im still not sure what the point is

500k is a drop in the ocean

While it might buy influence, it doesnt provide anywhere near enough to buy the club

Won’t even pay a fortnights wages for them this. It’s an impressive amount though to raise. 
 

how much did our ST con out of people,  I mean raise for the good of the club?

Jonathon Jackson former CEO 

Has £2 million available  - If supporters club can raise more he will go out looking to borrow remainder and would assume cut a deal with Lenaghan and Rugby club on the stadium 

And put a bid in 

That's how I read it ( Wigan today there are a couple of articles on his plans )

So JJ has 2

He wants this crowdfunder to match it

Then he tries to borrow some more?

He said he has £2 million  

He's not asked crowdfunder to match it - just raise an amount - which they set at £500k and which they will exceed 

He will then try and get a deal sorted to buy on lines of a community club with supporters representation etc

To be fair, they’ve done well to get to £450k in since a short period 

How much did our ST manage when they were raising funds? 

If the sale price is £4m then they have got 10% together in a few days, should get them a seat at the table you’d imagine 

They still need to sell players though to cover the losses, how many saleable players do they have left?

Well done to Latics fans for reaching their Crowdfunded target, whatever you think of them you can’t knock the job they’ve done in trying to save their club and they haven’t finished yet. I say good luck to them and I hope they get their takeover done shortly so they can concentrate on the season ahead.
