The "Flushing of the turd" analogy used by many on this thread  seems to have been picked up by Lisa Nandy given the latest headline in the Wigan news 

We need to 'unblock' this Wigan Athletic mess now, urges Lisa Nandy

"Lisa Nandy" and "Turd" in the same sentence. It's happened before & doubtless will again.

Her solution to all this is to make it a "people's club", run by the fans, for the fans. Well, those may make interesting headlines, but they're bullshit.

It's guarenteed to make whatever survives a basket case and they'd be lucky to stay alive in the Conference. (Which, don't get me wrong, would be a good thing ... if they have to survive at all).

Its a long hard bleak winter ahead in Wigan. The prospect of being marooned at the bottom of League one matched only by the fact that the Spanish saviours whose appearance made them do nasty things in to their Lonsdales have proved not quite to be the real deal. 

The whole thing was always built on quicksand. Broken-leg funded the lot from the late 90s. Once he'd gone they needed someone similar and the one they thought they'd found proved not to give a fuck about Wigan once push came to shove. 

The whole set up is hot air, piss and wind. This is the epitome of a tinpot football club and the plunge back to that reality has been a very pleasant distraction in this difficult year of 2020.

When the financial and ownership trouble hit us what was left in the end was a proper football club with a fanbase and a pedigree of tier 1 and 2 football. We attracted responsible owners who wanted to build on that foundation with a sustainable and sensible plan. What's left at Wigan? Non-league foundations and lower league scrapings. Rotten, tinpot, nothingness.

I don't remember any other team in admin being given so much time to get a deal done.

Pretty sure some have

I'd guess either or both Luton and Coventry

So long as they have funds, they should be allowed to continue

Sadly

The Spaniard's latest message to the fans is 'we will buy the club even if it's in league 2 ' Obviously the admins see them as offering the best deal for them & the creditors whereas the EFL have different criteria that isn't being met .Almost a perfect storm for continued stalemate.

The admins did say something about 'getting through to Dec 31st' maybe trying to pressure the EFL to approve the takeover.

How much do us lower league clubs get in grants from this deal? 

 

Drip, drip, drip... 

How embarrassing is that?

Not at all. A temporary blip. Founder members of the football league will rise again.

Playoff places in The Championship; the odd trip to Wembley but failing to reach the so call 'promised land' would suit me nicely.
