From Simon Stone, bbc reporter

"Wigan Athletic remain in administration but the situation needs resolving quickly as EFL rules prevent them starting a second campaign without a buyer.
A consortium led by a Bahrain-based businessman is now the front runner but negotiations have slowed.
It seems paperwork has been submitted to the EFL, who are broadly supportive, but somewhere along the line there has been a hold-up and as each day passes without a resolution, the chances of it actually happening reduce.
Funding, apparently, is not the issue and this deal is seen as being more viable than the Spanish one that collapsed at Christmas.
But it is fair to say frustration is growing from all sides, which is not helping as the club battle to avoid relegation into League Two."

Doesn't fill you with optimism does it

 

Read the above on their latics speyk board...

Why would they change how they plan to negotiate the sale because the supporters didn't like the previous method?

Madness.

The supporters club seem to have considerable power at that club. It’s all very Mickey Mouse

Update from the administrators

https://www.wigantoday.net/sport/football/wigan-athletic-admin-delivers-takeover-update-3146049

Not much in there to engender optimism in the single brain cell rolling around inside the numb skull of your average "tic"

That almost says "yeah, you lot pissed & moaned when we gave the Spanish exclusive rights, so this time we didn't. Now you can see why we did ... you moaning fckg know-nowts."

I have to ask myself what kind of administrators change their model due to fan pressure?

I worked with a bloke for 12 months

He hated me cos I'd been given his job

Hes one of the ones at the statue

Hes watched em since non league

I'd like him to complete the circle but I'd not want em to die, cos he got me a beer in his daughters bar after the last wigan game

Nice as pie he was...football fans are alreet and don't deserve to lose their team

 

NB this post brought to you by a contented whites fan

That's where I'm at.

 

I know a couple of Wigan fans and they're sound.  Certainly not like the dicks we saw celebrating at Sir Nat's statue.

I wouldn't want them not to have a club to support, but I would like to see them support them at a level way, way down the football pyramid.

So not a lot of any value comes with the club?

I see now why it's only £3m to buy them.

Only £3m, it’s now become a lot of pennies considering they’ve no proper assets I’d say, then, I should imagine, they’ve got the job of paying the creditors and a year of Accountancy fees?    Only a lunatic would buy

The bitter fucker in me was so pleased  when they lost the euxton training ground, despite it going to nob end. Always felt like a kick in the bollocks, driving past it most days.
