There was vertainly a voncetyed efgort too cut out the Barrow's & Workington's due to their geography. Imagine Southend, Colchester etc. having to venture there.

It was always the bottom 4 who were voted on, not simply the bottom 1.

Back in the day I could never see how Crewe were always re-elected. I guess they were less inconvenient.

there must be a "concerted effort" to keep qwerty keyboards as the norm , even in the age of virtual keyboards were the 'arms' of a typewriter are not phsyical anymore. 

took me ages to find an 'abcd' one for my samsung phone, but emoijis have their own section. 

i think they are making up shit to keep the Admin going forever , i thought you could only be in it for 12months now before another 12 points gets taken. think even bury had to renew theirs.

its sus . when we were doing last minute get outs, it were 10 minutes before a winding up court. they just give out another rumour and it seems like everyone nods their heads 'ok'. no deadlines or new court dates or nowt.

We owed millions though ( including HMRC) Wigan don’t. We were failing to pay players, Wigan aren’t and finally, we were failing to play fixtures and Wigan haven’t. As much as i’d like to see them go pop, their situation isn’t as dire as ours was as far as the EFL are concerned

Maybe not just yet but the clock is ticking  

The Wigan Admns have sold a training ground a chip shop and a host of players to generate enough cash to keep the club going - and they have also publicly stated they can keep the club going until the end of the season.

We had at least one willing and passionate prospective purchaser waiting to buy BWFC at the earliest opportunity

Wigan dont appear to have anyone interested other than a series of opportunists that register an interest and then melt away as quickly as they came. 

When you look at the way Wigan is being touted worldwide as an Investment opportunity , how their fans must  envy clubs like ours that  have at least one committed supporter amongst their owners 

Reality is for them - beggars cant be choosers

Precisely, if no one buys them they can’t come out of admin and that means they won’t be starting next season in the football league.

If I'm up to date, they need

£3m to clear the immediate debt.

2 × £2m for running costs for two years

£1m and running to pay the Administrators

Whatever this years additional debts, including to the taxman totals to. Say another £1m.

Say £9m.

All easy enough for a Championship club, even one with naff-all fans.

BUT

They arent a Championship club. They're currently bottom of the 3rd tier.

They've sold the training ground.

Don't own their stadium.

Have had fire-sales of their Chamionship level players.

On their 3rd management team of the season.

Lost their academy coaching team.

Had a series of tyre-kickers look at them. One looked likely until they walked away when they realisrd the sum owed and the reducing assets. 

A stunningly inept set of Administrators.

 

What should have been easy & quite cheap to settle has reduced in value by the day.

They can't crash the club into Administration and take the points hit coz they're already there. They can't go into yet another new season in Administration (surely ??).

tbf it's a miracle they're still functioning.

I fear someone will come in & keep them going.if not ... boo-hoo-hoo. If so, at a nicely reduced level.

If i’m honest i’d probably prefer them to survive for now, but in the lower reaches bottom tier with fuck all fans, fuck all money and no decent players. In other words, i just want them to suffer.

The other option wiggin have is someone buys them for £1.5m rather than the £3m and pay pennies in the pound to those the are owed money. EFL rules mean if they do that they get docked a further 15 points.

few wigginers are worried that new owners may wait to see what the league looks like in a few weeks and buy at the lower price and take the points hit.

Apologies, that is the case. However, there's a very definite window to do that. One we could have exploited but Bassini was poncing about & meant we missed it & so were relegated AND took points the following season.

However, & others may know better, I'm pretty sure you can't do that two years running.

Even if you can , if the finish in a relegation spot anyway the points deduction is carried fwad to next season. Plus they will have an embargo for at least two more years.

Oh well,  shame i missed out on the £180mill Eurolottery last week.  I could've nipped down to Robin Park smirking at everyone, knowingly. 

I may even have knocked on the door of the stadium to flick them a couple of fingers.

did you hear about the young couple who have the same numbers every week, put lottery on by dd , got all 7 numbers , but didn't have the funds in their account ,so ticket not bought on line.

i'd be suicidal

Latest admins update :

Buyer from Bahrain gone 'quiet'

Not heard anything  from rumoured Aussi bid. 

Anyone with 7 million quid to spare is welcome to phone them !

tick tock.

Those admin updates are taking on the flavour of "A note from the Chairman". Do any of the administrators wear tank-tops? 

The clock is running down.

Simples, just get relegated then.
