Is that the best frontman the admin can wheel out? Stutter... stutter, piss poor answer to the question... stutter stutter, fucking clueless. 

On a sunday -yes 

To be fair the first two are no better 

Makes you wonder how they talked the EFL into letting them start the season

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

Seems to me Admin via Nixon trying to force the hand of the US/French group with these spurious interested parties from businesses not worth a light. 

The worst thing about this for them is that they have no Michael James or Eddie Davies. They have £600k raised by fans and that's the only money in all of this that's truly has Wiggin at heart.

Peg-leg is out of the picture and even if there's a takeover whose to say the next lot won't do what the last lot did upon discovering just what a dead-end of a football club it truly is. 

As each day passes the picture bleakens.

Not sure where else to post this, but am I the last one to realise that - in your WanderersWays Account settings, you can change your content view behaviour to "take me to comments I haven't read"?

So now I don't have to randomly click through the last few pages of threads and scroll up and down to find the last comment I read.

Does clicking the dot or star in the left column not take you straight to the first unread post? It does for me.

Yep. I hope this admins don’t play poker unless Wigan are the stakes obviously

I’m not convinced these lot will find a proper buyer. I’m unsure what that land could be used for other than football and egg chasing though?

I reckon a supporters take over and a drop in to non league within 2 years

My hopes have been up and down more often than a brides nightly with this saga. What's the underlying feeling?

 

Are they going to do a Bury?

 

Are they going to do a Bolton?

 

Are they going to do a Wigan (sort of a bit of each)?

They will do a Wigan Borough.

I’ve thought from day 1 that it’s unlikely they’ll find a buyer.

Must admit I’m surprised the EFL haven’t made any demands on the administrator finding a buyer. Surely with nothing certain even now, they should be initiating some kind of instruction. Either they are very confident there is a genuine buyer or they’re just keeping fingers crossed? Can’t make my mind up which.

It's bizarre what's currently happening. The season has started and yet the admins are still talking about interested buyers showing up at the door. It's as though the EFL have abandoned their Criteria for funding and they're blindly hoping something turns up soon.

 

EFL are making the rules up as they go along 

They gave Krasner permission for Wigan to start the season - Verbally 

That was wrong - should have set out basis for decision in writing for all to see 

On a separate note Barnsley seem to be having a few off the field issues https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8732425/Barnsley-hold-talks-EFL-clubs-shock-away-Oakwell.html

In fairness though, Generally player wages are relative to the revenue that they generate 

Obvious exemptions where clubs over spend 

If you dropped Macc in the PL they could give 25 players a contract of £100k a week and still break even 

The global viewing figures and advertising revenue generated on the back of it is incredible
