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

Turns out they owe £3.1415926535

Its a joke that an owner can agree to a fee for a player, that doesnt have to be paid within at least a few months.  So you just promise to pay a club in a couple of years, and promise to pay a player an inflated wage for 3 years, with the law of averages saying it will be someone else's problem by the time it actually needs to be paid.  It needs to be stopped, if you havent got the money you shouldnt be buying these players, its no wonder the finances of so many clubs are in the state they are.

Not been able to find any news of the Administrators meeting with the EFL this evening but surely with no confirmed bids on the table and the season starting soon, surely they must be near to imposing a deadline for something to happen? With several of the remaining players indicating that they don’t want to play L1 football and most of their better players already sold, will they be in a position to field a competitive team anyway? They can’t sign anybody until a new owner is in place so surely they will be in as bad a position as we were? Not looking good is it?

Although it can be quite an enjoyable place to watch them bleat & squirm, that “Latics speyk” forum is priceless. They actually believe there is one rule for us (&Derby & Sheff Weds) and another rule for the likes of little old Wiggin/Bury/Macc. They seem to think we got special treatment from the EFL throughout our admin. One prat even sarcastically “congratulates” us for selling (as he wrongly puts it) “ 6k season tickets - down from 10k”  Their hatred & bitterness towards all things BWFC is obvious and they’ve definitely got massive pies on their shoulders. Jelly & Ice cream - Fuck ‘em 😄

If no Championship club is willing to take those players on then they will have to play league 1 surely, it’s not like the admins are playing hardball over releasing anyone if they offers are reasonable 

Based on them beating us as they did, with most of those players still in place (Garner etc), they are in a much stronger place than we were at this stage. They have a reasonable squad for the first match, we had under 23’s for at least half a dozen games. Starting on 0 points is also going in their favour 

Could deteriorate further of course

There's a whiff of panic on there now and I'm thoroughly enjoying it!

Think today will be interesting 

Smurthwaite has pulled out of the bidding 

https://www.wigantoday.net/sport/football/wigan-athletic-bidder-drops-out-race-2960080

 

Fans have been contacting him telling him to clear off? Beggars can't be choosers but by doing this what they are saying is, we prefer to be liquidated rather than have an owner with a chequered history.

Oh what a day to be alive. The way those cunts acted last year; that prick on sky, picking off stray fans, spitting at my kids; the first Wigan fan I ever met (2005, congratulated them on promotion) told me how much he hated Bolton...

 

I hope they fucking die and I will take immense pleasure in their demise

It is weird on their site. One post is basically ‘we are doomed’. The next is discussing which bidder they should support. Echoes of here last year. 
 

Then talk about 8000 fans can not be let down like this.

Probably a bullet dodged

However, their options are very limited

That Jackson? surely is their only hope

Time for the EFL to get some deadlines laid down

You would expect EFL to make a statement given Krasner ( admin)  said he was meeting them yesterday 

Have thought for a while that Krasner has been putting obstacles in the way of the American bidders 

Leaving the door open for Jackson and a local consortium  if they can raise the money

The Rugby club owner Ian Leneghan raised £2.5 million a week ago by selling some shares in the Rugby club - thought the timing was interesting - maybe just a coincidence ?

So he could pop his head around the door with a fist full of notes shouting, “Loadsamoney!!”

Well so far the Ganaye bidder hasn’t met the valuations the administrator has put on the assets so they’re either playing a brilliant game of chicken or they are only really interested at a fire sale price, neither of which is Comforting for Wigan. Given that Smurthwaite has pulled out this morning surely the EFL must step in and lay down a deadline for new ownership?

Well that's exactly what the EFL did with us and Bury.

 Both clubs were allowed some extra time iirc.

 We had a buyer very close to completing, whereas Bury didn't actually have a buyer  and were just playing for more time.

The rest is history as they say.

I've noticed a Wanderers fan calling himself Warren Bluffit has been posting on the Latics Speyk forum, throwing an arm around their shoulders and giving comforting words.

Quite unusual imo, as most Whites i know hate Wigan with a pash.

Is it you - White since i wur 3?
