Thick Wigan bastards are blaming Ticketmaster for non-selling of season tickets - to me that shows the club are going tits-up - they obviously cant sell tickets for next season when they know they wont have this club next season - current directors would be liable for refunding the fans out of there own pocket - thats if normal insolvency rules apply

I’m afraid I’m going to have to call bollocks on that one to a certain extent as Ticketmaster haven’t been their system provider for at least 3 years now. And they’re only the systems provider so wouldn’t have the power to veto that. That’s not to say there hasn’t been a certain legal influence though and/or the EFL that has raised concerns about being unable to honour the product, but even then there’s nowt to say they won’t just say fuck it and get some money in regardless of whether tickets will be honoured or not.

Worth mentioning that it was a similar situation for us pre-takeover when we were only able to put season tickets on sale after a few home games.

They get relegated, have a summer of turmoil, end up with points docked for next year, have to field a patched together side of yooths and freebies and there's an early season fixture against none other than Bolton Wanderers. 

And they'd still find a way of not losing to us.

That Wiggin website really needs a Howard type character 

I must admit I've always wondered if Howard's mob were actually behind the Wigan takeover. He/they came on here claiming to represent a potential Bahraini takeover of BWFC, fast forward 18 months or so and Bahrainis take over at Wigan. Maybe we dodged a bullet.

Maloney scheduled to fly out to Bahrain on Saturday (been arranged for over a month) for meeting with Owners. Whether he goes or not will be a big pointer. Plus whether wages get paid or not of course. Wigan expecting decision re 3 point deduction on Thursday.

3 bloody points, should be at least 12.

Meanwhile, some former French World Cup winner is implicated in a particularly nasty murder.

If funds were tight, why did they give Richardson a 3 year deal then sack him about 6 weeks into it?

And then do same to toure!! And that’s after paying for his release from Leicester , spent some serious wedge.

Ultimately paying gaffers off, paying ridiculous wages thinking they would get a ROI when they got promoted is all on the owners. That ground is a noose round their neck. They were on about naming rights, hosting concerts etc, making it more of a community facility and non have happened. It’s haemorrhaging money and there’s a big difference in having the money and being willing to spunk it on something which won’t give it you back
