According to BBC they will be deducted 12 points, putting them right in the relegation zone.

The entire "pyramid" in both England and Scotland is a joke.

Outside the top two leagues in each nation it's rotten to the core and totally unsustainable.

There will be dozens of clubs disappearing in the next year or so.

I do think the financial impact of Covid19 on clubs is not a sudden impact but a rising flood. Clubs will get overwhelmed and go into admin. As others have said, they wont be the only club to go into admin because this, on both sides of the border.

My thought exactly. Maybe a few decent players to scout. Although I'm sure John Murray will have sent an email asking the administrator who is a good player already.

Wigan is an interesting one, the area is not renowned for an interest in football, it is much more a Rugby League town. The average attendance at Wigan football matches is below 12,000. They punched above their weight due to direct investment from their owner, and much like Gretna back in the early part of the century, have no long term sustainability due to a lack of fan base.

Good . Hated them since Webster . Horrible Rangers arse licking dirty sneaky bassas . Hope they suffer and slide down the leagues .

Hope the survive though . No fans should lose their team . After our administration I would wish that fate on no one .

They must’ve had an inkling about the trouble they were in, they will probably stay up but after that who knows.

Fairly sure he gave the Chief Executive job to his grandson. Who was about 15 at the time (*exaggerating) and had no experience in such things.

Edit: Just checked. He was 23...so not too far away. And it was as Chairman.

 

Which is worse.

Wonder if they've been paying average players £20,000 or so a week.  That's the general impression I get of the top two leagues in England.  Won't lose a wink of sleep if several go the same way.

Probably but might point was also - imagining facing relegation with games to go and suddenly win three games and find yourself in a different position. Who would have thunk it?

Wigan currently 8 points ahead of relegation positions. 

 

Actually top of the form table last 15 games. They should be okay.

Wigan were taken over what 3-4 months ago? Makes a mockery of the fit and proper leadership test the football league do.

 

I've heard Bristol City are in trouble too. There could be a few of these events happening soon

I suppose that rule is probably to stop teams in a relegation place from tactically calling in the administrators in order to start next season with a clean slate but it does seem harsh that the rules change specifically to make sure that the club receives the punishment at the most damaging time.

Almost but not nearly as bad as being voted down with eight game still to play when only four points adrift?

Well yes that is just bat shit crazy, what league would even consider doing that.... But the Admin stuff would be tough to take if you fought and earned your survival then they say well done guys we've decided to bring forward your points deduction to make sure you get relegated anyway! Still they could have had a 15 point deduction and a transfer embargo to punish them twice while other teams in their league still haven't paid their footballing debts from their own administration.

Wigan Athletic have gone into administration, becoming the first English professional club to do so since the coronavirus pandemic began.

The English Football League has said Wigan will be deducted 12 points.

The sanction will be applied at the end of this season if the Latics, 14th in the Championship, finish outside the bottom three after 46 games.

Should Wigan finish in the relegation zone, the penalty will be applied during the 2020-21 season instead.

Thats how you deal with it, 12 points deduction this season IF they are outside the bottom 3, 12 points next season if they do?  I put it to you m'laud that will ensure they dont win many games this season now??????
