If any of you want to pass on my details to Ann, I will happily do John Murrays job for less money 😂😉

He looks good. Probably out of our range though.

I think trhe championship has called it right, I dont think that Wigan will be alone and as such might end up staying up on points already won,  so as they are net bottom, there might be 3 others in the same boat, so no real punishment

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?

Indeed, shows how quickly these things can change. SSN saying the 12 point penalty will be next season if they finish in the bottom 3 or this year if they are higher up, that seems extremely harsh.

If Bolton could nearly go ,,, they are a bigger club than Wigan?  I'm sure there will be a lot more sadly?

Wigan have gone 2 payroll submissions since having the players off furlough, there must be a good few doing the same, who will survive a third payday?

Can someone confirm which way Wigan voted before I decide whether to dance on their grave or not?

Never really liked them, empty soulless stadium every other week. Guess being within a stone throw of Manchester doesn't help their fan base. Fair play for that FA cup win few years back tho.

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 would doubt the Bristol City scenario given their owner,,..according to the times rich list 2019 he is worth £1.72 billion

I have mates down there, went to a game maybe 12-15 years ago. It was weird seeing guys with pints and having them too. Pie fell apart. It was a foggy day and Portsmouth had only one white player in Richard Hughes, they wore an all black strip. There was a deep intake of breath when ten black guys walked out of the mist, I don’t think they’d ever seen that many at the same time. I got dirty looks for shouting at Lee McCulloch after a minute, he was their best player 😃. Ryan Taylor shelled It to him all day, Taylor win the game with a free kick. It was an awful game but had four pints 😂
**** them, for Webster.

C’mon Anne buy them for £1 and do a Wimbledon/MK Dons with them moving their set up to Edinburgh. Let’s call them Heart of Midlothian Wanderers obviously dropping the Wanderers bit after 1 season and there we have it. Hearts in either the Championship or League 1 and send the Vicky’s up to the SPFL

as GC said Buy Wigan for a £1  sell the stadium to the Rugby League club....  Tidy proffit?  Call ourselves Heart of Wigan Athletic for a season, play a few games down there, to show face, and just return as Heart of Midlothian as a Champioship side as george said?

 

Hypathetically is that a thing, could that be legal?

 

Huddersfield still think that there will be a mass cull

They don’t have any money to buy the stadium, RL got a loan from the U.K. government to stay afloat.

Good time for clubs and a lot of businesses to offload debt and clear out the deadwood with the minimum of fuss, surprised more clubs havent gone down this route.

Average gate for the pie munchers is over 10000. They are very fickle following their club for a team which by RL standards are successful and gates do drop quite A lot when they are having a poor season by their standards.
 

Wigan is a RL town. Also suffers from the fact is has the bigger clubs of Manchester and in particular Liverpool on their doorstep. Lot of people I know at Work from Wigan area are Liverpool or Everton fans. 

 

Its not so long ago the football team were playing at Springfield Park Playing in division 4 in front of 2/3k fans and RL club were at Central Park. 

Been to both footy and RL at Wigan and there is definitely more of an atmosphere at RL. The football unless it is a big game is quite weird and the pitch in Feb/March/April is awful when both sports are being played on it.

Looks like both have roundabout the same average attendance.

It's a crazy story if true.

 

Make bet on a certain club being relegated. Buy that club. Pull their funding, forcing admin and points deduction, almost ensuring relegation.

You know what the EFL should do. Not sanction Wigan for going into Admin and if they escape, then that boys losing a fortune. Wigan might still be in the shit but Dave Whelan might be able to save them with a CVA and that wee shite Royale will be off to the big hoose.

They're absolutely rubber ducked if no one is stepping in. May as well start a new club now and make a bid for their membership and assets.

Got that wrong, Warriors now want to buy the football club. Strange that they got a loan from the U.K. government a few months back along with all the other top clubs.

I don't think they can go down with the deduction anyway. If the betting scandal is true, the folk behind it have made an absolute Ethan Hunt of it.

 

The 12 point deduction only applies this season if it doesn't leave Wigan in the bottom 3. If it does, then they start on -12 next season instead.
