    Well at least we know were we stand and what needs to happen.
    Listen it’s a few million quid which for a club in admin is jack sh1t.

    look at the likes of Pompey and Bolton. My worry Covid and no matchday income putting people clean off buying the club. Funding will have to come straight out the owners pocket meaning it will take someone rotten rich, barking mad or a mega rich Tics fan.
    I know theres never a good time to go into admin but right now is about the worse time ever to go into admin bar WW3.

    How bad is that, it’s now been confirmed that Way contacted Administrators enquiring about putting the club into administration the day before he became majority shareholder.

    Surely this info should have been given straight to the EFL and in turn they should have acted to stop him taking over,unfit.

    I’m still shocked how it all panned out. The independent appeals panel were even told about D.Royle been suspended due to refusing to vote on the club going into administration.

    We have been well and truly let down by both the EFL and the appeals panel. If we ever get back to normal and allowed back in to the Stadium, in our first live televised game I suggest everyone sings for the whole of the game

    “FCUK THE EFL”
    Let them vvankers know and the country how we feel

    Yes, an article in the guardian on that, unbelievable timeline.
    How on earth he was allowed to take over.
    History now though, new buyer needed….

    What happened to Darren Royle is outrageous and this now has to pose some awkward questions to be answered by the pathetic cowards at the EFL. They will obviously squirm their way out of it but the real issue to me now is why did the administrators not inform the EFL of the snakes intention to put us into administration before the takeover was signed off. Or at least refuse to take the job on. They are experts in this field and knew what would happen to the club. This whole thing is ridiculous

    This has now gone beyond football and it’s inept, spineless authorities.

    This now has to become an national and international legal issue. Oh how I’d love Panorama to get a hold of this. There’d be nowhere for any of them to hide. Because it’s Wigan Athletic the profile has been pretty low due to the shameful, but unsurprising, non-coverage by the press and TV. Get someone like Panorama to really stir up the shit and let’s watch them squirm and wriggle in front of millions of viewers.

    Unfortunately it’s unlikely to happen as we aren’t a Man U or Chelsea. But it bloody well should!

    I think this whole betting rumour needs covert investigation because the very fact that none of their actions appear logical, begs the question what was their real motivation to put us into administration at such short notice (when other major decisions appear to take forever), rather than secure our Championship status and have a better chance of recovering more revenue out of a better planned administration.

    Parry should explain how he was aware of the betting rumour in the first instance. There is no smoke without fire !!!

    What about the Barnsley QC ,invited to have input at hearing Barnsley were allowed to attend the hearing (which it did, via legal representative Simon Pritchard).

    And though Pritchard didn’t ask to make any further submissions, he did ask for the club’s costs for attending to be paid for by Latics.

    The panel threw out the request, saying Barnsley were there as an observer, and it didn’t think it fair to add to the financial burden as Wigan Athletic go through administration. Cheeky turds,on top of all our issues they want to add more debt…………shithouse club.

    It doesn’t look like they are taking membership yet for the coming season.

    The supporters club are now taking membership for next season. Its £6, every fan should be member, who knows, we could be the owners down the line.
    C’mon, if you haven’t already joined, do so, they have, and are doing a fabulous job and thoroughly deserve our support.
