    Hang on muttster. Who has classified the stadoum as grade D? It needs a bit of work but its still better than most.

    I didnt personally say that, but along with the KC, it was better than the rest, which were pretty shit (two of which are still shit). That was before Leeds redeveloped Headingley and Saints/Warrington moved to new stadiums.

    Compared to stadium being built nowadays (especially those with corners filled in to stop the wind howling through), then the DW is nowt special, and I would say in terms of location, accessibility and comfort its not better than any current premier league ground, at least 75% of Championship grounds and at least 9 League one grounds.

    So it’s a grade D because you have to walk 10 minites from the two train stations or 5 mins from the nearest bus stop?

    Give over.

    As for comfort…..what do you want? Spacious concourse and all seater. Plus a bar on site for both home and away fans.

    Sixfields better than the DW ? What the feck are you smoking New Meadow and Plough Lane half the size of the DW. Nrw Meadow out in the sticks. Valley probably the 3rd hardest ground to get to after Selhurst Park and Spurs stadium. Milton Keynes Bowl, it’s in Milton Keynes enough said. Get real mutt lad. DW is a great stadium that just needs a few cosmetic upgrades.

    Just watched Sunderland till I die season 2 for the 2nd time how the fuck Sunderland are surviving this pandemic fuck knows Programme was 18 19 season so just before pandemic. Wage bill was 40 mill plus upkeep of Stadium of light, academy of light beacon of light. They stayed down again so are getting the same money as us as no fans allowed. Wages now probably over 15 times our wage bill and we are robbing Peter to pay Paul just to pay our low low wage bill. Proposed new owners up there must be bailing them out to the tune of millions or how the fuck are they surviving. Must be many more clubs in our division on the brink of disaster when you look at our plight and desperate fight to stay alive. Scary times ahead for many.

    All, bar Wimbledons.

    For those who think the DW is a state of the art stadium, eclipsing almost every ground in L1, I’ll ask this simple question:

    In 9 months why hasnt it been snapped up at £3m?

    Because you also have to buy a football club?

    how the fuck are they surviving.

    2 years of parachute payments has certainly helped, and a lot of fans bought Season Tickets, which in turn have been converted into home matchday streaming passes via SAFCSee – our own TV channel. In addition, the take-up for single streams at £10 has been very high (sometimes over 8000), and as the club who sells them gets all revenue over the first 500, it means that we are doing better than most.

    How many streaming passes are being bought by Wigan fans? – you averaged around 10,000 pre-pandemic and (if I am correct) were not allowed to sell season tickets, so I would hope most of those fans will be buying them through the club rather than some dodgy foreign service which gives nothing to the club.
