    Business 101 with Latics fans.

    Club posts accounts showing big losses:

    “We should sack Paul Cook and appoint Neil Warnock/Nigel Pearson/Other high profile manager that would cost a fortune

    Club goes into administration and was reliant in funding of circa £2m a month to pay bills:

    “Why are we selling everything not nailed dow? This is a joke”

    Stadium loses money despite rugby paying rent and needs work.

    “Let’s get rid of the rugby we don’t need them”

    To sum up….having lost millions of late, the business plan is to remove a guaranteed income stream because of a 30 year grudge on a club no longer owned by the idiot that started it.

    :good: :good:

    Next week on the intelligence of Latics fans:

    “I’d rather go bust than be owned by Ian Lenegan”

    “Lenegan never wanted us and just wanted us to die. What a prick”

    I don’t want to be owned by the goons but rather that than not have a club.

    As for them playing here, good. Charge them whatever rent we can and split the costs of the upkeep. Win win. (Plus its a good venue to visit when we give them a hiding every season)

    The rugbys rent BTW is a % of matchday ticket sales.

    All monies on the concourse, hospitality, south stand bar etc go direct to the stadium company.

    So that would be a minimum of 14 weeks of income down the drain plus the rent money.

    And the stadium was still losing money.

    Is that why they rarely disclose attendance figures or say there were less on than there actually was?

    Fuck the EFL

    They count every ticket sold whether they turn up or not and that figure is announced every week. Same as Latics. Same as most clubs.

    Think it was Arsenal who announced a near sell out with about 10,000 empty seats.

    I remember that. Was during some storm (or might have been a tube strike actually) and they played at home midweek. Literally an empty stadium and they announced about 60k. Gary Neville nearly pissed himself.

    For years now Latics fans have said the rugby lie about their attendances and say they have more on than they do (forgetting the legal implications of this of course) and yet now we have bullitt telling us they lie about their attendances to say that there are LESS people on.

    :scratch: :scratch:

    I work with a Worriers fan, the day after matches (before Covid) i used to ask if he went and how many were on, he didn’t know so we used to check on BBC, Sky, Racing Post etc websites, and everyone came up ATTENDANCE N/A and that was most home games, don’t tell me there’s nowt dodgy going on.

    Fuck the EFL

    When they did disclose the attendance i used to take the piss about 8/9k attendances, every Worriers fan would say “Fuck off, there was more than that on” so who do you believe, dodgy as fuck that club!

    First few from last season

    https://www.wiganwarriors.com/fixtures?year=2020

    Pretty much every season you can imagine

    http://wigan.rlfans.com/news.php?readmore=4960

    Perhaps the fault is with sky and bbc?

    If your work buddy went to the game he would have heard them tell him the crowd as I do every home game.

    Standard response that in all honesty but all you can see is the seats around you.

    From my half way line East Stand seat the East looks full. Watch back on tv and there about 4000 empty seats as only the middle few blocks are full.

    Why would they lie about it because when the tax man comes calling they will want a percentage of a 10,000 crowd but there were only 8,000 on so they lose money and pay more tax than they need to.

    Alternatively, they announce less and have to explain where £x has come from.

    Completely agree ,especially in our Premier league days.The Rugby would declare a crowd just above ours but in reality the crowd was nowhere near the size of ours.We can’t start saying the opposite now !

    That is why Lenagan conned the council into letting him use the RP Stadium next door, so he can start tapping into all the hospitality money and depriving us of that income too.
    With regards to the Stadium not making money, that is down to one fella out of his depth. Clueless at how to manage a stadium or people. Andrew Birch.

    Had offers to host top sporting events, all sorts of daytime in the week stuff and priced the stadium out of it. I think WASC has had situations like that in the past, eg PIEGATE.

    Get a decent stadium sponsor and it cuts the deficit by half at least, get events going on. Big boxing ring in the middle of the pitch in the week prior to the pitch’s annual relay. Darts qualifiers. Snooker qualifiers. Bloody tiddlywinks qualifiers.

    Soon eat into the losses and could even provide a profit so that a maintenance programme could start, seeing as nothing has been done since it was built.
