    At last we can relax, hopefully we can stay in L1.
    if not, we can really re-build next season and start the ‘rise’ of the Latics.

    I suspected something was wrong last week.I think that’s it now we’re finished. :-(

    I have posted on the LS site, that some Latics fans have had enough of this fiasco.

    Yet poster are saying they are Not true fans and good riddance to them.

    I have replied:

    ”There is only so long fans can be ‘dangled’ with this takeover fiasco,
    these, are ‘NOT’ true fans, who have supported Latics for over 30 years
    are near 70 or over 70 years of age.

    They have been there and worn the T-Shirt,
    so do NOT insult them with ‘Good Riddance’ Crap!”

    Hello gang I’m still around and well thanks, just been in my plastic bubble like a lot of other fans.
    What happened to us in the past 7-8 months totally deflated me and many of my mates. I got to a point whereby it wouldn’t have bothered me if I never saw another football match again.
    I looked at the team being put out every week and to me it wasn’t Wigan Athletic it was an Administration 11.
    I know I’ve experienced worse times than this as a tics fan but this has felt so much different.
    I’ve watched every game, but also not enjoyed any, even the few we’ve won.
    With the new owners being just round the corner, I hope when they are appointed it gives us the lift we all need.
    Have a great tier 3 christmas and a happy, prosperous and healthy new year everyone. :good:

    Glad to hear from you, i’m in the high risk-cat,like you this Choi/Admin scenario,
    knocked a lot of Latics friends of mine six, we have supported Latics over 30 years,
    through thick and thin and because we said we had lost interest in this Admin 11 team
    we was accused of NOT being proper Latics fans, so 30 years plus doesn’t make you a
    loyal Latics fan.

    Keep Safe and well, have a good Christmas and a Admin Free New Year!

    We deserve a change of luck, 3pts is very welcome and hopefully we can build on
    this result, we have some tough games coming up and let’s upset the apple cart
    and win some of these games and move up the table.

    At present we are still in touch with the teams above us,
    how much longer this lasts is another matter.

    The lead up to the penalty when their player back-heeled the ball into our goal area and left JJ in no-mans-land, where was our defence?

    The Admins are treating us as Mushrooms,
    ”feed us a bunch of shit and keep us in the dark”

    If all we can attract is ‘con-men’, i think the ‘fat-lady’ has left the building.

    Defended the admins at first with the player sales but their conduct of late has been awful. Posting shit all over twitter, talking crap to some kid in his bedroom and basically lying through their teeth.

    Krasner said ”they are not here to run a Football Club’.

    What he failed to say,
    Admins would leave Latics on it’s knees and possible being in ‘liquidation’.

    The lockdown is the final nail in the coffin. Who will be prepared to buy a club, fork out for wages, utilities, etc etc and have no revenue?
    No sense businessman would touch it with a bargepole. I honestly believe we will be in liquidation within 3-4 weeks. :cry:

    I’m 69, i’ve supported Latics since i was 12, it’s looking really bad.

    Some of my friends are older than me and have supported Latics longer than me,
    just because i’ve posted on LS site, that some of my mates have had enough
    due to this takeover fiasco, they are called, not ‘True’ Latics fans.

    They have spent £-Thousands supporting Latics over the years and followed Latics
    all over the Country, these are blokes in their late 70’s,not 18 years of age.
    and not the ‘Glory’ fans, who went long ago.

    Like you have said, anyone who wants to buy us will have to have ‘Very Deep Pockets’.

    We are in ‘shit creek’ no matter who is to blame,
    as of now, who is going to pay ALL of Latics bills every month?

    As I said recently, the club I supported died months ago. It really did.

    Given the UK and world situation, I cannot see us lasting much longer. In fact, I think we are done. Games off due to ‘Covid’ in th3 camp. Is that really the reason?
    Or is it because the wages havent been paid ajd contracts are up? No team, no squad. Club staff walking away yesterday was a telling sign something wasn’t right.

    Kyle Joseph’s hat trick could end up in the history books for all the wrong reasons.

    What a dragged out shambles of a death of a football club. Blame who you want, it won’t do any good.

    Who is now going the pay the bills, now the Spanish has gone?

    I think a lot of Latics fans will throw the towel in now,
    their patience has now ‘snapped’, i have talked to a few
    of my long term Latics fans and they have had enough of this ‘Shit’.

    As of 11 am today, the Administrators have broken off negotiations with the Spanish bidder.

    Where do we go from here?

    ”Stanley admits he has been forced to consider what might happen if the EFL were to again raise a red flag – or even if the Spanish were to get sick of waiting and walked away.

    “I have to consider the worst-case scenario.”

    The Alarm bells are ringing loud,
    i hope this is not the ‘END’ of Latics as we know it!
