I'll have a bet that what your :READING: is complete and utter rubbish

But heres an idea, why don't you buy a season ticket
:IDEA:
Club will have some money then
Far better than throwing it in the bin

I won't be buying a season ticket this year, partly because of work and partly because I'd prefer to be vaccinated first. Will hopefully get to some games July/August onwards. Decided instead to buy more merchandise than I would normally - got a home shirt, training top and hoody this week. That plus Lotto and Wigan TV should more than replace the season ticket money.

Has anyone seen the Latics admins statement, and the Ticheads response to it?

Now I know there’s a fair few Wigan Rugby fans who aren’t the brightest, but you only need to listen to some of their lot to realise they’re another level! They make our daftest fans look intelligent :lol:

No wonder we have so much issue and negativity from them. Knuckle dragging Neanderthals, absolute thick as mince!

The admins have very clearly explained the lengths they’ve been to, to save the club from almost being wound up; likely a certainty, but for their actions to secure write off of debt from the past owner.
They’ve also clearly explained why their charge out rate is justified- namely because it’s not John the tic from DW warehouse who’s been running them for the past 9 months, but qualified accountants and businessmen who know what they’re doing and have 30 plus years of experience saving businesses.

Anyone with sense would read it and go ‘thank god for everything they’ve done to save the club rather than liquidate us’. They also tell them they’ve sold the lot for 2.3mil :shock: which I bet leneghan and danson would have paid for the ground alone. so it would have been a lot easier for them, and probably yielded better returns, to turn the lights off! But instead they’ve done everything possible to keep them in business.

Yet instead of thanks and relief that their unsustainable club, that’s still losing 15k a DAY :shock: , has been saved, they’ve got some ridiculous abuse and folk seriously saying if they see them they’ll put them in the canal!!
This is literally what we’re dealing with!

I think we all wanted them to come out of things and all I’ve heard on the rugby side for the last 9 months is support!! But when you hear their reaction to leneghan, Wigan rugby, anyone who’s done their best to help them, you realise what a bunch of idiots you’re dealing with. Ridiculous amounts of persecution complex!

Possibly would have been better for them to go to the wall and let these idiots go back to supporting Man U and Liverpool tbh.

to be fair the administrators are a set of lying ***** anyway so the fans have every right to say what they want

Are they really tho? Personally I think that’s more tichead nonsense because a lot haven’t been intelligent enough to understand the realities. Many still have delusions of grandeur that they’re a big club fallen on tough times, and capable of returning to the premier league in the not to distant future....something that’s now more a reality for Accrington Stanley or Forest Green Rovers (who could replace them in a couple of weeks)!!

Admins have also been trying to sell a club in almost impossible circumstances. The club are valueless, haemorrhaging money even now (15k per day :shock: despite rationalisation). So admins have had to leverage the value of the ground as an asset for essentially throwing your money down a bottomless pit!!
It’s a miracle they’ve sold them imo.

The added challenge is who’s interested. Mostly overseas individuals who see them as a loss making operation to use as a taxsaving vehicle on profits in their home country (like the Spanish) or worse still, a business to launder money. Those individuals don’t meet the fit and proper persons test to preserve league status, so most options have been dead ends!!

They’ve also accused them of lying because of lack of updates or limited information, without realising they have NDAs with every party dealing with them!!

Add it all together I think the admins have done a phenomenal job in keeping them in business....Macclesfield and Bury were arguably in stronger positions but went the other way. You’d expect they’d show some humility and realise that tbh
