    Wigan Athletic Still In Administration

    Dodgy as hell this whole scenario, trying to sum it up in a few short points. June 4th takeover was the same owner but just changing it from his current company which owns casinos etc to a brand new company he's made in the Cayman Islands. June 24th, some random bloke takes over, an office worker who was declared bankrupt a couple of years ago! Never been the the UK, EFL no evidence he exists. Strong rumours are his identity is being used. June 24th supposed new guy contacts administrators within hours of take over approved. Record timing for the EFL to approve a takeover, despite being in lockdown measures with skeleton work force. Night before board of Directors voting 4-2 against admin. 1 director is removed and replaced with another, 3-3, owner, deciding vote, admin. Rumours of betting scandal in the Far East were gambling regulations are very poor. Turns out supposed high interest loan, paid from the owner to himself never got taken out and it was just on a piece of a paper that was shown to the EFL. No evidence of the club having any debt. Owner(s) do a complete vanishing act, seemingly not arsed about the money they spent as something else will earn them more money by chucking the club under the bus After 10 years of building the academy up from nothing to one of the best in the country, we are now having our starlets poached for basically nothing be Premier League clubs and 75 staff have been made redundant which is terrible. More postive news, EFL release a statement saying 12 points are deducted for an insolvency event, not simply for entering administration or receivership. No evidence of creditors being owed money, which is what an insolvency event is, so we haven't suffered one, therefore nowhere in the rules does it say we should be deducted points. This is how Blackpool had 12 points overturned last season. We have brought in a top QC because of this.

    Just got back from a trip in central Europe, Italy, Slovenia Croatia and Austria. A few pictures from Slovenia, which is an amazing country.
  6. We've suddenly got 5/6 key players back as well as about 5 new signings all in the space of 2 weeks. Got to play the home tactics, press high up and just go for it. Win and it could open up a 10 point gap and hopefully give us more confidence on the road, as well as poor away tactics, think it's quite psychological now. Frustrating the contrast in form, as at home I'd back us to beat anyone and it's automatic promotion worthy. Away from home and it's bottom of the league battle form.

    Berlins cool, lots of things to see and places to go, great transport links in the city as well. Not been to Barcelona since I was about 4! Hoping to visit a mate living there this year though.

    New Zealands top of my list of places to go that I haven't been too yet. All things being well, going to Barcelona in the Summer to visit a mate living there.
  10. We decided to revert back to the tactics we produced in the opening 9 games that had us 3rd and then randomly repeated against WBA and Blackburn and suddenly we looked a very good side again. Pressed high up the pitch, played with a high tempo, passed it about on the floor well and had good movement. Just hope we keep these tactics for the rest of the season and abandon the ultra defensive, slow, long ball that we had bizarrely used for the past 3 months which saw us plummet down the table. A few key players returning soon, so hopefully things will look better. Pilkington had a very good debut. Reece James will become the best right back in the world. The most ridiculously talented teenage defender I've ever seen in football. Chelsea have a special talent on their hands.

    Bolton Wanderers - Takeover Completed

    Think administration, which would mean certain relegation but likely to see the end of Anderson is the best scenario now. If he keeps hanging on, Bolton will go down with an ever increasing debt and may even have no football club at all. Stef would you take admin, relegation, a complete rebuild as you look to get the finances in order and 3/4 years in League One consolidating, before going back up, if it meant Anderson was a gonna?

    Brisbane and Cairns are class to be fair. Singapores a great stop over place. Desperate to go back over to Australia this year, was supposed to go each of previous 2 years but fell through due to family illness.
