The takeover of Wigan Athletic by investors from the Far East has moved a step closer.

I believe it's Dave Whelan's Grandson that calls the shots now. Dave Whelan 'retired' after saying it was “nothing” to call a Chinese person a “chink” and said “Jewish people chase money more than everybody else”.

More foreign investment? Just what the game in this country and a small club from a sleepy former industrial town needs.

Whelan's grandson has been awful in charge and has a low approval rate in the town of Wigan. 

It's a good move for them but they're fans are awful so I wouldn't mind them going pop.

Wigan fans were some of the most deluded I'd come across on the tinterwebs, after taking Forshaw and Rosler from us and then signing a striker who's agent kept upping wages and fees that were already agreed upon who we were trying to sign...watching them go down was satisfying.

Of all the clubs you could want to buy in the north of England, Wigan are an odd one.
