Don't gloat. Wiggin Rugby are losing money hand over fist, and it's only a matter of time before SL is shut down.

Jarvo, how do you know they are losing money "hand over first"?
I think coming from you it's just wishful thinking.

The owners of Wigan rugby club could buy and sell Whelan. They've got their future secured.

I didn't gloat. As you are aware I am a former season ticket holder for Wigan Athletic and am keen to see them thrive.

What is happening? I can’t follow the stories because Wigan Today won’t let you read unless you pay.

Apart from what Gerald Krasner puts out which is very little,all that supporters have got in reality is that a bid accepted by the administrators is being checked over by the now very vigilant EFL.
Whatever else is rumour I think.
A Royle /Ransom bid,and a consortium of Wigan based people with the backing of a local man who has made a fortune in Hong Kong,are reputedly ready to step in if and when the Spanish bid fails which could happen I suppose given the delay. from the EFL,who in my opinion are like most sports controlling bodies not fit for purpose!

It's becoming a farce.

It's bad enough due to the virus not being able to watch the games from our vantage point in E2, but now we have the EFL displaying an over cautious stance. Better safe than sorry I suppose, but if this approach was adopted ealier in the year, we wouldn't be bottom of League 1 with no manager. Speaking of which, I heard the other day Gary Caldwell was being touted for a return to the Club !! Anyone heard any different ?

I watched the Zoom WASMental health meeting with Gary Caldwell run by Jay Whittle a Wigan journalist.
Gary comes across as a very eloquent individual who still has a lot of time for the club, and it is worth watching.
Jay Whittles work and interviews and access to the administrators are a genuine source of info at this time of rumour and innuendos from most media outlets.

Spanish prepared to wait for Wigan Athletic green light
The Spanish bidders for Wigan Athletic are ready to wait ‘as long as it takes’ to have their takeover approved by the EFL.

Personally they sound the best as they have put the money down proved they have the 5 million to run the club.As for the other so call investors where have they been for the last three months,and when they mention rugby in the same breath then I get worried(the ground) about there intentions,but one thing for sure we will always have a club with fans like ours.

Reading today that one of the stumbling blocks is the ownership of the stadium. If WIgan Council sell their share in the stadium to the spanish bidders then there could be more trouble for Wigan Rugby

If every fan donated £10,000 a year to the club, they still couldn't afford the right players to form a top-ranking team.

All bets off. EFL have blocked the takeover.

Obviously i am not laughing my opening line stated ( that my heart goes out to WIGANATHLETIC & THE FANS ) so lets get that clear ok i may have been a bit pessimistic about thier demise of which i still prayer they can salvage some thing and not go further down..
I am not talking crap for the reason just said i am an old rugby league fan and a Man Untd FAN i have never been one of those who dislike wigan rugby playing at DW ground and visa versa i have seen on here in the past a lot of uneccersary hatred from both sets and its not nice WE should stand shoulder to shoulder and support the TOWN OF WIGAN AND BE VERY PROUD OF WHAT A SMALL TOWN HAVE ACHIEVED OVER RECENT YEARS so i hope this gives you an indication to my views i will always support the latics /rubgy and sincerly wish them both the best and you too !! G.B.

I'm afraid - "standing shoulder to shoulder and supporting the TOWN OF WIGAN AND BEING VERY PROUD OF WHAT A SMALL TOWN HAVE ACHIEVED OVER RECENT YEARS" - won't help the football club in any way whatsoever.

I would suggest that the so-called 'supporters' support the football and rugby clubs by attending matches, at least.

They are winning 4-2, so that's nice.

Make that 4-3.

Not heard the Gary Caldwell whisper. Don't know why they got rid of him in the first place.

Breaking News: Following last nights 5-0 home defeat to Rochdale, a steward at the DW stadium was arrested after hurling a pound coin at the Latics players as they left the pitch.

He was later released by police without charge, as they couldn’t establish if his action was a protest or a takeover bid!????

Have the warriors really got money. They seem to be shedding players and last year it's said their losses were close to a million. The 2 clubs need each other if only to maintain the stadium.
