Sports (Talk about balls here.)
Bluesfan has got it spot on. Ian Lenegan is heading up a consortium that if it passes all the fit to run, due diligence phases, ( like the last lot did !! ), will buy Wigan Athletic lock, stock and barrel, to be run as a separate entity. They could for instance, call it Wigan Professional Sports Consortium or something similar. The outcome, we get two local teams playing different sports, overseen by local people for the enjoyment of local people. What's not to like ? The 12 points come off ( if upheld ) this season if we stay in the Championship, which I think we will, or next season, if we are bottom 3 and relegated.
