Re: Wigan Athletic football club goes into administration

The speed from the change of ownership being executed to Wigan being put into administration has raised eyebrows. Joint administrator Gerald Krasner, who took over as chairman of Leeds United in 2004 in the middle of the Yorkshire club's dire financial situation, said the matter would be investigat...

Re: Bateman back

I even remember "talk" of increasing the number of marquee players any team could have to three. With Wire signing Greg Inglis I did wonder if this was going to be so for next season. Makes you wonder............. Still with Escare gone and Joe Greenwood/ Joe Burgess/Jake Shorrocks/Thomas Leuluai/Be...

Re: Bateman back

There is a rule about “returning players”, 50% on cap first year,75% second year,or does that only apply to Union?

Re: Wigan Athletic football club goes into administration

I think the latics have been used in a ponzi scheme by IEC - some fraud has gone on and if nothing raises doubts over future "foreign ownership" without any due diligence and guarantees for clubs especially from the far east "investors" Also proves that football really is built on a house of cards D...

Re: Wigan Athletic football club goes into administration

Apologies, being lazy but who does own the DW now? Did the Warriors pay rent to Latics? Until 2018, the club was owned by Dave Whelan, who steered them from the fourth tier of English football to the Premier League in 2005, and they also won the FA Cup in 2013. Whelan sold the club to Hong Kong-bas...

Re: Intersting offers for rhinos fans

Leeds were also allegedly first in the queue for some of the money loaned to the the rfl by the Government I hope Leeds have to pay the all that money back and not the game in general.

Re: Just a feeder club

It definitely does feel like we’ve been more hard done to with losing best players than other clubs. Even though Bradford then Leeds then Saints had big periods of dominance. One part is victim of own success with youth squad, but there’s something else to it! but Bradford were pulled apart, Hape, ...
