It’s on total rl but nowhere else not even Wigan today
According to league express he is ready to sell to the multi millionaire who bought a stake in the club last year
If this guy is ready to put his money where his mouth is then our future looks good

I always wondered how long before he would look to sell and on here usually got told he wouldn’t or the family would carry on on here and was put in my place with that.

Worrying news if true

Ian Lenegan to sell Warriors

League express understands that Wigan Warriors owner is on the verge of selling his ownership of the club. Hope not don’t want another Latics fiasco.

Well he is getting older and may want to retire from running the club. If he does sell I’d trust him to sell to someone who shares his love of the club.

I don’t see why it follows if he sells we end up with another Latics fiasco. It’s not like there are foreign consortiums queuing up to buy RL clubs anyway.

Would this necessarily be a bad thing ? He's done his limited best for us over the years and he's had 100% integrity all the way, but never really had the money to market and invest in the club as it should have been, years ago as in the days of Mick Hogan.
If he is selling to his current backer at the club then this could be the beginning of a new era for us.
Just saddened his latest calls have been to get rid of Toronto and to take that cash from the private equity bods - I hope he's not tarnished too much with this.

Ian Lenagan has been a wonderful chairman,

In the years following the stadium move under Whelan and Lindsey we gradually started to lose our identity resulting in the dreadful 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Lenagan came in at the right place at the right time and the clubs fortune changed dramatically both on and off the field.

Agree 100% with all of that, Nate.

Just that this throws up another opportunity going forward, and nothing is forever.
