Sorry for them. But:

Perhaps they should have asked Sheffield Utd for support.

Perhaps if Tevez had not played.

Perhaps if they'd had a better chairman.

Perhaps if Fulham had not fielded a weakened team.

Perhaps...

Very little response to this by WHOers, which surprised me.

I don't bet on anything ( in the bookmakers sense) but I honestly cannot believe gambling firms are allowed to sponsor sports clubs. It's an obvious open door to corruption, even if this case is yet to be proven.

Re: Wigan enter administration
Anyone coming into English football should deposit enough money with the league to cover costs for two years so this kind of thing doesn’t happen

I think it did flag up, the EFL knew about it......im guessing it would have been millions spread across thousands of accounts........its all dodgy and bent as fuck out there that i would lean 60/40 that its true

Re: Wigan enter administration
Be interesting to see Rossal but on the face of it it doesn't make sense because you are relying on millions being traded on Wigan getting relegated.

Is there that much interest in the fortunes of Wigan that this could go under the radar without raising suspicions. Ultimately, a punter/bookie would have to be gullible enough to lose a fortune for this to be true.

That being said, stranger things have happened.

Its criminal what has has happened to Wigan. even Martinez said this morning he cant understand how this has happened.

Re: Wigan enter administration
And agree Trundle seems like you can do what you want if you pay up. Sad state of affairs, football turns even more shit

Hermit

The link is the Wigan shirt sponsor is a betting firm out in that region!!!

My guess would be theyd lay it off on their own firm and back it through loads of others????

Theres a thread on twitter somewhere, read all of it......its utterly astonishing

Thanks Alan but I struggle with that.

For it to be true you are looking at a bookie in the Philippines taking a bet worth millions on Wigan getting relegated.

You'd have to be a colossal mug to take that bet because it reeks, and bookies with millions are rarely mugs.

Re: Wigan enter administration
If the Saudi's get hold of Newcastle, then there's literally no point in having these "fit and proper persons" tests that potential owners have to pass.

They have just been found guilty of pirating Premier League games, so why the league is even entertaining their offer for Newcastle is anyone's guess.

Sport and gambling are not good bedfellows

Rossal 12:28 Tue Jul 7
Re: Wigan enter administration
The full alleged story involving these dodgy owners and a huge bet in the Philipines is utterly bonkers and possibly the biggest scandal ever in the english game.

EFL chiefs who signed off the takeover should be binned for starters. Yet another case of money ruining the game for the normal working class fan

Who knows. Maybe the SPIVS sell up and go riding into Wigan and save them with their expertise of saving sleep giants.?

It should read ANTHONY, surely (SHIRLEY)?

Robertson, Robinson, what does it matter?
