That was my first thought when I heard. 

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

Imagining win 3 on the spin and still losing points.

Administrators trying to appeal against the 12 point penalty - talking to EFL.

They're also saying that 12 parties are interested in buying Wigan, Hopefully they'll survive but why would 12 parties be interested in buying a small town football club right now? 

Of course there are cracks, that's how the light gets in.

I can't understand how can they appeal the penalty, I thought administration just brought it now.... So regardless of if they're bought again, they should be hit under the rules.

Well Yes exactly, maybe they're going to argue special circumstances in terms of the money not coming from Hong Kong, I don't know.

But surely every club would argue special circumstances in that case? 

Of course there are cracks, that's how the light gets in.

Yeah, I wouldn't expect them to just leave it. I know I wouldn't want Wednesday to just leave it.

But the rules are absolutely crystal clear...if you go into admin you get a 12 point deduction.

Plenty of team's have an excuse, some of them are really good, but given we're expecting a points deduction because our owner wants to put his own money in to keep us out of that sort of situation, you can't be lenient to team's that are doing the polar opposite...appreciate it sucks, but blame Leicester for that.

Bury had a stronger case to remain in the league than Wigan do against admin.

Theyre trying a 'Force Majeur' defence but its unlikley to succeed

Kieran Maguire was quick to push that as a potential 'get out of jail free card' yesterday, citing Covid-19 as the 'forceMidgeUre'. 

I ask you will Galway bate Mayo? Not if they have Willie Joe...they haven't a hope of beating Mayo!

wouldn't force majeure have to impact upon both parties though to 'frustrate'?

If they do avoid a 12 points deduction,, fill your boots Chansiri and the other 71 EFL clubs and let's all start again with no trade creditors

The administrator for Wigan Athletic has admitted that there is no guarantee the players and staff will be paid tomorrow amid concerns that the club could follow Bury in being ejected from the English Football League.

Gerald Krasner, from Begbies Taylor, said that the owners, who only bought the Championship club last month, have refused to put in any more money and that there was only a “75 per cent” chance of completing the season.

Four weeks ago Wigan was sold from one Hong Kong-based company to another, both of which were, until recently, majority owned by the same businessman and a high-stakes poker player, Dr Choi Chiu Fai Stanley.

Krasner said that he is now dealing with the English lawyers of the owners and would be leading an investigation into the circumstances that led to the club being put into administration yesterday.

It was in November 2018 that former chairman Dave Whelan sold the club to International Entertainment Corporation (IEC), a Hong Kong-based, Cayman Islands-registered company, for £15.9 million. Last month, however, IEC sold the club to Next Leader Fund, another Hong Kong-based consortium, for £17.5m, plus repayment of £24.36m the company had invested in the club.

Krasner said he did not know if the loan had been repaid as part of the sale but yesterday he detailed the dire circumstances Wigan are now in, even admitting that there was an issue around the insurance of the players before their encounter with Stoke City earlier this week. Krasner said that the situation was resolved.

Asked how a club can be put into administration only four weeks into new ownership, Krasner said: “I think that’s a first and that will have to be looked at in due course. But my priority is to get this club sold and get them to the end of the season.

“Every administration I’ve been involved in has had its peculiarities but I think four weeks is a record that will stand for some time. The owners have said they are not putting any more money in, hence I’m sitting here today.”

Krasner said that he already has “12 interested parties” and will be distributing non-disclosure agreements and seeking proof of funds. He said the club could be acquired for as little as £10 million despite its assets, including the stadium and the training ground. He also asked journalists on a video conference call to circulate his phone number and email details, such is the urgency.

Krasner said that he hoped to have a list down to two serious bidders “by the end of July”. He stressed that the “75 per cent chance” of Paul Cook’s side being able to complete the season could rise.

“We are working on that as we speak,” Krasner said in response to a question about wages, which are due to be paid tomorrow. “I’m not going to guarantee anything but I’m going to do the best that I can. If wages are paid, even if they are not paid in full, everyone feels a bit better.

“The money I have to raise now is to make sure the travelling expenses are paid for the match on Saturday. It’s day to day items as well as wages. It’s not as bad as Bury because they are not in the Football League anymore. But if we don’t solve it and sell it then yes, it’s as bad as Bury, because the ultimate sanction is liquidation.”

Krasner said that he expected at least one more Championship club to go into administration and called for the EFL and the Premier League to consider revising their insolvency rules.

“Every director has to fill in a questionnaire and that will involve the owner,” he said. “We will be looking at the transaction from the Hong Kong company. We just don’t know what’s gone on.

“My experience tells me most things in football, financially, don’t make sense. But I think the Premier League and the EFL may have to revise, short term, their insolvency rules if a number of clubs start going over. And start looking at foreign ownership a bit more.

“If somebody is sat 5000miles away it’s much easier to do things than if you live in the town where you own the football club. What we don’t know yet is whether the new owner has repaid that loan by putting his own money in.”
