    Wigan start the ball rolling

    Wigan have gone into admin and face a 12 point deduction.

    The question is, how many other clubs from the Championship and below will follow them?

    How can these clubs survive without paying spectators?

    It's fine for the Prem clubs who still receive telly money, but these lower clubs still have to find the brass to pay for their players even though they are not receiving any revenue.

    Tip of the iceberg 59er. I've sent a van full of pies round to try and help them out...

    You're just hoping that they may bring loads of pies!

    Let this be a cursory warning for the "We want outside investment brigade" on here and all around Turf Moor?

    That's such a complicate tale I gave up halfway through reading it. Does make you think though, 'better the devil you know' ?
