NEW THREAD FOR ALL THINGS TAKEOVER

Kieffer's scored for Cardiff again today 11 goals this season bargain of the season at pathetic £2m fee.
Or maybe Jamal down the road at £850k ?
Mumbles cottages x 2 perhaps as part of the deal ?
Feck off Begbies
It was common knowledge all our players were available. We sold right in the middle of a pandemic and am sure if enough interest was there a bidding war would have ensued which would have driven the price up. Neither of the players above scored many for us and scored 16 all season between them so am guessing other clubs didn't fancy them.

Bidding wars rarely happen now with release clauses in contracts. The agents "let it be known" what the clause is, the interested clubs all bid at the release clause level - which must be accepted by the selling club, the buying clubs then do their best to woo the player and agent with salaries / signing on fees. The agent's insist on another release clause in the new deal and the the games start all over again 2 years later.

Apart from the other 4 clubs who also bid £2m for Moore ? If you can't walk up the price at that stage you are incompetent.
And Lowe 850k a loss of £1.5m in 12 months.
If the admins had done their job properly we could have kept most of the rest and all the kids for sure - disgraceful all round

No release clause in either Moore or Lowe contracts - William's and Jedi ues

Did you have any issues when Victor Moses was bought from Crystal Palace for peanuts, or Euxton was bought from Bolton for a knock-down price?
Although Palace were in admin at the time and they needed the money to pay wages I dont think there was a release clause involved we just outbid the other interested clubs with a fee of £2.5m therefore doing Palace a favour.

See below - and no as Bolton needed to sell - we didn't if the admins had done their job properly.
You do realise the club will not benefit at all from the sale of Euxton as the admins have trousered that ?

If we can hold on keeping going, even in L2 until hopefully
fans are allowed back in the Stadium to generate some vital
income and some atmosphere, start afresh and build up the
Club, as we have done in the past.

We need players who are tougher menatally and more
physical throughout the team who can dominate the match,
and not be pushed around like boys v men.

We don't need to spend a fortune as Accy and other teams
have proved.

And we need a manager who will set up to win. Play to win and try to win.

Funny how land and property in Euxton continues to rise in value yet Euxton Lane was sold for much less than its value and certainly much less than the so called knock down price we gave it away for to Trevor Hemmings FC.

Anyone else have a message from crowdfunder saying "thanks for supporting Save Wigan Athletic, it was a success & the project team will be in touch shortly"?????
Yes I got the same email. It may just be a holding email they send out after a set period of time (it’s been so long now). Doubt it means anything significant has happened

Last time we got one it was an "admin error" because someone at crowdfunder had forgotten to extend the date on the fund - according to the SC if I remember correctly.
Think last time it happened at a very inconvenient moment as other stiff was going on and it sparked a mass of speculation on social media.

Plan B ? - anyone shed any light on what plan B is or have I missed the detail on it and what happened to plan A ?
Also whilst interest rates are low some monies should be being generated- who's getting that ?
Seen nothing fm the SC for weeks - again 🙄
They should have invested sone of our money in bitcoin 6 months ago - could have bought the club 10 times over !
Every day that goes by without proactive action on the supporters behalf by the supporters club is a day wasted IMO.
Seems little or no pressure being formally applied by anyone on anyone right now which is frightening as the EFL cliff edge is less than 6 months away

As you've obviously not been paying attention, your punishment (which will happily also have the by-effect of educating you) is to read the other 400 and odd pages of this thread, and the information on the SC website, at the end of which, you shall provide the forum with a short dissertation on your perception of Plan B in no more than 25 words.

As a once famous Bank Manager cum Home Guard Captain might have said ..........You stupid boy !

You should have suggested the Bitcoin thing 6 months ago.

Or alternatively........we're all doomed
Lack of action / urgency / pressure by the SC has been and remains underwhelming, the other key influencers - Nandy and Council have gone quiet and Burham has left to jump on the latest bandwagon.
Meanwhile EFL move nothing forward and Admins count their fees.
The fact that there exists 400 pages says it all really 🙈
