Didn’t this tool say last Friday there would no more updates?

As much as it’s not my preferred outcome, I think we’re close to the point for the SC to instigate their nuclear option and buy the club. Hopefully it would be short term ownership to facilitate an onward sale, as I have no faith in these incompetents currently in charge being able to broker a deal.

Stanley says the trail has gone cold, and is pathetically pleaing interested people to get in touch like he was right at the start of the whole thing in July.

We’re done for.

If the Supporters' Club won't communicate with the fans, how long before the fans have to take action and plan for a phoenix club themselves?
So much for no further updates on the official website.

They are now just briefing the press instead.

Surely no further updates means that they will not be giving information out.

No more updates, then spent the last few days spreading rumours to fans via messages on social media and is now giving the post exclusives discussing how shit of a job Begbies have done. Not the first time he and his acolytes have said one thing then done another. A total charlatan, and unless the Supporters Club step in the administrators will preside over the club's liquidation.

I'm still confused, sorry Moonay, (says more about me than anyone else).
Is the bit that Hamptons says is "more than anything that the SC have shared" this bit
"we are currently without any potential buyers " ?
I thought there was some in depth detailed post that I'd missed.
Yep, that's it. Nope, no in depth stuff. Just Hampton saying that his mate (who he trusts, but won't name) has told him it's true that the Bahrainis have walked ......... and he won't/can't say where his mate got it from.

Hence the comparison the the criticism of the SC.

If it's true that the Bahrainis have walked, then it's logical that they should be giving an update on the multitude of other interested parties, who were all progressing - albeit slightly behind - their clearance with the EFL.

I've pinged Paul Kendrick suggesting this be put to Stanley/Krasner ....... not sure if it will get anywhere.

No updates made sense if they were in negotiations. Otherwise, it means all the stuff they told us previously about other bidders is bollox !

We may not always agree (!) and we may have the occasional fall out, but we have one thing in common on this board....a passion for Wigan Athletic and a loathing ( OK, two things ) for all the outsiders who seem intent on destroying our club.

Let's defy them and get rid of them once and for all. Let's get behind the Supporters Club, collectively and collaboratively, financially and morally to take over the club, seek out funding in any way possible and begin the club anew, in League 2 if necessary. Sounds impossible to achieve, but with the advice and help of people like JJ surely we can find a way out of this mess, away from the charlatans who are driving us all crazy with their lack of empathy and understanding.
 
Let's get in North West counties and enjoy the ride. No point starting in League 2 with 15 point deduction. Be belting going to some of these non league grounds. Let Stanley pick up the pieces. Let the rugby have the white elephant of a stadium and fuck the rest. Whelans killed the club basically selling to charlatans. Shit happens.

There is a meeting with Stanley tomorrow, kendrick has arranged for various supporters groups to be in/on that meeting.

Thing is Hampton might well be right
Has Stanley stated it's gone very very cold
Thing is nobody is saying Hampton isn't right...it was that his post said he had a reliable source who was saying it was def true that the Bahrainians had walked away but wouldn't confirm who told him or how reliable it is yet he was calling the SC for similar things in not telling the WHOLE story.

Incorrect Jock have been calling for the SC to be telling some or any of the story.
I shared what I was able - seems it may well be true unfortunately.
Won't hold my breath for any apologies !

The difference is that I have shared a damm sight more than the SC have so don't agree with the comparison with the SC who could have taken the same approach with some willing individual. In my view not sharing what I understand to be true would have been hypocritical- but each to their own
Anyways no offense taken, by me anyway, and next time I have anything on this which may be of interest to some forum users I will refrain from sharing !

BTW Hampton don't think anyone's doubting what your saying & that it is true, it's just the meat on the bones of it all are somewhat missing. I'm sure you'd be up in arms if the SC came out with a rather vague statement saying " there's a possibility of new owners to be unveiled in stadium next week but can't give our source or verify it".
Anyway I'll say no more on this other than - hope your source is wrong otherwise the fat lady must definitely be clearing her throat...

Where has Krasner gone ? I don't think he's spoken in public since October. The other two cronies seem to be doing things now so it begs the question is Krasner now out of the picture

Did say in my last post I'd say no more but I need to reply to your post.
Apologies for what? Nobody saying your wrong merely asking how reliable / who your source is & can you expand on what little you said.

Krasner is dressed up in a keffiyeh & checked headgear on top of a camel riding up & down King Street claiming to be the Bahrainian chief negotiator....😉

Supporters club need to come out and say something before it’s to late. Same as the mp. Very quiet indeed. The club is totally in a mess and nothing as changed 500 pages on here and nothing as changed. People like Ian McNeil and Arther Horrocks be turning in there graves at what is going on with this club Shame on every body. Time to talk to fans.

Don't wish to be pedantic but I will be !
I shared what I could last night and sorry I can't name names but that's the truth.
A comparison with what the SC have said is not valid as they have said nothing specific at all since the Spaniards rode out of town !
Would you or others demand Kendrick confirm sources ?

Moonay, mate, please look at my initial post my source (not a mate - an acquaintance) is an individual directly associated with the club !
