See the imminent Spanish takeover of Wigan has gone tits up. Their ‘bid’ would have seen creditors going unpaid and the club docked 15 points AND be relegated!

That fills me with confidence over any impending buyout for Town... I know we're not in the same state as Wigan but we can't be that much better off. Ugh.

There’s a huge difference. They are in administration and are being sold by the administrators. Seems they are more interested in bumping up their own fees than actually helping the club.

Mane and Salah against Aston Villa's kids team (including, and this bodes well, Winston Bogarde's nephew). I get it was probably too late to change team plans for Liverpool, but poor fuckers.

Reasonably seriously, I wonder if the prospect of being forced to play actual competitive games with youth sides will stop big clubs loaning anyone out in January?

I'm no fan of administrators but think you're being unfair there. The proposed buyers were trying it on - dropped their offer by 50% at the last minute, the new offer would have stiffed the creditors completely (who administrators are supposed to get the most money for) and resulted in the club being docked a further 15 points for failing to pay at leats 25p in the Ł to creditors. The offer wasn't in the interests of either the club or the creditors.

This kind of pisses me off. He's only been given the opportunity because his "celeb" status...and banging Michelle Keegan (who is/was fit as fook before she walloped a load of pigs juice into her lips a la Leslie Ash).

Similar to like the One Direction lad who got a "contract" with Sheff Utd.

If you or I had got close to a career as a pro footballer there is not a chance at 33 a pro club would sign us to give us another bash.

From the clubs marketing perspective it works because it gets lot of media coverage and people talking (positively or negatively) but this is nothing to do with football, more massaging someone's ego. Could he not have just appeared on Dream Team or Footballers' Wives with Gary Lucy?

Oh and they are making a fucking documentary about it too  Crash

Doesn't really bother me.  Looks like a minor lower league club doing whatever they can to try and improve their profile/finances.

Yeah I'm with JBZ. Life's too short to worry about Mark Wright playing 2 mins of an FA Cup tie. He's a nice enough guy. Lives round here and run into him and his bro from time to time, pre lockdown.

Not that I'm a fan of Mark Wright and his ilk.  Maybe STFC should look into similar wheezes.

If you mean Louis Tomlinson, he got a contract with Doncaster Rovers although he is a Donny supporter and is still involved with them as far as I know. Pretty sure he used his playing for them as a way of raising charitable funds
