Looks like things are looking brighter for Wigan, subject to League approval.

And Charlton seemingly also out of the poo now, with the Danish-American bloke taking over. Nice to see some good news on clubs in trouble

I see whoever it is has asked to remain anon until such time he gets FL approval and takeover completed, he lives in Spain.

You would think he would want to talk publicly about his plans to take the club forward when it all goes through.

Local businessman buys the assets of the liquidated Macclesfield Town to form a new phoenix Macclesfield FC playing in the NW Counties League. And appoints Robbie Savage as director of football.

Indeed it could be worse, imagine your club appointing Robbie Savage as your Director of Football!

At least it means their first team squad will have really nicely maintained teeth and hair.

As was this thread Smiley TBF the article does make that very point, as with Macclesfield, Southend's troubles pre-date COVID which has really only played a small part in a much larger tale of financial troubles over very many years. Suspect there are a lot of Football League sides in a similarly precarious position, some largely of their own mismanagement such as Southend and Macc, others who just can't sustain over 6 months with next to no income
