Wigan / the game?

Recommended Posts

It seems that Wigan’s administration and, consequently, impending relegation is a lot some sinister than it seems.

Media reports that it is linked to a large bet in the Philippines based on them getting relegated this year. 

And it just so happens that their old/new owner is a professional poker player whose company, through which Wigan was being bought, owns a casino in, yep.... you guessed it, the Philippines.

This casts grave doubts over the whole integrity of the game especially the growing influence of betting companies (and yes I know our beloved neighbours are owned by one but this is not a dig specifically at them) and must surely ask very serious questions around the EPL’s  / EFL’s “fit and proper test” and lack of accountability after yet another club failure.

One of the Wigan fans on their message board has shown a letter he sent to the EFL and various media outlets before the takeover was complete. He warned of the issues which have come to light but was totally ignored.
