    The points would. But if Wigan didn't get relegated this season then the rather larger bet would have been lost due to the fact they didn't get relegated this season . The bet and the end of this season is the main driver here, not the 12 point deduction .

    Why has Rick Parry not been arrested for fraud?

    Funny you should mention Rochdale in this. They have been fending off a takeover attempt from an American consortium over the past few months that appears very odd on the face of it. I fear that Covid has made an awful lot of lower league clubs incredibly vulnerable to takeovers from people looking to make a quick buck through any means possible.

    This is surely where Parry and his crew should be stepping in and helping out. What exactly does he do for the shed loads of money he gets ? it seems he sits on his fat arse, waits for it to go wrong and simply tuts, deducts 12 points and says oh well. This clown is in charge of a huge chunk of our national game, it seems the crooks are looking to pick it dry and he is doing squat.

    The new owner must be a dick brain.
    He bought the bloody club at the start of June for goodness sake so he must have known the situation tge club was in.
    The only alternative is betting corruption and I can't see bookies paying out if their is any whiff of forcng the club to get relegated to win a bet.

    Now the sticking plaster is peeling off I can only hope some honourable pull the whole bandage away on what they're covering up in this country.

    that’s one of the main problems. Lots of people in places like Wigan choose to support city, united or Liverpool. They’d probably be fine with more local support.

    it’s the same for all the greater Manchester teams. Stockport, Rochdale, Macc. I include myself as part of that problem. I go to County games when I can, but I choose to mainly follow city through my dad/ family.

    most the people I sit with at the ethihad are from the surrounding towns - not Manchester

    You need to read the twitter thread, the new owner was the old owner.
