    I see Wigan have entered Administration. As far as I understand Wigan owed Portsmouth a final payment on Jamal this summer which would then see us get our last payment from them. Under FA rules football creditors are protected. But could delay us seeing the money. Obviously would be worse if Wigan were to become liquidated.

    One to keep an eye on.

    Wigan may not be the last club to have serious financial problems. Fortunately our sell-on clause is with Portsmouth, not Wigan.

    That's interesting Adam, I'd forgotten about the final payment for Jamal, but won't Portsmouth owe that money whatever the situation at Wigan?
     
  4. I believe that the debt between the two league teams will be met under F A rules. No doubt Portsmouth will have budgeted to have their payment on the due date and this may still happen, if so, we should get our percentage.

    This item from the Latics board cleared up for me the slightly confusing (to me anyway) how the points deduction will be dealt with.

    The way it works is that if we are 12 points clear of the bottom 3 we start with a clean sheet In the Championship next season - if not we get 12 deducted from our total and start Division 1 with a clean sheet but I am sure lots of appeals and investigations before any of this

    As a result of Wigan Athletic confirming they have entered into administration, the Club will be subject to a 12-point deduction and, in accordance with EFL Regulations, the timing of the sporting sanction can only be determined once final league placings in the Championship are determined.
    If in the event the Club is relegated by virtue of their final position following the conclusion of the Championship season, then the deduction will apply in League One in 2020/21. However, if the Club is not in the relegation places following the final game of season, the sanction will be then be applied to their season 2019/20 total and final league standings amended as appropriate.
    The EFL is awaiting formal notification from the Administrators and once the League has received this it will commence discussions with the relevant individuals with the aim of achieving a long-term future for the Club.

    I suspect that we will not get paid until Portsmouth receive the payment from Wigan although we will eventually get paid under the football creditor rule. The unknown is when which makes planning for the new season tricky.

    That's exactly what I thought when the story came up earlier in the week. There's no way Portsmouth are going to give us money they haven't yet been given...
     
  8. If there is a delay, if they think the virus has drastically affected our income, what you might get is an offer from Portsmouth of a lesser amount on the due date as a final payment thus depriving us not only of the full amount due plus any add ons that might becomes available.

    That will be for the chairman and board of directors to decide then won't it? What's if's and maybe's Shepp as always.

    They are not obliged to pay us anything until they are paid so not sure why they would pay us anything. Let’s hope Wigan finds a buyer quickly.

    Isn't there a law about clubs in administration that says football creditors have to be paid in full?

    It’s an EFL rule not a law as such. In this case Portsmouth is the football creditor and will get paid if Wigan is sold. We should then get our payment from Portsmouth

    No problem, we'll take Jamal back, he'll probably get a place on the bench

    Doing alright on the pitch at least -- 7-0 up v Hull at half-time, Jamal claiming the crucial fourth in the 37th minute

    Could have done with Hull picking up so.ething from that game to help send Birmingham City down.

    Wigan obviously declared at half time, as it finished 8-0.
