Fucking.
Hell.

Sadly, we've fallen into open fascism. The new norm. Scared people and organisations falling over themselves to appease the loud mouth bigots and rabid jingoists.

Bit of a hatchet job that article; which opens up with: "A series of tweets from the Black Lives Matter UK account about Palestine has prompted criticism."

Then quotes several examples of the criticism of the tweets not just from the FA but other political figures;  without ever providing an example of an actual tweet for context. Nor does it have a comment or even a mention that tried to contact someone from Black Lives Matter UK to get a quote from the other side.

it was one harmless, completely unsensational tweet. the BBC joining the fascist bullies like its the new "down with tha kidz" trend.

It's barely an article, more an ever so slight rewording of a press release from the PL, the sort of thing you'd give the work experience kid to do.

No, they just supported an organisation with political aims beyond that simple anti-racism statement and they're realising it was probably a stupid idea.

Wigan in administration just 4 weeks after their takeover. Must be some sort of record.

It's been a weird decade as a Wigan fan and every year has brought something interesting - losing 9-1, brilliant football, FA Cup, relegation, Europe, playoffs, RACISM SCANDAL, RACISM SCANDAL DOUBLEDOWN, relegation, promotion and PR rebuilding, taken over by a guy whose chippy failed, relegation, promotion, saved by the hair of our bollocks, then playing some excellent football either side of lockdown and now this.

A lot of Wigan fans will say they saw it coming. I never felt comfortable with the new owners - not enough known about them, owner known to be a professional gambler - but I couldn't say anything bad happened until they sold to a subsidiary company. Some uncovering suggests that

Quote
one of the principle reasons for selling the club and transferring ownership is that it will be financially advantageous to IEC in regard to a previous interest free loan of £24.36 million. IEC have provided a replacement loan via 'the new owner' and most importantly; it is interest bearing at 8%. This is now costing Wigan Athletic £37,846 A WEEK! The club have made an average loss over the last two years of circa £8.5 million which equates to £163,461 per week and therefore losses now total circa £200,000 per week.

If defaulted, those repayments leap up even more. I think it is possible that COVID fucked us here. But also a Wigan journo spoke to some at the club and they said the new chairman hadn't put any money in to meet costs.

Who takes a loan out at 8%?

What investment can you possibly be making that will make that worthwhile? Yeesh.

Bournemouth really scraping the barrel here. At least Norwich still have a little twinkly spark, like a kid thats broken into a playground game with the older boys but still fancies nipping in with a few flair moments. Bournemouth look like an out of form League One side.

Bournemouth should be much better than this.
Yes, they've had a lot a lot of injuries this season, but the players they have in the line-up tonight shouldn't be getting dicked at home by Newcastle.

I blame it on them having a manager who's younger than me.

This is AIDS from Bournemouth. Do they all have Covid19 from RAVEDAY?

I thought we might win this as Bournemouth were so fuckawful in the last 2 games I saw them play but it turns out our backs to the wall hit on the counter approach is pretty much their kryptonite.

£34m Bournemouth paid Liverpool for Jordon Ibe and Dom Solanke.

Michael Edwards is utilising actual magic.

Everton now playing 17 centre backs and the able-bodied population of Weston-super-Mare in the middle as we hold on to a one goal lead. Which, to be fair, is working.

Checked the fan forums though and apparently relegation beckons. Ancelotti "not fit to wear the genus" they say. "Australopithecus at best", goes the consensus.

Might be interesting to read some Leicester forums after this one. They're having a spirited debate about their charlatan manager.

I've had enough of that from grandoldteam et al over the years, not even sure I could enjoy the schadenfreude of seeing it in other fans forums.

Solid game management from Don Carlo for the win there. I'm cracking another tinny.

Edit to add: I thought Leicester's second half performance was the best I've seen them play for a fair bit. Big fan of Maddison.

Probs still going to end up being the 3rd most successful season since the late 1920s with Charlatan Manager.

At that point he won't be delivering the 3rd best season since the 1920s, so there's the difference.

3.5 minutes = obvious error. Liked the artificial boos though.

Depends how you define "best", I suppose. They have won a couple of other trophies that I'm sure mean more than finishing 3rd or whatever.
