I said on the Wigan thread it this sounds fishy as fuck, they brought just over 4 weeks ago then they enter admin, raises questions over the EFL too how they vetted the takeover.

I wonder if we see a Celtic or Rangers Trojan horse buy out of one of the lower league clubs.

Good start for Wycombe. Ainsworth rocking a leather/jeans combo on the touchline :lmao

EDIT: And now a penalty for Fleetwood after three minutes  :o

EDIT EDIT: And now a direct goal from a corner/keeper OG for Wycombe.

This is mental.

There's a thread on Twitter breaking down the history of the owners since Whelan sold the club to a Chinese professional gambler who owns a string of Casinos.

It's dodgy AF how the club has changed hands with dodgy loans,  apparently Rick Parry has disclosed In a video of a massive bet in the Philippines was placed recently on Wigan being relegated.
"Since its purchase by the sheikh of Abu Dhabi, Manchester City has managed to cheat its way into the top echelon of European football and create a global, immensely profitable football empire, ignoring rules along the way. The club's newfound glory is rooted in lies."

Forest conceded a 96th minute equaliser to 10 man, local rivals Derby. How unfortunate.

Brentford wining comfortably against Wigan, Benhrama hat trick. Leeds winning at Blackburn though. Brentford 2 behind West Brom but Baggies have a game in hand (not yet played this weekend). Who have they got?

Benrahma looks a quality player, Brentford might struggle to hold on to him regardless of whether they go up or not.

Cameron Brannagan scored the decisive penalty for Oxford in their shoot-out win over Portsmouth in the League 1 playoff semis. Ben Woodburn also scored, and they're managed by Karl Robinson.

Watching Forest v Fulham until some professional football is on, fucking hell it's rancid. Not even as somebody from Notts I can't make a case for Forest being a good addition to the PL, they wouldn't. Shit on a stick doesn't even come close.

That's a hell of a goal by Harry Arter.

Definitely not a reflection of the quality of this game, though  ;D

Brentford keep rolling along!
Trent is pretty poor at free kicks. Said it for a long time. One decent free kick a few years ago and the commentators think he's Beckham

Late turnaround! Keeps the pressure on West Brom. Good win for Fulham at Forest too.

Most likely a West London Derby at Wembley I reckon.

What a shitshow.

Football should be about the fans and the local community. Germany have the right idea, where fans own a majority of the club. Its not perfect, but its better than leaving it to chance you get a decent owner, especially is such a monetized and money involved in football these days.
