I never knew that the new owners of Wigan were interested in Ipswich first 21:51 - Jul 9 with 4158 viewsMaySixth

and were shown around the ground etc before a game a year and a half ago

Marcus Evans then simply didn't bother to get back to their interest in the club and they moved on to pastures new

if he is so interested in selling, why is clinging on and refusing offers?

How did your post jump from them having a look around the ground to them having an offer rejected?

My hobbies include being quiet during trips, clapping with songs, and diabetes.

I actually heard this from a good source a while ago.

They couldn’t afford what Evans wanted from what I was told.

Fair enough.

Are their owners filthy rich or happy to fling some more cash about? If not then we probably wouldn’t be much better off anyway

They are called International Entertainment Corporation.

There is nothing to suggest that they would have been any improvement on Evans.

Evans having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time is bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.

They gave up pretty damned easily. Doesn't suggest they were overly keen to buy us.

Seems they were just looking for any old club.

Nothing to see here.

If it was such a tax advantage, surely he would engineer to lose more money?

To be fair, Ive no idea. But there's nothing to suggest that they would have been the answer to our prayers.

I don't see them as a great loss.

I trust ME far more than I do those chancers. He's had plenty of offers to sell up and has refused. Fans slate him but he's still a much better custodian than any of these fly-by-night idiots.

I agree.

But I expect to get slated for doing so.

I'm not saying ME is perfect, we all know he's made mistakes. His biggest was probably buying us in the first place. But I think he's better than a lot of owners out there.

They found someone more desperate.

I don't really see what the discussion is here, there's nothing to suggest we missed out.

What do you know about those ‘chancers’? They have worked closely with Joe Royke at Wigan and things appear to be going well

I’ve not looked into them in great detail but nothing to suggest they are poor owners or fly by nights that I can see

Poorly worded from me, Joe. I shouldn't have said 'those' in relation to the new lot, no real idea about them tbh.

What I should say is that I meant some of the *reported* offers to ME previously, many of whom I understood to be a bit like that.

They finished 18th having taken over a steady club with a settled manager in November.

During their tenure they have recouped £4m in fees and spent nothing.

I think this is a case of 'wait and see'.

You would think ME turned down a meeting with Sheikh Mansour or something.

LOL

Was longer ago than that, I think, and wasn't before a game. It was during the week. Were given the whole tour. I don't know why nothing came if it. That'd be conjecture on my behalf.

Not as interesting as his son being shown around Town with a group of investors (presumably the lot that have just bought Wigan) a year or two ago.
