The first of what will be many clubs to not make it through the pandemic. Saw they'll get a 12 point deduction. They are currently 8 points clear of the relegation zone.

That seems harsh.

The whole Wigan situation is weird. IEC, a Hong Kong company, bought it in 2018. They sold the club 4 weeks ago to a company partially owned by a main shareholder in IEC and IEC loaned them the money to purchase the club. 

Wigan effectively has no debt, but it was costing the owners around £600k/month to cover expenses. The administrators are only looking for £10mm to purchase the club. Thats very cheap if they manage to stay in the Championship, and about right if the go down to League One.
