EFL chairman filmed talking about Wigan Athletic’s current struggles

first_img A red-faced EFL official confirmed last night: “The EFL is aware of a video of its chairman posted on social media this evening that discusses recent developments at Wigan Athletic. “It was part of a much wider and impromptu discussion he was having with a Wigan supporter he does not know but who lives in the same area. “The private conversation focused around the events of the last 24-48 hours, how the EFL can assist and what happens next. “The various rumours and reports that have been circulating throughout today were also discussed. “Whilst the chairman was unaware he was being filmed he was happy to engage in the debate and appreciates this is a concerning and challenging time for all those associated with the club.” Wigan are already scrambling to find the cash to finish the season — with the players and staff heading for massive pay cuts. Parry has been approached for comment. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 EFL chairman Rick Parry has been caught on camera discussing allegations that Wigan’s administration is linked with a Far East betting coup.

And Parry can be heard saying: “There’s rumours that there’s a bet on them in the Philliipines on them being relegated. The previous owner has got gambling interests on the Philipines.” A month ago, Wigan were sold from one Hong Kong-based company to another, both of which were majority-owned by professional poker player, Stanley Choi. He has since been replaced by Chinese businessman Yeung Wai Kay but the club have now been put into administration because the owners are now refusing to invest any more money. There will now be questions about Parry’s remarks at a time when Wigan, who are 14th in the table and ten points above bottom side Luton, face a 12-point penalty that could relegate them.Advertisement Loading… last_img read more

Angels Offseason Options: Will Smith

first_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Why he makes sense: Billy Eppler has made it clear by his actions that he’s not a believer in using significant resources for relievers, because they are so inconsistent from year to year. It is unlikely the Angels will go after any of the big money free agent relievers who will require multiyear deals (Craig Kimbrel, Kelvin Herrera, Jeurys Familia). Smith might be just affordable enough that Eppler takes a shot. Not only is his salary going to be reasonable, but it’s only a one-year commitment, so not much is lost if he has a bad year. And he hasn’t had a bad year since he was a 22-year-old rookie. Having already had Tommy John surgery, Smith would seem to be a safe bet to have a sound elbow. José Álvarez has been the only lefty in the Angels bullpen the past few years, so they could use another one. Smith is also coming off his best season. Why would the Giants trade him? We can’t be sure exactly what they’re going to do since they are currently looking for a GM, but unless they are planning something dramatic to contend in 2019, Smith isn’t going to around when they are good again. If they are trying to rebuild, they could move Smith for a decent prospect. Because he’s a reliever with one year left, the Angels probably wouldn’t have to part with any of their top 10 prospects, but it could be someone in the next group.Why he doesn’t: Eppler might just want to hold on to all his prospects, as he continues to let the farm system regenerate. Eppler might not feel he needs to invest in this type of reliever since he’s shown he’s adept enough at getting relievers on waivers or minor league deals (Blake Parker, Felix Peña, Bud Norris, Yusmeiro Petit). Also, $4 million is $4 million. It’s not a lot, but it’s not nothing.Previous players: C J.T. Realmuto, RHP Nate Eovaldi, RHP Sonny Gray, LHP Patrick Corbin, LHP CC Sabathia, UT Daniel Descalso, RHP Julio Teheran, LHP Gio Gonzalez, UT Marwin Gonzalez, LHP J.A. Happ.Related Articlescenter_img (This is the latest in a series of quick profiles on players who fit for the Angels to add over the winter. They are purely “informed speculation,” based on what we know about the Angels’ roster needs along with General Manager Billy Eppler’s preferences and history. We’ll have a new one every weekday, until the GM Meetings, which are the unofficial start of the hot stove season.)WILL SMITH, LHP, San Francisco GiantsThe basics: Smith is on his third team in six seasons in the majors, but he’s posted an ERA of 3.10 in his last five seasons, with one break while he rehabbed from Tommy John surgery. He has the eighth-best ERA of any lefty reliever who has pitched 250 innings since 2013. He will turn 30 next July.2018 season: His first season back after surgery was his best, with a 2.55 ERA, 12.1 strikeouts and 2.5 walks per nine innings. His 0.981 WHIP was his career best. He came back May 2 and pitched 53 innings.Contract status: Smith is due to make about $4 million in his final season of arbitration, and then be a free agent after 2019.
