You wonder how many other clubs are in the same position as Wigan. Overspending to reach the promised land. Football is in a right mess.

The article is a fair high level summary. The answer to your wonderings will be "most of them".

The Wigan situation was partially a result of the EFL not properly vetting the new owners. I will be interested o see whether Newcastle is taken over the Saudis. Very wealthy but a regime that is abhorrent. Will money win?

This is happening time and time again. What do the EFL actually do?

As I do not think they are accountable to anyone - probably not much! As they have demonstrated with Rovers they like the quiet life! Just keep picking up what is probably a big pay cheque!
