The Bux Stops Here

The Bux Stops Here

Well, Tuesday night was a turn up for the books? Or a turn up for the BUX if you prefer! (You can use that next time he scores, Mr Kendrick)

I have perhaps been guilty of lacking a bit of faith in performances away from home. It’s been evident all season that we struggle to go to big grounds especially on wintry midweek nights and carry out our plan of either dominating the play (Caldwell) or contain and counter (Joyce).

Choose Life

Choose Life

Choose empty seats. Choose Brenda Spencer doing her big shop. Choose slagging off one manager  but getting behind the other, three at the back, one striker and not four four f***ing two. Choose train cans and tapas. Choose your favourite left back. Choose chingalings. Choose ugg boots and a ‘Martinez Out’ sign. Choose a player calling a fan a ‘strap on’. Choose 1932, 1978, 2005 and 2013. Choose “Up The f***in’ Tics”, nacking Wallgate and stopping a bus. Choose missing kick off and being back in the pub by half time. Choose selling your best player every January and replacing him with someone you’ve never even heard of. Choose broken legs and statues. Choose Jordi Gomez. Choose a last minute winner in the FA Cup Final. Choose the Mudhutter.

CUP FEVER

CUP FEVER

Well, well Mr Joyce, with all these shiny gleaming wins you are really spoiling us.

Time for the latest instalment of our ‘celebration’, if indeed that is the right word, of those players who not only let the fans down, their fellow players down but most importantly they let themselves down whilst wearing the hallowed blue and white of Wigan Athletic. Unfortunately, we don’t get off  to the best of

The Momentum Game

The Momentum Game

I know I’ve not been alone on these pages in expressing my concerns that history may be repeating itself at the DW over the past few months. However, the last couple of weeks suggest that history may well be repeating itself, not for Wigan Athletic but for Warren Joyce. A week or so ago I

Cup Runneth Over

Cup Runneth Over

Well, we only went and won a football match didn’t we? It may have been in the cup and Nottingham Forest may have been absolutely diabolical but we applied ourselves and played very well, thanks in no small part to the return of Sam Morsy.
