Firing Bullets – Cardiff Thoughts

Right, before “fresh start” becomes the phrase of the moment at Wigan Athletic, it seems as good a time as any to fire up the laptop and get mine (fresh start) in early.  It’s been more than a month since I’ve done one of these and we’ve won two games in the interim, so maybe it’ll be a bit more cheery than usual, maybe…

If you move in certain Twitter circles then you’ll have come across The Pathetic Casuals.  Once they were young lads and lasses, touring the country in following the team they love, dressed up the nines and making sure they were seen and heard.

The first question when sitting down to write this was whether to try to capture everything that’s gone on over the last week or so, or stick to this week’s game?
