We’ve had worse weeks

We’ve had worse weeks

Two games, seven goals scored, two wins. Alright one win came from the bulk of our youth side in the imaginatively named check-a-trade trophy but that’s a decent return by anyone’s standards. We’ve had worse weeks – as the old adage goes. Saturday was excellent from start to finish as is any away day in

The week that was

The week that was

A David Perkins goal, a surreal cup situation, a Lancashire hotpot to savour and some truly sad news means that there’s lots and lots and lots to chew over this week over in Latics Land. Let’s begin with a fine display against Blackpool and the elements on Saturday. I think it’s fair to say that

What Next?

What Next?

I could start this week’s column talking about the excellent win over Southend last Saturday, or I could even speak about the hard earned point on the road at Gillingham on Tuesday. But rightly or wrongly that all pails in to significance with the news that broke late on Sunday evening, that the tenure of

Sixy Talk – Fish and Chip o’clock Rock

“Do you remember when them Pie at Night idiots used to talk to fans of other clubs about how they ate pies and stuff?  I really miss that”.  Said none of you ever.  But you know what, we enjoy it and have been meaning to bring it back all season, it’s just that our intrepid reporters have been too busy arguing about chippy teas and thinking up daft questions for the gaffer to do anything about it.

Until now.  Which is good, because our opponents on Saturday have quite a bit to say for themselves that, even if we’re not quite ready to learn from, we should all get behind and support.

So off we trekked to the Cala Gran, Fleetwood for a word with, well, you’ll find out…

Feel Good Factor

So the winning run comes to an end, and by rights it’s came in a game we could and should have won by a large margin. Latics were simply un-playable against Portsmouth on Saturday and on another day would have been two or three goals up at half time. The fact we weren’t played right

Looking Good

As first weeks go it’s not been a bad start to the season for Paul Cook and his Wigan Athletic side. Not bad at all, an excellent opening day win at Milton Keynes was followed up by a hard earned victory over Blackpool in the League Cup.  Clearly not a competition that is at the

One Day Like This

One Day Like This

Such a perfect day. I may well have drank Sangria, albeit not in the park. Talk about a season that slowly gained momentum until it turned into an absolutely deafening crescendo. A crescendo consisting mainly of deliriously happy Latics fans singing “Will Grigg’s on Fire” in the pubs of Blackpool and Wigan until the early hours.

Judgement Day Too

Judgement Day Too

As you are no doubt aware, Blackpool fans have protests scheduled to co-incide with this saturdays’ game.  Jimmy’s article last week explained why we, at TNS are behind these protests, but we thought it was a good idea to capture the thoughts and feelings on their current situation.  We’re not trying to disuade anyone from what will hopefully be top day of celebration for Latics, but hoefully understanding what’s going on will mean that Blackpool fans get the respect and support they deserve on the day.  Here is Steve Rowland, Chairman of the Blackpool Supporters’ Trust, with his side of the story.
