Back in the limelight

Wigan Athletic lift the FA Cup

It’s bizarre to think that it’s five years next May since we lifted the FA Cup. Five years since the defining moment in our history,  five years since the eyes of the world were upon us. I often think we aren’t given the credit we deserve for our cup win. Probably as a result of

Good to be back

Wigan Athletic Blackburn

I don’t know about you but it feels an age since we last played a league game. That frustrating goalless draw with Blackburn may as well have been last season, let alone last month. A lot has happened since then, any potential takeover talk has calmed down and Latics have progressed through one cup and

The Cup runneth over

Before kick-off on Saturday all the talk was of a point against Blackburn being a decent result, and so it came to pass. The first goalless draw in the tenure of Paul Cook as Latics manager and I’m not sure it’s a game anyone will remember fondly. Blackburn came with an intention to get a

We weren’t about to buy two train tickets to manchester this week so we sent Jimmy on to the mean streets of Wigan with the difficult challenge of finding us a Manchester United fan to talk to.  As unlikely as it seems, he found one, Paul aka @NorthernCasual gives us a different perspective on Sunday’s FA Cup 4th Round tie….

CUP FEVER

CUP FEVER

Well, well Mr Joyce, with all these shiny gleaming wins you are really spoiling us. Apologies – if that sounds a bit like a chocolate advert featuring sharp suited ambassadors, well it’s not exactly by accident.
