Burning Revelation!

Burning Revelation!

Another three points but this was no walk over, and there’s no telling how important a win Scunthorpe could turn out to be at the end of the season. Expectations were mixed going in to the match at Glanford Park, though we were on the back of two wins we were heading to the side

Get it right – this time

Get it right – this time

So here we go again, just two short years since our first game back in the third tier we’re back again. Ready for another attempt at League One and as Joe Fagin sang in Auf Wiedersehen Pet ‘Get it right this time’. It’s been a summer of change in the corridors of power at the

History repeating itself

History repeating itself

You know me, I’m a worrier. Not to be confused with being a W…..oh you know. I’m always optimistic about watching my football club but I also fear what the future holds when you starting peeling away at the finances, the infrastructure, the support base of the club and past history, both recent history for

It’s like 2015 all over again

Stephen Warnock

So the season ended much the way it began, far from being outclassed in games Latics had been competitive throughout the season. But never doing enough to make that competitive streak pay dividends. Relegation to League One feels less of a shock than last time, mainly because it’s been coming for so long that not

12th Man: Make or Break

It’s amazing what can happen in the space of a year in football, this time last year Latics were preparing to host Southend a game that they won 4-1 knowing that a win the following week at Blackpool would seal promotion to the Championship. A year later and Latics go in to the last three

12th Man: Beginning of the end?

Wigan Athletic - Defying the odds

Beginning of the end? Its two weeks since Latics last took to the pitch and two weeks since Graham Barrow’s first match in charge. There were promising signs from Graham’s first game in charge, for much of the game against Villa Latics were the better side. There was attacking play in abundance, certainly compared to

12th Man: Fate sealed?

Graham Barrow

Fate Sealed? The defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday had somewhat of a final feel to it. Not a cup final of course, the days of those are long gone. But a final nail in the coffin? Perhaps. The results from the weekend hadn’t helped in anyway. Bristol City looking dead and buried before they

Hold Back the Night

Hold Back the Night

This time last week, I was trying hard not to think about the Bristol City game and distracting myself by building up to watching John Bramwell at the Old Courts.  There’ll be a review of that gig somewhere at some point but suffice, for now, to say it was a decent distraction, the first entertainment

12th Man: Nothing less will do

12th Man: Nothing less will do

This week’s article has a distinctly more positive feel to it than I originally had planned. The reason for that? Well after seemingly being dead and buried on Saturday evening, Latics in typical Latics fashion got a crucial win at Birmingham to throw themselves right back in to the survival mix. Let’s not kid ourselves,
