Time gentlemen please And now, the end is near And so I face the final curtain… You can certainly say we’ve done it ‘our way’ this year, sadly ‘our way’ has just been the wrong way all through the season. So where to start with the weekly review of all things Wigan Athletic? Saturday was […]
There’s always someone worse off than yourselves. A timely adage probably worth bearing in mind during the misery of recent weeks. Two years ago, we weren’t very good but when we went to Blackpool away, we absolutely trounced a truly awful side. There are reasons way too detailed to go into here as to why […]
Ever wondered what the Wigan Athletic story might have been like had we ever signed certain players who, from one reason or another, managed to escape our grasp?
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 […]

Was that a little glimpse of the old Wigan Athletic coming back on Saturday afternoon? No, I don’t mean getting nilled at home after an abject performance. Again. I mean that there was some semblance of play and cohesion to our game. The back four looked a bit more comfortable keeping hold of a ball […]
We needed a guarantee and instead we went for the gamble – that line can probably sum up the decision to appoint Warren Joyce back in October. Nearly five months later that gamble has back fired spectacularly and once again Wigan Athletic are staring relegation square in the face. There are many similarities to the […]
I wasn’t overly distraught over Warren Joyce being relieved of his duties. I felt very sorry for him, both because it wasn’t working out and I don’t like to see anybody lose their job.
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 […]
