Dire Straits Following the defeat against Ipswich last month I stated my belief that Latics needed at least four points from the games against Rotherham and Derby. They took one point and as excellent a point as it was against Derby we needed so much more – especially after Monday’s defeat to Huddersfield. Warren Joyce […]

Considering the last two games were seen as must win for Warren Joyce and Wigan Athletic things couldn’t have gone much worse. From flirting with relegation when Joyce arrived to it looking a near certainty unless something changes quickly. The knives looked to be out for the manager after the Rotherham game. Although the aforementioned […]
Well, that didn’t quite go to plan did it? The theory was that once we’d got the tough games against Villa and Newcastle out of the way that we’d yield some points against Ipswich and Rotherham. But that notion has failed in disastrous circumstances so we are left to search for another narrative. And the […]
I sat down to write a preview for the Derby and Huddersfield games earlier and got about 750 words in before I realised that I’d basically just said “I’ve not got a clue”. I’ve not got a clue why Latics are in the position they’re in, I’ve not got a clue why Warren Joyce is […]
New Where do we go now? It’s difficult to describe a game like Saturday, let alone reflect on it. It’s been a long time since we were on the end of such a sickening defeat. To have drawn the game after how well Latics played in spells would have been disappointing to lose it is […]

Maybe, just maybe, behind tomorrow’s window there might be a small festive crumb of comfort hiding inside, and I don’t mean a mouldy mince pie. There were enough glimmers of hope […]
The season starts on Saturday? How many times have we heard that the season begins this week? I’d wager half a dozen and the season is virtually half way through. There seems a train of thought that Warren Joyce’s time in charge truly begins this weekend with the games against struggling Ipswich and bottom club […]
As it’s the season of goodwill to all men (and women – we’re not Malky Mackay!) we decided to spoil you all with two Sixy Talk’s in a week. We got in touch with Alex, from Newcastle United fanzine True Faith to get the low down on (still) the biggest club in the North East.
