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 […]
Remember that sunny day in April on the Fylde Coast? And the week after when Gary Caldwell was the toast of the club and Wigan town centre bounced to the sound of Will Grigg’s on Fire? Those memories that last a lifetime, yet already seem so far away.
a goal (and maybe some points). Just opened Day 16 on my Wigan Athletic advent calendar. Empty again! No points, no shots, no goals. 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.
Saturday was doubly disappointing. Disappointing in the sense of the result but equally disappointing as for the first time under Warren Joyce’s tenure for large parts of the game against Derby we looked the better side. We played some great football at times but again couldn’t convert that to goals. The difference between Saturday and […]
We’re back once again like a train trying to get into Wigan Northwestern station after a landslide. To be honest, the lack of Sixy Talk hasn’t been from want of trying, but when we realised that the last article coincided with the victory at Cardiff, we decided to put some extra effort in this week […]
Five minutes in and the over-riding thought of Warren Joyce’s first ‘proper game’ at the DW Stadium (it’s only right, for so many reasons, that we wipe the Reading game from our minds) is that at least we’re not 2-0 down (I said “only fair”, we were 2-0 down after 5 minutes, that sort of […]
