Is JR shooting for the top?

Votes have been flying in for the TNS Top 50 players poll but you still have time to put your own favourites forward. We have now received over 800 nominations but we’d would dearly love to get over that thousand mark


What we’re seeing so far makes fascinating reading. Three players have broken out into a slight lead – can you guess who – with the top player featuring in the Top 10 of 85% of all voters.


There’s also a healthy chasing pack including one or two who are currently plying their trade in the Premier League or are still at the club in one form or another as well as players from the past who have helped us get there.


It’s also re-assuring to see many of our older players have not been neglected from the list both from our lower division days and indeed non-league years.


Altogether around 100 players have been nominated and still great names continue to be put forward for inclusion, including great players of yesteryear such as Paul Cook, Tony Black, Don Page and Ian Purdie.


Just a few votes separate the top few places so your vote really does count and we are asking as many Wigan Athletic fans as possible to contribute to this survey so that we can get as broad a cross section of answers as possible.


Details of how to contribute are below:

The idea is simple. Just give us ten of your top Latics players. Top can mean favourite, best, most memorable or just certain players that are synonymous with your love of Latics, whether you’ve seen them play or not; whether they are one of our current Premier League stars or served Wigan Athletic in it’s formative years as non league FA Cup giant killers.

It’s entirely up to you whether you do it instinctively or spend hours whittling down your shortlist but we want to hear from you as soon as possible so that we can get as many votes in as possible.

Send us your Top Ten Latics players in any of the following five ways:

1. Add them on our forum here 

2. Post them in the comments box below this article

3. Email them to us at

4. Post a comment on our Facebook page or under the story link

5. Tweet us @TNS_WAFC using the #Top50wafc hashtag

We’ll keep a running count and keep you up dated as we continue to celebrate the fantastic history and achievements of Wigan Athletic and the many great players and characters who have served our club over the years
