Not a bad start

It’s been some week for Wigan Athletic, another point on the board from a tough away match at Norwich along with the signing of one of League One’s top stars last season – Nathan Broadhead.
Looking back at Norwich and apart from the first quarter of the match we were more than worth a point, and on another day could have had all three.
The way we’ve started the season along with some movement in the transfer market puts some of the more apocalyptic pre-season predictions in to context.
All of the players signed last season we’re done so with the championship in mind. It just so happens that we got there earlier than anyone would have imagined.
It’s fair to say this team were seriously underestimated over the summer, in the clamour for new signings people have dismissed those who got us there in the first place.
They deserve their chance and so far they’re grabbing those chances with both hands.
The Broadhead move is a wise one, he proved just what he could do last season up in the North East with their millions of supporters so it’s going to be good to see what he can do closer to home.
The club have spoken about taking their time and getting lads in with the right attitude, it’s a close knit dressing room and you don’t want anyone to disrupt that.
If you ever want to get a defeat out of your system early I imagine Tuesday’s march with Fleetwood was the way to do it.
Impressive performances from the lads breaking through from the academy including Babba Adeeko, Charlie Hughes and James Carragher underline the work being done by Gregor Rioch and co at Stadium Way.
Add in a 5-0 win in the U23 league over Watford and it shows just how well the club is doing.
With more reinforcements to come and the burgeoning academy once again delivering things definitely look up at the Dave Whelan Stadium.
Here’s to Bristol on Saturday and with any luck some more points on the board.
