Positivity rising

It’s amazing how quickly the positivity levels can return.

A hard earned point, that really should have been all three in London was followed up by one of the performances of the season, and a win to upset the form book at play-off chasing Lincoln.

After a handful of poor performances following the international break it was great to see that Latics we know is there against Lincoln.

This is a young side, that’s why performances can sometimes be inconsistent.

But when they have clicked they’ve shown they’re a match for anyone.

Safety was virtually assured against Blackpool – perhaps one of the reasons why performance levels have dipped in recent weeks but the draw with Charlton and the win on Saturday absolutely guaranteed our league one status.

It’s not what we’re used to in League One but it’s a huge achievement, make no doubt about that. Shaun Maloney, Stephen Crainey, Graham Barrow, Max Rogers and Gregor Rioch deserve all the plaudits that will undoubtedly come their way.

Off the pitch and Latics revealed season ticket prices for next season and they’ve been met with near universal approval.

A freeze for season ticket holders, discounts for Future Fund members and reductions in the price of kids tickets, whilst match day tickets next year have been reduced with a cap of £28 in place and the £30 category abolished.

The club have been roundly praised on consulting with supporters ahead of the release and despite comments from elsewhere it seems that the club is more than willing to take on feedback from supporters.

As well it was good to see Lucas Danson at the reveal last night.

To see the Danson family take an active role in the club like this can only settle people’s minds as the search for a CEO is still on-going.

Danson also confirmed despite reports to the contrary that budgets for next season were in place, along with targets for each position.

Listen, we know we’ve been to hell and back as supporters this last few years.

Two, well technically three failed ownership groups have made supporters wary of false promises but I believe the Danson family are in this for the right reasons.

There’s still an on-going cost of living crisis in this country and certainly in an area such as Wigan. To lay out over £300, more if you’re a family is a huge financial commitment to make.

But if you can afford to do so, invest in a season ticket for next season and show our owners and indeed our management what this club can do when it pulls together.
