I first visited Reading on a Tuesday night when they played at Elm Park. A £20 train fare, the only complication being that the return trip involved getting the overnight sleeper to Carlisle. Then first train of the day to Wigan, arriving at 07:43 after which I quickly went home, got changed and went to […]
What? You mean the football season is still going? I thought we’d decided we were declaring for this year before things get any worse.
Was that a little glimpse of the old Wigan Athletic coming back on Saturday afternoon? No, I don’t mean getting nilled at home after an abject performance. Again. I mean that there was some semblance of play and cohesion to our game. The back four looked a bit more comfortable keeping hold of a ball […]
I wasn’t overly distraught over Warren Joyce being relieved of his duties. I felt very sorry for him, both because it wasn’t working out and I don’t like to see anybody lose their job.
I can safely say I’ve never seen anything as dismal as that performance at Blackburn on Saturday. The only matches that even come close were a few of those that immediately preceded it.
Well, Tuesday night was a turn up for the books? Or a turn up for the BUX if you prefer! (You can use that next time he scores, Mr Kendrick) I have perhaps been guilty of lacking a bit of faith in performances away from home. It’s been evident all season that we struggle to […]
If you’d have asked the average Wigan Athletic fan – of which I consider myself one – a couple of weeks ago if we were going to stop up, then I feel confident that you’d have got an unequivocal YES! Unfortunately with disappointing results since then and two tricky away games to negotiate next, I […]
As week’s go I dont think Wigan Athletic will have faced a busier one in recent times. Let’s start off at Old Trafford – in all honesty I was a bit disappointed on Sunday. The buzz around the tie before hand and the amount of upsets on Saturday had given the Latics faithful the hope […]
Well, we only went and won a football match didn’t we? It may have been in the cup and Nottingham Forest may have been absolutely diabolical but we applied ourselves and played very well, thanks in no small part to the return of Sam Morsy.

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 […]
