I’ve spoken so much about turning points this season that we must have done a nine point turn over the course of the opening months of the season. Was Monday a turning point? It certainly felt like it. Warren Joyce’s first victory as Latics manager wasn’t pretty but my was it needed. If we had […]
There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Not that this is a practice I have ever performed, nor would I recommend any readers do so unless they happen to be employed as a taxidermist.
The King is Dead! Long live…er King Warren! Do you remember when ex-Latics custodian, that nice Nigel Adkins had catapulted Scunthorpe up the leagues, left them in the lurch to join Southampton and then repeated the exact same feat with the Saints?
I hope you know what you’re doing. That was my first reaction to the sacking of Gary Caldwell. There seems to be more than a suggestion that it wasn’t just David Sharpe’s decision to remove Caldwell from his post as they had always had such a cordial relationship. It has been a poor start to […]
I was listening to the commentary on Tuesday night when co-commentator and Latics’ Head of Media, Ed Jones uttered the immortal words, “well I don’t think anyone can be critical of that performance”. I hope you didn’t log on to social media on the way home Ed!
A relegation battle? This isn’t what we ordered was it! And we may not be in one yet but the next few games look particularly daunting and points may be at a premium somewhat. Sheffield Wednesday are as ever sat perpetually on the edge of either greatness or financial meltdown, set against the backdrop of […]
Anyone of a certain age might remember a children’s gameshow called Runaround hosted by a gravel voiced pre-Eastenders Mike Reid, who implored the kids to “Run-arrrraaannnd” in that comedy Cockney accent and find a corner to put themselves into.
Such a perfect day. I may well have drank Sangria, albeit not in the park. Talk about a season that slowly gained momentum until it turned into an absolutely deafening crescendo. A crescendo consisting mainly of deliriously happy Latics fans singing “Will Grigg’s on Fire” in the pubs of Blackpool and Wigan until the early […]
There is a discussion which keeps doing the rounds this year involving comparisons to the 2002/03 season, the year when we really did “smash it”. Even though it’s an inevitable thing to bring up, I must admit I cringe a little bit every time I read it. Mainly because many football clubs do not encounter […]
Is everyone happy then? Well as we moved up from 5th to 4th last week then you’d assume so. However, the fact that we only drew with “lowly” Crewe and Burton won one of their games in hand midweek seems to have tempered the mood somewhat. Failing to take three points at Crewe wasn’t ideal […]
