Looking up

It’s amazing the difference a week can make for a football club. Last Friday will go down as one of the most dramatic we’ve had as a club as the fallout following Will Grigg’s move to Sunderland was fully laid bare. We’ll be discussing whether it was the right call for years to come –

Farewell Will

Farewell Will

What a night! It’s been a strange old week in the world of Wigan Athletic. It was another disappointing result for Latics, on the road with last Saturday’s defeat to Nottingham Forest. Latics certainly pressed more than at the City Ground than they had in the previous week at Hillsborough but the end result was

The rumours just won’t go away that Sunderland are after our prized centre forward. So long as I get copyright on the “Will Grigg’s on Wear, our fans are terrified” punchline, Mr Kendrick. In fact, it’s a shame he’s not being linked with Fleetwood, as “Will Grigg’s on Wyre” works much better. See, you have

Probably due to its overuse by certain Wigan Athletic managers that should be left firmly in the past – I’m looking at you Malky, Warren and Owen. But for this week fine margins is most definitely a suitable phrase. After the

We need to talk

We need to talk

We need to talk about Latics, we need to talk about this fantastic side that has been assembled this season and we sadly need to talk about the support that this side receive. Let’s establish a few facts before we go on, Wigan Athletic do fantastically well in terms of crowd numbers and have done

Living the FA Cup dream

Living the FA Cup dream

No fans, no history, tin-pot, rugby town, empty seats the insults are well versed and we’ve heard them all a million times before. Curiously more than often these very same insults come from supporters of clubs that you would expect to have some sort of alignment to little Wigan. Clubs of a similar size, clubs
