They don’t like it up em

Three games, three points.

The frustrating thing is it could and probably should have been even more, in each game so far we’ve arguably had the better of the play, even against the supposed favourites for the league we had chances to win it.

But to be unbeaten, three weeks in to the season is no mean feat either. It shows a resilience among this side that’s so important at this level.

I had to laugh at Nigel Pearson’s histrionics at the end of last week’s match. Similar to Dean Smith the previous week down at Norwich, to paraphrase Corporal Jones “they don’t like it up em” and it shows that little Wigan continue to rattle the so called big boys in this division.

The arrival of Ashley Fletcher is an interesting one, a striker who’s proven at this level and has moved for big money in recent years. If we can get him firing he could be an astute signing for us.

It’s back on the road on Saturday, with all roads leading down the M6 to Birmingham.

Birmingham seem to have escaped the comedy clutches of Laurence Bassini and made a decent start to the season, it’s going to need us to be at our best to get anything but these lads are more than capable.

With over 1500 heading down to a sold out away end during the midst of a national train strike it makes a mockery of the net nerds and their ‘sh*t support’ nonsense.

Wiganer’s will give their all to this club and those lads on the pitch are doing their best to repay that support.
