QPR | Lady Luck Lifts Latics

It has been another controversial week at QPR. Neil Warnock suggested that the Carling Cup is of no interest to Premier League clubs. This comment after a despicably poor performance against League One's Rochdale angered fans who had paid £15 to watch; in hindsight a game Warnock never intended to win. The mood of the fans lifted, however when on Friday the most unlikely of signings; Joey Barton joined for free on a suspected £60-80,000 a week salary; this almost …

City V Wigan | 3 Points to Keep in Mind

Heading in to week 4 after a nearly perfect start that includes the emergence of Edin Dzeko as the EPL’s top scorer, stellar pick-ups of goal scorer Sergio Aguero and former Gunner Samir Nasri, and a dominant and cohesive midfield, City faces a Wigan side that has yet to lose this season. City’s start to the season has been so great, even the Tevez problems have vanished in the minds of fans. Of course, a simple and efficient way of …

Moses impact | Wigan fail to make a mark

The season is finally here and the inevitable finally happened with Charles N'Zogbia leaving for Aston Villa but have Wigan already found a replacement for Charles N'Zogbia? In Victor Moses Wigan have a young player that not only has bags of pace and potential but also has experience at Wigan in the Premiership.

Swansea | Taking steps forward ?

Swansea City undoubtedly have a lot to thank Roberto Martinez for, a play maker in the bottom tier who brought culture to a poor side, an inspirational captain through the clubs most turbulent times, and a manager who established a style of play which delighted fans and caught the attention of the national media. However it would be fair to say that both club and manager have moved on since his departure. Martinez has now had two seasons in the …

Wigan Athletic, inCONSISTENT at best?

Wigan Athletic, inCONSISTENT at best?

The only thing I am not looking forward to about the start of the new season is Mark Lawrenson. Not that I have anything personally against the man, it is his lazy evaluation of Wigan Athletics’ chances in the upcoming fixtures through the medium of ‘Lawro’s Predictions’, that has got my beef. [caption id="attachment_2083" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Here he is, the man in question."][/caption] Fans of other clubs may have never picked up on, been bothered enough to take notice or …
Wigan Athletic | The end of the beginning or the beginning of the end?

Wigan Athletic | The end of the beginning or the beginning of the end?

Another season, another last day survival for Wigan Athletic. Tipped by many to go down every year since being in the Premiership Wigan Athletic continue to defy their critics (although making hard work of it). Now entering their 7th Season in the Premiership Wigan started the summer with rumours of young Spanish Manager Roberto Martinez being linked with the then vacant managers job at Aston Villa. Thankfully Roberto Martinez turned down the opportunity to sign for Villa and stayed at …
