Pre-Match Thoughts - Mike




Yet Another Proverbial Game Of Two Halves......


Every Town game seems to be going the same way, we either dominate and fail to win or outplay the opposition in the first half and capitulate after the break, Saturdays trip to Rotherham was most definitely in the latter category. I thought the first half was pretty decent and if we possessed a decent striker in the squad we would almost certainly have gone ahead inside ten minutes which would undoubtedly have piled the pressure onto the home team, sadly we have an inept p*sshead leading our line and sadly he can't hit a barn door from Two yards. Much of our play prior to the break was decent and we left the field at half time very much the better side. After the break was like chalk and cheese as we failed to get into any sort of rhythm or create hardly any chances, the One chance we did create was a superb lung busting run from Luke Woolfenden which resulted in Wes Burns stinging the hands of their keeper but even then had Woolfy played the right ball across we would almost certainly have gone ahead. I think it is fair to say that by the close of play we were beaten by the better side and got what we deserved for once again failing to capitalize when well on top.

Kieran Mckenna was once again very honest and open in his assessment after the game made it clear we all know where the shortcomings are and what needs addressing, he went on to say work has already began in these areas and I think it is safe to say we will see a different Town mentality come next August, let's face it if we could games to bed when we are on top and playing well we would in all probability have won every game since Mckenna took charge. I think we all pretty much know which players will form the core of our squad next season and which ones will probably have said their farewells in the Summer but One player has certainly come to the fore following his excellent League debut and that is Indonesian defender Elkan Baggott who for me was as good as anything in a Blue shirt at Rotherham, aside from being out of position once or twice early doors Baggott barely put a foot wrong and could well have staked a claim to see out the remaining games at the heart of the Town defence.

Of course we all have ideas on who we would keep and who we would let go but from my point of view I would be amazed if Joe Pigott, Macauley Bonne and James Norwood are here next season, for me all Three are pretty poor even at this level, Bonne got lucky early in the season and made the most of the excellent work Wes Burns was putting in to set up a fair few of his goals/chances, Norwood just does not do it for me and looks lazy, disinterested and always seems to be looking for trouble, Pigott sadly just looks sh*te. You can add Bersant Celina to that list, a luxury player and so overrated it's untrue, One good game and he's the messiah, Five poor one's and nothing is said. I also hope to see the back of Thompson and Carroll who for me are both hopeless and offer nothing.

The crux or my squad next season would be Walton, Donacien, Woolfenden, Edmundson, Baggott, Burns, Morsy, Chaplin, Aluko, add a good Five or Six top players to that squad and we will be there or there abouts, the jury remains out on the likes of Hladky, Penney, Burgess, KVY, Jackson, Evans, Bakinson, El Mizouni and Edwards, no doubt some will stay but a few could very well be on their way. I think the close season could well be more busy than I originally envisaged as KM definitely sees issues in the current squad and with the backing we have he will not be prepared to see so many games tossed away again.

Next up is our penultimate home game of the season and they don't come much tougher than the League leaders Wigan Athletic who are closing in on a return to the Championship, Six Points from Four games is all that is required and they will not be coming to Portman Road for a single point, they will want the win and this could just suit us too, we find it tough against teams that come here and shut up shop, we can expect a more open game which suits our style of play, the fact we have nothing but pride riding on it lifts the pressure too, I think this could well be a cracker for the neutral but I see it ending all square and a point apiece which won't be a bad result for Town. Not long to go now and the rebuild for our promotion season can begin. COYB'S





The Opposition – Wigan Athletic



Image



Founded in 1932, the club plays at the DW Stadium since 1999, sharing the stadium with rugby league club Wigan Warriors. They previously played at Springfield Park for 67 years.

Wigan Athletic played in the lower Leagues until 2nd June 1978 when they were finally elected to the Football League after 34 attempts and near misses over the preceeding 46 years, including one controversial but headline-making application in 1972 to join the Scottish League Second Division.

They gained their first Football League promotion under the management of former Liverpool player Larry Lloyd in 1981–82, when a points tally of 91 saw them join the former Division Three for the first time, beginning a 10-year spell in English football's third tier, until they were relegated for the first time in the club's League history in 1992–93.

Wigan struggled in the fourth tier of English Football, finishing well down the table and average attendences fell to 1,845 by 1995.

Local entrepreneur Dave Whelan acquired the club in 1995, providing funds to move into the JJB Stadium, now named the DW Stadium in his honour.

Through Whelan's business connections in Spain he attracted three Spaniards to the club – Roberto Martínez, Isidro Diaz, and Jesus Seba – who became known as 'The Three Amigos'.

Whelan appointed John Deehan as manager during the 1995–96 season. Deehan took the Latics within two points of a play-off place in his first season; and the following year Wigan Athletic became Division Three champions.

In the summer of 2001, highly regarded young manager Paul Jewell took over as manager. His first season in charge saw mixed results, but Jewell's second season in charge was far more successful. Wigan Athletic went on a run to the quarter finals of the League Cup, and won the Division Two championship, securing promotion to the second tier of the English Football League for the first time in their history.

After losing their first ever game in Division One, Wigan Athletic confounded expectations to go unbeaten for the next 17 games and and finish seventh in Division One.

The following season in the last fixture at home the Latics won promotion to the top division of the English football for the first time in their 73-year history by finishing second in the League.

The club's first ever Premier League season (2005-06) saw a 10th place, which remains the club's highest ever league placing.

Over the next four seasons Wigan struggled for Premier survival with a number of managers taking the helm over this period.

Wigan appointed Roberto Martínez, then manager of Swansea City, as manager prior to the 2009–10 Premier League season.

At the beginning of the 2010–11 season, Wigan fell to the bottom of the league by the end of February. However, despite remaining in the bottom three for the majority of the season, Wigan managed to retain their Premier League status on the last day of the season.

In the 2011-12 season Wigan reached the FA Cup Final for the first time in their history and went on to beat Manchester City 1–0, with a goal in injury time, earning a place in the following seasons Europa League. Unfortunately for Wigan this season also ended their eight year spell in the Premier League and they became the first team to be relegated and win the FA Cup in the same season.

On 14 June 2013, Dave Whelan revealed that a deal had been agreed with Owen Coyle to become the new manager of Wigan Athletic replacing outgoing manager Roberto Martinez who left for Everton. Coyle left the club by mutual agreement on 2 December 2013 having won seven games out of twenty-three. Uwe Rosler replaced him on 7 December.

On 9 March 2014 Wigan beat Manchester City in the 6th Round of the FA Cup to reach the semi-final at Wembley for the second successive year, where they played Arsenal, and lost on penalties after normal time and extra time resulted in a 1–1 draw. After finishing 5th in the Championship, Wigan lost their Championship play-off semi-final to Queens Park Rangers.

Rösler was sacked in November 2014 with the club in the relegation places, and was replaced by Malky Mackay. Whelan resigned as chairman on 3 March 2015, remaining as owner but handing over the chairmanship to his grandson David Sharpe. The following month, with Wigan in danger of relegation to League One, Mackay was sacked and replaced by former Wigan captain Gary Caldwell, yet the team ended the season with relegation.

Over the coming summer the club underwent a transformation with the majority of the playing staff that had been relegated leaving and a raft of new signings arriving.

The club soon found themselves challenging for promotion in the play-off places by mid-November. Following an impressive run of form in the second half of the season where the side lost only once in 23 matches the club effectively sealed promotion at the first attempt.


In October 2016, following a poor start to the season, Caldwell was sacked as manager and replaced by Manchester United coach Warren Joyce. Results did not improve under Joyce, who was sacked in March 2017. Wigan were subsequently relegated back to League One in April and interim manager Graham Barrow left, ending a 15-year association with the club.

Paul Cook, who had just won League Two with Portsmouth, was appointed Wigan manager in June 2017.

The 2017/18 season was a good one for Wigan, the club finished 1st in League One and were promoted to the Championship. They reached the FA Cup quarterfinals after beating Premier League teams, Bournemouth, West Ham United and Premier League champions Manchester City. At the end of the season it was announced that the Whelan family had agreed a deal to sell the club, stadium and training facilities to the Hong Kong based International Entertainment Corporation in a £22m deal.

In the 2018–19 season, Wigan finished 18th in the Championship with 52 points, well clear of the relegation zone.

On 4 June 2020, IEC sold the majority of Wigan Athletic shareholdings to Hong Kong-based Next Leader Fund; the sale was formally ratified and approved by the shareholders of IEC, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and the EFL. On 1 July 2020, the club - standing 14th in the Championship, eight points clear of relegation, in a season delayed due the COVID-19 pandemic - announced it had gone into administration as Next Leader Fund had refused to invest promised money.

On 4 July, Wigan, previously unbeaten in nine games, lost 3–0 at Brentford. Three days later, on 7 July, 75, around half, of the club's non-playing staff were made redundant by the administrators.

Meanwhile, on 7 July 2020 the club had appealed against the 12-point deduction imposed by the EFL for entering administration. On 14 July, Wigan recorded their biggest League victory, beating Hull City 8–0. This, combined with other results, meant Wigan would not finish in the relegation places, so the 12-point deduction would be applied at the end of the current season. Wigan's appeal against the points deduction, heard on 31 July, was set to cost the club between £400,000 and £500,000. Wigan drew 1–1 against Fulham in their final game of the season; the 12-point deduction pushed Wigan into the bottom three, meaning the club would play in League One if its appeal was unsuccessful. On 4 August, the club's relegation was confirmed and, following the resignation of manager Paul Cook, Leam Richardson was appointed caretaker manager.

On 17 August 2020, it was reported that Au Yeung Wai Kay, the club's owner, had, on 23 June, asked Begbies Traynor about putting it into administration before completing his takeover. Begbies Traynor disputed the account, produced by an independent commission, saying administration was one of several scenarios discussed. The commission said Kay was "not open" with Wigan officials about his conversation with Begbies Traynor, and subsequently gave "either false or knowingly misleading" assurances about future funding. The administrator was still attempting to find a buyer; if no agreement was reached by 31 August, Begbies Traynor said it would have to consider whether the club can be funded into the 2020–21 season, due to start on Saturday 12 September 2020. On 20 August, Kay was reported to be waiving a £36m debt owed to him by the club in an effort to expedite its sale. Wigan supporters began a fund-raising effort, initially raising £500,000 to help secure the club's future, and then raising £200,000 more. Administrators had been confident a sale would be agreed by their deadline, but later revised their opinion.

On 9 September 2020, with the club's situation set to be discussed at an EFL meeting, the administrators were reportedly "quietly optimistic" about Wigan being allowed to start the EFL season despite being ownerless. They appointed John Sheridan as the club's new manager, who was in charge as Wigan lost their first League game of the season 2–0 at Ipswich Town. On 21 September, the administrators reported that bids would need to top £3m to secure the sale as the club had a "considerable liability" to HM Revenue and Customs, owed wages to players, and also had to pay for August's unsuccessful appeal against the points deduction.

On 30 September, the administrators said they had reached an agreement with an unnamed bidder from Spain to purchase the club, and were working on paperwork to gain EFL approval. In early November, former Wigan manager Roberto Martinez was reported to assisting with the Spanish bid. On 13 November, after three wins in 15 Wigan games, manager Sheridan left to become Swindon Town's new manager. On 20 November, additional time was granted to the prospective new owners to complete their purchase. In early December, with the club bottom of League One, it emerged that a member of the Spanish consortium had a disqualifying condition, so Wigan's administrators had to make a fresh application to the EFL on behalf of Felipe Moreno, owner of Spanish LaLiga 2 side Leganés.

However, on 5 January 2021, the Moreno take-over bid fell through; administrators began talking to other bidders, with, on 15 January 11 parties said to be interested in buying the club. By early March 2021, the administrators were in advanced talks with a consortium, Phoenix 2021 Ltd, led by a Bahrain businessman, Talal Mubarak al-Hammad, and a takeover was agreed on 15 March, subject to EFL approval and finalisation of paperwork. Under the proposed deal, Al-Hammad will become chairman, and Mal Brannigan (previously involved with Dundalk and Dundee United) will be chief executive. EFL approval for the takeover was confirmed on 30 March 2021. In May, the former administrators repaid £171,000 raised by supporters to keep the club going when it first went into administration. The club finished the 2020–21 season in 20th position, one point above the relegation places.

I imagine both Keane and Edwards will be extremely smug on there return to Town. So for that reason alone I want Town to win. But we won't if any of the following start. Norwood, Piggott, Carroll and Thompson :(

I can see a reaction of sorts from the so-called goal scorers. Think the open game will suit us and we’ll score.

Time to blood some under 23's against Wigan, Humphries, Baggot, Simpson, Yengie,
But don't select Bonne, Norwood, Piggott, Caroll, or Thompson.

Sometimes it’s with nothing to play for when you get an unexpected performance especially when the opposition has the pressure of needing a result.

If this game is available to purchase on ifollow, will definitely do that if Simpson is named in the team or the bench. MUST SEE what Ashford thinks he can do in an Ipswich shirt........ seen the YouTube stuff......, let's see the Ipswich stuff.

Now that we have nothing to play for it wouldn't surprise me if we were to beat Wigan tonight, it would be slightly ironic given how many times this season we've managed to get ourselves into a decent position only to then lose the next, very winnable game and with it our momentum.

We have zero goal threat . Our players don’t attack the ball in their box with any conviction whatsoever.

Question : why aren’t our defenders piling in there and trying to get in the end of corners?

Oh for a Luke Chambers or Tommy Smith .

That challenge on Penney, he knew what he was doing, same as that 'piece' trying to wind Morsy up, just calm down, Morsy was lucky though as he clearly put his head towards his.

Do lots of good work, playing better than them just need to sort those set plays and get some some lads in who know how to score.

Bonne is about as much use as a chocolate angle grinder.

Their player is lucky there’s no VAR because he’d be done for simulation . Morsy dipped his head forward but was nowhere near him . Wigan player goes down like a Platoon actor . Utter tossa and once again we are not street wise .

Morsy was nowhere near that player. He went down like a sack of s... I mean coal!!

Honestly the referee had no idea just booked Morsy on reputation, The ref is not costing the game though, if you cannot work their keeper having 6 corners then well, you get what you deserve

Sacks of coal, chocolate angle grinders and platoon actors………. It actually sounds quite entertaining.
