188SPORT’s ‘Moments In Time’ initiative, encourages Wigan Athletic fans to vote on their all-time favourite game-changing moments. We have scoured around and have gathered the views of some ex-players and managers.

This online campaign draws on how a specific moment, whether a 30-yard thunderbolt, an injury-time equaliser, a last-gasp tackle or a goal-keeping blunder, can change the course, and ultimately the outcome of a football match.

The online forum features exclusive content from Wigan Athletic club legends and ambassadors, including Matt Jackson detailing his favourite ‘Moments In Time’ playing for the club. But the site is designed for football fans of all ages to join in the debate, simply by uploading their own moments or commenting on others.

Roberto Martinez declares his favourite moment as the 2009-10 Premier League comeback against Arsenal

“One of the best comebacks in Premier League history.

“The players stood face to face with a talented Arsenal side, and showed great ability to beat them in style.”

Do you agree with Roberto, or do you have your own memory that sticks out more?



Matt Jackson declares one of his favourite moments as New Years Day 2003 v Notts County H 3-1 win 2002-3 season


“Notts County score a late consolation which ended our run of 8 (!!) consecutive clean sheets and although we were 3-0 up at the time, we were all gutted and it was silent in the dressing room afterwards.

“That was the realization though that we had a special team developing when standards were that high.”
