As a child the FA Cup was everything. The very first one I vividly remember was Charlie George scoring the winner in 71.
The FA Cup then was a magical event. Up on the Saturday at 8am to watch the full day from the players leaving the hotel till 5pm when the trophies lifted
I always would hark on about when Leeds knocked us out all those years back blaming the wind and I thought our chance had gone forever.
Who else remembers stood at someone’s terraced house living room window near the ground watching the draw ?, or rushing back the pub for it.
That day back in 2013 will be forever etched in every Wigan fans memory till the day they die.
It wasn’t just winning it it was against who at the time were unstoppable.
Celebrate the day and to think were not that far off a 10 year celebration is a scary thought,
