    One last thing, I love the way the club are currently bragging on social media about 42% of the current first team players been from the youth system
    Great
    But let’s face it that wasn’t a choice that was forced upon us. Had we not been in the sh!tpit we were none of those would have played including Tickle and Hughes and Adeeko.

    This youth setup players coming through is something alot of Latics fans have been screaming at the club to do since way back to Whelan taking over.

    Whelan promised us a youth set up to die for but put it all on the back burner in pursuit of Premiership glory and retain our status.
    While we were in the Prem Whelan should have invested some of that Premiership money into a Cat1 academy and who knows things might have turned out different had we done so and might have bounced back up a year or two later
