    I seem to remember a game at home at the end of the 1995-96 season against Northampton Town.
    Whelan had backed the then manager John Deehan very heavily in the transfer market and expectations were starting to rise.
    Lost narrowly 2-1 and failed to make the play offs by a very narrow margin.
    My main memory of this was after the game when a WIGAN RL fan was stood on his gate gloating at the very silent crowd as it passed his house near the ground.
    He made then made a daft comment which was responded to very sharply with “ at least we’re not f*****g bankrupt” at which point the Rugby man beat a fast retreat as the grog was making moves to fill him in.
