    Is it right that a Statue unveiling is happening on Dave Whelan’s 80th Birthday? Is the rumour also right he is naming the Ground the ‘Wigan Athletic Stadium’ as well?

    That would be a perfect name for the Stadium but DW Stadium is a free advert for the business that could cost Mr Whelan a fortune. Wouldn’t make sense for him but yes a perfect name choice.

    They might change it The Wigan Stadium but can’t see them adding the Athletic.

    Shame though as it would do my facebook fishing a World of good.

    Have I missed something? What statue is this?

    I noticed some work going on outside main reception on Saturday but didn’t think much of it.

    Anybody care to enlighten me?

    I know it’s his birthday but shame this is beind done on a weekday. Would have been a good curtain raiser to our next home game.

    I’ll just have to take that route home and go have a look.

    The statue is courtesy of Wigan Athletic FC. Would be nice if this could be reciprocated in the town centre by Wigan Council.
