    It’s the first away of many I’ve been were Wigan’s fans could be heard been very angry with the players and manager.
    I’ve said it before, LR in previous games left players on to the death when we were 2 3 goals in front and not making changes (Bolton at home) bringing fresh legs on decided not to.
    Playing a not fit Cousins from the start rather than wean him in is just another to add to a catalogue of wtf from the manager and as for Aasguaard ?, better ask him what he’s done wrong.
    Last night was the highlight of managerial errors not utilising our squad when possible which in turn left us with a bunch of players who looked like they’ve run back to back marathons for a month.
    I shall be in the ground on Saturday and hopefully get the job done but should we f##k on a granular style then there would be only one guy to blame.

    Understand the word “manager” before you start sprouting off about Richardson. It’s about (in his case) managing players playtime on field time and not managing our players on field time is now showing for all to see.

    I’m sorry but were now paying the price for poor player management very poor and Saturday will be in the words of The Chase a “1 question shootout”.

    I’m angry because this could have been avoidable with simple changes throughout the season, resting and utilising our players better.
    Richardson? Cracking / brilliant coach,
    Sh1t manager

    I don’t see Saturday as a “1 question shoot-out”! The table shows that we are almost certainly guaranteed promotion on Saturday.

    I’ve never been bothered whether we win this league or not as long as we get automatic promotion. As long as we don’t lose heavily on Saturday, we are as good as in the Championship already.

    Looking at the table as it stands after last night’s defeat, if we lose on Saturday by one goal, MK Dons have to beat a Plymouth side (who need to win to guarantee a play-off place) by SIX goals! And even if we lose, if we scored at Shrewsbury, then the number of goals that MK Dons would have to score to be promoted would also increase, because currently we have six more goals than them in the for column as well!

    So, although things are never over until “the fat lady sings”, statistically I’m not sure that we would fall out of the automatic places – that would require one heck of a collapse on our part!

    LR’s job as a manager was to get the best out of these players – I think whether we agree or disagree on his acumen as a manager, we cannot argue the fact that with one game left, we do have one foot over the line and I can’t see that we will denied promotion by 2.30 on Saturday afternoon!!!

    We have played something like nine games in twenty nine days ,sixty games this season have recently lost McClean and Tilt through injury so it’s not exactly unexpected that we have been struggling recently.Fatigue is definitely affecting the team ,however ,we will get it done on Saturday, come on Latics !

    “I’ve never been bothered if we win the League or not”

    Holy flying f##ks from heaven, that statement rings a bell from 2013 when I herd the same bellend remark regarding winning the FA Cup or staying up. Some had written us off and preferred a win at Arsenal over City, those people were dickheads of the highest order.

    Winnings trophy’s for players and fans is what creates great memoires not 2nd places.

    Do me a favor, shake your head violently till you knock some sense into yourself. You’ve basically saying I hope MK get done.

    Right now were 1 game off WINNING YES WINNING the League and you wouldn’t be bothered if we lost????? just as long as MK screw up?. Jesus ter night you need help m8

    I sit here is utter disbelief wondering that your meds are all wrong.

    Ah, never mind – there really is no point posting on any of your threads, is there? I was questioning your “1 question shoot out” remark and trying to show that, in my opinion, come 2.30pm on Saturday afternoon we will be promoted to the Championship! That, based on the last couple of years, is a remarkable achievement, and the one constant through that whole time has been LR and his commitment to getting this club back where it belongs!

    I disagree with your comments about his abilities as a manager, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so I would never sink to the kind of language that you seem to use in your posts to describe anyone who dares to differ.

    Come what may, I will be celebrating on Saturday afternoon, when WAFC are rightly restored to the place we were a couple of years ago! I hope you managed to get a ticket for the game and will be there to give LR a heartfelt pat on the back when he has pulled off a marvellous feat with his total lack of managerial skills!

    Look I’m a life long Latics fans end of but Portsmouth away just didn’t happen it was a combination of a lot of mistakes made by our manager:-

    Lincoln 1-3 up 72mins … Leaves Lang on all the game the full 94mins

    Accrington home 3-0 57mins
    Subs Lang 81
    Keane 90 ?? Explain get key players off ,rest.

    Morecombe home 4-1 up 68mins
    Leaves Keane on till the end brings Edwards on 88th min, why ??

    Crewe away 0-2
    Keane plays full 90 instead takes Humphrys off 78 a guy who’s itching for 90 minutes under his belt.

    McClean at Bolton, was on a yellow first half and then made 2 more tackles just before the half time which were borderline for a 2nd yellow.
    He comes out for the 2nd half and the Bolton players are straight into him waiting for him to react and a second yellow which nearly happened.

    For me McCleans brilliant full on for 60-65 mins then he tends to fade or gas abit. He should have been replaced at half time with all that went on in the 1st half but Richardson keeps him on the full 90 and he ends up picking up a bad knock keeping out ever since.

    As for Aasguaard?, brings him on for Cousins against Shrewsbury and he hits an injury time winner.

    Now he’s back fit, never used, a lad who has the skill to change a game in the blink of an eye with a bit of magic Richardson clearly doesn’t think so or he would have been used since he’s been back.

    And that’s not mentioning all the games were he shoehorned Shinnie in the middle at the expense of Power and Darwika into unfamiliar positions making the side totally unbalanced, what the hell was Richardson thinking??. One man and his dog could see Darikwa looked like a duck out of water and for a few games we played some of our worse football of the season.

    Richardson then saw the error of his ways and rectified it that was until the home game against Cambridge were he’s back to his old tricks.

    It was like he was trying to prove a point to everyone that he knows best and it will work and I will show you lot, look n learn and we go in and lose when a point from that game would have sent us up.

    And finally the long ball to Magennis who loses far more than he wins. Even Hull fans have said, why ??. He’s a player who’s goals have come from crosses from wide position’s similar to Pearce’s balls in at Portsmouth. Magennis has shown this at home and Crewe away.

    With it been such a long season and us relying on keys players the likes of Lang and Keane Richardson insisted on playing players to the death when we were clearly in control of games and a few goals ahead.

    And now?,  we have a team who are over the top fitness wise, all fatigued no doubt lots carrying strains and knocks combinating in a collapse in recent games Pompey away been the highlight that 2nd half we had nothing left to give.

    I’ll repeat myself again, as a coach I think Richardson is excellent and he’s coached the side brilliant but there’s another side to been a manager and it’s the ability to manage players resting and subbing at the key moments. This bit is were he terribly lacks in experience and he makes some very poor in play management decision’s.
    These have tumbleweeded into an end of season collapse.

    We are only in the position because this League is poor that’s a fact, very poor and because those clubs who are sat just below us are sh#tter than us.

    We have had 2 wins from our last 8 games and were still 2pts clear? beggar’s belief.

    I think Richardson is the luckiest manager alive to be were we are with the way were playing right now. Had 2 or 3 of those sides below us took advantage just the odd win here and there (as clubs normally do) we’d be play-offs at our best.

    1 win is all we need Saturday 1win. Not a point as some have said

    1F##kin win

    There were a lot of angry people at Pompey, treating the last 4 games as how our season has been.

    They are embarrassing and need to shake their head.

    Away a lot, but always watching

    That’s because it didn’t need to be like that in the last 4 games. Simple tweaking the side and results I’m sure would have been different.
    I went and tbh I was angry and I was fully within my rights watching a 2 nil lead been thrown away.
    Did you expect people to walk off the ground laughing and smiling after a 500 round trip ?.
    I’m sorry but I couldn’t think of how we beat Bolton away when I was leaving Pomepys ground.

    Have to agree with cup winners comments on LR’s substitutions. Unfathomable at times particularly when in control of games and with a comfortable lead. The McLean one against Bolton, the way we utilise Magennis and his set up against Cambridge all left a lot of us baffled. Still he has got us into an enviable final game position so I hope he sets us up to stamp our name for a 4th time on the league 1 trophy. Simply go for the 3pts from the off….let our dogs off the leash…..and if all not quite working then make positive attack orientated substitutions. LR certainly has got it right a lot more than he’s got it wrong as the table shows………and he will again Saturday !!

    Can’t believe how twitchy Ive felt since the Portsmouth result. Counting the hours down to 12:30 Saturday. Last time I felt this jittery was the 6 minutes after the famous Wembley goal. That was 6 minutes……this is over 3 days of it !!!!

    Well it ain’t overwith just yet. I’m sure 6 goal difference is too much and were lucky who MK Dons have and away.
    For those who just want promotion ? your in a small minority amongst Latics fans.

    Ask the players, would you be happy after 46 games missing out on the League via a point but hey, your going up,
    I’m pretty much sure most would say Am I f##k

    Nobody likes coming second, nobody. Let’s go to Shrewsbury and bang a hatfull in and
    get ratted.

    F*** the let’s get a point. This is a 1 game winner takes all. Why the hell would anyone want Mk to falter rather than us top this league is gross stupidity .We are virtually up,so that is in the bag…..now for the top prize. Certainly the players won’t be playing for 2nd ,as McCleans comments prove. Let’s make one humongous final statement to the football community, Efl,the so called “Big clubs” sitting below us and more importantly to our town that yet again we have achieved the impossible .We have risen from near oblivion to top our league in 1 season and return to where we rightly belong………let’s finish with a bang and smash them….
