Wigan Athletic seem to have more than their fair share of idiot fans at the moment, I wont use the word supporter because being a supporter means getting behind the team, giving encouragement, someone who backs the team, someone who stands by the team in difficult times and offers support, what we seem to have is a bucket load of hysterical idiots driven by some crazy idea that in their world Wigan Athletic should be top of the Premier League.
Six games into the season and six points in the bag, we have played Manchester United (lost every previous meeting) and Arsenal away (lost every previous away game at Arsenal) and suddenly we are relegation certainties and have a clown for a manager?
I believe we have clowns for fans, we sit 13th in the league in the next few weeks we play:
Hull, Burnley, Portsmouth, Fulham, Sunderland, Birmingham, Bolton and Blackburn, all very much winnable games and all before Christmas, perhaps after this little lot we should have a look how our season is going before getting ready to jump off the top of the stands in the middle of September.
Internet message boards, forums and terrace talk is criticising manager Roberto Martinez, ridiculing his team and going completely over the top in calling for a change of management
I would say get a grip, you call yourselves supporters so start acting like one and stop the knee jerk, frankly embarrassing reaction that is making us a little bit of a laughing stock.
Talking to mates from other areas and supporters of other clubs they cant believe the reaction that is going on at the moment, there were cries of all this doom during the close season and it`s got worse, in all honesty what was expected? A top four slot?
We are sitting mid-table and have a decent run of games in front of us, for goodness sake get a grip.21 September 2009 at 12:27 am #9315Vat69Player

Load of rubbish.
The same guy will be panicking, in April.
I quote: “Hull, Burnley, Portsmouth, Fulham, Sunderland, Birmingham, Bolton and Blackburn, all very much winnable games and all before Christmas, perhaps after this little lot we should have a look how our season is going before getting ready to jump off the top of the stands in the middle of September.”
I agree with that. (Only part I did agree with)
But in all honesty, for anybody that is reading this, and TRULY, I mean ASK yourself this in your heart of hearts, how many points will we pick up from those games?
I’m going for 6, maximum. Let’s see, shall we?
We’ll have a good idea, come November.
