    Paul Jewell’s reign; without a doubt.
    I came away from games feeling exhausted, as if I’d actually played in the game itself.
    No other Wigan Manager compares.

    Now, my mates have to wake me up and say “come on Paps, it’s time to go home”, so the current band of happy clappers have never seen the real Latics.

    Ah, remember it well and still got the Season Highlights DVDs !!!
    Don’t think I’ll be adding to the DVD collection this year, if they dare to produce one.
    Anyway, good times are just around the corner.

      Funny enough I had the same conversation with a contractor at work the other day about how we play now compared to when Jewell was at the helm.

      Great days!

      Fuck the EFL

        Ironically , in his first season back at Latics Jewell could only finish 10th in Division One. Dave Whelan decided to keep faith in his young Manager as he slowly re built the squad. He reaped the rewards the following season as Latics stormed the League with 100 points. Admittedly he was backed by Whelans millions but you have to give Managers time to build their squad. Let’s see how Maloney does next season .

            The team of the mid 80’s were superb to watch.
            Unfortunately we couldn’t get 4000 of the “sport loving Wiganers” through the turnstiles, and those that did turn up still slated every mistake.

              For me the 2008-2009 season n squad was the most exciting. The likes of Zaki Heskey Valencia just to name a few.
              0-5 at Hull 5 shots on target 5 goals. Thelate draw up Newcastle and Zaki’s screamer at Liverpool.
              We finished 11th that season after going down the nick after Christmas.

              I’m convinced had we not have sold the likes of Heskey to Villa, Palacios to Spurs and Kilbane to Hull in January we would have made Europe that year for sure.

              It was definitely our best Prem side finishing 11th in the Premiership.
