    I can’t decide whether I am sad or angry about some of the behaviour of our fans last night.

    I understand people being peeved over Jordi Gomez’s apparent lack of confidence and I for one don’t think giving a player a hard time helps that problem. However everyone has a right to state their opinion.

    What they should never do is racially abuse a player, and that kind of abuse for a footballer playing in our own blue and white stripes is totally out of order. The person in question close to me in the East was sitting with his wife and kid. Things were heated but to call one of our lads a “greasy haired Spanish b…..” and a “spic” was plain wrong. I looked over and he looked embarrassed and, to be honest, if he had carried on I would have had a lot to say to him.

    But it is not the first time I have heard comments like that in East 6.

    Gomez looked out of sorts when he came on last night, but by that stage the whole team had lost its shape. I think there were a couple of reasons for this:

    1. Stoke played 100% better in the second half
    2. McCarthy had left the pitch

    I can understand Bob trying to stick to a system and bringing Gomez on while pushing Hugo forward was an attempt to stabilise a sticky situation. It didn’t work, but a hell of a lot of that was because Stoke had built up a real head of steam.

    There is a problem at Latics at present and that is down to how our lads are coping with teams who want to battle. To be fair I think last night was the best battling performance by Latics in recent months. Things were going against them and they had lost a bit of form but they stuck at it.

    I want them to stay in the Prem and I will continue to shout my support with the odd outburst of frustration. What I will not accept from other “fans” is personal and racist attacks on our own players.

    I have been involved in a lot of rows and fights over this team and I will continue to back whoever wears our shirt.

    Think I heard the ‘greasy-haired’ comment as well.

    I also heard somebody saying last night that:

    “We’ve got too many lazy jiggaboo’s in this team”. :shock:

    No need for the booing either. not sure how many people or what parts the booing was in but at the final whistle there were people booing (in es3 at least). Pointless.

    Also one of the guys at the side of me stood up and said ‘get off you lazy bastard’ and other things abusive aimed a Jordi Gomez, just had to say ‘that’s gunna improve his game, great’… very sarcastically to my mate. That was when I decided to stand up for most of the match every time Gomez got the ball shouting ‘Go on gomez’. He will come good! Keep the faith!

    It was a strange atmosphere at the end. After the booing a lot of folk were clapping the team off but others were shuffling past looking a bit sheepish.

    I have always cheered the team off to show my appreciation of their efforts and I remember it being part and parcel of supporting the team in the lower divisions.

    Is it just some of the JCLs and their unreasonably high expectations who insist on booing?

    This thread has had me chuckling like a good un – thanks lads

    ‘you lazy kangaroo’ !!!

    ‘lazy jiggaboo’ !!!

    I’ve got to say I have never heard such ‘home counties’ style language !!!

    As for the booing it wasnt just in ES3 or ES6 it was the whole ground – I refer you my learned friends to my previous post
    As soon as Gomez stepped onto the pitch RM lost the fans – this was, make no mistake a defining moment this season

    You are being a little presumptious with your sweeping statement.

    He might have “lost” some “fans”, but the majority of Wigan Athletic supporters have the patience and will give him time.

    At times this season the football has been on a par with the best we have seen at Wigan, but there is, quite plainly, a long way to go.

    If it takes one substitution to lose you and some of our other speccies then I’m not surprised our crowds are so low!!!

    Caldwell, Bramble etc. were clapped off.

    Most of the central sections of the West stand, who are season ticket holders, didn’t hold back in their criticism of Gomez and the decision to put him on.

    You can get away with a lack of effort if you produce a killer pass or two, but even his regular passing is short, nevermind anything as ambitious as playing someone in.

    Why is calling someone a “greasy haired spanish bas****”
    racist :?: :?:

    He does have greasy hair
    he is spanish
    and calling someone a bas**** is not racist.

    No they didn’t. Some did indeed criticize. Some clapped the team off, as they normally do. Most had already f***** off by the time the players had left the pitch, as they normally do.

    ‘Spic’ is racist.

    Sniper – more jolly banter excellent – more chuckling in the tea bag household

    Piemon – ‘He might have “lost” some “fans” – I can only assume you didnt have batteries in your hearing aide
    a. at the time of the substitution
    b. every time the ball went near G
    c. every time G touched the ball
    d. the whole of the 2nd half after G came on
    e. at full time and
    f. the walk from the ground at the end of the game
    the list is not exhaustable

    Sometimes the so called fans dismay me . We should be getting behind the team for crying out loud for an example look at Stoke’s support last night they were quiet in the first half but in the second they wouldn’t shut up every time they won a ball in midfield or got forward they were encouraging their team to get a goal

    Now look at our support and the booing and lack of encouragement to the team at one point Scharner was trying to get the home support going it was that quiet .And can someone point out how booing will get these players to perform ?

    He was first off the pitch and got more stick, the same handfull of fans stuck around to clap the rest of the team off.

    Instead of urging the team on for the last 25 minutes Martinez lost much of the crowd, in most cases it was simply frustration, but rarely have I seen a managers substition change the mood of the crowd so much.
