    Far too pro club.

    The defence that Cook is getting from this site is bordering on diabolical. Ok keep burying your heads in the sand. League one looms and 30 mil in debt. I hope you will all be as keen when we are in real trouble, in a Bolton position.

    Waste of time now as a fans outlet, it really is. I’m not the only one who thinks it as well.

    Shame really.

    I hear a Rolling Stones song coming on!

    The criticism on this site is more constructive than most others that’s all and there is a level of balance here. If you prefer to see people frothing at the mouth then maybe another site would be better for you. Assuming you arent banned that is.

    Maybe other people just have a different view to you?
    I don’t read anyone here saying that we are in a good place – we all know that we are in big trouble.
    But how to change that is a reasonable subject for reasonable debate.
    And as an aside – yes, I am “pro club”. Would you prefer that we all were against the club? I think you mean “pro-current management set-up”. That is what it is, and shouting loudly on this group isn’t going to affect the owners one tiny bit.
    We are all supporters, and we all want the best for the club. At best probably we should be 6-8 places higher in the table, for a true reflection of the status of the club, the players we have, and the way we have played. That’s just 9 points. It is a game of fine margins, and if in the New Year we start picking up points we’ll be fine. That’s the optimist in me.
    If we don’t we’ll be in League One again. But I’ll still be in my seat, as I was the last two times we were there. That’s the pragmatist.

    What exactly does pro club mean?

    Some of the Callaway equipment could fit that bill.

    If potential gates of 6000 next season and a huge debt,offloading what decent players we have doesn’t affect the owners then we really are screwed. A manager who has been allowed to continue in the inevitable slide is a disgrace.

    Could have sworn last time we were in League one we got just over 8k home supporters. In championship we seem to get about 9k. 15k in ticket sales every other week won’t exactly kill the club.

    Wouldn’t bank on 8k home support next season if we drop.

    If people other than Latics fans call our club I become the incredible hulk and turn into this monster who wants to rip peoples heads off. People who know me will be aware that I have been involved in many a fist cuff particularly with the chubster fans who have belittled our club for the full duration of my 50 years supporting them. I’m not proud of it but by the same token I don’t regret doing it as in the main I’ve been the retaliator not the initiator.
    However, when our own fans have a go and I mean the ones who’ve been around since the non league and early football league days, I think they deserve the right to have a go and can take it. What I do take issue with is those same calibre of fans who show a hatred almost to our club, manager and team. I’m absolutely cheesed off with Paul Cook and his plastic backroom staff and have wanted him out for months, however I support Wigan Athletic, not Paul Cook Athletic or IEC Athletic. I have no intention of turning my back on the club and will moan like the next man, but still get behind the manager and team on match day.
    As George has allured to in his many posts, we are all not happy with our current predicament, what some of us can see however, is that the performances have not deserved the results.If we were getting outplayed every week perhaps I might have a different view but we are not.
    Cook is here to stay, for this season anyway, no matter how many dolls fans throw out the cot, so its pointless getting your knickers in a twist over it. I’ve got a feeling that the next win, whenever it comes, will see more to follow. The second half of the season will be more fruitful than the first.
    So that’s my cards on the table, I am once again a Lightsider but with a few dark roots poking through.

    From Matlock to ManU
    What a journey!

    Is this the start of yet another “I’m off here for ever” by the OP?
