    The highlight for me is my eldest son actually requesting to come to games instead of me dragging him along as I have had to do in the past.

    I’m shocked and stunned Standish. After what we have been witnessing this season, I thought it would be the other way round and he would have been requesting not to come, leaving you with no option but to drag him along.

    Surely there must be some bribes or added incentives involved.

    Saying hello to Jeff Wright in the concourse. To the JCLs and those not old enough to remember. He was one of the most stylish players ever to play for Latics. Also probably the best passer of a football I can remember. Would be criticised these days for passing forward and sometimes passing long balls out wide or into the box. Class act and class lad.

    Jeff used to get loads of stick from fans for being shit,he was the Gomez of the 1970s team.

    He presented out player of the year trophies at St Judes Youth.[/quote]
    Sorry, only just spotted this.

    I’ve said pretty much the same thing. (apart from the St Judes bit)[/quote]

    I remember agroup of fans rounding on one poor bloke on the popular side who was defending Jeff Wright and saying he was a good player.

    One guy was 2 inches from his face repeatedly screaming “You’re a Wright Lover” as though it was a crime !!!

    The Jordi Gomez of his day. Got abused by some of our supporters for being a show pony and having no bottle.

    Don’t know about you SW, I always felt Jeff was so much better than some of his team mates and he got the flack if they didn’t or couldn’t read what he was asking of them. Very clever player who saw many passes go awry coz players were not to his standard and didn’t make the run early enough. Amazed he didn’t play at a better level.

    For me the Reading game…thank God I was 1000 miles away :ohmy:

    Followed the match on the BBC website…the expletives I was coming out with after 5 minutes could probably have been heard at the ground :blink:

    A close 2nd was the sacking of Yootha Joyce. I’d have put it 1st had it been a month earlier!

    I was a youngster Nuneaton, so I pretty much went with whatever those around me were shouting – and most of them said he was crap!

    I remember them all jeering when he miskicked a clearance from a corner – and even then I thought they were a bit harsh on him.

    Wiganers aren’t easily pleased!

    He’s only 10, so I’ve been buying both him and his mate tickets and letting them sit a few rows down from me. That’s what the incentive is!

    And he’s been to three away games this season.

    Poor lad. Saw his first three Wigan goals last week!

    Well, I suppose them there Ginsters pasties pale into insignificance after that,

    Nick Powell is a class act. If we can keep hold of him can you imagine what he could do for us when he is fully fit.
