Wigan Athletic 2-2 Stoke City (Wigan fan's perspective)
00:35 Monday 3rd September 2012

Wigan and Stoke drew 2-2 for the fourth time in the past seven meetings on Saturday afternoon. Against a Stoke side bereft of any footballing qualities and entirely reliant on set pieces, Wigan twice hit the front but failed to hang on to their…

Southampton 0-2 Wigan Athletic (Wigan fan's perspective)
21:21 Monday 27th August 2012

The first ever league meeting between Wigan and Southampton went the way of the visitors after a display of real professionalism from a Wigan side still hurting from the opening minutes of the game against Chelsea the previous week. The home…

Wigan Athletic Season Review
20:22 Wednesday 23rd May 2012

Finishing seven points above the drop zone sounds like a comfortable battle against survival, and ultimately it was. Although a look at the final league table in a few years time will make it look like the club just missed out on a mid-table…

Wigan Athletic 3-2 Wolves (Wigan fan's perspective)
20:12 Monday 14th May 2012

Wigan ended the season on a real high with a comfortable 3-2 victory over relegated Wolves. Having already secured safety with victory over Blackburn on Monday, the game had little riding on it for both sides. In a game that certainly wasn't…

Ending on an incredible high
17:07 Saturday 12th May 2012

A final day without anything riding on it? You're in the wrong job, love! That's what I would have said to a clairvoyant after Wigan's last meeting with Wolves. A 3-1 defeat at Molineux back in November was Wigan's eighth straight loss and…

Football
Blackburn Rovers 0-1 Wigan Athletic (Wigan fan's perspective)
14:19 Tuesday 8th May 2012

Wigan Athletic secured an eighth straight season of Premier League football with a hard-earned 1-0 victory at Blackburn, a result which relegated the home side into the bargain. A late Antolin Alcaraz header was enough in the end, although…

Wigan Athletic 4-0 Newcastle United (Wigan fan's perspective)
21:52 Sunday 29th April 2012

What a performance, what a result, what a day to be a Wigan fan! I never doubted all week that we would beat Newcastle, but as confident as I was even I didn't expect a performance and scoreline of this magnitude. The visitors were on the back…

Fulham 2-1 Wigan Athletic (Wigan Fan's Perspective)
21:35 Sunday 22nd April 2012

Wigan slipped to an unfortunate defeat at Fulham despite taking a second half lead at Craven Cottage. Emmerson Boyce was the unlikely provider of the opening goal, but Fulham immediately drew level and stole the points right at the death after…

Arsenal 1-2 Wigan Athletic (Wigan fan's perspective)
22:16 Tuesday 17th April 2012

Well, where the heck do I begin dissecting this one? I'm fast running out of superlatives for this team right now. A side that has struggled to win consecutive games for nearly three years is now making a habit of going on the most remarkable…

Wigan Athletic: A Club Like No Other
16:48 Sunday 15th April 2012

People mock "little" Wigan Athletic, but the size of our club is our biggest asset. From the dark old non-league days the club has always been right at the very heart of the community and has always been in touch with its roots.  The club regularly…

Wigan Athletic 1-0 Manchester United (Wigan fan's perspective)
22:18 Thursday 12th April 2012

A few weeks ago after a win at Anfield I started my report with the line "Wigan pulled off the result of their relatively short lives..." and less than three weeks later I feel it necessary to repeat that. Wigan pulled off the result of their…

Chelsea 2-1 Wigan Athletic (Wigan fan's perspective)
12:28 Sunday 8th April 2012

How's your luck? Wigan were left cursing theirs after being desperately unlucky not to come away from Stamford Bridge with at least a point after two horrendous mistakes by linesman Dave Bryan. Both Chelsea goals were offside but the ancient…

Football
Wigan Athletic 2-0 Stoke City (Wigan fan's perspective)
17:21 Sunday 1st April 2012

Wigan secured their first home win for seven months on Saturday after beating a poor Stoke City side at the DW Stadium. Goals from Antolin Alcaraz and Victor Moses gave the home side the three points to build on the impressive win at Anfield…

Liverpool 1-2 Wigan Athletic (Wigan fan's perspective)
17:35 Sunday 25th March 2012

Liverpool 1-2 Wigan Athletic. Sorry, say that again? Liverpool 1-2 Wigan Athletic! It's no mistake, it was no fluke either. Wigan pulled off the result off their relatively short lives with a quite stunning display at the home of the five-time…

Wigan Athletic 1-1 West Brom (Wigan Fan's Perspective)
18:00 Monday 19th March 2012

It was another disappointing result at home, this time it was West Brom who somehow left the DW with a point. Wigan, who were without injured Hugo Rodallega, created enough chances to win 3 top flight matches, were left cursing their luck in…
