Can we take a moment to laugh at Wigan?

No more Uwe, no more Forshaw, an owner and manager who are on the ropes through racism and after the jip they gave us in the Summer to sign my second favourite Scouser (behind Bidwell obviously) they're living it up in the relegation zone :fl::fl::fl:

What happened to the Wigan fan who basically made out as if they were in the Champions League?

Seen that they have signed Corby legend Billy McKay, interested to see how they do, would have been interested in Wolves grabbing him last year.

Remember, Wigan got the legendary Andy Delort because he wanted to go to a club that "bring players on".

When we play them next season it will be like the good old northern premier league

They'll certainly look up to their bigger neighbours. Dave'll come over if there's a Chinese takeaway open near your ground.

It's occurred to me that you are potentially a year away from being the highest placed team in Lancashire. Who'd of thought it, eh?

There aren't enough buses in Dorset to park in front of your goal. You're going to get your sorry arses whipped by the Clarkster.

He isn't the third highest scoring Wolves player beginning with the letter L with four letters in his name and the 597th highest Wolves goalscorer of all time for nothing.

Clarke has as many goals this season as their other two strikers, so for them it's probably seen as an improvement.

Including their must sought after striker Andy Delort? This can't happen, he was meant to be the next Messi :eek:. Behind Clarke of course.

I was expecting a Brentford fan to bring up the Andy "I'm going to a club that brings players on" Delort issue.

It got me thinking about other legendary striking partnerships.....
Shearer & Sutton
Toshack & Keegan
Keane & Berbatov
Scargill & Heathfield
Dalglish & Rush
Delort & Clarke

When you've got Andre Gray there's no reason to bring up Delort..

I see Wigan have just signed Kim Bo-Kyung, the Korean at the centre of the Mackay text controversy....

He's not great. But better than Saer Sene or Andre Blackman.

Seriously? Why would he want to play for Mackay again?

The lure of Leon Clarke can transcend even the barriers of racism.

Congratulations to Malky Mackay on leading Wigan to his second victory since taking charge.

Don't know what to make of that Wigan result.

Should I be pleased that they have won and won't end their run against us or worried that this will be the start of a decent run for them? From what I have read from the Reading fans, they were useless so hopefully it's more a case of that than Wigan being any good.

I thought Wigan looked quite good against us recently to be honest! Low on confidence and fell apart a bit easy once behind, but several flashes of good stuff there. They're in a right hard position, but I wouldn't count them as down just yet.

One of my mates said Wigan were the second worst team he'd seen all season last night.

Us being the worst..

As you have read it was a case of us being useless rather than Wigan being any good.Apart from Mcclean they looked a poor side which shows how bad we were.They did look fairly solid at the back but then they didn't have much to defend against.I still can't see Wigan staying up.
