    Hi guys...

    I was just wondering whether there are any fellow Wigan Athletic fans on here who want to talk about the club? I've been supporting Wigan for years and am looking for someone to speak with about them. What do you think about the start to the season? Or if someone supports another League 1 club they're welcome to the discussion as well.

    Getting relegated was a downer, but for us to win the FA Cup was just amazing. I actually went to the FA Cup match and the atmosphere was incredible. Hopefully a few seasons from now we can return to the Premier League.

    Was it Maloney who put in that MOTM performance?

    There is this thread for lower league teams: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...73315&page=348

    Ah cheers. Yes it was - he set up the winning goal in the 91st minute!

    Just moved the thread to football forum. That is a better place to talk about a football club in my opinion!

    Have never support Wigan athletic at all. I was a Chelsea FC fan long time ago. That was before Abramowitsch entered the club, so a long while.

    Sounds like, you are not so sad about the relegation. You would never change the success in FA Cup into staying in the league? I guess the victory in FA cup final was more important for you than playing another season in premier league, am I right?

    It looks like they posted two versions of the same thread, and someone else has combined them together, because there are two copies of the first post, and I definitely moved one thread over from Advice on everyday issues. :p: Thanks though!

    Okay, this was not the subforum I am assigned. Thanks to you too that you have combined and move it.

    Yes, that was a while ago - just looked it up and realised I was 2 years old when he took over! I was born in a place called Ormskirk which is quite close to Wigan (15-20 minute drive) and we had our first house there, which is why I support them. Not to mention the fact that it's a great club.

    I think so - because it's not often that we get our hands on some silverware, and the previous few seasons we'd been just staying up by the skin of our teeth, so relegation at some point was inevitable. We should have gone back up the following season, when we got into the Championship play offs, but that is a different matter. I think we're guaranteed to get promotion this season, and hopefully we can get back into the Premier League where we belong in 2-3 years time. I'm hopeful for the future.

    I just imagine what a fan would you be now, if you have spent a lot of your time in London...
