The Dave Whelan Stand - You Decide

Vital Wigan regular Jonni_G wants to know if the fans of Wigan Athletic agree with him that there should be a stand named after the Latics chairman at the JJB

Dave Whelan has been at the forefront of the Latics climb through the divisions and Jonni rightly suggests that without Whelan the Latics would not be where they are today in the top tier of English football

So with Whelan looking to sell the Latics is it time to honour our benefactor by naming a stand after him?

You can decide by taking part in the poll on the right side of this page, simply vote Yes or No

At the moment North, East, South and West arent really original and arent entirely accurate either

Us East standers are in the 'Utmost Stand' don't you know, not sure whether Utmost is an estate agents or some bank about to go into liquidation but I for one am hugely proud and the thought of changing it's name to something meaningful is outlandish. Sarky, me?

I'm in the East stand that could be the stand that be named after him, or even the west stand
