Whelan Promises Europa Push if the Latics Qualify

Whelan Promises Europa Push if the Latics Qualify


Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has promised that he will work with manager Steve Bruce to ensure that the Latics can go as far as they possibly can should they qualify for the new Europa League which is due to start next season.

Currently riding 7th in the Premier League, Latics are in pole position to take the last English place and Whelan is aware that the squad would need to be strengthened if an assault on Europe was indeed to be attempted.

Strength in depth has been a concern all season at the JJB with the Latics being seen has having a good team rather than a good squad and once suspensions and injuries start to nibble away form can suffer.

This is true of most clubs but with the extra games that European football brings then there is also the need to increase the size and also the quality of the squad to ensure that Premier League survival isn`t in jeopardy, Whelan told reporters:

"I understand the Premier League is the most important league of all but if you are lucky enough to qualify for Europe then you have to give it your best shot.

"I will work with Steve to ensure Wigan Athletic go as far in that competition as we possibly can"

I'm sorry but I find it difficult to believe DW's assertions re financial spending

I can't remember having been outbid for a player before. They just chose other clubs for whatever reason usually. i.e. Andy Johnson.

Latics v QPR - Big Game Preview

An important game at the DW Stadium tomorrow for the Latics, Gary Caldwell will be hoping to banish the disappointment of conceding a 93 minute goal away at Forest last Saturday that saw a point slip away after coming from behind three times in the game.

QPR are in town, they aren't quite the multi-millionaires that they were the last time that we met, that was in the play off semi-final in 2014, but they do have a squad with lots of quality and will certainly pose a threat.
