Wigan Athletic fans would welcome old flame Emile Heskey back to the club according to our latest poll, but it was a close call with 56% saying come on home Ivanhoe
The England centre forward is desperate for first team action to secure a World Cup place next summer but he was left sat on the bench yet again yesterday as his current club Aston Villa beat Chelsea
The big guy is clearly frustrated and he must be ruing the day he left the Latics in his big move though financially it was probably the right thing to do it has certainly not helped his professional ambitions.
Latics Chairman Dave Whelan has publicly stated that he thinks the world of Heskey and boss Roberto Martinez says that he was a legend in his time at the club and he is still spoken about behind the scenes such was the impression he made.
Personally I cant see us bringing him back and I cant see him choosing the Latics anyway even if Villa decided to let him go which seems unlikely, so there you have it, in my humble opinion though the majority of fans want him back it wont happen.
The new poll is available for you to vote in and is situated on the right side of this page and its asking who will win todays game between the Latics and Man City, quite simple to participate in, just select your option and then hit the submit button, its that easy, me? I am going for a home win for the Latics.
