Vote for Your Favourite Latics Win of the Season


Wigan Athletic had what you might call a season full of inconsistent performances and results but at the end of it all the objective, goal, aim, target, call it want you want, of Premier League survival was achieved and achieved quite comfortably with 6 points to spare.

Some people will continually point to our defeats at Spurs, Manchester United, Portsmouth and of course the final day of the season at Chelsea, to counter this we can throw back the wins that in my opinion defined this season as much as any of those losses with fantastic performances.

Our opening game back in August when Roberto took his new side with his new ideas and playing style and blew away Aston Villa with a display that was much more impressive and dominant than the 2-0 score line suggests gave us all hope for the season ahead, Chelsea at home at the end of September when we became the first side to beat them this campaign, and beat them we did with a magnificent display of superb football.

October saw the Latics travel to Turf Moor to face a Burnley side with a 100% home record, they didn`t have at the end of the ninety minutes when we gave them a taste of the rest of the season to come with a 3-1 beating.

Wolves away in January saw us get a much needed win after going 5 games with just 2 points gained throughout December, morale was low and performances had been poor but a fantastic team performance that saw young James McCarthy make his first Premier League start and grab a goal as the Latics ran out 2-0 winners.

Liverpool at home on the 8th March was an important game, no wins in 6 throughout February including the home defeat to Notts County in the FA cup, if we ever needed a morale boosting victory this was it, Hugo scored we won 1-0 and what a fantastic night of football it was too.

Following a drab 0-0 against what was effectively Portsmouth reserves Arsenal were the next side that rolled up to the DW Stadium and when they went into a 2-0 lead it looked that we had lost another game, but what a fight back, with 10 minutes left on the clock Ben Watson crashes home 1-2, 5 minutes later big Titus heads the ball home 2-2 and just when we thought it couldn`t get any better Charlie picks up a pass from Hugo, skips past three Arsenal defenders and crashes a glorious shot from the edge of the area in off the post, 3-2 and three points in a quite remarkable comeback, fantastic win and as good as guaranteed our Premier League safety.

Which of those six games is in your opinion the best Latics win of the 2009/10 season?

The Villa win for me, it just gave hope for the season, the game and the few days that followed before the Wolves game were just filled with anticipation for the season

It has to be the famous Arsenal comeback fore me. Without this win I think we could well be playing Swansea next season with, alas, two of their deadleg players and their half deadleg manager. It also raised a chuckle, or two, for all those true supporters who attended the match in question, but missed all three of our goals.

For me definitely the Arsenal match at home. Partly because its so fresh in my memory. But mainly because we showed great character to make a comeback. I just wish we would show this kind of hunger more often. I will craving it next season that's for sure.
