Latics to Face Swansea in Carling Cup


The Carling Cup has thrown up a real tasty tie as far as the Latics are concerned with Roberto Martinez` former club Swansea City set to visit the DW Stadium for the 4th round clash

Included in the Swansea side are former Latics men Scott Sinclair and David Cotterill, just to add an extra drop of spice, one to look forward to, ties will take place during the week commencing October 25th.

not as much as we are, would have been better at the liberty but if we have to stuff you on you're own doorstep so be it.

Disappointing there is this enmity for some. As Owen Coyle would probably have only left Burnley (which was special to him) for Bolton (which was the one team that was more special) the same was true for Roberto. He really valued his time at Swansea, as both player and manager (and did so much for them - disappointing that some are ungrateful and feel they are `owed` more), and only Wigan had a higher claim on his loyalty (he turned down Celtic, remember), and the opening just `happened` to come up at the time it did. Be interesting to see Scott Sinclair, in particular, as he appeared to not quite be able to manage things at Wigan. Good to see him succeeding at Swansea. (I also consider that we're fortunate that we were number 15 in the draw and not 16, as 16/Wolves are away to ... for whom we're not quite ready. One day we'll beat them as well but perhaps not in a month's time.)

why isit disapointing, it creates a much better atmosphere and makes the game alot more exciting. which after the last few months is surely somthing wigan athletic could do with. providing we don't do the same as notts county did too you.
