Together We Can Survive - Wigan Athletic

Together We Can Survive - Wigan Athletic

Feeling queasy, of a nervous disposition, faint hearted, well you`d better look away, this isn`t a time for being squeamish, now is the time for the brave, the resolute and the strong.

There are seven games left of this dramatic season, that`s 630 minutes of football for the Latics to gain the points required to preserve their Premier League status for another season, and you know what, we are that confident that it can be pulled off that we`ve given the rest of the teams a head start.

Sitting at the bottom of the table isn`t a worry, it`s a challenge, of course we could/should be coasting mid-table with nothing to look forward to but where to go for our Mediterranean tans, but hey, we`re Wigan Athletic, we don`t do easy, never have done, so why start now.

There are 21 points left to play for, Martinez reckons that we`ll need at least 10 of those to save ourselves from the drop, 3 wins and a draw is his aim, one thing is for sure we all need to pull together and fight for this to be a successful end to the season.

Over these next seven games there are bound to be moments of anguish and trepidation, but don`t let them turn to despair or doubt, for those are the seeds of failure, what we need to do is stand tall, together, be proud of what we can achieve and if we get knocked down, well to coin a phrase, let`s get up again.

We can only make it through to the end if we are together, shouting, no forget shouting, roaring the team on, putting fear into our opponents hearts and making sure that the Premier League know exactly who Wigan Athletic are.

So be strong, be brave, stand up and be proud to support Wigan Athletic of the English Premier League, the best league in the world and we want to make sure that we stay in it.

Churchill said on the eve of the Second World War: 'You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.`

Let us make Victory our aim and let us be proud to be a part of something special, let us roar on the lads to survival and let us make sure we play our part in a glorious end to the season.

We are Wigan Athletic

Latics v Brighton - Big Game Preview

Latics are back at the DW Stadium this afternoon following a very creditable draw on Tuesday away at Leeds, the game extending our unbeaten run to four, which must give us something of a platform to build on as the season is starting to take shape.

Brighton are flying high at the moment, currently 3rd in the Championship with just one away defeat, Newcastle at St James's Park and they have players, especially in attack, of exceptional quality at this level.
