Wigan Athletic - Meeting Some Spurs Fans

Wigan Athletic - Meeting Some Spurs Fans



A popular feature on Vital Latics throughout this season, we will hopefully be getting the views of a `few' of the opposition fans on Wigan Athletic, so with a visit to the DW Stadium for Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, it was time to meet some Spurs fans.

So with seven simple questions posed let's take a look at the responses:

1. How long have you supported Spurs?
2. Who is your best player?
3. Who do you think is Wigan's best player?
4. What is your perception of Wigan Athletic?
5. What do you think the score will be?
6. What do you think will be your final league position?
7. What do you think will be Wigan's final league position?

The Corner Pin
1. 32 years.
2. Too tough to call.
3. Rodellega.
4. A small club with a great chairman.
5. 0-2. (sorry)
6. 4th.
7. 17th.

Tarrico the yid
1. 20 years
2. King
3. Rodallega
4. Not enough support ( due to being a RL Town)
5. 1-3
6. 4th
7. 15th

ahx00
1. About 20 years.
2. Modric
3. Rodellaga perhaps
4. A decent, honest little project, but ultimately futile because you are and always will be a rugby town.
5. 3-0 Spurs, sorry.
6. Hopefully 4th.
7. Hopefully comfortably clear of relegation, there arw more deserving teams

ScottDaYid
1. 23 years and 2 months
2. Modric
3. I think it will be Crusat after this season.
4. We seem to have a decent record V Wigan so i quite like them :) Plus a decent manager & chairman!
5. 1-2
6. 4th
7. 16th

spurstop4
1 45 years
2 Modric but Sandro will be something to see this season
3 Heskey! came a coupla seasons back and enjoyed the 'he used to shite but now he's alright' chant. Now its every Wigan player that doesn`t score
4 about 35 miles west from here and good pies
5 you beat us last time I went but I think you're in for a hammering this time. Maybe 1-4
6 technically 3rd, probably 5th
7 tough one, PL is busy. maybe 12th?

Devon Spur
1. 17 years
2. Modric
3. Chris Kirkland
4. Alright. Hardly a fan to speak of so no perception on them, Whelan's alright but you've outlived your stay in the PL imo.
5. 1-5
6. 3rd
7. 18th.

milyid
1) 42 years

Totters

2. We have more than one.
3. Rodellga (even with his injury).
4. Egg chasers with wonga.
5. Arrive Wigan, check in, find a pub, find the DW, cheer voraciously each time we score, leave DW sated, find pub again.

2. Assou-Ekotto (but Sandro is the one to watch out for)
3. Big fan of Sean Maloney, but of the proven ones, has to be Al Habsi

5. Wigan 0-2 Spurs
6. Right now, 4th

First saw Wigan play Ipswich in your promotion year. Came up for the weekend and came to Southport on the Sunday. Loved it. Moved up here in '06 and see all Spurs games in the NW. Sister is Spurs season ticket holder so get tickets for the away games when she can't make it. Her hubby works on Sat mornings so they only get to local away games. Wigan is a well run club, nice ground, good football team and surely Spurs have got their eyes on the Manager for the future. Born and bred Londoner, Spurs fan for 50 odd years, now in the NW. Thanks Wigan.

Since she came in we've suffered 12 relegations and wasted £800m parachute payments on dross. I've met her once and she's very nice but we can't be sentimental about these decisions.
