When the going gets tough for Wigan Athletic, the Latics fans really do get going
Last season the support shown to the team when they were struggling in the fight against relegation was phenomenal. Players, staff and the manager all commented on how it helped to inspire the team to get the results that were needed to secure safety, the togetherness of the club was cited as one of the most important ingredients of the run-in, a quick look at our neighbours Blackburn and how they were a club not only in trouble on the field, but completely divided off it and their outcome shows what can happen when that support isn't forthcoming from the stands
Unfortunately, for various reasons, we find ourselves back in a similar position to this time last year, results are going against us and we seem to be rooted in the bottom three. Now as supporters it's our time to be counted again, we can make a difference, we can help the team fight their way out of this situation, it's time for us to make a stand
The next game at the DW Stadium is on Saturday the 2nd March when Liverpool are in town for a 5pm kick-off, this is the day when the fans 'Meet & Greet' needs to be resurrected. If ever the team needed to know that the fans are behind them then this game, against a team bang in form, is one where the togetherness of the club needs to be shown to get the lads pumped up for what will undoubtedly be a very difficult match
So what are we going to do?
Let's get down to the DW Stadium early that day, 3pm, and make some terrific noise to ensure that the players know 100% that the supporters of Wigan Athletic are up for the fight over the next couple of months. Let's give them that boost that they need to perform that extra 1% to grind out a result and get our season's run-in off to a positive start.
We know this kind of support makes a difference, we've seen it in action, the club even celebrated last season's support by publishing a book about it. There is already a great deal of support for this and a large number of supporters are expected at the corner of the East and South stands as the players arrive on the 2nd March.
Will you be there?
