Tottenham Reaction

Paul Jewell

It was quite a scrappy game, and then we got a goal in front and we looked quite comfortable but then we had to sucker punches just before half-time and we never really recovered from that.
I'm not going to blame injuries for those two goals, but as a team I just think we dropped off and at this level you need maximum concentration otherwise you are punished.

We weren't punished once, but we were punished twice which was really disappointing. We tried to pick them up for the second half, and we got a reaction and they tried hard but we never really made any clear-cut chances and we were chasing the game.

Wigan were second best by a country mile! Also by far the worst away support ive seen at WHL all season, Inclusing slavia prague Tut!

mate they were two fantastic goals, the lead up to them was good while the tricks and finishes involved were sublime.

2 quality goals but I don't think you can fault the away support, ok they wasn't as vocal as I would expect but they were far better than the so called chelsea fans

Now wonder wigan lose when they there players are having to perform in front of about 100 fans, didnt even notice them the whole game and could hardly see them until chimbonda went across to mock them, by far the worst support in years, port vale even sold out the away end!!

Two sucker punches? Get real, Paul. They were two brilliant individual goals.

I like Paul Jewell - he refuses to accept his rightful place in the hierarchy of football and always talks as if Wigan is a serious football club. He is especially bitter about Spurs, probably because Chimbonda decided he needed to play at a real football club. Almost died laughing when their chairman said last week he feared losing Jewell to one of the top four clubs. I don't think so! We've played them three times now and they are still trying manfully for a win. Very plucky, but they're just not in the same league as us, are they?

Just 3 Points For Wigan Athletic To Play For (01/05/16)

The Latics have only 3 points left to play for in this year's battle for League One promotion.

Gary Caldwell's Blackpool Reflections

A very proud Gary Caldwell spoke to the media after the game, let's take a look at what he had to say:

Dan's Big Game Report - Blackpool 0 Latics 4


As you read this message in the year 2036, much of Blackpool vs. Wigan '16 has passed into the annals of Latics lore. Scarcely has a single game of kickball received quite as much build-up - from the minute this fixture was announced to the moment match ref Stuart Attwell finally tootled on his tin whistle, talk of Bloomfield Road on 30 April was incessant.

And I expect it's been much the same since, with (admittedly failed) film scripts written and (admittedly shoddy) statues
