Whelan Wants Fines

Whelan Wants Fines

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan wants Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers to be fined for not completing fixtures after their undersoil heating systems failed last week. Whelan accused them of ‘bad management’ for letting their fixtures be cancelled.

The Premier League is investigating the postponements of the two games. Newcastle United's game was called off because of problems in the surrounding area, and so won't be investigated.

Dave Whelan said: “If a club can’t sort their heating system out they need to be fined heavily.”

Wigan Athletic lost 3-0 at home to Blackburn Rovers on the following Saturday. Dave Whelan commented: “They were fresh as daisies. No wonder they won.”
Could you manage Wigan Athletic better than Jewell, Manchester United better than Ferguson or Chelsea better than Mourinho?

Latics v QPR - Big Game Preview

An important game at the DW Stadium tomorrow for the Latics, Gary Caldwell will be hoping to banish the disappointment of conceding a 93 minute goal away at Forest last Saturday that saw a point slip away after coming from behind three times in the game.

QPR are in town, they aren't quite the multi-millionaires that they were the last time that we met, that was in the play off semi-final in 2014, but they do have a squad with lots of quality and will certainly pose a threat.
