Wigan Athletic's 2016-17 season in numbers
1,000-1 - best odds on the Fulham-Latics game not finishing in a 0-0 draw. Unbelievably, it transpired to be a good bet - the final score was Fulham 3 Wigan 2.

79 inches - how tall you must be to look down upon the gargantuan Danny Burn POTWS (Player of the Wretched Season). Ten straight years of early morning stretches on the torture rack should just about do it for you.

67% - percentage of Wigan fans that read online match reports for the purposes of confirmation bias.

Zero pairs of trousers in the wardrobe of King Warren Jo-

Okay, that's quite enough about Shortsman II for one (wretched) season! We've sent your small time Internet weblogger for a 12-hour ice bath. -- Ed
