This weekend

This weekend
Just a final point on Everton - my Toffees supporting son-in-law reckons that they are a better team without Rooney, and he was glad to see Lescott go as he was “crap in the second half of last season” I went along to watch Maine Road F.C., hello to Reddish Blues Stan,Gary, Dave Miller, and our very own Colin Nicholls and Colin Broadbent. Road lost 2-1 to Colne in a poor game.

So, results weren’t too good, Spurs winning, Liverpool winning so far, though Villa lost heavily, and possible threat Everton only drew at Wolves, who we beat 3-0. How did Vidic get away with that elbow at Bolton, and why was it not even picked up on MOTD? I wonder?

So, Wigan tomorrow night and here’s the It’s A Fix extract:
Last promotion 2005, a fantastic achievement, Lg Cup R/Up in 2005/06. Most recent connections: Antoine Sibierski, Michael Brown. Big name supporters? George Formby (deceased) 12th league meeting
Roberto Martinez’s squad includes : Kirkland, Caldwell, Bramble, Scharner, Melchiot, Thomas, Diame, Figueroa, Rodallega, N’Zogbia, Scotland, Moses, Koumas..
This season so far : At the JJB in October it was a 1-1 draw. Wigan went ahead through N’Zogbia on the stroke of half time and City equalised through Petrov just after the break. Zabaleta was sent off. Crowd was 20,005 with 4631 Blues.
Currently they’re 16th with 31 points from 31 games and 3 wins 2 draws and 10 losses away from home.
Our form in Manc v Wigan : At COMS last January it was a Zabaleta goal which clinched the welcome 1-0 win, the first in 9 Prem meetings. Crowd was 41,262 (2,411 Piepeople)
Comment : They’re a bit of an enigma really, losing to the rags then beating Chelsea, and Liverpool, so anything can happen, except we’re due another win.
Wind Ups : Where are you now you are shit
WWYWYW Shite : Well supported in the non – league days, but down to an average of 2,758 in season 89/90.
Their current average home attendance : 18,097 (20,447 highest so far)


  1. I think Wigan are short of "celebrity" fans if George Formby is the only one we can dig up. Wigan Athletic were only formed in 1932 and did not get into the football league until 1978 so he must have watched Wigan County, Wigan UTD or Wigan Town as a lad. When they conceded did he stand up and and shout "OH MOTHER"? I just hope the crap Wigan turn up tonight so we can say "TURNED OUT NICE AGAIN".

  2. I the light of the damage I almost did with my last post, can I just welcome all Wigan fans to Eastlands. I trust that you enjoy our hospitality and that you have a speedy journey home.

  3. There are people in life Tony that just enjoy being nasty,although you did have the courage to put a name to the post I can understand the reason for taking the post off as some of those posters were a bit scary.
    I would like to make an original posting but now realise that an automatic search engine alerts everyone concerned looking for key words and having been taken aback by the sheer venom of the response to some tongue in cheek comments I would be wary of any posting comments regarding other clubs as I am sure there are other angry "trolls" out there lying in wait,ready to try to turn this forum into a slanging match.
    I would like to add to the end of your post.Having lost. OOPS!

  4. .............your way to the ground due to all the road closures and one way systems. (phew, I think we got away with it Steve, I doubt the Pie eaters will notice) Oh Shit!

  5. Or as George would say"hee hee, turned out nice again".
