Wigan made history on Saturday by winning their first ever major trophy and now jubilant fans are now expectant the Latics can turn their cup triumph into league form. Wigan have narrowly avoided relegation in the past three seasons, and after so many close-escapes fans have become expectant they will again somehow miraculously avoid the drop.
It is fair to say that Wigan are the big underdogs heading into Saturday's FA Cup final against Man City.
David Moyes’ defection from Everton to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Man United has set off a game of musical chairs that the world of football has been waiting for. Amidst all the hyperbole surrounding Fergie’s retirement and succession, it is easy to forget that another long era, albeit one not even half his length, is at an end. So who will end up at Everton when the music stops?
It could have been as good as done and dusted in regards to Premier League relegation, yet Wigan's win at West Brom on Saturday has left several clubs more than a little bit concerned about their Premiership status a status that for many had seemed all but assured only a few weeks ago.
With the small Scotsman recently becoming resurgent during Wigan’s 4th straight relegation run in, Shaun Maloney seems to engineering their form which keeps them afloat every year, here is a little run through of his career.
After Liverpool scored their sixth goal at St James Park in their clash with the Magpies, a large number of fans had already left the stadium. Many were disgusted at the pitiful performance on show, whilst others just consigned themselves to the fact that perhaps they are about to suffer for the final month of the campaign and will have to fight to stay in the division.
Football needs to make changes off the field, but let’s hope it doesn’t look to the 1980s for inspiration.
As we know, Wigan Athletic have reached their first ever FA Cup semi-final at the new Wembley, allbeit against Millwall.
Nonetheless a visit to Wembley is a special day for any club and its supporters, it's a day of celebration regardless of the end result (but it's better when you win).
I am a Portsmouth fan, I've been to Wembley several times and each time has been as special as the last, bar the Charity Shield of course.
The joy of a last minute goal in unparalleled and with the end of the season approaching they matter more than ever. Obviously, a thought has to be spared for the teams on the other end who have seen victory snatched from them with only seconds remaining.
Harry Redknapp gave it a good go as manager of Queens Park Rangers but it won't be enough to secure survival. Being at the match on Super Sunday you wouldn't have thought the home side were in a relegation battle, and certainly not on the wrong end of one! The atmosphere was electric and it looked like QPR stood a chance of staying up before Shaun Maloney's 94th free-kick sent Wigan back with a point. Good luck with those wages in the Championship...
