After a pretty good transfer window, Wigan Athletic Supporters Club members are thinking a good season can be had this term.
The window was a good opportunity for new Gaffer Paul Cook to offload some of the players that he thought wouldn’t feature for him, plus bring in new faces to bolster the core of the squad.
That core has seen us go unbeaten in the League so far and even though there was a lot of speculation buzzing around some our players, we managed to keep hold of them and built on what is looking a great squad for this league.
In the January transfer window, Warren Joyce brought in 8 players, ultimately though we saw the team get relegated. Paul Cook has offloaded all of those players and I think that speaks volumes.
The surprises were selling Omar Bogle and Alex Gilbey, but there must be a reason behind those. Some others have gone out on loan and hopefully they will gain matches under their belts to help out in the New Year or next Season.
Confidence seems to be growing in the team, plus the fans are getting that buzz back too judging by the way our coach numbers are growing for away travel.
The team themselves are also top of the table with football betting tips to bounce straight back to the Championship, but we as fans know not to count chickens.
After our break due to Internationals, we hit the road to Shrewsbury on Saturday and Charlton on Tuesday.
Both these games will show us a lot about where we will be, come the end of the season.
As the early signs seems to show we will go on to do well this season, it would be great if the fans could get on the road with us to give valuable support at away games.
Paul Cook’s team looks like:
Keepers: Chris Walton, Jamie Jones, Matija Sarkic
Defenders: Dan Burn, Reece James, Callum Elder, Craig Morgan, Chey Dunkley, Terell Thomas, Luke Burke, Nathan Byrne, Alex Bruce
Midfield: Nick Powell, David Perkins, Max Power, Lee Evans, Sam Morsey, Shaun McDonald, Michael Jacobs, Gary Roberts, Danny Whitehead
Strikers: Will Grigg, Ivan Toney, Noel Hunt, Ryan Colclough, James Barrigan, Gavin Massey
