FSA don’t pull any punches
Earlier today it was reported that clubs at the top of the Premier League had been planning in secret to pursue a wide-ranging restructure of the English footballing pyramid named “Project Big Picture”.
Big Picture or bigger problems?
Two of the big hitters in the Premier League are pulling together to get behind ‘Project Big Picture’. Despite their bitter rivalry on the pitch, the idea is making huge waves in English football with several supporting it but a host of other leading voices expressing major concerns.
Cal moves to Aus
Former Wigan Athletic winger Callum McManaman has moved down under and joined Australian side Melbourne Victory.
The 29-year-old played 133 times for Latics across two spells, scoring 18 goals in the process.
He joined us at the DW Stadium from Everton and made his debut in 2009.
He was of course part of the Wigan Athletic squad which won the FA Cup in 2013 under Roberto Martinez and scored 17 goals in 109 games across his first spell at the club.
In 2015, he moved to West Bromwich Albion and then had a loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday, before moving to Sunderland in 2017.
He returned to the Latics in 2018 and stayed for another season at the club, before spending the 2019/20 campaign at Luton Town. He of course was part of the come back at Kenithworth Road which saw us lose in teh final minutes.
But we will always have fond memories of him and even for a while thought he could have been playing here this season after training with the squad over summer.
We wish him all the best and hope to see him back in the future
