The Wigan Athletic Academy is still producing great talent and it could well see us thrive in the future. We were upset to see the likes of Joe Geldhart leave the club, but we could see more of latest crop make it to the first team very soon.
The latest protégé to move up the ranks is Kyle Joseph
Although it’s an old-school cliché in football, attack is the best form of defence. Following a troublesome 2019-20 campaign, the Latics dropped into the third tier of English football, and manager Paul Cook resigned from his position.
Since the proposed new owners of Wigan Athletic entered their period of exclusivity with the administrators, Wigan Athletic Supporters Club has been in conversations with the bidders for a number of weeks.
Cards are coming
First of all can we thank you for the overwhelming response to membership of the Wigan Athletic Supporters Club for the 2020-21 season.
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.
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.
Will Keane return to Latics
Will Keane was released by Ipswich this summer after scoring nine goals in 28 starts and 13 substitute appearances during an 18-month stay.
Out of time
Unfortunately due to time commitments, we were not able to do an interview this Tuesday.
Due to another interview overrunning it was far to late to fulfil our weekly Q&A with Gerald.
Maybe next week!
Comings and goings latest
Wigan Athletic defender Josh Clarke left as the club extended the contracts for winger Viv Solomon-Otabor and midfielder Dan Gardner until January 2021. The duo’s contracts were due to expire in the first week of October. In summer, that was full of movements in English clubs fans were following closely. There is still room for movement within British clubs as the window is still open.
We are pleased to share the news that an unnamed bidder has now progressed to the next stage of exclusivity with the joint administrators. Although there remains a long way to go in this process, the Supporters Club has made contact with the bidder and we are currently in discussions regarding the future involvement of the supporters at Wigan Athletic, should their bid be successful.
The fifth meeting with Gerald Krasner took place this evening, Tuesday 29/09/20. The telephone call lasted 38 minutes.
