Big Match Preview

DW Stadium Saturday 22 October. 3pm.

Local derby this, Biggest home game off the year in my opinion..However due to the terms off his contract, Al-Habsi can not play. Gutted. However will Kirkland get to have his day again and be a derby day hero?

Di-Santo is likely to be out due to having 10 stitches during training.

Bolton will be out Ivan Klasnic due to his sending off against Stoke.

In my opinion, Martinez is just showing us what he is capable of pulling off at Wigan - Free following football like on the continent without that hoof ball feel that we had under Bruce etc...

I can see this match as the turn around for our dreadful home form ( Three defeat's in three games and 13 goals have gone in the back off the net)

bit of Trivia...

This is the 35th meeting between Wigan and Bolton.

The "stats" are as off: Bolton 13 Wigan 14 Draws 7

What the manager has to say: "Bolton are a difficult side to play against because they can bring anything to the game, and that's where we have to be aware"

Quote taken from BBC SPORT.

Can he keep his cool during this derby ?

The game in days gone-bye

The Terrace - I have not stood on a terrace at a Wigan Athletic game, Was before my time however I have visited various non league grounds and felt as if I had gone back in time when football was proper and a working man's game.
( Curzon Ashton FC,Lancaster City FC,Burscough FC)

So here are a few pictures of crowds/terraces which make the game a world away from what it is nowadays and it was not that long ago if you think about it.

The famous Kop at Anfield.

Crystal Palace fans 

What used to be a common sight.

Maybe one day we will see the re-introduction of the Terrace with safe standing in leagues such as the Bundasleague in Germany.

We shall wait and see.

Day Trip.

Went up to Lancaster with the girlfriend to see the mother, And had a nice little day out as well, Saw the Castle, Had a nice meal and some crazy Japanese beer ( which turns out is the only japanese beer available on draft in Lancaster and the surrounding area) saw some cool graffiti on a memorial, Had some rather nice beer in a 300 year old pub, Would love to go up again soon.
