    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    Most folk are seemingly expecting a close season like every other in this league. Surely it won’t be? For a start it will presumably be shorter and who will be forking out big fees and offering multi year contracts for Championship players?

    Just one win from those or even a couple of draws would have had us in with a chance. But that capitulation like you saw in the second half at Barnsley is never too far away with this team, which is why we never make that final leap.

    We can only be thankful that Dack left his ripped jeans down south when he came for talks...

    All this about ‘dynamic play’, ‘front foot’, wide strikers, ‘dominating the ball’ and all the rest of it. But three and a half years on, we are still at our best with Graham as a focal point. Just a shame his career at this level is winding down as he is still the main man as far as I’m concerned.

    Unfortunately for us, 23 other Chief Execs and managers don’t need to be patient as they’ll have had months of discussion over budgets, so they’ll be having their usual headstart, whilst we wait for Pune to lift its lockdown and Venky’s to Covid-Secure their offices...

    Not that I can see, most are still heavily advertising sales.

    Pretty much every other club has had them on sale for months. With thousands sold and millions in the bank for those clubs at a time when cash flow is vital. Our cash flow on the other hand will be pretty much zero. Who has the right approach Chaddy? Rovers, who have to get everything signed off late in the summer in an annual meeting halfway across the world, or pretty much every other Championship club who have proactively engaged their supporters and got them and their cash signed up early?

    Get out if it! There’s loads of Man Utd/Liverpool fans in Wigan, which you’ll know all too well living there, which is unsurprising as they were a non league club until the 80s and are unfortunately in the same boat as the other clubs in ‘Greater Manchester’. But ok Joe, I’ll leave it there and agree with you.

    Let’s see what happens with this ‘European scouting network’, two years they’ve been banging on about it and we must still have the most British and Irish squad in the league...

    There’s loads of football interest in Wigan... it’s just a load of them support Liverpool and Man Utd.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Got to say, I can’t say I see what Mercer sees, I can’t particularly feel much of a groundswell for him to go. The best thing to happen for the club, in terms of scrutiny, was that relegation, we are now a club ‘that was in League 1 not long ago’, so plodding along in Championship mid table with a nice fella like Mowbray and owners ‘who put more money in than Jack’ is fine for evermore with most fans I come across out there. Try and say you expect the club to strive for better and you are usually shot down as we are ‘a small club’. Thank you Venky’s, from the most successful town club in the country, the archetypal ‘big club in a small town’, to being grateful to those fools in Pune for not playing Fleetwood each year...

    Vast majority of clubs in the Championship have had their STs on sale for months and have sold thousands already. This, of course, aides their cash flow and keeps fans in the tent, who could otherwise have gotten out of the habit if fans spend 6/9 months plus out of grounds... as always, compare and contrast with Blackburn Rovers.

    Come on then Masher, what’s YOUR view for how this club moves forward, as you poo pooh every possible suggestion be it manager or owner.

    Not on here, but plenty in ‘real life’, that’s east Lancs, not Surrey.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    Raya dropped an odd, but yeah, a usually big howler. Walton is letting a soft goal in every other game. Plus, Raya was a young keeper full of potential learning his trade, and he was OURS. So I was comfortable with the odd clanger. Instead we’ve sold him for a pittance, he’ll be sold for at least treble what we got when Brentford cash in. And we get lumbered with a bang average stopper who costs us a load of points and then buggers off in a few weeks, leaving us with no first team keeper (assuming Leuts goes too) at all. Piss poor planning for such a vital position, but we can at least be grateful that his fee paid for half of Sam Gallagher.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    Ha! ‘The wider football world’, do me a favour! Nobody in football does a bad job, the pundits on Sky and his fellow managers will have been lauding Lee Johnson for the ‘great job he’s done’... until they’re sacked, then it’s ‘yeah it was probably time to freshen it up there’. Jobs for the boys.

    Why is having so much possession a good thing?

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    Everyone should stop taking him on. His WUM mask has slipped (it was hanging off already) with the constant ‘soccer’ posts. He’s now playing contrarian with every single post and suggestion - and his posts are getting sillier, must be tired, not as subtle. He’s an odd individual, but must be getting his kicks out it, but he’s making threads unreadable. *Mods* - I’m all for debate and differing views but it’s getting daft.
