You are now one of us, hopefully you’ll be able to emigrate soon and live in a mudhut with the rest of us.We come from Wigan and we live in mud huts oo ah oo oo ah oo to be a Wiganer Reply mp December 5, 2014 great article mate. Reply Jake December 5, 2014 Very good article Reply Manfrom Pem December 5, 2014 Well put Dan. For one so young and so far from the game you display great insight into mentality and passion of Wigan Athletic supporters. We may be small in number but are greater than the fans of the other teams mentioned. We are strengthened by opposition to our club, both on the field and in the press, because we understand and accept our football roots and laugh at those pundits who scorn at our being and past successes. Long may you continue to follow us and hold tight because the journey is about to begin again and will be more rocky than ever.And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Reply ibbo December 5, 2014 Great article Dan you are a true fan, and like the rest of us you have hope and belief in your club. Like the Phoenix we will rise again, it may take some time but we will enjoy the journey.And that is the point, every small success will be savored. Unlike the glory hunters who are dissapointed if their team don’t win by a margin. Reply mrbowlerhat December 5, 2014 You’ve hit the nail on the head. The other side of the coin is Chelsea where even the current great side doesn’t seem to be generating any great enthusiasm or visible enjoyment (e.g. by way of singing at games) among their support.
