Editors Blog: Wigan's Best Starting Eleven - Attackers

Been a busy week and so now we are finally closing in on what you think our best line up is. All that is now left is our attacking three who go out to try and score the goals. Well we are lacking them, so who would you choose?

Gareth Copley

Callum McManaman

One of those players who can change a game in a single moment. Showed his talents in the FA Cup win in 2013, since then though he has struggled over past season or so. However this season he has started to look back to his best or did, the winger bagged four goals and looked to be on top of his game. That has slowly dropped off, but he still cases teams a hell of a lot of a trouble.

Surely he is a starter in your team?

James McClean

The controversial Irish winger may not be everyone's cup of tea but for me he gives you that extra edge. McClean has a wicked left foot and can deliver some great crosses into the box, combine that with his passion and never say stop attitude. For me he may not have a completely polished end product, but seeing him charge down the wing at you will be an intimidating thing for some defenders.

Starter for you or not?

Martyn Waghorn

Last season this guy was a must start, brought all those qualities that as Wigan fans we love to see 110% effort and then that ability to get a goal when we needed one. His record at the back end of last season for us was very good when it comes to our strikers records. This year though he has slipped out of the starting 11 and the bench at times.

Would Waghorn make it back into your team?

Marc-Antoine Fortune

Told by the Uwe Rosler that his time at Wigan Athletic was coming to an end, and therefore he would have very limited chances to play this season. Well with both of our news striker signings struggling to adapt and find the back of the net, Rosler came a crawling and places Fortune back into the starting line up.

Fortune gives us a player who knows English football inside out and has that unique ability to hold the ball up and bring other players into the game. Fortune may not score many goals, but he creates and awful lot of chances and links play very well.

Oriol Riera

Signed to score goals, and well he has scored one so far. I think though an assessment of Riera at the moment is kind of unfair, the striker was just getting into his stride with the team then was dropped out and not given a chance to continue his good form. Its like that fir most players they need to have a spell where they play week in week out and are given the chance to grow.

Under Rosler that doesn't seem to happen, would it with you?

And Delort

Young, talented and very raw at the moment; Delort though is defiantly a talent for the future. At the moment though Delort doesn't seem to have got it all clicked into place yet here at Wigan. Strong though and powerful both on and off the ball, it is going to be a case of him developing technically and learning how to play in the English game. Much like a lot of Rosler's signing over the summer, someone who has the potential to be something special.

Does he make the cut for you?
