Analyzing the Attackers
A massive shortage of goals saw us tumble to relegation last season. Well we were promised a 20 a goal season striker and we have signed one, the question is, is he and the rest of our forwards up to the test?
Mastering the Midfield
One of the clubs massive weak points last season after players leaving the club, a deep reconstruction was and could still be needed to help us do well in League One.
Deciding the Defense
With our best defender from last season returning back to parent club Hull City and with other set to leave there was needed rebuilding in our defensive game and Gary Caldwell as very much delivered.
Meet The Keepers
With the season now less than two weeks away, I begin the countdown and look at the squad; starting with those crazy goalkeepers.

Rochdale 2-1 Wigan Athetic
The last of our pre-season friendlies on English soil saw Wigan make the trip to Spotland to face Rochdale. Uwe Rosler taking the chance to take a few of our younger players and to give Grant Holt a chance to impress up front.
Wigan Athletic 2-1 Besiktas
Our one and only home friendly of pre-season gave us and Uwe Rosler a great chance to look at and assess the squad ahead of the forthcoming season. I think most would agree we liked what we saw.
Taking a Look at The Championship Odds
With the start of the 2014/15 season less than a month away I thought I would have a loot at just where the bookmakers are expecting Wigan to finish this season, and just how we stack up against the rest of the teams in the Championship.
Pre-season Round Up
With six games over the course of a month, the lads couldn’t be in better shape going into the first game of the season. With five wins and one defeat the clubs and players are in excellent form; so how is the team shaping up?
Season Review: The Key Players
This seems a bit early really as a lot could happened between now and the end of the transfer window, and with it likely that Victor Moses will be on his way out. Who else could join? Or even go?
Season Preview: The Key Fixtures
Well it is always the cliche to focus on one game at a time, and just try your best from August to May. Yet we the fans have to look wider to see the times when we can expect all the defeats and when we can expect all those fabulous victories......
Season Preview: The Line Up
