All the Information from the Past Season
Was it Their Season?
Ten months ago, as we started to slowly build our squad over the summer, and with the opening weekend of the season three weeks away I picked four players who I felt would need to have a big season to start pushing on in their career's.
Historical Season For Wigan Athletic
Season Review: HistoricalWe thought the 2012/13 season was a big one, well 2013/14 turned out to be just as big. We are Wigan Athletic and we are making history!
Report Cards: Attackers
The last part in our report series. With the fixtures tomorrow and the look now shifting towards the new season, one last look at what has been won't hurt.
Report Cards: Central Midfielders
We are closing in on finishing the end of season reports and the fourth part of the report card series goes to the central midfielders. The hardest workers in the team here at Wigan, working tirelessly to keep hold of the ball.
Report Cards: Wing Backs
A position used more on the continent yet under Roberto Martinez the two wide men are expected to work up and down the pitch one second attacking and the next defending our back line. In this position we have seen the rebirth of one of our players.
Report Cards: Centeral Defenders
Its been a hard season for our defenders. For most it have been a year to forget with injuries, and for others it has been a year to forget with the significant large amount of goals we conceded (a total of 73 League goals).
Report Cards: The Goalkeepers
We start of team break down of the season with the goalkeepers. There have been three keepers who have featured for Latics this season. None of them could really be blamed for our relegation this season.
Player of the Season: Shaun Maloney
This has been a long post in the coming, after a season which has seen s relegated and won our first ever piece of major silverware, the man who we said was at the heart of it all was Shaun Maloney.
2012/13 Wigan Athletic Season Review: Part 2
We left part one with Latics having won their final game of 2012, as we over came a struggling Aston Villa 3-0 to build hope for the rest of our season as players came back from injuries.
2012/13 Wigan Athletic Season Review: Part One
Part one of the season review, and here we look at the first half of the season. As Wigan's new players looked to adapt quickly to life in the Premier League could we manage to get points on the board?
Pie Eaters Footie Player of the Season
One week on from Wigan's final game of the season, it is time to take a step back and look at the season. Currently manager Roberto Martinez is doing the same with his future in the balance. So to start our season reviews its the player of the season
This is the look back at what our pre-season training and friendlies have shown the coaching staff and whether or not we can handle ourselves in the new season. So this is the evaluation of all the clubs efforts and just how good a grade the club is at with only two weeks till the start of the Premier League.
Season Review: Part 3
Has been a long time coming this post, I have been looking at just how many times I can say well done to the players and the manager. Because the turn around in not only performances but results in the last three months of the season was fantastic. That saw a team stone dead last, only lose three times in the seasons last fifteen games, what a remarkable feet.
2011/12 Season Review: Part Two
So I finished yesterday with us winning 2-1 at Sunderland in dramatic fashion. With the man of the moment being a surprising Jordi Gomez who had scored two goals in his last two games, and was controlling our midfield from back to front. Isn't it weird how times change. You felt like it wouldn't be long till he was back to his own ways, and the team the same for that matter.
Pie Eaters Footie's Goal of the Season
In the end the result was really the run away winner. Getting nearly 50% of the votes, Shaun Maloney's curling shot against Manchester United won our goal of the season and rightly too. The goal is a great one to watch but not only that, it was the goal that lead us to victory over United for the very first time.
2011/12 Season Review Part 1
Well finally after a busy week for me, and two weeks since the end of the season. Its time to kick back and look at just what happened out their in what proved to be a very long and draining season at times.
Goal of the Season
Ah goals, those things that win football matches and where all of the ball must cross the line. Alas we have not seen many goals this season (that is in Wigan actually scoring them), although towards the end of the season we did get significantly better at finding the target.
Pie Eaters Footie Player of the Season
You voted long and hard last week, and the winner changed more or less everyday. But after seven days, and five posts about players who have all had great seasons. We can now reveal who won our player of the season award. It is of course the most prestigious award for any Latics player to win.
Player of Season Candidate: Victor Moses
Well the fifth and final installment of the player who have had excellent season for Latics. And I am finishing up with our resident starlet, Victor Moses is of course a player that is under a lot of speculation and looks set to leave this summer as he won't sign a new contract. Or more his agent is advising him not to bother, rather stupidly.
Player of the Season Candidate: Maynor Figueroa
We are here though to talk about a player who has played in about every left sided position this season. Personally I feel that it has been our Honduras left back's best season for a couple of years. Maynor Figueroa had looked slow and was caught out often last year.
Player of the Season Candidate: Ali Al Habsi
I missed one yesterday in looking at Latics's player of the season. So instead you are going to get today. The first of the two is our resident ever present in goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi. Would you believe me if I said he hasn't missed a game since signing.
Player of the Season Candidate: James McCarthy
The younger and Irish of our two James' has been a player that we have expected big things from since his arrival in 2010. Yet the midfielder has yet to spark into the explosive form that he had looked on the verge of in 2011 before Fabrice Muamba ended it witha crunching tackle.
Player of the Year Candidate: Gary Caldwell
So first up to have their season looked at, is our captain and the clubs winner of player of the season. As I type this, he is winning our vote. And really it is no surprise that a player who has become a fan favourite would win this year award.
Player of the Season
It’s that time of year again. Where after a very long and hard slog, we come down to saying what our best bits were, it gives that lighter tinge even on the darkest of seasons. So today and for the rest of this week, I am looking for you player of the season.
