I was hearing this in the pub last night (and not for the first time):

1. They're not really injured, Wane's just keeping them back till the business end of the season.

2. He did it last year too.

3. It's an insult to season ticket holders who paid good money to watch the first team and are now being fobbed off with the reserves.

Protestations that we are champions and world champions, that injuries are part and parcel of the game, and that other club's suffer them too, seem to fall on deaf ears. As does the fact that those 'reserves' you are watching are the George Williams's of tomorrow.



Just how widespread in Wigan is this lunacy? It's like the flat-earthers or the Obama 'birther' people! :lol:

I find it hard to believe more than a few people hold that view, ie most people have common sense

Did Wane just forget to recall Sam, Mac, Joel, Clubb, Manfredi for the play offs/Final then?

F*ck as thick!

I'll know not to bother in future. :(

Seemed to me a perfectly reasonable topic; I was interested to hear if the kind of talk I'd heard was widespread in the town. Instead, just a load of 'shoot the messenger'.

I would question our training methods - season upon season we have more injuries than other clubs.

If its not that, then perhaps we need to look at how we conduct medicals before signing players - again, many of them seem to spend time in the treatment room soon after signing. Or perhaps they just didn't train at their previous clubs like they train at Wigan, so refer to the point above.

Of course, we could just be unlucky with injuries every single season.

Wane and his staff have carried out a comprehensive review of all the injuries and concluded that there isn't anything they could change to improve things. Most of the injuries are picked up in games and they cover a wide range of injuries too. From TLs jaw to Batemans shoulder Sutton's eye to Gildart's back to MMc ankle to Flower's Achilles and so on. If there was a pattern it could be addressed. Unfortunately it is just down to bad luck

No hell below us, above us only pie"(John Ono Lennon born Wigan 1940)

There's a good interview with Ian Lenagan on Wigan t.v. where he goes through the situation in detail.

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.
