Conveniently forgotten the mid 80s to mid 90s???

Bringing up stuff from 30/40 years ago. :lol: :lol: :lol:

At least Wigan managed success then hence you’ve bottled up jealousy all these years later.

Which players have Warrington signed who’ve improved since signing for them ?

You could sign Nathan Cleary and I’m convinced he’d be bang average as soon as he pulls on the Wire shirt.

They go because they normally have the highest offer. Down tools and go through the motions (George Williams, Gareth Widdop etc)

And you wonder why you aren’t successful?

Think most Wire fans will agree with me.

I recall all the excitement and laughing at Wigan fans when you signed Williams. How’s that worked out?

Fitzpatrick seems to love “getting one over on Wigan” he’s comments when Gelling signed showed this.

Wigan will go about winning trophies with a home grown coach with a team packed with home grown talent.

Saints to their credit will do the same.

Nicholson should become a great player but he’s left an elite performance culture and entered a poor one.


Also agent Briers is having the time of his life.

Our scholarship has just beaten saints away….we probably signed them all from a Wigan crèche.

Now about this “home grown coach” at Saints…
As for “agent Briers”, what does that actually mean in this context?
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Peet's titty lip has come out big style. Why have a dig at our academy? All he needed to say was that there were sorry to see him go and wish him all the very best.

Pretty ironic him having a go at our academy in regards to signing Matty Nicholson, 18 from Halifax.

Well he's chased the money elsewhere cos he can't get in the team ahead of another homegrown wigan talent, in Morgan smithies, who I think is also from Halifax
