Not to try and take anything away from Lam but our performances of late have really shown the steel that Wane built in to the core of this team over the years. The defence and the willingness of the backs to run through brick walls with the ability to keep turning up making tackle after tackle, set after set near our own line is mainly down to the work of Wane. Lam can take a lot of credit for varying the attack and the much better attacking shape but the determination and doggedness comes from the Wane era. We must be a horrible team to play against when we play like we did tonight. The only problem i fear is that we are due an off day after such a long winning streak and mammoth effort to get second place.

All your post does is take things away from Lam. He's the coach, not Wane. They aren't playing for Wane. To suggest the defence we see today is mainly due to a past coach is ridiculous.

if that’s how you look at things then you can also thank Wane for losing 5 from 6 at the start of the season. Last nights win had nothing whatsoever to do with Wane, and to quote Mrs Slocombe “ I am unanimous in this”

Rubbish. It was Lams fault when we were poor, now it's Wanes coaching when we've improved?

Wane's influence can't have rubbed off entirely.

Lam has made all kinds of noticeable improvements, but Wigan coming good in the final quarter of the season is very reminiscent of Wane's strategy.

That said, it would be ridiculously churlish not to mostly credit Lam. This is a very exciting team to watch, and he is the spark behind that.

Maguire was the big culture change IMO rather than Wane.

There’s no doubt that steel we show at this time of year is ingrained in the players from the days of Maguire and then Wane. I do wonder how much influence Matty Peet has had on it as well with him coming back to the club mid season. I think the three young lads take a lot of credit as well for the influence they’ve had since coming in. They’ve been 100 miles a minute since coming in to the side and it’s lifted everybody.

Funny how all praise for the teams success is all down to Lam. But, for some, all Wanes success was down to Madge... :THINK:

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.

Madge was undoubtedly responsible for turning the club around. No question. I don’t however think Madge will ever be a coach that has a long stay at any club.

Wane brought with him a fantastic passion for the club and knowledge of the club, and whilst his on field tactics may not have been the most entertaining he got results and ultimately that is what his time at Wigan will be judged on.

Lam...who knows? We won’t really be in a position to judge till next year fully, however after struggling initially to put his stamp on the team he seems to have done that now and early signs look very positive.

Last night in the first half I felt particularly was a very Wane style performance. One out grind out a result, win the arm wrestle. Second half I felt the lads came out with an instruction to speed the game up, move away from the arm wrestle and play a bit of rugby. The performance then spoke for itself.

I know it didn’t come off but I loved the philosophy of Williams chip for Burgess near our own line. Great to see.

Madge and Wane have both been fantastic for our Club. Lam, too early to say, however given the difficult circumstances in which he took on the job and where we are now, he may very well go on to be regarded as the best of the lot.

The King is dead. Long live the King.
The culture of the club has been developed over decades. SW played a significant part in that but the club moves on and not much point in continually looking backwards.
