  1. On a serious note glad the Club is starting to do this - trying to sell more sponsorship, pop-up store in meadowhall. Perhaps the commercial and retail side is slowly moving into the 21st century.

    Ref & South Stand Linesman

    You haven't been on Owlstalk long have you - as if anyone has any idea around here :D Maybe I've seen so many utterly poo refs at Hillsborough that this one approached competent

    and he gave us 11 minutes extra for our money

    Ref & South Stand Linesman

    I didn't hear any boos at all from the Kop. I think I must have blanked the handball out - I do vaguely remember some shouts a few times. But despite you view that the ref was awful, there's been no thread until today and no clamour from the Owlstalk meltdown crew. FACT

    Ref & South Stand Linesman

    He did have a lack of yellows - but rather that then ruin a game with so many cards. Gace us loads of decisions that were 50-50. Can't remember the 2nd half penalty shout tbh - only the first half one. So you list of 3, 1 is dubious and the other subjective. Also you sit in the south stand.
  6. We play so much better with Hutch in the team. We haven't got anyone else who can effectively play his role in front of the back four. Without him, Bannan ends up back there all the time

    What did get so wrong?

    From a Wigan fans forum

    I think we have playes in the middle and up front who are comfortable on the ball - we we don't have the players to play out from the back. I'm happy with that. Nice to see a well thought out reasonable post from a fan.

    Ref & South Stand Linesman

    I thought we got everything from the ref yesterday. Makes a nice change. Maybe why I thought you was ok! Agree about the linesman though. And not seen the penalty claim we had when Reach was through
  10. I'm absolutely certain of it. I think some refs want to make ALL the decisions. I agree the standard is poor - they are just so inconsitant and make basic errors. The real issue is lack of accountability for me. That said, I love to give the officials stick during a match - part of the experience for me. And the close offside etc is part of the game and post-match I can accept this. I don't think officials are out to cheat Wednesday - I do think some officials prefer themselves to be centre of attention. I wouldn't want to be a ref though. I remember watching Rotherham vs Preston a couple fo seasons ago - work hospitality thing. It was a dull game and I remember the rovrum fans getting irate over a ref decision - which was bang on the correct one. Both sets of supporters gave the ref stick - yet for a lot of it he was bang on. Emotions rule for us footie fans
  11. The most consistent thing about Wednesday in the last 15 years: Owlstalk Wednesday Win = we're gonna win the league Wednesday lose = uncontained meltdown
