WSC pre-season preview 2015/16 – Wigan Athletic
1. Realistically, how will you do?
Very difficult to predict as there’s been a huge turnover in playing staff and we have a new untried manager in Gary Caldwell and the youngest Chairman in the Football League. Our naïve Chairman David Sharpe has made a rod for his own back by saying: “I don’t just want to win this league. I want to smash it and get 100 points.” I’ll be pleasantly surprised if we make the play-offs.
2. Which teams did you like and dislike most last season?
Liked Bournemouth and Middlesbrough for the football they played and disliked Millwall for their horrible fans.
3. What was the best moment of last season?
Did we have any? The fans atmosphere at Brentford despite already being relegated.
4. What was the worst moment of last season?
In a season of worst moments: Malky Mackay’s appointment; Dave Whelan trying to defend Mackay but only making matters worse; being relegated for the second time in two seasons capped it all.
5.Which company / organisation would be the most appropriate sponsor for your club? (e.g. could also mean shirt sponsors, perimeter advertising etc)
Dreams – it’s like we’ve just been slapped awake after a long magical one.
6. We’d like your prediction for next season’s League table.
