This story seems never ending.
We might have got lucky with timing; the pandemic might be putting a few off. There again as well know, there aren't any other SS's out there.In all seriousness, it needs sorting. You can see why their fans are so fed up. I think we got very lucky with our Receiver.
Hmm I'm not too sure, as although their fanbase was tiny pre Whelan they've had great success inc an FA Cup win and made football (in the town) a viable option. Granted they are never going to get great gates at whatever level they play at, but I think they've enough to make it work at L1 level.Let’s be honest, they just don’t have the history and kudos behind them, and insufficient fans for someone to take a punt. A Non league restart beckons.
No history? They have won the FA Cup. And a lot more recently than we did.Let’s be honest, they just don’t have the history and kudos behind them, and insufficient fans for someone to take a punt. A Non league restart beckons.
But if you compare them with us, we are the only professional sporting club in the town, they aren’t and they aren’t the main club either. Their success under FA Cup Dave was the only point in the clubs history when they’ve been out of the shadow of Wigan Rugby League. That and when they signed Joe Garner obviously...No history? They have won the FA Cup. And a lot more recently than we did.
Their main problem is that they are a small town stuck between Liverpool and Manchester. Hence the Rugby League affiliation. Same with Warrington, Leigh, St Helens and such.
