Spanish investors prepared to buy Wigan Athletic even if they are relegated

Posted on February 17, 2021 in WAFC

Wigan Athletic’s Spanish bidders are prepared to stay patient in their bid to take control of the club. The Greater Manchester outfit were one of the in-form teams during the backend of the 2019/2020 Championship season, but were still relegated after the final matchday due to the 12-point deduction for entering administration.

Their return to League One has been far from fruitful after the exodus of key players over the summer and they are currently languishing at the bottom of the table with just eight points, five adrift of safety. The Spanish investors placed their bid to buy Wigan more than two months ago, but the EFL have yet to give the green light for them to takeover. (more…)

League One club Wigan Athletic have been in the relegation zone for the majority of this season as they have paid the price for a poor start to the season until the last two games. Wigan Athletic have shown signs of revival in the last two games against Sunderland and Accrington Stanley in the third tier of club football in England.Wigan Athletic would be hoping to continue that revival ahead of the home clash with Rochdale. A win over Rochdale will make it three victories on the trot for the former FA Cup champions who suffered relegation from the English Championship at the end of the last campaign.

The two wins recorded from the last two games have taken Wigan Athletic closer to the places outside the relegation zone. As things stand, Wigan Athletic arenow two points away from final safe place on the league standings after the Latics recorded six points from the last two games. Wigan Athletic are second from bottom on the league table with 14 points from 16 games, while Swindon Town, who occupy the last safe place have played one game more than the Latics with two more points.

Spanish Investors Can Take Over Wigan Athletic

Posted on November 17, 2020 in WAFC


Money is very important for any of the sports clubs for the maintenance of their team. Thus a Spanish investor wants to take over Wigan Athletic and is waiting for approval from the authorities of the English Premier League. In this process, they are getting help from the former boss of the team, Roberto Martinez. He helped Wigan Athletic to win the FA Cup beating Manchester City in 2013.

The day has been written with golden letters in the history of the club. He has initiated the talks with the club from the investors and is helping them to decide the strategy to take over the league one club. After his honeymoon with Wigan Athletic, Martinez went to Everton and from there he went to be the coach of the Belgium national team. But he still had a place in his heart for Wigan and that has paid off for the League One club having an opportunity to have investors for them.


Paul Cook Determined To Seal League One Title With Wigan Athletic

Posted on June 10, 2018 in Wigan News

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook remains determined to seal the League One title next week after being held to a 1-1 draw by AFC Wimbledon in the penultimate game of the season. The Latics had the opportunity to lift the title after second-placed Blackburn Rovers succumbed to an away defeat to Charlton Athletic, but it wasn’t to be.


Speaking after the game, he said:”I can’t grumble, we didn’t play well in the first half. It’s tough these days, you get over the line and promoted and there’s a sense of achievement, but there’s so much more to play for. We created numerous chances and the keeper made a couple of great saves, any other day we would have won the game. We can have a good rest this week and put everything into our preparations to make sure we finish the season with a smile.” (more…)


Wigan Athletic Boss Believes Club Have Lost Their Mojo

Posted on April 25, 2018 in Wigan News

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook believes his side have lost a little bit of their mojo after conceding three goals during their recent League One draw against Scunthorpe United. The Latics took the lead on two occasions during the first-half through Chey Dunkley and Will Grigg, but they were pegged back by a Tom Hopper brace prior to the break.

Following the interval, the home side found themselves behind after Ivan Toney’s 53rd-minute effort, but substitute Gary Roberts ensured that Wigan levelled the scores three minutes from time. After shipping just 13 goals in the first 28 games on the league campaign, the Latics have now let in 10 in the space of just five games, which Cook is worried about.


David Moyes stresses Wigan Athletic defeat was not a shock

Posted on March 23, 2018 in WAFC Wigan News

West Ham United manager David Moyes has stressed that the Hammers’ FA Cup fourth round exit versus Wigan Athletic may not be considered as an upset as the club only had a scattering of their Premier League players. The east London outfit were without the services of Andy Carroll, Marko Arnautovic, Mark Noble and Manuel Lanzini, and this cost them dearly as they bowed out of the Cup competition with a 2-0 defeat at the DW Stadium.

Speaking after the game, he said: “People shouldn’t be maybe that surprised because if you look at the team we played, I don’t think our team is necessarily a Premier League team. I think we had a scattering of Premier League players. Then we had young players, who’re on their way to trying to become good footballers. Maybe some of them, in time, will go on to be top Premier League players, but at this point in time it’s not the case.”


Wigan Go Top of the Table with Rotherham Win

Posted on January 26, 2018 in Wigan News

Wigan Athletic were able to go top of the League One after managing a 3-1 victory over Rotherham. Paul Cook’s team came into the game after having the chance to top the table even at this early stage in the season. They had a comfortable victory in the end. Will Grigg provided the opening goal in the 14th minute, but Wigan did not have the lead for long as David Ball came up with an equaliser after just two minutes. However, Wigan’s dominance in the game was clear when they responded through several crosses. It ultimately led to the goal from Alex Bruce in the 28th minute.

This was a key goal and it probably ended the resistance of Rotherham, who were under heavy pressure from the Latics for much of the game. The away team were able to get a decisive lead in the game when Jacobs came up with the third goal of the evening in the 60th minute. The two-goal advantage proving too big for the home team. Wigan ended up having only 11 shots on goal against the 15 from Rotherham, but the away team were clearly the winners when it came to accuracy. Wigan had an excellent five shots on target compared to just two from Rotherham.
