Max Power – as the name would suggest – certainly made his mark during his three years with Wigan Athletic. After signing for Sunderland earlier this month, he returned to Euxton last week to clear out his locker and say his goodbyes. In this open letter published in the Wigan Observer, he revealed just how big a decision it was to leave...I dropped back in on Monday morning last week to say my goodbyes, and it was great to see everyone before going for good.I leave on very good terms, and that’s not always the case when players leave clubs.I sat down with Paul Cook and the staff, we had a good chat, and we all agreed it was the right time for it to happen.Obviously no-one’s ever guaranteed a place in the team, but when it becomes clear (following the signing of Lee Evans) it’s going to be hard to see yourself playing in the first team...There comes a point where you have to make a decision...there comes a point where you know your time’s … [Read more...] about Max Power’s emotional open letter to Wigan Athletic fans about his move to Sunderland

Jonathan Jackson admits Wigan Athletic will be moving up to a ‘second Premier League’ when they open their Championship campaign this weekend against Sheffield Wednesday. But the Latics CEO is backing Paul Cook and his players to continue the momentum from last term and prove they belong among the big boys.“It’s almost like a second Premier League next year with the teams we’re going to be facing,” Jackson told the Wigan Post.“It’ll be a real challenge, a real step up from League One, and we know that.“We think the squad we have is capable of playing in the Championship, although we have been adding depth to it so we have a team and a squad that can compete.“A number of players have the experience of playing in the Championship, and it won’t be a step into the unknown for them.

But even playing in games in the third division, we were getting crowds of over 40,000, it was crazy.“The support up there is … [Read more...] about Wigan Athletic ace Kal eyeing Gers return!
