As a Wigan fan, it's totally disheartening to see what's happened since June.Congratulations !!
Doncaster losing helps your lot too.
Jesus Wigan is in serious freefall though..
From being in the top flight and winning the Cup Final through to a likely plummet to League Two.
Another Pompey. Sad to see really.
I think this may have been the season (perhaps the previous season) I sat down at Grandmother's place with the newspaper and her Atlas of Great Britain and tried to located every team in the Atlas. I also selected a team from each Division to follow, unawares of the whole promotion/relegation thingy.
Didn't seem that long ago we were talking about Bradford being in the relegation zone.In the meantime things have started tightening at the top with ten teams within 9 points and all with at least one game in hand over leaders Cambridge and even 11th placed Bradford City is closing the gap, they are 3pts behind Carlisle having won five of their last six and with games in hand over most teams above them.
Yeah, Bradford looked in real trouble early in the season, but since they changed Managers in December (IIRC) they have been one of the form teams in the league, they have actually won seven and drawn two of their last 10 games, which is the best form line in the league. They have a couple of mid table teams in the next week which a definitely winnable, before they have a run against some fellow promotion aspirants included Carlisle at Brunton Park on the 13th. I'm not sure they are close enough to make the automatic promotion spots, but because of the evenness of the league I won't discount it, but they are within striking distance of the playoff spots and recent form would suggest they could progress from there.Didn't seem that long ago we were talking about Bradford being in the relegation zone.
League One is honestly not as easy a league to escape from as you would think. Leeds had to spend a couple of years of hell there.Silver lining is fans will get some ground ticks next season. Our race is done. McCann needs to go. Criminally underperforming two seasons in a row.
No it's just the manager.League One is honestly not as easy a league to escape from as you would think. Leeds had to spend a couple of years of hell there.
But aside from the Gaffer, isn't Hull's main problem your vindictive and penny pinching owner who has hardly put much funds into the club and gaffer into buying players ?
Hull's current situation does remind a bit of Leeds under Ken Bates, least you guys didn't go into administration though, but it really sucks.
