Donald Trump, Wigan Athletic, Fake News or Real news, Let’s take the positives.

Let’s take the Positives.  THERE ARE SOME.


Ok, so I’ll agree with you.  We’re not going through our best season.  But we’re not having our worst, I don’t think.  So far, we’ve only had 3 Managers.  It could be worse.  We could still have Vincent Tan breathing down our necks; we could still have Malky denying everything.


We may have appeared to flounder against Nottingham Forest, but a few of the lads put in a lot of hard work.  Sam Morsey was so knackered at the end of the game that he couldn’t make his way to the changing room.  Neil Warnock again fearlessly gets in the way of any cannon ball shot that comes his way, suffers concussion and carries on, McDonald is everywhere and Dan Burn, well if you love Dan Burn stand up.  The New ‘Keepers Save Penalties’ and also do good saves and are assured with catching.  The link below shows a Wigan ‘keeper at his mighty best.

But we must eliminate the negative; rumour had it that DW recently met up with a certain Donald Trump.  The latter suggested that if DW renamed the DW to the “blue and WHITEHOUSE, UK”, DT would arrange it that we’d get out of the mire.  Neither Mary nor Pat were obliging.  DW suffered the DTs.


It’s already painted for us.

A wall is to be built in front of our goal and there will be only one way for them to break our defence.

We did actually play very well against Derby! And we had a lot of fun at Burton.

You’ve got to accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
But don’t mess with mister inbetween

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
have faith, a pandemonium
Libel to walk up on the scene

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the Whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
just when everything looked so dark

They said we better
accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
latch on to the affirmative
But don’t mess with mister inbetween

We once won a cup.


FAKE NEWS V REAL NEWS – or just alternative facts – you decide.

There has been a lot in the news recently about either fake news or not.  Football is knee deep in it.

Next time your found, with your chin on the ground
Theres a lot to be learned, so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think he’ll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can’t
Move a rubber tree plant

But he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes
He’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your gettin’ low
‘Stead of lettin’ go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call, and your back’s to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he’d punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin’ that dam

‘Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your feelin’ bad
‘stead of feelin’ sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

Having been to Wembley with Wigan I thought I’d go to the Ajax stadium so I’m cycling to Amsterdam from Wigan with raising money for Prostate Cancer charities and research.

If you’d like to sponsor me you could easily, as easy as Wigan winning Division 1, pop along to my ‘Just Giving Page and most men and a lot of women will be very grateful.
