Remember the days of Jimmy Bullard, Pascal Chimbonda, Graham Kavanagh?
Latics fans didn’t expect their team to win every match - indeed they didn’t - but they were entertaining and they did try. They did fight for every ball and respond to the manager.
Not so now. Where has the fun gone out of this Premier League adventure? Just look on the fans’ faces during every game. Fear, apprehension, despair. It’s supposed to be enjoyable to watch a football game. Not so at the DW these days. All credit to Mr Whelan for staying loyal to Martinez. But the time has come to be loyal to the many Latics fans who have just had enough.
