I have no worries for the future - we may well add Hock, Hoffman, Lima, Finch and Quinn in place of Fielden's contract,


to be fair the paper that makes up the contract offers more go forward that the player himself.
foxes or poor people?

so we didn't sell all our seats, who have this year

To come to your defence, the game was not decalred as all ticket. When this happens, unless things have changed recently, then the Ground Safety Committee (police, fire, council, DW chief safety officer etc.) insist that a certain number of tickets are held back for walk ups. The police do not want a situation where they have angry groups of fans without tickets who they then have to try and squeeze into a full ground.

If the match is declared all ticket beforehand with no cash sales on the day then the situation is different.


Warrington therfore wouldn't have been given the full 5.5k tickets for the North Stand to sell and nobody in there right mind would have walked up at the last minute in that weather.

Indeed, and I would go further. Wire travelled in great numbers, especially given the weather and they have a semi and a probable final to look forward to. My point was a narrowly, some might say churlishly, pedantic one about massed hordes, when there were gaps.

Don't often have a go at individual players but Fielden was absolutely dreadful, in every respect. I felt nervous every time he had the ball (that's if he hadn't already knocked on by then).

If Wigan could have put in one or two big hits in reply mid-way through the second half yesterday they would have much increased the chances of it swinging back their way, and you want the senior props putting that sort of work in.

When is his contract up? I suspect he's a really decent bloke but he is no way up to it at the moment...

Fielden brought the situation onto his own head. Pointing at Morley; how futile. Play your own game and get one over your opposite number by sheer endeavour.

I've not stopped grinning since last night. I'm chuffed to bits with such a massive effort by Warrington, but the Wigan fans on here are rightly not going overboard about losing one game.

Do we have what it takes to repeat last night's show at least twice in the play offs when it really matters? Maybe.

Still think Myler makes a massive difference to us too, we have far more spark with him around.

Great result, still can't believe we were still in it after 20 mins, great defensive effort by all accounts.

However, we have a very big monkey to deal with next week, and tbh, until that monkey is gone, I won't really believe we're the real contenders we all want to be.
Gonna watch the 2001 match again later, and if anyone wants to do me a copy of that game last night, I won't refuse it, VHS or DVD.

From the clips on Sky sports news, Richards took his try well, made sure he got there, and what a pass to Westwood..... cool.gif

The Australian reports that Wigan will announce the signings of Lima, Hoffman and Finch on Monday. 2 world class forwards and an organising half back while keeping all of last night's team. Plus Hock and our young lads a year on.
It is a beautiful evening here. The long term forecast is set fair. biggrin.gif

I appreciate that massed ranks is to do with density rather than numbers, but it was a shame to see so many empty seats in the Wire end.

Quite disappointed to read your comments on the support. It was announced (on your precious Wigan board) that Wire had 600 seats left at the start of Friday, meaning that they had sold around 4k, based on a 4.8k capcity (5402 full capacity minus 10% H&S capacity reduction = 4,800(ish)- although this may have been 15%). This means that with the Friday sales Wire probably took around 4.3k, and Wigan took around 18.4k.

Considering the fact that you got 18,605 versus Quins at home, the fact that you attracted fewer fans to a game like this should be a worry? You probably had around 17k against Saints, so you are actually bang out of order attacking the empty seats in the Warrington end, which legally couldn't be sold.

Couldn't agree more with this, and love the fact that fans on here stilllove to rip him to pieces. His pace and energy around the middle of the park is a breath of fresh air for us!

Last night, had he had teh odd bounce he would have had a hat-trick.

Well done to Warrington, there defense in the 1st 20 mins won them the game.

Great hit by Harrison (I think) on Fielden, does he know what day it is yet. Also great commentry about his chin and ref all the people who have knocked him out, had a little chuckle over that.

Shut up you tart.

Or even better, try going to a game once every so often.

One of the most objective, unbiased fans I have ever bore testament to with his musings.

You really don't do yourself any favours.
