I'm sad to see Wigan let a player like McIlorum go.
It's not that I think Mickey is he best hooker I have ever seen play for the club, it's just that it looks like WIgan's plot loss issues are gathering pace.
Just like all WIgan fans, I want to see a mixture of local players, and strong players from outside the area, but Wigan seem to have taken the decision to have a huge number of local players in the team, regardless of how good they are.
If you look at the state of WIgan's player recruitment over the last few years, can anyone actually tell me what the plan was, or is?
I know Wigan fans that are losing patience with the club over this, and the lack of any "top" signings over the last few years. The message from the club just seems to be, "Give us your season ticket money guys. We won't be signing any exciting players to increase your enjoyment, so you can sit back in your DW seat, relax, and content yourself that at least the dross we are serving up for you is consistent".
