Could only watch on TV last night and they looked a lot more than 300 and made more noise than the Wigan fans.

Really? You can tell all that even though you only watched it on TV?

Maybe if you had actually been in the ground people would listen to your nonsense. I was in the ground, so I’m going to ignore your summary because it’s wrong.

There was definitely more than 300 Leeds fans.

 

I was there too, I’m sorry but the Wigan fans were like they were in a library all game, don’t take it as an insult they literally had nothing to cheer about.

Wigan need to sort their Match day experience out as a matter of urgency as it is absolutely dire.

And the match day experience at other SL grounds is first class?

I’m sorry but trotting out a rendition of “marching on together” does not equal a stunning match day experience.

I go to watch the match not to watch some deranged idiot in a stupid suit prance about or some half baked local band singing some cover versions.

Don’t take it as an insult but your fans are c—p and we are ace.

But maybe new or floating fans want more,the club is in decline on & off the pitch & is in need of a massive shakeup.

Who said anything was first class elsewhere.

Ive been to pretty much every away ground this year (bar Catalan) not one club does anything amazingly well, and I appreciate Covid has impacted game day but Wigans is as I say dire.

Dont take it personally (unless you are responsible for it) Take the 90s game V Leeds a few weeks back, a perfect game to celebrate the freat Wigan sides and clashes with Leeds in the 90s, what did we get? A rubbish Oasis tribute band, that was it, it was pathetic.

Wigan is the best known name in British RL, but they are failing to market themselves properly and the dwindling crowds show that.

Bury your head in the sand if you want but Wigan as s club have a lot of issues to fix up, and they seemed to think a poor rebrand was going to the heavy lifting, it never was they need to do more.

No need to strawman, I didn’t say the fans were ‘######’ did I.

Im not revelling in Wigans issues, far from it, A strong Wigan side on and off the field is a massive asset to the whole game.

If we're talking about the Wigan gameday experience one thing I did think was a bit poor was the way they dealt with the departing players on Thursday night.

Some really brief less than a minute interviews on the field at half time (which I could barely understand) is the entire thank you for their years of service? It seemed a little bit miserly really (and yes, I am comparing to Leeds who for some of their other faults I know do this sort of stuff quite well).

We could all learn so much from Leeds, and their astonishing fans. Maybe we could have a new section of the site where Leeds fans give seminars on their aceness? It could break the web.

Wigan need to learn something from someone, if you’re happy with your club declining that’s fine.

Forget Leeds if it annoys you so much, but, maybe look at how Hull KR are going about their business on and off the field, it’s the exact opposite of Wigan.

LOL would you like me to produce the long list of things I've complained about at Leeds on and off the field going back two decades or more on here and elsewhere?

But that's irrelevant tbh. Wigan are the flagship club for continued, persistent decline in fan numbers and, apparently, fan engagement over the past ten years. If you or Wigan are not willing to take tiny bit of suggestion about why that might be then there really is no hope for your club.

Another one been sucking lemons. I wasn't in the ground too busy fighting fires. Leeds fans wouldn't have to shout much to out sing your motley crew.

Well this thread has gone downhill 

It’s taken a bizarre turn where, having won the game, their “fans” are now turning on the Verve, George Formby, Haigh Hall, our pies, the colour of our shirts, all our fans, present or absent, and our match day “experience” - which you can assess whether you are in the ground or not... at this rate, it’ll be virtually impossible to support them against Saints. And I never thought I would write that.

There are certainly things Wigan need to improve, gameday experience might be one but if it is then that goes for every Super League club right? I mean unless every club has cancelled their fantastic gameday experience whenever I've visited the ground (which, admittedly, can't be ruled out) then every club needs to improve because it's pretty much the same wherever you go.

I think Hull KR are the only club that do anything different and they've just turned a big empty space they had in their ground (that most clubs don't have) into a convenient place to drink alcohol.

And really, everyone is there to watch the rugby, so what else do people really want from their gameday experience? I've been to football matches and their 'gameday experience' is exactly the same unless gameday experience improves with each post-match arrest.
