Luton 2 Wigan Athletic 1
Another predictable defeat, in the closing minutes when Wigan Athletic players in away games typically look both clueless and legless.There was only one team trying to play football in this game: it wasn’t Wigan. Fightball/long ball once again failed under Paul Cook.
Paul Cook’s reaction was as honest as ever, but the buck stops with him.
Let’s take a look at how fans reacted to the match through the message boards and social media.

I won’t be going on Wednesday. For the first time in 40 years I am in absolute despair with what is going on at this club.

I feel sick, I was expecting this to happen, but you would of thought, it can’t happen again, surely it has happened to much to happen again, but it did, this is gone beyond bad luck, gone way beyond excuses, there is something very wrong with the fitness or mentality of the management and players late in games. This is something that has not been addressed, what is going on at Wigan, what on earth does it take to stop this capitulation? This is an issue that has gone beyond anything imagined.

….something wrong on the coaching side when we collapse, dead on our feet continually 75 mins on and look way below our oppositions fitness levels .It’s a results business remember and he’s a stain on the name of our club. The useless money taking executives have allowed this to fester for 12 months………you cannot defend him. He has turned some of these players into zero confidence nervous wrecks…..Said it for ages ……he stays …we are screwed on the pitch and financially off it…..

We are so unfit. It’s shocking that a professional team at this level is this unfit, to little or too much training?
Dudestalker on the Latics Speyk Forum commented:
If he survives this we are well and truly screwed, total clueless clown. Singlehandedly destroying the players confidence, and the fan base.

The types of goals we concede are dreadful as well. Derby aside, they are all from rank, panic defending and are goals we really shouldn’t be conceding.
