    Well, clearly not all managers would have done it because Parkinson didn't do it. So, that's one decision Johnson has made that has improved us. How are we explaining his use of substitutes, that has clearly changed the course of several games, then? What about selecting O'Nien at CB?

    So you keep posting we've blown promotion, like two years ago, but won't take a friendly bet ...

    ... says it all.

    I hope it does. We are specialists in failure. Yesterday’s result honesty the lowest I’ve felt over this club.

    Am I reading this right.....you wouldnt be bothered about winning the play off final, just because you couldn't be there?
    Maybe SAFCwhenitsuits might be a better username.

    He’s got some things right, I just didn’t fancy him from the start. Maybe I’m letting yesterday’s disappointment cloud my judgement, I would expect whoever is appointed to fail as it’s what this club does

    The uncertainty is frustrating, I’ve missed the match more than most, would be devastated to miss out on the final despite having more than 20 loyalty points. Will only be 5,000 of our fans there. It’s different not being there when no one else is.

    You make me laugh. Imagine saying nothing has changed but it's obviously different when referring to the change in ownership. One of the best examples of not having a ****ing clue that I've read on here, and that takes some doing.

    I hope he’s a success here, but in this league it means nothing with the salary cap etc. And look at the way Peterborough have got round the goalie situation. You get penalised for being a big club in this league.

    It hampers us, and whilst it’s been temporarily removed it will probably come about again in a different form for next season. So even if Dreyfus wants to spend 100 million in league one it’s largely irrelevant. We have to get out of this awful league.

    What salary cap? There isn't one. You're doing well at getting things hopelessly wrong today marra, keep it up.

    Will only effect a bare minimum of fans imo, However if full attendances were allowed it would have affected loads.

    I'll get back to the trenches now!!!

    There's always some affected.

    I'm pleased Wigan is now 6pm, which is 7pm my time, and means I can get to bed on a night when I'm up early for work the next day.
