A week is a long time in football
As someone once said.
It is now a week until D Day, and I’m content, or at least accepting, that the club will require every minute of that whole week to make signings. It’s the way the window appears to work and the expectation is that the final day, hours and minutes of this summer’s will be extra chaotic.
Jim White will need an extra pot of coffee that morning ☕️
We have another game in that time, at home to Crewe on Saturday. The Valley home numbers were down 1,800 on last Saturday against those that watched the Sheffield Wednesday game, one that was also televised. Crewe’s travelling numbers will be half of Wigan’s I expect, so possibly an attendance down around the 12,000 mark.
We all love a lift, and don‘t we need one, and the club has the rest of this week to encourage fans and relight the spark that is flickering like a tee light bought from the pound shop.
You know what I’d like in the meantime, and it maybe a little needy, but how about some kind of statement, an update, something to buy into. I mean Roland told us nothing, but Thomas likes engagement, so how about some honesty and redacted expectation management?
Even if it is Thomas’ de-facto executive Ged Roddy who addresses us. I think we’d all like to get to know him better.
A week can be a long time in football. Let’s see what the next seven days brings.
