Wigan under lights

Didn’t think I would be calling the visit of Wigan Athletic to The Valley a big game, but the Latics are one of the bigger fish in this division, with one of the largest player budgets, and a sizeable squad, which incidentally they have significantly trimmed following relegation and the end of their 4-year parachute payments that netted them a cool £59m.

The Latics are the first floodlit visitors to SE7 this season, and they surprisingly lost to early league leaders Shrewsbury on the weekend with Terrell Thomas and Will Grigg on the bench. Grigg came on but I’d expect Paul Cook to let him lose on us tomorrow. Grigg has just signed a new contract, which probably means he will move in the window for an even bigger fee than what we supposedly encountered in August.

Falling short in the window again

Like a broken record, with 7 days left until deadline day, judging by Karl Robinson’s comments this morning it is looking more and more likely that the owner will leave his manager with another unbalanced and incomplete squad. Not for the first time, the first eleven looks very competitive and Robinson to his credit has created a playing system and a spirit which could take this team a long way towards the goal of promotion, except beyond the first team and three or four others it falls off a cliff.

Will Grigg be on fire for the Addicks?

With apologies for stealing a Kyle-like headline. Rumours are all pointing to the fact that Karl Robinson has Will Grigg in his sights as a squad addition as he attempts to force home a striking addition before the transfer deadline. I’d take him for the song alone.

Grigg is not first choice at Wigan but two questions linger. One is will Wigan let him leave to a potential promotion rival? And if it is permanent, how much will he cost?
