    Congrats to Wigan on making the premiership. :thumbsup: They may not survive, but at least they did it after their near miss last year.

    Any tips for the play-offs?

    Pretty sure the Chairman said on 5Live this morning that he would invest another £25mil in the club , on top of the £75mil he has put in already

    If 25million was given for players they could do ok. They have a decent base at the moment and the way the transfer market is at the moment- no money about- they will get some decent signings I would imagine.

    Will be looking foward to see how Nathan Ellington fares in the Premiership.

    A future Engalnd prospect I think.

    This is an amazin feat by Wigan and what I've seen of them this season they look quite tasty for a Championship side - good luck to them. I remember going to Wigan in the 70s with Mansfield Town for an FA Cup match, Wigan were a non-league side then.
