    So… not much internet presence for Wigan fans then?

    The results are okay so I guess we won’t be seeing many Wigan fans today.

    @Dogface

    They only got electricity up there last year. The internet might be ready by 2020.

    They can barely fill their stadium, let alone the internet.

    But seriously folks, Roberto Martinez has done a good job with Wigan given the limited resources he has.

    And for the moaners who say: “we are after their team and give them bad marks because we lost against them” : we lost at home to Wigan.

    Latics fan – it is very simple, and the details are on several articles on this site and in the notes posted around this series.

    You will not be published if

    a) you are abusive
    b) you simply state an opinion without backing it up (for example people who say “your figures are wrong”
    c) you go off topic
    d) you accuse the site of doing something which is explained.

    This last point doesn’t mean that you have to read the whole site before you post, but you really should not expect to be able to wander off in your own way, without first noting in some detail what the site is about.

    And concerning the lack of comments from supporters of your team, you should see the responses that have come from elsewhere. Goodness, we have Tottenham fans on here telling us that some of our analyses are very fair and reasonable.

    BTW – ‘latics fan’ was the ONLY poster here to represent his team… and the post published was pretty much representative of the two that weren’t.

    Latics fan,
    you started by saying something about a semi final some dozen years ago (could be more could be less) and then said we were still sour for that.
    This is exactly what we have been talking about in this topic http://blog.emiratesstadium.info/archives/23282 and we want to avoid such things.
    I know the other comments were not on topic but I think most of our regular readers don’t say: ‘I agree’ which in itself would be silly.
    The other people are regular readers who have passed the “talk on the subject-test’ before and once you passed your fit and proper person test you can go a bit off topic. But I think we ask that you first prove that you can talk a bit on topic.
    We have had more than enough people talking off topic so when you post your first post and immediately go off topic the chance of you not passing the test is big.

    But if you do have anything to say about the refs in the Wigan games: be our guest.

    Latics fan – I was just wondering… do you have anything of value to say or are you just on the troll?

    Thanks

    @ Latics Fan, I don’t really understand what your gripe is. An Arsenal blog have gone out of their way to review the refs in YOUR games and established that the refs hindered you a bit and you have a problem with the bloggers for that?!?!?!

    Please do explain why you would be having a swipe at us rather than the refs as it makes no sense to me!

    Unless you are in fact Mike Riley in which case I fully understand 🙂

    Very interesting read. Nice to see our long standing suspicions of Phil Dowd *spit* confirmed by cold hard stats. Hope you find more volunteer refs to expand your reviews. Keep up the good work.

    Hi guys,

    Just to let you know, a bit more exposure amd support gained, thanks to Andy @ This Northern Soul (Wigan blog) for adding an article to their website (below):-

    Hi everyone, I would just like to say I like the article, refereeing is an issue that needs sorting in the premiership. There have been quite a lot of decisions against us that have cost us dear in the past (the two goals against Chelsea and the corner that was never took spring to mind). The goal that wasn’t given against United could have been a big decision.

    Stoppage time should be taken into account, however. Fergie-time plays a big part in United’s victories! Not necessarily against us, but all teams! Often unfair decisions such as that effect games.

    There does seem to be negative bias against the smaller teams, but human error cannot be taken as bias all the time, nobody is perfect, bad decisions are inevitable.

    Hi Polite Latics Fan,

    Fully agree with you about Fergie Time, funny how the only people who don’t seem to agree are Man Utd fans though isn’t it.

    With regard to the Human Error factor, I always consider this to be un intended bias myself as the end result is usually always a decision in someones favour incorrectly. Terms like Incompetence, Mistakes, Couldn’t See would all come into this bracket.
