The official Wigan are shit thread in Terrace Talk Posted February 19, 2021 11 hours ago, Ani said: In should be a criminal offence to criticise Sams time here but his actions since make it easier. It is OK Sam claiming he had all these great players lined up. Some of which will be true. But when given a bit of money at Newcastle he went out and spent £6m on Alan Smith. At every club he has been at his story afterwards is how if he had been backed he would have signed certain players (Luca Modric is the Newcastle Drogba). What happened at Bolton when he was here in terms of players, results and the whole journey was brilliant. He was innovative and exciting. But he has never replicated that success. I said when left it was a bad day for us and would be for him in the long term. If you could be arsed to go back plenty of idiots on here were glad to see him go. I dont think Allardyce, or his bank balance, have ever looked back.
