Roylew, I can't understand why you seem to be a voice in the wilderness. You're right about the 'coaching' the team is given. Nothing will ever change until the coach is sent packing. Time and again he's said that the players are his 'mates'. That's no basis for player management, for it lays him open to charges of favouritism and cronyism. He needs to be detached from the team, not wanting to be a part of it, as though he's missing the camaraderie of old. But even that isn't the biggest obstacle to success at a once-great club. No, it's the philosophy of bish-bash wallop, five drives and a kick, turn it inside, muscling up, buying into our way of playing - whichever cliche you want. There are no moves! Some players haven't performed this season and are paid a shed load of money for it: Tomkins was a world-beater a few seasons ago, now where has that creative flair gone? More importantly, why has it gone? Has he 'bought into' the coach's 'run at a brick wall not round it' philosophy?

I'm afraid things won't change unless things change. I think Confucius said that - or he should have done!

Must admit, it seems as though SW has come to the end of the line. In his time he has done well, but a change of management to introduce better tactics and to buy a recognised goal kicker is a tad overdue.......just an opinion.

it's been a bad year , no mistake but injuries did have a big part to play in that. let's not forget Wane did get the team to Superleague and World Club champions befor the injuries piled in. I will look forward to next year with optimism and hopefully a fit load of players.

And the style of play kath ?

i know nothing about that roylew to be honest! and I admit it so I give no opinion. It just seems to me that when Wigan win the players get all the praise and when they lose it's all Wane's fault.

I haven't missed many home games this season kath....I really admire loyalty for the man..but I have loyalty for the club...that's why I'm upset

Powell 'rests' six players for the Hull game - why not?
they have earned the right

'With a home Semi-Final already confirmed for next week, Powell rings the changes. Zak Hardaker, Oliver Holmes, Nathan Massey, Grant Millington, Adam Milner and captain Michael Shenton will all sit this one out''
