  • Sat, 20 Jan 2024 19:15:16 +0000: Loyal Reading fans take a stand as fears grow for crisis club’s future - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian

    Travelling supporters vent their anger and frustration against owner Dai Yongge during League One defeat at Wigan

    “I’m Reading ‘til I die,” came the chant at kick-off from the away end, although many fear that the club will be the first to require a lengthy eulogy if Dai Yongge continues his ­lamentable ownership. The Royals are in crisis and 90 minutes of football at least brings some normality to the supporters from Berkshire who made the trek up to Wigan, even if the match ended in a 1-0 defeat.

    Wigan fans know the pain of poor ownership, starting the season with an eight-point deduction after previous owners Phoenix Ltd failed to pay wages on time on five separate occasions in a season that concluded with relegation from the Championship alongside Reading. The Latics were served with a winding up petition in June relating to an unpaid tax bill and placed under a transfer embargo but a takeover from local billionaire Mike Danson has put Wigan back on firm ground after paying off outstanding debts.

    Arsenal must arrest sliding form, crisis-hit Reading head to Wigan and depleted champions face WSL test

    South Korea continue their push for a first Asian Cup win since 1960 and Lee Kang-in looks as if he can be their linchpin for years to come. In the 22-year-old, the Taegeuk Warriors have an in-form, forward-thinking attacker who impressed in his side’s opening game against Bahrain, scoring twice and constantly threatening with tight dribbling and defence-splitting passing. The former South Korea coach Paulo Bento often saw Lee as nothing more than an impact substitute but the current manager, Jürgen Klinsmann, sees potential in the Paris Saint-Germain player: “He’s like a flower that is starting to bloom … [his] growth over the last six months is a joy for us.” Next South Korea take on Jordan, who top Group E after a 4-0 rout of Malaysia in their first game. A win for either side would put them on the verge of finishing top, possibly avoiding a clash against the tournament favourites, Japan, in the last 16. “Everyone in the dressing room and everyone back home, the whole nation, are waiting for this trophy,” said Lee. “We haven’t won it for 64 years so we’re all motivated and hungry for this tournament.” Yara El-Shaboury

  • Mon, 08 Jan 2024 23:27:22 +0000: Fearless Mainoo embraces pressure of playing for Manchester United - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian

    Teenage midfielder’s seamless transition despite team’s troubles offers hope with cool head in FA Cup win at Wigan

    Erik ten Hag warned that playing for Manchester United is not for everyone – it is a poisoned chalice because of the added pressure. Hundreds of millions of pounds worth of talent have failed to cope over the past decade but their very own Kobbie Mainoo is embracing it.

    It was Ten Hag’s first visit to a Football League club since arriving at United. There are more unwelcoming stadiums than the DW Stadium, although few could claim to be as cold. Often the issue that creates United’s inconsistency revolves around the mentality of the team, as they struggle to put a run of victories together. A trip to a mid-table third-tier team desperate to rattle a very fragile team was not the most enticing encounter for a side in constant transition. It was a night for cool heads, something the temperature aided.

  • Mon, 08 Jan 2024 22:14:29 +0000: Manchester United progress after comfortable FA Cup win at Wigan - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian

    Shaun Maloney had wanted to know whether the team he supported as a boy could outfight and outplay the side he coaches in adulthood. The answer was a resounding yes, unfortunately for the Wigan Athletic manager, as Manchester United avoided a third round upset and further torment for Erik ten Hag with a professional job at the DW Stadium.

    A fine finish from Diogo Dalot and the softest of penalties for Bruno Fernandes secured United a fourth round trip to either League Two Newport County or Eastleigh of the National League. The visitors dominated Wigan, who were hoping for another FA Cup scalp in front of their biggest home attendance for a decade but only seriously threatened one from their first attack. The gulf between the Premier League and League One told, though Wigan were spared greater punishment by United’s profligacy in front of goal.
