  • Thu, 26 Jan 2023 21:12:26 +0000: Kolo Touré fired as Wigan manager after less than two months in charge - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian
    • Former defender failed to win any of his nine games
    • Touré signed three-and-a-half-year deal in November

    Wigan have sacked their manager, Kolo Touré, after less than two months with the club failing to win any of his nine games in charge.

    The former Arsenal and Manchester City defender signed a three-and-a-half-year deal when he took the job on 29 November but picked up only two points from seven league games and also suffered defeat in the FA Cup at the hands of Luton after a replay. Last weekend’s 2-0 home loss to the same opposition in the league left Wigan bottom of the Championship, four points from safety.

    • Watford 13 points off second place; Dwight Gayle breaks duck

    Norwich continued their superb start under David Wagner with a 4-2 victory at Coventry. Having thrashed Preston 4-0 in Wagner’s first league game in charge, the Canaries raced into a 3-0 lead inside 18 minutes through a Michael Rose own goal and strikes by Onel Hernández and Josh Sargent.

    Coventry reduced the deficit to one with quickfire goals from Jamie Allen and Kasey Palmer – the first five goals came inside the opening 26 minutes – before Kieran Dowell added a fourth for Norwich in the 65th minute.

    • Chuba Akpom fires hat-trick in Middlesbrough’s win over Wigan

    Sheffield United continue to push for top spot in the Championship after beating Coventry 3-1. The win takes the Blades level on points with top-of-the-table Burnley after James McAtee fired the hosts into the lead.

    Coventry had the chance to equalise just after the break, but Viktor Gyökeres had his spot-kick saved. Ciaran Clark and Tommy Doyle added two more for United before Gyökeres pulled one back for Coventry, but the Blades were forced to play out the rest of the game with 10 men after John Egan was shown a second yellow card in the 78th minute.

  • Mon, 28 Nov 2022 07:00:19 +0000: All In by Lisa Nandy review – why Labour must give power to the people - Wigan Athletic | The Guardian

    The shadow levelling up secretary argues that communities should have more control in her persuasive manifesto for a better Britain

    Two-thirds of the way through this timely book, Lisa Nandy relays a gem of a quote from Clement Attlee, Labour prime minister in the 1945-51 postwar government. “Socialists,” Attlee wrote, “are not concerned solely with material things. They do not think of human beings as a herd to be fed and watered… They think of them as individuals cooperating together to make a fine collective life.”

    All In: How We Build a Country That Works is an attempt to revive that ethos for 21st-century Britain, making the case for a democratic revolution to address a seemingly endless political crisis. Amid signs that a top-down managerialist approach is back in fashion in Downing Street, after Johnsonian chaos and the wild follies of Trussonomics, it feels like a much-needed intervention.
