WIGAN STARTING IN LEAGUE 1
1 JUNE 2018
We spent freely at the halfway mark of the season and by including a loanee we had six new players who were supposed to hold regular first team spots. Here are the six....
Luke failed, at least for this season, to move Andy Kellett off the first choice spot and only appeared in 3 of our final 10 matches. The rest of our choices became first choice quite swiftly.
So, did it help?
Pedro Garcia. on loan from Barcelona, lead our team with 15 goals. Antonio Fernandez, above, came on loan from Sevilla and finished 2nd with 12 goals in 18 games while Garcia played 45.
Pavicic earned our fans player of the year award for his half season. That 3.3M investment is one of the best that I have seen.
I just finished a terrible walk through the squad. 20 players were told that we would not be entering contract talks with them for next year. 6 players were transfer listed.
We had 44M in profit after the directors pocketed 14M. We have been given a 100K per week increase to our wage budget for next season along with 38M available for transfer.
Hmmmm, Lukaku only got 7 starts for Tottenham this season playing behind Kane. Do you think he remembers me from my Spanish save? Anyway, I would be happy to get another year of loaning the two Spanish strikers, but I cannot imagine that will be allowed. I probably need to plan to replace those two, find a starter at AMC and find more youth to replace the parts that I allowed to drift away....
