They have played at the DW Stadium since 1999, sharing the stadium with rugby league club Wigan Warriors. They previously played at Springfield Park for 67 years.

Managerial Goals:

Win the nPower Championship

Win the Premiere League

Win the Champions League

Win the EURO Cup

All of this will be done using my own tactics. With that said I am awful at making tactics so that will be my own little twist to this.

So without further a due

Let's Start the Story

On second though I will not be using my own tactics since it just makes the game not fun and unplayable.

Lost quite a bit of money lol. Come January depending on who I'm not using I will sell them off.

This wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but I missed out on two home games that we could have easily won.

Man Utd. (3) - (1) Wigan
Ben Watson

Obviously we all saw this coming, but hey atleast we got a goal.

Bournemouth (2) - (3) Wigan
Shaun Maloney

First game, first win

Wigan (0) - (2) Barnsley

Not sure if it was my tactic, but we dominated most of the just couldn't finish our chances.

Wigan (1) - (1) Yeovil
Shaun Maloney

Pretty even game. Unfortunately they got the late goal to tie it up.
