You thought the performance against the wolves was bad?
The first 40 min was.
Yeah granted the first 40 wasn’t great in the wolves game.
These games we played poor last season we were losing, we’re are winning them more now which is a plus

Wolves was at home, I was referring to Leeds - our away game before this one. Both seem to have been played with the same attitude in defence.

I like Matty Peet, and think he has done incredibly well so far. (*Meant literally.)

Our showing against Leeds, for part of the Hull KR match, and away at Wakey does concern me, and raises questions though:

• Is there a developing sense of complacency?
• Could the "cuddly" approach to players be partly responsible?

I have absolute confidence in MP, and am sure that he's aware of the problem and that he'll work out what he needs to do to resolve it. (Even if it's Fergie's "hair dryer" approach!)

Hope it's soon.

You don’t need to worry MPE a number of players have already been called to his office for a dressing down.

We lost on Sunday badly, so the players have the day off on Monday or little training. There is no training as such the day before a game. They finish around 2.30ish daily. Unless some want to do extras.

I remember when Madge came he had them training harder & longer & also had an alcohol ban leading into the playoffs. We won our first GF since 1998!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

Many do extras. For example, Smith was practicing his kicking with Briers well into the evening the day before the Wire game.

Madge had more money to spend in real terms and had better players.
Remember kids unless everything you say about Wigan is negative you're not a true "Fan"

We had the same team moreorless for a few years & had the same team as 2009 where we didn’t win anything. He took training to a different level of commitment. That is what I am saying. Shaun Wane kept it up.
