    If we are going to mess it up, who would you rather lose to? Fair play to Salford and mega lolz at not giving the pie eaters the day out.

    Roll on Saturday. Play like we did last week and we will earn the current definition of champions.

    Even though we already clearly are.

    Think the thread should be titled - Wigan No Idea.

    So many salty Wigan fans blaming the ref, completely outplayed.

    What a sh*te season for them.
    Started awful, went on a good run, they all said they’d win the GF, pumped by Saints (again) then pumped by Salford.

    Wigan rely heavily on their wingers to win games. Their climb to second place was largely by beating the bottom clubs and those sliding down the league.

    Started shite, carried on shite, found a bit of form and ended up 2nd because the wolfs decided to not turn up for the 2nd half of the season, save Wembley, then finished by getting dicked by us and Salford. Enough said.

    The way the goons have played in the last two games they may as well take up the discus.
    On the Back foot looking for the front one.

    There's a few players there past there sell by date.

    They have held onto players because they've been good players, Leeds made the same mistake and we've done it in the past, let players get old at the club.

    Found their level in the last two games. Poor squad in need of massive reconstruction.

    Just re-watching it now. It's lucky they didn't play like that last week.

    SOL REALLY needs to hang up his boots. Always hated the fact that he gets away with consistently dirty tactics, but he backed it up as an undeniably quality player. Now he just looks like nothing but a grubby cheat.

    Can't pass anymore to slow to get his cheap shots in. I think they should keep him out there.

    They were so poor tbh. Don't know why, don't really care.

    It does look that way, its possible Hastings might have to play most of his games behind a slow beaten pack next season.

    He’s abysmal. Looked like an old man in all our games this year. In all honesty he’d be more effectively used in a coaching role now

    Multiple rumours doing the rounds already from what I can see. Seems he's made it clear that he'd rather be at Salford really, mutterings sbout funding from a bizarre source to keep him there, Moley tweeting that Brisbane want him next year. Might keep the off season more intersting than the obligatory kit thread....

    Thats the problem signing a deal halfway through a season to move next season, you cannot be sure what they will be like, when he signed for next season Salford were not doing that well and Wigan looked to be improving, something that proved to be the opposite of what actually happened. Sometimes it is best to wait and consider your options, something i have no doubt Hastings is regretting, as Wigans pack is polarised in terms of age, they have some young players who may have potential but little experience and the old guard of SOL, Clubb, Flower and Farrell who are past it, there are no forwards in the prime of their career there. I bet Hastings is hoping an NRL team comes knocking so he can avoid playing in a goons team with a below average forward pack next year.

    That would be hilarious after all the grief they gave us over Barba.

    He has got an NRL get out clause I believe.
