Twitter Lemons - Wigan Athletic

We’ve been waiting for this day - #wafc, it’s your turn

Wigan Athletic
Another packed crowd at the DW

Wigan Athletic were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Ben Amos and Cardiff City yesterday, leaving them six points from safety with two games left to play. If 'Arry Redknapp's Birmingham can get at least a point today against Aston Villa, they'll be relegated.

I don't know whether you remember, but Wigan Athletic fans quite enjoyed our relegation from the Championship last year, especially as they were promoted from League One. Now, we Bolton fans a classier, more intellectual and fairer bunch; I'm not going to laugh at The Latics and retweet my favourite Wigan fans on Twitter (yet), but I'd love to share my favourite Pie Eaters on the Twittersphere. This week, rather than our usual three, we've found five friends from over the border.

5) LE96: "We're actually going to be playing Bolton next season, aren't we? #wafc #bwfc

Not too sure about that at the minute, my friend. You don't have any special offers on, do you?

4) LE96: "If Wigan stay up and Bolton stay down, I'll give one person who retweets this a £10 gift code for PSN, XBox or Amazon. Must be following!"

Quick! Follow and retweet. LE96 IS GIVING AWAY TEN QUID IF WIGAN WIN THEIR FINAL TWO GAMES, BIRMINGHAM LOSE THEIR FINAL THREE GAMES, BOLTON LOSE ON SUNDAY AND FLEETWOOD WIN!

Or, you could go and put a bet on all of these permutations at about 90/1. Plus, you wouldn't have to put up with following LE96. Just a thought.

3) TicsOnFire: #wafc 10 men #bwfc #wankywanky

I know how you feel, TicsOnFire. I pissed myself too when Rigino Cicilia managed to get himself two yellow cards after just 33 minutes.

Oh, you tweeted during the Oldham game, didn't you? I can see why you're laughing, with your 23 defeats from 44 games this season. When you compare it to our 24 wins from 45 boasting the meanest defence in League One, it really does give you cause to laugh.

If I may, can I recommend the multi-storey car park in Kingsford-upon-Thames for Wimbledon away? It's a bit pricey, but you really get the security a PCP can't guarantee. It's covered by CCTV and there's four floors, so there'll be enough room for all 200 of you on your trip to AFC Wimbledon.

2: Nathan: "We'll never play you again #bwfcrelegationparty"

You know what, Nathan? You might be right. All you have to do is pray for a result from 'Arry's Blue Noses today, and that we get at least a point next weekend at home to Peterborough, and you might just get your wish. Cross your fingers that Fleetwood don't win by 8 goals, because that could leave you disappointed.

1) Dave: "The #bwfc relegation party is underway! Remember last season?? Haha karma bites! #wafc

The irony is almost too delicious. I feel like Bruce Bogtrotter trying to eat the entire chocolate cake in Matilda as I point at this tweet and laugh my cock off. There's just too much to talk about. It's truly word perfect, such poetry is so improbable from a town like Wigan with its crippling poverty and poor standards of education (citation: George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier).

If, and it's a moderately sized if, Wigan and Bolton swap divisions once more, I fully expect this tweet to have hundreds of retweets from smug Bolton fans, and they'd be absolutely right to do so.

Well done, Dave. You're this week's King Lemon.
