    They don't have the fanbase of a historically successful club because they aren't one.

    for them to fill the ground a 3rd of the town of wigan have to go

    considering they are in the middle of 4 big clubs in city united everton and liverpool
    considering that wigan is traditionally a rugby town
    and considering they were getting crowds of 2000-3000 15 years ago they have done remarkable to get the crowds they get now and to sustain premier league footy for 7 years
    so fair play to them

    Yep. Massively arrogant to label their support shit. They should be applauded for how many they're taking rather than taking the piss.

    I would say the same in support of my own argument. They don't have the history of a big fanbase for the above reasons, and therefore don't have the support of comparably sized footballing towns like Burnley. In fact, this was pretty much shown up by the fact the numbers Burnley have brought to the Etihad (even bringing about 1,000 for the FA Youth Cup in January) and traditionally to Maine Road, versus the amount Wigan bring every year where they only ever sell out one block.

    Exactly. In case you didn't realise Wigan is more of a rugby town so they arn't expected to get great crowds. Wigans a decent club with some quality players, a great manager run by a local passionate chairman. I have nothing but respect for the club and I hope they survive. Besides i wouldnt go on about shit support after yesterdays game. Made the old Highbury feel like a rock concert.

    Burnley aren't a rugby town and don't have City and the Rags on their doorstep. The nearest clubs to Burnley are Blackburn who they hate with a passion and Rochdale.
    Wigans support is great taking all things into consideration.

    I agree. I also like going to Wigan as both a football and rugby league away visitor. Leave them alone - they do quite well really.
