Another new adventure awaits us Latics fans, relegation confirmed so it will be League 1 next season, so what? Whichever division this club plays in I will be there supporting, I didn’t feel we would be going down last August, but I wasn’t arrogant enough to rule it out completely.
We have competed in a very tough league and unfortunately we haven’t met the mark, so in the now famous words of club skipper Stephen Warnock we dust ourselves down and go again.
The squad of players that we have is without question good enough to be very competitive next season, there is much to look forward to and we should have a chance to see the Latics score some goals, win some games and get the crowd lifted again on home soil.
The big down side of relegation though is the potential loss of jobs for ancillary staff at the club, this is one negative aspect that many fans don’t consider, I just hope that anyone who finds themselves under threat has a successful as possible outcome.
We will soon see the unveiling of the new boss, many names linked at the moment, hopefully this time round it will be someone for the long term and bring some much needed stability, the constant chopping and changing has been very much counter-productive.
Despite relegation and having no manager I do feel surprisingly optimistic, I am looking forward to August when we get going again and the possibility of some winning football. Whatever happens I’ll be there.
Up the tics!

Relegation confirmed at the weekend, but in reality we all knew it had been coming for quite a while now.
20 attempts at goal away at Reading, yet we still managed a nil return, that is now 22 games where we have drawn a blank this season.
We run through the managerial candidates and despite a large number of names in the running three of the panel go for the same guy, the name might surprise you.
Leeds up on Sunday at 12 noon, then the curtain will fall on a very disappointing season.
Don’t forget the latest All Gone Latics Fanzine will be on sale before the Leeds game and also at the Latics Legends game on the 19 May
