When Neil Diamond wrote those words for the Monkees, I doubt he had any idea that they would become an anthem for any football club, let alone one in a small town in the North West of England. By the same token, when I wrote, back in November, that Roberto Martinez was no longer the man to lead Wigan Athletic, little did I know I'd be writing again having beaten Liverpool, Arsenal, Man Utd and Newcastle, and having been robbed against Chelsea.

In my defence, a lot has changed since the 9th of November. Several players have been banished to the wilderness, others have found the form they showed 2 years ago, and the manager has changed to a formation that suits the players he has, rather than trying to make the players suit the formation he wanted. In short, just about everything has changed, bar the man in the manager's job.
