Wigan Athletic is a football team that seems to always have the odds stacked against them. They tend to always be the underdog or undermanned yet they always find a way to compete, get the job done and hang onto their spot in the Premier League.

Last year Wigan managed to finish in 11th place in the EPL which was a surprisingly good finish for the team. However this year they will have to do it without Antonio Valencia who has left the team on transfer. Valencia was one of the bright stars for the team and they will have difficulty replacing his skill and ability. They have brought in Joasn Scotland, James McCarthy, Garcia-Penche and Henry Thomas. However none of them possess the same ability that Valencia did.
Wigan has a good mix on their team of young players and veterans. This has allowed them to remain in contention in the EPL since the beginning of the 2006 season. This year will likely be a bit more of an uphill battle now that they lost their manager Steve Bruce. Bruce was an integral part in the development of the team and there will be many changes without him. They will need to find consistent ways to try and score more goals. They only hit the back of the net 34 times and will now have a harder time without Valencia.
Can Wigan Athletic overcome the loss of one of their top players and their manager in order to improve on last year? Or will they continue to struggle to score and possibly face relegation this year?
