New Badge Alert: Wigan Athletic

Yes folks, it's silly season once again as the Premier League's graphic designers get to work on some new imagery that will hopefully provide a smokescreen over any recent poor performances.

This week, we can unveil for you the new Wigan Athletic badge... voila!!

It's a redesign of a badge we featured on one of our old Friday Lists of Little or No Consequence back in June 2007 and was worn by Wigan during the 1970's and 80's. See if you can spot the difference...

There isn't that much of a difference at all, is there? There's a colour change here or there and the tree doesn't now look like a stork of broccoli, but essentially it's the same thing.

Of course there are those traditionalists (myself included, if I'm honest) that preferred the recently deposed badge which is more like a local town crest, but I'm all in favour of giving a nod in the direction of heritage and history. At least it's a bit more interesting than a tree on a crown... but then, as I always say, that's just my opinion.

What do you think of the new badge? Is it something you'd be proud to associate yourself with or not? Let us know your opinion - we'll be waiting to hear your thoughts!
