I imagine the club to be basically the plot of The Producers, all Whelan needs to do is see his team relegated and he can finally leave and stop having to pretend that he (or indeed, anyone) actually likes football in Wigan. Every March, he thinks this is the year he's done it and can smell freedom, then somehow they stay up, dooming him to repeat the cycle endlessly in a Sisyphean nightmare.
It'd be insane for that rugby town to spend a decade in the top flight, though.
