Wigan fans blast idea of team wearing black armbands at FA Cup semi

Wigan fans are fuming with chairman Dave Whelan over his request for the side to wear black armbands for the late Margaret Thatcher at Wembley on Saturday.

Tory-backer Whelan wants his Latics to pay tribute to the former Prime Minister at the FA Cup semi-final against Millwall - but the mere idea of such a gesture has gone down badly with the public.

Whelan has put forward a suggestion of a minute’s silence too, but the Latics supporters are enraged about their team also wearing armbands to honour the hugely divisive politician.

Now Martinez and his players will decide on what to do at the ­semi-final, but they are likely to tell chairman Whelan that it would not be a good idea to pursue such a tribute.
