A number of Wigan Athletic fans were extremely impressed by Everton loanee Antonee Robinson’s debut for the Latics.
A number of Wigan Athletic fans have taken to Twitter to laud Antonee Robinson following the Everton loanee’s debut for the Latics that saw the Championship newbies beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 at the weekend.
It had appeared at some stages during the summer that Robinson may have a chance of remaining in Marco Silva’s plans for the coming Premier League campaign. Left-back was an area where the Toffees looked weak last term, and the 20-year-old performed well during a loan spell with Bolton Wanderers.
However, the arrival of Lucas Digne left the path clear for the United States international to head back into the Championship, with Paul Cook bringing him to the DW Stadium ahead of Wigan’s return to the second tier.
And Robinson went straight into the side for the opening game of the campaign. It was a superb result for Wigan as they beat Wednesday 3-2, and Robinson certainly left a number of the supporters extremely excited about his potential.
His darting runs down the line caused plenty of problems for the visitors and one in particular played a key role in one of Wigan’s goals in the five-goal thriller.
There is a long way to go this season, of course, but Silva may well have taken note of the fact that a large number of Latics supporters were full of praise for the youngster’s display in the win.
Here is what some of the Wigan fans made of the Everton loanee’s debut…
To quote Roberto “there were many positives to take today”. Gibson’s distribution, Massey fabulous, Robinson, James & Kipre what debuts. Every @LaticsOfficial player after last weeks twitter meltdown lets all realise we have an exciting team to support! #wafc

We’re back and we’re going to stick some goals away this season #wafc I’m not having that’s the same Massey as last season, also Robinson looks a player. Jacobs best game in about a year for us too.
