Reckon?......theyve never stuffed us before and I doubt they will this time, we've got a good chance on Sunday 1-0 to the Latics

difficult one to call; if arsenal hadn't of played that game midweek i would fancy your chances. but that win in milan is sure to have given them a huge boost. perhaps not a stuffing but a comfortable 2-0 is on the cards i think. although the absence of walcott will be a boost for you.

I think we will win but we have to watch out for Scharner at set peices as he is good against Arsenal.

Believe me, I hope you're right :P But I doubt very much that you can hope for more than a draw at best.
