Heskey the Heart Breaker

Heskey the Heart Breaker

What a fantastic result, forget the performance all that matters is the point Chelsea 1-1 Wigan Athletic almost guarantees Premier League football for the Latics for another season.

A man of the match performance from an absolutely superb Chris Kirkland, also cant believe that Avram Grant actually rested players for a game his side HAD to win, his loss.

Emile Heskey broke Chelsea hearts but he also broke beer glasses around the North West as not only Latics fans but also Man U fans threw their arms up in celebration at the big mans late, late equaliser that not only saves Wigans season but also gives United the Championship for a second consecutive year.

Match report will follow (Tuesday)

Good result, all thanks to Kirkland as we (Chelsea) should've been leading at least 5-1 in the 90th minute. But even if we won Wigan would've stayed up and we would've been runners up anyway. Especially judging by Bruce's comments before the game, it was clear that he would've let Man Utd win the last game of the season, if they needed it. I really liked Wigan since promotion, but following those comments I really hope you play Conference football for the rest of the century.

Cheers keka....and Grant showing us no respect by leaving players out? You got what you deserved...a kick up the arsene at the end, Cole should have been on from the start and so should Drogba, if they had we wouldnt be having this conversation, as for Conference football, I watched us there years ago and after tasting the so called cream of Prem football, the lower level game is a lot more honest than watching all these obscenely paid primadonnas every week falling over every time someone breathes on them, conning and intimidating refs, to be quite honest you can stick your Prem...and as for Bruce dont know what he said but he did spend 15 years at Utd he is bound to have some affinity with them, personally cant stand them...they are a whinging nasty club...bring back Stafford Rangers and Netherfield! A couple of pints in the Dog N Duck a programme and bus home all for under £20

It wasn't disrespectful toward Wigan, because he did the same vs Man City, where he left out a few players, too. And Lampard was on the team sheet before, but it seems that due to family problems he had to leave. As far as my comments regarding Conference football for Wigan, sorry, that's due to the immense bitterness and disappointment with yesterday's result, which was plain unlucky having in mind all the chances, especially in the second half.
