Valencia Sending off Cost Latics at Anfield

Valencia Sending off Cost Latics at Anfield


The last poll on Vital Latics asked if you thought that the sending off at Anfield last weekend of Latics midfield man Antonio Valencia had any bearing on the result and an astounding 93% of you said it did.

In the game the Latics were comfortable at 2-1 in front with just 15 minutes left, referee Alan Wiley decided to give Valencia two yellow cards in quick succession, the second one merited but the first was a ridiculous decision, this left the Latics down to 10 men and facing an onslaught from Rafa Benitez` side.

Along with myself the majority of voters reckoned this cost the Latics a famous victory, que sara sara.

This weekend we face Villa at the JJB and have inexperienced referee Mike Jones in charge, Mr Jones` only previous Premier League game this season was the Latics 5-0 victory away at Hull, he booked just one player in that game, a Hull player, more of the same please Mr Jones.

Talking of the Villa game the latest poll is asking for you to forecast the result and is available for you participation on the right side of this page.

Absolutely! The Liverpool result was a joke, end of. Lawro peeved me off by saying if we keep focusing on that result, there may be trouble ahead but at the end of the day, I think we'll be OK (hopefully). Anyways, bottom line is Liverpool result was just a farce.

Bruce has done a hell of a job there and I honestly think you will be top 10 after watching your lot last week. We got lucky no doubt but last season you guys had the luck. Good luck for the rest of the season and I hope Zaki has the good grace to stay with the club that gave him his chance...

Brentford v Latics - Big Game Preview

A difficult game for the Latics this afternoon as they travel down to Brentford, the Bees have been scoring for fun so far at this campaign on their home turf, but we need to build upon a good win against Wolves on Tuesday and turn around our away form.

The Latics pulled out of the bottom three courtesy of Will Grigg's late, late winner, Grigg was of course signed for the Latics from Brentford, where some say he wasn't given much of a chance under Mark Warburton, so he will be eager to go
