Merson Agrees with Vital Wigan

Merson Agrees with Vital Wigan


Here at Vital Wigan we are so incensed with Andy Marriners sending off of Wigan Athletic player Emerson Boyce that we have written to the referees association to complain and we have also likened Marriner to cartoon figure Donald Duck, mind you I think Mr Duck might complain about that.

Any way just to prove that we are not biased in our condemnation of Marriner Sky Soccer Saturday pundit Paul Merson has joined in the debate and totally agrees with what we have been saying here at Vital

Now Merson isn`t known for being a fan of the Latics in fact quite the opposite, so to have him come out and blast the referee for this mistake shows how bad it was, Merson said:

'It was a terrible decision, an absolute shocker'

'Luckily enough they haven't lost the game. I know they go on about needing to show the refs respect - and we have - but at the same time their decisions can cost people their livelihood and their jobs.

'Wigan could have been second bottom today if they'd lost and it was a terrible, terrible decision. I've seen it three or four times.

'Boyce lost the ball and Ameobi got it off him, he lined him up, went to take him down the line and Boyce kicked it. It was not just getting a toe to it, he got his whole foot to it and smashed it out of play.

'The ref came over and could not wait to get his yellow card out. He was so lively and you could tell by the players' reactions what they thought. Boyce had already been booked so he knew if he'd done something wrong he'd go off.

'He wasn't going, he was frustrated and it was a shame really. I know it's not up to Ameobi, but he could easily say he got the ball. Certain players can do that and it would have been a nice touch.

'It was a shocking decision but luckily enough they got a draw out of it.'
