What the Bosses Said - Latics VS Everton

What the Bosses Said - Latics VS Everton


Following last nights game between Wigan Athletic and Everton opposing managers Steve Bruce and David Moyes spoke to the press, Bruce obviously relieved to get a home win while Moyes was philosophical about the defeat, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce

'We're delighted we've got the points for obvious reasons.

'It's arguably been one of our poorest performances if I'm being brutally honest, but it's all about the result.

'There was an edginess and a nervousness about us in the first-half and it was good to get over that.

'The one bit of quality was in the goal. It was a great ball by Brown and a marvellous bit of skill by Antonio to set up Henri, so I was very pleased with that.'

'I always knew he made himself a bit of a cult-hero here a few years ago.

'He was very unlucky that I left him out after his performance last weekend because he played excellently well up at Newcastle.

'All credit to him though, he's been patient, stuck at it and got his reward tonight.'

Lee Cattermole came in for special praise from Bruce and a bit of tongue in cheek humour following his fracas in the North East last weekend, he said on Cattermole:

'He's been a terrific signing. I forget at times he's only 20 years old.

'He's arguably been our best performer this season, he wont be going out to night, that`s for sure.'


Everton boss David Moyes

'We've played better than that'

'It was quite tight but I knew it would be a tough game.

'Wigan is not an easy place to come and they're a strong side, so you have to give them some credit.

'Hopefully we can pick up. We've played well recently prior to coming here and had been on a decent run, so hopefully we can pick up again.'

Latics v Wolves - Big Game Preview

There is a little bit of pressure starting to mount down at the Latics, no win in seven games and sitting bottom of the pile, the sooner we can get a three points haul in the bag the better.

Gary Caldwell felt that his team were unlucky not to win the game at Preston on Friday never mind lose it, a wickedly deflected effort early on followed by some resolute defending kept the Latics at bay, but a failure to take two excellent chances was the downfall as we lost by the odd goal for the 7t
