Merson Drools over the Latics


Sky Soccer Saturday pundit and ex Arsenal and Aston Villa man Paul Merson was left drooling today at the attacking performance from the Latics as he reported on the Wigan Athletic Vs Blackburn Rovers game at the JJB

Merson told anchor man Jeff Stelling that the Latics were never in danger of getting the three points with star performances from Valencia, Zaki and Heskey, he said:

'They (Blackburn) got ripped apart in the first 10 minutes'

'The first goal was a great bit of play by Valencia, he slaughtered Warnock and it was a good finish by Heskey.

'But for the second goal the ball came out to Valencia half-way inside Blackburn's half and he just kept on going with the ball.

'Someone made a dummy run and the defender went with the runner instead of worrying about the ball. It was embarrassing, shocking defending.

'You feel for Incey. He does all this work on the training pitch and with 12 minutes gone they are 2-0 down. You just can't give anybody a two-goal head-start in this league.'

"Wigan were very good'

'They stopped Blackburn from playing, they overpowered them and Zaki was a right handful - he was back to what he was like at the start of the season.

'Don't take that away from them, they got beat by a very good Wigan team today."
