What the bosses said - Latics Vs Newcastle

What the bosses said - Latics Vs Newcastle


Following yesterdays game at the JJB between Wigan Athletic and Newcastle United both managers Steve Bruce and a very bitter Joe Kinnear spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'We've created chaos in the last five minutes. We comprehensively won the game but in the last five minutes we've caused carnage to ourselves.

'It took the gloss of what was otherwise a really good performance where we were the worthy victors.

'We were comfortable, they go down to 10 men and we were seeing out the game and then all of a sudden it becomes difficult.'

'I thought their second shout for a penalty at the end was more of a penalty than the first one.'


Newcastle boss Joe Kinnear:

'I can't find words to express his (Dean's) performance. If he gives a penalty for Heskey why couldn't he for Andy Carroll?

'Heskey has done well, thrown himself and lost his balance. But he's 6ft 3in. The referees fall for it. At the other end Andy Carroll's got hacked down from behind. See it on TV, see it on the tape, it's a clear penalty. Even Stevie Bruce said the same but we didn't get it. That sums up his performance.

'In the last 15 minutes I always thought we'd get something out of the game. Then the penalty pops us, but you have to rely on officials to do their job, what they are supposed to do.

'They want respect in the game but what would you say after today. I'm too sick to say anything else.'

Joe Kinnear is an absolute joke and he is detracting from what was a good Latics performance
