Latics Linked to Lille Star
Wigan Athletic are being linked to making a move this summer for Lille star Rio Mavuba who is regarded as the next Michael Essien.
Sky Sports are reporting that the former Bordeaux player, once a target of Manchester United, is being lined up by Latics boss Steve Bruce as a replacement for January departure Wilson Palacios.
They quote Mavuba says :'I like the Premier League a lot, there is no better league and I like the physical contact'
'People said I am built for the Premier League, let's wait until the end of the season.
'Lille is doing well at the moment so we might qualify for the Champions League so that will be a big thing, but let's wait at the end of the season.'
The Latics seem to have a wealth of midfielders at the club and recently signed Ben Watson so where Mavuba would fit in is unclear, it is in the forward department that Bruce needs to identify possible targets with the likelihood of both Zaki and Mido not being around next year strikers will b at a premium at the club
Latics Speyk Podcast 8
Vital Latics are pleased to announce that the latest podcast 'The Arsenal Preview` is now available for downloading and as usual features conversation and music.
This episode looks forward to the Arsenal game this weekend and features an interview with life long Gooner Tim Stillman of Vital Arsenal fame, now Tim will be travelling up to the JJB this weekend for the big game and he sounds a little nervous as to what the result might be.
Also on this episode the Latics Speyk studio hit the road and met with far away Latics fan Kent who hails from Norway, we met up with Kent in a town centre bar and fired 10 quick questions at him then just had a general chat about the Latics, Norway, Paul Scharner and Denmark
Now to say that the Norwegians and Danes don`t get along is an understatement and Kent`s description of Denmark is very funny and not to be missed (about 18 mins in)
Kent aka Norwegian Latic
The music featured on this episode has a distinctive soul flavour, now Tim told me that he is a big soul man and he has in his CD collection down in South East London quite a few soul albums and he says he is a big Northern Soul fan, so Al Wilson, Tony Clarke, Marvin Gaye all feature and we end with a wonderful track by The Tams called 'There Aint Nothing Like Shagging`, no there aint.
