Wigan Athletic Vs Arsenal
Mark 'Lawro` Lawrenson, the ex-Liverpool player and current BBC pundit has done his usual round of predicting the scores for this weekends Premier League games and this week unsurprisingly hes backing the Latics to lose. Let`s see what he has to say and why he thinks Arsenal will come out on top:
Strangely for a Steve Bruce team, Wigan just capitulated against Everton last week, and you wonder if losing Wilson Palacios and Emile Heskey in January is catching up with them.
Add to that the question of whether Antonio Valencia really sees his long-term future at the club and Amr Zaki's recent behaviour - which is just disgraceful to his fellow pro's - it's not all rosy at the Latics right now.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have got competition for places again with a few coming back from injury and they are hitting form at the right time in their push for a top-four finish, so I fancy them to pinch this one.
Well Lawro once again I am disagreeing with you and I really do think we will win this one and get rid of that tag of never having beaten one of the 'big four`, I am going for a 1-0 home win
Latics Speyk Podcast 8 - The Arsenal Preview
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)
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.
