Latics Issue Official Statement On Zaki


Wigan Athletic have issued an official statement regarding the 'Amr Zaki Affair` and published it on the clubs official website.

Brenda Spencer the Chief Executive of the Latics says:

"Zaki apologised to both Steve Bruce and herself for his behaviour and made a further apology to all of his team mates and the coaching staff."

Mrs Spencer then went on to be quoted: 'He (Zaki) also wants to apologise to the supporters who have been so good to him since his arrival in England. He said the reason for his behaviour was personal but he understands he has done wrong and will accept the fine the club has imposed in accordance with PFA guidelines.'

'This whole affair has been very disappointing and the club are keen to draw a line under it.

'Steve has told him that the door is not closed for him but he has a lot to do to earn a place back in the team. That is before we discuss anything more long term.

'There are seven games left this season and our focus has to be on finishing in as high a league position as possible.

'We cannot allow anything else to distract from that.'


Well lets hope that this is the end of the matter and that the biggest talking point at the club is the performance of the team on the pitch and hopefully three points today against Arsenal


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.

I hope you enjoy and if you wish to feature on any future podcasts please get in touch here on Vital Wigan, till the next time, keep on truckin`
