Wigan Athletics draw with Manchester City had some great performances from the Latics players with all eleven starters making positive contributions to the game.
At the back Boycie and Titus were immense with Bramble shackling Adebayor all afternoon in what was a superb performance from the big guy, Thomas played manfully just in front of the back four but it was quite obvious he was suffering from fatigue following his exploits in Honduras and only returning to the UK on Saturday morning.
Diame was simply superb and at 22 he is proving to be an excellent find and just keeps getting better every week, he was unlucky with a shot late in the game which just whistled over the bar with Given beaten. Scotland up front battled well and held the ball up and brought others into the game, he gave Lescott the run-around for a while and I thought he had his best game for us since signing in the summer.
Scharner did well and won lots of headers plus he stopped City from breaking through the middle and he linked well with Rodallega who also had a fantastic game and he is a proving real handful for opposition defences, his shot set up the goal for N`Zogbia who followed up after Given parried the ball and put the Latics in front right on half-time.
Zog had a superb game and he was my man of the match, he had pace, vision, tracked back, scored and had numerous efforts that also nearly produced goals, for me little Charlie just shaded Momo Diame for the Man of the Match, but what do you think?
