'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wigan Athletic - Burnley Reaction


Following yesterdays superb performance and win by the Latics at Turf Moor I worry about the impact that it will have on Burnley, prior to yesterday they must have felt invincible at home but now that bubble has been well and truly burst they could implode and really struggle for the rest of the season.

Next up for the Clarets is a visit from Hull who last season also flattered to deceive but poor form from mid-season onwards, they got found out in all honesty, almost saw them fall through the trap door on the last day of the season. I see a similar fate for our East Lancashire friends though with a squad that seems reliant on aging players of Championship quality I feel they will suffer the fate of relegation long before May.

Martinez got his side playing controlled football and showed how to take the sting out of a side that just go out to intimidate the opposition in what they believe is a cauldron, the Latics were simply awesome, quietened the home supporters and showed Burnley what the Premier League is all about.

The Latics are now gelling in a way that is a joy to behold with the midfield rock solid and in Diame and Thomas we have two players that are the envy of many a Premier League manager but it is the emergence of Hugo Rodallega that could be the catalyst to providing an assault on the upper half of the table.

Since joining last January the Colombia international has taken time to acclimatise to his new environment but with a stunning display yesterday that acclimatisation now looks complete, he is sharp, with great feet and an awareness that belittles his age, at just turned 24 his best is surely yet to come and with 5 Premier League goals all ready under his belt this season it could be a productive year for both Hugo and the Latics.

Next up is a trip to Portsmouth to face an under fire Paul Hart who guided his Pompey side to a creditable point at Hull yesterday but the pressure is on the Golborne born manager and a Latics victory on the south coast next week could see the former Leeds player lose his job.

Martinez` way is making people sit up and take notice and with the club striving to get the fans back with special offers and initiatives we could be in for a really good season, 10 games in and there is everything to be optimistic about.

Yesterdays game showed that we are a class above the Burnley`s of the league and with Roberto at the helm it is surely an exciting time to be a Wigan Athletic supporter.
