Wigan Athletic - Cat Calling

Wigan Athletic - Cat Calling


Vital member Phil Blinston (zakidaman) looks ahead to this afternoons game with Sunderland and gives us his verdict on how the game will unfold, over to you Phil:

Cat 'calling' maybe, but not another mauling.


Phil Blinston Latics Fan
(zakidaman)


Latics players may be licking their wounds after last weeks mauling at Spurs, but tomorrow, Bruce returns to the DW for first time since his move to Sunderland. If anyone was in any doubt before this game, that this was going to be a hard fought battle for the points, then be of no doubt now.

Latics are in no mood for another drubbing and I'm certain a large home crowd will be demanding maximum effort from the Latics. Bruce will be at the dugout in the newly named Springfield Park Stand, and I'm hoping the spirit of the old Spring Park will be working its Magic for Roberto Martinez.

Bruce will also be facing the wrath from home fans opposite, as the man who said 'the difference between Wigan and Sunderland, is that it's like shopping at Harrods and not Tesco's", well tomorrow Latics will be turning Clubcard points into Premiership points, and Bruce will have to walk away with his empty Harrods Bag.

Latics will turn on the Style, and when they do few teams can live with us. Tomorrow I think Roberto Martinez will find the 'ON' switch.

Bruce would have been looking to get something from this game. Bent has been on fire, and I expect him to play tomorrow, but he and his players must now be feeling the nerves, as they must be expecting a backlash from Latics.

Long balls to his target man Bent are expected. Bruce is also renowned for physical tactics and this had Kieran Richardson and Phil Bardsley picking up their fourth yellow cards of the season during Sunderland's win over Arsenal last weekend, the next yellow card either player picks up will eventuate in an automatic one match ban for the next game ahead.

Those two players should tread carefully as should also Michael Turner, who will also be available for selection against Wigan after he served a one match ban for picking up five yellow cards previously, and I have no doubt the referee will need to keep a close eye on them.

Wigan will be up for this and will be a handful, but Bruce will be keen to make an impact. I'll go for a 'Home WIN'

My Verdict 3-2 Latics.

Latics may start with Kirkland, Figueroa, Scharner, Bramble, Melchiot, Rodallega, Gomez, Diame, Thomas, N'Zogbia, Scotland.

Wrong again - he said the money provided for transfers would allow him to shop at Harrod's and not Tesco's. You really are bitter and twisted aren't you. Propaganda Mr Goebbels, if you say it often enough it must be true - doughnut

Your statement above confirms:- You say "he said the money provided for transfers would allow him to shop at Harrods and not Tesco's" He wasn’t really off to Harrods was he silly billy. It’s was he meant that matters, not what he actually said. He inferred Harrods as in Sunderland, and Tesco as in Wigan. The media and the supporters got that one easily enough, so why not you. It was a derogatory statement in the first place, and the funny part is he still wants to shop at Tesco lol. Sum's him up I think!

zakidaman - you've just confirmed what I said, you really are bitter and twisted and ready to accept the stupid propaganda statement from the press, oh and yes, ignorant supporters. The statement meant what it meant and wasn't a slight on anyone, unless you want to include Birmingham City, Sheff Utd, Crystal Palace, etc. He was saying this is the first time I've had lots of money to spend - not Wigan are second class because they didn't give me tons of money - who'se the silly billy, you are - doughnut

Bitter and twisted. What else am I lol. Oh yes, I'm Mr Mr Goebbels lol, and now I'm the silly billy and a doughnut aswell. Oh, and we have ignorant supporters too. Oh and it was all just media propaganda. Maybe you have a ittle problemo. So Kind Sir, what makes you think you are so knowlegable? Maybe all that sunshine on the East coast is getting to ya lol I'm glad he left. he played boring long ball football. Is that bitter. It's fact. He's another Sam Allydice. Some of his signings were dodgy. Oh, you forgot to add, City fans to your list of teams lol. They taunt him because he's ex UTD. Bruce got lucky away. This time he was back at his old club and not once did he mention how well Wigan played. "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when sky are grey, you'll never know dear, how much I love you so, so please dont take my sunshine away" lol. Learn the words mate, sing along and be happy. It's just a game, you lost!! Get over it.

Bruce said he was going to build a Dynasty at Wigan. This was the second time around at our club. I have a right to feel a bit bitter. He referred to Wigan as Tesco’s and Sunderland as Harrods on Sky Sports news verbally. No one forced him to say anything. It wasn’t media propaganda silly man. Bruce was on 45k/week. Sunderland pays him 65k/week. The man’s a mercenary. As soon as there’s a bit more money on the table he’s off again. Whelan talked about him being good enough for a top 4 club. But the silly man when to you lot instead. We have a better manager now and are a better team in the wake of Potato Head. There is no more bitterness here. Just relief he’s gone.
