What The Papers Say -  Latics Vs Birmingham


Following yesterdays defeat at the hands of Alex McLeish`s Birmingham City I thought it might be an idea to see what the papers are saying, so as to try and get a balanced view so to speak, having been to the game and then watch again via Sky Sports Football First I felt that we were a tad unlucky to lose, a mad 30 minutes in the second half saw us undone.

In my opinion a draw would have probably been a fair result, but what do the press think, take a look below:



News of the World - A Kick Up The Brum - ALEX McLEISH claims he did little more than indulge in a polite half-time chat as he attempted to rectify Birmingham's wretched first-half showing.

Daily Mail - Larsson At The Double - In the half-time hush of the Birmingham dressing room, manager Alex McLeish carefully chose the words that produced an impressive response. - read the full article here


The Guardian - Birmingham Come From Behind - Having taken the lead through Charles N'Zogbia in the 33rd minute Wigan, showing more pace and thrust, should have extended their lead before half-time - read the full article here


The Sun - Wigan 2-3 Birmingham - BIRMINGHAM bounced back from a goal down to pile the misery on Wigan at the DW Stadium. - read the full article here


The Mirror - 3 in 11 Minutes - A resurgent Birmingham produced a rousing second-half comeback to leave frustrated Wigan boss Roberto Martinez to contemplate yet another wretchedly inconsistent afternoon. - read the full article here

Latics v Brentford - Big Game Preview

Latics go into the game against Brentford hoping to build on the win away at Burton last Saturday, another three points this afternoon could see us lifted out of the bottom three come 5pm, what a change around that would be from the despair that we were all feeling as we came in to the new year.

The truth of the matter is that the team is too good to be stuck where it is in the league, we have enough quality in the ranks to be higher up the table, hopefully the last two games have shown t
