What The Papers Say - Latics 4-3 Rovers

What The Papers Say - Latics 4-3 Rovers

Following what was an exhilarating game that saw the Latics triumph 4-3 over Blackburn it`s very easy to get carried away, so I thought I`d trawl my way through the Sunday`s papers to see if they agreed with me, that the Latics were fantastic, you know what? They do seem to agree, take a look below:

The Independent - 'The way the talented young McCarthy chipped the ball up twice on his right foot before finishing with his left was a delight to see.' - The Independent

The Daily Express - 'In a downpour at the DW Stadium, the goals flew in. Good goals, direct goals, scruffy goals, penalties and, from James McCarthy, an extraordinary juggle and half-volley that he had no right to score on a bog of a pitch.' The Daily Express

The Mirror - 'In one of the games of the season, McCarthy scored one of the goals of the season to give Wigan their first win of 2011' The Mirror

The People - 'Although a six-hour deluge left the DW Stadium pitch like a quagmire, it made for cracking entertainment' The People

The Mail - 'Few people would have expected such a scoring spree. But they edged out Blackburn during a thrilling second half containing five goals.' The Mail

Some positive press, makes a pleasant change
