Wigan Athletic may not appear to be the BBC`s, or more notably Match of the Days favourite Premier League side, but the beebs chief football writer Phil McNulty has heaped a bit of praise the Latics way by naming the win over West Ham at the DW Stadium as the Premier League game of the season, and what a game it was.
On McNulty`s blog he has posted a season review, Thrills, Chills and Moments to Savour, quite a good read it is too, anyway the defining piece of his article is set out below:
GAME OF THE SEASON
Wigan Athletic 3-2 West Ham United. The game that had everything. West Ham in the lead and looking at survival before Wigan, on the brink of the drop, fought back to win and send the Hammers down.
The last 10 minutes were truly magnificent and madcap as both sides knew only a winning goal would do, all played out amid scenes of near hysteria at the DW Stadium. And who could forget the infamous light aircraft trailing the banner bearing the words: 'Avram Grant - Millwall Legend.'
The match just edged out the 3-3 draw between Spurs and Arsenal at White Hart Lane - a classic of its kind.
