Wigan Athletic 12th Man - 26/01/12
This weeks Wigan Evening Post 12th Man page featured one contribution from Vital Latics:
We're In Trouble Now!
Saturday's defeat at Loftus Road has left the Latics deep in trouble, two glorious opportunities arose in the first ten minutes when balls were flashed across the QPR box, but unfortunately nobody was willing to gamble and the chances of simple tap-ins went begging, how many times this season have we seen that scenario? Failure in the final third is what is killing the club this season, the lack of quality up front as left the Latics as the lowest scorers not just in the Premier League, but in the entire top five divisions.
QPR aren't a good side by any stretch of the imagination, a flat performance and 3-1 defeat left quite a few Latics fans deflated at the chances of survival come the end of the season, quality is needed and this transfer window is of the upmost importance if the club are to have any chance whatsoever of reaching their target. A couple of new faces are required just to freshen up what is looking like a tired squad of players.
A weekend break awaits, it's FA cup 4th round time and we won't be there, maybe after all it was for the better falling at the first hurdle, at least Martinez and Jones will be able to work with the team on the training ground ahead of next Tuesday's trip to White Hart Lane, hopefully they will be able to bed some new blood into the squad as well before we face Spurs in what will be another tough game for the Latics.
I am worried!
