Heinze Means Baines

Heinze Means Baines

It`s being reported in several news outlets that Wigan`s Leighton Baines could be the subject of bids from either Liverpool or Manchester United depending on the outcome of the Gabrielle Heinze saga

Heinze appears to be keen for a move away from Old Trafford and is wanted by Liverpool but United are reluctant to sell the Argentina international to one of their fiercest rivals

If Heinze does leave United then they could turn to Baines as a possible replacement, if Liverpool fail to get Heinze then they will turn to Baines to fill their left back roll

There is also interest from abroad for Heinze and United appear to be willing to sell if indeed Heinze does move abroad this could then spark a tug of war between the two North West giants for Baines

Also in the equation are Everton and Manchester City, once the bidding starts Everton could find themselves unable to compete with the financial muscle of the three other clubs

This little saga could run right up to the transfer deadline and advice to Baines must be sit tight and weigh up all the options before making your choice

If I was Baines I`d stay put at the Latics

He`s guaranteed to play every week and the club are willing to make him the top earner at the JJB, he could sit tight and review his situation in January

If you was Baines what would you do?

This story is now getting loads of media spin maybe there is a bit of truth in there somewhere. If I was Baines I would stay put or go to a club where I was guarranteed 1st team football, thats not Utd or L'pool

Why is Stephane Henchoz not in your poll? He was a great (ish) defender for Liverpool.

Only allowed 14 spaces and as Henchoz only played basically half a season I left him out...though I do agree ghe was superb

I remember the time he stopped Thierry Henry from scoring in the F.A. cup final of 2001. The amount of times he got away eith handballs for us was insane!

The action(?) from yesterday's game at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest which ended goalless:

Report - Latics 0 Forest 0 - What A Shocker

Thirteen games to save our Championship status, first up a home game against Nottingham Forest who are on a shocking run of form, conceded 10 goals in their last three matches, three of their first choice defenders missing through injury, they had lost 11 of their 16 away games this season with a -16 goal difference on the road and sat just six points above us in the table, surely a game that we would set out to win.

Checking the team selection I felt slightly optimistic but slightly conf
