no-one-is-no-one - Thank you for your objectivity.
Dennis - Well Well. Coincidentally, a comment from a Millwall fan. Trying to slur Wigan prior to the kick-off of FA Semi-Final. It is a very good timing indeed and only God knows your true intention. I can only say let football does the talking during the Semi-Final. The match will show whether Wigan players are #$%$ or outplay Millwall fair and square.
Yvonne M - We are the few clubs in EPL that have yet to be relegated. Unlike Newcastle. Wigan is still well liked and respected by a lot of managers. I lose count of how many times managers have been saying that we are at the wrong side of the table or they would like to see Wigan to survive among few relegation contenders. Have you seen anyone that come out to condemn Wigan except for Newcastle fans. I don't see Wenger or Fergie or any other respectable non-Newcastle managers or players saying that Wigan should be relegated or condemned. This shows that we do have a good reputation among players and managers generally. This is a one-off incident so please move on. There were worse or malicious tackles in EPL and world history. Usually people who condemn Wigan for no good reasons are fans of Wigan Warriors and now I may add fans of Newcastle in the future. I think Newcastle should focus on the relegation fight and not this incident anymore. Ronnie Brown - I have also reported you to Yahoo for abusive language.
GOH, it will be great day for football when Wigan get relegated. Dave Whelan #$%$ on when he got his leg broken in a Cup Final but states on MOTD there was nothing wrong with McMamamans tackle. Used to like Wigan, but how they are changing for the worst. Championship beware, here they come.
Well as a devout Millwall fan i had to think what would happen if Wigwam do that type of tackel on our players on April 13th at Wembley kick off 17.15pm. How ANYONE can justiify that type of rash challenge beggars belief. No wonder they call you " WIGWAM PATHETIC"
ronnie brown - I nearly wanted to stoop as low as you but I thought to myself if I used personal attacks on you then I am no different from you. I just want to clarify that I can definitely spell and speak better English than you. I am also hundred percent positively sure that I came from a better university than you. Furthermore, we are talking about football here so please be a gentleman and stop using personal attacks. Anyway, I reported your comment to Yahoo for abusive language. Back to football, if I am not wrong, Micheal Owen's misfiring was one of the key reasons that Newcastle was relegated. Furthermore, Newcastle is one of the richest club in EPL so they only have their own to blame for their current plight. Maybe, you can use playstation to get Newcastle to win the EPL instead. As for me, I am too busy with my meaningful and busy working life to play playstation for your info.
Could Wigan's late (illegal) winner eventually send Villa down?
Barring something very unusual from QPR/Reading, I think its between Wigan, Villa, and Sunderland for the drop, looking at the run in I would bet on Villa- less experienced squad than Wigan, and a manager who is likely to be sacked if they do go down- pressure could tell and they have some tough fixtures..
The late tackle was bad, the handball in the penalty area was a foul. But it was not Wigan`s decision to make. It was very bad decisions or no decisions at all by the officials. Some comments on here saying that Wigan`s players were thugs is just wrong and have been posted by idiots who know absolutely feck all about anything..And the comments from the mackems, well that is to be expected, education never reached sunderland. It was a bad day for Newcastle United and best forgotten. Somehow I don`t think that late tackle will be overlooked by the FA.
It is about time for Wigan to start flexing their talent. They were the better team today.
What Wigan brings to the game are modesty and humility. We know that we are not rich and do not spend as much as Newcastle or most of the EPL clubs but we survive with good recruitment policy, good coach and hardworking players. What do Newcastle got to offer? Micheal Owen, haha. Most managers like Wigan including Fergie and Wenger and they want Wigan to survive. I don't think most managers feel the same when Newcastle got relegated.
HALSEY you you are not fit to referee over hackney marshes you should be ashamed to collect you'r fee
Stop moaning, Toon fans-- if it had been the other way round you would utter a peep!! Shut it! You're not the only club with a bone to pick---that's football---when you need the points it gets dirty---Wigan wanted it more than you today!
Wigan is the best and Newcastle should be relegated again.
Peter--glad to hear someone else has this problem--Ikept thinking it was my Computer Everytime I submit a comment they disappear---I get 'em back by submitting a blank
Really hope Wigan get relegated. Cheats and thugs. I mean what do they bring to the EPL? Just go, and let a proper football club take your place.

Shaun Maloney (Wigan): A constant thorn in Newcastle's side throughout. He was a real menace with his forward runs and was unlucky not to get a goal in the first half. Hardly put a pass wrong all afternoon.
