    • Just seen BAE's challenge, and it was quite ugly. Hate to see that at any time, but when we're 3-0 up? If he gets a retrospective ban, we can't complain, but we seem to struggle a bit without him.

    • il steal your thread!

      an important win especially after dropping pts to wolves & losing to city. it was fully deserved although we did take our foot off the gas in the 2nd half.

      bale & modric were outstanding. 2 good goals from bale & 1 good goal for modric as well as an assist & more good work for the killer goal.

      ade worked hard & did a great hold up job. parker was good as always. walker, king & kaboul all solid. niko did ok, some good things & some wasteful things. ekotto was poor thou. he lost it on the edge of the box trying stupid tricks & gave the ball away a few times in dangerous positions. he had a lot of space going foward but his final ball was usually very poor. he should have also been sent off for a nasty challenge on di santo. no more of those kind of tackles ekotto! they should have had figuoroa sent off a lot early for a nasty kick on niko.

      lennon & defoe missed out through injuries. vdv & walker went off injured (typical now that corlukas gone!). so we only had ade & lancaster as fowards left. who is lancaster? i didnt no either. he is a youngster coming through the academy. he came on for ade at the end.

      wigan had far too many half chances in the 2nd half & we would get punished by better teams. i dont like the complicancy we sometimes have at home to the weaker teams.
      bad news- lennon, defoe, vdv & walker all injured.
      good news- sandro came back & is fit again.

      all in all a derserved 3pts. chelsea nicked a draw but at least they didnt win. lets hope arsenal drop a couple of pts tommrow & then we can keep the gap wide in our quest for 3rd!
