Congratulations Ireland & MH will be in problem when Johnson return. Who will play of them, About Wigan match we must make the first win over them in the Premier league & will finally disappear Middlesbrough result from the list after 5 month :)

Wigan is going to be a tough challenge city 81!!
Johnny Baguette
Wigan are notoriously difficult to beat, so we cant afford to get carried away just yet. As for Johnson city81, if he's fit, he will either have to sit it out on the bench, or he may play in instead of Elano just to solidify the middle of the park. Then there is Petrov of course! Another nice dilemma!

Since narrowly losing 0-1 at home to Chelsea, Wigan have kept evreything very tight. They beet Notts County 4-0 in the Carling, then won 5-0 away to this season's surprise package Hull. Then 1-1 Sunderland and 0-0 Spurs. They have not been conceding many goals but are capable -- especially if Emile Heskey is on form -- of scoring a good few goals. We'll just have to be on our mettle. I like the idea of starting with Johnson to see how he and Kompany can close down midfield, maybe bringing Petrov and Ireland on at half time. But I expect Hughes will try to stick with the same side that thumped Portsmouth. Either way I can see us winning.
Sindbad
You'd like to think so Sinbad. It will the most physical test Robinho has come up against so far, so it will be interesting to see how he handles it. Anyway, Brighton first, so we must try and put that to bed before thinking about Sunday.
oliverblue
I can't see many of the team, if any, playing against Brighton so that will give us a full uniterupted week for MH to find the best formula to take on Wigan. The one noticable thing now is how he is getting them up to full fitness which certainly showed after the game in Cyprus on Thursday followed by Sunday when you wouldn't have guessed they had been playing in hot conditions a couple of days earlier. There will be more temas on the end of pompey scoreline this season. Also I must point out an excellent article today on the MCFC website by our new Chairman which must surely silence the 'Here today gone tomorrow' knockers.
alphieblues
Yes it makes good reading doesn't it Alphie? Good times are hear again! Just waiting on the official announcement now!
oliverblue
Some of those goals were sublime. Jo's ability to link up play is shining through.
Johnny Baguette
JB and thats only a start, they will improve once they know each other better.Alphie, I'm sure that the Chairmans statement was what all City fans wanted to hear.
Buzz Lightyear
I certainly feel a damn sight more reassured than I was a fortnight ago. Talk about a feel good factor!!
Johnny Baguette
I remember when we were both discussing that we may have points deducted and going into administration, wonder what the opposite of going into administation is? I still have this feeling of it being all unreal. Wenger spouting in the Arsenal programme about why Manchester City? Could it be that he just dismisses any club in the league apart from the big four. Who is the most worried, who is is most debt that not to qualify for the Champions league would be a disaster for their club.
Buzz Lightyear
I agree with that vote mself
