Wigan is going to be a tough challenge city 81!!

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.

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.
23/09/2008 09:36:00
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.

Yes it makes good reading doesn't it Alphie? Good times are hear again! Just waiting on the official announcement now!
23/09/2008 10:19:00
Some of those goals were sublime. Jo's ability to link up play is shining through.

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.
