'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Magnificent Seven Fan's Q&A Take Two: Wigan

Google language translator



1. Essentially, Wigan are on fire and are clear in the UEFA Cup league places on merit. What's your secret?

Good manager and a good 11, when we have injuries or suspensions we can struggle a bit, not much of a squad, but Bruce and Black have got the team playing well together and although Zaki, Valencia and Palacios get all the plaudits Cattermole is key to our success. Future England international there.

2. Who should City's hapless defenders be wary of this weekend?

Zaki could give City the run around but Valencia WILL, you already know all about him from the game at the JJB earlier this season and he`s got better with every game.

3. The transfer window is open. Who do you realistically want Steve Bruce to sign and who would you like to see let go?

Would like to see a left sided midfield player brought in, we have Ryan Taylor, a right back, playing there at the moment, as for letting go, Kevin Kilbane joined Hull this week and we can't afford anyone else out with the size of the squad.

4. What's your verdict on Man City's erratic form in the first half of the season and current unrest?

A little surprising with the quality of players. I ain't a big fan of Hughes and feel Sven might have carried the team forward this year. To be honest, I bet Hughes is sweating on his job security with the way the results have been going.

5. 'The City Three Step challenge:' What comes into your head when you think of Manchester City? Give us first the image you see, second the feeling you get and third the word that sums us up....

Colin Bell…Maine Road and being sunk by Goaters hand ball in the play-offs leaving me gutted…Tragic

6. 'Six Plus Five:' FIFA President Sepp Blatter is continuing his campaign to impose a maximum quota of five overseas players on every English team. Do you agree or disagree with his proposal?

Disagree with the proposal because I can't see it working, the top clubs will find a way around it.

7. What's your prediction for next Saturday?

1-2 to the Latics

Very many thanks and respect going out to Worbo and the Vital Wigan team. Yet another excellent interview.
