v Wigan (a) match day thread

Recommended Posts

Well well well , I never have an ounce of luck with things like this so it looks like we all might have turned a corner together . 

Off up to Wigan who have one of the best home records in the championship so won't be expecting an easy game from a well organised , good passing Wigan team . 

Got my team prediction totally wrong for the Swansea game after I had brief hissy fit with 4-3-3 , but in 4-3-3 we believe. 

Same 11 for me maybe swap Nugent for Marriott 

3 pm k.o at the DW stadium 8/12/2018

Not been a happy hunting ground for us over the years but we’ll be expected to go and win this one. Won’t be easy, but if you’ve got aspirations of the top 6 you’ve gotta be winning battles like this. They’re a good side under cook who’ll no doubt play some decent football, so we need to go there full of energy and workrate and get at them for the minute go, to try and control the match like we did today. Can’t be lax and give them any time and space cause they’ll hurt us, we know how many points we’ve dropped there in the past, no complacency please.

Cant have any complaints at the team who played yesterday even if I don’t think it’s our strongest, so same team for me.

We've won 4 of our last 5 matches there, the one was in that season. Its at home that we have struggled against them, just 2 wins, 1 in the FA Cup under Burley and a week after I was born, almost 33 years ago.

I'd swap Nugent for Marriott too, then if we're comfortable after 70 minutes, put Nugent on for him especially if he's still slightly carrying a knock - we need him fit and available

Funnily, I would do the opposite as I thought Nugent pulled their defence all over the place first half yesterday. That aspect of his game isn't always appreciated.  Let him tire Wigan's back line (and himself!) out then bring Marriott on to reap the rewards.

You could be onto something there actually, maybe would be worth a go, send Marriott at them when they've got tired legs

Or start them both? Nuge does his excellent work whist Jack does his great stuff simultaneously, rather than wait until late in the second half. It might tire Wigan twice as quick and we’ll have a goal or 2 too.

Well what a conundrum I'm going to this one but we need to lose .We haven't lost a game in December since 2014 and if we don't get it out of the way this Saturday you can guess when it will be  ,bloody Forest.

Get a grip man, who says Super Frank's heroes can't keep that record going? Wigan and Forest are hardly Man City and Liverpool, are they?

Right let me explain, we haven't lost in December since 2014 the chances are this will shortly come to an end as all sequences do .Of course I don't REALLY want us to lose but IF we did I'd rather it be Wigan than fooking Forest.
