Just a final point on Everton - my Toffees supporting son-in-law reckons that they are a better team without Rooney, and he was glad to see Lescott go as he was “crap in the second half of last season” I went along to watch Maine Road F.C., hello to Reddish Blues Stan,Gary, Dave Miller, and our very own Colin Nicholls and Colin Broadbent. Road lost 2-1 to Colne in a poor game.
So, results weren’t too good, Spurs winning, Liverpool winning so far, though Villa lost heavily, and possible threat Everton only drew at Wolves, who we beat 3-0. How did Vidic get away with that elbow at Bolton, and why was it not even picked up on MOTD? I wonder?
So, Wigan tomorrow night and here’s the It’s A Fix extract:
Last promotion 2005, a fantastic achievement, Lg Cup R/Up in 2005/06. Most recent connections: Antoine Sibierski, Michael Brown. Big name supporters? George Formby (deceased) 12th league meeting
Roberto Martinez’s squad includes : Kirkland, Caldwell, Bramble, Scharner, Melchiot, Thomas, Diame, Figueroa, Rodallega, N’Zogbia, Scotland, Moses, Koumas..
This season so far : At the JJB in October it was a 1-1 draw. Wigan went ahead through N’Zogbia on the stroke of half time and City equalised through Petrov just after the break. Zabaleta was sent off. Crowd was 20,005 with 4631 Blues.
Currently they’re 16th with 31 points from 31 games and 3 wins 2 draws and 10 losses away from home.
Our form in Manc v Wigan : At COMS last January it was a Zabaleta goal which clinched the welcome 1-0 win, the first in 9 Prem meetings. Crowd was 41,262 (2,411 Piepeople)
Comment : They’re a bit of an enigma really, losing to the rags then beating Chelsea, and Liverpool, so anything can happen, except we’re due another win.
Wind Ups : Where are you now you are shit
WWYWYW Shite : Well supported in the non – league days, but down to an average of 2,758 in season 89/90.
Their current average home attendance : 18,097 (20,447 highest so far)
