John, you've about summed up my thoughts during and after the match in a well crafted sarcastic summary which I truly appreciate and can say for once, am in 100% full agreement with you.
Perhaps you can keep your good journalistic view going and explain to me, or maybe someone else, anyone else, WHY THE FCUK is Jovanovic even on the bench if he's never going to play??????????????????????????
If Meireles was injured and had to come off at half then certainly switching Maxi to the right and putting on Jovan to the left would have made perfect sense... but no, he played Jonjo out there where he looked like a deer in head lights and completed more passes to Wigan and the stands than he did to Red.
AND THEN after dropping a goal, trying to chase one back, we bring on our most worthless, slowest player in the squad to hold I don't know what, instead of bringing on perhaps our fastest player to help aid Gerrard and Torres in attack.....
Why Roy WHY???????
If we had won this one, and drawn to Stoke, I could have said ok..fine 4 pts from 6, 2 away and a very long 2 weeks job well done.. but now our 2 best players were run ragged again, Jovan is collecting dust and FCUK ALL!!
So if we come out and win at Stoke and thus have the 4 points from these two games will that still be OK?
As for Jova, well he has been just about total shyte a la Babel so why would we be wanting to bring him on the pitch? He seems to be another case of just how many chances do you give the guy to phuck up before you finally realize that he is useless.

I hate to be negative, but based on the news reported from Roy after the match, that many of his players are not fit still - Glen, Babel, Ngog, Kyrgiakos, Aurelio, Agger, and Meireles had to be removed after 45 playing through a severe illness, if we are lucky enough to go into the Britannia, vs a healthy, physical side who just scored 3 vs BHC, who we barely struggled 0-0 with and WIN, then yes I will say it's been an ok week, in reverse fashion than I'd have prefered.
As for Jovan, I am not a swan singing his song or pleading his case, but a handful of us, including myself have labeled him as rubbish, but then again we've only seen him in a few starts and maybe 8 games max... certainly he can't be lumped in just yet with Babel. And, again for a team like Wigan who enjoy to try a wide open game and play along the floor, aka football, why wouldn't he at least be given 10-15 minutes when we started to show a little steam in claiming a late victory?
If he's had enough time for you or anyone to really judge him, that's fine, he's no good, but why then, is he in the bench, when players we all prefer like a certain Pacheco are not, and then not even used.
We couldn't complete 3 passes in a row for a period of time, nor could Shelvey or anyone other than Torres or Gerrard run past a Wigan player for a vast majority of the 2nd half, when obviously it was still a wide open game for the taking, at least to Wigan it was... There was no harm in playing Jovan at that point to at the very least help with some pace, force Wigan backwards and maybe help Stevie and Torres in the fast breaks they created on 0.0 fumes of energy.
We might as well have a 3 man bench, goalie, and 2 def mids, one of which couldn't beat a legless man in a race.. I will say of the 3 subs, eccleston was the most positive and most likely to do anything positive, but he came on last and only had what 6 minutes? Not much time for a kid to get any rhythm with players who've run and played their a$$ off for 85 minutes..
This one is all on Roy... Oh and by the way, how would we have dealt if Carra had picked up a second yellow or got a red for a few of his questionable challenges with 0 defenders on the bench??
I feel lucky to have left DW with a point when it could have been 4-1 Wigan.. 1-1 flatters us based on the run of play for 30 mins in the 2nd half. If someone saw something else please let me know.. I'm generally an extremely positive, glass full kinda guy. THIS WAS RUBBISH, case closed.
Off to Brittania we go.. our best players gassed or ill, and the youngsters in horrible form.
How do you expect Roy to be all things to all people if he stops putting himself & his position first .
Roy has a responsibility to all things & all people & must please them in accordance with the Nature of the Goddess .
How is he expected to do that by behaving masculine & beastly & making single minded decisions that are in conflict with the Moon Child as she enters Aries ?
Surely you cant expect him to sacrifice the Children , Oh Goddess Please wont someone think of the poor poor children !!!? for the sake of points , Goals , Clean sheets , & the dreaded league after so many years avoiding the beastly thing ?
No Jason you must repent your triumph lusting ways that the Evil Shankly & his disciples Paisley , Fagan & Dalglish deceived us into desiring by giving us nights of joy that formed our characters which we will be unable to forget for the rest of our lives at the expense of our inner Goddess !
Repent Jason & Join us in our ever so slow rise , our steadied ship , our safe pair of hands , our all new modern LFC that is free from the past & its sinfully proud & victorious ways .
We are the all new all caring all sharing LFC & mid table stability shall be the battle cry that sees us avoid the blessed relegation which the Goddess in her Kindness has so sweetly tempted us with .
Alas , the way Roy is over performing we shall acquire the dreaded 50 points that will see us remain in the Ghastly Premier League for another season but if we all grow breasts between now & next season perhaps we shall be blessed with relegation & released from the vile pursuit or Trophy hunting .
We can only hope .
God Bless the Children & all who contribute to our cause by scoring against us .....
And Please Please Please
Dont forget to spare a thought for the children !!!!!
