    Team to face Wigan?

    I'd pretty much agree with that line up, and while Coutinho is still maybe a little of an unknown factor, recon that looks like our best starting 11.

    But I'd also agree with you that this is a potential banana skin, so we'd better take it very seriously. We really slipped in the run in last season, and maybe the focus on the cups was our downfall, and while we were up for the tough cup challenges like the home and away leg against City, we over looked matches like this one in the league. My worry is that there will be a hangover from the Zenit game, and with 4th really gone, it will be hard to get everyone focused.

    • I think everybody will be fully focussed the more I think about it. So many players have so much still to prove and I think at 10 points with 11 games to go, there is still interest if not a strong chance of clawing it back. If Arsenal were to win at Spurs and Chelsea were to slip to a draw with WBA, a win over Wigan going into our Spurs/Chelsea matches could be pivotal. Obviously, there is more chance of us not winning those 3 games then winning them but the carrot is definitely there. 10 points can turn to 3/4 very quickly as we well know!

      Yours massively hopefully optimistically

      • I hope your right, and to be honest I keep catching myself looking at the table and thinking "if this result goes this way, and that result goes that way..". The fact we still have to play Spurs, Chelsea, and Everton as well as some of those above us still to play each other also adds to the "what if" factor.

        However unless Spurs collapses, which I don't see happen (Bale's goal against WHU may have put that out of my mind) I think 4th is a bridge too far. However we have to go out and try to get maximum points from the matches left. We can't control what other clubs, and the table will be what it be at the end of the season.
