Well, it was a disappointing game, Wigan were awful, but were the better side which says alot for us
5 new signings, who haven't been playing alot of football had an effect especially in the 2nd half, they all seemed a bit tired and off the pace, and to say our subs bench was shocking would be an understatement, where the f**k was Feilhaber again, no Miller, Earnshaw, Jones or Pearson available either, so we had to make the bench up off some right dregs...
Ghlay was the main positive, looked the best player on the pitch despite not playing since last season, seemed to be playing quite deep though, and would like to see him get forward more.
We never gave Villa much of a chance get hoofing balls to the guy when he's only about 5 ft something, still managed to win some headers, and is a willing runner, maybe in the next game we'll actually get him a chance on goal
Think he would do better with Miller up there with him, Barnes isn't really a striker and doesn't know how to link up with another striker.
Oh and just in case anyone was clinging on to any faint hopes...we're definately down now.
