Beating Wigan Isn't Enough!
The Wigan victory over Arsenal has sunk us deep in the mire. They will not go down now, and come the home game against Hull, may have nothing to play for. There is no love for West Ham over at Wigan because of the Tevez affair and it may suit them to send us down by way of deferred justice. I would fancy Hull to win that one to be honest.
In addition, Hull now have two home games against Villa and Sunderland. Who knows what Villa team will turn up but, even if Hull lose that one, I would make them at least evens to beat Sunderland. Six points for Hull would still leave us safe on goal difference IF we beat Wigan, but what if Hull scrap for a draw against Villa or Liverpool?
The trouble is, our home record against Wigan is poor and unless we pick up a point at Liverpool, the pressure will really be on next weekend. I very much fear we will draw that game anyway. Then we are in desperate trouble.
We now need Wigan to get a result against Hull and hope that Villa win and Sunderland at least battle for a draw. One away win all season, and their defeat at the Boleyn don’t bode well for a Sunderland win do they?
This is going to the wire and a Tevez led Unreal City may just prove a cheese wire around our throats. This weekend has been disastrous! If you have a god, time to say a prayer!
