Oh the irony. Back in the Great Escape Season, it was Sheffield United's McScab and Wigan's Whelan who led the protests over Tevez and who threatened to form a footballing and legal Axis against West Ham.
On the pitch they did their level best to engineer the survival of both clubs, only for Tevez to drive a stake through the Warnock's heart with that epic winner at Old Trafford; and now, all these years later, the maverick Argentine has returned, like a member the undead, to sink his fangs into Whelan's neck.
How deliciously appropriate would it be if that Tevez goal on Wednesday, and defeat at Upton Park, ultimately cost Wigan their place in the Premiership?
I can feel a legal action coming on! If West Ham had not signed Tevez on that Third Party Agreement, he would never have signed for Man Utd and so would never have moved across Manchester and so would not have scored that winner on Wednesday. If Wigan go down, it will all be West Ham's fault!
Good job Duxbury has moved on, otherwise he might be penning a compensation package even as we speak!
