We could blame the ref, but considering our 2nd goal was handball and shouldn't have counted I suppose it evened itself out in a bizarre way. It was pretty good performance by the team despite having Boyd and Matias starting. It was an even open start to the game but Norwich striked first although Dawson probably should have done better. We weren't behind long as Fessi reminded us what a quality player he is by smashing one in from 30+ yards for a goal of the season contender. Hutch went off injured was replaced my Pelupessy and we went in 1-1. We took the lead in the first bit of controversy as Fletcher forced one in from close range although on replay clearly flicked it in with his hand. We had several other chances with Krul saving well from Fessi & Fletcher and Fessi firing narrowly wide from distance. We were protecting our goal well with Dawson not having a save to make. Then injury time, 5 mins somehow shown, despite only 5 subs and no trainers coming on. We give away a silly FK, which was then taken 3 yards further back from where the foul took place giving the taker a better chance of getting it up and over the wall which he duly did and rescued Norwich a point. It was a good finish but it was taken from the wrong spot.


Onto our next game which is more important for our visitors, Bristol City. I know we are mathematically still in it but we all know this season is done with. Bristol are just a point off the playoffs and have a game in hand which could be crucial. We actually beat these at Ashton Gate earlier in the season so could actually do the double over them. Bristol do have an excellent away record winning 10 games and have accumulated more points on the road than at home.

  Wigan Athletic v Preston North End @DW Stadium 22/4/2019
Posted by: themaclad - 21-04-2019, 10:07 - Forum: Preston North End - Replies (1)

Off to the Dave I broke my leg at Wembley once Whelan Stadium to face the pies in what might be a must win game for the home side although do not think Rotherham are going to pick upfive points in three games to catch the Latics.
Wigan have struggled this season although their home form has kept them in a decent position, until Fridy they were pitiful away from home then go and win at Leeds with only 10 men a tremendous result.
Cook is a decent manager his sides are always competitive with a couple of ex Nobbers in the squad Joey Garner and Jamie I spilled the ball in the 93rd minute to give Donny a draw Jones.
Main danger Nick Powell quality is this lad think he is out of contract at the end of the season so be interestng to see were he ends up.
Last visit was two seasons ago was a 0-0 draw Hugill missed a penalty the highlight being very luckily not covered in a technicolour yawn in the away end.
The buggers are charging us 30 quid a pop unsurprisingly the offer has not been taken up with only about 2500 travelling to the games . Nowt on it for us bar a bit of bragging rights.

Wigan Athletic Football Club (/ˈwɪɡən/) is a professional football club in Wigan, Greater Manchester, England, which competes in the Championship, the second tier of the English football league system.

Founded in 1932, the club have played at the DW Stadium since 1999, before which they played at Springfield Park. Their colours are blue and white stripes, although all-blue shirts have been common throughout the club's history.

Wigan were elected to the Football League in 1978, and competed in the Premier League from 2005 to 2013.

They won the 2012–13 FA Cup with a 1–0 victory against Manchester City at Wembley Stadium, when Ben Watson scored the winning goal.

Wigan have also won League One and are two-times winners of the EFL Trophy. They made their European debut in the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League.

Team News: Wigan Athletic

Manager Alex Neil is still likely to be without almost a full team of players for the short Easter Monday trip to face Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

For the Good Friday win over Ipswich Town, nine senior players were absent and nothing is likely to change for the derby game 72 hours later.

Ben Pearson sits out the last of his three game suspension for the red card he received in the clash with Leeds United earlier in the month.

He is joined in the stands by the injured group of Tom Clarke, Alan Browne, Josh Harrop, Andrew Hughes, Brandon Barker, Tom Barkhuizen and Billy Bodin.

For Paul Cook will be without Cedric Kipre for the game after his red card in Saturday’s impressive win over Leeds United, with ten men, at Elland Road.
Kipre had been recalled for the game, in place of the missing Danny Fox, but saw red just 15 minutes in, with the home side then taking the lead, only for the Latics to come from behind with one man down and win the game 2-1.

Fox missed the game with a knee injury and must be considered a doubt for Monday’s game, with such a quick turnaround, whilst Michael Jacobs (hamstring) and fellow winger Anthony Pilkington – who has missed the last three with a groin injury – are also likely to miss out.

Ref Watch: Wigan Athletic

For our third Lancashire derby of the season, one of the most experienced Championship officials, Andy Madley, will take charge of a North End this Monday, as we travel to face Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

The referee will be taking charge of his fifth North End game this season – the most of any select group referee.

He was the man with the whistle for our home clash with Stoke City back in August, which ended 2-2, the 4-1 win over local rivals Blackburn Rovers in November, our recent 4-1 win at Queens Park Rangers and the victory over Bolton Wanderers at the University of Bolton Stadium in February.

He has been in charge of some of the Lilywhites’ best moments over the years, most notably the League One Play-Off Final in the 2014/15 season, where a Jermaine Beckford hat-trick led to a convincing 4-0 over Swindon Town at Wembley.

Last season, Andy refereed four PNE games. He oversaw home victories against Reading and the final day 2-1 win over Burton Albion, as well as our games away to Ipswich Town at Portman Road and the return fixture against Reading.
He was in charge for a previous trip to Loftus Road, back in the 2016/17 season. Jermaine Beckford was on the scoresheet and Nedum Onuoha scored an own goal in a 2-0 victory as Simon Grayson’s returned from London with all three points, their first win of the season.

During that campaign, Andy refereed four more North End games including both games against Newcastle United and a 5-0 victory at Deepdale against Bristol City, where Callum Robinson netted twice.

As well as the aforementioned Play-Off Final, the official also had the whistle for another 4-0 victory in the 2014/15 season. North End convincingly beat Scunthorpe United away from home, as Joe Garner netted twice.

He was the referee for our famous Capital One Cup victory over rivals Blackpool in the 2013/14 season. Tom Clarke netted the winner three minutes from time to secure a famous 1-0 win over our rivals.

So far this season, he has refereed 34 games in all competitions, issuing 99 yellow cards and three red cards, his last game being Sheffield United’s 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Good Friday.

It will be the second time that he will referee the Latics this season, with his last game being their 3-0 home defeat against Sheffield United on New Year’s Day.

On Monday, the ref will be assisted by Andrew Fox and Adam Crysell, with another experienced Championship official, Jeremy Simpson as the fourth official.

  Ecky gone after 14 matches!! Back to "square one"!
Posted by: 0762 - 18-04-2019, 20:42 - Forum: International Matches - Replies (3)

So the SFA "blazers" finally sack Alex McLeish amid one big question - "Why did they take so long to do this"? Also the SFA is poor enough as it is and will have to find funds to compensate a guy who they were paying £550k pa and IMO should never have been appointed anyway!! Now we need to appoint someone who needs to revitalise a Scotland team that is full of some great young prospects who should be progressing positively much like The Netherlands national team that had similarly "stalled" and endured a period of transition!! Of course, the main difference is organisation, wise guidance of young up n coming players and structured coaching - the KNVB has all those attributes attached to it in abundance and is there any valid comparison with the Scottish Football Association?? Sadly, very little comparison!! One positive step forward would be to appoint Stevie Clarke but I have my doubts that the Killie manager will join up with the SFA as many people hope he will!

  Bradley Welsh - the end of an era RIP!
Posted by: 0762 - 18-04-2019, 18:43 - Forum: Hibernian - No Replies

Love him or loathe him, Bradley Welsh was a "weel kent" character in the Hibs community who tragically lost his life to a coward who brazenly gunned him down in a public street in Edinburgh and alarmed many people in the local area, a shocker! IMO it places Hibs FC in a quandary because of his unsavoury past and Hibs strong stance that has always been taken against Cabbage fans who have "crossed that red line" and tarnished the club's name. However, I suspect that lotsa Hibs fans will still show some respect for someone who had "reformed" significantly in his latter years since those past controversial days in his youth, RIP.

  Title winners
Posted by: turkeydinner - 18-04-2019, 18:10 - Forum: Tottenham Hotspur - No Replies

So Tottenham players are still tired from the World cup, every time they draw or lose they are in turmoil, they never signed anyone in the last two transfer windows, some players are so tired they are dead on their feet, they made it to the ECQF and still sit in a good place in the league having been in the title race for much of the season, Harry Kane has been injured lots

All this using about sixteen bloody players!

Now if your as bored as I am watching the one potato-two potato at the top between Liverpool and The Abbasid Empire, can we please give Tottenham the title just for all the above and everything else they've had thrown at them, Jeremy Corbyn will present the trophy
