Yes he was down at a goal kick or throw-in towards the end - was stretching his calf.

So he wasn't in control and used excessive force? That's a red isn't it?

The push on Barnes looked soft from where I was in the East Stand. Yes there was contact, but throwing the hands up in the air made it less likely the foul would be given.

I'm struggling to remember what happened to Jay, but I remember him being down.


Jay Rodriguez got absolutely clattered on the edge of the Wigan box. Looked a dreadful challenge

Enjoyed today but performance wise we never got out of 2nd gear!

Barry was absolutely class today!

J-Rods header and belter were worth the entrance money alone

As I said it was a strikers tackle, red would of been harsh.

You don't need to push someone much when they are off the ground, it was a good shove and he Barns would of been 1 on 1 after he bought that ball under control. Unbelievable the lines man missed it.

The worst for me was the two footed tackle on J Rod on the edge of their box.

Didn't think we'd get a second after Gayle went off, as I don't think we had any dangerous  shots first half. Then absolutely cracking second goal from JRod, but it does worry me not having Gayle available. HRK has no pace whatsoever, always wants to stop and turn the play backwards because of it. He also seemed to miss a sitter fom close range. Barry another class performance and also managed to last 90 minutes. Good all round performance by the defence.

Whilst Gayle is out, I think we are going to have to use Sako down the middle to add some pace.  Yes HRK could do a job for 60mins but we need options from the bench.  We are not going to be able to really stretch teams with lacking pace.

Unluckiest team ever? We've got an 18 point deduction between the 24th and 25th game of a second tier season 3 times? Incredible stat mate.  :-X

Which will mean he's almost certainly out for Saturday. I wouldn't have been as concerned had the Robson-Kanu that had been playing since the Leeds game turned up yesterday but I thought he was dreadful.

I thought he had a typo and meant our best total after 25 games is 47 points.

As an aside I thought Hegazi came in for some very rough treatment both on and off the ball yesterday. He did well not to react on several occasions. The 'ref' had an absolute 'mare of a game in the face of some very Macari like cynicism and off the ball foul play and brinkmanship. Extremely naive performance.
