Well done Rob and Ryan - men of the match for me. Rob Green saved us the point today.

Liitle more to praise though.

Defence under perpetual pressure because no there was no creativity, authority or possession in midfield - this is supposededly our strong suit.

We badly need more leadership in midfield, we need creativity, we need punch up front, we need to retain possession for more than 5 seconds and we need Bosingwa to leave and quite possibly another 10 to leave with him. I'll name them if you like, Harry. Not your fault they're here, but you are stuck with them. Are they faking commitment in training? Because it doesn't seem to show on match day.

On any other day a 2-2 away in Wintry Wigan would have been OK, but this was the third consecutive weak team we failed to punish.

What will happen when we come up against a good team?

Ten wins from 22 games? Not a chance.

PS another brace for DJ as our exiles and ex-es continue to flourish away from W12.

Wigan were a weak team yet they outplayed us easily

Again we never really looked dangerous within 20 yards of the goal

Bosingwa was playing like Wigans 12th man. He cost us the first goal by giving away a needless free kick. His attitude throughout was of 'couldn't care less'

We were very very lucky not to loose by 2 or 3 goals.

BUT that is 3 games unbeaten!

Nelsen MoTM for sure. Provided half the offense and generally carried the defense.

Cisse is the only one who looked convincing in attack. He reminded us that he is a scoring machine if we can just devise ways to feed him.

Oh wait a second, we knew that didn't we?

We are truly f*cked with this squad and I think that Harry has already started to realise this. It is so painful having to watch this all unfold. Respect to the fans that made the journey. Ryan Nelsen is already player of the season, how can anyone surpass him now?

green made many excellent saves..i said when it went 2-2 their guy was off, many said bosingwa played them on. but highlights i was have watched just now had their number 14 in front and in the 6 yard box, so interfering. just our luck!
nelsen was very good too. swp continues to let all down.
many expect wigan to be easy but even with a "weak" team, they never roll over

The most disappointing aspect was that having taken the lead we gave it away so quickly, having completely lost our shape! That was very poor. Still I expect it's a situation we are not used to!

Apart from the defensive blunders not too bad performance wise, although outplayed for long periods we did hang in there.

Bosingwa, after getting better in the last match or two was back to his normal self here. SWP still trying, still frustrating us but the best pass Cisse has received this season and the closing down that led to it the probable reason that managers pick him.

Great performance by Nelson and he hit the target! But Green was excellent and mom for me. The big question can he overcome his nerves at Loftus Road?
