Difficult visit to Wigan won’t be a picnic for United

A Wigan Athletic and Premier League debut facing Cristiano Ronaldo in 2008 was tough enough but a club century appearance directly opposing Manchester United’s form player Nani three years later is no easier for Honduran defender Maynor Figueroa. In line to make his landmark mark for Wigan on Saturday, the 27 year old explained how his tough initiation into English football was one of the main factors in him reaching the unique milestone. He will join Paul Scharner, Chris Kirkland and Mario Melchiot in the exclusive club if he features against the league leaders this weekend.

No disrespect to the brave Wolves but WHY?

It’s been said many times. We can all be the greatest managers in the world AFTER the game yet there are still some uncomfortable questions which keeps arising after Manchester United’s defeat at Molineux. Let me make it absolutely clear from the start that nobody has a higher respect for Sir Alex Fergusons judgement than I do. After all, who the hell am I to question his decisions? No doubt, there are times when gambles have to be taken by football managers, some are won, others lost and let’s face it, Sir Alex has come up trumps far more often than not over a long period of time. Even with the benefit of hindsight however, some questions still cannot help but go through my mind.
