Have to look at this as two points dropped sadly, we had the chances.

In the larger scheme of things, it's not all doom and gloom. It's another point on the board. Arsenal drew at home. Another clean sheet. Unbeaten in twelve. Ash will be back now, which will make us more dangerous! the future's bright...

Well that's two fingers up to anyone who says we are lucky. FRUSTRATED is the word. I swear the one was over the line. Wigan got what they came for. A point. They were time wasting from the 1st minute. How was there only 1 minute of stoppages at the end of first half and 3 at the end of 2nd? DISGRACEFUL. Styles is a disgrace. Wigan are time wasting cheating (I'm trying to think of a word that wont get asterixed but I can't). THe FA should have a look at Wigan's time wasting tactics. When the guy went down in his own box expecting us to kick the ball out and then jumped to his feet when he realised his team mates had the ball would be laughable if it wasn't so wrong. This is NOT football it is CHEATING. Angry and frustrated. Glad to see JC back and proud of the way we battled but angry at Potato Heads tactics.

Slightly different to our stats on Vital Latics!!? As for time wasting, which Prem sides dont? I have seen Villa players take their time with trow ins etc when they are winning or trying to hold on to a point, as for Styles that was never a back pass that Kirkie got penalised for

Yeah we time waste at the end when we are winning not from word go. The worst was the Wigan player pretending to be injured in his own box and then leaping to his feet and bursting into a sprint when he realised Wigan had the ball. Disgraceful behaviour.

I'm as frustrated as the next guy, but it does us no credit to whinge after a result like this. There were a lot of positives - we played well for one - and we have to accept, the better our team gets, teams will increasingly come to VP for a draw. We have to take that as a back-handed compliment and find a way to break them down. As long as we are creating chances, on another day a shed load will go in ...
