Will Wigan be our last resort?

Now it’s time for the heavy math’. As Bolton lost and Wigan only took one point in their home tie game against Portsmouth, we can now see that the "three-team-battle" has become adogfight between five or six teams involved. I do not mind. As long as we stay up. Looking at the fixtures it is Hull who looks to have the easiest schedule left and Wigan the hardest.

Round 35: Liverpool-West Ham, Wigan–Arsenal, Sunderland-Burnley, Birmingham-Hull, Stoke-Bolton, Fulham-Wolves.

We can get something from Anfield, but I do not count with it. Wigan can rock Arsenal after their loss against Tottenham and the title fight. But van Persie will be back and I can’t see Wenger accepting another loss. Sunderland will win against Burnley at home, no doubt and Stoke-Bolton may see Bolton snap a point. The most nervous game here will probably be Birmingham against Hull. A point or three for Hull, against a good, but nowadays seldom sparkling, Birmingham side may well be a good chance for Hull if they have any mental strength to came back after their frightening loss to Burnley.

So this forthcoming round may not be decisive, but it will certainly be able to give us a new agenda. A point against Gerrard & co would do magic. And we may have some points to go on when we'll meet Wigan....

We'll get a point at Anfield - their vision is on their Semi Final in Spain against Torres old team. He might feature for a bit on the Monday but not long, Benetiz knows that 4th place has gone so he won't risk getting hammered in Spain by a team that rested their best players in their last league game to keep him guessing - we might even get all three points.

We have a couple of things going for us the Mickeys and Fulham both feature in Europe, lets hope that plays a good hand for us.

Well, what to say? Wigan won and we are in deep trouble and of course can trust noone but ourselves from now on. Wenger had a rotten day and a rotten keeper. Wigan did pretty well actually and coming from behind to win this game is pretty strong.
