    Don’t forget the premier league clubs got a far bigger payout last season and with the parachute money they are receiving it looks like the likes of Cardiff and Norwich could well dominate this division this year.
    Cardiff have a squad packed full of quality that quite frankly we can’t match and this already is looking like a season of transition rather than a promotion one and a steady decline seems to have started.
    this policy of running the club as if the parachute money has already disappeared just isn’t working in my opinion and unless some decent investment is made in the team then more results like this will follow.

    Forget “Bottom 4 Bob”, it’s “Bottom 4 Ros” at the moment. :unsure:

    Does anyone really expect us to score many goals playing with such a negative 541 formation.
    It’s dire now, it was dire for most of last season and even more dire for 4 seasons before that.
    An unfit overweight Grant Holt up front on his own would at least pose a threat from crosses. Put Waghorn next to him supported by attacking midfield, and we might have a chance.
    Fortune has had enough chances now, get shut, he’s shite.

    Yeah the 4-4-2 is obsolete now just ask Forest who beat Bournemouth ( Were top having won their first games ) away by playing dare I say it 4-4-2 with each of the 2 lads upfront helping themselves to a goal apiece ! I do believe that Charlton overcame Derby by 3 goals to 2 by playing, yep you guessed it 4-4-2 with the 2 lads up front helping themselves to a goal apiece! Cardiff actually adopted a 4-4-2 tonight with one of the 2 lads up front……Oh fuck it, you know what I am going to say!

    And don’t forget, Leicester (Vardy & Nugent)and Burnley (Ings and Vokes) were both promoted playing 442 last season.
    But like they all say, 442 is obsolete and doesn’t work in the modern game. BOLLOX.

    I’ve not seen the game nor did I listen to it but Uwe’s comments are that we dominated:

    Wigan boss Uwe Rosler:
    “You think there will be more teams who dominate here like today? I don’t think so.
    “We were dominant for 90 minutes apart from putting the ball in the net. Cardiff were passive and I thought we were very good apart from the final third.
    “We have players who are very good, but I think we need more pace and more Championship experience up front.
    “I know the market is more or less destroyed in the Championship and the Premier League but that is what we will try to get.”

    Looking at the stats we had more possession, shots and corners but we only put 1 of our 12 shots on target. Simply not good enough when you have firepower as weak as ours.

    “Simply not good enough when you have firepower as weak as ours.”

    An admittance or a plea to the man upstairs? I think we should be concerned here having lost both Gomez and Powell who were our joint leading goal scorers last season albeit with just 7 goals apiece!
