There is very, very little chance Megson will get the opportunity - more likely to be engineered spin in order to close Bruce deal quickly .

Why can Bruce turn it around - well he did at Wigan though I admit he did have a few games longer !!!

As for Hughes, I think he's a 'slow burner' - look at his starts at both Rovers and Fulham. QPR have a tough run in, however, home games include Liverpool next who have had a glut of games recently, and other than cup matches and 'derby' matches, are struggling to rise to the occasion, Arsenal - Hughes will make it very pyhsical and they wont like and Spurs, who are wobbling all over. So, don't write them off just yet especially with Cisse & Zamora up front. And, being controversial, I think Yak could have now shot his bolt, all at the wrong time for Rovers !


I really hope He scores to prove you wrong against Sunderland

Mercer, points are points and the yak has got us some vital ones, although to get many more we are pretty reliant on him I suppose
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.



We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Our last 11 points have come without a goal from Yakubu and we have been in some of our best form, though I agree he is our most dangerous player going forward and I've been more confident with him playing this season. Shows he's maybe not as integral as you'd think. Still pretty integral though.

Sheffield Wednesday will go all the way this season just as Southampton did.

They have real momentum and a half decent manager.

He does tend to keep a couple of defenders occupied...

He did a fantastic impression of scoring against QPR then

Oh aye. My apologies.
1 goal in the last 11 points then.

A genuine mistake leads to check mate? I'll have to stick to football then.

Pity that's down to his waistline and not his movement, lol.

I disagree, I think Yakubu has been great the past couple of games even without the goals. His hold up play has been brilliant and he moves the ball on well, also his strength is ridiculous defenders struggle with it constantly!

I am certain we will see some upsets from here till end of season. I can see QPR, even Wolves and Wigan picking up 1-2 shock results.

For me personally, the next two games are crucial. 6 points and we are virtually safe. 4 points especially if 3 comes vs Bolton and its a big step towards safety. Less than 3 points and its a blow. I know people are talking about NOT being beaten by our rivals but we have some tough games coming up so beating our rivals such as Wolves last week will be key in surviving. Can't be passive about it.

QPR will have to, if they only picked up points from matches that look winable they might as well pack up and go home now.

Wigan totally out-played WBA and only got one point today. We got a bit lucky with that one.

Neither Wigan nor QPR having much luck - happens to those teams destined for the drop.

Per the original post, Wigan's next few matches:

Liverpool (Away), Stoke (Home), Chelsea (Away), Manchester United (Home), Arsenal (Away), Fulham (Away), Newcastle (Home), Rovers (Away), Wolves (Home)

And sitting at 22 points, an obviously bleak outlook.

That's what happens when you haven't got a goalscorer. Usually the teams that can't score go down.

Was going to say yesterday that Boltons run in looked the best of the lot down there, but after yesterdays events how much of an adverse effect is that going to play on them from now until the end of the season.
