Wigan 1-1 Liverpool Highlights

Mido scored a late penalty on his Wigan debut to further dent Liverpool’s Premier League title ambitions.

The Egypt striker struck the ball past Pepe Reina after Lucas Leiva had clumsily brought down Jason Koumas.

Yossi Benayoun had brilliantly put Liverpool ahead from a tight angle, while Fernando Torres hit the post.

Second Half Highlights


But Emmerson Boyce headed wide for Wigan and Hugo Rodallega struck the Liverpool crossbar late on as Rafael Benitez’s Reds slipped to third.

The result was rich reward for Wigan manager Steve Bruce’s willingness to chase the game after the break.

He brought on Koumas and Ecuador striker Hugo Rodallega – and saw his team score the goal that prevented the Latics slipping to a third straight Premier League defeat.

    well its not our players fault, if benitez always takes torres off last 15 minutes as always, that is when weve conceded placing kuyt up front on his own and getting someone like ***ing lucas leiva to play as an extra midfield , he is a disgrace pisses me off, send him off to brazil

    I meant Raphael not Reina. Also have a look at our games against Newcastle and Everton before you open your loudmouth again

    For all you loosers, Manchester United is the best team in the world. SAF is the greatest yet most succesful managers on hte football scene that you will ever see in your life. Scousers are a bunch of retarded morons. The only thing in Liverpool that gived you hope is Gerrard. if he gets injured you wouldn’t win a game. Late goals after all still counts as goals that’s why you have 90 minutes. Just remember those who say we rely on late goals; against Chelsea we were up and conceeded a late equaliser 83′. at anfield we were leading as well and you got 2 late goals. Anyway, Van der Sar is by far better than Reina. the back 4 is solid as a rock, with arguably the best centre backs in EPL, the most experienced Right back Neville and Definetly the best Left back in the world Patrice Evra. in Midfield we have Maestros with Scholes, Carrick, Giggs, Anderson. Wingers are also better than yours Nani and Ronaldo. as for the Attackers, our number of goals scored in EPL speaks for itself.
    In Conclusion SHUUUUUT UP. Reina starts realising now where he belongs on the table. Scousers will end up 4th as usual. Cheers

    As an Everton fan I was actually cheering for Liverpool to win the whole thing cause I am sick of crybaby SAF and United winning.  Still plenty of time after Everton beats United in a few days!!!

    If you are wondering why Liverpool are conciding late goals than here is your answer: they play well during the whole game except for the last 15 minutes or so because they become exhausted , so  their concentration becomes less and they make more defensive mistakes leading to late goals . I’ve noticed that in the past few games Liverpool have played. So don’t complain about conciding late goals because this happens in football.
    On the other hand , MANUTD players don’t get tired at the ends of matches and stay fully concentrated through-out the whole 90 mins. Even when they are unlucky at times and can’t get an early goal , they never give up and keep the pressure on till they eventually get a goal even if it comes late.Personally I think late goals are the reason football is so exciting and why everybody is crazy about this sport. Without late goals , football matches would be seriously boring just like your comments.

    Looserpools are complete chuckers in second half of the season. Lol. Man UTD in two or three matches have scored late goals. But they were dominating the whole game and were unlucky to scope goals early. Looserpool are going to get defeated against real madrid also. And epl is a distant dream altogether lol.

  9. Gael Adam says:

    You know Laza why liverpool concedes late goals?!coz they aren’t concentrated enough and lack the physique of champions compared to what United have. You might have to wait a couple more years to see your team champions mate

  10. laza says:

    You realise that liverpool concedes late goals, while man u apart from west brom game score late goals and say there the best while WE have been screwed 3 of the past 5 games with a last minute goal for a draw , as man u have had a last minute goal or only 1 goal to win.
