3/9/2008 English Premier League - Can Wigan Bury Arsenal Hopes?

In the English Premier League today, Wigan Athletic will meet Arsenal at their home of the JJB Stadium in a forthcoming live commentary matchup in the world's best league, eager to gather all three points in a difficult game against one of the best teams that Arsene Wenger has ever forged. With the patchy pitch ready to entertain both teams that would have hoped for a better conditioned field, Wigan will hope to be allied with this weapon in their arsenal knowing that the young Gunners are not known to cope well with rough pitches that hinder their preferred game of smooth passing soccer on the ground. Also, with the rough and tumble nature of Wigan's game, they will try to impose the pace and frenetic ping pong soccer that often leaves Arsenal perplexed as they struggle to provide any definite answers in reply to such tactics, despite Arsene Wenger's best efforts in instilling a British nature to the core of his team, which mostly results only in their tackling and running but dealing with teams that refuse to play the ball on the ground can severely hamper Arsenal's effectiveness in any game.

However, with the fantastic win against AC Milan at San Siro under their belts, Arsenal will prepare for this live broadcast English Premier League game against Wigan with much confidence and belief. The belief that they might have turned the corner in their recent bad spell coupled with a terrible injury to their teammate and treasured striker Eduardo has also galvanised the squad with players like Matthieu Flamini voicing his and the team's determination to overcome the odds and win the EPL title for their fallen colleague. While this was followed by a difficult draw at home to Aston Villa, the young Gunners drew even closer together and showed the world just how much potential and promise they had by beating the Italian masters AC Milan at their own game in their own backyard of the San Siro. With the stunning upset of Milan however, the focus and spotlight now falls back on Arsenal and their title tilt, and it is this same scenario which they have not provided the best answer in reply, with regular capitulation in the face of pressure in their domestic league. Will Arsenal be able to put their domestic hoodoo behind against Wigan, or will Wigan capitalise on their soddy pitch to upset the English Premier League leaders - find out in this live radio broadcast commentary of their match at the JJB Stadium.
