    EFL Shaft Wigan but not Sheff Weds

    Who thinks the decision to deduct 12 points of Sheff Weds NEXT season is yet another copping out of making a decision. Wigan lose 12 points as soon as their owner screws everyone, but Sheff weds are under investigation for 2 years and they dont announce the punishment until after this season...

    Which should Pearson miss ?

    My understanding is that BP's booking for the PEn last night is his 9th and so 1 more will be a 2 game ban (I presume). Knowing he wont go the rest of the season without a yellow, WHICH games should he aim to miss? i.e. when can we afford him to get his next card? IF we have passed the amnesty...
