With the Annualis Horribalis that is October out of the way thoughts now turn to the five games in November
Latics should have been entering November full of optimism but a run of four straight defeats in which only one (Liverpool)could be considered an unlucky result sees us approaching the new month with trepidation.
Yet a look at the fixtures for this month sees us with three home gamea agaisnt Everton who aren’t breaking any pots this season and Stoke and WBA who are expected to be in the lower reaches of the league come May time.
Add away matches at financially troubled Portsmouth and ‘for sale’ Newcastle and a Latics firing on all cylinders should be confident of a decent haul.
With a tricky December ahead November could well turn out to be a pivotal month which defines our season. A good points haul and we can kick on for midtable. A poor haul espicially with three of the five teams around us currently and we would be playing catch up and may not make it.
Lets hope starting on Saturday whatever the problems there are within the team are ironed out and three points will be secured
