Ben Watson has joined the Latics after a 2m bid was accepted from Crystal Palace for him last week.

He has played numerous games for Palace and has got a good goal scoring eye, too.

The signing of Watson is designed to fill the void left by the recent departure of Latics legend, Wilson Palacios.

Not sure personally if Ben will turn out to be as good as Wilson in the tough tackling mould but only time will tell.

Anyways, I think Watson is a good capture and can only serve to strengthen the Latics midfield.
