Fergie Strikes Back - Against Bolton!

The press have spent all the week telling us how Wigan must preserve the integrity of the competition by putting up a great fight against United. Not a word about Bolton though.

The Wanderers face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and it looks all but accepted that they will roll over and slump to defeat at the Bridge, to allow Chelsea to overtake the evil forces that is Man United.

'All week, people have questioned the integrity of Wigan. No one has even mentioned Bolton,' said Fergie.

'Both teams are safe, relaxed and confident. But one can celebrate and the other is all keyed up to play against Manchester United. That difference in attitude amazes me.'

He's certainly right: though I accept that Chelsea need the favour from Wigan therefore if the Latics roll over it's game over. If Bolton go down without a fight that will not necessarily mean that Chelsea are champions.

But still I struggle to see why they should be allowed to get away with anything less than 100% commitment. And it seems that nobody cares, as if Chelsea have a divine right to win whereas United have to earn it. It reflects most teams' attitude towards the two teams throughout the season, really.
