Based on one match, as all good grandiose apologies are:


1) You could do far worse than to support Wigan;

2) Aston Villa are indeed at risk for relegation.

(Okay, #2 is (so far) hyperbole, but that was just embarrassing; the embarrassment was tempered only slightly by the fact that Wigan played brilliantly well. Nothing like making the postgame studio analysts use the word "slaughter.")
