    Odds on Barton starting a brawl?

  2. Daniel says:

    Let’s go Wigan!

    No desire to see QPR back in the Premier League — at least not until they get their finances straightened out.

  3. Brian says:

    This matchup should be a cracker in both legs as both were in the EPL last season and will want to get back in immediately.
