Wigan Athletic have also missed the presence of Wilson Palacios, this since he departed for Tottenham Hotspur. The Honduran International alongside Valencia, both provided plenty of valuable service to the strikers, and both were key, influencial figures in the midfield. With Palacios now gone though, the amount of quality service to the strike force has dried up. On a different note, how's your first day as moderator been DamnEcuadorian?
