Even without the goal I would have given it to JT today - probably his best performance for us in a season and a half.

Running him very close was Lampard (and if I could award a joint MOTM I would have done) and I also think a lot of credit goes to Mancienne and Cech who I thought had fine games although Cech could maybe have done better with the equaliser.

On the flip side I thought Ballack and Anelka were very poor today and were key reasons why we never extended our 1-0 lead and killed the game before they got back into it. Thank you Frank!!!

JT or Frank Lampard, Frank Lampard or JT? Frank was our best player by for most of the second half and of course popped up for the last gasp winner .. JT on the other hand, cleared off the line, scored a wonderful milestone goal, even popped up on the wing! Has to be JT.

Agreed. Even before he scored I thought JT had been particularly solid.

I didn't think much of Mikel or Alex today, either...

Would that be Alex the Brazilian, or Frank's long lost brother Alex?

Who voted for Anelka O__o

I did, thought his control was superb in parts and think those that doubted him and Drogba could not play together are mad.

Lampard great game, Alex great game, Drogba getting back to Drogba and JT outstanding.

Fair enough. I thought he was good when he actually appeared, which wasn't too often, as he went missing for long periods at a time. Drogba was a tank though.

That to the letter.

Anelka is a complete waste on the wing. He did f**k all today and I am not that sure thats entirely his fault. He is not a winger and will never be - he is a world-class finisher and the only moments he shone were when in the penalty area. Play him upfront, or don't play him at all.

Titus Bramble. Without him we would have had a couple more. Seriously, though, Terry. He was everywhere. His tackles were precise. His volley was wonderful. Just massive all around.

Lampard was tremendous, too, obviously. This would have been his if he would have put away one of his other chances. Fortunately, he put one away when it mattered most!

thought it was a tired and flat performance from the side- thought everyone aside from jt and lamps was a 6 or a 7- no horrible performances, but certainly not many great ones. wigan good- high workrate and pressing made it difficult.

lovely to see mancienne start and play alright, and to see some real hard work from anelka and drogba.

I went with JT. Overall we we very lacklustre. We only raised our game in the first half after a couple of mistakes and then again after their equaliser. Mancienne did OK, a bit nervous at times and N'Zogbia gave him the run around in the second half, but not a bad effort. In the end though we rather got away with it as Wigan played very well and probably deserved a point.

JT for me and good to see him getting back to his best, Lampard continues his good form and good to see Mancienne doesn't look overawed in the Prem.

Ballack back down a level from his better game last time, Anelka was a bit of a waste of space for long periods and if he is going to keep being played out wide I'd sooner give one of the wingers a chance and alternate Drogba and Anelka in different situations.

again the performance was not good enough although we got away with it.

JT just for that scissor kick goal, can you think of a better goal scored by a center back ?

Frank is without doubt our player of the season, yes I know its only March 1st, but he has been the most consitent player at the club this season.

Feel sorry for Nico, top scorer in the league, gets pushed out to the wing by both Scolari and Guus then gets slated by the fans for poor performances.

Mancienne, what a cool kid, can we nickname him poker face ?

Well that gives a very considered assessment! Why not wait until you've at least seen the highlights?

Haha, I watched the highlights, but they didn't really show who played well and who didn't, to get an idea of MOTM you really need to watch the full 90 minutes. It seems 18 people agree with me anyway :D
