Did you know – that new Senegal international Momo Diame played in the last two record defeats for Latics.  A 0-5 home defeat against Manchester United on 22nd August 2009 and the infamous 9-1 defeat against Spurs at White Hart Lane?  As well as those shockers he also played in a 0-6 home defeat against Chelsea this season and an 8-0 tonking against the Pensioners at Stamford Bridge in the last game of last season!
