After more than 20 years in football, Wigan goalkeeper Mike Pollitt has admitted letting in eight against Chelsea was a new experience.The 38-year-old was the keeper to suffer five months after Chris Kirkland let in nine at Spurs. [LNB]He told BBC Radio Manchester: "I don't think I've ever conceded eight before. [LNB]"Not even in Bolton Boys' Federation, I don't think I have conceded eight, not even at school. Especially not in professional football, that's certain." [LNB]He added: "It's never nice, but it was just one of those days. Everything they seemed to hit went in and everybody said I had no chance with the goals. [LNB]"I'm looking back and trying to think , well, could I have done better with any of them but you just think not really. [LNB]"I made a couple of saves and it still fell straight to their feet and they're tapping them in so it was frustrating but it was still nice to play in the game. [LNB]"It's not nice going into the summer now with that hanging over you but you've just got to try and forget about it and put it behind you and have a good break and come back refreshed. [LNB]"I've not really spoken to the gaffer but there's something there on the table, in whatever capacity I don't know. So we'll see, but it's more than likely I'll be back at Wigan next year."
