Roberto Martinez To Stay At Wigan.. Hey Ho!

Roberto Martinez To Stay At Wigan.. Hey Ho!

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has told Sky Sports that manager Roberto Martinez has re-committed to Wigan and will remain at the DW Stadium next season.

All we know is he met with Liverpool supremos, not whether they offered him the job.

Remember, apart from press talk, we don't know if we even talked to him. I'd guess probably not now to be honest.

So....... NEXT!

No ambition at all...Think he believes the hype Whelan keeps going on about about him, he isn't getting a bigger job than Liverpools at all.

Lambert must be odds on now. I think it's between Lambert, Di Matteo and Poyet....

I was all up for Lambert at the start - I got caught up with the excitement of OGS then had a minor sulk the other day that we maybe hadn't sounded out anyone else but someone on here just posted on another article reports in Norwich say we've permission to talk. Is that backed up anywhere? I think he'd be a great shout. Im annoyed Rodgers will good for Liverpool tho! UTV

Do we just have to have one? Its a long list can't we choose two - and keep one in reserve for the defeatss and negative comments and the other for the victories?

Whelan also told us Martinez had been offered the Liverpool job. Obviously he had not. See no reason to believe him on this either. Not sure we should be chasing after Martinez. He's turned us down once. It needs to be made clear that no-one turns Villa down twice. He had his chance to take over the greatest club in the world and he blew it. ***** him. Move on and look for someone with a little ambition.

Whelan is absolutely loving this, he is a media manipulater to help big up himslef and Wigan for when he sells them, Randy has fallen for the trap if he hoped to get Martinez again this season, I didn't want him anyway as Villa manager as he has not achieved anything of note and less than Steve Bruce and Paul Jewell when they were Wigan managers, lets hope its RDM AVB or Lambert someone like that and i will be very happy UTV!

Oh, and lets all watch this: xD

Lol guys stop crying. He rejected us last year, so well done the board for not approaching him. Why give him the chance of rejecting us again. He wonted the Liverpool job and I actually hope 1 day he gets it. He will fail. Wigan will go down next season also.
