What the bosses Say - Spurs Vs Latics

What the bosses Say - Spurs Vs Latics


Following last nights FA Cup 3rd round tie between Tottenham Hotspur and Wigan Athletic both bosses, Harry Redknapp and Steve Bruce, spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'We made a couple of mistakes so I'm hopeful that we can have a few players back for our next league game against Spurs in 10 days' time and have a go at them then.

'Without Zaki and Heskey we just didn't have enough firepower. The Christmas period has taken its toll and a club like ours can't afford to have four, five out. It's not good for us.

'Unless we have a really substantial offers for Valencia, Zaki and Heskey they won't go anywhere. The last thing we want is to be dismantling the squad we are putting together.

'We are having a really good time in the league at the moment. I'll do my utmost to keep the squad I have in tact.'

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp:

'Roman did well today, took his goals well and worked hard for the team so that was encouraging.

'We played Luka in that central midfield role today for the first time and he showed he was strong enough and certainly good enough to play there, he was terrific.'


There you have it, my Wembley dream gone for another year

Gary Caldwell's Blackpool Reflections

A very proud Gary Caldwell spoke to the media after the game, let's take a look at what he had to say:

Dan's Big Game Report - Blackpool 0 Latics 4


As you read this message in the year 2036, much of Blackpool vs. Wigan '16 has passed into the annals of Latics lore. Scarcely has a single game of kickball received quite as much build-up - from the minute this fixture was announced to the moment match ref Stuart Attwell finally tootled on his tin whistle, talk of Bloomfield Road on 30 April was incessant.

And I expect it's been much the same since, with (admittedly failed) film scripts written and (admittedly shoddy) statues
