Marcelo Moreno Martins Joins the Latics


Wigan Athletic have announced the signing of Bolivia international striker Marcelo Moreno Martins on a six month loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 22 year old comes to the Latics with a good reputation and manager Roberto Martinez is absolutely delighted to have added quality to the squad, Martinez told the official website: 'We knew we needed more competition in the forward area, and now we have Victor Moses and Marcelo Moreno'

'Shakhtar paid 9 million Euros for him 18 months ago, which shows you how highly he is regarded, and he has all the ingredients to become a big player in this country.

'He still needs to find his feet in Europe, and we are confident that this will be at Wigan. Let's see what happens over the next few months but he certainly fits the bill for what we are looking for at Wigan Athletic.

'He is young, a superb athlete, good in the air, technically good with both feet and he will add something new to the squad.

'Hopefully he can adapt quickly to the demands of the Premier League and become a real quality addition to the Wigan Athletic squad.'

I'm so glad Martinez has come through with the goods on this transfer window....it has the potential to reshape our season from here. We have kept all our key players, extended Figueroa's contract and strengthened in all areas with new blood. Looks like we can really do some damage now. I always felt Martinez knew best where we needed strengthening, and it's come through....now I just want to see them all bag endless goals!

Im a united fan but I'm quite excited to see this guy. We were linked with him before he went to Shaktar, so it'll be interesting to see how he does. Victor Moses is also another player with great potential.

Meet The Ref - Blackburn Rovers v Latics - Jeremy Simpson

The man charged with making sure that both teams adhere to the rules of the game is Carnforth's finest, Jeremy Simpson.

The action(?) from yesterday's game at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest which ended goalless:

Report - Latics 0 Forest 0 - What A Shocker

Thirteen games to save our Championship status, first up a home game against Nottingham Forest who are on a shocking run of form, conceded 10 goals in their last three matches, three of their first choice defenders missing through injury, they had lost 11 of their 16 away games this season with a -16 goal difference on the road and sat just six points above us in the table, surely a game that we would set out to win.

Checking the team selection I felt slightly optimistic but slightly conf
