What The Bosses Said - Latics 0-3 Spurs

What The Bosses Said - Latics 0-3 Spurs

Following the Wigan Athletic loss to Tottenham Hotspur both bosses and Latics 'keeper Chris Kirkland spoke to the press about a certain goal, a tackle and a couple of other incidents, what was all the fuss about, well lets find out:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'I am left with a huge feeling of frustration. We had to climb a mountain after conceding that first goal, which was a terrible decision from the linesman as it was clearly offside.

'I cannot explain it, there was no-one in the linesman's vision and it is hard to understand how it went against us. It was a key moment in the game.

'I felt a few decision went against us. Jermain Defoe was fortunate to stay on the pitch after a couple of incidents.

'I think from small decisions to big decisions, the referee made the game impossible for us.'

Latics 'keeper Chris Kirkland:

'It is not even close. How he (the assistant referee) has not seen it, is hard to believe. It is two yards off.

'But these things happen in football. We have got to pick ourselves up and go again.

'We didn't play too well in the first half but if that effort is offside it may have been 0-0 at the break. It is bemusing.

'That is why you get frustrated. But now we have to concentrate on Birmingham now as we have 12 big games left.'

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp:

'Pavlyuchenko's trained well this week. He's worked hard and showed a great attitude.

'I've always said he has got great ability. When he wants to work and give everything, he's a top quality player.

'I felt we dominated play and were the better team today.'

Poor decision

agreed, but I dont think you can claim you deserved to win the game. The refereeing was awful though. In the end the decisions affected you more but they were making the wrong calls all over the place. Your lot should have had two more corners, he missed about 4 obvious fouls on spurs players: the list goes on. How defoe didnt get a yellow for that tackle ill never know, I guess he didnt see it?!

Martinez stop finding excuses for yourself, you have a squad which deserved to be in the middle table but you dragged them down with your poor technique.
