What The Bosses Said - Birmingham 1-0 Latics

Following Wigan Athletics defeat at St. Andrews against Birmingham City yesterday, both managers, Roberto Martinez and Alex McLeish spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'I don't think there was any contact and, if there was, it was not enough for it to be a penalty.

'The referee was only five yards away but at the moment we are not getting the luck with decisions.

'Our player is trying to clear the ball and I would say their player should have been given a yellow card.'

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish:

'The penalty was a bit fortunate because Fahey was running away from goal, but it was a careless tackle.

'Melchiot put his foot in and when you don't get the ball you are always risking it as a defender.

'Keith Fahey is not a guy who goes down easily, so he's been hit. He must have been hit.'

"Fahey is not a guy who goes down easily, so he's been hit. He must have been hit." Sure keep telling yourself that. A lot of players in the PL "Just aren't that sort of player." "Don't have a malicious thought in their pretty heads after training they pick daisies." Makes you wonder who IS that sort of player? (Besides Lucas Neill obvs.)
