Martinez Is The Premier Leagues Premier Motivator


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is a motivator extraordinaire according to Gabriele Marcotti of the Times following a little research by the Italian journalist into how teams perform at the start of each half.

Using a formula based around a sides overall goal difference and goal differences during the first 15 minutes of each half, calling this a swing, Marcotti concludes that there is evidence to suggest which Premier League managers are the better motivators.

All very complicated for my simple mind but I do like his conclusion for sitting right up at the top of motivators is our very own Roberto Martinez who according to Marcotti`s findings is in the top echelons of both the pre-match team talk and half time rally talk.

With a +27 swing at the beginning of a game and a +15 swing at the start of the second half Martinez` words ring clear in the heads of the Latics players, just the bits in between we need to sort out now.

Just wait for the RM haters to make something negative out of this. I'm putting my bets on 'spurs' 'Bruce' and '4-4-2' being in there somewhere.
