'If It's Football, It's Vital'

What The Boss Said - Latics 0-6 Chelsea


Following another battering, this time from Chelsea, Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez spoke to the press about his job and the Chelsea game, lets see what he had to say for himself:

'The chairman is a passionate man, he loves football and he wants the best for Wigan Athletic.

'He knows the situation we're in and he couldn't be any more supportive.

'I need to worry about how to get the team to perform for 90 minutes, because it's a young side that is capable of the best and we have to build on that - that is my focus and concentration.

'I've huge belief in this group of players. I know we're going to get the results from the potential we showed in the first half.

'We're working towards the aim of staying in the Premier League and that's the focus.'


'I'm feeling low for the players because they didn't deserve that'

'Today was a big day for us because we needed a response after what happened on Saturday, and we had that in the first half.

'I was as proud as I can be of the efforts of the players and the way we played.

'But in the second half we need to learn not to be that naive and when the third goal went in, in a way we accepted the game was finished."

It looks like a long hard season for you wigan fans... spurs were at the bottom of the PL 2 years ago, we understand how you are feeling, but in PL football there is no mercy for the weaker teams.. You can expect a very tough game at WHL.

Wigan might pull off a shock. Not beyond the bounds of reason but I doubt it.

Fitness levels seem to be an issue, faded badly in the second half, although, getting battered saps your energy I suppose!

I see Kirkland's family have voted in the MOTM vote. Either that or nine people have forgotten to take their medication.

wigan have went from trying to get into europe to trying just to stay in premiership after 2 games according to martinez comments.when is he going to waken up to kirkland,having a poor defence is bad enough but having a hopeless keeper behind them is even worse.figeroa hasnt played a decent game since his head was in the clouds in january when bruce wanted him.

Kirkland is a Joke, and the defence in front of him isn't far behind him.
