The Secret Diary of Roberto Martinez Pt 2

The Secret Diary of Roberto Martinez Pt 2


It`s been a busy week for Roberto and the boys, let`s see what`s been happening behind closed doors - over to you Roberto:

Monday: I`m in trouble with Mrs Martinez. I promised her I would pick up some potatoes for dinner, but I completely forgot. She isn`t happy, but I told her that I was happy with the intensity and the reaction, but we can learn from this and grow as footballers.

Tuesday: Ronnie is very excited today. He`s been getting very arty these last few weeks, we`ve not seen him for days while he`s been working on his 'masterpiece`. He`s been keeping it in the showers at the Stadium, it`s finally ready today. It`s a life-sized statue of Steven Caldwell, and a very detailed one at that. I`m thinking of playing it at centre back tonight against Aston Villa, it`s probably more mobile. Not sure anyone will notice.

Wednesday: Nobody did notice the statue of Steven. Not even Darren Bent, who was marked out of the game by it. I think we can cancel the search for a new centre back. We might have to put it in storage between games though; Mr Whelan has spent the last hour and a half talking it through the basics of defending set pieces. He used to play football you know, he very rarely mentions it.

Thursday: Bumped into Steve Bruce in Tesco`s today. Funny really, I thought he was more of a Harrods kind of guy. He said he was after a winger; I told him we`ve got one who wants to leave the club for sale and would deal at around £8m. He looked really excited as I gave him the agent`s phone number, not sure how he`ll react when he finds out its Daniel de Ridder instead of Charles N`Zogbia.

Friday: Struggling to decide who to play in goal against Bolton tomorrow. The game clashes with Deal or no Deal and Countdown repeats so Mike won`t want to play, but Chris has to be followed everywhere by a fourteen-strong medical team just in case his back gives in. I wonder if we can get Bolton to show daytime Channel 4 repeats on their big screen, failing that we`ll have to give Chris a zimmer frame and hope for the best.

Classic, I could tell it was the art work on Tuesday, it actually cleared the ball to a Latics player, the real Steve would never do that!

Wigan 1-2 Bradford Match Report

Latics dropped to a deserved 1-2 defeat at the hands of Bradford, our first loss at home in the league since March. It was an off-day, defence looked shaky from the off and once Nick Powell went off injured, we never really threatened to score. We are back at the DW on Tuesday against Doncaster Rovers, an opportunity to get back on track.

Paul Cook named an unchanged side from our last league game, with Michael Jacobs returning to the starting line-up.
