1. Why would you ever want to leave Wigan Athletic?
2. Why would you ever consider managing Liverpool?
To say that Roberto Martinez is a Latics Legend is as big an understatement as when T.Rex said 'oh look a shooting star'. Martinez is in the very fabric of the club, it's his home, both physically and spiritually, he belongs at Wigan, the supporters love him, the players love him, the staff at the DW Stadium love him, he is given the freedom and time to work his way, he is under very limited pressure to produce and when things do get tough the whole support get firmly behind and help carry him through
After three seasons it also would appear that the plans that he has put in place are starting to bear fruit. Latics are flying on the pitch, the side is balanced and everyone associated with the club are looking forward to the new season, a great moment to be boss of Wigan Athletic
In contrast up the East Lancashire Road at Anfield, Liverpool are a club in turmoil. A once massive club looking very much to be a club on the decline, supporters who live so far in the past they name their kids either John, Paul, George or if its a girl Ringo
A club who this season took great pride and pleasure in declaring that 'they are back' because they won a cup that was won the previous season by Birmingham City!
A club whose fans are organising protests to tell the board at Anfield not to appoint one of the games most highly regarded up and coming managers and seem to believe they can tempt JosÚ Mourinho away from Real Madrid, a club who have a high profile newspaper journalist fan that likens Martinez to Susan Boyle with Dalglish in his opinion Cameron Diaz, a quick message for Brian Reade of the Daily Mirror, go and look up the word 'deluded' and the phrase 'not a clue'.
Martinez would be given no time at Anfield, they would ruin him, they don't deserve him. Stay put Bobby, stay where you are loved, stay where the feeling is warm and keep working the challenge at the Latics, keep making us believe and get us that European spot that you promised
