We didn't even approach Martinez or your club robin you ******** idiot! All he has done is keep Wigan up season after season, if he doesn't leave it's gonna be the same year after year for him...Deluded to not go to Liverpool (if he actually was offered the job, Rodgers is better).

Temper temper P.Avfc! It was common knowledge Bob was on a shortlist with Lambert and A.N.Other. Yep, he's kept us up season after season - Little Wigan, with minimal funds and one of the lowest gates in the Premier League. He's also turned us into one of the more attractive football clubs to watch, sorted our wage bill out and reorganised our youth system. The man is a Wigan legend - Liverpool's (and your) loss (2nd year running).

There was no approach made AT ALL fourthamigo!!!!! I respect him for being loyal to Wigan, but not gonna have anyone saying he turned us down when there is no proof we even wanted him...the only two clear names been highlighted so far are OGS and Lambert. And b_chiller he is not going to get any other job bigger than Liverpools, thats my opinion and yes he has done great with Wigan but theres only so much he can do with a team who has barely any fans attending, not asif you can throw money at your team like Villa or Liverpool to get up the table.

Oh and Pete Colley who works for Sky Sports has said on his twitter than Martinez WAS interested in the Villa job but our target is and always has been Lambert so no approach made.

Not a problem with Martinez or Wigan anyone, wish you both success next year, hope you can stay up again or avoid the relegation battle all together. I no for a fact we will! We will splash the cash and get out of there, Martinez staying is all but good for Wigan though, just a bit weird how he can turn down such a big job in Liverpool.
