Vital Latics member Seb Ginger gives us his view on the new boss:
Carrying On From Old Beginnings - Uwe Rosler and Wigan Athletic
It's hard to believe that only 7 months ago, Wigan Athletic were on top of the footballing world, FA Cup in hand, standing proud, whilst others lay in awe of the feat that such a small club had achieved. Fast forward to the present day, and there is quite a different atmosphere at the DW Stadium. The bitter cold weather epitomising the current state of affairs that seem to be shrouding the club at present. The appointment of Owen Coyle shortly after the departure of town Messiah Roberto Martinez left doubts in the minds of many Wigan fans, these doubts proved all too accurate, as only 6 months after the appointment, Owen Coyle was packing his bags and leaving Wigan Athletic for good.
Many wondered, and many still do wonder, how Wigan Athletic will ever escape the lingering emptiness of a certain Spaniard that graced the cobbled paving of Wigan town once upon a time. Although Martinez had his fair share of doubters, he strode onwards leading Wigan to majestic and memorable wins over Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and the rest, culminating in that famous day at Wembley that will go down in Wigan folklore. The day everyone can say, 'I was there'.
The Light shone no more over Wigan, the team without a leader, a hero.
This stayed that way until on a frosty Monday afternoon, an unfamiliar figure strode into the Wigan Athletic press room, a man with poise, presence and a sharp sense of style. He sat down, and in a stark German accent, told those in the room how he wanted to change things. He got up and left, briefly posing for photographs outside on the seats of the DW, before being whisked away by the powers that be.
This man reminded me of someone I'd adored. This man, whilst remaining humble with no real expression, had a glint in his eye. A glint in his eye that thrust me into months gone by, this man can lead Wigan Athletic to past glories, and he will.
Welcome, Uwe Rosler, to Wigan Athletic Football Club.
There's a new boss in town
