What The Bosses Said - Latics 4 Birmingham City 0

What The Bosses Said - Latics 4 Birmingham City 0




A fantastic performance yesterday by the Latics to record their second win of the season with the four goals to nil destruction of Birmingham City, McManaman was untouchable, though the whole team were on top form.

Uwe Rösler must have been ecstatic with his team, whilst counterpart Lee Clark would have been left wondering what hit his side, following the final whistle both bosses spoke to the media, let's take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Uwe Rösler - 'Today was another game in which we continued our progression'

'It started at Charlton, then at Cardiff, Blackpool last week and obviously today we rewarded ourselves with goals.

'We had 17 attempts, eight on target, we controlled the game, had the majority of possession and played attractive football with a lot of goals.

'I think the whole team worked extremely hard and when we dropped our intensity slightly and we had to bring on fresh reinforcements, collectively it was a complete performance.'

'I think there's always ways to improve but today we were very effective, we didn't waste lots of chances like we did against Blackpool and it's always important to get the first and second goal to settle the nerves.'

'We kept on attacking and I think that it is very important that we don't stop and try and keep possession in the wrong areas; the hunger and the appetite for offensive football was there today.'

'We now have a two-week break and as a manager I cross my fingers the players on international duty come back in the same form but the rest of the squad will have some good training days this week and then have a nice weekend next time.'





Birmingham boss Lee Clark - 'Everything's that's been good about us has been flipped on its head today

'The hard-working and powerful team that everyone has been talking about - even Uwe (Rösler) in his pre-match comments was very complimentary - wasn't there.

'The scoreline doesn't flatter Wigan at all, that was the difference between the two teams. It was like chalk and cheese.

'We didn't stick to what we've been doing really well.

'Our decision-making was poor, our defending was poor, our movement and options for the man on the ball was non-existent, and our passes to the strikers weren't there.

'All in all it was a really horrible day for us.'
