Ex-Managers Are Like Ex-Lovers
Wigan Athletics love affair with Paul Jewell ended last May, not acrimoniously, but the fact remains it still ended and we need to move on
The club found it hard to let go at the time, just like a love sick teenager that had been jilted, so we went for the next best thing Chris Hutchings
That was like being dumped by your long-standing girlfriend one minute and dating her sister the next, it is never going to work out and will surely end in tears, and it did
Why do it?
Familiarity, continuity, more of the same you hope?
All the wrong reasons, when you have been in a long term relationship you need a change, something a bit different.
Paul Jewell is available again and what do the club do?
Get all excited, dump his 'sister` and ask him out for a date
Now going back with the ex is not recommended
For a start you have been a part for a while and therefore changed, so neither of you will be getting back what you expect to get
There will be a certain amount of mistrust; they have walked out on you once before, what will stop it from happening again?
What about the things that were said, the hurtful things like, 'he`s off his head` or 'we`ve gone as far as we can together`, will they be able to be forgotten?
And the most important aspect, they will think they can do what they like and walk all over you because you are desperate to take them back
Now I have never had an ex back but I know people who have and it never worked so I would say to Dave Whelan, leave well alone, you tried his sister it didn`t work, lets have something a bit different even exotic, but lets make it exciting and get some money spent on them
