    In all sincerity, why well done Roberto?

    I’m sure any manager we could have would go for this. If anybody deserves praise, it’s actually PAUL JEWELL, as it was he who put the wheels in motion and basically made the first changes and suggested the need for change, a few years ago.

    I agree with you though, it’s a great thing for Latics.

    It was the main stipulation for him signing a new contract that Whelan would invest in a new training ground and academy!

    Whatever anyone can say about Roberto he has this clubs best interests at heart.

    And for that I will always be grateful.

    Jewell & Bruce were nothing but disrespectful in their post latics comments which severely tarnished my memory of Jewell’s time here although I will always appreciate what he did for us.

    Dave, not really sure how much credit Jewell can take for this, apart from recognising that things needed to change which, to be fair, my mother could have spotted.

    And, at risk of diluting my apparent love-in with Roberto and hios arse-cheeks, I think as much if not more credit needs to go to Dave Whelan and the board and particularly the two Jacksons for actually making it happen. One of whom had to work this aorund writing the foreword for my book. Sterling effort, all round.

    Actually, scratch that, what am I thinking? Apparently, as this forum’s intelligentsia are always happy to tell us, the club has made ZERO investment and progress over the last few years so this can’t really have happened.

    Fair comment. I had forgot about him stipulating it as a condition.

    Can’t recall Jewell slagging us off after he left. Was he not too busy trying to save his marriage after his ‘home video’ shennanigins? :lol:

    So, in the future when there’s an 11 aside friendly match to organise, do you think there might be an indoor pitch available?

    Incidentally: no hydro therapy/swimming pool? Bloody rubbish Wigan.

    All joking apart, the news that the first tema is moving to a completely new training ground was news to me (I think). On the assumption that it won’t be in someone’s back garden that’s been donated for nowt, there’s another chunk of money that won’t be available for new players.

    Bloody rubbish indeed, Wigan!

    How can good news about the clubs long-term infrastructure turn into such infighting? Some people need to seriously get a grip!

    And there it is, the first predictable negative comment.

    To be fair, I thought the same myself. :) Hopefully, it won’t come to pass

    But if we do go down and dont have the bright lights of the premier league to offer foreign players as a form of putting themself in a shop window we can at least have some homegrown talent to produce and probably sell on.

    Thinking about it, I recall about a year ago Roberto and DW going to view Stoke City’s training ground, as it is one of the best around.

    Best set up I’ve ever seen is at Ajax Amsterdam. There’s a really big complex next to their stadium which caters for all ages from small kids, right up to the first team. Superb facilities, indoor ‘dome’ and all weather ‘grass like’ pitches.

    You may or may not be aware that recently Latics have actually trained in SKEM! Straight up. On the new 3G pitch complex set up at Sandy Lane. There are a few different clubs coming to train on it, actually.

    As STANDISH pointed out in his original post, it can only be a GOOD thing for Wigan Athletic. Gone are the days of us bringing in international players and them doing one (Pasquale Bruno) as soon as they get here because we look like a tin pot club.

    Having digested the possibilities, I am truly excited about this positive development.
