    And what would he know, useless ex-professional footballer that he is?

    No, I would rather listen a bunch of know-nowts on here, to be honest.

    It might all go horribly wrong eventually, but I’m not about to panic after 4 league games, almost 2 of which were very promising performances (Villa, half a United, and around half an Everton)

    I don’t care what Matt Jackson and the rest of football thinks about Bob as our manager. Opinions are not worth a carrot. Results will determine how good a Wigan boss Bob will be and hopefully for all our sakes he will be a great boss and we will stay up this year. If not he will face the consequences although DW has said he wont sack him!!!!

    But he says alot of things.

    Anyone else think that this meeting could of been a sounding out of him as to whether he wants to return in any capacity?

    Especially with the rumours going around at the moment!

    so is matt jacksons opinion worth more than say -mark lawrenson or gary lineker aor matt le tissier or any of the other so called pundits who regularly say things that you seem to think are anti latics.

    now when some ex footballer gives an opinion that you can use to try and score a point against martinez’s doubters then it must be right.

    no matter what ANY ex pro has to say i saw the displays v st mirren,wolves, man u and everton and read plenty about the display at blackpool,and no matter how you lot try and put a positive spin on things,
    i have never seen poorer and more disjointed displays with the most inept tactics and painfully slow passing and movement in a latics side for many many years,and that is down to one man.

    but what do i know ? i have only been watching football for 45+ years

    The experts know best. We have been relegated and lost every game for the past 4 years. Stoke were relegated last year. Didn’t you know, if an ex pro speaks it’s always correct.

    Ive seen every game so far apart from Blackpool which to me was a reserve fixture. Now at Villa we looked World beaters but we still gave them a few chances. Against St Mirren so so but it was a warm up game. Wolves game was terrible and it knocked us for 6 but i honestly think if we hadnt played these so early it would be a different matter, they knew how to play us and had played bobbys side twice last year. Man utd we looked ok for 59 minutes and it was only when the second goal went in i think we lost our heads and started to look weak. In my opinion we looked decent against everton, yeah it was a struggle but we played against 12 men 11 of whom are considered in the top7 teams in the league and were desperate for a win and still held our own.

    For me the problem is a few things:
    1. We never had a proper pre season. Things were not booked and the manager being brought in took longer than expected.
    2. Bruce, he knew he was leaving in febuary/march time you could see it in his actions. He then whether knowingly or not didnt make plans for this year. For instance he never made bookings for preseason meaning we struggled to find games, he did his old trick of releasing players without having plans in place to replace them, and he had taken team morale to a low.
    3. Bobby took time coming in then insisted bringing in his scouts that had been scouting for a mid table championship team and had players in mind for that.
    4. Whelan let Bruce take everyone behind the scenes.
    5. We let Catts go at the wrong time making it look like every player had a price making the squad nervous.
    6. Rumours are abound in the football world that we are skint and its because the banks have withdrawn/lowered our loan faciltys thats why we are reducing the debt.
    7. The players weve signed speak a variety of languages causing tension in the dressing room and cliques till everyone learns english ( should we make the english players learn spanish?)
    8. On the pitch because of the changes every week we havent had a chance to learn how to play together.
    9. Some players still keep trying the old hoof ball even though the team isnt set up for that.
    10. We havent replaced like for like and the players weve brought in will need time to bed in or are poor.
    11. We are not physically big enough as a side or fast enough.

    However this will change and im sure from the next match we will look stronger.

    And still learned nowt! :)

    You’re right, not all ex-pros know everything. But they have probably forgotten more about football than 99% on this board will ever know about football.

    And yes, you’re in the 99%

    I never once said that Martinez is “God”. He has a lot to learn and we will undoubtedly lose more than we win under this style of play but I, for one, am more than happy to watch this style.

    Everyone has an opinion – me, you, ex-pros, and if all those opinions were the same it would be a fairly dull world. The thing that annoys me about the likes of you and Bobby’swigan is that you appear to think that you are the ONLY people who are allowed to have an opinion and that you’re opinion is to be taken as fact and anyone who disagrees with you is a c0ck.

    Patently not true.

    i have never once in my life said or believed anyone elses opinion does not count and i dont insult people like you either when they have a different outylook from yours,even though you more than deserve it.

    but i will ask you again,please in your opinion,of which i value,tell me what is wrong in what i said ?

    “i have never seen poorer and more disjointed displays with the most inept

    perhaps this time you may answer without fudging or trying to score points

    Why on earth would I try to score points? What does that prove?

    And there cannot be anything “wrong” with your opinion because it is just that, an opinion. How do I know whether it’s right or not? For a start, I don’t know which other “poor and disjointed displays” you were referring to.
