Wigan snatch victory once again.

Imagine where Wigan would be if Roberto Martinez got them playing this well all the time.

Wigan defended better in this game than theyhave all season and Martinez nailed it tactically.

McManaman ran circles round gael clichy

He's defiinily gonna look stupid if the club replace him within weeks if not 48 hours.

Congratulations to Frankie Lampard on becoming Chelsea's highest ever scorer- especially that curler was exquisite!

Also, many congratulations to Wigan on a remarkable victory on the back of an absolutely brilliant performance.

I truly believe we can win and defend the League next year with some good signings in the right areas if Mancini is indeed sacked and Roman pulls a bluff and doesn't actually pay Jose's 17 mill release fee! Don't look at me like that wobbly- it's Roman- he's done weirder things!

So, as we are charitably reminded- now Martinez has more trophies than Moyes. Bless him!

A buy in central midfield is the most important thing this summer, we need a top talent who can dictate a game as well as work hard and support Carrick's deeper work. I agree that it's hard to imagine Rooney moving abroad, Chelsea have become the new favourites to land him.

Don't mean to be disrespect to Gunners but can they can afford his weekly wage? 250K is too much for any club to pay that. If Rooney does go I think it will be Chelsea.

I wish Fergie had stayed a bit longer as I think there would have been some good moves made this summer. With Scholes out maybe this would be the time to get the guy for the future to replace him. Also the chances for Ronaldo coming back would be a lot higher and with him a chance of a last European Cup. Moyes I think will have trouble or at least need a lot more luck to get past the likes of Bayern next year. Oh well wish him a happy retirement especially if there's any truth to him retiring because of stress (bit late for that lol).

I think he can still do a job somewhere but he's probably not worth breaking the bank or Arsenal pay structure for any more. Don't know if Wenger is the man but some manager out there can tame him to at least be a good player if not a world beater throughout the later part of his career.

Keeping Everton in positions between 4th & 7th, when you consider the fact that you have Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, City & Tottenham all pretty much spending freely for the most part is a very good achievement. Realistically, he'd have had to have got very lucky with transfers to even come close to challenging the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal.

The thing is though, what has Moyes ever been expected to win or challenge for seriously at Everton? The league was never realistic, cups are pot luck alot of the time. Whereas Dortmund, Dortmund are expected to be challenging for the Bundesliga against Bayern. It's kinda unfair compairing those 2 instances, it would be like me saying Klopp won nothing in 8 years at Mainz.. I mean realistically he was never going to win anything there anyway.

Klopp isn't an example of a manager that is a born winner, I mean look at them domestically this season or the first 3 seasons he was in charge of Dortmund. He has lost Kagawa, will lose the wonderboy Gotze & Lewondowski in the summer, lets see how much of a born winner he is next season & see if he can rebuild a squad.. or was it a flash in the pan.

I'll give him a chance of course but I've set the bar low for expectations next season.
I'd have preferred Mourinho as well simply because.. he is a winner. He wins everywhere, however even Mourinho has his drawbacks. He hasn't stuck around at a club for more than 3 years in his entire managerial career. He can build a good team there is no question, but can he then rebuild it when it needs to be rebuilt.. ? Also doesn't give youth as much of a chance as Moyes for example will.. or has done with Everton anyway.

Having said all that, I'd still have taken Mourinho & perhaps I'd have my concerns with him proved wrong... but then again the same could be said for Moyes & my concerns with him could be proved wrong. Lets just hope & pray, Sir Alex Ferguson is as good a judge of manager as he is player..

I agree, I think at least one more season for Fergie to sort out a couple of key areas in the team, as you're right, it may be hard for Moyes to get the quality of signing we need as the uncertainty of a Fergieless United will be a concern for any potential targets who have multiple big club options.

No budget? He paid 16M for Fellaini alone, this notion that he made the team by turning dust and bones into flesh & blood players is a myth. He didn't have the budget the top 6 have but he was working with a decent set of players that didn't come for free, no more so than the teams around him. Keeping Everton where he did was solid and consistent work for sure, but hardly the stuff that makes him close to ideal for replacing SAF, in fact I'm certain he was chosen for different reason than his time at Everton.

Actually that's not true, when Klopp came in Dortmund had only just staved off bankruptcy and were in a bad way. He concentrated on youth due to lack of funds and built a title winning team combing mostly homegrown talent mixed in with bargain signings. Last summer they bought their most expensive player ever in Reus, they paid 16M, essentially the money they got from us for Kagawa.

He's won back to back league titles against a team built on 200M at least, the Dortmund team combined barely cost as much as Bayern paid for Javi Martinez alone. What he has done is the equivalent of Moyes winning our league with Everton. By the end of this season he could well be sitting on a haul of 4 trophies in 3 seasons and 6 years at the club with a team built on a small budget and youth development, that's not a flash in the pan, that's a born winner.

The thing is I wonder if Mourinho would still be Chelsea manager now if not for Abramovich, as everywhere Mou has gone since has pretty much felt like a stop-gap until he could get back to the country he loves managing in. He hasn't achieved his CL in Spain goal but he's got the La Liga title to add to his two PL's and Serie A titles, I think if he'd come back to England now to manage United, he'd see it as his settling down for the long haul job. However all we can do is hope Moyes is not a disaster.

Not really arguing with you, since you make some good points regarding the comparison between Klopp and Moyes, but I believe the former has already overseen a rebuilding of Dortmund's squad in the past, when they had internationals such as Alexander Frei, Patrick Owomoyela or Nelson Valdez in the squad. He realised that those guys were getting older and would not take the club forward, so he looked to the club's youth setup and plucked Gotze, Schmelzer and Grosskreutz from there, while also bringing in talented youngsters from abroad for peanuts (Kagawa and Lewandowski, especially, come to mind), not to mention a Bayern reject who has gone on to become world-class, Mats Hummels. I honestly think he has the charisma and spirit to do it again, especially if he can get players such as Dzeko and Christian Eriksen to replace the outgoing Gotze and Lewandowski. Sure, Dortmund are probably in for a rough two or three seasons without the latter two, but I think they'll definitely be back under Klopp's guidance.

Regarding the Klopp vs Moyes debate, I think you made a point earlier that experience-wise, there isn't much difference between the two. And I mostly agree, especially because the only reason I'd have been more optimistic about Klopp's appointment as United boss would've been the more attractive playstyle he favours. But Moyes is already here, so it's a moot point basically.

I'm still hoping Jose will come to United in the future, if and when the Moyes long-term project goes awry. Perhaps when he's more settled and is actually looking for a long-term project, he'll come here to try and emulate SAF. But that's just wishful thinking at this point, and I'm actually really hoping that Moyes does well and manages to bring some quality players over the summer. Speaking of Mourinho, I have a strange suspicion that he actually won't end up at Chelsea and might actually go to PSG in the end. Seeing as Ancellotti has recently claimed that it would be hard to turn down Real Madrid, not to mention Florentino Perez's soft spot for him, I could see Jose and Carlo basically swapping positions this summer. I could be horribly wrong though, so we'll just have to wait and see.

A couple of years ago, I'd agree. But Wenger seems to have lost that midas touch he once had, imo.

Yeah, I don't know if he's the man to turn Rooney around either. Don't think Wenger could penetrate Rooney's skull to get his message across. If Fergie couldn't do it then there's probably very few who could. I think it would more likely be someone British who would have more chance at understanding this unique Gazza-like creature.
