We could post 10 pages of whether there's anything to be said that's not already been said I guess. :shrug:

From my perspective, the most disappointing thing about his time in charge is that I could never remember how to type an umlaut.

A great gig for him in this moment in time. Location was definitely the clincher. I really doubt he was on the blower to Dave Whelan straight away, he has always seemed very attached to the job in hand here.
My main concern would be whether or not Wigan have had their moment in the sun. The Championship is a tough division where often the best of sides fade away. If Uwe can get them going, he could do great great things there but it will be incredibly tough.
I wish him all the best though

Can understand why he went with his family based up in the NW. However, he often praised MB for giving him a chance to manage when no-one else would. Empty words. MB deserved better.

Gutted he left but fully understand the reasons why. Don't see him and Whelan as a fit though but I'm sure Uwe knew all about him before taking the job.

Another thread for abusing Rosler - great. Here goes;
Thanks for taking the shine of the good news with the stadium.
I hope the commute to Bury next year isn't too far for you.

He won't last long if he can not get them up. Whelan is not as Patient as the guys we have running the club. You only have to look and see how long Coyne lasted.

I thought he looked resigned about taking the Wigan job. I watched through his press conference and whilst telling the journalists about all the positives of the club, it sounded like he was trying to convince himself at the same time. I hope he does very well there, but I have a feeling this is a poison chalice.

Thought he might have said a few positive words about his time with us and some kind of message to the supporters but maybe I am being too old fashioned?

Tough job I'd say as Wigan have a lot of competition to get to the PL.

He was very complementary about us, just seemed a little like a rabbit caught int he headlights with the press up there.

Yep a tough gig and feel he has taken step upwards a season and a half too soon. If he had taken us up then he would be on championship and secure of position. Whelan is looking for next Martinez but such managers are rare - look at what he has already achieved at Everton in making them a better side than under Moyes. Whelan is seeing Rosler as a manager who likes his teams to play passing foot all and win games but it always felt with Uwe that he was still learning his trade and whilst he learnt quickly from his mistakes am not sure he would get such leeway at Wigan.

equally if he had stayed and we had failed to get promotion he could (probably would) have been sacked and out in the football wilderness. at least with wigan he'll get a bigger pay off if it goes tits up this year :sorted:

I wish him well. No doubting his technical knowledge but he has left an incredibly supportive infrastructure behind and although Wigan are ex Prem, I wonder if it will be the same. Not sure if they have a sporting director type in situ. If not, that will be a difficult scenario for him. I'm sure the family thing was the clincher-that type of thing is very difficult and he didn't relocate probably due to family pressures too. Tough one for Uwe.

I hope we get promoted this season and if we do I'd be happy to see Uwe take Wigan up as well. If we fail I won't feel so charitable towards him and more inclined to hope they drop down.

Can't blame him for taking the opportunity - I don't know when a manager last left us of his own volition to take up a job at a higher division club. He even gets experience in Europe, even if only for one game

I reckon it was a crucial part of negotiations, Whelan told him last idiot wanted to spend millions in Jan and I dinzmt want to. Can you get us up without spending ridiculous amounts?

Maybe Whelan believed him when he said he had a mid table budget with us.

The miracles that Uwe performed at little Brentford was always going to catch the eye, Whelan is a shrewd dude.

Let's not forget that Warburton was apparently behind most of Uwe's signings...

I think Rosler will find it tough without Warburton. I honestly think we have come out of this merrygoround very well indeed.
I think Uwe obviously has the short-term benefit of closer to home, higher wages etc but not convinced about him succeeding.

Evolution on the outside, revolution on the inside as apinae's advert said

I wish him luck apart from when Wigan play us next season.

If, as it seems, the location near family was key I can't really begrudge him the move.

P.S. He needs to stop calling them a huge club though lol

Rosler is on a winner already tonight
Wigan have to rely on other results to go through, not Rosler's fault
Maribor are a poor outfit and Wigan should put up a decent display - either a 2-2 draw or a narrow away win

Wigan are without McCarthy and Holt, but even with that, the players should be out to impress their new boss and will do the 20 Wigan travelling fans proud I am sure

I know that it's been said by the Bees site that Uwe was the first of our managers to be 'poached', but wasn't that also the case with Jimmy Sirrel? I think they were in our division (4th) at the time though.

First to move up a division. :sorted:

Sirrell left to go to Notts County in the same division as the Bees and then proceeded to take them up to the divisions.

NB will add MA though, as we got a small compensation fee for him, but that was at the end of the season. ;)

Billy Gray was poached by Jack Dunnett (not RIP hopefully) when he took over Notts County; then he sacked him and poached Jimmy Sirrell, who had replaced Gray, having previously been the trainer. We were in Div 3 at the time, the same as Notts Co., as stated above.

In 64-65 we lost Malcolm MacDonald to Kilmarnock who were a top Scottish side then. I believe they had won the Scottish title in the previous season. OK not a loss to an English club but definitely to a better team/club in those days. BTW I believe MacDonald's departure probably cost us promotion .
