All these people saying Martinez isn't the right man for the job - and I don't direct this specifically at anyone in here, but the general consensus of what I'm reading - then here are a few points about why you're talking out of your arse:
- Martinez is unproven? Well, you have to step up to the plate and be given your chance sometime. You cannot become proven if you're never given the chance. He's young, hungry, and shown he is a very intelligent person and manager. FSG did the identical thing with the Red Sox and it didn't turn out too badly for them.
- We must get X, Y and Z who has done it on the big stage. Why? We're not getting Guardiola, Mourinho or anyone of that caliblre - reality check - and anyone besides a select few have just as much chance of failing.
- Martinez has shown he has a keen eye for young talent, is young himself and is not only very personable, but has got some great football out of a Wigan side that should have been relegated years ago.
- Unlike Roy who many weren't convinced of due to his other failing's and flash-in-the-pan appointment, Martinez hasn't just done well with a team this season, he has consistently done it throughout his short managerial career.
So anyone quick to jump down the young Spaniards throat needs to take a careful look at themselves, and on the official LFC TV forums in particular some of the comments posted are shameful. I wish these people would shut their mouths and if Roberto, who is currently the 11/10 favourite, does get the job then support him 100%, because whether you want him or don't; the only way we are going to succeed is by getting behind whoever is placed at the helm.
