Sky Sports News has broken the news that Uwe Rosler has left Brentford to join Wigan Athletic. It was thought that the announcement wouldn’t be made until Monday, however, it would appear that Rosler has agreed personal terms with Latics’ owner Dave Whelan and he will be at the New Den this afternoon rather than in Carlisle.

On behalf of Brentford fans Beesotted would like wish Uwe every success at Wigan Athletic and thank him for his time. On a personal note, we think Rosler was a good manager and even more importantly a good bloke. He was incredibly fan oriented (how many managers go drinking in The Green Man, Wembley with fans before cup finals). We struck up a very good relationship with him and he would put in a friendly phone call every now and then in his time as manager or buy us a beer at the bar.

Today Rosler told Beesotted “Brentford will always be special to me. Good luck for today”.

More of a worry is Wigan with their moneybags chairman poaching Forshaw in January. Not unthinkable. But that’s the nature of being a lower league club unfortunately.

Shame he’s off. But we wish him all the best. Brentford now need to crack on and finish off what he started.

For the last time.
