Less than a year after being poached by Wigan owner Dave Wheelan, the Latics’ supremo has turned game keeper and put Uwe Rosler out of his misery at The DW Stadium…. A little over 24 hours after giving Rosler his backing and the dreaded vote of confidence.

It does seem amazing that, after leaving Griffin Park, Rosler and his Wigan team set off on a remarkable run that propelled them into the play-offs, as well as seeing Uwe’s name linked with the Celtic and Eintracht Frankfurt jobs… Eleven months later… it’s P45 time with plenty of Christmas shopping time in which to spend his hefty pay-off.

Despite the terrace chants doing the rounds, I personally like Uwe, and hope he gets back into a decent football role very soon, but I bet his publishers wish they’d held off pushing the print button on his autobiography quite so soon – it seems there’s a very juicy chapter missing in hindsight.
