Maybe There Is A God

9 years ago

Not that I’m particularly religious but I’m beginning to think that there could be somebody looking down on us.

It still sticks in the throat that Callum Mcmanaman got away with no punishment whatsoever for his assault on Massadio Haidara.

Not only that, but I can still hear Dave Whelan’s voice in my head saying Mcmanaman hadn’t done anything wrong and was a great lad blah blah blah.

Wigan’s relegation has seen Whelan get his comeuppance and now Mcmanaman has suffered from divine intervention.

Having been called up by England for the Under 21 European Championship, he will now miss it after injuring his ankle against Arsenal on relegation night.

The injury is expected to rule the Wigan player out for around three months so he could even be struggling to be ready for next (Championship!) season.

Wigan manager Martinez said;

“It is a shame he will miss the Euros because he deserved an experience like that.

He is an incredible example for everyone, a real bright spark who shows you how to enjoy your game in a really incisive way.

If any player needs to stay at this club and become an important part of next season’s Championship campaign, it is Callum.”

Yes he is an incredible example and the Championship is undoubtedly the best place for him.

I’d like to think Massadio Haidara had a little chuckle when he heard about Mcmanaman’s injuury but doubtless he’s a better man than me.
