The man said what he had to. This club is great, I knew it was what I wanted to do, I have turned other jobs down before this one. The sort of things you expect out of a manager who has just signed for a new club, and to be fair it is fairly standard, you can't really read much into it.

Yet the manner in which he did it you can. Happy and as ever passionate about what he does, Owen Coyle did seem genuinely happy to be here and seems to understand what this club is about. We are a family club and that is how it always will be.

Mentioning about players and recruitment, both Chairman and Manager are reading of the same sheet. We will be signing players and all avenues will be looked at. Owen Coyle as a reputation for being great in the loan market. The likes of Daniel Sturridge, Jack Wilshere and Ryo Miyaichi have all been former loan signings of Owen.

So that is officially that. Now lets back the man and get signing players Wigan, bring on the new season!
