To see out the night cleanly, there are a few more links to Martinez and even a mention of Gareth Southgate in the papers today.

Martinez – Forum Thread

The People suggest that Randy Lerner and Paul Faulkner spoke with the Wigan manager prior to the meeting with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they have an un-named and unquoted club source saying the job is Roberto’s if he wants it. But add that he refused to commit to us until he had heard the plans of the Liverpool owners.

Southgate – Forum Thread

They also state that we have sounded out former centre half Gareth Southgate. Again nothing in terms of substance for this link either.

Lambert – Forum Thread

They also say we have cooled our interest in the Norwich manager.

But back to Martinez –

Click Lancashire suggest that Martinez would actually prefer a job offer from our goodselves, than Liverpool. They say we spoke to him on Thursday – which would tally with meeting him prior to OGS – and that the discussions were positive.

Now it differs slightly from the People report, because it implies Martinez is seriously considering us over the Scousers as opposed to the implication I read into him wanting to here what Liverpool’s plans were – but that could just be me seeing too much into things.
