Roger Espinoza: The Honduran had only briefly trained with his new team-mates be

The Honduran remained on the bench as the Latics were held 1-1 by Bournemouth of League One, just a couple of days after signing a two-and-a-half-year contract at the DW Stadium.

The 26-year-old, formerly of MLS side Sporting Kansas City, did not get the nod from Wigan manager Roberto Martinez but feels that further time with his new team-mates will be beneficial.

"I was ready to play but, at the same time, it might turn out to be a good thing that I didn't get on," said Espinoza.

"I'd not even managed to practice for a full day with the rest of the squad, so it wouldn't have been ideal.

"Obviously if the circumstances had been different, and we'd been two or three goals up, it might have been a different story.

"But it wasn't to be and it's meant I can spend this week further acclimatising myself into the club ahead of the Fulham game."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
