The Fiver | The power of good grooming and positive presentation

Click here to have the Fiver sent to your inbox every weekday at 5pm, or if your usual copy has stopped arriving SUITS YOU, SIR Roberto Martínez is considered an audacious manager so will not balk at the challenge that the Fiver hereby throws down to him: ditch the sharp suits, slick patter and permanent availability to the media – instead, cultivate a straggly beard and earthy hum while wearing denim tracksuits and a scowl. If the Spaniard remains one of the most respected gaffers in the game while following that Gok Wan guide, then the Fiver will truly accept that he deserves the acclaim and his lofty reputation is not just an example of the power of good grooming and positive presentation. As things stand, the Fiver just can't decide if Martinez is a prize pupil or smooth prefect. On one hand, the Fiver admires the fact that Martínez guided Wigan to FA Cup victory over Manchester City, especially as he did so while refusing to take the easy cop-out of resting players for league games. On the other, we know that trophies aren't everything, as David Moyes might say, and we can't help but notice that Wigan were barely out of the bottom three during Martínez's four-year tenure and, of course, they have just been relegated. We know he has nice principles, we're just not fully convinced he knows how to apply them. There's something about the 19,765 defensive blunders that Wigan made during his reign that doesn't feel right. So it seems slightly odd that Martinez has today been confirmed as the new manager of Everton, a year after he allegedly turned down a similar offer from Liverpool in order to stay at Wigan "and take the club to the next level", by which he presumably didn't mean the Championship. "Everton Football Club is today delighted to confirm the appointment of Roberto Martínez as its next manager," read a statement from the club in case the Fiver's word alone wouldn't do. "The 39-year-old Spaniard joins from Wigan Athletic and has signed a four-year contract at Goodison Park," added the statement, just in case anyone thought they had been referring to the 87-year-old Chinese Roberto Martínez, about whom we also have our doubts.

"Re: Tom Hillyard writing about Graham Arnold (yesterday's Fiver letters). I am not disagreeing with how grim things must be at Sheffield United but to cast aspersions on the mighty Central Coast Mariners cuts to my core.
