There’s got to be some perks to this job hobby, right? So it came to pass that The Pie at Night podcast went on the road to the Northern Beer Temple on Wigan Lane for Episode 3 of an as yet undetermined series. An evening of reflection and Euro 2016 previewing was planned until we hatched a further idea. To have our OWN European Championships featuring a selection of beers from around the continent. Yes that would be a good idea wouldn’t it?

It’s not like me to be contrary for the sake of it but Sunday was for me the most frustrated I have been all season. You’re champions lads, so play like champions! Seriously, in my eyes, Sunday was our first game in the Championship – a chance for the team to show what they can

Yes, it’s back to gatecrash the tail end of the Easter Bank Holiday and what a cracking issue we have lined up for you this month.

Ten games to go, and whereas it shouldn’t be about him, it is perhaps a career defining couple of months for Gary Caldwell above all others. His career at this stage will reflect whatever Wigan Athletic achieve this year. If we go up, then it will be the launchpad to bigger things and he will be celebrated as a ‘fine young manager’, if we miss out then it’s quite possible both the club and it’s manager will fade back into obscurity over the next few years.
