Oh my word, how was that for you? There’s no such word as average in the Wigan Athletic dictionary. We go from famine to feast every year. From the garbage of last season, we have apparently turned into a team who would give the Brazil World Cup side of 1970 a run for its’ money.

You’ll win nothing with kids! An infamous statement made all the more pertinent by the fact it was made by a Liverpool stalwart, Alan Hansen about none other than Manchester United.   Back then it was proven to be a statement of folly, as the class of ’92 overcame an early season reversal at Aston

New season, same old drivel

The Mudhutter is back with a bang to welcome you into a new season with the usual mix of the diverse, light hearted and reflective pieces on all matters relating to Wigan Athletic and other random subjects of our choosing. There’s an in depth piece on the managerial instability that has plagued us over recent times,

Or the league, or some squirrel pie.., It’s the Pie At Night podcast season curtain raiser and we’re covering matters as diverse as squirrel pie and Selena Gomez. Jimmy reveals that there really is such a thing as PIE FEST, a festival of pies, every Wiganer’s dream!  We then discuss other odd things we’ve put

Roll up, roll up and stand in line for your chance to ride the Wigan Athletic roller coaster once more. Height restrictions apply, ride not suitable for persons of a nervous disposition. The season hasn’t even started and already things are looking as turbulent as ever. A confident performance against Liverpool, followed by one or

So we arrive at the letter T, and what a feisty encounter we have on our hands! . Sean is first up and opts for Svetoslav Todorov. Something of a legend in Pompey when they got promoted, he never really recovered from a bad injury and is best remembered for missing a penalty at Blackburn.

Yes, the boys are back in town! Well, back on a modern, video based communication tool anyway as Jimmy, Alan, Ian, Luke and Sean meet up for some random chat instead of watching Game of Thrones. There’s some debate as to whether summer has begun or even ended, given the football season has resumed already

Roll up, roll up…

Roll up, roll up…

It’s that time of year again. The fixtures are out and we, at The Mudhutter, are starting to plan ahead, as much as we can be bothered doing anything of the sort.

Anyway, the good news is that you can now take out a five issue subscription for the 2017/18 season at the same price as last year. That price is £10 including free postage for five printed issues delivered to your doorstep by a cheerful, whistling postman.

Emporium of S-Express

Schmeets, Schtojkovic, Schammon and Scharner? So we move on to the sure to be hotly contested Emporium of S***e for the letter S but not without a quick post mortem for the letter R. Riera and Rogne worse than Neil Redfearn? Surely not? Anyway, regular listeners will know what’s been coming for a while, not

So Lita. … The podcast team hit the road to Manchester once again, broadcasting from a noisy Abel & Heywood. We welcome back ex Latics player John Coyne and talk about what we’ve been getting up to in the close season and at last giving a warm welcome to our new manager. No, he’s not

Redemption. That’s what I’m hoping is going to be on the menu at the DW next season, perhaps served the traditional way as a pie filling. If history is indeed repeating itself then after a disaster of a season in the Championship, the club have hopefully appointed the right man to get us back up

History repeating itself

You know me, I’m a worrier. Not to be confused with being a W…..oh you know. I’m always optimistic about watching my football club but I also fear what the future holds when you starting peeling away at the finances, the infrastructure, the support base of the club and past history, both recent history for
