Sigh. It’s just as well we’re not taking this contest too seriously as once again the folly of youth and the new higher echelon Wigan Athletic is usurping the dark, awful players of our past. It’s not for us to decide, just for us to nominate. Bear that in mind when you’re targeting your abuse.So

Welcome to the Emporium of S—e where we celebrate, if that’s the right word, those players who were less than perfect in a Wigan Athletic shirt. And as ever, controversy is never too far away.  Alan goes first and plumps for red hot pre-contest favourite, Jeff Peron. The fey Frenchman was a master of falling

The Annual Josephs’ Goal Charity game at Ashton Town  Next Friday 19th May at Ashton Town is the place to be if you are a Wigan Athletic fan! After what has been something of a dismal season, the Josephs Goal charity match promises to put a smile back on Latics fans’ faces as a team

What went wrong (please keep to under 100,000 words!!!)?  Player dealings in the summer both incoming and out left a lot to be desired. No adequate back up for Will Grigg and Powell and Gomez both failed to live up to previous spells. At the back, we were hasty breaking up the Pearce and Morgan

O-MFG!

O-MFG!

A potent reminder that things aren’t THAT bad….. Welcome to Wigan Athletic, and welcome to your worst nightmares: a room full of the most terrible players to wear the hallowed blue and white.

The truth is that they’re actually not quite in the worst shape they’ve ever been, though that doesn’t stop us poring over the army of managers they’ve had, Cellino and Bates and the price of fish (MATCH TICKETS)

I first visited Reading on a Tuesday night when they played at Elm Park. A £20 train fare, the only complication being that the return trip involved getting the overnight sleeper to Carlisle. Then first train of the day to Wigan, arriving at 07:43 after which I quickly went home, got changed and went to

The latest Pie at Night podcast is online and features tales of sporting excellence, goalkeeping woes and scurrilous rumours aplenty. The regulars are joined once more by Luke aka @WeahsCousin who is taking a break from making stuff up on the internet to talk about Latics’ current plight. We deal the important matters of the

THE APRIL MUDHUTTER COMETH

It’s that time again, time for another Mudhutter to hit the streets. And as ever, we give you an irreverent mix of the past, present and future. There’s certainly plenty of deliberation as to how we’ve got to where we are and what the landscape may look like next season. We also take a look
