Temperature rising   

A frosty winter of discontent or a fresh new breeze sweeping through the DW Stadium? Whilst cover star, Dylan is stuck in Belarus suffering temperatures of minus 25, the rest of the crew are in surprisingly hearty mood given the FA Cup result and subsequent draw. Kicking off with some Warren Joyce facts (of a

The Great Escape?

The Great Escape?

We’ve perhaps had a little bit of stick aimed in our direction here at Pie At Night for not being Warren Joyce’s biggest fans. And yes by and large we didn’t think Caldwell shouldn’t have been sacked and doing so has hardly had the desired effect.

Yet something happened on Saturday which perhaps gave us some food for thought. You see, Wigan Athletic won a football match. OK it wasn’t in the league and Nottingham Forest were truly awful but maybe, just maybe there is a glimmer of light appearing from the dark corridor of relegation we’ve been staring at these past few months.

You see, Warren Garton Joyce has previous at this, in spite of those questioning his managerial credentials. It may have been 18 years ago, at a lower level, when football was a very, very different beast from what it is now but Warren Joyce is a man who can get teams out of what is, let’s be honest, a right pickle.

The Mudhutter is sixty issues old and in celebratory mode, so we’re producing a 60 page special to celebrate. There is of course a sombre note too, as we mourn the passing of one of our biggest cult heroes, Bobby Campbell but we’ve also got an issue packed full of great articles and features.

The Next Agenda

The Next Agenda

There’s a lot of the use of this word “agenda” doing the rounds at the minute. Does the club have an agenda? Can fans have an agenda? The idea that fans will demand a certain style of play, or round on a manager who refuses to conform to that style of play is a highly
