Where’s Wally?

As it’s Saturday, the football doesn’t start until two o’clock and there’s precious little Latics news to keep you interested, why not take a virtual walk to the pub with the Pie At Night boys for the fourth episode of their podcast? This time the usual mix of latics, food, music, beer and other nonsense contains a healthy Manchester City flavour as twitter’s @the_paris_angel joins the fray to reminisce about 1999, FA Cups and all that.

I think it’s fair to say that everything is going well at Wigan Athletic right now. But that doesn’t mean we can’t cast our eye back over years gone by when some real dross wore the famous blue and white. So it came to pass that we launched a new feature on the Pie At Night podcast recently, loosely entitled The Latics Emporium of Sh**e designed to list an A to Z of Wigan Athletic players, who it’s fair to say didn’t exactly cover themselves in glory.

Euro 16 is just around the corner and you’ve got four blokes preparing to record a (sort of) football related podcast, so what do their thoughts turn to? That’s right, beer, specifically European beer. And where better to find it than Wigan’s very own bottle shop The Northern Beer Temple. After a few polite enquiries,

That’s right, beer, specifically European beer. And where better to find it than Wigan’s very own bottle shop The Northern Beer Temple. After a few polite enquiries, the chaps from the Pie At Night convinced proprietor John to let them pay a visit, taste some beers and run a loosely European Championship based competition to decide the best one, all in the name of infotainment (whatever that is).

May is finally out, so it’s time to get casting those clouts, which may (or may not, I never understood it) mean that it’s ok to start poncing about in shorts and t-shirts.  That’s where This Northern Shirt comes in, what better way to impress anyone on your holidays, at the Euros or just down the pub than with some Latics based apparel?

Unless you’ve spent the last couple of months in a promotion anxiety induced alcoholic stupor, you probably spotted that Arjan de Zeeuw is flying over a team of ‘Dutch Masters’ to play against the ‘Latics Legends’ at Ashton Town FC this Friday, May 13 (7.30pm). To promote the game, The Mudhutter got to grill Arry in the following interview that appeared in the now sold out issue 56 of The MFE.

Judgement Day Too

As you are no doubt aware, Blackpool fans have protests scheduled to co-incide with this saturdays’ game.  Jimmy’s article last week explained why we, at TNS are behind these protests, but we thought it was a good idea to capture the thoughts and feelings on their current situation.  We’re not trying to disuade anyone from what will hopefully be top day of celebration for Latics, but hoefully understanding what’s going on will mean that Blackpool fans get the respect and support they deserve on the day.  Here is Steve Rowland, Chairman of the Blackpool Supporters’ Trust, with his side of the story.

Firing Bullets – is this it?

Aka, “your mid-week narrative”.

Things are fairly relentless at the moment, with a twenty game unbeaten run, five wins on the bounce and our closet competitors slipping off the pace, you’d think there’d be plenty to talk about, wouldn’t you? Well, let’s grab a lump of 2×4 (or any other wood you’re comfortable touching) and see…

It’s been a while, probably more than a year, since I unofficially closed our Spreadshirt t-shirt shop. Getting things back up and running has been a bit of an on/off project in the interim, but we’re back this week with a bang, well maybe nota bang, but with a couple of new designs at least and you can find us here:
