Jimmy did his bit on these Chinese rumours yesterday. As usual, because he’s a polite and diplomatic sort, he was measured and took a balanced of things. Which is a great way to go about things, because it allows people to make their minds up whilst you get on with making your own point. But,

It’s all going a little bit too well at the minute down at the DW. Almost too well, and it’s easy to take your eye off the future when you’re having such a good time at the present. There’s no smoke without fire as they say and ever since Garry Cook was appointed in the

Burning Revelation!

Burning Revelation!

Another three points but this was no walk over, and there’s no telling how important a win Scunthorpe could turn out to be at the end of the season. Expectations were mixed going in to the match at Glanford Park, though we were on the back of two wins we were heading to the side

Browned Off at Southend

Browned Off at Southend

What’s that glare heading up the M6? Why, it’s the gleaming figure of Phil Brown of course, a man who has miraculously somehow managed to resist eating himself over all these years. Whereas his Premier League days at Hull may seem a lifetime away, he deserves a lot of credit for the longevity he has

Here we go again and they say the sun always shines on the righteous, so I don’t know what that means with the latest issue of the Mudhutter going on sale tomorrow. Yes, Issue 64 is about to hit the streets and we’ve got 44 pages full of new, great content from new contributors and

On the road again

What kind of performance on the road will be this time for Latics? Will it be a Charlton type accomplished smash and grab or more like Shrewsbury or Peterborough, will we receive a sucker punch off a fellow promotion challenger? Can we win a game away from home without Sam “bites yer legs” Morsy in the team? I always liken him to Animal out of The Muppet Show for some reason, full of energy but a bit of a nutter.

More fire to come?

Will Grigg celebrates

It was good to see Latics bounce back from their second defeat of the season with another six points. Last time Latics tasted defeat they bounced back with three wins in a row after the Shrewsbury defeat, I don’t think anyone will be complaining if we get the same reaction to that Peterborough defeat. I

Setting the pace

Ten games in. A useful marker. I remember reading somewhere about the way that the Germans would cover games in the run up to a World Cup. Far from having Wrighty and Robbie Savage clowning around on a comfy couch, the German approach would be to stand around a table wearing suits and discussing whether it was conceivable that Germany would not win the World Cup.

At the risk of going all Teutonic and serious on you, I’d like to attempt to a similar potted analysis of Wigan Athletic’s chances of promotion this season. The good news is that we are in second place, which is a promotion spot. However, bad news is that we have lost two games against the teams in 1st and 3rd.

Keeping it real

Keeping it real

See, now we’re getting somewhere. For months, we have got together to discuss the worst players to sport the famous blue and white (or green in this case) of Wigan Athletic in a thinly veiled excuse to go to the pub and finally, we are at the SQUAD FORMATION stage.

Missing the buzz

Missing the buzz

It’s been a hard watch over the last three matches for myself. That’s partly due to the fact I haven’t actually seen the matches. It’s always hard to miss games, the buzz of going to a match on a Saturday afternoon. The bond you build with your mates and others on the terraces, it’s less
