Get it right – this time

Get it right – this time

So here we go again, just two short years since our first game back in the third tier we’re back again. Ready for another attempt at League One and as Joe Fagin sang in Auf Wiedersehen Pet ‘Get it right this time’. It’s been a summer of change in the corridors of power at the

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.

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 long…

So long…

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

Wanted Man

David Sharpe and Paul Cook

“Got the man we wanted” so said David Sharpe as he unveiled Paul Cook on Wednesday afternoon, it’s open to debate whether Cook actually was the man we wanted. If rumours are to be believed there were some above Cook on that list, but if Cook wasn’t necessarily our first choice increasingly he looks like

History repeating itself

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

R is for Rectify

R is for Rectify

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

P is for Paltry Performances

P is for Paltry Performances

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

So what went wrong? – Erm…

So what went wrong? – Erm…

 What went wrong?  Where to begin? Everything that could go wrong last season did go wrong, and despite claims to the opposite it’s clear the club haven’t learned the lessons of 2014/15. Although it’s fun for for those of us following at home the constant turn over of the squad is nothing but damaging. We
