Firing Bullets – is this it?

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…

After shambolically failing to find a Peterborough fan to interview last weekend, I’d committed to putting more effort in this week, only to wake up this morning, realising I’d spent most of my week travelling to and from Bristol, getting frustrated at the quality of mobile internet and not bothering to even think about Sixy Talking.

It’s that time of the week again, the time where all our careful planning (scrabbling around on Twitter) comes together to give you a view of this week’s game from the North Stand. This week’s victim willing volunteer is James Bentley, author of “The Forgotten Fifteen” a book about Bury’s promotion from the fourth division way back when. Which we’re now convinced is just a trick to make us forget just how old we are.

It’s been a while, but I’m back and as usual I’ve got some YouTube clips, tenuous links and a bit of a topical theme for you.  Rather than just ramble on for you a bit, I’ve done some proper research this week and found you three artists with a connection to Latics’ opponents today.  In so much that they are from Walsall, and yes, that sort of research is dead easy these days, but the hard bit comes when you try and string them together into an article.

We’re a little bit better prepared this week, getting out and about mid-week searching high and low (aka looking on Twitter) for a Walsall fan to talk about this week’s important issues.  And so we found, the aptly named Pete Sadler (@Pistol_PeteS9).  Erstwhile member of the Bescot Banter team.

Bescot Banter ‘launched’ in the summer of 2010, when there were very few active websites dedicated to the Saddlers, and, like us all, they spied an opportunity to share their unqualified opinion with the masses!  Since then they’ve moved on to become a news site, sharing match previews, stats and reports, along with the occasional interview and blog shoehorned in for good measure.

We’re all a bit on the last minute this week and haven’t had time to logically source an Oldham fan to interview.  That was the excuse we got from NRP when we asked him, but we think he might he might have been scared of the reaction he’d get from asking the big “Who’s the real Latics?” question.  So we’ve sent out a roving reporter to find an Oldham fan wandering the streets of Wigan so let’s hand you over to the steps at Wigan Wallgate…

Hiya, it’s been a while, but the cricket season has been well and truly over for about a month now and the bobble hat has made a couple of early morning appearances so I’m running out of excuses to not think too hard about the fortunes of Wigan Athletic. The only way I know to relieve the pressure of thinking too hard about the football is to pour the overspill from my brain into a computer and to see what comes out the other end.
