We start our search for the worst Latics centre halves with an unashamedly cliquey mention of some time Pie At Night guest John Coyne. We also see fit to include Coyney’s mate, Neil Fitzhenry and Pat McGibbon, who John claimed was rubbish and only got picked because he came from Man United. There was that goal against Colchester though….

We also threw Roman Golobart in to make up this quartet because when we did G in the alphabet, good old Roman actually encouraged fans to vote for him, and won.

Right Back where we belong…

Right Back where we belong…

The Wigan Athletic worst* right back poll As if to prove that the right back position has always been a problem position (or not) for Wigan Athletic, the Pie At Night crew only listed four right backs in total as we pored our way through the alphabet. Nevertheless, we begin with a round of nominations

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.

A Bishops Cleave?

A Bishops Cleave?

More? You want more?  Want sort of sad, masochistic fool are you?  Well, don’t say we didn’t warn you but if you ask then you get and it’s now time for Episode 31 of the Pie at Night Podcast.  “A Bishop’s Cleave?” Packed full of content, we rejoin Jimmy, Alan, Chris and Ian in the

The End of the Line

And so we reach the end of our scientific experiment to find the worst players to wear the treasured blue and white of Wigan Athletic with our final round featuring the letters U to Z, excluding W as we covered that last time.

Given the paucity of options available amongst these lesser known letters of the alphabet (have we EVER had a player whose surname begins with the letter X? I think not), we are left to shout out our nominations after three and surprisingly it is Amr Zaki who receives two votes from both Luke and Alan.

W is for Whatever, Lads

W is for Whatever, Lads

A list of weally weally bad players….. We’re back with another podcast and another round of Emporium of S***e, albeit it we covered the letter W a few podcasts back in our never ending quest to find Wigan Athletic’s worst ever player.  Alan kicks things off by putting forward useless on loan Bolton winger Stuart

Up for the cup

Or the league, or some squirrel pie.., It’s the Pie At Night podcast season curtain raiser and we’re covering matters as diverse as squirrel pie and Selena Gomez. Jimmy reveals that there really is such a thing as PIE FEST, a festival of pies, every Wiganer’s dream!  We then discuss other odd things we’ve put

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.

Emporium of S-Express

Emporium of S-Express

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

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

O-MFG!

O-MFG!

A potent reminder that things aren’t THAT bad….. Welcome to Wigan Athletic, and welcome to your worst nightmares: a room full of the most terrible players to wear the hallowed blue and white. We’re up to O in our alphabetically organised cornucopia of dross, and there’s a fair old contest going on. So let’s look
