History repeating

Paul Cook and Paul Jewell

It’s been a while since Latics made a start to the season like this one, un-beaten in the league with three wins out of three. Four out of five if we’re to include the cup win over Blackpool, even the cup defeat to Aston Villa on Tuesday hasn’t seemed to dent the confidence and positivity

New Attitude

Nick Powell

The contrast between last season’s Wigan Athletic and this is vast and in many ways unbelievable. There are positivity levels flowing through the club that haven’t been present since the march to promotion in the spring of 2016. Credit must go to Paul Cook and his staff for their ability to build that positive environment

I’m so excited

Oh my word, how was that for you? There’s no such word as average in the Wigan Athletic dictionary. We go from famine to feast every year. From the garbage of last season, we have apparently turned into a team who would give the Brazil World Cup side of 1970 a run for its’ money.

Welcome to the technically challenging 29th episode of the Pie at Night. With one user finding himself with a bust sound card and another completely inaudible, we started late and lost a lot of great #content, probably the best #content ever but never mind the show must go on, even if that show is truncated

Looking Good

As first weeks go it’s not been a bad start to the season for Paul Cook and his Wigan Athletic side. Not bad at all, an excellent opening day win at Milton Keynes was followed up by a hard earned victory over Blackpool in the League Cup.  Clearly not a competition that is at the

You’ll win nothing with kids! An infamous statement made all the more pertinent by the fact it was made by a Liverpool stalwart, Alan Hansen about none other than Manchester United.   Back then it was proven to be a statement of folly, as the class of ’92 overcame an early season reversal at Aston

New season, same old drivel

The Mudhutter is back with a bang to welcome you into a new season with the usual mix of the diverse, light hearted and reflective pieces on all matters relating to Wigan Athletic and other random subjects of our choosing. There’s an in depth piece on the managerial instability that has plagued us over recent times,

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

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

In our prestige season curtain-raiser Jimmy, Alan and Ian get together to… well… chat about the usual, uninformed nonsense.  We have thoughts on the Chorley goal fest, Bogle and Power’s disappearing act and, erm some other football things.  For the rest of you, we give you the opportunity to delve into the psyches of the

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.
