NOW IS THE WINTER OF OUR 48 PAGE CONTENT Ho ho ho and we have got a festive treat for you as the latest Mudhutter hits the snow coated streets of Wigan, Lancashire. Let’s be honest, the only festive thing about it is the cover, and that’s a pile of cr*p too. But at least

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.

An open letter to Paul Cook Hello Paul, I’m a Wigan Athletic fan. I wouldn’t dream of claiming to speak for all Wigan Athletic fans yet I still feel the need to write a few words about the past week. You’ve probably noticed that we reside in a 25,000 seater stadium and it’s barely a

So, walking away from the ground on Saturday, I’m sure I wasn’t on my own in tutting repeatedly, muttering under my breath and hoping my mood would be improved by Debbie McGee messing up her routine and ending up being abandoned in Blackpool by the ‘Strictly’ crew. Ok, so I know that Debbie has a bit of a following amongst the, erm, more elderly amongst our readers, but you get my gist. I wasn’t best pleased with what I’d just watched.

Who’s your (least) favourite left Back? We tackle the once ubiquitous question of “who’s your favourite left back’ but in reverse at the Pie At Night as we, with the help of the general public, determine, who indeed is our worst ever left back. Chris goes first and nominates Salomon Olembe because “he looked like

I suspect many readers of this column may be familiar with the app called Timehop. Essentially it trawls through your social media accounts and tells you exactly what you were talking about one, two or even ten years ago. I occasionally find the use of it a bit tedious, like the perverse way our own

Jimmy smashes the CheckaTrade Charade. So the Checkatrade charade is over for another year. In fact for us, it’s hopefully over for a good few years if you get what I mean. I think I can safely say that I couldn’t care less, and neither, evidently did the management, given the barely foetal team that

The latest Pie At Night podcast is now online featuring a special guest from north of the border, Barca Jim who we interrogate in our time honoured “ten questions” format before discussing our preferred council teas of today and in yesteryear. We pore over the Blackburn game and look forward to the FA Cup plus

What could go wrong?

What could go wrong?

Good morning match day tics, and what better way to start your Saturday than listening to four lads in the pub talking about Latics and stuff like that?  Listening to five blokes do it, obviously.  So here, fulfilling that need, comes episode 35 of the Pie at Night podcast where our usual foursome are joined

Tin foil pot club…

Tin foil pot club…

I’m writing these notes very quickly, as I have a tin foil FA Cup to make to take to the game on Saturday as I’ve got CUP FEVER!! To start at the beginning, the magic of the cup is often preceded by the magic of the draw for the cup. Though sadly this appears not

Well, it’s been quieter down at tPAN towers this week. It’s been half term and parental responsibility has taken over from messing about on the internet. Still there’s been plenty to get your teeth into, if you’re looking for some essential pre-match entertainment. We started the week considering the CheckaTrade conundrum. We’re guessing that some
