New season, same old drivel

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,

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.

Yes, the boys are back in town! Well, back on a modern, video based communication tool anyway as Jimmy, Alan, Ian, Luke and Sean meet up for some random chat instead of watching Game of Thrones. There’s some debate as to whether summer has begun or even ended, given the football season has resumed already

Roll up, roll up…

Roll up, roll up…

It’s that time of year again. The fixtures are out and we, at The Mudhutter, are starting to plan ahead, as much as we can be bothered doing anything of the sort.

Anyway, the good news is that you can now take out a five issue subscription for the 2017/18 season at the same price as last year. That price is £10 including free postage for five printed issues delivered to your doorstep by a cheerful, whistling postman.

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 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

Did you hear the one about the ex-footballer who challenged two hungry Wiganers to an eating challenge?  Well, after the debacle of John Coyne’s first visit to the the Pie at Night “studio” that’s exactly what happened and although eating habits, the passage of time and a growing attendee list meant that the challenge never

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

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
