Aint Nothing Wrong

Aint Nothing Wrong

We left you on the last episode of the podcast pondering the question “What could go wrong”.  Well, here’s your answer.  We’ve got the great acoustics of Wigan Central mixed with a few hours worth of beer and five blokes with a penchant for talking nonsense.  We could try and describe the outcome, but well,

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

As these things so often do.  This one was one of those “on this day in…” tweets, claiming that Primal Scream’s opus, Screamadelica was released on 23rd September, 27 years ago.  Once I’d got past the strangeness of celebrating something’s 27th anniversary, I focussed in on the obvious error, surely such a landmark album couldn’t have been released in such a sh*t year?  Surely it came out the year before?

Well, after a two week delay (I know it’s been hard for some of you) we’re back with Episode 34 of the Pie at Night Podcast.  Striking the usual balance between intelligent football chatter and inane nonsense, the team take on the subjects of a fortnight ago as we carry on drinking, and recording in

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

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

Cooking the books

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

In the last podcast of the normal season, we talk to Leeds fan Rob who tells us “you want to see the state of our Leeds”.

The truth is that they’re actually not quite in the worst shape they’ve ever been, though that doesn’t stop us poring over the army of managers they’ve had, Cellino and Bates and the price of fish (MATCH TICKETS)

This time last week, I was trying hard not to think about the Bristol City game and distracting myself by building up to watching John Bramwell at the Old Courts.  There’ll be a review of that gig somewhere at some point but suffice, for now, to say it was a decent distraction, the first entertainment

We’re Getting Back Together

We’re Getting Back Together

*Sorry, We’re getting the band back together…

Your club is in deep doo-doo, the crowds are revolting and the team looks like it’s losing interest so what else was there for us to do in latest episode of the Pie at Night Podcast to ponder the big question on everyone’s mind of the moment.  If you could form an indie band out of the current Latics squad, who would get the gig?

The Shins – Heartworms I’ve had people tell me how wonderful the Shins are without being convinced by their arguments or made curious enough to bother to actually listen to them. Either that or I’ve completely wiped the experience out of my head. Which is hardly surprising if this, their fifth studio album is anything

A Perfect Hat-Trick #6 – Changing Man

A Perfect Hat-Trick #6 – Changing Man

The best thing about being a Latics fan is how the club have developed a knack of lulling you into a false sense of finality before raising hopes, expectations and a few eyebrows with a revival that would compete with anything that happened to Lazarus.  The thing is that, when you’ve been through as many comebacks as Latics fans have, you sort to come to expect it, and that feeling of finality is never quite as final as it used to be.
