More fire to come?

Will Grigg celebrates

It was good to see Latics bounce back from their second defeat of the season with another six points. Last time Latics tasted defeat they bounced back with three wins in a row after the Shrewsbury defeat, I don’t think anyone will be complaining if we get the same reaction to that Peterborough defeat.

Taking the knee

We’re back, with another episode of The Pie at Night Podcast. In which Jimmy, Alan and Chris take the knee and make a welcome return to The Northern Beer Temple to talk DIPAs, Gose and football. We ask whether the wheels have fallen off Latics’ season, whether Eric Nixon, Scott Green and Gary Roberts deserve

Yanic’s hardshot seals dramatic late win for Wigan

An unstoppable late shot from Yanic Wildschut gave Wigan a morale boosting injury time win against promotion rivals Walsall sending the Latics into the automatic promotion places.

Sixy Talk – Balti Pies and Bescot Banter

We’re a little bit better prepared this week, getting out and about mid-week searching high and low (aka looking on Twitter) for a Walsall fan to talk about this week’s important issues.  And so we found, the aptly named Pete Sadler (@Pistol_PeteS9).  Erstwhile member of the Bescot Banter team.

Bescot Banter ‘launched’ in the summer of 2010, when there were very few active websites dedicated to the Saddlers, and, like us all, they spied an opportunity to share their unqualified opinion with the masses!  Since then they’ve moved on to become a news site, sharing match previews, stats and reports, along with the occasional interview and blog shoehorned in for good measure.
