Back in the limelight

Wigan Athletic lift the FA Cup

It’s bizarre to think that it’s five years next May since we lifted the FA Cup. Five years since the defining moment in our history,  five years since the eyes of the world were upon us. I often think we aren’t given the credit we deserve for our cup win. Probably as a result of

Good to be back

Wigan Athletic Blackburn

I don’t know about you but it feels an age since we last played a league game. That frustrating goalless draw with Blackburn may as well have been last season, let alone last month. A lot has happened since then, any potential takeover talk has calmed down and Latics have progressed through one cup and

It’s not the programme #1

Hello, good morning and welcome to your (when we can be bothered) regular round-up of all things tPAN related. It’s been a funny old week, starting with a 3-0 victory that was, to say the least, harder than the score line suggested and finished, for a lot of you, in early trains, #cans and a

What Next?

I could start this week’s column talking about the excellent win over Southend last Saturday, or I could even speak about the hard earned point on the road at Gillingham on Tuesday. But rightly or wrongly that all pails in to significance with the news that broke late on Sunday evening, that the tenure of

The times they are a changing…

…and it seems that little ole’ Wigan Athletic have been singled out to be the next victim, er target for the murky world of Far Eastern Investment. Those of you who read about online will have spotted a couple of articles by myself and a good mate perhaps questioning the wisdom of this and exercising

It’s all going a little bit too well at the minute down at the DW. Almost too well, and it’s easy to take your eye off the future when you’re having such a good time at the present. There’s no smoke without fire as they say and ever since Garry Cook was appointed in the

Burning Revelation!

Burning Revelation!

Another three points but this was no walk over, and there’s no telling how important a win Scunthorpe could turn out to be at the end of the season. Expectations were mixed going in to the match at Glanford Park, though we were on the back of two wins we were heading to the side

Here we go again and they say the sun always shines on the righteous, so I don’t know what that means with the latest issue of the Mudhutter going on sale tomorrow. Yes, Issue 64 is about to hit the streets and we’ve got 44 pages full of new, great content from new contributors and

Bouncing back

Will Grigg and Gavin Massey

A week of varying emotions for Wigan Athletic. From the despair (bit much ?) of that insipid defeat at Shrewsbury on Saturday to the elation of going to one of our fellow promotion challengers and comprehensively outclassing them on their own patch. In the process ending Charlton’s own 100% record at home and earning our

Shrewsbury calling

So it’s back to the day job on Saturday, and two weeks since our last league match with Portsmouth it feels like an age since we were in competitive action. Of course last time out our winning start to the season came to an end, in a match we really should have won. I still

Feel Good Factor

So the winning run comes to an end, and by rights it’s came in a game we could and should have won by a large margin. Latics were simply un-playable against Portsmouth on Saturday and on another day would have been two or three goals up at half time. The fact we weren’t played right

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
