CROWDED OUT

CROWDED OUT

Yep I’m talking crowds again! Mine host of this column, Mr Kendrick recently poll on Twitter regarding how people watched or listened to the Swansea game. Twenty four hours later and we find that 63% of people were at the DW but another 23% chose to watch the game view the Sky red button, and

Boxing off Bristol

Let me state the obvious first. This season is proving to be one of the most exciting for a while, even though we aren’t winning every week. I don’t think we will get promoted, we’re unlikely to finish above Brentford, for a start. Yet we are having a go in every game, watching a team

JUMP OFF THE HAMSTER WHEEL

JUMP OFF THE HAMSTER WHEEL

I’m sure there are other things that people do to fill the void but just imagine for a second what life would be like without football? It is an all-consuming force which does wonderful, and occasionally terrible things to your emotions. I’m not necessarily talking about the wide gamut of feelings expressed during a typical

Growing Pains

For many years, I played in the Soccerdome leagues. We bulldozed through the divisions with attacking verve, and a solid rearguard where every player knew their role. We had a blinder of a ‘keeper, a man mountain who simply stopped everything. Then as we got to the top division, we (he) started leaking a lot

Last call for the Championship flight. Sup your 5am airport pint and climb aboard for another season of in flight entertainment, no doubt interrupted by a spot of turbulence as we go. Of course, it is the silly season yet again and there are clear lines of demarcation between what comes out of the club

Drunk Gulls The Pie At Night crew return from their somewhat extended summer break and they certainly haven’t been spending the time learning how to be more organised. It’s a mix of the topical and the reflective as the World Cup and our post season review make the cut. We discuss our worst ever World

We had such an exciting trip…

We had such an exciting trip…

It’s hard to succinctly put the choice words together to summarise my emotions following the events of last weekend. Ultimately, when attempting to select from all the erudite phrases bouncing around my fatigued cranium, I keep returning to the words of one Dora the Explorer: WE DID IT!!! We did it in style as well.

So, as the school teacher and beleaguered parents explain to their youngsters on sports day: there are no winners! No, you are all winners!! Although really there are only two winners so far this season, soon to be joined by a third. Not that I would wish the play offs on anyone. Wembley trip or not, it has provided nothing but abject heartbreak for us over the years.

I’m a bit dubious about what to write here, mainly because I’m of a nervous disposition. In life generally but especially when it comes to all matters Wigan Athletic. As football fans, we invest such a large part of our lives in our football club and the full range of emotions is never far away.

Yes the Pie At Night is back and we’re raving about our trip to the British Pie Awards, as the podcast crew finally get a good gig and take their place alongside serious food critics. Hey, we’re from Wigan, there’s our credentials right there! After that light hearted stuff we move on to the football
