No, how’s YOUR new year’s resolution to get back on the writing horse going? Well, I’m late. Three weeks since the turn of the year, 21 one days (nearly) since that season turning victory at Birmingham and two hundred and seventy minutes of turgid, energy sapping, inexplicably rubbish football since there was even a chink […]
Welcome to Episode 66 of the Podcast in which Jimmy, Alan, Chris and Luke talk around the elephant in the room waiting for someone to scream “COOK OUT”. There’s New Year’s resolutions. Made up stats, TV and Brexit flavoured train tapas. Oh, and V… A… effin R. Of course there’s way too much football. You […]
In which Jimmy, Alan, Chris and Ian ignore the fact that IT’S NOW XMAS to moan like billyho about the current state of affairs at Latics as well as asking THE DIFFICULT QUESTIONS like “name a worse substitute than Kal Naismith” (sorry Kal, it’s not you, it’s us)
In which Jimmy, Alan, Chris and Ian vie for your votes, in more than one way. We catch up on all things Latics, as well as allowing us some flights in the cause of #content. We really do need to get back to the pub.
In which Jimmy, Alan and Ian chat shit for hours (ish) whilst Chris catches 40 winks in his Yorkshire bolthole. As well as catching up with the international week and all things Latics, we finish off our chat with Mark Hayes as he runs through his time as Ashton Town chairman.
It’s a new season and, here at the Pie at Night, we’re approaching it with a new sense of enthusiasm and vigour. In reality what that means is we’re going to be trying to stay out of the pub (and Booths food hall) for long enough to keep you up to date with our thoughts […]
Who can remember the fourth of August, eh? There was sun (probably, it was August), a scoring frenzy and Sheffield Wednesday. Things haven’t gone exactly to plan for Latics since that first day of the season and chances are that things will be totally different as Latics travel to Sheffield with the threat of snow […]
The summer break has done little to dampen the work ethic here at the Pie at Night and with the first game of the season just days away, we were all set to travel to Sheffield to track down a Wednesday fan to ask some, frankly pointless, questions. Then we realised that was just stupid, […]
Being able to get coherent words onto paper under pressure, or in times of high emotion is a sign of a good writer. I could barely write a text message on the way home from Monday night’s game, let alone an article, and have spent the days between now and then too tired and emotional […]
In Defence of the Council Tea If you follow some of the same people I do on Twitter, you’ll have recently spotted the #councilteathursday hashtag, pioneered by “friend of the mag” @barcajim. In general, people have jumped on the idea like Latics fans on a slightly off form performance, but amongst all the potato waffles, […]
