Temperature Check

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,

If you’re one of the 400-odd hardy souls who’ve braved the trip to the soul coast then welcome to you your handy post-match guide to the week on the Pie at Night.  For the rest of you, here’s something to fill and hour or so before you’re forced to get off the couch and do something productive with your day.  Either way, kick back, relax, put the latest podcast on and enjoy the reading…

A Perfect Hat-Trick v2.0 #5 – Omens

We’re supposed to do these regular things, but half the time we forget/can’t be bothered/have better things to do.  No more though.  2018 (or at least the first week of it) is going to see us making more of an effort to entertain you, Dear Reader.  Earlier today, Chris went out and spoke to John Neptune, a Bournemouth fan, off of Twitter in our first Sixy Talk of the year and now we’re back making tenuous links between goings on at Latics and some songs we’ve been listening too.  

Enjoy…

Look, I know that some of my views about Latics aren’t exactly what you’d call populist.  I’m also aware that I’ve been accused of having an agenda (or two), too aware in fact, so aware that I regularly find myself two thirds of the way through an article only to bin it off because I

As we enter the festive period we’ve ducked into the Mudhutter archive for this post from Issue 45 of The MFE.  Issue 65 is available now from all the usual places, plus www.mudhutter.co.uk.  Don’t thank us until you’ve tried it…  It was one of those daft news stories, like the “World” Pie Eating Championship, something

So, walking away from the ground on Saturday, I’m sure I wasn’t on my own in tutting repeatedly, muttering under my breath and hoping my mood would be improved by Debbie McGee messing up her routine and ending up being abandoned in Blackpool by the ‘Strictly’ crew. Ok, so I know that Debbie has a bit of a following amongst the, erm, more elderly amongst our readers, but you get my gist. I wasn’t best pleased with what I’d just watched.

Sixy Talk – Fish and Chip o’clock Rock

“Do you remember when them Pie at Night idiots used to talk to fans of other clubs about how they ate pies and stuff?  I really miss that”.  Said none of you ever.  But you know what, we enjoy it and have been meaning to bring it back all season, it’s just that our intrepid reporters have been too busy arguing about chippy teas and thinking up daft questions for the gaffer to do anything about it.

Until now.  Which is good, because our opponents on Saturday have quite a bit to say for themselves that, even if we’re not quite ready to learn from, we should all get behind and support.

So off we trekked to the Cala Gran, Fleetwood for a word with, well, you’ll find out…
