It’s been a while. Although my home office is in Preston and I regularly go through the station on my way to Blackpool, I’ve hardly spent any real time there for the last [takes socks off] twelve or so years. The last time was probably on the way back from the Blackpool game last year, […]
Well, E is for not much really due to the dearth of Wigan Athletic footballers whose surnames begin with the letter E. So who do we have?
The first question when sitting down to write this was whether to try to capture everything that’s gone on over the last week or so, or stick to this week’s game? With three games in short order, it might prove too much to cover them all in one article. Then again, seeing as I can […]
It’s Saturday kids and it’s time to try and pick you up ready for the game with a perfect hat-trick of tracks with tenuous link to goings on at Latics. Coming of the back of four defeats, that might be a little harder than it’s been in the past, but it’s the weekend, the sun […]
It’s good to talk, right? Well it is sometimes and no better when it’s a bit of pre-match, pie related chatter with the opposition, which we regularly tried to do on This Northern Soul. As good an idea as it is, I’d not put that much effort into continuing that feature into The Pie at […]

The first (and some would say easiest) is the idea of the perfect hat-trick, three songs to start your weekend that have some, no […]
A relegation battle? This isn’t what we ordered was it! And we may not be in one yet but the next few games look particularly daunting and points may be at a premium somewhat. Sheffield Wednesday are as ever sat perpetually on the edge of either greatness or financial meltdown, set against the backdrop of […]
We have to call it Room 101 to dodge those swear filters but we also know it by the delightful name of The Emporium of Sh*te, with the latest instalment featuring the letter D, as Donervon Daniels looks on nervously.
There are two things I usually do this time of year. One, write an article where I pretend I’ve only just realised that the football season has started and two, try and sum up where the transfer window has taken Latics. So, here goes… September? It’s September already? How did that happen, how are […]
Anyone of a certain age might remember a children’s gameshow called Runaround hosted by a gravel voiced pre-Eastenders Mike Reid, who implored the kids to “Run-arrrraaannnd” in that comedy Cockney accent and find a corner to put themselves into.
