Nothing too fancy for this weekend’s perfect hat-trick, just three tracks with a tenuous link to today’s opponents and some last-minute clues to our Art of Football competition. You’ll be pleased to know I haven’t got time to waffle on, so let’s get on with the music… Left Foot: Future Islands – A Dream of […]
I’ve spoken so much about turning points this season that we must have done a nine point turn over the course of the opening months of the season. Was Monday a turning point? It certainly felt like it. Warren Joyce’s first victory as Latics manager wasn’t pretty but my was it needed. If we had […]
There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Not that this is a practice I have ever performed, nor would I recommend any readers do so unless they happen to be employed as a taxidermist.
The Mudhutter is sixty issues old and in celebratory mode, so we’re producing a 60 page special to celebrate. There is of course a sombre note too, as we mourn the passing of one of our biggest cult heroes, Bobby Campbell but we’ve also got an issue packed full of great articles and features.

The King is Dead! Long live…er King Warren! Do you remember when ex-Latics custodian, that nice Nigel Adkins had catapulted Scunthorpe up the leagues, left them in the lurch to join Southampton and then repeated the exact same feat with the Saints?
Yes it’s time for the latest instalment in the Wigan Athletic Room 101 and with it being the letter F this month, you’d have thought it would be a tap in given we recently had a centre forward who was incapable of scoring a tap in during his 69 off appearances or even a goal […]
Right, before “fresh start” becomes the phrase of the moment at Wigan Athletic, it seems as good a time as any to fire up the laptop and get mine (fresh start) in early. It’s been more than a month since I’ve done one of these and we’ve won two games in the interim, so maybe […]
I hope you know what you’re doing. That was my first reaction to the sacking of Gary Caldwell. There seems to be more than a suggestion that it wasn’t just David Sharpe’s decision to remove Caldwell from his post as they had always had such a cordial relationship. It has been a poor start to […]
