Mudhutter Issue 69 now available

Yes, we are back with another dose of comedy, nostalgia, football comment and all the other rubbish, Wigan Athletic and otherwise, filling our time writing inane gibberish until we can crack open the Quality Street tin and have a mince pie. There’s lots of stuff about the takeover, the infamous red button and an appreciation

I’ve got 67 fanzines…

Help us get to 68 I network with a lot of the other fanzine lads on Twitter, and I noticed the other day that the long standing Man United fanzine Red News were running a campaign to get 242 subscribers to reflect their next release being issue 242. Well, we’re Wigan Athletic not Man United

Talk For Joseph

Talk For Joseph

Saturday 21st April 2018 was the marker we had for Latics’ promotion party.  If things carry on as now then that may well be done and dusted earlier.  The Fleetwood game is still going to be a big one though as Joseph’s Goal and Emmerson Boyce are challenging you to Walk For Joseph.  Led by Boyce, a proud ambassador for the charity, and joined by a number of Latics celebrities along the way, the walk will leave the Wigan Athletic Training Centre at Euxton on Friday, April 20, and include an overnight stay on route – as well as numerous food and ‘refreshment’ stops – before arriving at Highbury Stadium, Fleetwood in good time for the big game.

It started with a tweet…

As these things so often do.  This one was one of those “on this day in…” tweets, claiming that Primal Scream’s opus, Screamadelica was released on 23rd September, 27 years ago.  Once I’d got past the strangeness of celebrating something’s 27th anniversary, I focussed in on the obvious error, surely such a landmark album couldn’t have been released in such a sh*t year?  Surely it came out the year before?

CheckaTrade on Me

I didn’t go to Blackpool away in the Checkatrade Trophy. It wasn’t a boycott, I just couldn’t be arsed. I felt like I should do something, or rather not do something but, conscious of the can of worms it would open, I did nothing. I let the bait swim past. Football fans come in all
