Going up (in pages) at least

There’s a new Mudhutter on sale this weekend

The strange thing about printing a magazine is that there is often quite a long lead time between pulling together 52 pages (yes you read that right we’ve done FIFTY TWO PAGES this time) and sniffing that box full of glossy paper and searching out the first spelling mistake.

It may have come to your attention that there have been a few, let’s call them “events” involving Wigan Athletic over the past week or so. We set our stall out early and actually wrote 40+ pages of this issue before Saturday. It has to be done that way given the tardy response times of our wonderful contributors, bless them.

So technically we were still a Premier League club when we wrote it, indeed we still are – although we may not be by the time you read this, oh stop waffling you wally! We have however shoehorned in half a dozen pages or so of post FA cup reaction and a soupcon of FA Cup related nostalgia. We have also reminisced over our eight years of Premier League football in full recognition that it may be nearing it’s conclusion.

But a football club is for life not just for cup ties and relegation so our minds quickly drift off elsewhere; and a magazine isn’t just for football, it’s also for life and it doesn’t take us long to divert to the other things which matter: music, pies, chippy, community and Wigan life. It is mainly football in this one mind you, apologies for that, normal service will be resumed next season.

So it’s 52 pages for just £2.00 and please bear with me as I rattle off how to become a purveyor of said product for about the 42nd time just for those who constantly ask [adopts saracastic voice] “ah don’t know where to buy it from……”


ONE – You can buy it off some fine looking fellows outside the DW Stadium before Sunday’s game with Aston Villa. they’ll be on the bridge, or opposite Rigalettos or floating around the pubs* (*drinking and laughing at the other plebs outside apparently)

It will be on sale in the following establishments: Waterstones, Grand Arcade, Wigan. Sparks Newsagent, Wallgate. Mesnes Road News and the Brickmakers Arms on Woodhouse Lane.

The programme man in the green van on Robin Park also sells it for us

Or if you’re a vampire who only goes out to suck blood in the early hours of the morning, you can always buy it online if vampires have internet access. Just click the link below and empty the contents of your Paypal account in our direction:


Watch out for our digital issue coming out in the next few days over at www.mudhutter.co.uk at a slightly lower cover price. Ideal for iPad, Kindle and those other cheaper tabletty things you buy eight year olds to keep them quiet.
