So it came to pass that Owen Coyle lasted all of five and a half months, or two Mudhutters if you prefer. And we were looking forward to having some fun with the bell end too….ah well, the slightly delayed from Christmas Issue 45 is about to hit the streets. Weighing in at a 52 pages it’s fatter than Grant Holt and doesn’t go on about Carlisle or greyhounds all the time, although the subject matter is often just as irrelevant.
We’ve got two interviews with former Latics photographer Frank Orrell and Man City fan The Paris Angel and we’ve got European tales a plenty. We haul over the coals of the Coyle regime and several regulars give their views on 2013 and the state of play at Wigan Athletic as we head into (yet another) new era.
Aside from football we look at the other important things in life: pies, pubs, crap Christmas presents and Uncle Joe’s mintballs plus there’s all your usual features packed into it with all the frivolity of a match day mascot and none of the class.
Anyway, here’s the bit which I faithfully type out every time we have a fanzine on sale and every time a few days later someone will ask “where do you get yer fanzine from”
Well right here for a start from the Mudhuts Shop: Add link – http://www.mudhutter.co.uk/digital/item/98-mfe-issue-45
Or you can come and buy one off us at the match either on the bridge by the South/East Stand corner from 1pm or opposite Rigalettos and the West Stand from 2pm
Failing that it will be stocked in the following establishments from the weekend onwards: Sparks Newsagents, Wallgate; Waterstones, Wigan; Mesnes Road News; Robin Park Programme Van and the Brickmakers Arms on Woodhouse Lane
And lookout for our digital version to follow over at www.mudhutter.co.uk which literally hundreds of you have been downloading. Well, dozens. OK then maybe A DOZEN. And not even a Baker’s Dozen at that. But that’s cos you love print isn’t it? You get high off the pages and love to lick your thumb and softly turn them, caressing their inky goodness…..
And while I’m repeating myself:
YES IT’S STILL £2
NO IT’S NOT A POUND, IT HASN’T BEEN SINCE A POUND SINCE 2003
NO IT’S NOT THE PROGRAMME
YES WE CAN CHANGE A TWENTY SO LONG AS YOU DON’T MIND IT IN COINS
