A potent reminder that things aren’t THAT bad….. Welcome to Wigan Athletic, and welcome to your worst nightmares: a room full of the most terrible players to wear the hallowed blue and white. We’re up to O in our alphabetically organised cornucopia of dross, and there’s a fair old contest going on. So let’s look […]
There’s always flaws with statistical analysis, and also how you choose to carry out and measure your research. And so it appears that should you be a former Wigan Athletic player whose surname begins with N, chances are you were a back up keeper or another short stay visitor. So it’s a very small pool […]
The latest Pie at Night podcast is online and features tales of sporting excellence, goalkeeping woes and scurrilous rumours aplenty. The regulars are joined once more by Luke aka @WeahsCousin who is taking a break from making stuff up on the internet to talk about Latics’ current plight. We deal the important matters of the […]
And this time we suspect some foul play and vote rigging going on. Yes it’s time again for the Wigan Athletic Room 101 or as it’s charmingly often referred to “The Emporium of Sh**e”.
We’re back with another Emporium of S***e and L is the letter under our alphabetically based scrutiny today. Seems strange how we’re on the brink of relegation and so few of the current crop are being chucked in, there’s time yet I suppose.
We’ve been building up to this for a while. Regular readers and listeners will be aware of our feature where we discuss those Wigan Athletic players who covered themselves in something less illustrious than glory and the letter K has generally been thought of a fiercely anticipated contest.
Time for the latest instalment of our ‘celebration’, if indeed that is the right word, of those players who not only let the fans down, their fellow players down but most importantly they let themselves down whilst wearing the hallowed blue and white of Wigan Athletic. Unfortunately, we don’t get off to the best of […]
Chris was doing a bit of house-keeping here at tPAN Towers this morning and it turns out that we completely forgot to give you the results of our Latics Hall of Shame vote for the letter H. I suppose it’s hardly surprising that we did, we’ve had the Christmas do, actual Christmas and New Year […]
Time for another round of Emporium of Sh*** and this time its time to talk about the letter G with absolutely no mention of players whose name ends in “Omez” Ian goes with the somewhat left field choice of Sean Garnett a former Tranmere stopper from the mid 90s who failed to do much in […]
But to be fair we didn’t specify which Caldwell. Yes it’s the Wigan Athletic Emporium of S**te time again with the letter C up next, and Chris wastes no time throwing in our current manager for that penalty miss and the one he gave away in the play offs at Loftus Road. Not to mention […]
It is with no great delight that we bring you the second instalment of our Wigan Athletic “Emporium of S***e” where we discuss those players who didn’t exactly cover themselves in glory whilst wearing the illustrious blue and white. The latest episode covered players whose surname begins with B and Jimmy immediately attempted to cheekily […]
I think it’s fair to say that everything is going well at Wigan Athletic right now. But that doesn’t mean we can’t cast our eye back over years gone by when some real dross wore the famous blue and white. So it came to pass that we launched a new feature on the Pie At […]
