Job done

Job done

Job done – that will no doubt be the overriding feeling as Wigan Athletic take to the pitch at the DW for the final time this Sunday. It’s been quite the turnaround over the last month, Latics looked to be staring down the barrel following the last minute defeat against Hull but truly turned it

The Pie at Night return

The Pie at Night return

The Pie at Night return, sounding slightly more inebriated than last time as we do the second half of a double header in the marvellous Wigan Central. We start with some ridiculously out of date football chat, but that’s never stopped us before. There’s some Easter chat, which inevitably moves on to chippy chat before

The long walk

The long walk

Last Sunday, I drove to Leeds and back and went in loads of pubs. I didn’t even have a drink in any of them, which is something of a miracle for me, I just drove over hill after hill for 58 miles. Next Wednesday marks the start of a mammoth walk from Wigan (well Euxton)

Am I bovvered?

Am I bovvered?

Indeed. Where do we go from here? It depends on your point of view and general leaning in life I suppose. But if you’re looking to me for words of wisdom then look elsewhere (nothing new there!) as I simply don’t know. I have continued to put my weight behind Paul Cook when others have

The art of falling over

The art of falling over

Oh look who’s back, and not before time. Jimmy, Alan, Chris and Martin spend a few hours in Wigan Central back after some diverse travails involving Abba nights, Ska punk, the British Pie Awards and racing against bus station speed cameras. Recorded on a mobile phone because Al forgot the mike (sorry for the noise

A brief statement from #TeamCook

Good afternoon from the rapidly diminishing camp known as Team Cook. I’ve never been afraid of being contrary, and not just for the sake of it either. There is considerable angst being poured out towards the fine manager of Wigan Athletic right now, and here begins a brief and potentially shortlived case for the defence.

The Winner takes it all on Saturday

The Winner takes it all on Saturday

The loser’s standing small, or so the song goes…..and it remains to be seen how Saturday’s crunch encounter will end up. Either way, this is your last chance to celebrate the night or drown your sorrows via the medium of song and dance as All About Abba, featuring exiled Wiganer, Penky come to Wigan Cricket

Win at all costs

I spoke last week about it being a crucial week for Paul Cook’s Wigan Athletic – two games against play-off chasing sides and our only game in hand on the chasing pack below us. Sadly it was a week that didn’t deliver much. One point from two games where we really could have done with

A slightly underwhelmed 12th Man

A slightly underwhelmed 12th Man

Is it possible to be just whelmed? At Saturday’s game, I was mostly underwhelmed, never overwhelmed but by the end I just felt distinctly whelmed. Even the most dour of games can sometimes be injected into life with a thrilling finish, yet even that fell short somewhat.  Quite why we played so poorly against the
