Just think, in a couple of years, when the Northern Powerhouse has sorted itself out and Northern Trains have managed to how to run a rail service, Leeds will just be up the road. It’ll be easier to get there than Leigh. But for now, it’s not. In fact, it’s way too much of a […]
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) […]
The time is upon us again: little ole’ Wigan Athletic are playing in the quarter final of the FA Cup. It was thirty one years ago when we faced Leeds United in the same round, with us being then as we are now, a League One team and Leeds, being then as they are now, […]
In the last podcast of the normal season, we talk to Leeds fan Rob who tells us “you want to see the state of our Leeds”. The truth is that they’re actually not quite in the worst shape they’ve ever been, though that doesn’t stop us poring over the army of managers they’ve had, Cellino […]

I was listening to the commentary on Tuesday night when co-commentator and Latics’ Head of Media, Ed Jones uttered the immortal words, “well I don’t think anyone can be critical of that performance”. I hope you didn’t log on to social media on the way home Ed!
Well, two out of three ain’t bad Yes somehow the Pie At Night crew have managed to get to 10 episodes and to celebrate we are joined by a very special guest in the form of Internet troll/prankster/sensation @WeahsCousin. More importantly for our benefit, our guest is also a Latics fan so we manage to […]
Ten? Ten?!? Yes, somehow we’ve managed to stumble into double figures on the episode count for “The Pie at Night Podcast”. As we hit our decade, we find out what happens if you cross Wigan’s newest internet [cough] sensation with a true twitter sensation as we are joined by the one and only @WeahsCousin.
