I know this is going to be about the fourth time you’ve read this, but some things are worth saying more than once (or more than four times in fact).  Whether you want to contribute to an excellent cause, show that Latics fans are the disparate bunch of bickering bods, that everyone thinks we are, or just have a jolly good time, let me point you to Latics United and the attempt to raise money for a fellow Latics fan to get the help he needs.

Anthony is the son of Bernard Ramsdale, editor of the excellent Ye Olde Tree and Crown, virtual bar and repository for all things Latics related, but the cause is supported by all the major Latics websites, the club and we hope all Latics fans everywhere.
