Why did we ever doubt it? Once again, Latics are punching (and in some cases kicking, but the less said of that the better) their way to a respectable position considering a season of largely average results. Sticking with the weather theme, it’s a bit like staying inside with a cup of cocoa while neighbours are frantically clearing their paths, then waiting for the snow to melt before sweeping away the discarded crisp packets and half-consumed bottles of Fanta.
With a bit of luck, you’ll be hearing similar (admittedly dodgy) analogies between now and the end of the campaign, hopefully involving that fabled trophy in town this afternoon. Speaking of which, did I mention there are less than nine days until the FA Cup semi finals?

The PWU banter continues over on Twitter at the @JesusIsAWiganer and @PWUPodcast accounts. The former is mine, despite the slight naming discrepancy – those of you who listened last week will know the tale of ‘too few characters’, but I’m already wasting too much bandwidth by repeating this for the umpteenth time this month. Better save space somehow… erm, right. PWU iTunes and RSS pages exist. Also, cheers.
