Wembley, London: Goal line technology is readied for Sunday. (c)Tom Jolliffe
Earlier this year an inconceivable FA Cup victory, last week a stonking start to the Championship campaign, this week a visit from the Prime Minister. This little town is really moving up in the world for the correct reasons. And then you have the PWU Podcast, but the less said about that, the better.
The football season already back in full swing, a wide variety of topics stretch this edition to just over an hour. Mick returns from a one-week ‘suspension’ to report on Latics newspaper coverage north of the border (i.e. the one separating Wigan and Lancastershire), there’s a new signing to be sworn in plus all the politics surrounding the world’s most prestigious season opener. I’ll shut up because you might want to give this your full attention, so get your listening ears and drinking flagon(s) out *now*.
Contents: Barnsley review (0:00); ‘Unsavouriness’ (8:10); Celtic connections (14:00); Jimmy Mac Mk III (27:00); PWU Community Shield Preview Show (37:00); Video/goal line technology circus (46:34); Man U predictions (54:00)
Progress With Unity is currently the only Wigan Athletic fan podcast on the web. If you would like to get involved or have any topics you’d like to be discussed for the new season of PWU Podcasts please get in touch with Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org, marking your email PWU Podcast.
Follow the ins and outs (ooh er) of both the transfer window and extracurricular activities of PWU participants with handy PWU iTunes, RSS and app pages ready to be bookmarked at your leisure. I’ll be posting all episodes here on Thursday evenings as usual this season, so make today your PWU day! Or just have a bath, whatever suits you best. Personally I like to fold my favourite underpants on Thursdays, so if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in the washing room. Until Sunday, keep eatin’ those pies, ‘Ticsmen.
