This post is a shoutout to Barry AKA Worbo, host and editor of the Progress With Unity Podcast. Often it may seem there is little point attempting to keep on topic, for when seven shouty(ish) blokes sit round a table to talk about Wigan Athletic, conversation naturally drifts to biscuits and officials who would be better off walking the streets at 5am. Ah, good old Kevin Friend! Although he probably won’t ref any of our matches this season, we will continue to creatively manufacture (deliver?) postman puns to help fill dead air between moaning.
Noticing a theme of irrelevance here? The sport is scarcely about football these days, even with upwards of 180 minutes of the stuff involving Wigan taking place per week this season. Why do you think the Mud Hutter has a print run of 400+? At least, I assume it does. Another shout out for the Mud Huts Football Express, by the way.
Wow, this blog is becoming more like a radio phone-in show by the day. Might as well say hello to my Mum and Dad at this rate, and can’t forget the dog! But now comes the real audio content, so grab those cans (headphones, you dirty so-and-so) and ready your ‘disgusted’ face.
Contents: Middlesbrough review (0:00); Phantom bookings! (8:00); Transfer rumours (20:00); Nottingham Forest preview (30:05)
Progress With Unity is currently the only Wigan Athletic fan podcast on the web. If you wish to get involved or have any topics you’d like to be discussed, please get in touch with Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org, marking your email PWU Podcast.
If you’re the slightest bit interested, those wonderful guys at PWU have provided iTunes, RSS and app pages for you to wrestle with. They might be difficult to fathom, but they’re a darn sight more appealing than the prospect of five rounds in the mud pit with Grant ‘Haystacks’ Holt. And before you think about exploiting his weakness and attacking that dodgy knee, be aware those scriptwriters won’t let him lose. Holt *never* loses.
