What’s that, Chief O’Riley? The fiendish International Fixtures Man has been truncating the domestic calendar for those involved in Europa Cup ties again? This looks like a job for… the Affectionate Sarcasm Crew! No, Obscure References Man, you can’t be involved in this one. Stay here and sort our Doctor Who DVD collection into chronological as opposed to alphabetical order. Oh, and try not to let Acid Drool Mutt steal those banana peels from the waste paper bin again.

This fact warrants repeating: it’s funny how just four men can talk at such length about Wigan Athletic in a week devoid of domestic action. Gah, not you, Domestic Action Man! Return to your garden work post haste. And before I forget, see your doctor about the lack of articulation in your detached left arm for the sake of our emergency sellotape supply.

Before the clocks go back, there remains just enough time for one last visit to the seaside. I will not speak of the Illuminations, nor donkeys… at least not this evening. We’ll leave that for Saturday, eh?


Contents: International report (0:50); Reserve Watch and Park Chu-Young update (16:00); Mayowa Balagun (22:18); Maribor sell-out (25:45); Blackpool preview including StatMan (28:25); #FootballForAFiver (47:10); PWU summary of the season so far (49:30)

Hey, did you notice my frequent references to pies? There *were* far more but I suspect they’re populating the cutting room floor at this moment, to be scooped up and used in a forthcoming BBC3 comedy. Listen out for the caffeine and/or alcohol-induced canned laughter to tell you when to smile!

*Spontaneous applause from off camera*

Yes, Progress With Unity is now so famous I have a small crowd of students sat watching me type this post. Looks like people have been social networking the PWU iTunes, RSS and app pages with greater fervour than a contestant at the World Pie Eating Championships. Incidentally, check the ‘controversy‘ section of that Wikipedia link for evidence the internet still has a sense of humour. Heartening indeed.
