PWU Wigan Athletic Podcast No. 91: Back to school

Start line

The Wigan branch of the Evel Knievel society approaches Robin Park

If this is the ‘Back to School’ edition, I’d like more of the same for the rest of the season, please! Free toys, games and packets of cheesy corn snacks are on the menu for the fully grown men collecting at the local education centre. That’s the Beech Hill Book Cycle, not a primary school.

On the day Howard Webb followed Alex Ferguson into retirement, PWU began a new era of podcasts by… well, doing much the same as the previous two successful(?) seasons. Since the first saw FA Cup glory and the second a European tour, the only thing left for Latics to achieve under PWU’s reign is win the World Cup. So join us next month for an impromptu visit to Germany, suspicious-looking crowbar in hand…

But first, prepare thyself for the busiest day of the football calendar. That’s the calendar with Emmerson Boyce and Gary Caldwell holding the FA Cup on the front. And if that doesn’t get you fuelled up, only an episode of pre-season prattling will. C’mon!

Summer holiday

Mum! I want an ice cream! And a ride on a donkey! And 50p for the dodgems!

Are you ready now? Do you have your toothbrush and comb? I certainly hope so because once we set off, there is no turning back. Well, unless the caravan park is closed again, in which case you’ll have to stay over at Auntie Mabel’s while your mum and dad enjoy a ‘quiet’ weekend in Blackpool.

Here, I’ll download the latest edition of the Progress With Unity to your mp3 player using those ever-so-handy iTunes, RSS and app pages so you have something to listen to on the way. And if I hear you say ‘are we there yet?’ I shall remove your sundae privileges for precisely one month. Ice cream vendors go into hibernation in early September, so that’ll be it for this year. Nope, you can’t have a jelly baby pie! Such things don’t even exist…
