PWU Wigan Athletic Podcast No. 140: Ceefax of life

League table

Teletext isn’t as good these days because they can’t fit a whole league table on two subpages. Grumble grumble. (c)BBC

Well, it’s up there. Not my blood pressure, but the teletext league table! Ten weeks into the season, Ceefax (or whatever they call it these days) print their first (meaningful) listings of the season, and I just so happened to spot them this week. I mean, come on – anyone would get remote control trigger happy during the boring parts of BBC News!

Ordinarily, the launch of the Ceefax table brings bloodshot and sleep deprived eyes monitoring a manager’s every move, waiting for the right time to unleash an over-deliberated collection of playground insults (ooh, remind you of anything?). If eyes could speak, that is.

Words are cheap, even if web hosting generally isn’t, and Progress With Unity is more than happy to provide you with a veritable travelling concession stand of budget brand delights.

Wigan Athletic have arrived at the first major station of their Land’s End to John O’ Groats ‘Pastry Express’ train tour, but who will the conductor throw off? Who forgot to buy a peak time ticket? And why the Donervon Daniels don’t they have wi-fi access here?! Find out tonight on… not the PWU Podcast, because we couldn’t secure the online rights. Instead, listen to this grimace-inducing tone for 60 minutes…

It’s that time of the month again! Nope, it isn’t time for Highland Fling practice at the Monaco Ballroom, but the pocket of shame I like to call JWAW Errata.

For those filling my spam folder (blasted heavy metal umlaut filter) with comments regarding Jussi’s nationality, I promise I will stop making the joke about him being Icelandic when he’s actually Finnish. I suppose it’s much like when people brand you a Mancunian just because you ‘live in Greater Manchester’ – blooming irritating. In my defence, however, I don’t believe there are many supermarket chains named ‘Finland’, which is slightly disappointing for a small time internet weblogger.

OK, I’ll admit it: I screwed up. Take these PWU Twitter, iTunes, RSS and app pages and forget the whole thing ever happened, alright? It was an awful joke anyway. Look, here are some highlights to help you move on…

Posh Latics highlights, wot wot
