PWU Wigan Athletic Podcast No. 159: Blame and misfortune

Apparently, last Friday wasn’t the 13th of March… but you could have fooled me. When Mike Pollitt steered his SUV into a poorly-placed brick wall, he set in motion a chain of events that rippled through the Latics goalkeeping staff, and eventually the whole team. Tactical switches became difficult to acclimatise to, before you knew it, two League One points had slipped through our particularly greasy gravy-stained fingers.

In a season of great luck with injuries, suspensions, signings and results, relatively minor misfortunes are magnified to such an extent they become lead paragraphs on small time internet weblogs.

But it hasn’t been a bad week overall, you know. The tenacious trio of Morsy, Jussi and Pearcey will be back fairly soon, while Stephen Warnock has also arrived to help Polyfilla the mouse hole. (Aaand now you know what household tasks I’ve been engaged in this past month…)

Fascinating fact: season-long loanman Warnock is from Ormskirk. And we have plenty more nuggets of fun on the PWU Podcast, that supposedly independent Wigan Athletic fan show thingy.

Bad Luck Duck

We’ll say Lee Nicholls got stuck in the mud.

Can’t you find it in your heart to forgive this poor little duckie? It is not his fault that his wall didn’t jump high enough to stop Marcus Maddison’s free kick. It is not his fault that the ball dipped at the very last minute, causing it to hit the net via an unsuspecting post. It is not his fault that they ran out of pies in the South Stand concourse at 3:48pm.

But the goal was his fault, I suppose.
