PWU Wigan Athletic Podcast No. 160: Fit in or blast off

Mars rocket

They must have used one heck of a selfie stick for this photo.

Question: How long does it take to get to Mars?

Answer: After a low scoring draw with Bradford, a thumping victory over Swindon, a last minute winner against Rochdale, a boring 0-0 with Coventry, a gutbusting thriller at the Pirelli Stadium, a premature promotion party at Blackpool and a tense final day win to secure automatic promotion on goal difference.

Then, the arrival of eight new players plus one high profile £5m sale to balance the books. A shaky start to a new Championship season with Jussi Jaaskelainen’s place under threat from new signing Roy ’53 Years Young’ Carroll…

Actual answer: If the ExoMars schedule is to be trusted, about 7 months.

“Well, I wish you’d just told me that in the first place.”

It’s wonderful to see that Northern Ireland boss Mikey O’Neill is still a Latic at heart. Instead of calling up Billboard Grigg for the forthcoming friendly with Wales and Slovenia, he’s invited Billy Mckay to warm his various slinter-ridden benches. The difference? Well, one Latic is in the middle of a very long and somewhat anonymous loan spell at Dundee United, the other is in the middle of a scoring streak that could push Wigan Athletic to automatic promotion from League One.

Not to sound biased or selfish or anything.

…Wait, what do you mean it’s because Grigg has a niggling hamstring injury?!

(Only kidding… I think.)

Bonus Game: Where’s Sharpy?

Where's Sharpy?

Can you see him, huh?

To be continued in this week’s Wigan Evening Post 12th Man… perhaps.
