Right Honourable Tub of Lard MP

It's liable to scribble much the same opinionated nonsense as your small time internet weblogger.

Right Honourable Tub of Lard MP
It’s liable to scribble much the same opinionated nonsense as your small time internet weblogger.

They’re one Right Honourable Tub of Lard MP away from being a certain Friday evening BBC panel show. I’m of course talking about the delightful carousel of celebrity guests that is WISH FM, who have been covering for the absent Neill Rimmer with various employees of Wigan Athletic FC.

Don’t get me wrong – it must be said that dear Rimmsey has been a brilliant ‘game caller’ for both the club and our local FM radio station. But sometimes it’s good to hear a fresh voice – hey, lack of rotating panellists is the reason you stopped listening to the PWU Podcast many moons ago.

Ed Jones, Michael Jacobs and Jonathan Jackson have very capably assumed control of the co-commentator’s mic in the past month… but who’s gonna be next?

…Well, I can exclusively reveal that Children’s BBC presenter and Muppet wannabe Hacker T Dog is being primed to commentate on this Saturday’s game against Coventry! He last donned the sheepskin coat for a Belgium v Russia World Cup game in 2014, but has been ‘sucking many of Statman’s Uncle Joe’s’ in preparation for his big comeback.

And that’s where this blurb ends, because PWU knows all about sucking, and that was too close to the… er… bone.

Gary Caldwell, I note you ‘aren’t looking at the table‘ at this point, so please cover your eyes for this part. Let’s commemorate Latics reaching the League One summit with a celebratory teletext league table!

Teletext League One table 3 April 2016
Lookin’ good for the teletext league.

Last time we checked, Coventry were four points ahead of fifth placed Latics. Gillingham were top, while Burton lay in fourth:

I still had the same telly, though. Some things are destined never to change.
