With our all new German style efficiency the latest issue of the Mudhutter hits the streets this weekend with 48 pages of carefully thought out prose and pictures from Wigan’s finest selection of helmets.

A more pensive, reflective, provocative, expensive, selective, creative, primitive, vegetative pamphlet you could not wish to acquire if you are so that way inclined.In this issue we pay tribute to Jason Roberts and Britpop, talk Pies and Poetry, and reminisce over Wigan Casino, internet message boards and local history. We cast our eyes over the FA Cup semi final and preview the run in and just what that man Rosler has got in store. Looking back, looking forwards and taking stock of where we are.

48 pages as ever by the fans, for the fans. Every issue see the same old contributors in their twenties to their fifties augmented by new faces putting pen to paper to extol the virtues of Wigan, Wigan Athletic or indeed any topic of their choosing like a council estate version of Mastermind. Putting pen to paper, from the heart, for you the selective, intelligent minority of Wigan Athletic supporters who like to read and take in what someone has bothered to write rather than doing all the talking.

And with that I’ll shut up. Apart from to say that you can buy both the printed and the new-fangled digital versions from the following links –
