MFE 62 – The Third Day One

2017-04-07T10:27:18+00:00

It’s that time again, time for another Mudhutter to hit the streets. And as ever, we give you an irreverent mix of the past, present and future. There’s certainly plenty of deliberation as to how we’ve got to where we are and what the landscape may look like next season.

We also take a look at other subjects as random as Sir Bradley Wiggins, Steely Dan and 1874 Northwich, plus we look at what we’re expecting from candidates hoping to fill the privileged role of being the next manager of Wigan Athletic. Plus there’s the usual regular features: Bagg, Topping, Tat and the usual generous serving of p1ss taking and p1ss boiling spewing forth from Mudhuts Towers. Well, would you expect anything else?

We’re selling at the ground on Saturday before the game in our usual spots and there will be copies in the usual stockists at some point over the weekend: Sparks Newsagent, Waterstones, Brickmakers Arms, Mesnes Road and the Northern Beer Temple.

You can also buy online in either print or digital format from RIGHT HERE

As for the cover? Cryptic, foreboding or just a pure wind up. Well, we’ll let you decide. But we’re not going to let the opportunity for an Easter based gag to pass us by…

MFE 61 – The Should Have Retired By Now One

2017-04-07T10:25:40+00:00

Yes, we’re passed the age at which women used to be allowed to retire, and yet we’re still going strong. Ish.

A surprisingly upbeat issue, all things considered. It would have been positively euphoric had we not gone to press just before we managed to beat Wolves away.

Go on, buy it, you know you want to.

The cover is courtesy of one of our match day sellers, who trollies around twitter all day pretending to be a house husband when he’s really just lazy. Thanks to @elbalson anyway

MFE 60 – The 60 for 60 One

2016-12-01T09:45:09+00:00

For the 60th issue of the Mudhutter, we decided to push the boat out and make it 60 pages and all at no extra cost to you, our loyal and faithful readers.

What we didn’t realise was that we’d be having our third farewell cover in 12 months. This time we say goodbye to a man who, despite only spending a couple of years at Latics, became one of out greatest legends.

A man whose attitude epitomised what it means to be a Latics fan, RIP, Bobby lad.

MFE 59 – The Keep Calm and Don’t Read Twitter One

2016-10-21T12:07:14+00:00

Twitter, as ever, is alive with bellends calling for Gary Caldwell’s head.

Read the Mudhutter instead, you’ll be better off for it. Despite plenty of effort to change the situation to the contrary, we still have the best collection of writers this side of Parbold.

And, as usual, you can buy it in the best fanzine shop in Wigan.

MFE Issue 58 – The Caldwell Is Superman One

2016-08-12T19:56:22+00:00

The first issue of the new season – Issue 58 – is now on sale.

The fantastic cover art is courtesy of our good friend Menkfeck, AKA Tat.

Incidentally, when Steve Caldwell got wind of the cover, he tweeted that the head size was about right in proportion to the body. Brotherly love!

Anyway, Buy it Here

2016-05-05T21:34:13+00:00

Yes, on the day that this issue hits the streets, Wigan Athletic will be crowned Champions of Football League 1.

Bolton down, us up. It couldn’t be any sweeter.

Well, unless the rugby get relegated too.

MFE Issue 56 – The Orange One

2016-05-05T21:20:19+00:00

MFE 56 is hitting the shops (well the bridge and a few select outlets).

We have an exclusive interview with a favourite son of Latics. Yes, we interview ‘Arry prior to the Dutch Legends Vs Latics Legends match in May.

We also run a poll to see what statue the rugby men should put up at the DW.

Buy it now, you know you want to.

MFE Issue 54 – The Moderately Optimistic One

2016-10-21T11:42:47+00:00

We’re back and feeling very mid-table all round as the MK Dons of the fanzine world.

Some terrific stuff this time around. Lots of moaning too, mind you, but then to not have any would be like asking James Corden not to be an unfunny, fat bastard. It’s never happening.

As always, you can buy both printed and digikul versions in the shop.
