    No town embraces the pie like Wigan. If you ever follow “life of pies” twitter ( I just like looking at the pictures) you can see we’re obsessed with them, and rightly so!

    A good pie is a pastry chalice sent from heaven. Or even better, Gents bakery in Standish.

    Me too. I think it is a bit of harmless fun, and what other purpose do the ‘mascots’ serve. I heard that it was designed by 2 kids, which is nice. What ever, for me it is a million times better than the last 2. They simply disturbed me.

    Truth is a lot of mascots have a “connection” with the club it represents. For eg, Liverpool’s mascot is a Liver bird, west ham’s has a hammer head & so on. Pies are associated with Wigan.

    I loved springy/JJ. I never really understood stripey or those 2 weird looking things. I never really understood the connection to Wigan. A pie however……

    That’s a pasty Jimmy lad ours is the real McCoy.

    Pies are our identity our birthright and the staple diet of the true Wigganer.

    It’s a comforting fact knowing especially when a long way from home that you are fluent in Wiganese and partial to a pie on a barm.And however bad the food may be in far flung places you can close your eyes and imagine the delicious taste of a good old fashioned meat and prater pie squashed on a buttered barm. Utopia.

    Yeah, those last 2 weird things ….. they upset me!!! Sort of. I don’t really want to say what they reminded me of here for fear of upsetting others but they were a bit like the foetus of an alien. They were disturbing!

    Cracking piece of publicity work, on the eve of the season. Thats how I see it.

    4000 away fans singing “what the f is that?” May see it differently. Ha ha.

    Summat for the kids.
