Wigan Athletic (H) Preview - Season 23/24, Episode 7

The wait goes on for a first win of the season for United in League One and while they've not been played off the park by anyone yet, the lack of goal threat remains a worry.

In this episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee and Mike look back on the narrow 1-0 loss at Oxford United - while it was a game with very limited goal-mouth action for either side, there was plenty of talking points, particularly when it comes to attack and formations - what kind of forward do the Blues need and is it maybe time to switch from the 3-5-2?

That's followed by a full look ahead to the midweek clash with Wigan Athletic, including a chat with Barry from the excellent Progress With Unity podcast - topics covered include their off the field issues in the last decade, Charlie Wyke's return from his heart issues and why a parking favour in the 90s didn't quite work out so well for Barry!

Alongside those bits, there is a round-up of the news, including some chat about the US takeover rumours, and the usual ex-Blues section.

Your host Lee Rooney is in Liverpool and is joined via the wonders of the internet by Mike Booth in Formby.
