Latics favourite Jimmy Bullard, Wales midfielder Lee Evans, Latics legend Tommy Gore and the man of the moment Reece James all feature on the latest episode of our podcast.
Show Notes

Of course, we all know there are in fact two Reece James, the 2015-16 and 2017-18 Sky Bet League One winning left full back, and our three-time Currys PC World Carphone Warehouse, Wigan Player of the Month, right back on loan from Chelsea.

Slightly confusing for some, but what isn't in question is the latter's impact at Latics since his arrival from Stamford Bridge this summer.

The 18-year-old, who celebrates his 19th birthday on Saturday ahead of Latics' clash with Derby County at the DW Stadium, claimed his third consecutive Player of the Month award in November, a month in which he scored his first goal, a stunning free kick against Leeds United.

We caught up with Reece in episode 17 and spoke to Latics legend and Wish FM co-commentator Tommy Gore about the full-back's exploits.

Lee Evans joined us on the phone to talk recent form, Derby County and the busy Christmas period ahead, whilst Jimmy Bullard spent some time with Guy Clarke up at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre after his visit to Euxton with Soccer AM to film You Know the FIFA Drill with Evans and Josh Windass.

Plus, John Hill from Coral joins us on the line to discuss the latest goings on in the Championship, with a look ahead to the weekend.
