Elsewhere one of Latics’ derby day heroes Lee McCulloch talks about life at Rangers, how much he misses being a Wigan Athletic player and why travelling supporters may want to keep their eyes peeled!
Roger Espinoza gives his thoughts on the draw for next year’s World Cup as well as his predictions for who will lift the famous trophy, James McClean tells us his favourites which include Friends, Thomas Muller and Football Manager, and Nicky Eaden and Gareth Farrelly feature in the latest edition of Swapping Shirts.
