In 1972, Hunter Davies wrote one of the defining sports books, The Glory Game, in which he chronicled a season from inside a leading football club -- Tottenham Hotspur. Now, three decades on, and with the Football League now the money-spinning Premiership, Ed Jones has been granted similar access all areas to the latest, and perhaps oddest recruit to the top flight: Wigan Athletic. When Hunter Davies was writing The Glory Game, Wigan were still a non-league club. For the first time in their existence, they're rubbing shoulders with the big boys, kicking off with a home game against Chelsea and finishing with an away trip to Arsenal. In between, Ed Jones will be chronicling what it is really like behind the scenes of a Premiership club -- from the players to the tea ladies, the dug out to the chairman's helicopter.
