So who's on this week's episode?

Will Grigg

Getting to Know You is back with a familiar voice and face of everyone's favourite goal scorer, but this time Will takes us into his life, his likes and dislikes, his soft spot for musicals and animated movies and how Michael Jacobs is one of the true jokers in the dressing room.

Tommy Gore and Noel Ward

Two of the eleven men to carry the flag into the EFL in 1978, Tommy Gore and Noel Ward reveal what it was like to turn full time, the atmosphere in the dressing room moments before our first ever league game against Hereford United and how Noel almost missed the match because of a broken nose.

Josh Windass

A deadline day signing from Rangers FC, Josh Windass tells us about his Latics debut against Aston Villa, the underestimated environment of Scottish football and how disappointment as a young footballer at Huddersfield Town set him up to be the player and man he is today.

Lee Evans

Back where he always wanted to be, Lee Evans chats to Guy Clarke about his return at Villa Park and how he's delighted to be back working for Paul Cook and his team.
