You'll have to make do with the Double stand for now.

I remember watching Oldham v Warrington in a Lncashire Cup game there, and some Wires fans beating the cr** out of some oldham fans using his crutches in the top of that stand

The old 3d stand from the Boulevard has to be there. It has to be before they tacked on the prawn sandwich boxes though.

Didn't have seats in the top tier when I used to go in it. I can't think of any other stand that had top tier standing.

In fact, at the time (early to middle 80s), was Watersheddings the only RL ground that have covered accommodation on all 4 sides?

started watching oldham late 80's. did the stand opposite the main stand once have cover? if so why did the get rid of it? or did it just fall down like the rest of it?

Didn't Barrow have covered accomodation on all four sides in the 80's?

Yes. It must have been taken down for safety reasons. Was just the terracing left as there was a proper stand containing seating at one time? To be frank, neither of the side grandstands looked particularly safe by the 80s. I remember at one game a spectator was taken ill in the grandstand and the stretcher was passed over the heads of people in the paddock below. Scary stuff.
