Before i start this is not a pop at our near neighbours, who we would be a lot less off without.

The forecast is not good for Sunday (Cold & Rain)
I am trying to gather with the weather in mind and the current facilities and pitch view at Whitebank. How many Hornets fans simply do not consider travelling down the A627M to watch the lads due to these reasons?

Just bring a step trainer with you and you may be able to see over the front row brollies on the Whitebank road side of the pitch, hope the stewards let you in with it!

Improvements to the ground are under consideration....

what this means to the average loyal fan is extremely difficult to ascertain....

I will be there what ever the weather.
There can be only so long they can carry on to play at Whitebank before the RFL says no more.The facilities are poor for the viewing of the match and they must stop a lot of fans both home and away from attending matches
Success does not consists in never making blunders,but in never making the same one the second time.

My point exactly BoroHornet, i will say it again, this isnt an Oldham bashing thread, but i was without hesitation going on Sunday to support our lads, then i checked the weather and found myself questioning whether to go or not.

Its a real shame, i would hate to be an Oldham fan as i would have probably given up going by now if i was, at least we only have to go 2-3 times a season.
Im pretty certain i will be there, if only to support the lads on Sunday. Ill just make sure i take an orange crate to stand on, and some waterproof gear and a flask.

I just wanted to gauge how other Hornets felt, it must come into there descision making on the day.

I don't think I'll be going, I can't stand for that long and it looks unlikely Hornets fans will be allowed to transfer to the seated area as its reserved for Biffs season ticket holders.

Mr Pooing Dog

Away supporters do manage to get seats in the "stand" ! The seats are not all reserved for Season Ticket holders.

It will be cold and windy tho!
