Who's picking the bl----y team Alan Hunte, and what do we want Salford stiffs for anyway, Hedley Jackson could probably provide us with better.
We are teamed up with a super league team who couldn't even give London Broncos a game so what use are their cast offs to us.
Oldham signed players for an OLDHAM TEAM.

We saw the fruits of a dedicated TEAM first time v Rochdale, we are now busy dismantling this. Don't worry though Salford will be ok.
Just a thought. Ian Talbot, Rochdale coach is employed by saints? Is Naylor the same we may ask.
We might find signings next season hard to come by

But no one and I repeat no one has yet come to terms with Dual Registration because last week was the first game under the new situation.
Who knew that by the end of last weekend Salfords coach would be sacked? never mind what decent players would be available to Oldham. I was as gutted as anyone after driving down to Wrexham last Sunday but please give the lads a break. They have their reputations and the club at heart and I don't see Scott (Nobby) or Spanner letting anyone down if they can help it.

1. Pretty meaningless competition
2. VERY uninviting field (that some dare call a stadium) that the game is being played on.
3. No real interest in Salford v Saints
Sorry to be the pessimist after 45 years or so watching the Roughyeds but I really do think the (semi) professional game outside SL is in terminal decline and I don't really have much enthusiasm for watching a slow death.

I have no idea what the detail is regarding the link-up with Salford .The general view seems to be that Salford will be able to dictate team selection regarding DR players but maybe Scott Naylors one and only priority for the season is to get promotion and all his efforts are being channelled in that direction .
Its such a short season that it may not be possible to recover from a poor start so maybe he is prepared to sacrifice the Trains cup matches to look at as many options as possible , including the DR players which might be at his disposal , so that come the start of the league campaign he has a fit and healthy squad to choose from and he knows his best starting 17.
The reality is we simply don't know at the moment but it will be interesting to see how the Oldham players react. If there is any unrest in the camp we can draw our own conclusions ...however if not ....

I am not privvy to the agreement but the 4 DR trained Thursday & Saturday and I am not persoally sure they were better than the lads left out but i'd rather find out in the trainspotters cup than in the league.
Then why were the four Salford lads put into the final 17 after only one training session? Where they better than the four Oldham lads who were left out? Or does the agreement state the have to go in????

The problem at this club remains as unfathomable and inscrutible as ever.
My friend and faithful fan Geoff must be tearing his hair out....
As for the Rochdale game a quiz ....
Quis confluxus hodie Academicorum? E longinquo convenerunt, Protinusque successerunt... Its a pertinent question at Oldham Rugby League these days!

What I do know is I pay my money to watch the product on the pitch .. I don't spend the best part of 2 hours banging on about the lack of faciiities at Whitebank any more than I admire my surroundings in some empty state of the art stadium . Thats not to say that I am not bothered about Whitebank but if you don't get the performance right on the pitch then Whitebank will always be empty no matter what the facilities are like ...and something I do know for sure is we will not get promotion if we do not earn it first on the pitch.
As for your quiz question it may well be pertinent to you but maybe it would be more appropriate on University Challenge than this fans forum .
