Well, onwards and upwards and back to talking about the game. The lads trained at Salford this weekend.It will be no pushover against Oxford, they've got some big lads and will of course want to do well against most of their old team.I'm hoping TB gets a good reception as he did his best with the old squad they just weren't quite up to it.

 

Oldham by 12 points I think but expect an early rally from Oxford but expect us to come through in the end.Need forwards to hold their own, we've got pace out wide but have been a bit suspect there under pressure in recent games.

We've already lost at home in the league....losing again would put us right in the mire for promotion....the pressure is on us to get a result...

Another step backwards!!!!!!!

 

I am disappointed, fed up and bewildered with this level of performance.

 

Not good enough. SIMPLE

 

Played two at home and lost two at home, one win in the league is simply unacceptable !!!!

 

SORT IT OUT AND NO EXCUSES !

 

Regards

 

Totally ****** Off!

Its been a long time since I posted on this forum , and before i get the critiscism from the poor souls who still waste their money on Chris Hamiltons pension fund ,yes I have not been to a game in a while and have no intention of attending a game in the near future but  I have to ask can this once proud club get any lower . Surely this is the last season of Professional rugby league in the town . Sad sad sad sad sad sad  .

At the end of the day you cannot send out a team of youngsters and only one experienced playmaker and expect miracles. This game, and it's return game, were always going to be difficult because of the sacking of Benson and the signings of ex Oldham players who everyone said weren't good enough. These boys are not going to get us promoted, and the sooner people realise that Hamilton is just keeping the club going on the cheap the better. If he had real aspirations to get promoted he would have made sure that we had more experience in the key positions. He has no such aspirations and that makes me totally cheesed off. We are an embarrassment to the town, the game of rugby league and, most importantly, the memory of what we once had.

On a par with Fridays game. No evidence of game plan or structure. Poor decisions on subs and little evidence of either teams coaches being proactive to changing game conditions.

What's the answer? Seriously were would you start. Hamilton doesn't take the field the players do, are the players not good enough? The coach? Or does Hamilton need to find investment for better players.

Unbelievable scoreline.

I was an enthusiastic supporter throughout my teenage years in the 1970s,before relocating and establishing career and family elsewhere,but have always looked for Oldham in the results section of news media. So,the decline isn't a huge surprise,as it's been persistent for many years.

It was only a few weeks ago that I read about Oxford,Hemel and Gloucester joining the RL....I remember Hemel when Bob Brown started them in the early 1980s....I was involved in the Southern ARL at the time with Peckham...and was amazed to read Oxford had a club in the same league as Oldham.

Fast forward to today,and I saw the scoreline on the BBC website. Oldham beaten at home,by Oxford. Truly shocking. An all time low?

Fantastic news for Oxford,and developing RL outside the traditional heartland,but a tragedy for Oldham.

Well,I've got my good memories of Bob Irving,Martin Murphy,Tug Wilson,Kevin Taylor,Frank Foster,Mike Elliot, Mick McCone and many other grafters back in the day. Doubt today's supporters will have the pleasure of looking back with a smile on their face when remembering how it was.

Always the optimist, at least Rochdale lost so in reality today has cost us little. Oxford were always going to be up for this game for obvious reasons. We were short of agression up front today I thought. Naylor and Spanner will reflect on this and maybe shake things up for the next game.Neither will take this defeat lying down.

 

Must keep getting behind the lads and the coach.Nothing else will achieve anything.

Know where you are coming from. I don't post on forums as a rule, being content to lurk in the background and read all the informed, and not so informed comment. 

 

But l come from the days of watching Ganley, Davies, Stirrup, Noon, Little, Pitchford, and the like. I cannot imagine the pain that fellow long term / and not so long term supporters are feeling at the demise of our once great club. At least l have my memories from the fifties.
