Wasn't around pre 70's so I can only comment on coaches after then. For me Frank Myler brought some success so he's my number one. Followed by Tony Barrow and Eric Fitsimmons , both trophy winners with the 2nd division premierships. Of the modern era no two ways about it.... mike Ford. Nearly got us back into Superleague. But what are your memories? Mal Graham? Peter Smethurst? Tony Benson? Bob Lindner? Andy Goodway?

Tactically and methodically I thought Steve Deakin was a good coach but from what I've heard his man management let him down a little.

I thought John Pendelbury was doing well with his limited resources before he jumped shipped so early

Tony Barrow was the man for me. Obviously since the formation of the new club only one man Mike Ford, hope Scott does as well given time.

I suppose its objective. Frank Myler had a lot of success, but he also had a lot of resources. Since the new club was formed Mike  Ford obviously comes to mind, I personally did not like the style of play we played under him. Our highest finish was under Steve Molloy, again the argument might be, he had the resources.

Steve Molloy did it under massive turmoil at the club. Ford left, kicked out at BP and then Harbin left to go to Latics. Molly took the role and did a fantastic job under pressing cirmumstances whilst playing at Ashton United.

one of the major resources was a fantastic colts team and A team.

Indeed and when you think who came out of that Colts tea. Andy Goodway, Mick Worrall, Terry Flanagan, Paddy Kirwan, Ray Ashton.

maybe we should have listed the late Brian Gartland as the best coach.

Yes he also brought my favourite ever Oldham player to the club. Bob Irving.

Is this the same JP who lived in Leigh and "jumped ship" because he found it harder to travel to Oldham than Halifax.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to wind you up.

 

Are you saying JP moved from Halifax to Wigan, then from Wigan to Oldham, then back to Wigan.

 

I never knew that.
