Like Andykenny,I first went to watch Oldham in 1964,aged 8.In those days,we supported the club first and foremost,more so than the team :players came and went (just changed the names on my rattle!!)Even when the club let go great players like Kevin Taylor,Martin Murphy and Terry Flan,you still believed that it was better for the club,that the club acted with integrity.This level of (let`s call it ) TRUST is NIL and it will not come back while CH has any dealings with the club.CH`s lack of managerial competence is literally unbelievable as is his `care` for his customers.
So,I`m like Harry,Andy,exref : a stayaway.Yes,I`m interested in how the team does but am not supporting the club as owned by CH.The worst thing is that the longer stayaways stay away,the more not going becomes a habit and you find other things to do.So,while I appreciate all the hard work being put in by the players,I don`t share the optimism voiced by some others : I think that better performances on the field won`t result in a big increase in attendances -it`ll be marginal at best.
Some time ago,there were calls for the `negative` people to stop posting on the Forum : I can understand that and this is my first mail since.However,this present example of treatment of loyalty from CH is crass,immoral and totally devoid of any feeling for supporters.As johninoz says : what`s happening to a once proud club ?
Same here Raff and well said. :-)
