I posted this also on the Main Forum but as an ex Oldham fan (Ganley, Davies, Turner era)  I really cannot understand the Doom and Gloomers.    Especially from Oldham.     Oldham RL are a sleeping giant and under Mr Hamilton they will stay asleep.   

 

Dr K  is a breath of fresh air and although I am disappointed he is looking at Latics for Mrs Koukash to take a stake in the Roughyeds would be great.

 

He may also be looking to buy control of the Oldham Chron - (is it still Hirst Kidd & Rennie ?) & then he will print his own publicity.

 

A MAJOR man and dont doubt his willingness to upset a few dinosaurs along the way.

Yes I was joking re the Chron though I will put the idea to him.

 

Of course you can have an interest in 2 clubs.  Gary & Kath Hetherington had Leeds & Hull for many years - its all about using the family.

 

Be more positive especially if they get involved.  He has been a breath of fresh air at Salford.

 

Surely you want to see change at Oldham?

You are wrong chum.   They held controlling share interests.  Gary via Paul Caddick & Kath outright.   Stop fighting this and welcome him.

Agree but Mr & Mrs Koukash are different persons.   It will be great for Oldham if it comes off.  Lobby Mr Hamilton please.

My personal view is that if Mr Koukash wants to invest in Oldham RL in any way then we should welcome that.

could be a breath of fresh air in my opinion.

 

spud, maybe he would be able to take over the club by making us part of Salford.  He would only own 1 club then and we would be part of Salford.

 

heard we'll be playing at salford next season and will probably mean the end of whitebank.

Can't see us playing at Salford for any reason, it would be the death knell it's to far,even worse than Sedgley Park and to difficult to get to for fans.

 

If Mr Koukash is on the verge of buying the Latics and interested in us surely that would solve any problems at Boundry Park that would make sense

I don't think the Red Devils own the City of Salford Stadium do they? Or do they? I don't know for sure.

I think if any other RL team was going to share it would be Swinton.

You lot will be back at Boundary Park and in the Super League post hast of he starts throwing money around.

Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for and in this case it all sounds wonderful, but do we have any inkling of what is really behind all this?

That said however, sometimes you have to grab things while you can and if the choice is between grabbing what's allegedly on offer or the status quo then I'm for grabbing it while we can.

wonder if the doctor is a hairnets fan and his timing is designed to upset our play off preparations ;-)

won't surprise me if we hear nothing again about this...



as simon corney said upon hearing of koukash's plan to buy both clubs and building a new stadium...he said "erm...we've not heard off him for 3months"
