#3070682 Ambrose hotel

I would  not dispute with you everyone wants extra business but you obviously don't know the Ambrose, as an away fan you are made to feel very welcome with great banter  great food and nice people to boot.

 

Cant blame them for reminding us they are still there.

Perhaps the businesses in Barrow can do their advertising in their local paper rather than on an orlfc forum?

Your comment is totally disrespectful to the Ambrose and its staff,. I hope they don't class all the Oldham fans in the same bracket as yourself.

 

Thanks to the Ambrose for the offer Nice people and a nice place.




#3069295 Leigh 11 Roughyeds 10

Posted by higgy on 09 February 2015 - 03:55 PM

I noticed from the team sheet that there were quite a few Huddersfield players in our line up. Should we be excited about the possibility of seeing these players in our team. Or dissappointed that we are being used as a grazing ground for the SL players on the fringe of the Giants squad.

Got to agree I know we only have a small squad this year but If I want to watch Oldham I don't want to watch Huddersfield in disguise.

 

I thought the whole idea of friendlies was to get players match fit for the coming season, and we read that our squad is fit apart from one player so why are we using these Giants players and not giving signed squad players a game?




#3065000 Hamilton No Show at Swinton

If he was working at another club (even if for stadium company) on a Roughyeds match day, that is disgraceful. He has responsibilities and a duty to fulfill as Oldham chairman and that includes turning up on match day.

 

If he has to work there on the day of a friendly, what happens when the season starts properly. Is this situation going to arise every time Leigh are at home? If so he would rightly be in for further abuse from fans as and when he deemed it worthy to turn up for a game.

Got to agree with you on this its a disgrace, never mind how it looks to the fans what must the players and coaches be thinking if he can't turn up on a match day, and how does this look to our opponents officials.

Well done roughyedspud nice to see something constructive on here, instead of the negativity of some.




#3042999 Bad News from companies House

Posted by higgy on 09 December 2014 - 05:50 PM

You talk absolute rubbish for one Chris will never be my buddy and never would be. Who do you think would come in and start a new club if he did go?

Nor do think the supporters who still attend are lunatics but loyal Oldham not CH Supporters.

 

Without the existing supporters there would be no income for the club to pay the lads who give their all on the pitch to entertain the fans each week.

 

The root of problems lie with the RFL and their bad fixture organisation which has over the past seasons left the club with no regular income.

 

As I said earlier if you and yours feel so strongly about our doomed club organise  protests outside the ground on match days to force CH out? and lets see were that gets




#3042728 Bad News from companies House

Posted by higgy on 09 December 2014 - 07:41 AM

Are you for real if it wasn't for the lunatics left watching there  wouldn't be a club.  Its alright staying away in protest but what does that achieve?

 

I support the team on the field not the directors/director, my family have more reason than most to dislike CH but we do not go to watch or speak to him we go because we love the game and to support the lads week in/week out

 

No true supporter would stay away just because they dislike the man and is methods.

 

If you feel so strongly about him go to the ground and stage a protest against him instead of waffleing on here, but people haven't the guts to do so or so it seems

Great news following Sam. Got to agree we could do with a good big experienced prop or two now.


#2981516 Crucial time of the season

Posted by higgy on 22 August 2014 - 05:52 PM

Lunatic

Do you ever have anything positive or constructive to say??




#2981055 Crucial time of the season

Posted by higgy on 21 August 2014 - 03:45 PM

It is a crucial time of the season for what, no-one can deny, is a hard working, enthusiastic and dedicated set of players and coaching staff. As they prepare for the end-of-season, the least they deserve is the support of all who claim to be fans of Oldham RLFC. With that in mind, I suggest it is time to put the 'politcs' to one side until the end of our season and just talk rugby. What a welcome change that would be!!  

 

Of course, I expect that I will be labelled 'a lunatic' for this simple request, so no change there!

 

Anyway, the best of luck to Scott, Spanner and all the lads in the weeks ahead. They deserve it.   

 

COME ON THE ROUGHYEDS :biggrin:

Just watch them come out of the woodwork again should we get to the playoff final though.




#2962285 York v Oldham latest

Posted by higgy on 20 July 2014 - 05:10 PM

Don't think this matters this season as long as we get to the play off final and win that's all there is to play for, only the winner of the play off gets promoted  there is nothing for finishing top other than an home advantage.

 

Still having said that it's a poor performance today




#2947378 This forum.....

Posted by higgy on 20 June 2014 - 04:36 PM

To be honest there doesn't seem much to chat about this season, home games are few and far between (a month to the next home game ridiculous) and people are finding other things to do, and get out of the habit of going to the games.

 

I know of at least 6 people who were loyal supporters home and away who never attend games now




#2921569 Standard Cup Final

Posted by higgy on 26 April 2014 - 06:40 PM

No you are wrong here  I lived in Malta  for two years, I was a supporter from age 5 just because I couldn't attend games does that make me less of a supporter. 

 

I have probably over the years contributed more to the cause than you have ever done.

 

Ridiculous Statement




#2906322 Roughyeds fans trust

Posted by higgy on 26 March 2014 - 04:40 PM

I cannot believe what I am reading here....Are you guys really Oldham Rugby Fans?.

 

Anyone who has had the pleasure of dealing with the megalomaniac that is the beloved CH, will know the man is worthy of the descriptions posted recently. He way he so graciously speaks to others i'm sure he will not mind a few truthful descriptions of his appearance and demeanor.

 

He has personally driven away numerous staff, fans sponsors and investors  leading the team into the RL wastelands. He has taken money out of the club and literally gotten FAT whilst this has happened (this is not rude just an accurate description of the mans physical appearance - for those sensitive children of CH out there!).

 

We are in a real mess- a cannot see a way that we can get out of this mess. Even if the team improve, finally get a promotion we are hampered by the ground and dwindling support (also a result of poor management). My only hope if that we fall into administration and someone with a REAL passion for ORL takes the club on.

 

There are three better ran rugby clubs in our town, several football teams and numerous cricket clubs all run on good will - Not as a status symbol for a *&%@$% &%@(@^@^ (ill save the CH brigade the time to edit the comment).

Again your comments are ill founded,. I was one of the editors of your rude personal attack on CH's person (which had nothing to do with his running of the club) but was a personal attack on him.

To class me and others in the CH brigade is an insult, my family and I have more reason than most to dislike the man, but I would not stoop  to the comments made about him.

 

I support the team NOT CH, and will continue to do so  through thick and thin
