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