Very good game indeed and Oldham were very unlucky to lose.
Oldham outscored Halifax 5 try's to 4 but with Oldham scoring out wide they missed 6 points in conversations, coupled with gifting Fax some very generous field position ay critical times meant to was 24 each with 5 mins to go but a drop goal and a penalty in the last min meant Fax took the points.
The penalty count was heavy stacked in Halifax favour but the Oldham pack dominated and the "Cookie Monster" had a very good 80 mins.
Neil's boys are a very good team unit with a strong pack and some speedy backs
No matter what positive rugby post people put on the forum, the same negative nellies drag it back to the same subject. le Tosh1960, your post is marked Oldham v Thunder, clearly a post about the match but we arrived about at negativesvilles.
The same people who have financially supported in the past but now support the club spirit continue to post negative opinions and they infiltrate all rugby posts about OUR current team and other rugby matters.
Lets have one topic banner for "negative, anti CH, I am not going ever again whilst CH is in charge, I don't like Whitebank, and lets talk about starting a new club", then the rest of us use the forum for rugby matters, and we don't have to plough mountains of negativity everyday.
if people boycott Oldham Roughyed's, then put simply there will be NO Oldham Roughyed's to support or rebuild because the RLF are under no obligation to grant any new club a licence i.e. Bramley RLFC went out of business and they have never been permitted back into the professional ranks.
Boycotting the games is a short sighted strategy that will destroy professional rugby league in Oldham. (my opinion)
I have read this thread with interest but talk is cheap. People can post all day long about this issues concerning Oldham Roughyed's but until either 1) Private investor comes forwards and invests, 2) A supporters trust is officially formed and they buy shares in the club or buy's the club 3) A consortium is identified who are willing to provided investment or 4) The clubs goes out of business, then things are going to remain the same.
I enjoy watching both teams and I personally will continue to watch my rugby league team.
Oldham v Gateshead Sunday 13th April 2014..
Get down and support your team this weekend.......
With no first team game this weekend and another away match next week at Bradford, Come on down to Whitebank and watch the reserve grade boys play. The matches are fantastic, the guys play with commitment and passion. Neil's team are playing some exciting rugby and this is the ideal opportunity to give the Under 20's a try.
Mindless idiotic vandals with no regard or respect for everybody or anything but themselves have caused excessive damage to the outer building at the club. I am not sure if any thing has been taken but again it is additional cost of the repairs that will dent the clubs revenue.
If anybody works in the technical security / CCTV industry and could temporary provide recordable CCTV equipment then I am sure the club would appreciate it. I haven't spoken to the club about this idea but I am sure it would be gratefully received. also if anybody is able to provide security lighting I am sure that will help.
Not sure what the local neighbourhood policing team are doing because this the club are now repeat victims of crime and the offenders need to be brought to justice.
(this is an appeal for CCTV recordable equipment and not a thread about the area and or the local residents who reside there, The club works hard in the local community)
It is far to easy for people to criticise but far more difficult for people step forward and make a difference.
The past is history, a proud history but never the less history.
I would be willing volunteer for the trust and also I would be willing to assist with all aspect of the trust / club.
Until the trust approaches the club to establish if this is a viable option, it is speculation that the Oldham chairman will not support this venture.
if people want to watch professional rugby league in Oldham they need to attend matches and support the team.
I believe if you pay your money you can have your say, too many people come on this forum to express negative views but most of the negative view points are posted by people who contribute very little or completely nothing to the club. We are were we are, unless a person bank roles the club, which is not going to happen it is down to EVERYBODY to contribute in any way possible to make a difference to ensure we can firstly survive and secondly move forward.

Thank you for attending the game today Celtic Rooster, I think the atmosphere was due to the weather conditions.
Next weeks game will be a close affair again, No real favourites on paper for next weeks game!
I see the Rochdale message board are tipping London to win because todays game took a lot out of Oldham's pack, (Not too sure about that)
If we get promoted we will not have listen and read about Rochdale's supporters opinions about our ground. (Big Doug) questions why the RFL allow rugby to be played in a third world facilities. Ask the RFL? The ground is not ideal but it is all we have at the moment. People have short memories, Dale haven't always played in a nice ground. The facilities are what they are, both clubs have been rebranded, re launched, re financed because of financial difficulties, and at the moment you are playing in a tidy ground and we are not. Simple. Everybody is always welcome but if you don't like the ground don't come!
