#3182912 Last Game of the Season Disadvantage?

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 26 August 2015 - 07:44 PM

Ranks along with holdsworth disallowing lordys try off fordys kick through. If those decisions had gone our way who knows where we'd be now? Still at watersheddings with an upgraded ground!!?


#3178956 Interesting results

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 19 August 2015 - 09:36 AM

Could do with York beating Crusaders on Thursday night - helps shove them out of the equation.

And if we beat barrow I think you'll be more or less home and dry.


#3175625 Boundary Park

At least we are winning and have decent team, given the division we are in. At least we're not Rochdale. Let's just focus on the NOW and whinge and moan when we get promotion. Because if we have nowhere to play I'll be leading the whinging.

Sad to hear of the death of Rocky Turner. Played in a great Oldham team. RIP

Frankly, I'd rather be in the championship on the road than in this division at whitebank. However I'd rather be in a state of the art stadium. I live not far from Leigh and the feeling I get when see their fans going to the LSV .... well I guess you all know. And they play in red and white hoops with Blue shorts now!!!! :-(

Am i right in thinking that Of the top 6 we are the only ones who haven't been in the championship over the last 5 years or so?


#3164626 Croeso i Gogledd Cymru

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 25 July 2015 - 08:59 PM

We are now at a crucial stage as we face the final run in. Injuries and fatigue are likely. So it's better to be prepared and have plenty of back up.


#3158749 Whitebank not a graveyard for Hornets.

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 15 July 2015 - 07:44 PM

You are missing the point totally, this is not a dig at Oldham fans. I would hate Oldham or York to hit the wall. However both clubs are in the hands of a single individual of whom neither has the wider sport at heart. It is a plunge to the bottom. Hornets to Mayfield, Swinton to Folly Lane, it would make it easier to fund both clubs.

The RFL should cap the entrance fee at ungraded stadiums at six pounds. That would force the hand of the two individuals. Surely promotion would not be allowed?

No it wouldn't. If it's too expensive for the product on offer then the law of economics dictate that you will lose custom, as is happenning. Intervention by the governing body won't help us or York gain better facilities. Increased custom and turnover will. Chicken and egg scenario.

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 09 July 2015 - 09:18 PM

To be honest, in Oldham's heyday in the fifties we didn't play everyone home and away. That's why they had the championship/premiership play offs.


#3146209 Tony Barrow Jnr

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 23 June 2015 - 09:40 PM

Remember the chant from the terraces "there's only two tony barrows". Sad to hear. Hope the treatment is successful!


#3141202 How does pitch size effect games?

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 15 June 2015 - 03:28 PM

I seem to remember the width of the pitch at watersheddings being moved in and out depending on who we were playing. So when we played Wigan or saints it was moved right in to restrict the movement of the wings. Never seemed to work.


#3125625 Take a close look at Leigh

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 20 May 2015 - 09:19 AM

I agree Leigh are doing good things, but I cringe at arguments that start going on about percentage of population going to games - if you want to massively spin it that way, only about 0.035% of people in Greater Manchester want to watch Manchester United. What a failure. .

yeah but that's made up by the 10% of London that follow them. :D :D


#3124531 new Oldham rlfc book

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 18 May 2015 - 09:09 AM

Downloaded to my kindle Craig. Bringing back some really good memories. The prologue is exactly how it would've Been if john holdsworth had given that try by lordy. Highly recommended.

#3121632 Fun bus to Toronto anyone?

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 12 May 2015 - 12:05 PM

Can you imagine the look of shock on their faces when they turn up at sh1tebank.

:fie:

What you talking about??? They're applying for league 1. We'll be in the championship by then. At our newly refurbished ground. So we'll nip over the motorway and support Toronto. :D
