#3270069 How to run a club properly

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 08 February 2016 - 01:03 PM

CH has done well for his £10,000 pledge along with the other 3 people 20 years ago
He has picked up a wage for the last 20 years which I sure he has agreed from the club which has been funded by the RFL which he never reports this year must be £500,000 a year what is he paid no one will ever no cos it's his club

£500,000 a year. What nonsense are you reading? You'll be telling us next that Fred dibnah did the twin towers.

If you need something to get the old juices flowing, this Rochdale fan blog has some interesting words:

He must be from outside Rochdale, he used the word hubris!!

"Oldham featured people on dual reg" People???? Since when is one classed as people? He's over emphasising our dual reg!!!! Looking for excuses already!!


#3263362 70 seater bus to home games

Wouldn't Oldham town centre have been the best meeting point for a fans bus?

Not if you want to sell the odd beer at the club, no.

Hope the rollers have been on the pitch !!!!

Yeah I'd heard that they had re formed.😂


#3262025 Oldham. What next.

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 25 January 2016 - 04:06 PM

Im a roughyeds fan and i would love to see our beloved club back up there.But i dont think there is the money,ambition or crowds to acheive this.I dont think the sport is as big in oldham as it used to be.Plus we have the glory supporters of the bigger clubs just like in football.People dont seem to have the same pride in their roots these days.Sad really.Just to stay up this season would be a great result.I live in hope.I for one would always support my town regardless of what sport i followed.I love my town.

if I had the money it would go on the infrastructure and development of local talent. Not one penny would go on players wages. That would have to come from income, gates and sponsorship. The ground would be separated from the playing side so that it could never be sold to pay debts. If that meant we never got into SL, then so be it.


#3260335 Oldham. What next.

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 21 January 2016 - 12:47 PM

you are back and moving in the right direction!

Sights should be set on becoming a top championship club and forget about SL its the impossible dream and will put undue pressure on the club

That's exactly what we're doing. This year is about staying up. Then establishing ourselves as a championship side, then a top championship side. To be honest I would love to see us competing with traditional clubs like leigh , halifax and featherstone. That'll bring back the crowds.


#3260294 Oldham. What next.

There is still a generation of people who can remember the glory days of the 50's. Small and decreasing year on year. There is a bigger generation who remember the nearly years of the 80's and 90's. This generation still have a belief that we should be up there or there abouts. We still have a relatively decent amateur set up. We look at sons of oldham who are doing well away from home, the likes of Sinfield and even George ford and Kyle eastmond and many others. And we think if only. It will be hard but we know, we believe, we can come back.


#3259589 2016 Season Preview

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 19 January 2016 - 09:10 AM

I think if we can get, either dual reg, loan or signed on, a couple of strong running props then we'll be fine. Look at last year, the team at end of the season wasn't completely the same as the one that started the season. The set up was dynamic, it changed and matured.


#3258159 dual reg on sunday

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 15 January 2016 - 10:07 AM

Oldham Giants - you're just Huddersfield's reserve team. You should play in Claret and Gold...
;)

Says a Rochdale Wolves fan. Of course when we're in the top flight we could always dual reg with Rochdale. Send our up and coming youth tp Spotland.


#3255315 Would Farrell or Edwards make the grade

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 07 January 2016 - 03:03 PM

Then there's Mike ford. I'm sure he's on record as saying he wants to learn as much as he can with union and then return to league. Of course the longer he's in union the more difficult it will be to return. And then there's the money. Are these coaches earning more than league could ever pay?


#3254994 keithley

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 06 January 2016 - 06:27 PM

I'm not sure whether the warm up games, apart from the law cup, are going to be overly competitive. There'll be more than the usual number of interchanges as well as trialling a number of new plays and positions etc. As long as we put Rochdale to the sword I won't be reading too much into the other scores.


#3251655 Canadians...

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 27 December 2015 - 05:00 PM

Its wether they are championship standard!!

At least! I would expect that any dual reg players we get are those like Mason who can't quite get in the giants side but who are better than championship quality.


#3249971 How will we do in the Champ?

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 22 December 2015 - 11:25 AM

Still cant get my head around us being in the same forum group with the likes of Leigh,Bradford,Halifax etc.It doesnt feel real.A bit mad really.

What are you going to be like when we're in the superleague forum!!? ☺
