#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


#3121133 Barrow away

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 11 May 2015 - 12:36 PM

Cracking game between 2 good sides but I must say I've never seen so many offsides and forward passes in my life before. Being a Raiders supporter I saw the game from our side.

You've never seen Wigan play then!!! :D :D :D


#3117858 CH Meeting 27th April - Detailed report

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 06 May 2015 - 11:21 AM

This is the problem with posting 'opinions' on forums like this, sometimes you can't express what you really mean and sometimes it's taken the wrong way. I've seenpeople arguing the same point and falling out all over a miss placed word. I think once you get together you'll find there was no disagreement afterall.

Omg. So so sad. RIP Danny.


#3116439 CH Meeting 27th April - Detailed report

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 03 May 2015 - 07:26 PM

Now, if I were to tell porkies and try and deceive someone, I certainly wouldn't say something that can be easily checked. Or something thats gonna come out in time anyway. Now I've heard rumours from a mate's aunties uncle before and I'm certain that the hollinwood rumour mill is just that. So if the bloke says there will be no problems then perhaps there will be no problem. The fact is none of us know. So if someone knows how-to find out then do it.


#3115181 Returning Supporter

Not sure he's as slow... :-)

He was deceptively slow.


#3113586 Meeting with CH

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 29 April 2015 - 09:26 AM

Crowd funding maybe a way forward, CH then doesn't see the cash, the cash raised goes to the contractor. But we need cash for architect fees, planning permission, money for appeals, permission from the lease holders.

This takes time,

A ground fund, ring fenced, is what I suggested last year. However it was poo pood by those who said not as long as CH was in charge. To me this is the best option. Even if it's just for temporary terracing.

League Express today reports that Wakefield are paying £250k per annum for the upkeep of belle vue. MARWAN KOUKHASH was previously reported as saying that Salford paying £25k per match! Something we need to consider wherever we go.


#3103021 north wales

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 08 April 2015 - 09:12 PM

Not a bad game from two reall committed sides. A couple of really high bombs was the difference. North Wales put pressure on our defence as the ball came down with snow on it. We seemed to be camped out on their line in the first half while playing down the brew but just couldn't make it count. Two quick tries for them in the second half put us on the back foot. But we pulled on back with 4 minutes to go, but alas it was too late. Onwards and upwards as they say.


#3095458 Ian , Who?

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 26 March 2015 - 01:45 PM

Think he's trying to play mind games with the Oldham squad Tbh. Won't work. If there's one team we want to beat it's Rochdale.


#3094295 Rugby Oldham

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 24 March 2015 - 02:22 PM

Thanks Geoff. I must says that I've learned more from that one post than from anywhere else in the last few years. If only the the club would be as open and communicative then im sure more help would be available.


#3092698 Sheffield game

Posted by The Art of Hand and Foot on 21 March 2015 - 03:33 PM

I, also can't see us winning, although stranger things have happened. If we can compete for at at least two thirds of the game I'll be happy.
