We already know he cannot look after the club properly but this may be an interesting situation.

If everybody boycotted the Roughyeds for three games, and gave their money to a sensible trust. The money saved would buy the club from the administrators when CH is forced out ! 


Just a thought!

#3011071 Not Again

Dont worry Cluedo, HandandFoot is a lunatic.


The money owed to the taxman is never CH's to spend and should be put aside during the year as all incoming monies are received.


The fact that our leader appears not to take this seriously is in fact ridiculous and news worthy. Just because something happens every year does not mean we should become immune - There really are some idiots (about 400) who support this club. Which actually goes a long way to explain how CH stays in business. 


Most sensible people will not put up with this circus.


If roughyedspud saves all the money hes earning on Sundays maybe he can make an offer to the administrator.

Chris has no idea what help he needs or how to go about getting it. He has proved this time and time again by alienating almost anyone who gets near to the club!!!


Any public company would gotten rid of him years ago. Things were looking good under Mike Ford and then Steve Molloy - Hamilton got to big for his boots and underestimated the input of these two solid Oldham Rugby people. He wanted the big time and the glory associated.


We have been on a slow and steady decline ever since.


Time or a change or we will dead within 3 years.

I would personally recommend players and staff don't bother with this forum. It can do one of two things. 1. Make you big headed or 2. Severely damage your confidence. And considering the abuse aimed at CH over the years, why on earth would he want to read all the negative drivel that gets written about him?  

Because it is true and how his customers feel ?

Just guessing what help is required....


1. 17 players or the required Oldham standard.

2. Coach and backroom staff of required standard.

3. Pitch and facilities of the required standard.

4. Marketing (of any standard).

5. Someone to find all of the above.

6. Someone capable of managing all of the above.

7. The fans to return and forget the (recent) past.

8. Roughyed Spud to get a non-weekend job.

Play at Saddleworth Rangers? More than big enough.


And Bandy can get a good pint before the game.

Got to disagree here Bandy.


Buying warm beer at inflated prices, buying cheap replica shirts and paying to watch ###### played on a tip is supporting your Pal's salary and vanity.


I think the attendances show that you are in the minority of past/present and future supporters of Oldham rugby with your sentiments.

Wow Bandage - what has happened here.


These are the exact reasons why there are < 450 "TRUE SUPPORTERS" (forgot which Lumatic said that now) left.


Forget the standard of rugby, its the lack of respect shown by CH that is what has galled me for the last 5 years plus.  He treats us like ###### and charges us for the privilege and then swans round like the fat controller!


If the die hard CH lovers like the bandage have seen the light there may be a chance for this club!!!

It's a shame we're still having these conversations. For my part as long as there's a Rugby League Club for my home town, I'll continue to support it.
That doesn't mean I'll pay 2.50 for a 60p can of bitter because there's never any draught beer on (we can all speculate as to why that may be). It doesn't mean I have to agree with the way the club is handled, promoted, staffed and managed. It doesn't mean I'm happy to be playing at a ground that is a laughing stock - even to the rest of the bottom tier of the 'professional' game.
But, until CH makes the whole financial situation at the club public, or at least available to potential investors, we will never know the how much it will cost to remedy the situation. Clearly CH will also never relinquish control of the club unless there is a signifiant financial inducement for him to do so. This would effectively mean that any prospective purchaser would have to pay more for the club than it is actually worth.
It is too risky to let the club fold...look at Bramley. So those are some of the barriers and without a sugar daddy there isn't a an instant, big-bang solution.

I know some fans will say 'Right then smart-*rse, instead of identifying problems we all know about, why not come up with solutions'.
Now, I (and most of us) am not in a personal financial position to march into the club with a blank cheque and offer CH a golden handshake, pay all the club's debts, appoint experienced people and get us back to a firm foundation from which to launch a new business model.
However, I would put SOME money into a supporters Trust...IF that Trust were able to then purchase a stake in the club (subject to due diligence) AND the Trust's appointed representatives were to have a real say in the day to day running of the club and it's strategic forward planning. This model could see a continued senior role for CH which could safeguard much of his income and influence (and maintain some stability and important relationships), while offering new investment, new ideas and reassuring/engaging the stay away supporters and other would be investors.
I suspect there are a few dozen fans who would be willing to contribute to such a scheme/proposal.

This is exactly what spud tried to organise, and was ambushed by all the lunatics at the George!

You lot are ridiculous, I gave your pal credit for savjng the club in 97. Its what hes done since that makes me sour. Hes p#$$@& off All the people who understand rugby in the town, and relies on the brainless lunatics left to keep him in lambrini and donuts!
