#3031264 Great news!

I see in the Chron that Sam Gee has signed for another year.

#3028506 Law Cup

Would you come to Whitebank? You refused last season, so what has changed?

#3013871 Supporters Direct Website Information.

Posted by saints10coach on 14 October 2014 - 02:40 PM

Or Rugby Oldham clearly state in their constitution that they are there for the amateur game only. Which would then surely leave the gate open for a second trust. 

They must have changed their mind on that Tosh.


#3011081 Not Again

Posted by saints10coach on 10 October 2014 - 12:46 PM

A group of ten people did try to help they where prepared to put 10k each in but needed to see the accounts I'm sure you know the ending

If you were friends with our other director on FB, you would have been privy to a few corrections to all this hearsay that floats around on this board. Although a brief rant he said it all about ownership and previous owners.

There definitely was no mention of a consortium of 10 with 10 grand each. So I will choose not to believe you, unless you name them.

Therefore we are back to were we where, with no money and someone trying his heart out to make the club a success with little help.

#2974428 Too quiet on the Western Front!

Whilst I would love nothing more than us winning promotion. I am not as bothered if we do not this time, and it is not the fear of going up, because the restructure seems to have got this division in a better state for next season. I would still like a straight home and away format, with a Cup knock out competition. But 14 or 15 clubs in the division is a step in the right direction.

There are many things wrong at the club, but falling crowds is one thing the stay aways can correct themselves, this may then lead to the club having more money to correct the other things.

I think things will improve next season, with regards to regular fixtures. There is still the promise of possible promotion, but even if this is not achieved, next seasons fixture structure should be much better with around 15 teams in the league to play a straight home and away format.

#2945321 Roughyeds vs South Wales

Not only a fantastic performance. Another highlight of entertainment was when Lewis Palfrey shouted to Kev the Cabbie by name, to shut up while he took his kick at goal. Class.

#2931919 Sunday's match

Posted by saints10coach on 19 May 2014 - 09:43 AM

Think I have to take a look at myself. I witnessed an excellent game of Rugby in red hot conditions, and all I could do was moan about how we let a 27 point lead slip. When the true fact of the matter looking back with hindsight was, we showed remarkable resolve to score the last gasp try that won the game. So now I have got my blood pressure down to a reasonable level. Well done to the Roughyeds. 

I would also like to say what a pleasant place to watch Rugby, Whitebank is when the sun is out.

#2868067 RIP Nigel Marland

RIP Nigel. You leave a big hole at the club and in the town.

#2862593 roden testimonial

Posted by saints10coach on 11 January 2014 - 01:46 PM

The title of this thread was "Roden Testimonial". If you wanted to express your opinion on Phil Costin's departure, you could have started another thread, rather than derail this one.

#2801092 here we go again.....

When we write our opinions we get accused of coming out the woodwork,rubbing salt in the wounds and negativity.I went to Leigh on Sunday and came away sick to the stomach and with raised blood pressure (fact).Sunday was another point in time when you look at things and come to a conclusion.IF Oldham is meant to a business changes need to come.This happens all the time both in business and sport.

We have done the coach changes so It has to be the man at the top.There has to be a message in losing 5 playoffs,6 if you count the Widnes one.

To me to continue as we are year on year has to be the most utterly negative thing imaginable.If you buy into it carry on.You have no say in the club and the man at the top will continue to deliver something that gets less and smaller every year.

Wanting a change is not negative it's constructive.

Playing Devils advocate. Would you not say that getting to 7 cup finals in a 14 year history, is amazing?

#2720441 Best Oldham coach?

Posted by saints10coach on 11 June 2013 - 02:14 PM

one of the major resources was a fantastic colts team and A team.

Indeed and when you think who came out of that Colts tea. Andy Goodway, Mick Worrall, Terry Flanagan, Paddy Kirwan, Ray Ashton.

maybe we should have listed the late Brian Gartland as the best coach.

#2714836 Latics ownership

Posted by saints10coach on 04 June 2013 - 10:57 AM

I see ex Widnes Chairman Stephen Vaughan is making a bid for Latics.

#2714675 What an example.

Posted by saints10coach on 04 June 2013 - 08:04 AM

Well done Michael and Jennifer.
