  1. What's you're christmas wish?

    Hamilton hand our club over to a person or persons that have the drive and ambition to fulfil its potential.
  2. 2018 Squad and signings.

    Great signing! Best back rower weve signed in years.
  3. New shirts

    But how does he continue to get away with it? Surely he must be accountable to someone? The RFL? This is why I find it incredible that he is praised by amongst others Ralph Rimmer and Debbie Abrahams . Surely they don't know the full story .
  4. It's that time.......again! HMRC

    The way the club is run is a total embarrassment. The supporters have be ground down to accept mediocrity. Would any other club be celebrating 20 years of failure.? There's even a 20 years logo appeared on the website for goodness sake. The club survives despite of and not because of Hamilton. It has indeed survived against all odds! No other club would have survived this level of incompetent management. Have a look at what Rochdale and Swinton are doing with supporter led clubs. Employing chief execs,commercial managers and running foundations that try to involve the community. If only eh?
  5. 2017 World Cup

    Come on ENGLAND!!!
  6. Anthony Crolla Event

    An event to celebrate 20 years ? 20 years of what? 20 years of running professional rugby league in Oldham into the ground? An event to feed one man's ego so a no from me.
  7. Should have bought the Roughyeds

    No he wanted to build at Lancaster club site.
  8. Should have bought the Roughyeds

    MK wanted to sell BP and build a new stadium on lancaster club site.
  9. Oldham Born Players

    Adding to Cliffords list (think he means jordan turner) Josh johnson Nathan Mason Danny Yates Ryan Maneely Chris Bridge Gareth Owen Phil Joy Plus a few more coming through at academy level at Castleford Bradford Huddersfield and Warrington.
  10. Swinton

    Cant believe that people use the phrase "small club" as an excuse! Oldham should never have been put in the position to be referred to as a small club! Such a waste of 20 years.
  11. Should Naylor go?

    We seemed to lose momentum when kenny Hughes went off then really struggled to get it back. Half backs not good enough. Our yardage sets were fine and got us in good ball. The problem is when we got there the halves had nothing to offer. No one in the team runs a line so the options for half backs are limited. Dissapointing but our style of play is suited to Bower Fold so hopefully pick up enough points to stay up.
  12. Academy RL

    Leave it out?. It's a discussion forum. I had my say and offered my opinion. My opionion is that if the right people were in charge of our club then we could be In a position to be involved in a level 3 academy similar to the one at Hopwood Hall that Hornets have an interest in. The right people aren't In charge of our club.
  13. Academy RL

    You have actually proved my point. well done,thanks.
  14. Academy RL

    The current owner has had 20 years! In this time despite starting with a clean slate and a fan base of over 3000 he's turned us into a nomadic small club! some people seem happy to accept this. He's failed in attracting the right calibre of people to grow the obvious potential. Bit harsh! Not nearly harsh enough!
  15. Academy RL

    In my opinion the academy structure needs a total revamp. Kids should be playing in town teams coached by high level professional coaches up to under 16 level. The better players would then sign under 18 contracts with pro clubs and then go on to under 21 reserve comp. Oldham is still a hot bed of young talent. A well set up junior academy in this town would be great but would we just be producing players to be picked off by Wigan,Saints,Leeds and even Salford and Leigh.? At this momen, in time there are under 16s lads from Oldham playing scholarship rugby at Warrington,Saints,Huddersfield,Salford and Castleford that I know of. It is an on going scandal that our club isn't run by people that can tap into this huge potential.
