  1. Decent? Which game was he decent must have missed that one!
  2. New chant needs to be There's only 2 George Tyson's! or Will the real George Tyson please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.
  3. Without DR squad is paper thin as demonstrated tonight. Further injuries in game to Grimmer, Turner and Owen probably cost us the game in the end as just not enough troops and people playing injured from weekend. By comparison Dewsbury rested players at weekend with tonight in mind and it worked for them. Desperately need reinforcements. Really don't understand why they sent Egodo back to Cas before new loan for a more experienced back was done. If we can't beat these and then lose to Bradford as players busted again I fear we are staring at relegation.
  4. Sounds from comment on Twitter that the lad is looking for a game. Come on Roughyeds sort it out and bring him into squad.
  5. Someone has already mentioned the game against Australia in 86 at Sheddings. That was a special night in my memories of our old home. The teams came out and lined up for the national anthems and the guys looked seriously hyped up, non more so than the infamous Bruce "Bruiser" Clark an Aussie who went home with a t-shirt saying "I drank Oldham dry" who decided on this night he really wanted to play. During the anthems Bruiser launched a ball at the face of Aussie star Paul Langmack. This was the signal for game on let's give it the Aussies. The Roughyeds team gave them a serious physical battle, before going down heroically to a late Aussie come back. One of the absolute best nights of rugby I have ever witnessed. The score and teams that night below, just look at the legends in these lineups - more so on the Aussie side but all our boys are heroes to the faithful. Oldham 16 (Tries: Hawkyard, Foy. Goals: Worrall 3, Hobbs) Australia 22 (Tries: Lamb 2, Elias, Alexander. Goals: O’Connor 3)   Oldham: Jeff Edwards; Paul Sherman, Des Foy, Gary Warnecke, Hussein M’Barki; David Topliss, Ray Ashton; Bruce Clark, Terry Flanagan, Neil Clawson, David Hobbs, Mike Worrall, Stuart Raper. Subs Colin Hawkyard &Tom Nadiole. Australia: Gary Belcher; Dale Shearer, Chris Mortimer, Mal Meninga, Michael O’Connor; Terry Lamb, Greg Alexander; Phil Daley, Ben Elias, Martin Bella, Steve Folkes, Les Davidson, Paul Langmack. Sub: Paul Sironen.
  6. That was quality. Supporter tackled Buster first and was taking his applause from the crowd when Braddy tackled him from behind going right through him - the lad must have gone home with whiplash. He got up and chased Buster all over the field. Still makes me laugh now!
  7. Oldham v Featherstone 88 playoff final at Oldham Trafford. We started well built a decent lead and then Feth came back second half to lead. Kevin Meadows dives over in the last few minutes to level the scores. Charlie McAlister knocks the conversion over to win the game. Remember some great homecoming scenes outside the Queen Elizabeth Hall with the Yeds parading the trophy and singing myself hoarse with a great bunch of supporters. Just wish a few that were present that day would come and look at what is going on at Bower Fold now as we have a really committed team and coaching staff working wonders on our budget.
  8. Have we got some new training equipment?
  9. Assume he must have been injured or ill rather than dropped
  10. Would like to see our half backs run at the line a bit more to be creative and put some doubt in the defence's mind. If you look at brooksy's stats: Leatherbarrow 1 carry - 5 metres Hewitt 1 carry - 0 metres Need to see a bit more from them in my opinion. Accept they have try assists as well, but let's see them run the ball as well. Perhaps not the right day or weather for them to run the ball, but think it has been somewhere that they can improve on from previous games as well.
  11. Davies an option as he played really well at weekend and is a prop with SL pedigree.
  12. Just tried it myself on phone. Struggled to get it to work, but seems to work OK on computer - over to Monkey Lover
  13. Hope this link works
  14. Gutted. Has to be a point lost rather than point gained due to poor game management in the last few minutes. Some of our former players came back to haunt us in first half, Palfrey made the first try with a clever last tackle play then Crowley scored the second and made the third. Just a good job Lewis left his kicking boots at home - missed 3 kicks in first half you would have backed him to kick. We failed to turn first half pressure and territory into points. Much better second half. Not sure about this 3 hookers system still as need an extra big forward in my view. Tyson did well on his return. No Gilly today - would like to see him in at centre with Egodo on wing as concerns about his defence showed again today. We move onwards and hopefully upwards in the league.
