  1. New shirts

    I guess the team will play in last year's kit with black tape over the old names as has been done a number of times before. Joke shop and its embarrassing. Things could be worse, just think if Dave N hadn't revamped the club website and media voluntarily, CH has absolutely no idea
  2. Dual Reg.

    Salford?
  3. England vs Tonga You Tube highlights

    1064 what are you sayin after Saturday's performance? Eat them words eh!
  4. It's that time.......again! HMRC

    The point tandle is making is the club is cash positive before the season starts with the RFL payment and season ticket payments up front not to mention sponsors etc. Every club has revenue from home fixtures to balance the away fixtures. During the off season the majority if not all players aren't being paid by the club. With regards to VAT payments, these are submitted quarterly based off what has been invoiced during that quarter. Failure to pay results in warnings, fines and ultimately winding up orders. So failure to pay to the level we have is dodging tax and embarrassing to the club and its supporters.

    and we can do absolutely nothing about it unless someone turns up with a big stash of dough ☹☹
  6. It's that time.......again! HMRC

    Agree there's more and I get we can probably only pay at the last minute. But why are we always in the main press about it? When did you last see other RL clubs on BBC website more than once for paying up late?
  7. First game-Whitehaven away.

    Had a quick scan through the fixtures and my 1st thought was what a dreadful league this is. There's about half a dozen games I'd consider as mildly exciting, the rest will be an effort to watch. Anyone who thinks were gonna get crowds of over 400 for these games (excl Bradford) needs their bumps feeling
  8. 2018 Fixtures

    Well done Dave, fantastic efforts again !!
  9. Back "home"!

    I can't see an increase in crowds, we'll be lucky to reach 400 in that league
  10. The Future of ORLFC

    I was all up for the supporters club which HOTB and others on the forum had talks with CH with Rugby Oldham. I think this is what most old and new supporters want and was very exciting. When this died a death due to CH pigheadedness and ignorance then I knew nothing would change at the club whilst he's in charge, rendering any supporter meetings pointless until he is gone.
  11. New York rugby league.

    That's my point BR, not knocking the ambition of these clubs but i really don't care about them, I'm worried about our own club and where this leaves us, how can we build our own tower, as you say, when CH won't let RO help to build some terracing?? Anyone who isn't worried for our club now is a naive fool
  12. New York rugby league.

    We stand zero chance of competing with these clubs, millionaire backers with 10k+ crowds. Unless we have massive change within our club we'll be in C1 until CH retires. How depressing
  13. The Facts

    R34 I'm sure RO attended meetings with CH and HOTB but it all died a death. CH holds all the cards, without his say so, RO and every interested supporter aren't gonna get a trust led club. The only way to push for this is vote with your feet which I think some of those that were involved in the discussions have done. A trust led club is the answer, there's just one massive hurdle in the way, CH.
  14. Possible reprieve?

    I can honestly see a change in league structure if Leigh win on Saturday. It's bad enough for the RFL with Bradford relegated but Catalan down as well would be a major loss to the global image they're trying to portray. Pray for a Leigh win and let's see what the clowns at RFL come up with
  15. 2018 Squad and signings.

    Tyson to Warrington?
