  1. What a one eyed view of Rugby League!
  2. Hes going to stop swearing...
  3. Steve MC the scotland coach could do this job well...super coach!
  4. My jaw dropped when I saw Henry Paul in the frame...super player but a coach who will be under pressure from day one....Nah!
  5. 22-22 draw with a last gasp try by the roughyeds...phew!
  6. Anyone can be mislead John
  7. And there is the "Catch 22" I agree with you Geordie Saint, I do but the pursuit of a winning team can be the slippery slope to Groundhog Day 4!
  8. It will all depend on the quality, capability and demonstrated integrity of the person/persons in charge of the running of the club...And believe you me I know this as a long time frustrated Oldham Roughyeds Fan!
  9. I can truly relate to this post...I still carry the Watersheddings wound !
  10. The longer view that bulls fans may need to take is the possibility that in a highly competitive championship hampered with a 12 point handicap then relegation may well come but it still doesnt mean that the remedial work will not happen. it needs a longer view/or a bigger picture to be taken...(A couple of cliches often used in the last 20 odd year history of ORLFC before the age of t` internet forum)
  11. And now, the end is near; And so I face the final curtain.My friend, I'll say it clear, I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.I've lived a life that's full.I've traveled each and every highway; And more, much more than this, I did it my way.Regrets, I've had a few; But then again, too few to mention.I did what I had to doAnd saw it through without exemption.I planned each charted course; Each careful step along the byway, And more, much more than this, I did it my way.Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knewWhen I bit off more than I could chew.But through it all, when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit it out.I faced it all and I stood tall; And did it my way.I've loved, I've laughed and cried.I've had my fill; my share of losing.And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing.To think I did all that; And may I say - not in a shy way, "Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my way".For what is a man, what has he got?If not himself, then he has naught.To say the things he truly feels; And not the words of one who kneels.The record shows I took the blows -And did it my way! Yes, it was my way. It had to be done by someone...THE most appropriate SONG for ORLFC is above!
  12. Let me tell you it is so hard to read all this lot as a lifelong Oldham RLFC fan...we know all about makeshift ramshackle joints, and being cast away... All the Bulls fans need to do is support the club, You are still in the same league and you apparently still have your own ground...It could be worse...The newco will need you more than ever!
  13. Bulls have got to plan long term, otherwise you could end up in a "Groundhog Day" scenario....Rebuild on firm foundations, I think its the only way to gain the respect of the die hards after all that has transpired at the club... The "challenge for promotion" idea...when nothing is even known about the one remaining name in the hat, should surely be "If the Bulls survive the Championship this year after the points deduction"
  14. Bulldogs 28 Rams 18 FT
  15. Theres Hope and a Future...Just like Christmas John...NICE TOUCH!
