  1. Agree with everyone's comments, if the halves decided to take the line on a bit more and get dirty once in a while it would massively benefit the team and we'd see a lot more breaks
  2. the poor result has to be put down to bad kicking AGAIN, how many times has this now happened and cost us points. As I've said before this is going to keep costing really precious points and is already the reason we're not much higher up. Neither Hewitt or LB are good enough at this role. Not sure what Scott can do about it though, that's his job, but the problem is easy GOOD EFFORT
  3. What a fantastic day of rugby, even the sun was shining and the grass looked green. Went today with another 13 non regular lads from the pub who all had a great day out and in the bar after the game with Jack Spencer & Gilly, they even started looking at flights to Toulouse. Must admit thought we were going to lose more points due to another missed kick, but there kicker was there downfall today, as I've said penalties win prizes. Great effort by all the team 'bodies on the line', without criticism I still think there's better to come from this side. Oldham made my weekend :-)
  4. You could also look at it positively and say the good field kicking of our current half backs brought us so close to pulling off two wins. I agree the field kicking is better, but there's going to be more close games and i always think over the course of a game point on the board matter more than the potential of getting a try. It saves the player legs in a match and maintains long term stamina over a season
  5. Rochdale know the importance of having a decent reliable kicker, we would now have two more vital point on the table if we'ed had one. Let's hope these early dropped point don't crucify us by the end of the season, and we learn our lesson quickly. . Never a fan of Palfery but he know to get the ball through the sticks.
  6. Well said Tub. Everyone knows the pitch is in shot order I expected the game to be called off first thing Sunday morning.
  7. gutted at todays result. Thought we were on top most of the game. The guys should be proud of their efforts
  8. Agree with staying at Bower. Think the club should now invest in a supporting fans actually attending the ground such as free transport. I know the club has tried to do this previously (probably without much success) but if we do stay there we need to have a long term plan to increase attendances and keep connect to the town which will only be done by a well thought out plan. other ides such as free child with an adult, free attendance for kids from local clubs, even promoting the older supporter such as coaches provided from sheltered accommodation places that have load of flats. stuff like this is never an overnight success
  9. Let's all ensure the Rugby League family come together to remember this great guy by standing and applauding on the sixth minute at the Challenge Cup. In our game the big and small clubs are all equal as is every players. http://www.hornetsrugbyleague.co.uk/News/Article/46426
  10. Gutted I wasn't there had the privilege of listening to the game of Oldham Community Radio, would like to give a big thanks to Malcolm Lord and all the others who made it possible. Great comment from Malcolm to CH after the match "Well another win for the roughyeds Chris, you can't be happy with that......... you're going to have to give out winning Again !!!!". P.s Tub and Crab get a grip!!!
  11. Agree. Can't understand why we don't make the most of these opportunities. It leaves me baffled.
  12. I think a family area may be a good idea, but on the other hand may be there should be a free language area as hopefully these would be in the minority. I do believe the swearing is excessive and I would have an issue taking my 5 year old to a game, I also believe it puts other people off from coming
  13. Stuart Peerce is a good fan to. He likes does some decent advertising in Talk Sport would also be good for publicity
  14. 100% effort from all the players today. When Dewsbury put four subs on after 20 minutes they were on the back foot, that was their trump card and our lads stepped up to the mark. Well done you should all be proud and fear nobody in this division. Not saying we'll win every match but by playing like that every opposition will know they've been in a game and what it's like to play against a 'TEAM with true spirit and the heart of a Lion'. Well done boys feel really proud, and great support from all the fans!!! 'COME ON OLDHAM'
