  1. Time for Hamilton to get some new blood in. An experienced leader/half back to take us round the field, another prop and a full back please as a minimum.
  2. He was slagging the ref off more than anything Howardm!
  3. Problem is Tandle, we had no one else to pick. Grimmer probably shouldn't have played and appears to have suffered a recurrence of his injury early in the game. Scott Turner suffered a head injury again so might not play for a long time given his history of head injuries and Gaz Owen was taken off on a stretcher so if we don't have DR on Sunday we will only have 14 fit players! Alan Hunte and Nobby to come out of retirement! Albeit Nobby said he wouldn't be about on Sunday so we may be looking for a new coach as well.
  4. When leaving the stand tonight, Naylor claimed after the game he won't be about on Sunday! Let's see if he sticks to his words or was just in the heat of the moment at the end of the game. Very poor game really, both sides were distinctively average and We threw it away with that very poor grubber kick (all of Dewsburys players were well offside which didn't help - their defensive line was right in front of me). Lack of creativity is killing us, we need to score more tries. Can't see where the next win is coming from at the moment.
  5. We need a 'gobby' half back who can take us round the park and shout out orders! Look what happened when Danny Brough returned to a poor Huddersfield side, they absolutely spanked Warrington. Not sure who's on the market/available? Get Kevin Sinfield out of retirement for a few games!
  6. Another abject performance today. Two things are completely absent at the moment which needs sorting asap 1.) We have no leaders on the field. We need to get an experienced leader in quickly to get the team motivated on the field. We miss Palfrey massively in this respect, no one has replaced his leadership skills and Gaz Owen isn't the man for the job I'm afraid. 2.) Where has the team spirit gone? Without this we are stuffed and it is this which ultimately gets us victories against our closest rivals. If we can't get this back we simply won't win another game this season as there's really not much between the bottom half of the table in terms of quality. It's desire, passion and willingness to go the extra mile as a team that ultimately is the difference on most match days. What I find really worrying is Spanners comments about being 'fed up'.........there's definitely something wrong in the dressing room. Could Naylor be next? Perhaps the coaching staff/players aren't working well together and sometimes change is what is required to freshen things up. Naylor looked a beaten man when interviewed on Sky, how long will he last if the players continue to perform like this?
  7. Agreed Gaz, in fact the Halifax winger shoved him so we should actually have had a penalty! The yellow card for Adam Neal was very harsh as well. I reckon he wouldn't have been given one if the Halifax players hadn't kicked off.
  8. How many were there today?
  9. Danny Brough to play for us on DR!!!!?
  10. Totally agreed, very boring. What's wrong with our brand/trading name being known as the Oldham Roughyeds? You're not going to get my shouting Come on Oldham RLFC 1997 Limited!
  11. This is an unofficial forum though so Hamiltons pet project of rebranding us shouldn't affect this though. Everyone knows us as the Roughyeds.......oooooooh when the Yeds go marching in, oooooooh when the Yeds go marching in.....
  12. I'm sure I used it used to be called Oldham Roughyeds. Feels odd just being Oldham! Roughyeds Return please!
  13. Arise Sir Dave! Give the man a knighthood!
  14. Smart ######!
  15. Whilst we're in the Championship, keep it traditional as that where the strength lies in this division. A lot of long standing, old historical clubs........Halifax, Featherstone, Hull KR, Batley etc. Roughyeds is unique, actually has a historic meaning to the town and as TAOHAF says, it can be marketed with his fine example.
