  3. Anthony Crolla Event

    Would make a great Xmas present that (2017 season highlights)......over to ORLFC to make it happen! Count me in providing it’s less than a tenner.
  4. Remaining Games

    Well, one Hairnet is relying on us losing all our 3 remaining games to save their skin.............Read on from their forum........ The remaining games are :- Oldham v Toulouse Toulouse Win Hornets v Swinton Swinton Win ------------------------------ Sheffield v Hornets Sheffield Win Swinton v Oldham Swinton Win ------------------------------ Toulouse v Swinton Toulouse Win Bradford v Hornets Bradford Win Oldham v Dewsbury Dewsbury Win ------------------------------- Hornets 15 Point + 0 Points Total 15 Points Oldham 14 points + 0 points Total 14 Points Swinton 14 Points + 4 Points Total 18 Points -------------------------------- We survive by the skin of our teeth. I hope. If we beat Swinton next week we should survive. As Oldham fans, who would you rather win next week, Rochdale or Swinton? If Rochdale win they are probably safe and it leaves our showdown with Swinton for winner takes all (can't see them beating Toulouse away). However, a Swinton win for me is better as they are looking more likely to survive and are in good form. Judging by the Hornets fans expectations we only need one win and we'd stay up.
  5. Remaining games

    Reckon we might be able to sneak one victory out of 3 games, question is, can you? If you lose your last remaining home game next week against Swinton you really are in the mix for relegation. Reckon Swinton will turn you over as they won't want to be going away to Toulouse and having to win to stay up. Can you beat Sheffield away? Unlikely. However, if your lives depended on it surely you could get a result at Bradford (Swinton managed it). All getting very exciting. Your next match is massive. Win and you are probably safe, lose and you might be 2nd from bottom if we can sneak a win against Toulouse who don't travel well.
  6. Relegation

    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.
  7. Dewsbury

    He was slagging the ref off more than anything Howardm!
  8. Relegation

    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.
  9. Dewsbury

    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.
  10. Swinton

    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!
  11. Swinton

    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?
  12. Halifax Easter Monday night

    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.
  13. Bradford Match

    How many were there today?
  14. Bradford Match

    Danny Brough to play for us on DR!!!!?
  15. Who Changed The Forum Name?

    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!
