  1. The Future of ORLFC

    To be honest R34 a covered shed down the houses side would do.25 yard to 25 yard. I have seen its much better looking place than it was but it is no good in rain.Also without stepped terracing you need to be tall to see if God forbid we get a crowd.

    It sounds like the type of thing I would say.Whitebank is CHs spiritual home for his club.For me it's about what is tolerable.I couldn't tolerate a return to the pre 2015 state of affairs.Trouble is ,Whitebank is for me part of that.I would never consider that place a permanent home.Its CHs club,he wants to run it,so my best advice is get us promoted,get us out of that place. I will support all reasonable endeavours to that end.

    What about an albatross round Roary Roughyeads neck.
  4. Dewsbury..... Sunday

    I guess I am up in the higher echelons of matches attended so I will take it as read I can have an opinion. As one of the five who did attend the CH meetings I would say that some good came out of them.CH was totally in the dark ages re internet and social media,that is tonnes better thanks to Dave.Merchandising was awful ,that is better thanks to a deal with bsk and so on.CH was still stuck in the Oldham Chron as the sole distributor of info era.Sadly that has passed and I can't see it coming back.We have to keep developing the social media side. However like Tubey and Cliff said we had people round the table and CH was open going down the supporters/RO route. However the team started winning and got promoted and this process was cast aside by CH.It should have continued, perhaps at a slower pace, but it should have. Due to the improvements made and playing at a half decent ground I was able to dismiss the ignorance of CH and was happy to support the team.If CH keeps these levels, fair enough and we have a half decent ground,fair enough crack on..However there is little point trying to work with him and have a set up involving him.He does it himself or not at all. If CH had said look lads ,I hear what you say but I want to do it my way,fair enough but not answering emails, and doing what he did was just plain ignorant. Now in many ways You can argue he is back were he was before the meetings.But with yet more people alienated. As I have stated before I'll put money into a post CH club.Ask me to deal with ignorance I have seen from the current setup.No Chance. Ps I hope someone berates mine and my families 250 year + combined attendance record.
  5. Swinton away - - - - Sunday - - - - - Sale

    When Wardy dropped the ball at the start of the second half me and my cousin got that sinking feeling.It was just so sad to see the lack of invention when attacking, just one man stuff. Swinton scored tries making the ball do the work,we didn't, so Swinton deserved to stay up.Fair play to them Swinton, if nothing else, looked like they benefited from the little regime change they went through.If and when one comes to Oldham I hope its not too late.

    Agreed 34. Oldham as a town has gone in a direction I just don't understand.The area spud mentioned ,in fact the whole of that area should have been stadium 2000 years ago.A bit like LSV.Latics on there,rugby the lot.The retail put in a more central area. I never expect to agree with everything that goes on in the town but somehow I disagree with virtually everything done there now. The only thing I'd like to do in Oldham is watch the rugby.I am not holding my breath.
  7. Oldham Evening Chronicle

    Used to go up and collect the green final for Anne's paper shop on sat.I'd watch the final pages come down the shoot and get turned into plates.Then a flurry of activity as the vans were loaded.I got my batch and shot off down Woodstock St past the park up to Broadway Street.This on a chopper bike.In the end the younger generation don't go for papers and there is so much news, blogging, social media that the chron could not monetize it's content.Its more important than ever that Oldham continue to grow into the social media world and not underestimate it the way they used to before Dave Naylor started his good work.
  8. Bradford at home

    The stewards had their hands full for this one.What with the mass invasion of the Tom Pendry seats by the Bradford bugler and his one man army.
  9. Sheffield away.

    I kind of agreed when Lewis Palfrey was allowed to go.I was seeing him as a player who was only going to allow us to get so far.I was hoping that we were going to get someone with the guile to get us a few places up the league.It didn't work out and we have gone backwards.I came in against Rochdale a couple of minutes in and saw Scott Leatherbarrow make 5 yards from a pen kick to touch and had that sinking feeling. Whatever happens re the Next matches and survival/ relegation the CH airman has to maintain the standards now in operation re website, merchandise ground.
  10. undefeated.

    It was strange knowing I was not going to end Sunday on a high or low.However listening to Salford on the radio got me back on it. Especially that 40 20 late on when they spilled it at the tap. Straight out of the Oldham top drawer of frustration.
  11. Featherstone Rovers

    I don't think these stewards are the same as the soccer ones.
  12. Featherstone Rovers

    Clifford this thing with nipping out for a smoke rears its ugly head from time to time. We seem to corner the market for unnecessary stress and grief.All the other venues I go to have it sussed and everyone is happy, some venues dealing with 49500 more than our people do. There was an incident or two last year. With these stewards its a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I just hope it doesn't put away fans off from coming here.That's the last thing we need.
  13. Toulouse

    A lot slicker at the play the ball,better kicking from Wood and Hewitt.Great tackling from all.Gee needs to hang on to that ball better. As for the tannoy man,one word,idiot.
  14. Relegation

    I would prefare us not to be playing in league one.
