  1. When I win the Euro millions and build New Sheddings, I'm going to have the John Holdsworth suite, complete with pictures of the man. It will be the best toilets in the RL. I'll invite you round to be the first to christen them. ?
  2. That season was one of the best in my lifetime. Ruined by Holdsworth. Newton and Allen were a fantastic 2nd row combo. Was there that day at Naughton park. Wasn't too well the day after at work ?
  3. As for Oldham v Widnes, I'd love us to pull off a shock. However if we lose by less than Rochdale did last week then most of us will regard that as a result. ?
  4. In the 80's and 90's Oldham had loads,of players who ended in Y. Burkey, Fordy, Roundy, Platty, Flanny, Hobbsy and Goodway. ?
  5. Tbh it depends on what the brief was. If they were to asked to adapt the current crest within a tight budget and timescale then there's not a lot they could do. But at least we can sing "3 owls on our shirt, challenge cup's still gleaming" ?
  6. Was talking about Bradford. Some people on this forum can be doom and gloom. So I was pointing out that you beat Bradford twice and now they're playing in a higher division.so all is not that bad.
  7. Workington beat Bradford home and away last year and look what happened to them.
  8. After last year's debacle with Salford, then Leigh, we're not DR-ing . However we seem to have a squad much stronger than we've had for a while. We did DR with Huddersfield 2 seasons ago. That didn't work either. When we needed players at the end of the season , none were available. Nearly half the squad injured and So we were relegated.
  9. Not this weekend no. But when we play Doncaster. Made the comment because there was talk of Donny and dual reg.
  10. Danny Langtree signed by hull from oldham last season could be playing against his old club if he's a duel reg. He's spent the last 8 season battling for us and could end up battling against us.
  11. It could be argued that some of the catalysts were Wigan, basically and Maurice Lindsey, along with the Bradford fire. After the Bradford fire all wooden stadia were condemned. Sheddings was one big potential bonfire. Needed a fortune to upgrade. At the same time Wigan, under Maurice Lindsey became the first real full time club and were winning everything. Was it 10 consecutive appearances at wembley? So Oldham tried to catch up spent money we hadn't got . The rest, as they say is history. It could also be argued that john holdsworth played a part.He disallowed a try that could've taken us to Wembley on the same weekend that latics were there. Could've brought the income we needed.
  12. Been thinking about the way we go about it. 2 things, 1)players to play in secondary positions, that is, in the positions they would play in cases of injury or sending offs. Get them used to being out of position and 2) focus on defence, defence, defence. Try and nil them. Of course I'm not a coach, well not a Rugby league coach.
  13. In 2 minds about how we go about this one. If we win, we could be over confident when it counts. Then on the other hand if we lose , come the real games we may lack confidence. Also we don't want to give too much away, so that they're better prepared for the real encounters.
  14. No DR from the bookies favourites. And, we've got one of the strongest line ups I've seen in years. Last year, even though we didnt go up, we had the 3rd best defence in the league.
  15. Bob Lindner oldham and Castleford. Hussein m'barki as previously mentioned was cracking for oldham. Oh and john cogger, never took a backward step.
