I understand your frustration but is the hold up the design of the kit or is it getting sponsors onboard?

it was mentioned when picking up the tickets in tongue and cheek that if they bring back hoops we'd have bought one on the spot back in Dec.

But the girl at the ticket office hadnt the fogiest about the design sadly and as tosh says its a sponsor thing apparently.

Oh no some one has mentioned hoops.So that will be discarded to the bottom of CHs office bin for this years kit design.Stand by for a multi coloured barf disaster not bearing any resemblance to a rugby kit.

apologies for cursing it, most likely right though and it'll be some modern take on hoops that looks more like taking a acid trip through a kaleidoscope

That old red hooped shirt was the best one you've had that I've seen, a classic rugby shirt!

Pugwash.

The only way you could tell Oldham, Leigh, Batley and Wigan apart was the fact that only the Roughyeds wore blue shorts.

And when there was a clash we wore plain white and later blue hoops. The blue shorts look much better than Wigan' s white.

What always used to annoy me was that in some programmes we would be described as wearing red and white hoops and blue knickers

You are going back to the 1950's with knickers being mentioned in the programmes

In days of yore the word 'knickers' was regularly used to describe players shorts, or longs as they were. Indeed the New York Knicks are called the New York Knickerbockers. Some American comedians call our football 22 men prancing around in ladie's underwear, not far wrong either!!

What was the full name of your full back of the red hoops era. Long blond hair, surname Martin I think. He was one of the best I've ever seen, taking kicks on the run and a wicked change of pace, scored and made many tries against us and probably others. Nostalgia!!

Pugwash.

Yes I think that must have been the guy, I have no memory for names. Sixteen years with one club, you don't often see that these days do you?

Pugwash.

Didn't Murph play for Hornets for a short time ? I may be mistaken.

No, I don't think he ever played for Hornets.

I can't think of any Oldham players who moved to Rochdale off the top of my head.
