John Cogger interview

Recommended Posts

Absolute oldham legend.  He's right about the Warrington game. Fordy chipped through, lordy, an absolute speed merchant , picked it up and scored. Just needed Platty  to covert.  But john holdsworth (it pains me to mention his name,  but his name must go down in infammy) disallowed it. If we'd have won we would have been at Wembley on the same weekend as Latics. If only😦

I know....me and my dad were walking up the large terrace at Central Park to head out and had a almost aerial view of it....I was only 10 and STILL to this day am adamant that he was onside. We went to the football at Wembley, but what a weekend that would have been....

My all time favourite player I think, as an eight year old can remember standing in the Waterhead Paddock watching him. Never took a backward step and played well above his size /weight

Brilliant player who gave everything.

Remember going to Runcorn to watch Oldham play them (think Charlie McAlister may have been on trial??) and thought Cogger was the dirtiest player I had ever seen, as had a go at everyone. How things changed when he joined us, gave everything and put us on the front foot with every one of his many carries in a game. Remember him picking up from base of scrum and scooting away for a try down the blind side a few times - don't see that in the modern game!
