  1. The lad plays well when we have an experience stand off otherwise he doesn't back himself.

    As the play maker I'm sure he's carrying out the coaches instructions 

    I hope he has a decent 2022 if he does we will be thereabouts for promotion

  2. First thing coach 

    Second announce most of a squad don't drip feed

    Third where the f*** in the world are the home games going to be played.

    It's the first time in a long time that I'm disinterested in the announcement.

    It will need to be something special to raise awareness of the club.

  3. The worrying thing for me, isn't relegation its the lack of drip fed news regarding signings and we're going to play.

    I appreciate that noone knows about central funding but any business would have plans to deal with this. 

    Extremely worrying times, but as oldham supporter's we are never included and treated like we just don't have an input

    rebuild clifford what with, what can you build for £20.000 if the yorkshire life paper is right.

    firstly where will we play if we can find a ground to rent then the kit  then players insurances then  coaches wages.

    not much left to form a squad of around 24 players cant be done at oldham rlfc in its present state. 

    If ch can't or won't spend then what's the point. Losing each week isn't fun it's turning people away therefore revenue is going down week on week

  5. The sooner this year is over the better. I hate losing. I would prefer us to play really badly and win than this. 

    The sad fact is the team isn't good enough for championship and with players leaving. The radio said its at least 5 at this point the rebuilding needs to be done swift and get them focused on the 2022 season.


  6. Jeez I don't have any answers. The purpose of the meetings were to have fan engagement  and to get rugby oldham and CH round the table to talk about the future. 

    We got to the stage of disclosure of accounts and the meetings were pulled. Not by rugby oldham or by the fan group. Read into that what you want.

    My interest wained as my dad died during the process; if the fans that attend they is me and one other who still go. 

    My opinion is the days of one man running a pro club are numbered mainly because of the stress of it and it also spreads financial responsibility.

    I do fear for the future but I have learnt like many, oldham rlfc books are like the holy grail many have tried to see them but they have never been found.

    The landscape has changed in the last 6 years. I don't think it will happen again I might be wrong I welcome anyone to try but it's not for me now.

    I will keep going when I can, but its not the be all and end all anymore

  7. I was impressed with Reilly when he came off the bench. Also I thought Spence played pretty well after 1 training session. 

    Brian Mc has brought in belief in the players but sadly he arrived 3 weeks to late to stop the drop

    Onwards to fev

  8. First game in the flesh for me. I thought the players put in a great shift. Tyler looked dangerous each time he took the ball up.

    The defence was excellent at times and made toulouse work extremely hard for each of their points.

    The major downside was the size of the crowd or the lack of a crowd.

    I think that the crowd was between 300 -400 which is massively disappointing and doesn't fill me with joy.

  9. I believe that relegation is based on percentages based upon wins losses and draws to number of games played, not number of points won to take account for cancellations because of covid.

    Not only are you factually incorrect Tandle, you never fail to lower the mood my friend!! Are you & Cliff blood brothers?

    Hi Jimmy 

    Nope we are not I have many a run in with tandle.

    I am just really fed up with the position we are in. I know that this squad could and should have won more games but haven't.

    The bottom line is don't get points for nearly winning or Improving performances. The history books don't record that we played well it records wins losses or draws. 

    I am looking at our position from a former players perspective, you don't extra cash for losing within 11 points anymore and it's not rugby union with bonus points for losing within 7.

    I am really fed up with at looking up at every club from a poor position. clubs should be looking up at oldham but those days have certainly gone for now

    you are clutching at straws relegation is now out of oldhams hands lose on sunday and the end of  pro. rugby in oldham.          

    i have been supporting oldham since 1949 and this season as been a disaster from the word go 

    We have been at odds but I agree with you that this season is going down as one of the worst

  12. Sammutt is the spark oldham lack in the half's

    In the cold light of day we still lost. Another 2points slipped through our fingers another step closer too league one.

    Personally I prefer a really poor performance and 2 points, as there are no bad wins
