  1. What nonsense as usual, but especially insensitive at a time when the most important matter is, that a member of our coaching staff and possibly other people we know, are fighting this dreadful virus in hospital. Have some respect LNIA.
  2. Kevin was a great a player and one of my Oldham heroes in the '60's and it's very sad to hear of his passing. As someone has already pointed out, Kevin was a plumber and on that subject I have an amusing memory of him doing a job for us, sometime in the '70's. We had asked him to replace the old lead pipes in our hot water cylinder cupboard, in what was a difficult and hot space. Whilst he was doing the job, we arrived home from work one day, to find a few empty beer bottles on the kitchen table - "I hope you don't mind", he said " but I've helped myself to few bottles out of your pantry". He was certainly one happy plumber!
  3. The weather forecast for Cumbria is very bad all weekend, not so much the rain on Sunday, but very strong winds. So, the game could realistically, be in some doubt. Whatever, we've reluctantly cancelled our trip up, because of the conditions. Good luck and a safe journey to the team and anyone else who is going up.

    AND... have now lost. Meanwhile, our players are awaiting a flight from Manchester to arrive at Limoges airport for the next part of their journey home. They'd already had a coach journey from Toulouse of over 4 hours. Let's hope there are no more delays. They will certainly be relieved to get back, having got the game out of the way.
  5. In actual fact, the admission prices are around average for Championship rugby these days, just a bit of a shock after the experience of League 1 at a sports ground with limited facilities. Some examples are, Featherstone £22 (£17), London Broncos £25 (£20), Swinton £18 (£15) and Leigh £22 (£20). As you say, it was good to be back there and to have a good crowd too.
  6. It's here, at last - the 2020 Championship journey begins! Looking forward to the game and shouting the lads on. Should be a decent crowd and a good atmosphere. Bring it on.

    match on sunday

    Before making such accusations I suggest that you bear in mind, that a newspaper prints its features from the information sent to it by the club's media department. However, all club announcements and information appear on the club website. So, if you keep up to date with the website, you will find that the points you mention have been covered at the relevant times: Christmas wishes before Christmas, New Year wishes before New Years Day and confirmation that the full squad of 20 players (prior to the latest signing) are all fully fit and will go up to Barrow. Also, as far as this forum is concerned, I have noticed that is not common practice for a club chairman to use it for club statements.

  11. Scott Naylor was interviewed only at the end of last week and confirmed that he did not have another role as yet. He is interested in taking up another, but there are only a limited number of jobs for a rather large number of applicants. However as an Oldham fan, I hope that he does get something in the near future, as he certainly deserves to.

    The Final

    Think that we have all learned to be on the calm side at times like these, after failing at the last hurdle over the years, when expectations were very high, so it's not a bad thing. However, I do detect an underlying sense of excitement about this Sunday's game and I believe that the players are quietly ready to do the business. COME ON THE 'YEDS!!
  13. There has been some great rugby on display this season and Sunday's game promises to be a real cracker. So, get down to the game and give the lads the support they deserve. Really looking forward to it - come on Oldham!
  14. Representing ORSA, I would like to express thanks to all who have contributed to raising funds, via their support of 'easyfundraising'. Since registering with the organisation, at the end of December 2018, over £300 has been raised, by virtue of the free donations from supporters' online purchases. This represents great commitment from a relatively small group of people and proves what can be achieved, merely by remembering to shop via 'easyfundraising', once you have registered with the website. Perhaps you have missed out on the subject of 'easyfundraising'? In which case, I refer you to the link, available both on the club website under the ORSA - Easyfundraising heading and below. If you are someone who makes purchases or travel arrangements etc. online, it is well worth exploring the link. There are around 4000 companies, registered with the website and they all offer free donations at no cost to the customer, other than the normal cost of the purchase. So, please do consider 'coming on board', as your support would be invaluable. Remember, every little REALLY does help. Thankyou. https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/orsa/
