  1. Glad Hutchings has signed. He was a very promising young winger from Saints. I think over the off season he might have bulked up a bit too much as Diskin might have seen him more as a utility. Will be very good back on the wing as he is very strong and has a huge workrate carrying the ball.
  2. Obviously in recent years the two promotion finals in 2015 and 2019 would be up there along with the cup shock win against Hull KR in 2016. I think a couple more that really stand out for me is playing Blackpool away in 2010? and McNally I think scoring in the last minute to win a huge game. Another was Barrow away in 2007 to go through to the Grand Final and Adam Hughes scoring an intercept to guarantee the win. Was a huge Oldham following in both games with superb atmosphere's. Gill's winning try against Bradford in 2017 at the fold was also super as a one off moment.
  3. Think they're announcing 2 a week on a Tuesday and Thursday night to parcel out the news. We've got at least another 3 new signings already in the bag just waiting to be announced. Of the players left from this year who haven't yet resigned i'd like to see Hutchings signed as we barely saw him this season because of injury but he looked very promising in pre season. Glad Smith has signed as he is potentially is an excellent player at Championship standard we just need to get him on the pitch as often as we can. Looks like Diskin has really focused on the pack so far but we need to
  4. Nope. But he wont be with us next season.
  5. Only seen Reilly play this season but he looks very promising based on those games. Got a lovely little swerve/step to find space and then has great leg drive in the contact. Prop looked to be our weakest element this season and looks like Disco is really looking to rectify this and I believe we've still got a few more new forwards to come in as well as hopefully Joy and Spencer resigning.
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tztJnFs1-i4 Think this is our Brierley not the one above but i'll take him as well
  7. A new company has taken over the super league stats during lockdown making any comparisons pointless. They are very poor and have made a huge amount of mistakes but no one seems interested in taking them to task from the RFL.
  8. Love Nelmes and what we saw from him in 2018. Think he had some off field difficulties last year which is why he left but now thats all sorted cant wait to see him back in an oldham shirt.
  9. Yeah I agree its poor. Stats should be available as soon as possible. In terms of live stats the RFL has never wanted them done for some reason and has always just let SKY do their own which i've always thought has been to a poor standard.
  10. A new company has taken over doing super league stats in Sydney so I would take any of these comparisons with a grain of salt. They priortise NRL stats over super league so the stats wont be posted until Monday's I think from now on.
  11. Yep Nelmes was one as well. Was absolute quality for us in 2018.
  12. Yeah thats one of the 5 i was told. only really seen him once this year against us so dont know too much about him.
  13. Disco been out and about making plenty of inquiries. I know 5 new signings and all will improve us.
  14. Missed tackles are obviously not good but you are always going to miss a fair few especially as we are down the bottom. One of the big worries for me watching the game back was how little control we had at the PTB , an area where we have dominated League 1 since Naylor came aboard, both in attack and defence. Dewsbury constantly got three men in the tackle and manipulated us onto our backs or a poor position. Whereas when we were defending we would get numbers in the tackle but they finished on their elbows and knees getting a quick PTB and plenty of easy metres. Down the hill second half was

  16. Absolutely awful second half. First half we tackled quite well and seemed up for the game which was a huge improvement on last week. Very poor with the ball though with our only try coming from a dewsbury knock on 10 metres out. Second half we dropped the ball first set let them get in front and it was game over as soon as they got 8 points in front. For Dewsbury they played the game very smartly and dominated down the middle in the second half with Annakin and Connor Scott the stand outs for me. Finn and Sykes just get the job done no fuss Charnock was absolutely appalling today wit
  17. Massive game for us this Sunday. Dewsbury have started the season very well with two impressive wins against Halifax away and then Widnes at home. They've got a couple of ex Oldham lads as well in Joe Martin and Luke Nelmes In terms of the squad we have lost Kershaw and Croft on dual reg with Worthington and Johnson the likely replacements in the starting team. I'd also look to bring Kay back into the team at full back. Abram looks very promising but has made a few big mistakes at full back. I'd drop Hewitt and move Abram to scrum half. We have to start better than we have in the ga

  19. Awful first half. We looked really weak and unmotivated for some reason . Bradford could only score when they got within 10m of our line and we let them camp down there for the first 15 mins and it was game over. Defence on the line was pitiful from just about everyone. Poor Abram had a shocker in the first half but there wasn't too many who could hold their heads up by half time. Second half was better but not by that much. Intensity in defence was better and we tried moving the ball a bit more but we still looked really stodgy and not free flowing with the ball. So many of the players g
  20. Kershaw back on dual reg as well for us. Wing has gone from being probably our weakest position to one of our strongest with the signing of Ince as well who is proven quality. Wonder if this means we might see a bit of Kay at full back which is his best position and maybe Abram to scrum half as we are just getting nothing from Hewitt.

  23. Abram was fantastic at full back and that was definitely a penalty try. one on one with the full back steps him then gets tripped. Actually thought the ref was superb, firstly telling Bridgey to pipe down shouting at him and then the pens they received in the second half were all deserved. Thought Wilkinson was superb again and he is starting to play bigger minutes as Diskin can't take him off. Langtree was immense in both attack and defence with a couple of absolute bone rattlers. Croft on debut looked good and had one excellent break in the first half. As everyone has pointed out
  24. Get in. We made that so difficult but a win is a win
