  1. Well from an outsider looking in, the performance at Barrow was decent, not the finished article but positive. How does it go so poor in the Law Cup.... embarrassing,shocking,poor all were aimed at Oldham. Can Diskin motivate the lads, well he sure as hell didn't in the Law Cup. Did Nobby ever lose a game at Spotland? Nobby did miracles on a miniscule budget, no matter what people thought of the style, he instilled pride and passion into our lads. the proof is in the pudding. He had pride in Oldham, does Diskin have it? Gave it large before the Law Cup (I know what it means blah blah) in the media and produced nothing.Let's be honest, he didn't rip up trees at Batley. Give the man a chance but I'm afraid with a very limited (numbers wise) squad he will be found out,maybe as he was at the Law cup,signing crocked players will end in disaster. The core of the squad if they remain fit, is good but 21/22 players in the Championship won't cut it. Backs signings have been decent Abram,Charnock,Kay et Al. Forwards need massively boosting. Davies and Sheriffe crocked already. We need some firepower in the forwards. That's a given imho if we have any chance of survival. The club is falling behind with social media and marketing also. We are a Championship club in name but off the field we would be lucky to manage the standard of the National Conference. Sorry for the negativity peeps, as you know I only want the best for our club, hopefully see you all sometime during the season. Try to keep the faith and support the lads on the pitch, long season ahead I fancy. Up the Yeds!
  2. Congratulations.
  3. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to Roughyeds everywhere. Get the big man in a red suit done with then let the games begin! All the best peeps.

  5. Just had a quick look (trust me I could spend hours on the site!) via a Google search, I guess this is the web address https://orl-heritagetrust.org.uk What an amazing history of our club, truly fantastic. Thankyou to everyone involved with the trust, especially Michael Turner whose knowledge and enthusiasm is incredible. Deserves massive credit and recognition for this comprehensive and fascinating compilation of stats , photos, documents and miscellany and for the herculean effort put in to provide us with this record of Oldham RLFC through the years. Dave N does wonders with the tech side of things and again has excelled with the site. Thanks Dave! As Mr Royales says it definately is a must for anyone with an interest in Oldham RLFC and RL generally. Awesome stuff guys. Thank you.
  6. Cancel that Unicorn haha, shirt is out and looks damn good tbf
  7. I asked Santa for a Magic Unicorn, "Impossible" he said "Be realistic!", so I asked for an Oldham RLFC shirt to be available before Christmas. He said "What colour Unicorn do you want?"
  8. Jesus wept, I hope this isn't a sign of things to come with kit etc , truly an embarrassing "Celebration" shirt, what did we conquer? We didn't win the league and certainly lost a few matches along the way. A simple Oldham crest with playoff winners 2019 on a polo and t shirt would have done the job nicely to celebrate promotion. Having "Conquered" seems disingenuous and arrogant. It's a definate no from me
  9. That Sheffield badge - typical clipart and very American, designed by a bloke on a PC with Microsoft word? Sheffield in tiny letters why didn't they just drop that and become just the Eagles? Seriously, no matter the debate about our new badge do people really want something like that??? At least the new badge does contain the town crest, it's not really a big deal I don't think, badge contains crest, people at the meetings showed there support to keep the town crest and not have some radical rebrand. Yes it's in a shield? So what? The proof is in the pudding on merch etc, so maybe worth waiting to see what happens there,it's a change and people don't like change! For what it's worth I do actually like the new badge, it's either that or just keep the original one. Either way I'm happy. No cartoon animals and made up names thanks very much. Ps. There was a vote for a new badge so people had the chance to choose the new design. In fairness the result of said vote was never released which is imho an error on the clubs part as was perhaps not including the original badge as an option. As it stands it is was it is, it says Oldham RLFC and has the crest so I guess the shield is the only part of it people dislike?
  10. Ossie Rowe.Foy,Fieldhouse,Barrow Jnr, Henderson,Ruane. Tony Barrow. Ronnie Duane? Hyde,Round,Charlie,Donegan,Platt,Pyke?,John Watkins Russell,Lord,Robinson,Ford,Clarke,Warburton?, ?. That's my best effort . Great side, best shirt ever and the away shirt in blue as well . Great memories of a great time for the Yeds. Probably our most exciting time 1988-1993 ish since the 50s. Hope we have some success this year too and in fairness Nobby didn't do so bad . As for the badge/crest. Well it is the crest albeit in a shield, I personally have no problem with the new format. As I think everyone knows I love the crest but it does need modernising and imho this does what it says on the tin. Criticism of it is fine and of course everyone has their own opinion, if this new badge is put into shirts etc properly i.e. not a stuck on badge like the disaster a few years ago then I think it will be ok. Certainly I would rather have a crest in a shield and still be Oldham RLFC ( Roughyeds) and retain the crest rather than some wierd rebrand with a cartoon dog,penguin,bear,(insert strange animal/name here) and some American moniker added on like Warriors,Packers, 49ers,Red Sox etc. If the club are going to use the new badge then it has to look right on merch etc, I would still buy stuff with the new badge on over the aforementioned cartoon garbage. If that happened again after that dreadful bear then in the words of the Dragons....I'm out.
  11. Dry your eyes mate. Newcastle spent a fortune and got beat by poor little Oldham. We offer very little? Just a founder member of the Rugby League that's all. We can't afford a reserve team but when we had one in days gone by I'm sure your Saints benefitted from a few of our Juniors! We don't have much and it will be a huge challenge to stay in the Championship, but we deserve that chance for the loyal supporters who have stuck with them for X number of years, the ground we played at today is certainly as good as Sheffield's, maybe they need kicking out too?

    The Final

    Well being here in Greece and having to watch on OurLeague has drained me more than actually being at the game!Excellent from the lads today, never say die attitude and got the result we all hoped for. Massive credit to the lads and of course Scott Naylor. I know Nobby hasn't been everybody's cup of tea but he got us back to the Championship and showed great loyalty to the club. The next man in has a massive job now and we need to build a side capable of surviving in the Championship. That's for later. Every player, every member of staff and of course our incredible fans, enjoy this moment. They write us off time after time but we pull out things like this. So very proud of the team and the club tonight. Up the Yeds!
  13. Not really a massive surprise. Scott has done wonders with a very limited budget, got us into the Championship where others failed. He has been unflinchingly honest, been loyal to the club in trying circumstances and always maintained a competitive squad, the players clearly have massive respect for him, the playing style has not always endeared him to some fans but even those must agree he has put in 100% every season, and to be frank we ain't exactly blessed with the finance to sign superstars. He has got the best out of the players at his disposal. I thank him for his service and effort at our club and wish him nothing but success in the future. Hope he gets a big ovation on Sunday.Cheers boss.
  14. Thanks very much, we most certainly will be tuning in. I can definitely see the similarities with Shaw and Greece. Your not far wrong apart from the sea! Been a pleasure, we will be back for a game or 2 next season. All the best to you and the family.
  15. Thanks mate, sorry we won't get to see you. We will keep in touch. All the best to you, Sue and the family x
