  1. Can't please everyone . Building the best squad for many a year and you get this negativity before a ball is passed. Unreal.
  2. What's this then if not a comment\update from the club? https://roughyeds.co.uk/2020/03/update-from-club-chairman-christopher-hamilton/ LNIA in these times of self isolation please could you adhere to that and stay off the forum. ?
  3. Pretty low metres gained across the board really, I know the heavy ground won't have helped (and from the reports Dews defence was solid) but those go forward stats seem very light to me. Must be one of Langers quietest ever games looking at the stats. As Bryan says defensively the figures are high on missed tackles also, with all that taken into account plus handling errors,and poor decision making it's no wonder we are getting beat. How much do we miss Benty when he isn't playing? Hugely is my opinion. All needs tightening up rapidly (maybe shuffle the half backs around, diffe
  4. Exactly this. Well said pal ?
  5. Well from afar it wasn't the hammering I expected, Widnes fans and journos very complimentary about Oldham today on Twitter. Massively heartened to see the positivity from our posters on the forum and other social media, it was a game where I expected one of the big guns of the comp to win but I also wanted us to fight hard and give 100%. Seems like the lads did that and a very good attendance too. Positive signs all round.
  6. 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 m
  7. 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. ???????

  9. 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
  10. Cancel that Unicorn haha, shirt is out and looks damn good tbf ?
  11. 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?" ??
  12. 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 ???
  13. 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 m
  14. 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 forma
