  1. You've got to remember sooperdooperleeg runs all things Rugby League.

    The thought of one of them being knocked out in an early round would end their season. It's a closed shop and that is why our great game in is such mess.

    Looking on the bright side, we have two local derbies to look forward to - our own mini trophy with bragging rights to who ever comes top.

    Stuff sooperdooperleeg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Since nothing is being posted, I was just wondering if the law Cup game is on. If so, when?

    I know we have one friendly against Wakefield followed by the challenge cup game.

    Just watched the try compilation from the 88 - 89 season, on Youtube, what a great side we had. I'm sure it said there were 4,600 watching the Yeds playing Keighley.

  3. I take objection to your suggestion that I'm "twisting the knife."

    I went to the recent meeting and I am very optimistic that John Roddy is on board. To emphasise my optimism I've watched Oldham for over 60 years and I've still got shares from when an appeal  went up for money to keep the club alive.

    So I'll thank you again for telling me where to access any information regarding our great club and not to think I will find anything on this forum.

  4. We always stood in the main stand behind the posts and on the day 'sheddings died, I put my lad on my shoulders and pulled off the exit sign that we had passed under for years - that's now on my shed door.

    I went back during the week after. The pitch had gone, the main stand had been dropped. I picked up a red and white brick from the back of "my stand" and another from the pavilion. They are safely stored again in my "'sheddings" shed!

    To add to the collection I took five pieces of ivy from the players entrance. Four died but one is now covering my garden fence.

  5. Agreeing that the state of RL is in a perilous state, I look back at how RU was a lot worse off than RL. So the question I'm posing is how did they turn it round, with what is a poorer product, into the phenomenal success it is now.
