  1. Wishing everyone associated with Oldham Roughyeds a Fantastic Christmas and a better 2022.
  2. 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.
  3. Thanks for the advice. Just curious why is my post "unnecessary and premature." I just enjoy the banter and importantly hearing true fan's opinions on our forum.
  4. Thanks OL14.Yeds It makes great reading all I can do is hope that "The Partnership" brings all that is great about Rugby League back to Oldham. Thanks again.
  5. All the talk about involving everybody with an interest in the Yeds didn't last long. We the supporters would like to know what is, if anything, is happening. THINGS DON'T CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. Did the meeting take place on Tuesday? I can't find any evidence that it did.

    Next season

    WHERE ARE WE PLAYING NEXT SEASON?????????????????????????/////
  8. What time tonight? Let's hope it's either another halfback or a loose forward.
  9. Do any of you remember when the club invited supporters to invest in the club. I still have my investing certificates. Does that mean I own part of the club?

    Next season

    Heard somewhere that scrums or getting down for a chat are back next season.
  11. It's all gone very quiet - so is that it?
  12. 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. Memories!!!!!!!!!!
  13. 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.
  14. Always wondered why "Hornets"?
  15. How many have Swinton taken on? Still would have liked Charnock at loose forward. Just let's hope they play him at stand off!!
  16. When I started watching our great club we were simply Oldham Football Club. We don't need bears, roughyeds, sharks. hairnets, warriors - we are OLDHAM.
  17. From that list I would take Barran - half back cover, Charnock - loose forward and Pick for his experience.
  18. It doesn't matter what badge they wear as long as they wear it with pride. However, why not give the challenge to the schools and see what they come up with.
  19. I hadn't forgot Ridyard - surely there must have been more. Can I again suggest we get Charnock at loose forward. Or has he gone to Swinton as well.
  20. Just curious, why haven't any of Littler's players joined him from Swinton?
  21. What's happened to Charnock? I feel he could fit in nicely at loose forward.

    2022 squad

    I can't understand why you have signed so many Oldham players. On the two occasions we played you, you were by far the better side. The players you have taken on board did absolutely nothing last season, just let the club and spectators down. I just hope they prove me wrong next season - I wouldn't hold your breath!
  23. Tandle with your wonderful insight into Oldham I hope you will attend any public meeting organised by John so as to enable you to put everything straight!
