  1. Sadly, like I have said on previous posts the future of our great club is nearing its end.

    I feel the blame for our demise began with Batty and Quinn then compounded by the total despotic attitude of Hamilton.

    RIP Oldham Rugby League Football Club.

  2. 41 missed tackles - at this level that can't be acceptable. The coach doesn't miss tackles the players really do need to look at themselves - are they proud to wear the Oldham shirt?

  3. £360,000 in debt, 300 spectators paying £6,000 per home game with most going on outgoings , no assets, soon no Sky money so how long can we stumble on?

    Goodbye Diskin and goodbye Hamilton.

  4. I believe there was 1400 at Rochdale with most of them from Waterhead, St. Annes, Saddleworth and other amateur clubs.

    Well done to them for realising the importance of realising the need for getting the youth and the amateur clubs involved. Looking at the "crowd" at Stalybridge, probably about 250, there wasn't anyone under 40 there.

    The club is in a terminal state. Surely, the RL must do something and quickly - but are they interested.

  5. It's so sad seeing the players giving everything they have got, week after week, waking up on a Monday morning with a battered body all for nothing.

    I feel the forwards are good enough but Diskin's use of them is hopeless. We need better halves but we haven't a chance of getting anyone. To get rid of Diskin is a great idea but who in their right mind would come to a club like Oldham. No spectators, no development plan, no ground, no money. All we have is two kits and a bagful of balls.

    Sadly, I can't see a future for our, a once great club. We will be a Bramley, Chorley, Kent Invincta, Mansield Marksmen, Huyton, and more - just a memory.

    Let's look on the bright side it's only Toulouse away next week!!!!!!!! The bookies will be generous and give us 100 start.

  6. A game we have to win.

    This isn't a game to mess about with the team BUT I'd drop Bent, put Charnock in at loose forward and play Green at stand-off. Return Bridge to the second row with Langtree. Sadly, I can't think who else we can play at fullback who can catch the high balls, that's the only reason why Abram is in the side.

  7. So sad to hear of the plight of Salford. Two great seasons. Grand Final and last year at Wembley are what dreams are made of.

    Like Oldham and Swinton and Salford, once you've lost your "home". Watersheddings, Station Road and the Willows our clubs were on a downward spiral - some a lot faster than others. Do you remember when sooperdooperleague was first mooted that our three great clubs should merge to become Manchester - it makes you think "what if?2

    All the best Salford hang onto the memories.

  8. If we do what we've always done we will always get what we've gotten  -  a right pasting!!!!!

    Diskin has lost the plot and the trust of the loyal fans. Is it time for him to go before it's too late?

  9. Spoke to the manager of the bar, he said they couldn't sell any beer using cash and they didn't have any card machines. He said they will have them for the next game.

    Good to see you've got your priorities right!

  10. The club really shot themselves in the foot, first live match, brilliant day, lots of sunshine and unable to get a drink OF ANYTHING!! The stewards closing areas off even at the end of the game forcing spectators to go right around the ground to get out. A public service disaster.

    What really worried me about the game was the attendance. The first game back with spectators, take away the Widnes support I would reckon we had about 200 Oldhamers.

    I am not sure that Widnes are full time pros but what a luxury being able to play Matty Smith at loose forward!

    We haven' got anyone on our books with the skill to change things and sadly the blame has to be at Diskin's door because he signed most of these players.

    Next home game £4.50, instead of the £19, and a pint at home. The beauty being I can turn it off.
