  1. Since we are coming to the end of this campaign, who do you think will be retained from the present squad? Some will argue it depends which division we are in but I'd like to have a squad that will win every game in division 1 and holds its own in the championship. I'm sure other teams are putting their 2024 squads together as we speak.

    Just Chat

    I've noticed like others that we often go off at a tangent, so I thought let's have a chat page. My chat is, on Sunday at the game I was talking to Sean Whitehead about Blackpool Borough and we couldn't remember the name of their ground. And last night at about 5am I started to think about all of the great Rugby grounds, with memories, that have now gone. Beginning with Watersheddings.
  3. Can't wait for the biggest game of the season. Win this one we will have one hand on the Champions Trophy. Let's hope we can field a full set of forwards.
  4. Do us both a favour and beat them overthill! Who knows the game at your place could be the title decider.
  5. The Boys are back in town! I just hope it's fine, and if it is we will break the 2000 barrier. It's a bit strange with Hunslet they beat Keighley and get hammered by the Oldham "A" team. Surely, the hairnets aren't that good? Or is it Hunslet are struggling like most teams with injuries and just got a team out on the pitch.
  6. Let's hope the Yeds play to the structure they were playing to in the first half last week for the full 80 minutes. Longy will have problems picking his forwards for what is always a forward battle at Derwent Park. I hope to see some of the injured backs getting some playing time for the difficult games coming up.
  7. It will be interesting to see who Sean plays against a side we should, on paper, paste. I would play the strongest side possible so as to get some confidence back into the side. We have to be honest, the last two games have been dreadful and I know we have got injuries but so do other sides. Both K. and NWC had injuries and had to bring in loan players. I've gone on about points difference from the start of the season, I still feel it will come down to it. With that thought K. won't be easing off, they will amass has many points in every game they play. We have to do the same.
  8. I bought over £50's worth of Law Cup tickets and still haven't had a refund. Is anyone else in the same position? If YOU did get a refund how did you do it? If no-one got a refund, with over a thousand Yeds coming overthill, they made a real killing - enough to pay for the Oldham "A" team!
  9. Got to get another big score to keep the pressure on the chasing pack. The question being posed is will Longy use his fringe players again. This didn't work out too well the last time he tried it. My opinion is you MUST always play your strongest side based on how well they train and fit the plays being worked on.
  10. We are top after the Midland game on points difference - 6. Sadly for Newcastle, we have to really put the points on the board to strengthen our position. This I feel means putting our strongest team out so really entertaining the crowd. We don't want a lack lustre event like the Cornwall game.

    I know it's a bit soon to be talking about the Keighley game but somebody in the FanBar yesterday said there were already 3 coaches going! How do I book a place and won't it be great to turn it into yet another home game.
  12. It's going to be a long journey home for the Cornish Lads! Probably leave after 20 minutes. Any thoughts of what the score might be? I reckon 86 - 6.

    Looking forward to yet another hard game - but one we can win. Does anyone know if there any coaches going?
  14. With three players going down last Sunday, what is the present situation with the York game coming up.
  15. jroyales


    Whose brave enough to name the starting 13? Also, the score.
  16. Last chance to move onto the next round. NWC seem to be hitting form just as we have lost ours. It will be interesting how many turn up after the Doncaster debacle. Sadly, I can't be there, I've got to find something to do.
  17. The season started brilliantly, the Yeds scoring for fun with free flowing rugby the likes of we hadn't seen for years. I feel this was down to Littler and his coaching team. The wheels fell off the waggon when Paga was suspended and Littler was sacked. Our game changed completely into the dreaded one man rugby evidenced over the years. It makes you wonder were we would have finished in the league if we had started the way we finished losing to near bottom teams and nearly to Rochdale. All I can hope for is for all the talk about players coming in, and taking the division by storm comes to fruition.
  18. Hope for a bit of luck in the fourth time of asking. Are there any coaches going and if so what time are they leaving Oldham, and from where?
  19. I've spoken to several people about how the play offs work and I am still none the wiser. Does anyone know how it works?

    It's sad to hear so many bad comments about Littler. His team, this season, have been playing some of the best rugby I have seen for many a year. I feel the wheels fell off the wagon when Paga was suspended. He created the link between forwards and backs, he was the first man so enabling Rydyard to play his game he also, on many occasions caused panic in defences. The draw and loss against Dewsbury and losses against Doncaster were wins and it was poor game management that lost and drew those games - it wasn't Littler's. Yesterday's game wasn't his fault. He, again didn't have a scrum half, he didn't get two players sin binned, he didn't have players making wrong choices and he wasn't in control of Hunslet's spoiling tactics ignored by the ref. With Paga or Sheridan in the side, we wouldn't be having this discussion. With a full squad with Littler we would have been pushing for automatic promotion.
  21. Has anybody heard anything about who might be with us next season?
  22. Lots of rumours flying around in Oldham that Littler HAS been signed up as your coach for next season. Anything from your side would help clear up some of these rumours. As an aside how is Mr Hamilton doing? Hopefully more than he did for us.
  23. Congratulations on a great win. All the best at Wembley. Hopefully better than last time - a painful memory!
  24. Looking forward to coming over on Friday. It's a shame we will be without of our two form players for this game. Suspended for one game by a Dewsbury ref. Coming over on a Friday night isn't the best due to the traffic. What's the best route at that time?

    Hoping for a full house and what should be a great game. A lot depends, as usual, how the referee performs - we haven't had the rub of the green in our last two games - same referee!!
