Brian McDermott to Oldham.


Recommended Posts


 

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Didn't even consider him on my wish list.  

Happily surprised.

Could make a snide comment about him saying big city franchises were the future but just happy to have him bk in the game tbh.

Was that comment not about Super League though? Don't think he's ever said clubs below that level should cease to exist or not strive to be the best they can.

Having been brought up in Oldham and spent a little time in Toronto, I can confirm Oldham has better pie shops and invented the tubular bandage. Bring on Super League.

Toronto Wolfpack head coach Brian McDermott believes Super League needs to be competed for by big city teams, including Toronto, New York, London and Barcelona, in order for it to grow.

Perhaps the queen can nominate Oldham as a city during her platinum anniversary next year.  Then he'll feel at home.   

Meanwhile Oldham lad Sir Kev who he bad mouthed at Leeds moves on to fame and fortune!

“Few thought him even a starter.There were many who thought themselves smarter. But he ended PM, CH and OM. An Earl and a Knight of the Garter.”

By banning clubs from reaching SL you are gutting them. Anyway, conversation for another time.

And they told me you'd all be useless in a crisis!

Not necessarily, some clubs don't want to be in SL and it's one of those never ending conversations on here. 

Anyway, it sounds a good and positive move for Oldham, be interested to learn the level of involvement he will have as a consultant.

Most clubs do and if Oldham had a snug stadium they would want to be there. We talk about people but infrastructure is 100 times more important , which is what so many of our clubs don´t have.

Perhaps he's just waiting for the chance to coach London again next season
