I know what am about to say has a virtually no chance of happening but:

What would happen if we went through January and didn't sign anyone?
By that I mean would those defending Simon Corney then switch allegiances?

Would that be the straw that broke the camels back?

Like I say I appreciate its virtually got no chance of being the case but, this is Oldham Athletic lol.

There's no allegiance to switch to. Most fans want Corney out but they don't want him to just pack up his shit and leave because they still want a club to support.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit if we brought nobody in.

Anyone who does come in will be inferior to Winchester or an untried rookie. I think that's a given the way things are going

Don't twist my words. The club simply ain't willing or ain't able to attract players good enough to pull us out of this situation. If we are letting Winchester go what makes you think his replacement will be an improvement?

Correct we were told Kelly and Dieng would be replaced with adequate replacements who wanted less money, that's gone well hasn't it.

Last few January windows show that we do business at this time of year.

Imagine how good we'd be if we did some business in May/June time, wouldn't that be revolutionary.

Indeed, have to assume the funds aren't there at that time of year.

I can turn that response on it's head and say what makes you think his replacement won't be a improvement?
I can answer both our responses by saying 1) untried/unwanted loanees are a gamble and last year we got lucky but having said that Sheridan was a motivating factor and 2) Robinson would probably play Messi alongside Clarke.

Incorrect, last few January windows shows that we wait for it to shut and then we go picking up free agents and loanees in February.

Last year Gerrard, Lafferty and Palmer in Jan, Holloway and Main early Feb.

Year before Kean, Mellis, Murphy and Wilkinson in Jan.

Year before IIRC it was Harkins and Worrall.
