  1. Past hour
  2. I asked him if we'd be seeing him again next season at the Boundary Blues End of Season do earlier and he didn't fill me with confidence.
  3. Our next manager I reckon....
  4. Agreed - Connor was amongst the last to leave - his attitude as well as his undoubted talent appears first class. On which note, Peter Clarke is an absolute legend. Nicer guy you couldn't wish to meet and fantastic with the kids. Hopefully he keeps playing for a little while yet, but if in the future wants to go into coaching the club should do everything it can to make it possible.
  5. I don't know him LRB, but tweeted him the other day, so I've tweeted him your clip, I'm sure he'll be pleased.
  6. This post has come about because I asked for some proof. I specifically stated an email saying "we understand it to be the case" isn't proof because I knew that was all you had. Turned out I was right. It's an assumption. Refunds offered so accept if you're not happy. If you haven't donated then it doesnt really matter to you or it shouldn't
  7. Take that down for a few months eh - Boro's new manager might not have a clue who he is....
  8. He's also very good at ten pin bowling and a thoroughly, thoroughly nice man....
  9. Jesus fucking Christ lads......
  10. We know how good he is but your comment pre-supposes the new manager will know what he's like. If Gibson brings in another foreign coach then he won't have a clue and will, more than likely want his own choice there.
  11. Guzan's going back to the states. Valdes won't stay in The Championship. Konstanwhatsisname is ancient. Boro should give Ripley a chance next season. Would love him to stay, but just don't see it.
  12. I seem to recall playing Plymouth on a Friday night
  13. In the Championship, Valdes will be off - probably to the MLS. Guzan is also off, which leaves them with an untried Spaniard, and then the best keeper in League 1. I actually think Boro can save some serious cash by releasing both Valdes and Guzan, and simply giving Ripley the chance he fully deserves next season. And good luck to him, too.
  14. I'll be interested to see where he ends up, more so than your average loan player that's for sure. But I agree, if he ends up back in League One, there's 24 Championship teams that will be missing out.
  15. Guzan has said he is retiring and heading back to the States
  16. The guy is destined for the premier league. I'd love him to be back here, I really would but it feels like we are holding him back if we keep him another year. The only way we are going to keep him is if we show real intent for a promotion push in the transfer market to get him a bit of silverware but is that likely given our current predicament? Highly doubtful. Thanks for everything you have brought to the club Connor. Now go grab yourself the career you trully deserve
  17. No. The bloke is a brilliant goalkeeper. He shouldn't be playing third division football. Eternally grateful for keeping us up but let him go prove himself at the very top.
  18. Piece from tonight's Oldham Comical....."And while conceding that Ripley will be heading back to Middlesbrough - though Athletic are "desperately trying" to get him back". We must stand some chance in getting him back for 17/18. Middlesborough have 4 senior goalkeepers: Valdez, Guzan, Mejias (all contracted to 2018) and Konstantopoulos (2017). Now it looks like the Boro are down so I'm guessing that whoever comes in as their new manager would look at their contracted keepers first to try and help them back up. That would, hopefully, leave Ripley possibly going out on loan again which won't be a Championship club so that should put us in a good position for his signature. Lots of ifs and buts.........but I'm an optimist.

  21. Today

  23. Thanks Opinions, I'd take your best theorising over mine any day and yes I'd hope it's unlikely too
  24. C'mon Paul. No cheating. From the memory only?
  25. The very sounds are reverberating around the streets of Oldham as we type and read.
  26. Oh and it can't go unsaid, "Can't believe the club have yet again pissed away the chance to sign a £500k striker when he was available for free and ready to sign for us, the board are clueless, Corney out, etc, etc"
