  1. No. That’s to Euston. There is no benefit to pre-booking The onwards travel from Euston.
  2. Even if this was relevant it completely contradicts what the manager said on the podcast.
  3. I have no idea how many people have signed up but based on the support this seems to be getting from people on here and elsewhere you would imagine that by next week they could have two or three hundred names to add to the signatories of this letter. That has to help the credibility of it rather than it being just from those who have launched PTB. It seems a sensible approach.
  4. Unfortunately the previous posts are correct. I also held shares in Oldham Athletic Football Club Ltd and attended the AGM each year until the company went out of existence following Moore's exit. The new company that was formed is a separate entity to the previous one with new shares.
  5. Last week we won but probably deserved to lose. This week we lost but probably deserved to win. Whether you want to concentrate on performances or actual results we are looking at one win out of our opening six matches. That has to be a concern.
  6. We have had no success whatsoever for the best part of 3 decades. I wouldn't be too worried about coming across as feeling entitled to be honest.
  7. I presume you mean me Tracy. The independent supporters club ran in the mid 90s. It was founded and run by John Stanley who is sadly no longer with us. It primarily ran away travel and social events. John had his run-ins with the club (well Alan Hardy) but it didn't actively get involved in club politics. Stop the Rot, and latterly SAFE (Save Athletic's Future Existence) were the groups who actively protested to get rid of JW Lees and got involved when things were falling apart under Chris Moore. When the Trust first formed, it was really a follow on from SAFE. There are still quite a few from STR and SAFE who still go to games on a regular basis but plenty more who don't. For what it is worth I think there is an opening at the moment for an independent group but I think there is a lack of consensus amongst fans as to what the right way forward is. This makes it very difficult to form a cohesive group. The Trust is currently in a very difficult position with a director on the club's board and another director working with the FLG. It can very easily get ripped apart and I am not clear whether Darren speaks for himself or the Trust when he engages on Social media. As a director of the club I understand his positivity towards what is going on but as a director of the Trust, that worries me. It is right that the Trust uses its position to try and effect change from the inside and that to be challenging the ownders publicly makes that difficult. This is where a new organisation working in parallel with the Trust could be very powerful.
  8. Champions - Plymouth Dark Horses - Swindon Relegated - Macclesfield and Cambridge Tics - 17th Tics Top Scorer - Wilson Tics Player of the Season - Nepo Banny to last the season? - Yes
  9. Is this definitely right Tracy? Have the Trust been told that the accountant has gone with the club to Morocco? Very bizarre if true. I guess the accountant could be in Morocco on holiday, purely coincidental to the training camp. Alternatively this might suggest that the accountant has a broader role at the club which may well be a good thing.
  10. He wasn’t shite. He was pretty average though from a natural talent perspective. The thing was that his desire and work rate made up for his lack of natural talent. It doesn’t come as a big surprise that some people will look for those capable of moments of brilliance when identifying their favourite players whilst others will be attracted to those who gave their all for the club. Both views are perfectly reasonable. The story that surrounds Ernie will undoubtedly help keep him further forward in some fans’ thoughts than other players but those memories are still based upon what he did for the club at a time when things looked pretty grim (differently grim to now). There are other players who have been taken away too soon or been through very tough times after leaving the club. Their names are not filling these lists so maybe Ernie was a bit different.
  11. Not necessarily the best but three players who made Saturday's exciting: Beckett Baxter (1st time round) Wijnhard
  12. Hopefully this training camp means that we will pull a squad together over the next couple of weeks. 10 days in Morocco isn't going to come cheap and the only point of doing it is if we are taking most of the players who will be playing this coming season. This should be about team building and getting the players ready for the season ahead. That's not going to work with half a dozen first teamers and a load of trialists.
  13. This is the point so many people seem to miss. Corney had the chance, I believe, to sell to reputable people but always referred back to not wanting to sell to anyone who didn't have the club's best interests at heart. He was always looking for someone who would give him what he wanted and this is what we have ended up with.
