  1. I presume that this is an attempt at humour @wiseowl because if you are being straight with what you say then I think you should reveal who your ‘good authority’ is. Earlier in in the week we had posters using Branger and Vera starting games as evidence that the manager is being told which players to play. Neither started or came off the bench yesterday - so did Mo sanction that as well?
  2. Takes our number of current international players to three which means we can ask for games to be postponed on international weekends...😮
  3. Agree with that team if no Wheater. One concern though is the lack of height in that back four.
  4. That's how I read the question. I believed (rightly or wrongly) that the question was asking which of the two parties was running the better campaign.* (*) in a similar way to which group ran the better Brexit campaign (Remain or Leave) - in my opinion the' Leave' campaign was far superior to the 'Remain' campaign. But it doesn't mean that I voted 'Leave' 🙄
  5. I picked Team Lemsagam in response to the original question. Which doesn't mean that I actually believe one side or t'other; just which side I believe is winning the battle of PR and letters. The FLG has a golden opportunity here but I don't think that it is taking it.
  6. 🚨 TICKET UPDATE 🚨 So far, 666 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s game against @officialbantams. There are only 247 tickets remaining from our allocation. Supporters buying Adult tickets are advised to buy in advance as there is a £5 increase on the day. #oafc £5 increase o the day? That’s a bit rich...😲
  7. Given that it is the very first post by @oafcmb I was going to overlook the error... but nah...
  8. Good to see so many positive comments. Yes, there is a long way to go and yes we conceded two in added time but Banide demanded a reaction and he got it. We competed for 92 minutes but then seemed to lose our shape and discipline. Something to build on or more of the same this Saturday? Intrigued to see who starts at Bradford. We can but hope that Wheater is back. As for the rest of the defence will Stott and Hamer return to the starting line up and will Nepomuceno retain his place? Did Fage do enough to convince Banide of his worth? *disclaimer - This post concentrates solely on any positives to be gleaned from Team performance - the rest of the shenanigans going on at the club have been (and will continue to be) dealt with elsewhere.
  9. There is no need for any personal insults at anyone imho 😲
  10. And back to tonight’s game... Banide in his pre match interview: “We need to have a result for our confidence but if we win 1-0 and they hit the post ten times and have 20 shots you don’t have insurance. “You need to have insurance when you play on your position, when you have the ball and when you don’t have the ball. "You take insurance when you play to your potential, that is important.” I am making an assumption that he means assurance not insurance.. 👀 Either way it shows that he is not happy with the quality and the effort so far.
  11. I agree with the main gist of your post. However I would not class Sylla and Azankpo as substandard nor would I include Kokos in that description as we have not really seen him yet. Then there is Fage who looks a tidy player to me. The since departed De La Paz too seemed okay when he got one of his infrequent chances. The rest have not shown enough that’s true. If, as seems likely, Abdallah’s plan is to showcase these ‘gems’ in order to sell on then the plan is simply not working.
  12. Apart from Manchester United that is. Season 2018/2019 Man Utd were paid £142.5 million in tv revenues. They had a wage bill of £170 million for the first team squad alone. Then there are the salaries for the academy/ U21 players plus managerial and coaching staff not forgetting the administrative side of the club. And they pull in an average £2 million a home game from ‘bums on seats’... money they need to pay the inflated salaries of their underperforming superstars. Don’t you just love ‘em... 🤬
  13. https://www.oldhamathletic.co.uk/news/2019/august/12082019-quirky-catering-partnership/ A couple of interesting quotes in this article: “Over the 2019/20 campaign, Quirky will now manage all kiosks inside Boundary Park and the match-day hospitality catering.” “Our eventual aim is to have local food and beer served by local staff in clean and well staffed kiosks, that said it wont happen over night. We are currently looking at the facilities in each kiosk individually which will ultimately guide our product offering.” 🤔
  14. Interested enough to post that you’re not interested though...👀
