  1. Here's what you could have won? These sketches from OAFC's graphics desiner's twitter account show a blue Ajax kit was under some kind of consideration at one point, as well as a kit combining the red pinstripes of the Prem kit with the hooped kit from a couple of years after it. I imagine they are from the fan consultation they had, before it was ultimately decided to have a solid blue and a red and white stripes.
  2. Hmmm, how about... "The shirt is a classic Oldham design, being blue with white trim, which has been the standard Latics look since 1972. The gradient, changing from lighter blue to a darker shade, represents the subtly different shades of blue worn over the years. There is also the slightest touch of tangerine, which represents the six year spell that the club wore that colour at home." With stripes as the away, and if a blue and white 1910-1966 look is to come in the special cup kit, that's the four main kit designs we've had represented in our range next season.
  3. Mood here is down, fair enough, but I think this kit is really nice! Gorgeous bit of detail.
  4. https://www.oldhamathletic.co.uk/news/2020/july/04072020-hummel-20-21-home-shirt/ Really smart imo. (on second thought, maybe a few too many colours going on. Royal blue, navy blue, white, orange, red.) As it says on the official site, a special third commemorative kit is also being made, which will be worn at home in cup games. The classic blue and white?

  6. I don't think it is, but I've just imagined how a kit might look in the old blue/white style, but with navy blue instead of white. Hmm.
  7. Looks like the blue kit will be in the recently seen gradient style, fading from royal blue at the top of the shirt, to navy blue at the bottom. I expect it will have white shorts/socks with it, which could be swapped with the striped kit's navy blue shorts/socks.
  8. Festus Arthur (ex-youth) has signed for Hull City from Stockport for an undisclosed fee.
  9. Watch the 1990 FA Cup Semi vs Man Utd, and the replay, as well as the League Cup final against Nottm Forest, in full here: https://footballia.net/teams/oldham-athletic-afc There are also 17,098 other historical games to delve into on this monster site.
  10. Funny isn't it, you'd almost think they wanted to fail the safety inspection with comments like that...
  11. I haven't been going much at all lately, in part because more often than not, going to Latics meant watching a team that wasn't worth getting behind, not worth supporting. But these last two games have been enjoyable, not because there's lots of talent on display (although there's flashes, McCann, love watching Smith), but they play like they give a shit, and really want to win. That should be the bare minimum, but at the moment, they're a team worth getting behind, a team worth supporting. I'm not trying to make a deep comment or an important point really, but I know there will be plenty like me who are in two minds about whether to go to games, and thought I would offer my thoughts. And it was quite exciting at 1-1 when both teams were going for it, made me realise it's all too rare now you see both teams trying to win.
  12. D.Segbe played down the left on Saturday and was somewhat effective there.
  13. My second game I've been to this season, got to love a come from behind win. Glad to see Segbe played off the left wing, as he was in the second half of the Burton game. His atrocious finishing can be hidden away there, and he is somewhat effective. Some genuinely decent stuff played, particularly enjoyed McCann was it? sending two Crawley players for a sausage roll. That fake goalkeeper injury on the hour mark thing that Dino apparently always does is audacious shithousery and I'm all for it. I'd say currently Latics are worth going to see, but I don't blame anyone for refusing. If only we had different owners, I really like what Dino's managed to do since coming in. Hopefully Crawley's decision to employ Ollie Palmer and turn up at Oldham Athletic wearing white and blue instead of red sees them thrown out of the league.
  14. First game I've been to this season. I liked the change to 3-5-2 at 30 minutes. Interestingly Azankpo played more off the left with Smith more up the middle. Azankpo miles better in that role.
