    Frankie gone

    I really don't understand what AL gets out of it? If it's one big ego trip, he's got nothing but pissed off fans, pissed off suppliers and pissed off staff surrounding him. He has virtually no assets at the club. It's utterly bizarre. Fuck off you massive weirdo. Send the club into liquidation and let's get a consortium of local business owners and other investment and build from the bottom up. Fan owned. You never know, might get a few long-lost supporters with OAFC sewn into their DNA to return.

    Dennis Stott RIP

    I knew Dennis through my dad. met up with him for a match day pint a few times over the years. A thoroughly lovely man with a stellar sense of humour. Rest well, Dennis. Send us a bit of luck down, mate.

    Negative Atmosphere at BP ?

    I big part of the reason I've not been much in the pa=st couple of seasons has been because it's such a dour, unpleasant experience, although one of the few matches I got to last season was the 5-1 hammering of Northampton in the depths of winter. Just seems wherever you sit, there's some cunt sat in earshot who does nothing but relentlessly bleat and moan about something. Whether they're right or wrong it doesn't matter. It's miserable to have to listen to it. Never thought it would grind me down as much as it does but it finally did do. When others mentioned this as the reason for not going I couldn't empathise with them. Long thought it was something you just had to put yourself through to make the few outstanding times when it all clicks worthwhile. Now it just isn't. I'll drag myself off to a few no doubt. But I think following the years of Corney just ripping the heart out of the club followed by the incessant sniping and backbiting on social media it pretty much killing it stone dead for me. Regards, snowflake.

    Ex players and that

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45476430 It's quite sad but nothing you've not read before. Young kid-done-well gets giddy at going from £200 per week to £2,000 per week and goes off the rails faster than Topoff getting ejected from a ground. Hopefully he's learnt his lesson and has a steady career, albeit at a much lower level than he would most likely have had before he started racking lines up left, right and centre.

    Checkatrade .... boycott or not?

    Boycott the shit out of it. Then go when we get in the final. ?
  7. In the interests of correctness, and I'm very surprised Latics badger Prozac hasn't picked you up on it, is that it was a Monday night match. And Norwich chartered a plane, the fancy sods, for their supporters. Back on subject; how many did we take to Wigan away at the end of the 2003 season, on Easter Monday? I think we had the whole side of of the ground which is a pretty big stand. Must have been in excess of 5k. The bounce when we went 1-0 up inside 30 seconds was incredible.

    Beyond The Boundary levels of mirth, this.
  9. Ignore the first reply. Every club's forum have their dickheads. Well done, it's a great, incisive write-up. Look forward to reading the rest.

    OWTB 2018/19 Prediction League

    Thanks for the kind invite Andy. I'll have to sit it out unfortunately as I'd start off keen and just end up doing what I normally do with Fantasy Football leagues and lose interest after 2-3 weeks.
  11. I don't begrudge the club from making a couple of quid out of Johhny-come-lately's. You can purchase online and print at home so you can still do that on the morning of the match if you so desire (assuming that option is not whipped away at midnight the day before). I'll be doing that anyway as it's often on the morning of the match when I can be arsed / be allowed to go anyway. I can't imagine that many go "fuck it. £4 more? Nah, thanks!" anyway.

    "We should have stayed up"

    I'm quietly confident for this season but I'm totally realistic to expect it could fall to shit quite easily. The longer we remain in Division 2, for me it'll just increase the likelihood on us going into non-league. Really do need an immediate bounce back and get a long-lost feelgood factor in around the club.

    RIP Opinions4u

    Such a sad loss. I had a massive amount of respect for him the way he dealt with his illness with such stoicism. Looking at my little boy as I write this and I cannot bear thinking about leaving him behind at any point of my life. When I think about it that way, I really consider how lucky I am. The sincerest of condolences to Dave's family. Sad, sad news.

    Johan Branger signs

    AL wouldn't even be here if he couldn't bring in players he knows in order to develop and sell on. We have to accept this, as does any coach or manager. The buck has to stop when he's telling the manager who to pick though. That should always be merit-based.
