  1. When I make it to a Latics game one thing that really strikes me is the financial cost to those who go regularly. It isn’t cheap. And ultimately what makes it worth it - that connection to team and club - is fractured. Paying big money for a broken product - that’s simply not going to work. It’s as simple as that and the idiots in charge should be very worried. It’s easier to lose people than to bring them back.
  2. So Marco shrugs and justifies Frankie getting the axe at the sane table where he sits beside Barry who is still there. Jokers.
  3. Looks to me that it has already reached the stage where Dino has realised how bad things truly are, and doesn't give a toss whether he gets the axe or not... Hence he speaks out - to put the ball back in the owner's court. If he gets the axe, his reputation is - if anything - enhanced as he wanted the club to succeed but was stifled by shambolic ownership. If he doesn't get sacked at least he's speaking out trying to change things.
  4. Not sure why this went sideways. Never straightforward with Latics I suppose. Probably as close as we’ll get to lifting a cup any time soon too.
  5. Having read this post I am now going to make myself a nice coffee and head outside.
  6. What with being deeply embroiled in the Corney era, then deeply embroiled in this, I wonder if Barry Owen feels proud of himself tonight. He probably does. He should have found something else to nurture his ego other than football because to be involved in one football travesty could be considered unlucky. To be involved in two is damning.
  7. They’ll bottle this. It won’t happen. They’ll claim they got security advice to cancel it or something like that.
  8. All this about “value for money” - that’s hilarious. Maybe someone’s fancy fake watch is value for money. It was probably cheaper than what we have been paying for some fake footballers anyway. Horseshit has more value than that statement.
  9. He had a great game. Getting rave reviews. If we had made it work out with us we could possibly have sold him for a wad of cash - and he doesn’t speak a word of French as far as I’m aware.
  10. Jack Byrne comes on as sub for Ireland in meaningless friendly against Bulgaria.
  11. I’m not long back home after a happy trip with my son to give him his first day in Oldham and at Boundary Park. Loved being among my fellow Latics fans. But thought the team performance was poor, which was to be expected. Why does Vera jump just before or just after the high ball comes in? I tip my cap to the protestors for at least trying. And I emphasise with the boycotting. If I lived in Oldham I’d probably boycott too to be honest. Most of of all I empathise with those who still go. One or two buffoons aside, everyone I met was trying to make it the best day out it could be. Shame the spoofer owner isn’t doing likewise. I hope we rise again without him. Then my son will be able to say he was there all the way up.
  12. The worst thing about being the victim of a con is the urge to think you aren’t being stitched up.
  13. And I thought Crewe away under Dunn was a low. I remember feeling sickened at what I’d witnessed on the pitch, but glad to be on a very rare (for me) away Latics jaunt, to at least get my share of the pain. But f€&@“:g hell, it’s toxic now. Problems back then seemed almost solvable by a stroke like getting Shez back or.... getting Shez back. Where we are now... it’s way worse than we should be. It’s gone from a decline to being pummelled into the ground. At this lowest of the low, sadly for me, results don’t matter, manager doesn’t matter, league status doesn’t matter. I’ll love the club and the people - but not the owner or anyone who is linked to him. I saw on twitter someone mentioned AL had a fake watch. I know that in the early days he was stupid enough to flash it at agents when offering “name your price” wage negotiations. I noticed in his first press conference he kept it hidden. What a snake of a man. More buffoon than clown. And a nasty buffoon too, the worst type. Without wanting to be patronising, I love Latics and the people I meet every time I’m there. I’m proud of my roots and A ‘Marco’ L can ruin everything, except I think we’ll bounce back.... without the €&@t. Rant over. See you all at the Chesterfield match. And those who choose to stay away, cheers to you all too.
  14. This is exactly where I stand. I know i’m repeating myself here, but I’m heading to Boundary Park with my young lad for his first trip at the end of the month and it’s all very exciting - except for the fact that I know the club is in a shit storm. As far as my son is concerned we’re world beaters. I compare it to my first match with my father - 3-3 v Coventry in the Premiership. I was in my teens, and it was magical. And it’s not so much that we have declined - it’s more that I feel the club, the football magic that I experienced, is being abused. My son is 6 years old. I’m looking forward to the match regardless. My younger boy is 2... I hope we’re in a better place once he gets his turn to see Latics in action. So yeah. The heart has been tipped out. But if we can stay playing in Boundary Park and the current regime f€&?s off, it can be ripped back in. I don’t care what league we are in at that point. Having said all that, it’ll still be great being around lots of Latics fans with my young lad - we’re proud of our roots and as much as I despair about the stare our club is in nothing’s going to change that.
