  1. What happens to the money raised from your £5 entrance fee you might ask. Firstly, in memory of Dave Stringer aka @opinions4u, a respected OWTB member/contributor and whom the Latics Forum is on OWTB is affectionately named after, 50% of the money raised will be donated to his chosen charity, The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Charity: https://www.roycastle.org/ Secondly, OWTB is run/managed by volunteers and is an independent / free fans forum that (if you're reading this) I assume - like me - you value. 50% of the money raised from Prediction League will be donated to OWTB running costs; Good causes? All you've got to do is; Pay the £5 entrance fee via PayPal to stevie_j@owtb.co.uk (Please note the underscore) with your OWTB username in the comments box and your name will appear in the following Participants thread; Keep popping back into this thread as I explain more about how it works and what's new.
  2. ....he could seek to remove the football club - for not honouring the terms of its lease/rent, which indefensibly Marco isn’t doing - and look to redevelop it for commercial gain.... I’m sure, with appropriate sweeteners, he could find a way of developing it into a housing estate... he’s already done so on some of it / has planning permission to do more....
  3. .....he was to blame for leaving Corney in charge though... they - TTA - could’ve sold lock, stock & barrel on more than one occasion, but were asking silly money.... I hope the FLG have made him see sense on price.... although I fear not.
  4. Honest about what? Saying they want to oust the owner of the football club? That would be one hell of an aggressive objective to announce. I wouldn’t go public with that, even if I harboured those thoughts.... ....Blitz wants to sell the land.... he could develop houses / flog it to amazon/Tesco et al.... Marco hasn’t got the money to buy it.... so this group have stepped in (they may require funding) to save it from that outcome. If Marco ran the club properly - you cannot argue that he does - then they may be happy to park any ambition to oust him, even if they ultimately would like to. If Marco is running the club in such a way that we run the risk of admin/liquidation, then the FLG being his landlord may just be the thing that saves the club in the end.
  5. Do you know anything of my posting history on here?
  6. League position isn’t the only measure.... we were close to administration under Corney - we may not be far off with Marco either (we don’t know the relative health of club’s finances as he doesn’t submit them).... but there is a scenario whereby the finances are now better and that would mean - regardless of league position & the dubious transfer policy being employed - things are not worse.
  7. Would take some doing that.... but he’s made a wonderful start.....
  8. ...you could've said the same of Tarky at one stage. He's about to go for £40m if some journos are to be believed......
  9. Pleased with that..... so long as we don't flog him before this time next year......

  12. ....to be fair... I’ve been lamenting Marco for not stocking enough at the games I’ve been to.... and it would appear it’s Blitz who’s been taking the p1ss. I shoulda known better. The c%#t.
