    For what it's worth, I think AL wants his imports to be superstars, we storm up the League playing amazing football, successive promotions, sell players for millions while bringing new ones almost as good for tuppence, big backers and sponsors attracted, Latics fans are happier than ever and love him, fans from all around start to follow us, Champions League Trophy and a statue of him in solid gold erected by public subscription outside the 90,000 AL Stadium (which he owns). I'm just not quite sure he's getting there yet.


    Barry would have settled for the statue erected by pub(l)ic subscription.



    Well, he is a bit of a knob, apparently. So I'm told.

    I like Murray and think it's a positive appointment as for my 'agenda' my source was Tony Philliskirk a man I've known for years and I have no reason to believe he'd throw me a curve ball or anyone else for that matter, maybe the clown has had a change of heart but I can assure you they had plans to get rid.

    This may be very wide of the mark, but don't (some) clubs have an obligation to have an Academy? Summat to do with Ofsted and funding? Or am I totally confused? It happens.

    What about on Oldham Edge?

    Well, it certainly doesn't work on the Edge of Bristol. Actually, I've not tried Edge. I could give it a go.


    Bollocks, that didn't work either. :computer:  :rant.sml:  I think I might ask Mrs B to have a shuftie; she used to have her own website. Er, excuse me, dear :wub:

  4. Once again, not for the first time, we have a situation where the club fail to respond to correspondence and requests for meetings for over two months. I am sure that if the FLG were telling porkies over this, it would soon be found out. AL and Co have previous for ignoring such items, namely the Trust and the FCA. If AL was accepting of the Ts & Cs for last season, but sees them somewhat differently this season (apart from an admitted 4% increase), then he is, in my eyes, just playing silly buggers to fuel his own ego.


    Since he arrived, there has hardly been a week/month gone by without him stirring up unrest within the camp and among supporters. Think back to these little nuggets:

    • Fanegate/Byrnegate
    • players being made to train with the yoofs, this not allowed to be selected for the first team squad (unless completely unavoidable)
    • interference with team selection (don't anyone tell me it didn't happen)
    • numerous sackings of the backroom staff (they can't all have been rubbish at their jobs)
    • the shoddy way in which Clarke and Baxter were treated
    • Pete Wild walking away from his dream job with the team he has loved since he was a lad
    • Mick Priest and Chris Millington gone without so much as a whisper
    • Andy Rhodes similarly departed
    • Scholes walking after 31 days (yes, I know there are those who reckon it was because he wasn't up to it)
    • Other players apparently gone; De la Paz, Benteke, O'Grady without a mention

    There's probably more if I could but remember it all, but just that little list tells me that there is a great deal of unrest in the camp since AL arrived, then made his bruv a director and re-recruited Detective Redfleece. Everything that happens tells me that the man is a megalomaniac who simply fires anyone who remotely disagrees with him and, in the case of the Joe Royle Stand/OEC twists the details (and often the truth) to suit his own agenda. I wouldn't trust the bloke an inch and, provided the FLG are acting in good faith and are honest and open about their full intentions at the meeting on 27th July, I wish them well. It might, just might, be a way of ending this dictatorship that is strangling our club and creating an ever increasing divide amongst the fans.


    A final show of how poor communication is between club and fans is this; how many of us knew that the Forest Green Rovers tickets were on open sale? I didn't. I haven't seen anything on the fishal. I simply looked at ticket availability on spec and there they are. Available to everyone.

  5. I'll admit I haven't followed all of this, so I'll stand corrected if I've got this wrong, but here goes.

    1. North Stand/OEC is/was owned by Blitz/Gazal/Brassbank
    2. FLG have bought/are buying the North Stand/OEC from the above
    3. AL and Blitz/Gazal/Brassbank didn't exactly see eye to eye
    4. AL is not likely to see eye to eye with the FLG
    5. AL is now very pissed off with the FLG and is doing what he can to piss them off in return
    6. AL will not be able to close the North Stand once the League season starts, so gains nothing
    7. AL is a fruit loop/knobhead/clown who chucks his teddies out when anyone opposes him

    That's my very simplistic view of the situation, so I'm genuinely interested to see where I've got it wrong.

    As suspected, Paul Murray has come back to the club to take the reins as boss of the youth team.


    Got to be seen as a positive, as long as he can keep his head down and not fall foul of the regime.

    I hope he teaches every player how to put the oppo goalkeeper on their arse like he does at the 5 minutes point of this video:


    Great day out, that was. It was my birthday, too.


    Welcome back, Muzza.

    Try internet explorer.

    Done that. Same result.

    How about right clicking the video and selecting open in a new tab - I have to do that to see twittered videos on OWTB.

    Right clicking the video does nothing at all.

    Checked through all of that and can't find anything that may cause the problem.


    Thing is, it has never been a problem before, it works on my phone and on all other videos from anywhere else. I'm starting to think it's something in the OAFC site settings that may be the issue, but can't think why. Appreciate your input gents, and I'm still open to more suggestions.

    Not watched on my laptop for a while so can't help you there unfortunately. I imagine someone will recommend clearing cookies

    I'd already done that and cleared God knows what else, but still no joy. I'll keep trying.


    I think it could be something in the OAFC site settings but, if that's the case, why doesn't it affect watching on my phone?
