  1. Excellent post. Sums it up perfectly; somehow, this lunatic needs to be as far away from the club as possible. Permanently. But how do you get someone else in? That's the crunch.
  2. For those of us that don't have the dubious benefit of BT Sport, can someone give a brief idea of what he said, please? We can probably guess from the thread title, but some meat on the bones would be appreciated.
  3. You may be right, you may be wrong. Only time will tell.
  4. I think you'll find attendance and season ticket sales show the opposite.
  5. Whether or not you agree/disagree with the Trust's approach or you are with or against a protest, at least moves are being made to let Lemsagam know how he is held in disregard by the majority of the fan base. It may not bother him as he doesn't seem to be the type to be affected by those that disagree with him. The only effect seems to be a sacking, or so we are led to believe. If fans want to hold a protest, that's fine. If others don't want to join in, that's fine too. Some will never set foot in Boundary Park again whilst he owns the club. That's a sad indictment of how the club is run, but that's fine. Others will continue to support the club and attend matches. That's also fine. It boils down to an individual's take on what is a very sad situation. The fact that Abdallah has not even had the good grace to acknowledge the Trust's letter, irrespective of how you feel about it or it its content, speaks volumes about the man's arrogance, lack of manners or social skills and total disregard for the fans that he says are the lifeblood of the club. What he says and what he does are polar opposites. The really sad thing is that we all, I think, welcomed him as it meant the Corney reign was over. I actually shook his hand at Oxford, thanking him for rescuing our club and looking forward to a brighter future. He said, "Thank you. I want to do this for the fans". Had I known then what I know now (that he's apparently a dishonourable and deceitful individual), I'd rather have shaken his throat. He is slowly but surely destroying the football club that I have loved and supported for very nearly 69 years and it hurts. It won't stop me going to matches whenever I can because that's what I look forward to; supporting the players and the manager, meeting up with like minded fans that I have come to know over the years. I am fully in support of what every single fan decides to do. It's their choice and no one can say it is right or wrong. What I do know is that should I bump into Abdallah again, it won't be a cordial meeting. It will be an opportunity to vent my spleen (in polite terms) and let him know what a charlatan he is. (I said it would be polite). Now let's get 3 points from Swindon this afternoon and we just might all feel a bit better if this run continues.
  6. Not surprised. He's been on fire in recent weeks. Can't believe he's the same player we had.
  7. He didn't half have us playing some cracking football. If you score 3, we'll score 4. Not a bad philosophy. Happy birthday, big man.
  8. Sorry, Diego, it wasn't me. Did you think I was one of the antiques? Also, since the post yesterday from @BristolaticMrs, the fund has grown to £717.50 (£802.50 including Gift Aid). We are so grateful for every penny. Only a couple of weeks now before I'll be in the local shopping centre sat at a table with balloons, banners, leaflets, collection tins and the like. I hope it's a warm day!
  9. Wasn't this Birkett SLO malarkey just an April fools gag? At least I bloody hope so. Surely even Abdallah has more sense that that.
  10. Give him a 2 year contract, don't interfere, give him some dosh and see where it takes us.
  11. That's some away following. 2,342 on a Tuesday night. Only 2,801 Latics, so that's quite a few stayaways. They missed a good performance. Missile was MOM for me. He didn't half put a shift in.
  12. According to the fishal, were playing them on Saturday, 7:45 pm kick off. That going to be some rush back from Colchester. https://www.oldhamathletic.co.uk/news/2019/april/01042019-match-officials/
  13. With 777 from Grimsby, wouldn't we normally expect a gate of around the 4,300 mark this season? I'll stand corrected if wrong.
  14. Indeed it is, but it sounded like he kept us in it when we weren't threatening very much at 0-0 and even at 1-0.
  15. But only 10 off 7th, which is more important. Only 1 game in hand over 7th, though.
  16. With 51 points, I would hope we're safe now. Still want to beat the Bin Dippers, though.
