Oldham made hats before it made cotton, hence Roughyeds. Although there is a counter theory that it came from locals being a bit fighty.

There are two good articles in the January 2019 edition of 'When Saturday Comes'. One by Brian Simpson titled 'Team Spirit - Latic Acid', about dropping support for Man U and supporting Latics from Premier League to Checkatrade. The other by Dan Turner titled 'Distant Echoes' about supporting Latics after moving down south.

Really good read, as was Dan Turner's entry. Although his line about singing 'Always look on the bright side of life', and having it returned back at us with gusto after you know what brought back some long since repressed bad memories :bigcry: 

 

A mate of mine chucked a podcast my way about our 89-94 seasons too. It's a bit shambolic, but it's a fairly nice listen, and I enjoyed it overall.

I regularly type 'Oldham' into Acast and haven't found much. Nice one. Bedtime listen

If people hit a certain "like" per sentence ratio I have to bail.

It like, doesn't need to like happen and I like can't like stand it. I think Suzie Dent calls it "That twat Steven Gerrard effect".

(No problem with Monty's singular and appropriate usage above).

Couldn’t help thinking yesterday that , in “days gone by”,the Bury fans would have been stood on the uncovered Rochdale Road end.

That would have been icing on the cake 😁

The side panelling of the Chaddy being damaged won’t have helped keep the away fans warm.

 

 

I wonder who was responsible for the damage, quite likely to have been the weather but wouldn’t rule out the likes of Blackburn.

Huddled together like Antarctic penguins only to come out and flap their wings and squawk at the ref when our fourth goal was given.
