  1. England are off to a flier with a 1-0 win against Croatia, we witnessed shocking scenes in Denmark and Latics are in the news with the PTB home game boycott announced this week. There's a lot to talk about as always on BPAS!
  2. Matt & Ste are joined by Latics fan and co-host of the D3D4 Football Podcast, Chris Stringer to talk all things League One & Two. As Oldham go into their fourth season as a basement club, we discuss what is needed to triumph at this level, who are the teams to look out for next season and ask, have we really hit rock bottom yet?!

  3. Keith Curle has penned a two year deal with The Latics but was it the club that offered, or does KC drive a hard bargain? PTB have created a petition asking AL to sell the club but will it have any effect? What is really going on with the north stand? All questions we'll be trying to answer this week!

  4. Thanks both. We really appreciate you support and your feedback. We're listening and want to help unite so we can force change. To us, it feels like momentum is swinging our way.
  5. We don't want to be finding ourselves treading on eggshells in order to placate. I hope you'll agree we're trying to ask the difficult questions, of everyone on all sides, nor are we afraid of taking a position if we feel the weight of evidence suggests it is the right one to take. We agree that it's highly unlikely Barry's position on North stand ownership is the correct one. We laid bare what we know on this episode and it seems all is above board. We look forward to speaking with Simon Brooke & in a much detail as we did with Barry in the coming week or two. We'd like to get Simon Blitz on too. Your A-E points are all valid and worthy of consideration and we're not naïve to any of them, I think we showed as much in the way we conducted the interview, however Barry's contacts experience of working with the EFL/FA for instance and/or with other football clubs, such as Newport, could be of use & arguably come with less of A-E to consider..... and that's all we're really saying. Don't close the door and be prepared to talk. Stockport, Leyton Orient, Portsmouth and Brentford have all been on the pod over the season and all say supporters need to be united if they want to affect change. PTB are meeting Blackpool this week and will be on next week's episode to tell us what they learned from that conversation.
  6. We're not finding it tricky..... being balanced, whilst also taking a position on a topic. We're openly supporting PTB's stance on wanting the owner's out. Yet, we'd still treat Abdallah or Mohamed with respect - anybody, Barry included deserves that much - if we got the opportunity to interview them. We don't want Barry 'involved' any more than you do, but speaking to him and listening to what he has to say can be both revealing and confirming in the same breath. Until the club is under a new owner, ideally one owner of both land and club, why ignore Barry if he can be of help (because of what/who he knows) in moving on those who have cast such a dark shadow over this club for at least 10 years. That's all we're saying. In short, don't cut your nose off to spite your face.
  7. All very valid opinions. All we're saying is..... the likes of the Foundation and PTB shouldn't be afraid to speak to Barry in our opinion..... he may provide some insight that could prove useful. That's all.
  8. In a front of house role we'd agree with you.... but all we're saying is, he undoubtedly has experience & contacts that could be of use to us all in our bid to encourage Abdallah and Blitz to move on. Putting aside our differences and working for the greater good of the club means exactly that. That's part of reason we took the time to interview him. Whatever you think of Barry, he raised some valid points that are worth following up on.
  9. Thank you. It was your post on here (from last week) we were referring to on this week's episode too.
  10. Some supplementary listening/reading in relation to today's episode. PTB Notes from Blitz Q&A, Jan 2020. https://pushtheboundary.co.uk/blitz-q-a Guardian article by David Conn, Feb 2020 https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/10/oldham-league-two-trouble-rent-north-stand?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other All thing Latics podcast interview with Simon Blitz, Jan 2020. Craig Davies' tweet @Laticsbiffo tweet
  11. I suspect folk would be more likely to if it wasn't such a bone of contention. Our subconscious doesn't want to sully the great man's reputation by associating it at this moment in time.
  12. Matt & Andy discuss the reaction to last week's interview with Barry Owen, including a couple of clips that didn't make the cut last Monday. They chat about what they hope to achieve with the podcast over the summer, as well as discussing some of the things they've seen on Twitter.

  13. There is no covenant. See Blitz Q&A answer from Jan 2020: https://pushtheboundary.co.uk/blitz-q-a
  14. We appreciate your feedback kowenicki. In response to some of your comments above; - We said on more than one occasion during the interview, "It's easy with the benefit of hindsight...." - We believe the Trust could have been & achieved much more, had it been brave enough to take longer term decisions, as far back as 2010 when Blitz left. We respectfully disagree with Barry on this topic and would sight the success of other club's Trusts as tacit proof. Some of which we have interviewed in previous podcast episodes. - Owing to it's nature/magnitude, It would have been a mistake not to have raised the Ched Evans affair with Barry, and we attempted to show balance while challenging his obvious view point, with the alternative of others - at the same time as acknowledging there were two clear camps. Anyone is free to come on the podcast and present their view. We welcome all Latics fans and anyone with connections to the club. Everyone who appears will be treated with respect, but equally we will not duck the big questions.
