  1. Personally I wouldn't be confident that home fans will be allowed at all 46 league games next season. Nevermind away fans. Attendance may be subject to conditions like having a negative test or proof of vaccination. I doubt away ends will have their pre-pandemic capacity either.
  2. Referee is now Alan Young, who was the ref v Tranmere (H) where there was a bit of a kerfuffle after the match and Peter Clarke called Jombati a Blert. https://www.oldhamathletic.co.uk/news/2021/april/23042021-match-preview-grimsby-town/ Young has refereed Oldham 4 times in his career and brandished 23 yellow cards (4, 6, 7, 8 latest first).
  3. The same could (unfortunately) be said about: Forest Green Salford Morecambe Crawley Stevenage Barrow etc.
  4. We need to replace most of the loanees by: Their permanent signing, only one I can see that happening with is Grant, Lawlor might be available too, but I don't know what his contract situation is. Another signing- think it will be hard to replace McCalmont and Clarke with a permanent signing. The rest will be relatively easy. Another loan - doubt we will be able to get McCalmont and Clarke back, but similar players will be available. Playing 3-5-2, or more accurately 3-4-2-1, can mean you don't need a ball winning midfielder every game.
  5. Better known to Oldham fans for sending off Moimbe for pulling Tom Eaves' hair.
  6. Looks as though fans may be required to demonstrate evidence of: Vaccination or A Negative Test (presumably within 24 / 48 hours) or The presence of antibodies against COVID-19 To be able to watch games in person next season. See https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56668965
  7. AL / Corney / Chris Moore is quite partial to a red card in Oldham games, think its 5 in his last 6 going back to 2017/18. The exception was Cheltenham v Oldham a couple of seasons ago, and he sent a Cheltenham player off in the earlier game at BP.
  8. Next season as it’s after the 4th Thursday in March. See https://www.efl.com/-more/governance/efl-rules--regulations/section-3---the-league/ section 12.
  9. Darren Drysdale is due to make his comeback this weekend. His allocated game: Leyton Orient v Latics
  10. The Wankdorf stadium is so named because it is in the Wankdorf area of Bern, so very similar origins to our own Boundary Park. Graz’s stadium used to be named after Arnie because he’s from there. Then after some controversy involving a death row prisoner, when he was Governor of California, there was some debate in Graz about renaming stuff named after him, including the football stadium. Arnie ended the debate himself by refusing Sturm Graz the right to use his name.
  11. I had a look at our position in Feb 2019, just before Scholes took over, we were 9 points off the playoffs with a game in hand. So a relatively comparable position to our current one. In 2019, with 3 games to go, we controlled our own destiny to make the playoffs (if we’d have won the last 3 games we were in, no matter what anyone else did). That is the least I’d expect from us in this division, but I don’t think many have classed that as a playoff push. While a lot of clubs in this division are well run and achieving a good level compared to their historical status, we aren’t. Bas
  12. I think they are using most of the money to fund a scoreboard, probably one of those video ones.
  13. Saved me the bother Monty. Hilssner doesn't have Barnes physiology, he isn't exactly sprint based either.
  14. Because the official Sky Bet League Account on Twitter posted a picture of De La Paz in reference to us not having a home clean sheet this season.
