  1. Another one who made no great impact here https://fanbanter.co.uk/ex-oxford-pompey-charlton-plymouth-and-bristol-rovers-defender-retires-aged-just-24/?fbclid=IwAR36rSjlUkRadFV5ZSSXGhssZ-PB05tjEbzuCjdFcDWsd8gDxqMPU7y8d3I
  2. So on Saturday they said Latics but today Rochdale
  3. Let’s nail this fake news now. It was Rochdale that got tonked https://www.chorleyfc.com/2020/10/12/youth-setup-recap-oct-12/
  4. Bobby Robson – The Ultimate Patriot Bob Harris deCoubertin Books 2020 Hardback 354pp, £20 Books about Robson aren’t uncommon. There have been at least five previous biographies as well as two autobiographies and a “World Cup Diary”. Bob Harris, the author of this one, has been involved in a minimum of three of them. So the challenges for the publication of yet another have to be whether there is much more to say about Bobby, who passed away in 2009, or whether there is a new way of telling the story of one of the most respected men in European football. There ar
  5. It was a mere 30 years from the bottom to the top
  6. My first match was at home v Millwall on Sept 17 1960. We lost 2-3 and were bottom after that. It feels that the intervening 60 years ( within a few weeks of being exact) have just brought me full circle . Another 2-3 defeat to an “M” club and go bottom My eternal optimism calls me to say that maybe another climb back starts now, 60 years on . Or maybe it’s the medicine talking. http://www.englishfootballleaguetables.co.uk/season/S1960-61/1960-09-17.html
  7. “We’ll win, we’re Oldham” Thoughtful piece on Earl Barrett from the Everton programme. https://www.evertonfc.com/news/1725420/earl-barrett-on-dealing-with-racism-his-everton-years-and-stateside-life
  8. Although he did on Parky. Eric Morecambe did, of course, mention us on a M & W show. Eric: “Three things make me laugh” Ernie “ What are they?” Eric : “ Balloons, Haydock Park, and Oldham Athletic” It wasn’t meant in a nasty sense if I remember correctly but Eric was never cruel...
  9. The A-Z of Weird & Wonderful Football Shirts Richard Johnson Conker Editions, 2020 Paperback, 206pp, £15 Those of us who primarily collect programmes or other printed memorabilia are often challenged by issues of storage. The boxes and shelves that accumulate in lofts, bedrooms and studies can take over the very space that we seek to live or work in. That’s before the issues of complaints from partners. Admiration then for those who pursue the collectables that are football shirts. Wardrobes full, suitcases bursting, and with an ever-increasing frequency in the
  10. Individual shares used to be held by local people/supporters. Could be a way to get people to feel they had a locus in the club without massively diluting any owner’s control. Would have to be an amount that made a difference I think - at least £100 each. And £500 would be even better.
  11. Nothing “pissy”. As currently folk are already boycotting I just wondered whether you were one of them . .
  12. I understand your ire but what do you mean? Presumably you haven’t nor were about to buy a ST . Who or what are you no longer a supporter of?
