  1. Wouldn’t surprise me if Bournemouth put a bid in for Bahambula, he’s awesome.Anyone know how longs on his contract?
  2. Agreed and it’s a common trend of teams who reach the summit of English football without the funds to sustain it. I was reading the Bradford message board and there was hints on their of former glories. If we ever progress up the leagues we would eventually have to face the consequences.
  3. I’ve supported Latics long enough to know not to expect anything. I thought we’d beat Harrogate on Saturday and was very hopeful but that my point, your expectations were incorrect. I hear long term City fans arguing with ‘new money’ supporters about a slight dip In form. Saturdays performance was very confusing for me. We were totally out played in every department and I’ve never watched a Latics team who can be so good and so bad.
  4. This post is not intended to offend so please don’t take it the wrong way, but I believe that the position of our club in the very early years of your support has a big impact on how you see things now. I first started watching Latics in the early 70’s, they had recently been promoted from the old 4th division and things were on up. We got promoted to the 2nd division soon afterwards but progress thereafter was slow. We’ve been to the premiership, which was more than I could have ever dreamed, but are now back down to where we were shortly before my first match. We have gone full cir
  5. That’s 11 wins from 21 now in all competitions. I know a few of those were in ‘the Mickey Mouse ‘ and only over a relatively short period, but overall that’s pretty good. Have any of our previous managers managed over 50% wins?
  6. Thats 6 wins in the last 10 games now in all competitions. We are doing ok now, so let’s get behind them whatever your opinion of what’s going on behind the scenes.
  7. Worst company I have ever had to deal with. Sill haven’t been able to get free season access for home matches. I sent numerous emails to Latics and IFollow and am being passed from Pillar to post each saying that I need to contact the other. Every time you email you have to wait 2 days for a response and they’ve now stopped bothering to respond. My emails to IFollow have now started bouncing back. Not even had a response to my request for a refund for the Southend game so now refusing to purchase any more matches out of principle. I can still watch the home matches by breaking Corvid rule
  8. I would say generally no, but they might have sent IFollow the same email address for both season tickets and it might work. If if was you I’d email supporter services as it’s a valid question to ask. Failing that, you might need to break COVID rules.
  9. £49 Down the pan then but it did work with videos through the app so will give it a go before I test Argos’s refund policy.
  10. I’ve had a look this morning. It now says the match will be available 1 hour before kick off, so recon it’s all now set up and ready
  11. I’ve just bought a lightening to HDMI connector so I can connect my IPad to my TV HDMI lead so that I can watch it from my iPad on the big screen. I got the genuine Apple one at £49 from Argos. A bit expensive but didn’t want to risk the cheaper ones at around £17 you can get online. Works fine with videos but not tried it yet for a live match. Will give it a go tomorrow night. If it works it will give me two options to watch either through my laptop or iPad/ iPhone just in case one or other experiences difficulties. Will let you know
  12. I’ve got an access code which enables free access to every EFL match, videos, interviews etc no matter which team you support and has no limit on the number of simultaneous users! Guess you won’t be needing it then?
  13. Apologise if this topic has been cover before, but I’m interested to know how others watch IFollow matches and what good advice is out there to enhance the experience. I access IFollow through the web site on my laptop and watch on my TV by connecting using an HDMI cable. This has been fine up until the Southend game when the laptop couldn’t connect so I downloaded the app on my iPad which worked ok but 3 of us huddled around the laptop wasn’t ideal. I’ve therefore been looking at ways of connecting my iPad to the TV in case it happens again. What do you do and what advice have you got fo
  14. A very honest post and one which I totally agree with. I liked Fane’ if only for the little chuckles we had every time we purposely mispronounced his name
  15. Agreed, and I suppose i’m Just being thankful for small mercies but i’ll take what’s presently on offer. It’s the hope that kills you!
  16. I’ve seen comments from people on here saying that they’d settle for a draw on Saturday, and I understand why; it’s the fear factor, the fear of losing or undoing what we have recently achieved. But in truth a draw would do nothing for our play off aspirations and would likely put us further behind Exeter in 7th place. The players need to be bold Saturday and go for the win. Nothing less than 3 points will do. This mini run has brought back memories from way back, checking the league table every few minutes, looking who’s got to play who. I know it could all be over Saturday but please try an
  17. Apart from an impressive win away at a premier league side and an admirable defeat against a higher division side in the FA cup, that’s 16 points from 8 games and automatic promotion form in the league under Wild. That’s Solskjaer proportions at Man U. GIVE HIM THE JOB. Could we, just could we, make a late push for the play offs? I know!! getting giddy!! Night everyone x
  18. Morecambe played a very good pressing game tonight, scored there goals at just the right time and generally made life very difficult for us. I personally didn’t see much evidence of over playing, if anything, we were hitting hopeful cross field balls or crosses from far to deep with little or no support to our forwards. As for the selection, without the injured Lang, I thought it was ok. Maouche had a poor game on Saturday and looked disinterested for much of that game and when Lang went off injured, we had no attacking options on the bench. PS knew that we were in for a hard night so quite ri
  19. It’s happening, just been confirmed on Granada reports that the league have decided that scholes part ownership of Salford is not a conflict of interest to him becoming Oldham manager. Likely to be announced over the weekend.
  20. Yes great bloke and will be sadly missed. I remember him telling me that he faced Garfield Sobers who was the overseas pro whilst playing for Crompton. He hit two 4’s from his first two balls, only for his middle stump to be sent cartwheeling with the 3rd ball.
