  1. I've had a funny positive feeling about Lancs this year, the likes of Mahmood, Davies, Bohannon, Jones and Wood should be hitting their prime years, and with my interest in football at an all time low, I'm really enjoying the live coverage of the opening County Champ game against Sussex on youtube. Sussex 301 (Haines 155, Bailey 4/48) Lancs 339/5 (Vilas 158*, Robinson 2/51) https://live.nvplay.com/ecb/#m8d638124-cef5-42f0-9f04-508beb99ec55
  2. Little known that Channel 4's Italian sister channel had an English football magazine show in the same vein... ... ...
  3. Lincoln away, 2016 (although they ended up getting to the quarter finals and are now above us, so not your typical non league side.)
  4. This lad looks pretty decent. A bit slight, and it's only friendlies, but a goal in each pre-season game is positive. Can't knock having the knack of goalscoring. Did a fair bit of Borthwick-Jackson's defending for him against Lincoln as well, as he was playing down the left.
  5. Here's what you could have won? These sketches from OAFC's graphics desiner's twitter account show a blue Ajax kit was under some kind of consideration at one point, as well as a kit combining the red pinstripes of the Prem kit with the hooped kit from a couple of years after it. I imagine they are from the fan consultation they had, before it was ultimately decided to have a solid blue and a red and white stripes.
  6. Hmmm, how about... "The shirt is a classic Oldham design, being blue with white trim, which has been the standard Latics look since 1972. The gradient, changing from lighter blue to a darker shade, represents the subtly different shades of blue worn over the years. There is also the slightest touch of tangerine, which represents the six year spell that the club wore that colour at home." With stripes as the away, and if a blue and white 1910-1966 look is to come in the special cup kit, that's the four main kit designs we've had represented in our range next season.
  7. Mood here is down, fair enough, but I think this kit is really nice! Gorgeous bit of detail.
  8. https://www.oldhamathletic.co.uk/news/2020/july/04072020-hummel-20-21-home-shirt/ Really smart imo. (on second thought, maybe a few too many colours going on. Royal blue, navy blue, white, orange, red.) As it says on the official site, a special third commemorative kit is also being made, which will be worn at home in cup games. The classic blue and white?

  10. I don't think it is, but I've just imagined how a kit might look in the old blue/white style, but with navy blue instead of white. Hmm.
  11. Looks like the blue kit will be in the recently seen gradient style, fading from royal blue at the top of the shirt, to navy blue at the bottom. I expect it will have white shorts/socks with it, which could be swapped with the striped kit's navy blue shorts/socks.
  12. Festus Arthur (ex-youth) has signed for Hull City from Stockport for an undisclosed fee.
  13. Watch the 1990 FA Cup Semi vs Man Utd, and the replay, as well as the League Cup final against Nottm Forest, in full here: https://footballia.net/teams/oldham-athletic-afc There are also 17,098 other historical games to delve into on this monster site.
  14. It's been determined that by playing for Barrow against Latics as a trialist in the Lancashire Senior Cup, Chris Taylor is ineligible to play for anyone else until the next transfer window... ouch.
  15. I think Morais plays in the middle of the park some of the time now he's slower. I think.
  16. Like I've been saying, if he was that desperate to play for Bolton, he'd have just waited it out. There's no way the regime agree to such a ridiculous clause, they know how bad it'd look.
  17. Cadamarteri is manager, but Murray will be interfering and telling him certain players have to, or cannot play from behind the scenes. It's to help youth players prepare for what it will be like in the first team.
  18. Tom Hamer... It's easy to forget how young he is. Yes a good chunk of then have come at a lower level, but he's played twice as many games as Tarky had at the same age. Thinking about it, he shouldn't be wasted on the bench too much. Could easily be his last season with us.
  19. Yep, it's a quandary that was inevitable once we signed Mills. Sign of a good player that can keep forcing himself into the first team again and again, even as a teenager. My first guess is that they'll often play together on the right flank in away games, and scrap over who gets to start in home games.
  20. Aye, it's a Bolton player of 8 and a half year, talking to a Bolton journalist about the circumstances of him leaving Bolton. He's an uncomplicated lad is Wheats, if he didn't want to sign for us, he wouldn't have. Edit: At the risk of becoming a full on fanboy, I can't help but note we continually conceded early in pre-season, and then again tonight. Saturday we were alright, and one David Wheater was playing. Please don't get injured/suspended/other.
  21. Not seen as a backup player, evidently. 8 changes were made, and they were all also missing from the bench, with youth teamers preferred as substitute options.
  22. Perfect use of this comp. 19-year-old homegrown captain. Game time for players who won't be getting much. 3 points in a potential money earning tournament. One more win from the remaining two games should see us through. Iacovitti getting a game is probably bad news for him, funnily. I expect, barring any superb performances this evening, the plan was for nearly everyone who played tonight to miss out on Saturday,. Except Ash Smith-Brown, who LB will have wanted to see in action, and probs Sylla. I think Mills will revert to right back as we hopefully go more attacking against Crew
