  1. Everyone is missing the really big issue which is that we haven’t scored at BP in the three matches since they were switched back on.
  2. I’m going for 442 diamond:- Lawlor Adams Diarra Clarke Badan Hilßner Bahamboula McCalmont DKD Mcaleny Dearnley (or Taz/ Barnes)
  3. Apparently it is flooded so can’t understand why it wasn’t called off earlier. Now official. https://www.oldhamathletic.co.uk/news/2021/february/06022021-scunthorpe-a-postponed/
  4. Don’t feed the sealion! Sealioning (also spelled sea-lioning and sea lioning) is a type of trolling or harassment that consists of pursuing people with persistent requests for evidence or repeated questions, while maintaining a pretense of civility and sincerity. It may take the form of "incessant, bad-faith invitations to engage in debate".
  5. To be fair, I think most of what he was going to say was already rumour and quickly became common knowledge. Plus, the shit show that has followed the TTA/ Corney regime has reset the new normal at OAFC and so didn’t really surprise many.
  6. In this case, the sealion is right. Shez was all in on Connor Ripley and threw a strop when he was told his keepers were BPF and Placide. He said that the Leeds lad was no good and sent him back. Turns out his assessment was wrong and our history could have been very different had he played Peacock-Farrell from the outset. It is clear there was massive interference with the squad from the minute that the Legsamams were at the Club. I can’t blame Shez for being pissed off with that but his attitude in those few weeks was a major contributor in us getting relegated. Wellens sealed the deal after January with his myriad of excuses while Corney and the Lemmys share significant blame too, particularly for getting rid of Peter Clarke.
  7. I agree that he should see out the season. It depends whether Latics are pushing him to leave now though to bring in a bit of cash before he becomes a free agent in the summer and I really don’t know what the truth is here.
  8. If we classed McAleny as a goal scoring winger, same as Johnny Smith, should the latter become available, who would you prefer in the team? I think a few teams will be juggling their loan players due to the restrictions and personally, I’d much rather have Smith back at Latics if Swindon sent him back to Bristol City. As others have said, McAleny only signed for us to further his career elsewhere and I really don’t fault him for that. He owes us nothing so good luck to the lad although I do think he can do better than Bradford.
  9. For those buying the match on iFollow, I would hold off until the game is confirmed as going ahead. Fair snow covering already and it is still coming down heavily.
  10. Jackson Irvine has been training with us apparently. He would be a top signing.
