  1. Latics have made a number of visits to the County Ground over the years, so I thought this may be of interest. An article about Swindon’s link to the famous Italian architect Nervi, who also built Fiorentina’s stadium and the Stadio Flaminio in Rome: https://calcioengland.wordpress.com/2019/03/22/florence-rome-swindon-how-the-grand-master-of-italian-stadium-design-nearly-made-his-mark-in-england/
  2. Giorgio Chiellini worth a shout - just knocked out his MBA, complete with a thesis on the business model of Juventus Football Club.
  3. Not to be condoned, but if anyone fancies hedging their bets, tickets have just gone on sale for the home end...
  4. There's a difference between gross wages paid to the player and full employer costs (which include additional things like National Insurance and Pension contributions). In my line of work its typically assumed that the latter items add about 20% to the narrow wage cost. So it may be that the 1.3m and 1.7m are both right, give or take...
  5. A few times - always been impressed. Manchester based, I think
  6. May be of interest to a few on this thread; Classicfootballshirts.co.uk are knocking out Frankfurt shirts at £12.99... https://www.classicfootballshirts.co.uk/banners/frankfurt-clearance.html
  7. ...valid point, but deprivation is more than just income - it's a whole basket of stuff including health, education and crime.
  8. http://www.skysports.com/football/news/18939/10020841/swindon-v-oxford-crowd-trouble-sees-five-arrest-by-thames-valley-police I'm not exactly sure how a pi$$ed up Oldhamer in a nearby town warrants being added to the arrest totaliser. Was it anyone on here? ;-)
  9. Slightly left field request; I'm after a link to the video of the short press conference that Barry Owen gave at the height of the Ched Evans siege on BP in January. The one where he seemed to be wearing a Christmas sweater, appeared edgy and signed off with the classic line "thank you gentleman..........and ladies" I'm running some training at work on presenting and wanted to contrast a good and bad example of public speaking. I'll let you speculate as to which category this Baz classic falls into The YouTube link I had is sadly now broken; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qc3S9q5yaTs&
  10. Maybe of interest to anyone who was left disappointed by Father Christmas' offering this year... Current season home and away adult shirts available for £14.99 on SD.com; you have to pay £3.99 delivery but can get 20% off today (New Years Day) using the code TAKE20. i.e. long sleeved home shirt delivered to your door for £16.
  11. £75 for Liverpool this season, through their basic hospitality ticket - in laws are scousers...

  13. Great performance to a man out there today - with one exception. I am genuinely surprised by support for Harkins in here; granted it was his first game - and a cameo chasing the game against a Prem team, but still... Clearly overweight, yet easily muscled off the ball, too many flicks and seemingly unable to get the ball under control. Maybe fitness related but just looked too immobile for my liking. I would love to be proven wrong, but the signs didn't look great to me!
  14. Paddypower offering odds for L. Barnard as a Latics scorer in today's match... http://www.paddypower.com/football/football-matches/english-league-1-matches/Coventry-v-Oldham-6282462.html#ev_6282462_mkt_grp_323852 Couldn't see anything on fishal or here about Barnard - have I missed something?
  15. Anyone who thinks we would get £1m+ for Tarky needs a reality check. A very good L1 defender, but everyone knows we're skint - and unfortunately our track record for selling off talent quickly and cheaply will count against us here. Rightly or wrongly, I can't see us turning down a bid of £600-800k should such a bid materialise.
