Rick Holden (9/15)



  1. We are as usual these days a 20 goal striker short of the playoffs. It is however encouraging that even with the restrictions, financial and ownership, we can at last see the results of having the same 'coach' in charge at the start of the season.
  2. The time has come to treat Covid as what it is i.e. just another virus that makes us unwell and will result in death for some. In other words a respiratory illness like flu and the common cold both of which take the lives of people every year and contributed to the annual death total of 600,000. I'm at risk from flu so I have an annual vaccination which is less effective than the Covid double vaccination but in the past we didn't wear masks we accepted the risk. I've had Covid and both jabs so let me behave towards Covid as I do towards flu. Getting back to 'normal' has to mean stopping all the testing and isolation. Let people take responsibility for themselves. Wear a mask if you want to. Stay locked away if you want to. Have your groceries delivered. Don't go to the pub when it is standing room only. Make choices but be allowed to live your life again. I want to go and watch Oldham again, mainly at home but also away, and I don't ever want to wear a bloody useless mask/face covering again. To be able to make the choice is all I ask.
  3. There has been good news from the review of pilot events in that only 14 Covid infections have been attributed to them so far. We will be there on the 7th if you want to support the players.
  4. Some people are forgetting the style of football we played to get to the Premiership!
  5. I just wish he or his brother would name themselves as coach or manager and stop having a fall guy to hide behind. Come forward name yourself and as we slide down the league realise you are not the answer.
  6. I'll stop watching now just to give us a chance!
  7. A late tackle is I would have thought in the circumstances of two players going for the same ball one made after the other player. They both went for the same ball and the Bolton player got there first. A yellow card.
  8. We are in league 2 because we are not that good and the same can be said of every other team. Salford were not good enough first half and we did them second. Great result with two really good goals. Still in touch just takes a decent run and who knows!
  9. Isn't our noble leader reported as having the ambition to make the playoffs or was that until someone offered him a bag of smarties for Rowe?
  10. I think returning Garrity would give the 'reasonable excuse' necessary to drive anywhere. There is a great amount of drivel talked about when you can or can't drive. Nowhere in the official guidance on uGov does it link essential with driving. Essential is linked with certain activities, so they count as a reasonable excuse, like shopping but nowhere does it say you have to go to the nearest shop. Finally you are only told to stay local when driving somewhere to exercise.
  11. I think it is usually five days from infection to a positive test. Numbers here in Uppermill/Greenfield are static. Any Christmas effect was probably counteracted by the lack of infection coming home from schools.
  12. We must have a better player than Garrity. Tis the midfield that is struggling.
  13. Outrageous that we have to change out of our home kit!
  14. I know we have the mega thread but this is a stand alone issue. It rather looks like we will be stuck playing behind closed doors whereas other teams in our league will be allowed home supporters when we play away. To my mind it is all teams or none and I hope the EFL thinks so too.
