  1. Have read the candidate submissions Matt Dean the stand out for me but good luck to all
  2. you seem a tad touchy with my posts andy something I've said
  3. Yep Launching that club statement just as the town hits the main news headlines is near perfect for the club owners Saying that, if someone has racially abused him, they deserve to be investigated by the police and banned if found guilty of the charge
  4. my personal view for what its worth is thar recusant nine / Rajah Miah content isnt suitable for a football forum its about alleged Asian Cartels, GMP failings, corrupt councillors, grooming gangs in the town and investigation findings being with help not read anything he has said about football
  5. Good timing particularly with the car of the Oldham Council leader being firebombed
  6. "your first line reads like you saw him or heard him saying that" I was there but to be brutally honest I didn't hear him utter those words "I'm just going to video what in my opinion is a troublesome fan" I just joined the dots up
  7. He's gone into the stands to video, in his opinion a 'troublesome' fan Made me wonder that 'Mo n ALi' think that there is just a handful of disgruntled fans with their management of the club Haven't they noticed the 'missing thousands' of supporters not going anymore and season ticket sales falling off a cliff
  8. I have the same dilemma Tried not to moan about it but whilst £45 for an Adult Shirt seems decent the £40 for a Kids Shirt looks pricey The promotional video is very good and what looks a few half decent signings and just maybe KC has the will to be his own man Really do not like how AL and the Board have messed us up Just wanna come Home and support my club
  9. Best looking kit we have had for a long time Like the badge to be honest but would have preferred it embroidered otherwise a big thumps up
  10. Can you confirm that Philippa from the Trust gave the club accounts a once over before their release

  12. 2011 That is likely to include a hotel, conference facilities and a number of retail outlets, although planning has not yet begun.

He said: “It’s always an inspiring sight when all the talking and planning stops and you start to see the first physical signs of a project like this taking shape. “This is an absolutely vital regeneration scheme. “It forms part of what I often refer to as the Oldham ‘to do list’ because the benefits aren’t just for the club and its supporters, but for the whole borough. “Last season’s FA Cup run once again showed how Oldham Athletic can put this town on the national map in a way that nothing else quite can – and these new facilities will be a huge boost to the community, visitors and the economy.
  13. New stand is taking shape at Oldham Athletic's home turf The first steel girders have been placed at Oldham Athletic's new North Stand By Ruhubia Akbor 11:15, 10 APR 2014 UPDATED10:59, 14 APR 2014 The regeneration of Oldham Athletic’s home ground is beginning to take shape as the first steel girders appear. The skeleton of Boundary Park’s new North Stand in Oldham can now be seen towering above the site of the former Boundary Stand. Once complete it will boast seating for almost 2,500 fans, a new supporters’ bar, a 500-seat conference facility, offices, health and fitness suite and a coffee shop. Council leader Jim McMahon was taken on a tour of the site by Latics chief executive Neil Joy and chairman Simon Corney. He said: “It’s always an inspiring sight when all the talking and planning stops and you start to see the first physical signs of a project like this taking shape. “This is an absolutely vital regeneration scheme. “It forms part of what I often refer to as the Oldham ‘to do list’ because the benefits aren’t just for the club and its supporters, but for the whole borough. “Last season’s FA Cup run once again showed how Oldham Athletic can put this town on the national map in a way that nothing else quite can – and these new facilities will be a huge boost to the community, visitors and the economy. “It’s been a hard road to get to this point but a better stadium will give the club a facility it can be proud of and one that can start generating vital new off-the-field revenue that currently it simply cannot hope to attract.” Work on the council-backed scheme is being carried out by local contractor Holroy Developments after the plans were approved last year. Mr Joy added: “We were delighted to show Jim around and update him on the latest plans. “The council’s support has been vital in getting us to where we are today and the sight of the first steelwork has created a real buzz of excitement amongst the fans. “Everyone is excited about what this development can do for the future of the club.”
  14. Oldham Athletic celebrating after stadium plan backed unanimously by town hall Latics fans are celebrating after a multi-million pound stadium plan won the backing of the town hall. By Ruhubia Akbor 19:30, 10 APR 2013 UPDATED07:36, 11 APR 2013 Latics fans are celebrating after a multi-million pound stadium plan won the backing of the town hall. Politicians gave the ambitious bid to create a new North Stand at Boundary Park the go-ahead last night, taking just 10 minutes to make a unanimous decision over the planning application. The plans for a three-storey structure to seat just under 2,500 fans, forms part of the first phase of development hoping to rejuvenate the crumbling 12,500-capacity stadium. It will be built on the site of the former Lookers Stand - which was torn down in 2008. The new stand will boast a 500-seat conference facility, 11 executive boxes and a director’s box, new supporters bar, a health and fitness suite, offices and a coffee shop. A 286-space car park, with 26 disabled spaces, was also be given the green light. Club chairman Simon Corney said he was ‘delighted’ to reach this stage with the plans, with the support of the council. He said: “We’ve been talking about this for nearly seven years – the fans will see it as very positive news. “It will be nice to get a four sided stadium once again. There’s still a long way to go, now we’ve got permission. It’s a long hard process but we ask people to remain patient and understanding. We still have a couple of hurdles, particularly financially, which we will hopefully overcome. The application forms part of a £5.7m deal struck with Oldham council in 2011 to secure the club’s future in the town after its failed bid to relocate to Failsworth. "A previous planning application for a similar development was given outline approval in May 2008 but this new vision is of a much smaller scale. "Only one letter of objection was received by a nearby resident expressing concerns about noise disturbances but the plans received overwhelming support from the public.More than 600 emails and letters supporting the plans were received by the council many citing the benefits for the club and the town. "Work is expected to start on the site in the summer to be ready for the start of the 2014/15 season. Lifelong fan and season ticket holder John Cooper, 64, described the decision as an ‘important point in Latics’ history’. He said: “Without this development this club would have died. This stand breathes new life into the club.” ******************************************************************************************************************
  15. Well to be fair PeteG, I cant really change bits in an article that's been in the public domain for years
  16. Manchester Evening News By Mike Keegan 12:14, 28 JUL 2011 Oldham Athletic are set to stay at Boundary Park, we can reveal. It is understood council bosses want to give the club £5.7m to redevelop the crumbling 107-year-old ground – which would end plans to move elsewhere. The cash injection will be used to build a new North Stand, we understand. The plans are expected to be rubber-stamped at a meeting of town hall bosses on Monday. Oldham council leader Jim McMahon said: "We don’t want the club to leave the town on our watch. "This mess has been going on for 10 years. It’s now down to Oldham Athletic to make this a success. "We wanted to keep the club in the town and we have done that." The League One club had hoped to sell up and switch to a brand new 12,000-capacity stadium which was to be built in Failsworth. They spent around £5m acquiring land close to Broadway in preparation for the move. But those plans dramatically collapsed in February when the Charity Commission ruled a stadium could not be built on the site thanks to a covenant dating back to the First World War. As a result Latics were left facing financial ruin as investors in the project pulled the plug. Other sites in the town have since been looked at for a new base. And on Monday proposals for the council to buy the Lancaster Club, part of the land, from Latics will go before a cabinet meeting. It is thought any funds raised would go towards the Latics redevelopment with the Lancaster Club possibly being turned into a leisure complex. The deal, which a council source said totalled £5.7m, includes funds from the sale of the Lancaster Club, a three-year loan and a separate land sale. Nobody at Oldham Athletic wished to comment although a club source said the agreement was verbal and that some scepticism remained. It is thought the deal includes a clause which stipulates that it will only go ahead if the money is used to build a new facility which will replace the bulldozed Broadway stand. That is likely to include a hotel, conference facilities and a number of retail outlets, although planning has not yet begun. Councillor McMahon added: "We have been working hard since regarding control of Oldham Council to resolve the long running saga of Oldham Athletic. ******************************************************************************************************************************************************* Easy to forget how long this has been dragging on for
