Born 25/05/85

 

Closest game was 11/05/85 - Carlisle 2-5 Oldham

 

I went to that game. Was the last game of the season and the day of the Bradford fire. Mickey Quinn had set himself a target of "over 20 goals for the season" and went to Brunton Park on 18, only to hit a last day hatrick and achieve his target. Roger Palmer scored the other 2. I will never forget that day for as long as I don't get Alzheimers.

Mine is a mystery.

 

I was born on Saturday 7th December 1968 (I know you'd never believe I was that old to look at me).

 

Week before I was born, we lost 4 - 1 away at Reading (Jim Bowie scored the goal)

 

The week after I was born, we lost 2 - 0 away at Watford

 

But I don't to this day know why we didn't play on my Birthday. My Dad was too drunk to remember why we didn't play.

 

Anyone any ideas?

Nearest was Rochdale at Home October 14th 2-2 draw with Jimmy Frizz scoring twice

 

Tuesday 8th February 1977 the day I was born, two games closest to the day of my birth sum up my time supporting Latics perfectly......

 

5/2/77 Latics 4 Bristol Rovers 0

12/2/77 Cardiff 3 Oldham 1

Maybe a postponed game due to the weather ?
