plus the 7 point the reffereing assosiation say we are owed we would be one of the teams to beat


But how many other teams have been in similar situations in their other games? It's impossible to tell, so it's a moot point.

If you can remain Latics Blue when all about you

Are fleeing and turning red or City blue

If you can keep the faith when others doubt you

And make allowances for them ridiculing you

If you can cheer and not be tired by cheering

Or sing, don't give way to silence

Or being doubted don't give way to doubt

Or freeze, don't give way to freezing

And yet don't spend too much, nor chat too wise:

If you can dream - and not make the Prem your master;

If you can think - and not make cupsets your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken

Twisted by forums to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the team you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build it up with worn-out tools:


If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one seat on the board,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never get to elect someone else from t'trust;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your club long after TTA are gone,

And so clear t'pitch when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: 'Game on!'


If you can talk with moaners and keep your virtue,

' Or walk with the execs - nor lose the common touch,

If neither Rocky nor Chaddy end can hurt you,

If all fans count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving game

With ninety minutes worth of having fun;

Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

And - which is more - you'll be a Oldham fan my son!
