No wonder Yeovil wanted to keep him, Slade factor noticed from the clip (cheers Diego) that Russell Slade was there. He must be a fan.


Lets hope he is twice the player that Rocky was - he must be a definate replacement for him.

The Oldham Advertiser has the story:


Kalala checks in


CONGOLESE midfielder JP Kalala is the latest addition to Oldham Athletic's squad after signing a two-year deal on Thursday morning.


The 25-year-old international - who goes by the full name of Jean-Paul Kamudimba Kalala - joined on a free transfer from Yeovil Town after a season at Huish Park which saw him figure in the League One play-off final as the Glovers went down to Blackpool.


Kalala began his career in English football under Yeovil boss Russell Slade when he was in charge of Grimsby Town, scoring the winning goal as the Mariners dumped Tottenham Hotspur out of the Carling Cup in September 2005.


He is the fifth signing of the close season for Athletic following Mark Crossley, John Thompson, Craig Davies and Lee Hughes - subject to his parole hearing - while Latics boss John Sheridan is awaiting to hear whether Stefan Stam, Richie Wellens and Chris Porter will sign the new deals offered to them.


If not, former Latic Mark Allott may be on his way back to Boundary Park from Chesterfield provided a fee can be agreed, while a left-back is also on Sheridan's shopping list.

So don't rule out Allott just yet!

Another great signing but does anyone know, when Kalala played and scored the winning goal for Grimsby against Spurs I'm sure he wasn't a defensive midfielder I thought he was a winger or attacking midfielder??? :huh:


Here's a fan's match report on that game.
