Probably winning at Ipswich in the game that secured promotion.

 

All Time Greatest Player?

Paul Warne, simply for the effort he puts in.

Top, maybe 2nd.

 

Biggest Rivals (in your eyes)?

Nobody really, when I started out Blackburn and Bolton, buts thats long gone, the other 23 in the division I suppose.

 

And Finally, You became a millionaire, Oldham were available to purchase, what would you do to make our club Secure for the future?

Follow the example set by TTA.

 

 

Very straightforward, and a pleasure to have you on board.

How Long Supporting the Tics?

Since I was about 6... so about 17 years.

 

Favourite Game (not the obvious one!)?

Latics 5-0 Forest

I like to think that if you pick your best game from more than a year ago there is something wrong with the team... this one stands out from this season (I didn't go to Hudds away!)

 

All Time Greatest Player?

Andy Ritchie

As a kid growing up I played as a striker and so as an Oldham fan Stitch was the one who stood out!

 

Favourite Current Member?

Chris Porter

He really does have somthing which could take him a lot further than we can hope to go in the next 5 years. His first touch and aerial ability are second to non in this league, and from what I have seen most of the Championship too. With the right guidance and coaching I expect he could comfortably play Premiership football.

 

Where will we finish?

Top.

If you don't think that looking at the league from 2nd at New Year then you have something wrong with you! It will not be easy and we won't win it without our troubles, but if we keep the players we have, get Gregan and a striker in then we can do it.

 

Biggest Rivals (in your eyes)?

Scunny, Blackpool and Forest this year.

Assuming like us Sucnny keep the squad together and that Forest spend a million or two I think it will be two from three (with Latics) and that Blackpool could mount a late push.

 

And Finally, You became a millionaire, Oldham were available to purchase, what would you do to make our club Secure for the future?

Develop the youth system further, make it the best in the business outside the premiership and attractive to youngsters from allover the North. Afterall kids are the future - don't you know Wink

 

Finally, from someone who ran a forum for a while, when new people post a thread about anything at all make sure you and the Mods reply and try and get people chatting on it... if you get twenty of the JKL regulars talking to eachother and no one else then people will lose interest. But if you get a new person starting a thread and the regulars debating with them you get a better atmoshphere really quickly! and they will come back knowing that people will talk to them!!

 

And thanks - another month of just JKL and I'd have hunted down and stabbed BLADE LAD in the face!

 

Ack

 

 

Cheers Ack, I wouldnt bother with Blade, he wouldnt know what to do if you swore at him!

Hello Steve, Hope you enjoy yourself on this side?

 

Name?

Steve (Stevie_J)

 

Occupation?

Just finished a PGCE (well, very nearly). In between things at the moment.

 

Location?

Galashiels, Scottish Borders.

 

How Long Supporting the Tics?

About 21 years, since I was about 5 years old.

 

Favourite Game (not the obvious one!)?

Lots from the glory days under Joe Royle's management. The favourite from recent years is last week's 5-0 win over Notts Forest.

 

All Time Greatest Player?

For Latics, Andy Ritchie. Outside of Latics, George Best or Paul Scholes.

 

Favourite Current Member?

Richie Wellens for his ability and cheeky little :censored: mentality and Paul Warne for his boundless running and energy; everyone loves a grafter.

 

Where will we finish?

In the top three.

 

Biggest Rivals (in your eyes)?

None, really. We don't have any genuine rivals these days, just lighthearted rivalries with Blackpool and the Tramps.

 

And Finally, You became a millionaire, Oldham were available to purchase, what would you do to make our club Secure for the future?

Invest in youth - the children are our future. And seek advice from someone more able to say.

Buy us some land, gain Academy status and get a load of pitches and state of the art facilities sorted so our future talent is some of the best around.

And Finally, You became a millionaire, Oldham were available to purchase, what would you do to make our club Secure for the future?

Free buses from distant towns, major concerts and events, a 'We name the price' policy regarding player sales and a decent management team in the catering department (Running out of pies and burgers before kick off the last 3 games is shocking business!)

 

Oh god dont get me started on the bloody pies, nice to have you on board pal!

Occupation? Systems Developer

 

Location? Withington, south of Manchester

 

How Long Supporting the Tics? Been going to games since around 8 years ago.

 

Favourite Game (not the obvious one!)? Tricky one that! I'll go for an odd one - Plymouth 4-1 at home in '04. We were relegation threatened, they were champions, but we dished out a tonking in a game that had everything.

 

All Time Greatest Player? Since I started watching, David Eyres.

 

Favourite Current Member? Either Pogs or Stam.

 

Where will we finish? 2nd.

 

Biggest Rivals (in your eyes)? Not really on the same level as us unfortunately, but one of Man U or Wigan.

 

And Finally, You became a millionaire, Oldham were available to purchase, what would you do to make our club Secure for the future? Let TTA keep Latics, then buy United and City, moved them to the Far East and sell them. I feel this would be the most effective way of making Latics great again.

:wink:

 

 

I like your thinking!

well in the past i did spend alot of cash on latics buying goalposts ,team kits ,coach,s to away games etc , but if i do get more money again i would rebuild the chaddy end like it was in 1970,s woodern blanks but i would put central heating into to the stand and rebuild the main stand ,and with the rest of the money get someone to burn down cold traffford and the fans in it too :twisted:
