Yes, I went to the Wikipedia page to see if it mentioned it  😀. I had it in my head he'd become a copper after retiring..   Thanks PeteG - nice to know someone else remembers it!

Yes, it was a nice warm day and Mike was brilliant when he came on. Last game of the season?

The Leeds supporters were a angry hateful mob before the game, if we had held on and beat them it would have been carnage afterwards. Mind you the 1st leg in Leeds was the only time at a football game

Mike Cecere was going out with Rita Fairclough's foster child at the time, she used to stand in the Main Stand Paddock. 

 

A great hat trick that day v Blackburn, never really did anything else

 

And chuck some chairs at a few peope...allegedly

Yes he did it was handed in by a an honest and upright fan.. 

My then sister in law was as honest as the day is long; if she had grabbed it, she would have wore it to bed that night and probably would have been far from upright...

A great hat trick that day v Blackburn, never really did anything else other than score v Leeds in that play off semi-final which nearly sparked the biggest riot BP had ever seen - sadly Keith Edwards equalised and the rest is history  

 

I seem to remember he played well in the play off home game against Leeds.

Fucking hell, that is a full on character assassination. 

 

With no references to back up the statements it should definitely be deleted.

He made strong runs ....... that about sums him up but he had a couple of really good games and backed them up with some stinkers where he spent most of his time falling over from innocuous challenges.

I did allude to the fact he scored in that game BP, nearly took us to the Play off final but for that bloody Keith Edwards

Let's be honest...he was pretty shite! 52 appearances and 8 goals...3 of which came 45 mins  v Rovers!! Pretty sure he left for Huddersfield shortly after and was just as bad there. Think Big Joe knew he was sub standard.

 

Remember his goal though against Leeds in the play off semi...and the Edwards equaliser about 30 seconds after! That certainly ranked up there as one of the most gut wrenching feelings as a Latics supporter over 40 years, with the Hughes equaliser in the last minute at Wembley, and failing to win at Northampton a couple of years ago....or maybe that was just pure anger rather than disappointment!

 

Anyway those were the days eh! Latics challenging for promotion to the top division, days we will never see again 😔

I can probably name more of this lot than our current squad - what a blast from the past. Cheers

 

When is the last time we had a squad photo? when Corney was still here?

For reasons that escape me he was often referred to as Mike 'the hamster' Cecere in OASIS newsletters of the day.  Any ideas?

Arched his back a lot and ran himself in circles.

 

Actually, he did arch his back quite often. Usually to duck under the ball. Someone must have pushed him when he scored with the header in the play off semi.

He actually out battled  Neil Aspin to send a perfect header passed Mervyn Day..

Can you ask him if he knows anyone who wants to buy OAFC? 

He's always come across as a very sensible chap - so doubt he'd mix in that sort of company!

He always had a blinder against us. Very good goalkeeper. Lost his early promise, but i thought he was brilliant for Leeds.
