    Everything Oldham Athletic - Frankie Bunn confirmed new manager

    If Palios had taken over in May rather than August, I doubt we would have ended up in the National League. For one thing, we could not have appointed Micky Adams as he was still at Port Vale.

    Squad Lists 2018/19

    You have missed out Waring and Alabi up front, although I doubt either will feature for us.

    Stickied Confirmed Signings

    The players that have moved from NL to EFL so far are mostly the standouts from the division below. I would imagine a lot of these moves have been in the offing for a while.

    Everything Oldham Athletic - Frankie Bunn confirmed new manager

    He was at Prenton Park for the play-off semi-final last month and is mates with James Wallace, but I don't know whether we ever considered signing him. Personally I am glad he is not coming here. We are trying to re-establish ourselves as a league club and it is not the sort of gamble I would...

    Pre season friendly thread

    We beat New Zealand 7-1 once. In January.

    Welcome back Tranmere

    I am quite glad we did not sign Baxter. If he can recapture the form of three or four years ago he will obviously be one of, if not the, best player in the division. But we have taken too many gambles on players with baggage in recent seasons and I would rather the budget went elsewhere.

    League Two confirmed 2018-19

    Going even further back, I think the defection of Clint Hill to Boundary Park also played a part. We were very similar clubs on a gently downward trajectory for most of the noughties, probably the two most closely matched in that division in terms of recent history. The rivalry with Chester...

    Once the Sergio Ramos lawsuits have been filed, I think the date will be confirmed as 11th July.

    League Two confirmed 2018-19

    The club still expect the average visiting support to increase fourfold. Other than Wrexham and Chester, only four teams brought more than 200 fans last season.

    League Two confirmed 2018-19

    Sounds about right. 1.3 million last year and a 50% increase. The Vanarama is such a strange league for the travelling supporter. A glut of teams in the south east and hardly any in the midlands or the major towns and cities in the north. Matches against Notts County and Lincoln seem like...

    I think he is factoring in Jay Spearing, which is the other rumour doing the rounds.

    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2018/2019

    Larnell Cole signs a one year contract with Rovers, giving us another option out wide. He is a very talented player but his attitude was a bit suspect at times last season, so I am not totally convinced. A full pre-season should do him some good. It has to be said, our recruitment so far is...

    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2018/2019

    An excellent player, one of the best in the National League last season. Creates chances as well as scoring goals. I am a bit gutted that we did not go after him, as we need more options out wide.

    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2018/2019

    As I may have mentioned before, Banks was the best midfielder I saw in the National League in our time there and I am really pleased with this signing. He suits our style of football under Mellon and, crucially, brings the best out of Jennings and Norburn. Plenty of suggestions from elsewhere...

    It won't be Salford as Alexander and McNulty hate each other.
