im all for change at boundary pk, but why move to failsworth when there is enough space around the current ground to build an up to date ground arround it, as it is the easiest ground to get to by far. it will keep all the supporters happy, by keeping it local. but the main priority is to get a good football team first, before we get a new ground, as we have gone back 20 years. im glad penney's gone, as he brung in dead wood this season, and ruined our chances of getting out of this division. i hope the board get someone in whos experienced to take this club forward, and climb the leagues once more. KEEP THE FAITH!

why move to failsworth? sounds crazy to me there is enough space around boundary park to build a stadium fitting for any purpose you would ever want how about ground share for one season with stockport /rochdale or may i say it even bury knock down the boundary park and build a new improved ground there in its spiritual home you might ruffle a few feathers of the purist for a year but isnt that better than moving to an area thats oldham (but only just ) with a manchester post code ? it cant be for better access to the motorway network you cant get much better than where you are now just in case your thinking what does a leeds fan know about us and the area etc i lived in oldham for 35 years and now live in heywood (still an OL post code) and although i follow my beloved leeds oldham results are number two on my results check

I moved South many years ago having watched Latics under Jimmy Frizzel and Joe as long term seasonticket holder in he Chaddie End. The one thing I could always guarantee is a) passion from the players and crowd and b) away team glad of coming away with a draw. Having been to a handful of home games in the last 12 months and more away games, this doesn't feel like an Oldham side. Maybe it is confidence - maybe it is too much churn. We need stability now. No more excuses about injuries - many of which are fitness related. I agree a new ground would be good - but so would a rebuild from the bottom up. Who can remember the days when we brought in a few experienced players that lasted 4-5 years but the majority of the team were Oldham grown kids. We are starting to see that now - we need positive change at the club and stop this negative culture - that having been said it isn't easy when the days when losing at home was a one off - now it feels like a draw at fotress Boundary Park is a result !! No more excuses - and it is not just about commercial management - this is about passion and wanting to play for the club - being proud - gets a bit repetative hearing 'this season is consolidation' - I am sure we will stay up but surely we should be disappointed we are only in the play-offs in this league ???

matthews right, could get closer if we tried. new ground is defo needed but not in failsworth.every latics fan knows we need a new ground but its gotta be in oldham, look at the rugby, they moved from watersheddings and the fans dint come back.needs to be closer to home.we aint ever gonna poach fans from our big city rivels so why try? keep the ground in oldham, get oldhamers in there and give'em summert to cheer about.we dont dont expect a winning team(would be nice though!) but we do expect passion,desire and a fighting spirit that yes if we do lose we lose with a fight and that the other team knows they have had a game. KEEP LATICS IN OLDHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Manchester United heartland indeed, you couldn't get closer to Newton Heath if you tried.
