On the table it is quite interesting, I think Oldham are team in Football League who have been in same league for longest period. they must be near 20 years in League 1

Makes me feel old. I still remember them getting into the Premier League!

And Frank Bunn's 6 goals in one game in the cup against a lower league team.... Scarborough at a guess!

Always remember Oldham as the team who ended our title challenge in the first season of the prem. Boundary park in the winter months was a hard place to watch football.

I used to design the Oldham match programme when they were in the Premier League. #funfact

Every single time I went there, I caught a cold. Even for Ian Olney's testimonial in August.

A goal for Robinson today. I think that's 7 for the season. shame we didn't persist with him instead of giving Gabby a new contract

Yeah it was Scarborough. It was a League cup night match. I think they scored 7 that night and Bunn did indeed bag 6. I think Andy Ritchie may have got the other.

They also reached the FA Cup semis at our expense in 1990. They had a decent side back then.

3-0 QF defeat IIRC

That plastic pitch was a huge advantage to them!

Yep me too had to wag school to go. Only got tickets on the coach on the way up there!  Happy days even though we lost.

A visual aid.  The points distribution table.  The league is just beginning to stretch its legs now.  Not just the automatic places.  Even the playoff sides are making a gap.

Brighton are fantastic hope they are crowned champions 

Honestly think they will eventually run away with it and leave Newcastle in a distant 2nd, possibly 3rd.

And every time you get arrested for indigent exposure. Wear more clothes blandy or at least some!

I don't think so I would applaud them as deserved champions
