Has to be the battle of the 'barmy armies'.

A good 10 mins of non-stop 'Warburtons Barmy Army' versus their equally non-stop ' Lee Johnsons Barmy Army'.

Well done to the Bees lads down the front for getting everbody going.

I think we did well to force a draw in this off the pitch contest.

Great atmosphere for 4 and half thousand.

Billy no mates with his flask on what their pa described as the sparkling new stand. And the banter from the fans. plenty of pics taken of him from all and sundry can anyone oblige?

Their fans singing 'where were you when you were s**t' to us.

Mildly amusing
lol I was at boundary park in the relegation season when we lost 3-1, does that count lol one of the worst performances I have seen, gutless performance it was.

Can't make up my mind, it's either the singing to us of " where were you when you were sh*t " or..... of listening to all the bees fans on the 182 bus back to Piccadilly trying to work out who's played what and who's got to play who and who will beat who, in other words trying to predict the rest of the season

Oldham fan's attempted London accents 'sit daaaawn shaaat up' fair play to them, decent atmosphere but not sure why oldham bothered opening the other 2 stands, they certainly don't need a fourth stand!

The Main stand was 80% full.

Directly after the Dallas chance, there was a guy two rows in front of my flat on his back on the steps. He wasn't moving and for a horrible moment I thought he was unconscious. The champagne moment for me was when he got up and I realised he was ok

He just needed a KFC bucket and a Stella mini-fridge.

Oldham School Choir behind the goal - clearly OAFC offer free entry if they chant in a high octave for the full 90 minutes - god my ear drums took an unexpected battering yesterday afternoon.

I'm not normally a fan of drums at football but the drumming for Lee Johnson's/Warburton's Barmy Army after a while took on a krautrock feel which was quite neat. Better than the football anyway.

I thought the general banter between us and the Oldham fans sat next to us was really good and generally much more inventive than usual.

Given that Oldham is normally absolutely freezing, another champagne moment was the warm sunshine throughout pretty much the whole 90 minutes.

I take my hat off to anyone who travelled up there !
It was the best one ever, I've done about 8 and never seen us win, the sun was out and not hint of trouble, no Micky Quinn or Wayne Harrison to deal with. The game was pants though, not as pants as all my other visits.

only 8 - you are lucky!

At least there was no ice on the hill up to the away end; however, the building site left my car covered in mud!

I did it once, nearly froze to death, we lost and I vowed not to return and haven't. Hopefully I'll not have the choice ever again and that they stay up this season.
