Home Boycott – 03/05/2022

Boycott BP The plain and simple fact here, following our relegation to the National League, is that a clear line must be drawn in the sand. Or perhaps in this case, a line must be drawn in the stand. We encourage people to read this entire statement, obviously, but the take-away message is clear…please consider …

Relegation Protest – 25/04/2022

Relegation Protest We can’t believe that we are even writing these words, but following our relegation from the English Football League, we feel it necessary to address the situation and what happens next. Over the course of the last 2 and a half years, Push The Boundary have attempted to raise red flags and plead …

Salford Game – 19/04/2022

Salford Game We are on the brink. 126 years of the football league comes down to Saturday. The 2-0 defeat against Forest Green has left us all but relegated. When the club has been run the way it has over the last 4 years, there is a  feeling that this was sadly inevitable, but it …

Joint Statement – Club Ownership – 08/04/2022

Abdallah Statement On the 11th January 2022, Abdallah Lemsagam announced to long suffering supporters that he was looking to sell Oldham Athletic Football Club.

Shez Returns – 23/01/2022

PTB Protest Update – 13/01/2022

PTB would like to place on record our disgust at the reports this afternoon that the owners of the club have both received death threats.

PTB Response to Steve Brown – 23/12/2021

Steve, We have just read the statement from the club (here) regarding the decision to rescind the 3 year bans handed out to 3 supporters. We are astounded by the lack of apology/ remorse towards the three lads involved and to then issue final written warnings would indicate that these supporters did something wrong which …

Open Letter to General Manager – 20/12/2021

Steve, You will no doubt be aware of why we are contacting you. We are at something of a loss as to how and why the action of banning two supporters has been taken. The timing, not only is it a few days before Christmas, but also a matter of days before the biggest game …

Supporter Respect – 17/12/2021

In recent weeks we have witnessed a number of incidents that we see are causing an increasing divide in our fanbase.

We will continue to try and represent …

Away Days Update – 08/08/2021

Supporters Deserve Respect! – 10/06/2021

As fans of Oldham Athletic we ask for very little, however one of the main things we ask for is to be shown an adequate amount of respect. Supporting a club is sometimes not always easy to do, but we do it because it’s a tradition passed down from our mums, dads, grandads and grandmas …
