    Wouldn't it be a fright to do it a natural way. Maybe spend half the season until January demonstrating that he's capable a few rungs up the ladder from League Two.

    Oldham are an absolute basket case the last year or two, Byrne's not had much luck the last few years with his moves since doing so well on loan in Holland. As mentioned above Paddy McEleney went over in the winter on a free and signed back for Dundalk there this month, said it's a basket case of a club. Wages unpaid, dodgy transfers in on big money relative to the division they were in who didn't give a fiddlers, new owner being shady to put it politely. Not heard much since on Oldham but the PFA and FA were getting involved plus the tax man was owed a few quid.

    Byrne not even on the bench for Oldham today and they could only name 6 subs as well. He's as well getting out of dodge and hopefully can get even a decent loan move before the window closes. If he's still there come January he'd nearly be as well coming home for a season or two to try get himself back on track and get a move back across then.

    lads he isnt good enough. I hope he can carve out a good living from football, but I sorry to say it looks unlikely, which is a real shame

    Seems to be following in Conor Clifford's footsteps. He should head back to Holland.

    I think someone on here said that about a year ago.

    Or maybe a change of career? Unsuccessful stints at Blackburn, Wigan and Oldham can't all be the clubs' faults??

    Free Jack Byrne is the hashtag up Oldham way after his mysterious, and as yet not fully explained suspension in pre season, and not a sign of him since.

    - http://www.the42.ie/free-jack-byrne-4180017-Aug2018/

    The fans want him back in their team, which is something I suppose, at least. He is never far from the news, Jack, but equally its never for the reasons you would hope.

    An update of sorts, from firstly the Oldham manager

We don't like what happened and this is how we've dealt with it.

    "You can't have people going against the tide. We're trying to produce a family atmosphere and a good working relationship with everybody and this is what we need.

    "There has been no distraction for the players at all. There have been no ifs or buts, it's just something we needed to keep a lid on until now.
    And chairman / owner

    "Any player that isn’t committed to this club will not feature for Oldham Athletic. I am pleased that our dressing room is now totally behind our management team; the players give total respect and dedication to Frankie Bunn and Andy Rhodes and, more importantly, Oldham Athletic."

    But Bunn is quoted in another article as saying he doesn't see anyone going out on loan, so who knows how this will end up


    - https://www.manchestereveningnews.co...ldham-15064533


    Looks a lot like a new manager in his first league job, needing to show he's in charge, to me, and JB ended up on the wrong side of that.
    Meanwhile, Byrne linked again with Peterborough on loan on that clubs forum this evening, a rumour that keeps coming back round.

    Released / contract cancelled by Oldham and joins Kilmarnock in the SPL on a one year deal, one last, one last chance. Again.

    Two Wiley old pro's and centre midfielders there in Lee Power and Gary Dicker. They've managed to carve out long careers varying levels of the game with much less ability than Byrne. Hopefully they can help guide him in the right path.

    Rumours abound on Twitter that he's after walking away from Killie

    He certainly could do with a Year or Two in the League of Ireland .

    It could be the makings of the Lad .

    Maybe if he is a very naughty boy then maybe Irish clubs won’t want him .

    Seems odd that the old dutch team he played for hasn't come back in for him. He seemed to fit in there.
    Then again, considering the "career ending" tackle he made on some fella in training at Oldham coupled with not being patient at Killie/being late all the time (so i've read) - he's not in a good negotiating position.

    Still seems to have buckets of talent - just needs a solid mentor figure and a kick up the arse

    Its not just that though, Blackburn didn't put him in, Wigan after giving him a three year deal didn't put him in and hinted at a fitness issue. There are too many 'its not me its them' episodes around this guy now to keep backing him, but hopefully this Kilmarnock thing doesn't come to pass, as I think it is his last chance at a good level.

    Utterly bonkers if true. Hints at something that it's even rumoured. When will the penny drop? Maybe never. And what will he have to show for it then? Eff all. Christ.
