Back in 1991, Joe Royale guided Oldham Athletic to the first division following a dramatic last day of the season title win away to Sheffield Wednesday.
The Latics would spend three seasons in the top flight before being relegated in 1994 and then dropping further into the third tier in 1998.
Since then, the Latics have not made it back to the top two tiers and have only managed to reach the League One play-offs on one occasion, back in 2007.
In 2018, Oldham dropped into League Two for the first time since 1971 and finished in a disappointing 14th place last term.
This season, under Dino Maamria, the Latics have struggled to put together any kind of run and find themselves currently sat 18th in the League Two table.
Last week, the club confirmed that it agreed the sale of their Boundary Park ground to Brass Bank Limited, a deal which the club says will help secure the future of the club.
On Monday, the club announced via Twitter, that a book was being produced about their triumphant 1990-1991 season and were looking for fans to share their favourite memories of that campaign.
🤔 Have a favourite memory of the 1990/91 season?
Dave Moore and Rick Holden are producing a book and want submissions from the Latics faithful! #oafc

Accompanying the tweet, the club shared the famous penalty which secured their 1991 title and mass pandemonium at Boundary Park.
Fans were quick to reminisce about that game and the campaign, with many noting how far the club has unfortunately fallen since then.
Here we take a look at some of the best talking points following this latest Oldham Athletic throwback…
From them glorious days to this dire and utter shambles of a club!!

Roy of the Rovers stuff. Brilliant times and what a crowd! I tell my lad he just looks at me as if to say ‘yeah, right. Oldham in the top flight with more than a 5000 crowd? Really?’

The pace at which Paul Moulden (10) takes out an on- rushing fan from the Chaddy is a mesmeric sideshow to the main event here.
The very finest of memories. Pictured from behind the Chaddy end goal there were folk in the floodlights of the Rochdale Road End #oafc

Ipswich away was the best in terms of promotion, but Sheff weds away was also a top game
