The Opposition View - Oldham

The Opposition View - Oldham


In the wake of yesterday's disappointing 2-0 defeat at Oldham, here are some views on the game from the Latics' manager Paul Dickov and a few of their fans.

Dickov was delighted to see his side cruise to victory.

"I'm pleased with the team performance because we created a lot of chances and had 21 attempts on goal," he said.

"I'm delighted with the win and also the clean sheet which was important as we've not had enough of them this season. My only criticism is that for all the goal attempts we had, we should have worked their goalkeeper more."

Picking out a couple of first-half incidents, Dickov said: "Shefki's was a stonewall penalty, even Gary Waddock said to me at the time that it was the most blatant penalty he's ever seen, but we kept going and their keeper's pulled off an unbelievable save from Shefki just before half time."

The Oldham boss was apparently expecting a tough game....

"We won 2-0 against a good team - I watched their game at Hartlepool last week and although they beat them 3-1 at a tough place to go, they could have won by more."


The Oldham fans were brutal in their assessment of Wycombe.

The following extracts are taken from OWTB and OAFC.

"A very dull game until the first goal. Cisak had nothing to do at all.'

"Good performance, and it's nice to see us kill a team off. It was very easy to see why Wycombe are relegation fodder (did Cizak have a save to make???) but a 'typical' Latics performance would have let that slip. Less said about the officials the better, missed a stonewall penalty and a straight red card for them.'

"A comfortable win against a poor team. Cisak was a spectator.'

"First half both teams were poor. Second half Latics upped their game and gave a decent all round performance. 3 points, job done.'

"Wycombe were very poor. Latics would need shooting if they hadn't dispatched them. We should have added at least 4 or 5 to our tally today. Kuqi does such an important job. Even in games like today when he's a little below par, he's a nightmare to defend against. It's a while since we had a frontman with such presence'

"It was nice to see some threat from our corners today. Mvoto and Kuqi went close, Taylor nearly got on the end of a few and Furball hammered one home - its been ages since we've had that much threat from them.'


astottie wrote:
"It looked like we'd bought a new "ideas from set pieces" book this week. Not all of them came off and one looked over elaborate but one came off and I'd settle for that every game.'


Bob wrote:
"After a poor first half we really got to grips and could have won 4-0.'

"Took a bit of time to grind them down but once we scored the first it was just a matter of time before the second.'

"Awful first half and we should've had a definite pen when Kuqi got pulled back. Second half we wanted it more and scored two really good goals.'

"I thought we were pretty awful today, but they were even worse and their "shots stats" are those of a struggling side.'
