The Opposition View - Oldham

The Opposition View - Oldham


Following yesterday's gut-wrenchingly cruel 2-2 draw with Oldham Athletic, here are some thoughts from Latics' manager Paul Dickov, their captain Dean Furman and a few of their fans.

Dickov was disappointed not to win.

"If you look at the clock at 88-89 minutes and see we're 2-1 down, you would think we would be delighted to take a point," he said. "But I'm a little bit disappointed because in the first half-hour when we were 1-0 up, we could have gone two or three up."

"This was a long trip, and to score the equaliser in the last minute everybody's buzzing in the changing room at the minute, but I don't think we should be, I think we should be better than that."

Furman was delighted to snatch a late draw.

"We can say we had a bit of luck when they missed the penalty which could have made it 3-1, but when that went wide I felt that was our lifeline. The belief came flooding back as soon as he missed it and we pushed for an equaliser."

"The referee evened things up and it's great to have players of the quality of Robbie Simpson who under great pressure and exceptional circumstances can step up and slot home a penalty like that."


It felt like a win to the Oldham fans who weren't very happy with their own team's performance.

The following extracts are taken from owtb and oafc.

"Battered them for the first 30 mins then gifted them a goal. From that moment we bottled it and there was only going to be one winner. They should have put the game out of sight with the penalty miss. Then in the last minute a long ball forward and tonk got the right side of the defender and went down. We then did our best to gift them the win in the 5 mins of injury time. Poor, poor game.'

"When we got it down and passed it, we looked ok, and after Morais' cracker it looked as though we'd wipe the floor with them until that comedy act to gift them the equaliser. It knocked the stuffing out of us and I was relieved to go in all square at HT. Pity Kuqi's 'goal' was ruled out. it was a terrific hit. I still thought we'd win it, we looked good enough without being brilliant, Their second was a sickener. I didn't think we'd get it back with only 10 or 15 mins left and their pen should have killed us off. It was a shocking penalty and was probably the bit of luck we've been missing for a while.'

"We were ok in patches today and you have to give credit to Wycombe who, whilst clearly not good enough for this division, never gave up and played pretty well for 20 mins in the second half and could, maybe should, have won it.'

"Nearly snatched defeat from a game we should have won, AGAIN. On the plus side, only Wycombe out of the bottom 4 can catch us now and they've got to go to Charlton and Sheff Wed.'

"For Wycombe to get 6 points more than us in the next 3 games is not realistic no matter how bad we currently are!'

"Wycombe's keeper was a tool of the highest order. Yes we have our numpties but there was no need for him to mouth off after the game for 10 mins, effing and jeffing. The biggest joke was his time wasting.'


Bristolatic wrote:
"Not a happy bunny,was he? Very unprofessional; he should have been above that. And where did that spare ball come from that he hammered into the away end? A right show of petulance, bless him.'


Ritchierich wrote:
"Well done to those of us that went but can the planks who were singing 'you're not fit to wear the shirt' please take a long hard look at themselves!?'

"Dickov looked over when these numpties started chanting 'you're not fit' - clearly not impressed. Many of that fickle group were also the ones dancing around at the front after Simmo pulled us level. it was a highly entertaining finish to the game and the players showed good fighting spirit to keep plugging away under difficult circumstances. I never thought I'd feel so good about witnessing a late Latics equaliser away at Wycombe, the significance of which is about keeping us in the third tier of English football for the 16th consecutive season.
