    I'm sure you'll appreciate that Latics supporters find it very hard to talk about that goal at the end of the 1994 F.A. Cup sem-final, which is generally accepted as changing the history of both clubs. It's said that time is a great healer, but the pain caused by that goal never seems to diminish.

    Many of us have wondered what would have happened had that shot not gone in. Nick Hancock thought about it and included it in his book ' What Didn't Happen Next - Alternative History of Football'.

    It was a contrast to 1993, when in the last week of the year Oldham had to beat a title-chasing Villa away, then Liverpool and Southampton at home to stay up, and hope an Arsenal side with nothing to play for could then beat Crystal Palace. All 4 results went Oldham's way, and Palace were the only team in the EPL to ever go down with 49 points.

    Palace were a yo-yo side for a while after that, before they returned to the top flight in 2004. With 2 games of the following season remaining, they were leading 2-1 at home to Southampton, and decided to wind down the clock instead of get a third. Instead, Southampton went down the other end and equalised. Both sides were relegated the following week and Palace haven't been back since.

    9:40pm on a Thursday night and they go to the Stadium to stand behind someone for the chance of getting on the news. The 2 lads pretending to hump each other are no doubt wanking themselves silly right now after raking in 'likes' from the LADBible or something similar. What is wrong with them?

    Any grown man who shows up at a football ground on deadline day needs to take a long look at themselves.

    A week's a long time in football, but 1 point out of 27 takes many weeks of bad performances.

    Paul Dickov said on Friday:
    "Nobody needs to tell me we need to pick up results in the league. We go down there with a lot of confidence, but also knowing league form hasn't been great. It has to start picking up.

    Iím humble - but also confident in my own ability.

    The boys have gone on record saying how much they back me. I'd rather they kept their mouths shut and got a result."


    Once again the players did not give 100% in the League yesterday, with a 3-1 defeat in spite of taking the lead at Walsall.

    Dickov's record:
    Played 140 Won 43 Drawn 38 Lost 59

    Club issues statement

    After yesterday's defeat to Walsall, Paul Dickov has decided that for the good of Oldham Athletic Football Club, it is best that he steps aside.

    Following the memorable wins against Nottingham Forest and Liverpool, when the squad proved what they were capable of, Paul had hoped these would be the catalyst to improved results in npower League One, but this has proved not to be the case.

    He has been disappointed at the level of commitment and performances and feels that a change is needed if the club is to survive in League One.

    In nearly three years, Paul has shown his tremendous potential as a manager and the board of directors would like to express their appreciation for his commitment, both to the club and the fans.

    Everyone at the club wishes Paul and his family all the best for the future.

    Saw the goals in your game last night. No point in raising your game to beat the murderers if you are to get relegated. Inevitable he had to go really. Still he did give Dean Kelly his shot at the Football League!

    A new manager will have to be appointed to Ice Station Zebra, aka Boundary Park asap. I hope for the sake of Cousins Dozens that the new manager keeps Oldham Athletic in the FL1. The Oldham Hoops are great people and I enjoy reading the contributions of our contingent from that cold part of Northern England especially when they talk of football's ability to break down barriers amongst supporters from different cultural backgrounds.

    Chant of the season by Norwich fans at QPR at the weekend. To the tune of 'Call me Maybe'.....'Im Odemwingie, and this is crazy. I'm in your car park so sign me baby'......

    Talking of United, today is the 55th anniversary of the Munich Aircrash.

    Always remembered, never forgotten
    There is a light that never goes out
    "I'll never play for another team in the South of Ireland. It would be too weird and too hard"
    "Does your barman know you're here?"
