Why do we always lose when the opposition is reduced to 10 men?

Bradford and Fleetwood both play on Easter Monday,and could pile the pressure on. Bradford are away at Sheffield Utd.
Fleetwood have a home game with Millwall.

It was utterly predictable as always.

We went there on the defensive and got what we deserved.

Any half decent manager would have ditched the 3-5-2 and gone 4-4-2 and attacked the opposition. But no, a 5'8'' striker up top on his own trying to get his head on numerous punts from the defence. It is criminal.

Does anyone seriously think Parky is a good manager? If we do somehow make the Championship does anyone really think his one dimensional hoofball will prevail?

Report: Oldham Athletic 1-0 Bolton


OVERVIEW

Ten men Oldham Athletic pulled off a victory that gave their survival hopes a shot in the arm, whilst consigning Wanderers to a second successive defeat on their travels.

A scrappy goal from Lee Erwin after Michael Ngoo saw red proved to be enough for the hosts despite Wanderers throwing everything they could to get a goal – even hitting the woodwork on two occasions.

TEAM NEWS

There was just the one change from the side that were defeated at Scunthorpe United seven days earlier with Derik coming in for Conor Wilkinson. There was a change in shape in the middle with Josh Vela playing in an advanced role behind Adam Le Fondre.

FIRST HALF

Wanderers started brightly with their hosts looking nervy in the early stages. The travelling support of 3,400 was in fine voice from the off.

The first corner of the game went to Oldham, but there was a lot of pushing and shoving in the box which resulted in a Wanderers free-kick.

The game soon settled down and Oldham were starting to keep their foot on the ball.

Filipe Morais’ failure to clear the ball from danger resulted in Lee Erwin flashing the ball wide of Mark Howard’s left hand post.

A miss-kick from Connor Ripley put some unnecessary pressure in his defenders when Morais intercepted. Wanderers were hungry to make the most of this unexpected opportunity but Oldham eventually cleared their lines after several attempts.

Darren Pratley spurned Wanderers’ best chance when he fired over from 15 yards after Morais picked him out with a drag back.

Wanderers’ constant pressure resulted in three successive corners, the latter of which saw a chance fall to Pratley who half-volleyed over the bar.

SECOND HALF

No changes were made during the interval with Wanderers attacking the end which housed their vociferous supporters.

Wanderers attacked from the off and a good move culminated in Derik finding the advancing Morais, who was thwarted by the quick thinking of Ripley who charged off his line to narrow the angle.

Dervite was the first Wanderer to have his name taken by the referee for a clumsy challenge on Banks after 50 minutes.

The hosts almost broke the deadlock when Paul Green’s drive through a sea of shirts only to find Howard who firmly held on to the effort.

The game was heating up at both ends by now and a goal appeared to be inevitable.

A deep Moxey cross found the head of Pratley but the Wanderers skipper was unable to direct his chance past Ripley.

Wanderers stepped up another gear and Morais’ cross was cleared off the line by McLaughlin defender who was under intense pressure from Pratley at the far post.

The visitors were given a boost when Michael Ngoo was dismissed after being shown a second yellow for a clash with Pratley.

Wanderers were looking to make their numerical advantage count right away and were camped in their opponents’ half.

Phil Parkinsonmade his first change on 70 minutes with Clayton coming of for Pratley. A change in shape ensued with Wanderers looking to up the ante from an attacking perspective.

Spearing skewed his left footer from distance well wide.

But a rare foray into the Wanderers third almost saw Erwin open the scoring but he fluffed his lines with only Howard to beat shooting horribly wide.

But the deadlock was broken with 15 minutes to go against the run of play when Erwin bundled the ball over the line.

The visitors almost restored parity seconds later when Dervite’s powerful drive was cleared off the line.

Parkinson made another attacking change when Henry came on for Moxey as Wanderers tried to do everything they could to get back in the game.

Wanderers were laying siege to the Oldham goal, but were struggling to find a way past Ripley.

The hosts had the bar to thank for keeping their lead when Le Fondre turned Derik’s low srive onto the woodwork.

Parkinson’s last throw of the dice saw Long come on for Derik for the final five minutes.

And in the first minute of injury time Long volleyed a thunderous strike against the cross bar which was eventually cleared.

Wanderers did everything but score but luck wasn’t on their side today.

Parky already has a masterplan for next season.

Assuming we are promoted, he is hoping to tempt Peter Crouch to sign a two year contract giving him two years to devise Plan B.

I'd be happy with Peter Crouch, but it's more likely he'll offer Madine a 10 year contract.

Three huge liabilities on the pitch for us today.

Howard - Booted the ball out of play with nearly every kick.

Pratley - Shit. Just shit.

Moxey - Unbelievably shit.

Yet still we dominated most of the match, without creating many good chances. Oldham would have been quite jammy to win it even before the sending off.

Still, very very embarrassing day for us.

Clearly Nat's tactic of saying we'll get dicked every game is past it's sell by date.

And Boggers unbounded confidence in a huge win for the team every game clearly doesn't hold any water.

Perhaps we'll be able to write in a balanced way without being labelled negative or happy clapper for a while?

What am I saying? Of course not.

I was pretty confident today,against my better judgement. 
The fact is,we have a pretty decent run in,and we should be dealing comfortably with the likes of Oldham.
It'd be nice if Bradford and Fleetwood did us a favour on Monday,but I'm not holding out for it.
Bury is a must win game now. Let's not blow it.

Total bottle job. Oldham were pathetic even with 11 men and though we totally dominated the match Parky persists with just 5 foot nothing Le Fondre up front on his own. We created next to nothing all afternoon until he brought on Henry and Long when things turned to shit in the second half. Pratley has been brought back too soon and is next to useless. The less said about Moxey the better, he was awful.
We've lost embarrassingly to fucking Rochdale and Oldham now this season, let's just hope we don't complete the set against Bury on Tuesday night.

I keep coming back to this thing about Division 3 being absolutely piss poor.

It must be......and we have been very fortunate to be where we are.

Can anybody put their hand on their heart and say: "Yes. We have been head and shoulders above the vast majority of teams in this league and we deserve to go up because we are so much better than the rest".....?

No, of course not.

Otherwise we wouldn't all be sweating on getting a result against fucking Bury on Tuesday.

In the past, whenever we've gone up, there's been real belief there and we've gone into every game thinking that we'd win.

Again, can anybody say that's been the case this season?

We've stumbled along and somehow wound up with our destiny in our own hands with three games to go.

That, despite having a manager who makes M#g##n look like Alex Fucking Ferguson and relying heavily on a "striker" whose career record is about one in five and who we signed for fuck all because nobody else would entertain signing the useless twat.

But that said, without him, we've been atrocious.

What the fuck's that all about?

It's been a weird season....

It is a piss poor division. No idea how we are 2nd but we are. 

I went to watch Wigan v Rotherham last week. Rotherham are bottom of the Championship with 18 points from 42 matches. They are a much better team than we currently are. If we do go up unless there are massive changes I think it could be a long season next season.

Ha ha, it shouldn't take a pitiful defeat at Oldham to wake you bellends up - I've been telling you for weeks we are doomed under this manager.

There is no long term future under Parkinson, I agree with the post above that we would be lucky to get 20 points in the Championship with this squad.

If I'm being honest I'm really not that bothered if we fuck it up and stay in League 1 because I fear there could be some big shame coming our way in the Championship.

Parky should be sacked today, we were second in the league with a huge away following and he goes to the mighty Oldham with defensive tactics and gets exactly what his negativity deserved.

Fuck off.

I said weeks ago if there is a way to fook this up then Parky will find it.

Wilkinson last week ...... one striker against bloody Oldham this week.

Now instead of cruising home we have a must win against Bury. Phil might play Beevers as center forward and no strikers at all....nowt would surprise me.

I'd rather he did play Beevers at centre forward if he's going to play hoofball.

I just can't understand a manager thinking that a short bloke up front is going to prosper under hoofball tactics.

Parky out.

I'm bothered if we don't get promoted because I'd rather scrape along near the bottom of the Championship with the possibility of some new investment than face what increasingly looks like the financial wilderness we're heading for if we don't go up.
Forget the potential humiliation - it's money we need because that should make things better in the longer term. Plus we'll probably be a division above Wigan, Rovers, Bury, Oldham and Rochdale so bragging rights won't be completely gone.

I always think of winning 2 nil away from home as being a huge win but compared to some of your recent offerings, it was relatively restrained TBF.

However you did assert that "we'll dispose of Oldham no problem" which I thought was characteristically jingoistic.

Hard to predict what this team will do though because despite having massive reservations about the players and the manager they have produced the occasional dominant performance this season. They just can't be relied upon.

The rumours are that if we do go up, there's big Chinese money coming so we can't really afford to blow this.

I just hope that Big Ken conveys that fact to Parkinson in a way which leaves him in absolutely no doubt as to what the consequences of failure would be.
