Despite Liverpool Win, Oldham Coach May Still Get Sack

Oldham Athletic’s improbable 3-2 win over Liverpool on Saturday may not be enough to save coach Paul Dickov’s job. Oldham owner Simon Corney and Dickov himself both admitted as much, following the fourth round FA Cup win at Boundary Park.

"It's very awkward," Corney admitted. "We will have to chat about it tomorrow. Paul has his own decision to make. Days like this are great but the biggest thing is about staying in this division." Corney is referring to Oldham’s precarious position in England’s Football League One Table (third division), where it is currently just one point above the relegation zone. The win against Liverpool was Oldham’s first in eight games.

"I don't know if it is enough [to save my job],” Dickov said. “Let me enjoy this first." When asked if he would still be the Oldham manager when Everton visits in round five, he replied: "I'll be a manager."

Reflecting on his team’s loss, Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers singled out his young players for being particularly disappointing. “I was really disappointed with our young players,” he said. “We're trying to give them experience and let them see what it's like to play for Liverpool. If you are going to win trophies and go far then you need to come to places like Oldham and win. We were not good enough."

    If anyone gets sacked it should be Rodgers. Playing in such an important game he should have had enough sense to play the players that would deliver. After they delivered then you put in the young ones. Dalglish was never given a chance and it seems that Rodgers is long on soccer knowledge but short on common sense.
