    No plan B Shocking tactics

    Having had time to think about it, as bad as the 1st half was, I am pleased by the manager's ability to make a change and the players turning it round early on in the 2nd half. We absolutely had them on the backfoot at 3-2, but their 4th goal (arguably should have been disallowed) stopped the momentum. Its the first time this season I have seen us blatantly have less desire than the opposition (1st half v Oldham) but rather than roll over and die, we did put up a fight in the 2nd half. Bring on Tranmere!

    Oldham thugs are typical bullies and grandeur of delusion . Can't wait till we desroy them at fortress Gigg lane.

    He was fine on calling the fouls - got them all OK - but was weak and then inconsistent on cards.

    We’re not playing Scousers. They’re from Wirral! Presumably you’d object if they said ‘let’s beat those Mancs’ !

    Is there anything more fleeting than the favour of a Bury FC fan?

    Last time I looked a game lasted 90 mins. As ever give Lowe a chance. Some people are so quick to pull the trigger

    Weak referee , had a strong ref taken charge today would have been a different outcome

    Don't normally go on about refs as their job is difficult, however, this chap seemed determined we were going to get nowt from this game. He needs answer why a deliberate hand ball on the half way line stopping an attack is not a yellow. He gave Oldham two yellows in the first half when it should have been at least four. Was their third goal offside? Looked it from where I was sitting; replay not conclusive. The replay was conclusive that O'Grady fouled Murphy for their fourth. The final straw was when he waved on the late penalty shout when their defender fell to his knees, took the lace out of the ball and threw it in to the crowd! Must admit Oldham did play well in the first half.

    I think the OP was wrote at half time before the changes were implemented.

    Maybe it`s not the amount of people turning up but the amount of noise we`re making that`s throwing them off their game. We could try cheering quietly at Mansfield and see if that helps.🙊

    No plan B ,serious ? Yes we were bullied out of the first 45, PLAN B was the half time changes, had The 4 th not happened , a foul ? Who knows we would have got at least a point. So we slipped up and after 22 games have no plan B? ..sometimes I despair at such fair weather supporters. The ref didn’t control the game, Oldham bullied us, , but we will learn, as for no Plan B. Well I guess you have been waiting for this moment .

    I agree, most teams in this league are absolutely dreadful at pressing from the front. Oldham were really really good at it to be fair to them and when we did beat the press they took the piss out of the refs leniency by committing fouls in areas where we couldn't really hurt them.

    Good analysis that, particularly how they cancelled out our usual strengths. A Tom Pope/Eaves type up front would have suited us for this game. Still, I think more games than not we'll be fine with forwards with our current heights /strengths. Having reached mid December now, I think few teams will have players playing to that strategy like Oldham had today.

    He was absolutely garbage. I like Nicky but today he had a shocker despite the 2 assists.

    I'm happy for him, but we were right to let him go.

    The Oldham press and the aggression in the first half was really impressive. They had done their homework and cut off the ball from the wide centre halves into the wing backs and so the only options were risky balls into midfield or to lump it into the channels (or in Stokes' case, row Z). We miss a proper target man I think. They always come in useful even if they don't fit into your normal style of play. Couple of balls from Thommo into a target man today to get us 10 yards further up the pitch and take the pressure off the back 3, suddenly they drop off another 5 yards and then we get the extra couple of seconds to play and we can impose our usual style. Said at HT it had a Walsall feel about it and still fancied us to get back in it second half as I felt they wouldn't be able to maintain that intensity and the cynical fouls for the whole game. So it proved until the ref gifted them a 4th goal that killed all the momentum and subsequently, the game. Disappointed but not disheartened. Looking forward to a game against Tranmere in more favourable conditions!

    I'm bitterly disappointed with some of our players this evening. I can accept a loss, but I cannot accept the manner of a loss where we give such an abysmal performance in a derby game. This has been a monumental week for the club, where our new owner has talked about togetherness and community. Today our fans turned up in numbers on a miserable day and were once again let down. I'm not letting Oldham take all of the credit. They pressed well and had a good first half, but we were so poor across the entire team. Really, really poor - as bad as last season poor. Where on earth did this come from and why of all times in a local derby? Switching to a more effective formation, having a more engaged forward line and removing the useless Stokes, made us the better side in the second half, but the damage was done. These 'worst of the season' performances keep occurring in derby games when the fans turn up. I don't understand why. Its been happening for a few years now and it has to stop.

    100%. We had them on the ropes. Whether or not we'd have gone onto win the game I've no idea, but I definitely thought we were going to get another. Very frustrating

    Disappointing day but nothing more. Oldham hammered us out of sight in the first half and we couldn't have complained had we been 5-0 down at half time. When you examine the game we were only really at the races for about fifteen to twenty minutes in the second half and on balance got pretty much what we deserved.That doesn't make us a bad side btw, just a bit on the naïve side at times. Personally I think we should limit our away following to no more than 300. We tend to go to pieces when we bring more than that.

    Agree. As bad as we were first half, we would have got at least a point from the game if it wasn't for the refs bias towards Oldham.

    Lavery

    Really impressed with Lavery. Quickly got into the game, looked lively, found space and took his goals well. A contrast to the gutless, aimless display given by both Byron Moore and Nicky Maynard. However, I'm not sure if he's ready for a start following four months out. Perhaps a super sub for the next few games. But I'd certainly drop Moore for Telford next Saturday.
