Jon Otsemobor equalised for the Dons but Robinson's men conceded goals either side of half-time to go down 3-1 at Boundary Park.

"This is the first time I've ever said sorry to the chairman for the way we played," said Robinson, whose side now languish in the bottom half of League One.

"I would also like to apologise to the fans because that performance was just not acceptable.

"I have told the players exactly what went wrong, but anybody could have walked into the game and seen we weren't good enough.

"I can't defend that performance and I'm not going to try.

"Oldham worked harder than us and it's time for the players to stand up and be counted.

"There's playing football and there's being stupid and, for Oldham's first goal, we lost the ball just outside our own box.

"For their second goal we gave the biggest man on the pitch a free run at the ball. It's not good enough."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
