Karl Robinson: Upset with his players

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."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
