Paul Dickov: Feels the time was right to leave Oldham

The 40-year-old was installed as Rovers' new boss on Monday, three months after he quit at Boundary Park just days after the Latics' shock FA Cup victory over Liverpool.

But their league form was poor and the former Scotland international battled with problems behind the scenes, which included his backroom staff being placed on gardening leave.

Dickov is delighted to be back in the dugout and believes his Boundary Park stint will stand him in good stead.

"There is a consensus out there that it didn't end right," he said. "From my point of view it did. I sat down with Simon Corney, who I still see now, and spoke about it.

"I had a fantastic two and a half years at Oldham, but it got to the point where I couldn't do my job properly.

"I had my staff taken away from me, I had no scouting network. Because of the fact that I couldn't carry out what I wanted to carry out, it was probably best that I resigned.

"That's in the past, what I will say is that it has made me a much better manager."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
