Oldham chairman Simon Corney refused to clarify what the future holds for manager Paul Dickov despite him pulling off an FA Cup shock with a 3-2 win over Liverpool.

The Latics are 19th in League One, just a point above the relegation zone, and have had only one draw in their last eight matches.

A deserved victory over Premier League opponents does not appear to have safeguarded Dickov's short-term future and he and Corney will meet on Monday for talks about the way forward.

"We know we have poor form in the league and things need to be changed," said Corney just minutes after Oldham booked their place in the last 16 for the first time in 19 years.

"Football changes. People are very fickle, fans are very fickle, everyone is very fickle.

"Nothing will take away from the fact I need to change things to stay change in this division.

"Let's see what happens. Nothing has been decided and I couldn't tell you any more than that.

"I just want to enjoy today and the next 24 hours and we'll get back to work tomorrow.

"My thoughts change. We know we haven't done well and it's not a surprise.

"Paul is the first one to say when you get one draw out of eight games things are going to be spoken about and things are going to happen.

"But things in football change very quickly, we know that. One big win, two bad losses can change your mind.

"If you asked 1,000 people last week if we should change the manager 999 would have said yes. Today 999 would say no.

"I'm not ashamed or embarrassed to say it is difficult."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
