Great win for Oldham tonight, wouldn't have minded played Wolves in the Cup this season. Also a blow for Wolves having James Henry out for a few weeks.

In the cold light of day...
...I recall Reid himself going down like a sack of spuds at the back post to "win" a penalty a couple of years ago and looking a bit embarrassed afterwards, and Long doesn't mind hitting the deck under minimal contact.
I don't think there's real corruption as in little brown envelopes, it's just that homers are given more often because of the numbers of people yelling for it, and at the big clubs there are more people yelling for it. I don't see why a replay ref can't be called for on dodgy pens, the games almost always stopped at that point anyway. The main reason why that isn't done seems to be that we've never done it that way before, which isn't really the best reason.
The sulky prat side of Jose is never that far away - he reckoned we never got beyond the half way line. Strange we scored 2, hit the post and had another gilt edged chance.
