‘You appear to have lost the fans’ – These Oldham fans react to club’s Stevenage defeat

Oldham did themselves over at the weekend, taking the lead twice away at Stevenage before a late horror show saw them lose 3-2.

Having become one of only a handful of teams to play in all four divisions during the Premier League era, the long-suffering fans are perhaps justified in expecting more. Expecting something other than gutless displays against sides they used to play in the FA Cup only would be a good start.

Rookie manager Frankie Bunn was a star of their side in his playing days, but his management style is not cutting the mustard with the fans, nor the players. The Latics, relegated last season, are 17th this time around.

Chesterfield serve as a warning that slipping two divisions in one go is not beyond the realms of possibilities, although Macclesfield are so bad there appears to be one relegation place up for grabs.

The problems are now spreading through the fan base. As one of the best supported sides in the division, you’d expect them to take a good number to Tranmere, just under 50 miles away. thus far, they’ve sold just over 300 tickets.

The rot is spreading and even talk of a new manager is causing issues. Defender Peter Clarke, another rookie, has been mentioned. If Bunn goes, the next appointment could be the difference between a trip to Salford next season, or a visit to Bromley.
