Oldham played hard no doubt but not sure why a fair few are so accepting that we drew? Regardless of the dubious nature of the second goal we were also spared at least twice by Howard and allowed ourselves to be pressed once again. We had some decent possession but again players went missing.
People criticised Jelavic but at least he put the work in. Osman and Gibson strolled around the joint for 90 minutes.
Because in the league if you draw then you miss out on the maximum gain (3 points), draw in the cup and you can still get to the next round through a replay and in this case, an even better chance of getting the best outcome.
In short, In the league you lose 2 points for a draw, in the cup you don't lose anything therefore it's not something to get over dramatic about.
