I'm sure Obika found KR's comments a real confidence-boost too.....

Re: New signings

Of those we've brought in or been linked to, my brief thoughts are: Ricky Holmes - Could be a very good addition. Hard-working winger who usually looked good when playing against us. I'd question why Sheff U are willing to let him go so soon after joining though. Jem Karacan - No thanks. Yes, played...

Re: New signings

More good work. United capture experienced right back Tony McMahon after he left Bradford City in May. McMahon has penned a two year contract. He has previously played for Middlesbrough, Blackpool, Sheff Utd and Bradford City. Bit of a "meh" signing that, IMHO. 32yo right back, with a dubious disci...

Re: Where are they now?

He dos like a court appearance doesn't he. Out of interest, does anyone know which ex-Oxford player has been charged with the worst offence/done the longest period of time at HMP's pleasure? Josh Payne must be a candidate but have there been others? Probably Luke McCormick who was sentenced to 7 ye...

Re: Oxford Cty

The previous owner didn't really invest much in the club though did he - hence the falling down divisions rather than going and then looking up before he sold up. Personally I don't have a problem with Eales looking to get his investment back, it was his money that brought the likes of Roofe, Marv ...

Re: Oxford Cty

Whilst we are talking City, what happened to the Oxford Football Partnership between Oxford United and Oxford City, which I think ended up being between Ensco (i.e. Eales's company) and City according to Companies House? http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/sport/oxfordunited/15300400.Oxford_United_and_Oxfo...

Nevertheless, SkyBet does have us as second favourites for 21st.

Re: Going Down??

I very much doubt the football predictions website takes into account our record against Southend over the previous decade (after all, why should it? Different teams/managers over that time). Anyway, the bookies have us marginally more likely to win than Southend, but it could go either way. That s...

Re: Going Down??

This prediction table still has us staying up. (I first checked it before the Fleetwood game and it had evidently predicted a draw in that, as we now have one fewer point predicted.) https://www.footballwebpages.co.uk/league-one/league-table/predicted I still fear the worst, but then I generally do...

Re: Records show structure of Oxford United takeover deal

Also, Tiger is putting the club into debt rather than himself - to fund the purchase of the club! Isn't this basically what the Glazers did at Man Utd which pissed so many of their fans off? Yes, although if you do it with a house it's called a 'mortgage' and I've heard they're quite popular.... Ex...

Why aren't the fans more angry? Why is OxVox more interested in slagging fellow fans off than sounding loud alarm bells?
Do you want the long or the short answer to that one?!

Re: Appleton IN

Is that the same shell of a club that finished 8th in league one our highest position for years? Wasn't Les Taylor academy manager until recently and we're now advertising for another. Commercial managers have always come and gone - I imagine once they realise they have very limited scope to achiev...

Re: Appleton IN

I really don't see how this is being used as a stick to beat Eales with Hmm, really? We have/had a manager who has stated that he wants to prove himself as a manager at the highest level. Over the past two seasons he has won promotion and then gone on to finish within touching distance of the play-...
