Re: Oxford Cty

Eales I supposed could have kept the existing situation as a small earner, but perhaps he decided being paid back the investment was financially better, fairer to City, or he needed a clean break from Oxford. I suspect that it's the latter. The Companies House records show that the ties were severe...

Re: Robinson Out

I suspect Tiger isn't as wealthy as was originally made out. I have absolutely no doubt about that. One of the concerns I have at the moment is the announcement of Zaki Nuseibeh coming on board as a director. It was his firm who loaned Reading $25m whilst Tiger and Co were there, and on his RadOx i...

Re: Robinson Out

Also, the last league game I watched was at Sunderland - a really quite impressive performance. So we know that Robinson can motivate his players to perform, he's just not doing it nearly enough. I would suggest that it actually demonstrates the complete opposite. It's a bit of a cliche, but the pl...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

Time for a new stadium is now. Disagree. Time for a new stadium was three/four years ago. There was a gaping window of opportunity then which, with a little vision and commitment on the part of certain parties, could have resulted in a solution which satisfied the needs of all the key players. Neve...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

I'm sorry Myles but I'm not having that. I know of three instances (including one at my Wife's work) where bills were not paid by Firoka for work carried out or goods not supplied following payment to Firoka. I've never had to personally deal with them (I work in a different industry) but I would t...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

There was so much bullshit spoken by the club at the forum, about our license at Grenoble Road. I have a copy of the license. Likewise, although for the life of me, I can't find where I've put it! Is there a clause in there which allows the club to take over the F&B concessions with 3 months notice...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

I think where Kassam is very wary is that another stadium owner makes money from the stadium that he could do, for short term gain. Part of Kassam's issue is that when there is a change in ownership of the club, he ends up having the same conversations and receives the same sort of offers as he's h...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

Some random thoughts on all this. - The deliberate misinformation from the club about how much we are paying Firoka really doesn't help. As I understand it, the club does have grounds to query what they are being asked to pay in the service charge, but portraying the situation as we are being asked ...

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...
