Re: Robinson Out

So, did we turn a corner or just have a Good Day yesterday against Pompey? Quite something to pull off a result and performance like that after our recent run. But many of the same problems (lack of striking options, lots of square pegs in round holes) remain. And we’ve only got ten days of the wind...

Re: January Transfer Window

And now Cameron Norman is sold to Walsall . So we've now lost both dedicated right-backs during this window without (so far) replacing them. We've also lost a player who most people felt was young, promising and developing well but who'd clearly fallen out with KR. Thing are definitely, clearly, emp...

Re: You're winding me up!

So, to quote Brenda from Bristol, “what, another one...?”

What the actual fuck is going on at our football club? And is our owner less of a Tiger, and more of a snake oil salesman...?

Re: Robinson Out

He’s got to go, hasn’t he? Even though we clawed back two goals yesterday for a point, nobody can pretend that this is a side on the rise. And we’re a third of the way into the transfer window and STILL haven’t signed a flippin’ striker! Lack-of-striker aside, this is nowhere near being a squad that...

Re: Robinson Out

I’d also like to see a proper, dedicated, competent left-back; maybe someone like Butler at Newport who looks a prospect. Now being rumoured on Twitter and the Other Place, I see. Just call me Nostradamus. Most likely scenario is Gobbo names him as a target, says we'll sign him within 24hrs, and th...

Re: January Transfer Window

I see Malachi Napa has come back to us following a loan spell at Sol Campbell's Macclesfield Town™. It'll be interesting to see what happens next. He flourished initially under Robinson, who really talked him up as a prospect - so much so that I was very surprised we loaned him out. The arrival of s...

Re: Robinson Out

I think OY has it right, to be honest - many people over-estimated the significance of our good run, just as many people over-estimated the significance of our bad one. Broadly speaking (and it is broad brush terms), our first dozen games were disproportionately against very good teams, and our seco...

Re: Robinson Out

I’d be surprised if he went any time soon. Plessantly surprised, but surprised nonetheless. The chairman has clearly backed him to sign this lad from Northern Ireland, as well as Jordan Graham and potentially a load of others (from what KR told Radio Oxford before the game). The time to sack him was...

Re: Singing the Big-Crowd Blues

I didn’t go (Jerome) - but seeing it described as a “big crowd” when we attracted 8,000-odd for a Third Division game made me chuckle. I was with Oxford-based family on Christmas Day, and I idly flicked through an old programme and did a double-take when I saw our Boxing Day game in 2006 against the...

Re: You’re not singing any more

I’m less convinced by the “KR is a tactical genius” trope. Most of us were saying last Easter that Mousinho wasn’t a centre-back and should be played at centre mid. THe fact that it took Gobbo until October to try it confirms my suspicion that he’s a paid-up member of the Slow Learners Club. I’m als...

Re: January Transfer Window

Striker please. That is by far the biggest priority. I'm happy with the midfield. I'm happy with the goalkeeping. Both full back positions could do with upgrading as well. Basically this, although personally I think we're fine at right-back. What has Cameron Norman done to upset KR? His performance...

Re: Another loss...

On a superficial level, I don't really care about a loss in the Spot A Scab cup. However, one cannot ignore the following: - The excuses around injuries no longer wash. Of our 'big' players, only Rob Hall is now still in the physio's room. Some of the others may be working their way back to full fit...

Re: Oxford Cty

Ty - just to reiterate, I wasn't having a pop. It's just interesting that Oxford City look set be a beneficiary of his largesse for many years to come whereas we could soon conceivably be in the same division as we were when he took over, still without a ground of our own and still not in a sustaina...
