Re: Rotten

I had a premonition of what was going to happen, so I took advantage of Welsh lockdown being over and took myself off up a mountain with no mobile reception so I didn't succumb to temptation to follow the game. Still seething at the result and what I've read about the match. My main thought - simila...

Re: on trial

The Oxford University vaccine, at 70-90% effective, sounds promising. Apparently there's also an Oxford Brooke vaccine - it's 15% effective and still in bed.

Re: Red fire coming out from his Gills

Can I just point out that we had a very good centre back, and sold him during the summer, for what many regard as a pittance. Had we got him sorted on a long term contract 18 months ago, we would now either have a decent centre back or funds for a decent centre back. Agree with the first sentence, ...

Re: Cods Wallop

Agree, OY. And I'd add that if you don't drop Simon Eastwood when his confidence is shot and he's regularly costing us a goal every game, when do you drop him? We keep hearing good things about Stevens and how "he is determined to take his chance next time it comes around" - so why not give him a m...

Derby day dawning

So, after being awarded three points last night by the FA to make up for the fact that we weren't playing a club with any right to exist, we now have to prepare for a game on Saturday against one of the few teams in Div 3 whose start has been almost as bad as our own. Have to say, I'm worried about ...

Re: Where are they now?

Because I'm a glutton for punishment, over the last five days I have watched both Wales v Ireland and Wales v Bulgaria on S4C, and been impressed by Tyler Roberts (14 games, 0 goals, 2016/17 season) in both matches. Even with my average Welsh, I could fathom the commentators being equally glowing - ...

Re: Red fire coming out from his Gills

We definitely need a big old beast with a load of lower league experience somewhere in the back four to shore it up. Just someone to put a rocket up the rest of them. Agree with that. The moment I knew we were going to be serious contenders in the Conference in 2009/10 was when we signed Mark Creig...

Crewe-perbole

A lot of bluster knocking about on social media (from both sets of fans) over the decision to postpone today's game. But if you look at the club statement , it's neutrally-worded and measured. Crewe travelled down yesterday, a test showed up positive today, and all parties agreed the postponement. T...

Re: Trouble with a drunk coach

I wonder how much all these issues with iFollow are costing lower league clubs? I've yet to part with any money to use it (if I'm that fussed about a game, I'll find a way to listen to Radio Oxford), but the longer we go without supporters being allowed in, the more I'd possibly consider it. However...

Re: L'éléphant dans la pièce

I really really miss football. But what I miss is the live experience of it (ditto music as well). I have zero interest in watching us play on my laptop every Saturday afternoon, and probably won't be motivated to pay a tenner to do so. In the absence of OUFC, what I really want to do is go and watc...

Dickie Heads

To QPR , for an undisclosed fee (believed to be around the £1m mark, with add-ons but presumably also some money due to Reading too). I'd imagine we all feel he's worth more than that but have to temper that emotion with the fact that he's got less than a year on his contract. For me the bigger que...

Re: Next Season

A good analysis. The only area which I think you’ve forgotten is our plethora of promising youngsters who could (and, given the financial uncertainty, will probably have to) make the step up. Off the top of my head: Nico Jones - has started league games before for us at CB and looked very assured. F...

I don’t normally post immediately after a game, but here are a few random thoughts: Football on telly is rubbish, isn’t it?
