Re: New signings

I also see that two attacking players did not join OUFC within 24 hours of KR saying this: http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/sport/16355880.karl-robinson-expects-two-attacking-players-to-join-oxford-united-in-next-24-hours/ Indeed. I don't know what's worse - the Oxford Fail 's desperation for content th...

So, has anyone from this board made the trip over to Ireland to watch the pre-season tour? If so... updates please!

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: Harry Kane vs Rob Duffy

As we've mentioned VAR, what are people's thoughts? I was sceptical of it beforehand, and now feel vindicated. It's not stopped there being controversy, it's just added an extra dimension to it. Plus it has fundamentally changed the sheer joy of the moment when your team score - surely the best feel...

Re: Harry Kane vs Rob Duffy

Big question mark for me about how England will do in their next game when they come up against decent opposition - although the same can probably be said of Belgium too. What I cannot for the life of me understand is why England eased off against Panama in the second half when one more goal (or one...

Re: Predictions

Making predictions is a mug's game... so here goes. :lol: I don't share OY's optimism. Not one bit. Karl Robinson talks a good game, and is clearly competent, but I don't think he's as good as many fans think. He's also not (so far, at least) signed players who immediately make me think he can impro...

Looks like the new draw is dying on it's feet.
Hog gets his way as the new format is dropped because of lack of interest, and we'll revert to the old version.

Re: Where are they now?

On the move again - Jefferson Louis (now aged 39!) signs for non-league Farnborough Town. His 37th club (and counting). Fair play to the bloke - to still be drawing a wage from football at his age is astonishing.

Re: Where are they now?

Missed this one; Peter Leven now works in Belarus ... http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/sport/16240136.Former_Oxford_United_star_Peter_Leven_stunned_as_Diego_Maradona_becomes_his_new_boss_in_Belarus/ Weird scenario playing out there. But what interested me in the article was the second half of it, where ...

Re: New signings

KR wants to sign Samir Carruthers http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/sport/football/headlines/16238264.Oxford_United_boss_reveals_top_transfer_target/ Quite an unusual way to do transfer business, but I think the penultimate paragraph is the most telling: “I think players who may want to leave might look ...

Re: Retained list

Not sure I'm convinced, TBH - but if Chris Allen is happy with the change, then fair enough.

Re: Retained list

Doesn't that still constitute a demotion for Chris Allen though? Gone from coaching the first team to coaching the kids.

Re: Retained list

Well, Eastwood has signed a three-year deal , so you can update your records OR! Fantastic news, IMHO. There aren't many better 'keepers in this division. I'm pleasantly surprised as I thought he'd be gone by August. There were plenty of rumours about him being unhappy under Clotet (which Eastwood h...

Re: Going Down??

Otmoor Yellow - just to be clear, I take basically the same view as you over Wimbledon and Kingstonian. However, there are two sides to every argument and the fate of the K’s has been used as a stick with which to beat AFCW. My point is that whatever your view of that (or Ardley’s hoofball tactics),...

Re: Retained list

So who does that leave that is still under contract? Eastwood Mousinho Dickie Ledson Ruffels Carroll Brannagan Henry Napa Obika Anyone else? What about Kelleher? I note he hasn't been mentioned in the same way that Raglan and Hemmings have. Speaking of which, I'd rather keep Wes Thomas than Kane He...
