Re: Nuke it

Oof, I really hate football shirts with a collar. Keep those for Polo shirts and work shirts, please. Surely this is the issue that will ultimately split mankind in twain. To me, football shirts are not formal work shirts, but nor are they informal t-shirts - they're something altogether different,...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

I guess it would really depend on WHERE within the county. A new ground in, say, Kidlington or Abingdon wouldn’t worry me, just as a ground in Headington never really bothered me. All are within easy striking distance of Oxford. On the other hand, a ground in Banbury, or Didcot, or Henley, would be ...

Re: Nuke it

To me, the design was reminiscent of the 1995/6 kit - with the omission, as OY points out, of a proper collar. Each to their own, but I've only bought replica kits in recent years that have at the very least a mini flappy collar (like last year). The new one looks too much like a t-shirt rather than...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

Reports have emerged today about a £2m bid from Nottingham Forest for Gavin Whyte. The report comes from the Belfast Telegraph. As far as I can tell, for now the Nottingham Post is repeating what the Telegraph has reported, rather than having any inside information from The City Ground. £2million s...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

Rob Hall has signed a further one-year deal, presumably on a lower wage. Smart business if it's dependent on appearances.

Re: LEAGUE ONE 2019-2020

I think I'm only missing Ipswich. That big group of North West teams is a bit depressing as in the last year or two, Virgin Trains seem to have reduced the number of advance tickets on the West coast line so it ends up around £100. Plus the endless, endless roadworks on the M5/M6 have made it a bug...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

If you'd told me that Sam Allardyce would be coming to Oxford United , I wouldn't have believed you! I'm heartened by the addition so far of promising young players on their way up. They won't all succeed, and there'll be some slip-ups on the way that might even cost us points a few times. But the m...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

He can play on either side, which in itself is a good reason to sign him - but he has mostly played on the left in recent years. Looks like a decent addition, albeit one for the future.

Re: (Not) Retained List

As for Kelleher, presumably the same goes for him. But why sign him, then send him on loan for two seasons rather than play him in the U23 squad and look to bring him through that way? Anybody know the story behind that? As I remember it, he was signed right at the death of Appleton’s reign, probab...

Re: Resumé

Let's start by revisiting what we as fans predicted before the start of the season . Much has been made about our "Top 7 budget", but amongst those of us who post on here, expectations were much more muted: - Me: 14th - Neil W: 9th - Dr Bob: 8th - Jimski: Bottom half - Werther's Original: 10th or 11...

Re: The Priory.

Perhaps someone with better knowledge of planning issues could advise why the council could not simply withdrawn permission for the hotel on grounds of breach of conditions, and force Kassam to pull the hotel down, extreme though that reaction might seem. I don’t profess to be an expert, although I...

Re: The Priory.

I always thought it was a crying shame that permission for the Hilton hotel wasn’t predicated on the Priory being an actual part of that development. It seems sacrilege to me that you’d build a utilitarian modern building next to a beautiful old fenced-off, boarded-up tumble-down building rather tha...

Re: Chris Wilder

CNEMWO OK I give up. Back in the day of Rage On as a physical fanzine you could buy with money, there was a running joke about Denis "Next England Manager" Smith (Out), aka DNEMSO, lampooning both his claims that he had once been under consideration for the national job and also how far he'd fallen...

Re: You're winding me up!

Anyone else anticipating a club statement in a week or so regarding the ownership of Oxford United? It's long been rumoured that Erick Thohir is the likely chairman in the long-term and that Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth will make a quick buck from his brief tenure and then ride off into the sunset. Tho...
