Re: Our Manager's disciplinary record

Ta. The whole thing makes for interesting reading, and KR does not come out of it well. If he was a model of professionalism now, I'd probably just say that it's in the past and raking over it does no-one any good. However, his continued barracking of officials and sustained penchant for "industrial...

Re: Our Manager's disciplinary record

Link seems broken, RR - any chance of reposting or of quoting / summarising the relevant passage(s)?

Re: New signings

God, he doesn't learn does he? KR contradicting his previous comments by saying in today's OM that " I know where the problems lie... We do need to find some firepower ". Make your bloody mind up man! Also, he's sticking with his policy of talking openly about transfer targets to the local media, de...

Re: New signings

It’s a(nother) bizarre interview. Quite apart from the bit RR pulls out above, which suggests Robinson is unable / unwilling to accept that we look completely hopeless up front, the whole things reads like a none-too-subtle dig at the chairman. Take this bit: I have my own views on this that I’ll ke...

Re: Where are they now?

Everyone's favourite journeyman, Jefferson Louis, moves on from his stint at non-league Farnborough To-o-o-o-o-wn: Manager Spencer Day clarified: “ Jeff came to me this week and told me that with his promotion at work he was finding the travelling too much and impacting on both his professional and ...

Re: Coventry Blues

Otmoor Yellow - much to agree with in your post, but I'll pick up on two points which invited a response. I wonder if Robinson is trying to shoe horn our players into a system they're not able to deal with. Maybe the 4-2-3-1 is the modern formation, but when you attack, you leave 2 in midfield, whic...

Re: Coventry Blues

One other thought that I forgot to include above: We're rigid tactically, predictable to play against, not great to watch for long periods, and will win enough games to keep the manager in a job despite never being anywhere near good enough to mount a serious promotion challenge. "Karl Robinson is a...

Re: Coventry Blues

At least Baptiste was a shining light amidst the gloom Agreed - despite the best attempts of Coventry to foul him at every opportunity. Poor kid must've been bruised to buggery by full time! My worry with Baptiste is that he will sink to the level of disinterest / mediocrity of those around him rat...

Re: Spotafan Trophy / #BTeamBoycott

So, a relatively easy win against a B Team. But it was more about a night of setting some records - or was it? Despite having two 16-year-olds on the pitch at the end (Lopes and Spasov), neither was as young as Jason Seacole when he made his debut; and despite Spasov's goal, he wasn't as young as Gr...

Re: Spotafan Trophy / #BTeamBoycott

Thread renamed so it can be an all-purpose affair until this godforsaken format is dropped... Completely agree with Dr Bob's assessment of Hanson's situation. "Schrödinger's Ban" - he's simultaneously not banned from the competition, but not able to play either? Bizarre. Anyway, I shan't be at tonig...

- I got be train back to London. Some of the players got on at Darlington. They seem to get on very well indeed.

- not one of them knew of a stomach bug in the camp...
SO why do we think KR was going on about it in the post-match interview?

Indeed - also underpromise and overdeliver rather than the other way round.

Re: New signings

So, we now won't be signing Wes Hoolahan , who Karl Robinson had talked about openly after Saturday's game as being his next big target. Simple question from me - why name a player and add pressure onto yourself as a manager by raising fans' expectations unless you're sure the deal is done? I cannot...

Re: Land of the Caraboa, home of the beaver

Well, no complaints about that one. For once, it was Oxford who took our chances and had a slice of good fortune, against opponents who might feel the scoreline was a tad harsh on them. Isn't it nice for it to be that way round for a change? The game was dead as a contest in five minutes after Demet...
