Re: Season Over?

Taylor is a true number 9. For years we’ve wanted a regular goal scorer. The mythical 20 goal striker. Well he’s got 14 (?) in 3/4 of a season. Some will never be satisfied. The current Fence End pod episode makes the very good point that Taylor is a great player at this level, but we need to suppl...

Re: Season Over?

I agree with you. That’s our season done now. Mid-table mediocrity. I’m okay with that, I think - to make the playoffs two years running and not be able to go would have been a real killer. I just hope the ownership stuff all gets sorted swiftly so we go into next season with some certainty. Where I...

Anyone a size M?

I'm having a clearout, and have a navy blue OUFC zip top from the 2015/16 promotion season (with an Ox head on the breast and "Oxford United" across the back) and a generic navy blue OUFC polo shirt (with Ox head logo) going free to a good home. Both in decent condition and have a few more years of ...

Rickety Buckets! Rabbity Biscuits! What fun we had with him. F*cking useless.

Re: Indonesians taking control.

I'm in the same boat as Dr Bob, of being a natural cynic and wanting to know who these people are and what the plan is. I'm a little more relaxed than I might be, simply because these people (or their fixers) have been close to the club for the last few years when we've been well-run under challengi...

Re: Cobblers

Rotating the squad and putting out a below-strength team to save key players for the next game is a gamble. If it pays off, it's shrewd management - if it doesn't then, well, we get threads like this. Personally, I don't blame Robbo for trying it - the squad must be knackered with such an intensive ...

Them 1 - 2 Us

Really? No comment at all on here the day after we secured yet another 21st Century victory against that lot from down the A420? Great to see Agyei score. Great to see Young Jack Stevens™ save another peno. Great to see it mean so much to the players. Great to see us looking nicely-placed for a play...

Re: Where are they now?

Interesting article today in the South Wales Echo about Gavin Whyte and his rediscovery of form since going on loan to Hull City. Both the Hull manager and the previous Cardiff City manager apparently felt Whyte had a tendency to operate too deeply and defensively, which I don't think was ever a pro...

Re: Where are they now?

No doubt most people will have seen the news, but former Oxford legend and all-round good bloke Mickey Lewis has passed away after a short illness.

RIP, Mad Dog.

Re: Ox Files

My other thought was the Appleton team that got promoted out of league 2 was incredibly strong for that division, I'd argue that team is better than the one we have now (certainly a number of that team are playing at a higher level). I'm surprised, looking back, that we only finished 3rd. I guess t...

Re: What a difference a day makes

What a difference a day, and then another hour, and then a 40-minute fire delay(!) make! Given all that has gone on since Friday lunchtime, that ended up being a big game to win - especially after going behind - and should mean our mojo is well and truly restored after that blip against Donny. Start...

Re: What a difference a day makes

I think it's a good idea to give the game as much chance as possible to go ahead this weekend with both teams prepared for it. Quite apart from anything else, postponements mean that there are fewer and fewer Tuesday nights available later in the season so trying to reduce congestion where we can is...

Re: Where are they now?

My local rag will report tomorrow that former U (and willy-waver) Gavin Whyte will take a loan move to Hull City after struggling to get into the Cardiff City side since Neil Harris took over from Neil Warnock.
