Re: Bolton

I don't really buy the argument that it's unfair if some clubs gain an advantage from facing a weakened Bolton team. It's up to Bolton what side they put out, and teams' fortunes can fluctuate wildly over the course of a season with new signings and injuries. The transfer window hasn't even closed y...

Re: Burton...

First game I've seen this season too, albeit on a very small screen. The good moments were very good - some lovely quick passing and vision, so I can see what people have been raving about in that respect. But the bad bits were awful. Yes, Burton were focussed and direct, but we pretty much ushered ...

Re: Ticket Master.....Hopeless!

I'm about to try and renew the various memberships online now. Let's see how that goes... Well there was no renewal option, but I bought new memberships and allocated them to the relevant accounts painlessly enough. Picked up some Bristol Rovers tickets too - was surprised to find seat tickets stil...

Re: Ticket Master.....Hopeless!

I do know the club had an issue with the new membership system which has not been resolved by Ticketmaster. Basically, if you want to book an Adult and Child seat next to each other online in the Family Stand, you can - but you can't do it with an Adult Member and an Ox4Life Child Member because Ti...

Re: Where are they now?

Chris Wilder wants a clear out at Sheffield United. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/08/13/chris-wilder-tells-sheffield-uniteds-dead-wood-put-careers-money/ players mentioned include Samir Carruthers, Ricky Holmes and Jake Wright. Not surprising really as some of these have come from Leagu...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

What we have done may be permissible, but it's pretty grubby to deny Motherwell a fee when they've earned one. I think you're jumping to conclusions here somewhat. About a month ago KR said that Motherwell had accepted our bid (compensation valuation), but we were waiting for the player to make up ...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

So Cadden has signed. Motherwell fans aren’t happy: https://therealefl.co.uk/2019/07/24/absolutely-disgusting-plenty-of-fans-react-as-oxford-unveil-scotland-international/ If it’s true that this whole Columbus Crew ruse was to stop us paying a proper development fee then that’s pretty poor. I guess ...

Re: Ched Evans

The courts are not a moral arbiter as someone suggested. I didn’t quite say that (though I understand your point). I asked who should be a moral arbiter if not the courts? I’m in no way defending Ched Evans’ character, and I understand why people don’t want Us to sign him. I’m just not sure that sh...

Re: Ched Evans

Someone doesn't have to be a convict to be the sort of person you'd really rather not have around. (Especially if one is serious about wanting to attract more women into football.) That’s as maybe, but who is to be the moral arbiter if not the courts? And given that the courts are the arbiter, and ...

Re: Ched Evans

As usual in cases like this there’s a moral maze to be navigated when considering Evans’ potential signing. At the end of a lengthy legal process he has been found not guilty. And indeed he had already served his entire sentence for the original conviction anyway. So I don’t see any argument that he...

Genuine question - what would the rules be wrt Didcot or Bicester for OUFC - would this be allowed under the current regulations?
I bloody hope not!

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

Abingdon would be a truly shit place for a ground. No train, awful traffic on the A34 and very much its own town rather than part of Oxford. Kidlington I could live with, assuming it was at the south end near the railway line. But the more I think about it, there are very few likely sites in and aro...

Re: OUFC's weirdest ever tweet

Though in a couple of weeks we may get another tweet congratulating the official results of the Indonesian elections, where Bakrie was part of the winning campaign team? I thought that was Thohir. Or were they both involved? Anyway, I for one welcome our new Far Eastern overlords! In fact, I think ...
