Re: You're winding me up!

To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, one winding-up order might be regarded as carelessness, but two (in the space of six months) becomes a rather different kettle of fish. The first was blamed on the ownership transition (ie Eales didn't sort it out) but this one must be entirely of Tiger's own making. I kno...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

I did go to the fans forum and amongst some of the chaff, there were some nuggets of hope. - The realisation (albeit post-due diligence phase) that FK will not sell to them unless for megabucks is refreshing. It normally takes an owner 4 years to reach this conclusion and so Tiger has saved himself...

Re: So when exactly...

I don't remember Us ever losing from 3-0 up, though I do remember Us winning from 3-0 down: https://www.rageonline.co.uk/mainpage/fixture/1985-11-23/ That Torquay game is the only other time I remember Us giving away a 3 goal lead, though I might well be wrong. Wasn't that one of our Setanta games?...

Re: Gas

I see that the trouble last Saturday has caused the kick-off time of our home game on 29th December to be moved:

I'm very surprised there was only one arrest given the numbers involved in the clashes under the noses of police.

Good update from Matt Everett there. If only others at the club were so clear in the way they communicated with supporters!

Our poor start is still everyone else's fault but Robinson's:

The special edition anniversary kit doesn't have quite as many animals on - and we've made the national press for apparently passing off standard Puma teamware as a bespoke item: https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/football-league/oxford-united-accused-ripping-off-fans-75-anniversary-kit-8-...

Re: Gas

Two poor teams played out a very poor game of football. Not much more to say really. Sure, you'd normally take a draw away from home when you're struggling, and five points from three games (with no goals conceded) is a good turnaround from previous form. But we won't play many worse teams than Bris...

Re: Robinson Out

We have played a lot of the teams at the top of the division and now have a run of teams in and around us. If these are as comfortable as Plymouth was we should start climbing the table. This is key. I'm pretty sure the next few games won't be as comfortable as Saturday (when the worst team in the ...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

Well, now things are much clearer! https://www.oufc.co.uk/news/2018/october/statement/ I guess this is just a holding statement to try and deflect from the crap on the pitch. With the people who have recently become involved with the football club, I see no reason to be optimistic that we won't just...

Re: Not top

Taken in isolation, of course a draw at Roots Hall is always a reasonable result (I wasn't there so can't comment on the performance). But we can't really take any result in isolation now - we've left ourselves a lot of catching up to do and therefore need to over-perform for a bit to avoid getting ...

Re: Summer news

I'm not sure I agree. The 'three animals' look is a bit of a design car crash, in my view. But the main logo does look good. Not the most animals on a football shirt though apparently (even if they do think our lion is a dragon): https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/oct/03/which-football-shirt...

Re: Robinson Out

Cameron Norman being forced to train with the kids I believe you, but is there a source for this? Disgraceful if so (and if based on performance alone rather than attitude etc). He's been a bit inconsistent, but he was MoTM against Burton and has looked far better at RB than McMahon. I was wonderin...

Re: Robinson Out

In general I'm not in favour of getting rid of managers who either are doing an ok (if unimpressive) job or haven't been given enough time. I didn't want Wilder to go, and when he did our form got worse not better. I didn't want Clotet to go - and again our form got worse not better when he was sack...
