Re: Where are they now?

Roofe is on fire!

Two ex OUFC managers quoted at length too.

Re: Coventry Blues

And what was with Holmes? I didn't see yesterday's game, even on the telly, but I was surprised Holmes started in the pointless trophy on Tuesday when he was coming back from injury. Indeed we've kept a pretty settled line-up for much of the start of the season, which you'd usually think was a good...

Re: Wear not so bad

In summary, Oxford played like Stevenage; very clever football. For what it’s worth I didn’t think a lot of the fouls were fouls- we just did a brilliant job of managing the game very well. If I was a Home supporter I’d be furious with Oxford. Really? Are you sure you weren't being influenced by th...

Wear not so bad

Wow. I wasn’t expecting that performance. We absolutely ripped Sunderland apart for most of the match. What a game from Marcus Browne. They couldn’t live with him at all and resorted to such blatant foul play all match that it was a miracle they still had ten on the pitch at the end. Also a word for...

Re: Accy thump

Talk of Appleton is a stark reminder that new managers need time, and you shouldn't judge them by the first few games of a season - we didn't get a league win under Appleton until the eighth time of asking. Although the Barnsley and Fleetwood performances were truly appalling, it sounds like we're s...

Re: Tykes thumping

I've held off posting until now so I could calm down. But that was absolutely woeful. A dire, dire performance. Yes, Barnsley are a good team, but that doesn't excuse not competing, not showing for the ball, not appearing to give a shit. Fullbacks - very inauspicious starts to their OUFC careers. Fo...

Re: Stadium matters

Silver linings - well there aren't many. One though is that I understand we can renew the playing rights in 7 years time and so Kassam can't bulldozer the place. I think a little bulldozing might improve the place! It's all so predictably depressing. Usually the one thing that GY/OY and I agree on ...

Re: Where are they now?

Speaking of Torquay, some South West football news irrelevant to OUFC but in which some of you might be interested: Following the approval by Cornwall Council earlier this year of a new Stadium for Cornwall near Truro, which will host both Cornish Pirates rugby and Truro City FC, the latter are havi...

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

Hmm, both that article and the one by Pep Clotet on the same site read more like job applications than particularly honest soul-searching. Lots of talk of learning from mistakes without much owning up to them! The Pompey stuff was interesting, but nothing about why he left Blackpool for Blackburn af...

Re: New signings

This Sam Smith deal seems to be dragging on and on. As I understand it, Reading are (quite sensibly) waiting to confirm the signing of Sam Baldock before letting Sam Smith come to us. Yeah I get that, it's just a shame not to have players here for a bit of pre-season. Especially ones without much m...

Re: New signings

I take the point about over-promising, but there has to be a little leeway here and there. Tomorrow (Wednesday) I think we may see up to 3 new names at the club. Sam Smith (from Reading) Jamie Mackie (from QPR) Marcus Brown (from West Ham) Well the timescale was a bit out, but we have now seen two ...

Re: New signings

The Fail seems to be dating that story 16 July. Today is 17 July. Give KR a chance! It was online at 7am yesterday. I'm sure there was a similar story a couple of days before the squad flew to Ireland too. As KE says, we all understand that transfers take time these days (especially loans from PL/C...

Re: New signings

Cheers OY. I see that a player called Armani Little played (and scored a brace) against City. What is the world coming to? I also see that two attacking players did not join OUFC within 24 hours of KR saying this: http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/sport/16355880.karl-robinson-expects-two-attacking-players...
