Re: Sent to Coventry

Yes trains from Oxford were packed - with a certain type of fan, including some faces I haven't seen for several years. I thought the atmosphere might not be as 'family' as the club were hoping, but as Slappy says the policing and stewarding was all very sensible, and if there was any trouble I didn...

Sent to Coventry

Very decent performance on Saturday. After ten minutes I was worried that Coventry were going to murder us but we sorted ourselves out, they ran out of ideas and we ended up dominating long periods of the game. No one played badly for Us, and the most impressive aspect was the fight we showed as the...

Re: Chaos

Dunno what it was like in the stadium - it was torture listening on RadOx trying to work out what was going on! Mackie's finish must have been something pretty special to witness - those moments are what make football so special. Massive, massive goal too - one that might well relegate Bradford, jus...

Re: What a let down

Just listened to yesterday's 5 minute fans forum on Rad Ox . I thought Robinson's comments about the system we play were reasonably coherent. The really interesting snippet was about next season's budget: Q. Will next season's budget be the same as this year, will it be better or worse? KR [long pau...

Re: What a let down

Sadly I just can't see him going even if we get relegated. Frankly, unless we win the next 8 games in a row then he deserves to go at the end of the season. And even then he would have underachieved. I don't think Tiger (or Erik) are here to see us bumble about at the foot of D3 (let alone D4), so ...

Re: Why are the bookies so confident...

... in our ability to stay up? Yes, we've won two on the trot, and I'm feeling a lot happier now, but we're still only two points off the drop zone, and extremely inconsistent ( and often poor against our direct rivals for relegation ). This is the bit that worries me most. Our next few games are v...

Re: You're winding me up!

Yep. I believe that he was trying to piggyback on the last HMRC petition but, as that didn't reach the Gazette, that wasn't allowed. The question is whether Kassam knew this and it was just a public shot across the bows, or whether it was a genuine attempt to serve a WUP. I suspect it was the forme...

Re: You're winding me up!

Isn’t the winding up order from Kassam due to be heard today? Yep. I believe that he was trying to piggyback on the last HMRC petition but, as that didn't reach the Gazette, that wasn't allowed. The question is whether Kassam knew this and it was just a public shot across the bows, or whether it wa...

Re: Blackpool

I wasn't there, Jerome, but RadOx concurred with your view that Sinclair and Garbutt were the outstanding performers. In other Blackpool FC news, a new board was put in place yesterday by the Receiver . This removed Owen Oyston from his position as Director, and put in place several 'high calibre' i...

Re: Which would you choose?

My view is that anyone wanting to do a proper project with OUFC needs at least £25 million spare to sort out the stadium and running the club. Or else they need to factor in losing anywhere from £1million to £2million a year. Eales had his exceptional two years of player sales and cup runs, but lef...

Re: Which would you choose?

I agree with much of what Ty says (though he’s too kind to Tiger, who has been shown to be an incompetent idiot from his first press conference). But the shortness of memory being shown to the Kassam era is astonishing. It was pretty unremittingly awful (bar a couple of months under Diaz). And Kassa...

Re: Sunderland

I thought we started a bit nervily, particularly the centre backs, and it wasn't a surprise when Sunderland scored from a corner, as we weren't dealing very well with them and they'd had quite a few already. However, by that point we should have been at least 2-0 up, as the chances that fell to Ruff...

In one of my other lives, I prowl a time trial cycling forum; one of its areas is a "Non-Cyling" area and in that area there is a "Brexit - What Now?" thread (normal threads deal with what's the best tyre pressure for a Continental GT 5000 tubular tyre with Stans anti-puncture, or how many watts sa...

Isn’t it time we found some satire in this? There's nothing like a good bit of satire. And your opening post was nothing like a good bit of etc. I concur with Tom's opening paragraph. Just because Brexit is going to fuck the country over (and it will), there's no need to revel in the misfortune of ...

Re: January Transfer Window

Sinclair has scored 1 (one) senior goal ever. Smith has never scored a league goal. So I wouldn’t say fears entirely allayed! Lots of potential obviously, but is that what we need at the moment? Pretty sure these weren’t Robbo’s first choices, and that’s not meant as a criticism - it’s notoriously h...
