Re: New signings

Why mention 'players that may want to leave' then? It's an odd thing to talk about if the message isn't aimed at them, surely?

Unless it's aimed at Tiger of course - pay for Carruthers or there might be others wanting away...

Re: New signings

KR wants to sign Samir Carruthers http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/sport/football/headlines/16238264.Oxford_United_boss_reveals_top_transfer_target/ Quite an unusual way to do transfer business, but I think the penultimate paragraph is the most telling: “I think players who may want to leave might look a...

Re: Retained list

Eastwood is a good keeper - the best we've had for a good number of years. But then you'd expect that as we're playing at our highest level for a good number of years. I'm pleased he's signed on for longer. Having said that, I'm not surprised he wasn't snapped up by someone else. He had a real dip i...

Blackburn

Well, that was fun and games! One of the best atmospheres I've known in a football ground. Fantastic turn out from the yellow army for a meaningless match. The early pitch invasion was obviously farcical, and the scenes between some of their drunker fans and our players were very disappointing. I wa...

Re: Going Down??

Nicely put on twitter here . That is a fake twitter account (or rather just a fan one, presumably). The real AFC Wimbledon one is here - and unsurprisingly uses their proper name in the twitter handle. People using that post as a stick to beat AFCW with (and there's plenty of them in the Other Plac...

Re: Retained list

So who does that leave that is still under contract? Eastwood Mousinho Dickie Ledson Ruffels Carroll Brannagan Henry Napa Obika Anyone else? What about Kelleher? I note he hasn't been mentioned in the same way that Raglan and Hemmings have. Speaking of which, I'd rather keep Wes Thomas than Kane Hem...

Re: Thank goodness that's all over

With Mousinho, perhaps a little depends on his influence on the dressing-room. I was impressed by how he took control of the penalty on Saturday. Given that Kane took one as well, I suspect this was more down to goal scoring bonuses, than any heroism. If you were in charge of goal-scoring bonuses, ...

Back to the 'Bus. I saw three of his four goals (Stoke, Brentford, Northampton), plus one in pre-season (Blythe). Anyone see all four (I missed Burnley away).
Me!

Re: Going Down??

"Steve Anthrobus' goals (all four of them)." Incorrect. Despite promising 20, the Bus got two goals. And two the next season. More proof that I’ve conflated those two years in my mind into one long relegation season. Did we really have to put up with two seasons of Anthrobus? Good grief. It was fun...

Re: Going Down??

Ian McGuckin, Lee Jarman, John Robertson, Manny Omoyinmi ... Parallels with Tiendalli, Van Kessel, Mehmeti, Piekalski ... Except that, as our back line, their shitness was rather more exposed! Funny, I'd completely forgotten the 99/00 season. I mean, I remember some of the notable events. The glori...

Re: Going Down??

As a matter of interest, when was the last time we were involved in relegation worries this close to the end of the season and survived? It seems like quite a novel experience! Was it that Tranmere game in 92?

Re: Going Down??

Well actually he's wrong. We could theoretically draw one of our games and still go down. And we won't be safe at 21.35 (or even 21.45) tonight whatever happens. As to the rest of it: b) Gillingham would have to take at least two points from their last two (they haven't won since March 10th, and hav...

Re: What constitutes acceptable?

A bit too much chicken-counting going on here for my liking. I can't think about reviewing the season quite yet. This prediction of mine was clearly wrong though! As to what is acceptable on the field, that depends how you define it. Sufficient not to sack the manager? Then avoiding relegation will ...

Re: Going Down??

Things will be a little clearer after tomorrow night, but I'd definitely like a point against Dale to feel safer. My first attempt at this predictor using pessimistic (but not completely unrealistic) results saw Fleetwood go down on 54 points! Unlikely of course, but stranger things have happened. I...
