Re: Who do you want next?

Myles, go for it ... From what I’ve read, the necessary research is being lead by you, only to be shouted down. In times such as this, we need to be asking questions and demanding answers, ideally through a body such as OxVox. I don’t think it’s overly dramatic to say that the current shambles and u...

Re: Up The Manor

I also recall that very same place, Joel. Just to the left, about a third of the way up.

Re: centurians

100 goals, 8th & Wembley. No complaints. A little frustrating that home draws against Milwall and Southend would have seen us in the playoffs. I can't help but feel that this season might have been an opportunity missed. Looking at the teams coming up and down, next season will be tough, especially ...

We have hit 254 shots on target in league games this season, the most of any team in England.

Re: Football League Trophy

So much is wrong with the modern game, stolen from its roots for immoral purposes, run by an incompetent association. If I were to take a protest stance, I'd boycott football for keeps. It's lost itself. However, I support our team despite all the shite around it. For me, it still represents a part ...

Re: Whisper it...

McAleny was something else today. If he continues at anywhere near his current form, it really is game on. This small squad is beginning to look rather special and well worth enjoying while it lasts.

Re: Bramall Lane

Can Martin really be so shite that we are playing with a makeshift left centre half and left back in order to avoid playing him in his natural position? Did we let Mullins, and/or Wright, go in order to accommodate a player whom is already being regarded as not good enough? Or is he simply injured /...

Re: Bramall Lane

If only we had a player who could show much needed leadership, whilst also filling that gap in the left side of defence. Someone like that Wright bloke at Sheffield Utd.

Re: Dorking

Hog, was it iruzm?

When we left the Manor there was a wonderful thread of quick fire Manor memories. It was evocative and special. Such a shame that's been lost in the aether.

Dying a death? No, not at all, never! It's niche, has few but valid contributors, is the place for great discussion when necessary and has its roots in the original Mzuri (is that right?) site from the 90's We are the remaining stedfast survivors in this here ghost town.

Re: Where will we finish?

10th, which I've always felt is our expected rightful place, to oscillate around.

In fact, our average all time league position is 54th which would back up that assumption.

Re: O'Dowda

Fair point KY. I guess the risk of staying outweighed the opportunity it offered. On balance, clinically, maybe he's done the right thing. However, who would want to leave their boyhood club in this manner. One would hope that playing football is more honorable than jumping to the next improved cont...
