Re: Talks

This is an interesting document from the City Council. It appears to be labelled as a concultation document but reads like a policy statement. As I read it only Kassam could possibly benefit. There is no mention of a commitment to building the fourth stand but it does mention filling in the corners...

Re: Talks

Given that OCC want houses built and FK the profit from them, I’ve no real idea why Firoka have not already slapped in a planning application just for the dwellings as there is nothing to stop them. The new road would just be part of the s106 agreement from the profits. The council have said that h...

Re: Sheep Shaggers

The Swans game was the only real ‘shock result’ of this year’s FA Cup competition!

Re: Sheep Shaggers

What a game of football. Swansea obviously fielded a side that was too weak, but that’s their fault for underestimating the U’s and not doing their homework properly. The fact that the Prem TV money alone rises from £3.02 billion this season to £5.14 billion next year, with a ‘six pointer’ on Wednes...

Re: Sheep Shaggers

It was not that long ago that the Swans were in more trouble than Oxford United were during the dark days of the late 90’s. The fans down there have not forgotten those times and still don’t see themselves as a big time club. I always hoped that OUFC would do the same, and still do - anything is pos...

Swansea appoint Alan Curtis until at least the end of the season.

Re: Sheep Shaggers

Don’t forget to buy the obligatory blow up plastic sheep to wave around. They would be such a novel sight at Swansea games.

Re: Trebles all round

When did Oxford United last have a decent Cup run?

Beat Swansea and/or a day out at Wembley would make up for the 20th successive year of not being promoted in the Football League.

Re: Managerial Merry-go-round

It’s still a very big mystery to me why Monk went. As for Miguel Pérez Cuesta, then after a Saturday game I used to go out for Sunday lunch with a friend to a pub called The Pumphouse overlooking Swansea Marina after a walk along the beach. We’d often see him in there drinking more beer than I’d usu...

The manager with the 10th best win % in the Prem since it started decades ago has just been sacked.

Re: Salford City and all that

“This suggests that TAG's company have borrowed $250k from the football club.”

No, it’s personally owed to Colin. I desperately hope he signed a legally secure loan document with TAG. He loves the club immensely and does most of the unpaid work at CPF.
