Re: OUFC Women

Presumably you would prefer to see amateur teams playing fully professional teams under a mis-guided interpretation of pyramid structure. Yes! If those professional teams are good enough to beat the semi-pro teams (there are no 'amateur' teams in the WSL) then they can earn promotion. This is not a...

Re: OUFC Women

All WSL clubs were given the opportunity to join the new structure before any outside clubs were even able to apply to join, and all clubs that met the requirements of professional standards for the new structure, were guaranteed their place. So no franchising at the expense of anyone. The issue fo...

Re: Who do you want next?

Fascinating to see the difference today between Derby County fans, who are generally optimistic about the prospect of getting Lampard as a manager, and the slightly sniffier thoughts of a lot of Oxford fans above.

Re: OUFC Women

The FA have turned the women's game into a franchise operation, for one year, to let a couple of "big clubs" that have up to now not supported the WSL, buy their way into the top divisions. Next year, of course, the plan is to revert to the pyramid structure, pulling up the drawbridge. It absolutely...

A point versus ‘Dale and we’re guaranteed safety.

I am pleased that we go into the game where we have to be proactive - we must not sit back. Let’s have a go at them.
Job done, and with a bit of style too. Decent chance of a solid mid-table finish when all the shouting's done.

Re: Going Down??

Nah, we're safe. 53 points is more than enough - I suspect safety will be confirmed on Saturday whether we win, lose or draw against 'Dale

Also, Tiger is putting the club into debt rather than himself - to fund the purchase of the club! Isn't this basically what the Glazers did at Man Utd which pissed so many of their fans off?
Yes, although if you do it with a house it's called a 'mortgage' and I've heard they're quite popular....

Re: Who do you want next?

Whilst we've all been frothing at the mouth with speculation ( Lampard , Grayson , Unsworth , Bellamy ) Eales has finally broken in silence in today's Oxford Fail , saying he's in no great rush to appoint and that he's happy with Faz being in charge for the time being. That probably means an new ma...

Re: Who do you want next?

Big Jim is out of work!

I've always reckoned he could do a job for us - a ropey record at the top level doesn't mean he's not good enough for mid-table League One.

Re: Pep Booted

This article in the Oxford Mail sums the situation up nicely. What a good article! I can't blame Eales for keeping his mouth shut and keeping his distance from the club - he only ever gets asked if he's selling and when. Maybe a certain organisation should make more effort with the actual owner rat...

Re: Simon Eastwood

Given that he's been MotM in virtually every match this season, then this would be a complete disaster without a proven better replacement lined up.

It might be his agent being naughty in preparation for an increased wages bid...
