Re: Robinson Out

Not sure that Obika fully deserves the abuse he's getting. He's not much cop, I definitely admit, but he's scored more league goals this season than our other two strikers combined. I'd suggest it's more the system at fault, ie one striker playing on his own isolated up front, than Obika per se. Oxb...

Re: Robinson Out

The cynic in me thinks he's trying to get himself sacked now. After all, why wouldn't you take a nice pay-off from a club anyone can see is teetering on the brink of the abyss. You might as well get the cash while you can. Two years' pay for working (assuming we manage to stay alive that long), or t...

Re: Robinson Out

I guess the longer that Mapp is out of work, the more chance he might come back to us. Other option: how about the Cowley bros at Lincoln who are performing miracles. But agree, I’ve had enough of Robinson. Although given that we bought him out of a contact at Charlton, (how they must have laughed) ...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

Am I being really stupid here? Surely it's cheaper for us to buy our current stadium and finish it, than pay ourselves out of what ever contract we're in, borrow someone else's ground and pay rent on that, whilst also buying land and build a new stadium elsewhere? It seems, with talk of a new train ...

Re: Thank goodness that's all over

I'm sure Deano three times missed one when he had two penalties in a match.

I'm going to say:

Definitely:
Luton cup 1-1
Wimbledon 2-5

Maybe Bristol City 2-4?

Donation to Shelter paid this morning.

Nice doing business with you. Bloody relieved we stayed up too.

Thank goodness that's all over

Congratulations to the players, management and staff for getting us out of a bit of a pickle. Definitely not a season I'll remember with too much fondness, but after two wonderful seasons preceding it, we were always going to have a damp squib at some point. At least it didn't end in the disaster it...

Ivo

The worst signing of all time in terms of value for money? He's taken Eddie Hutchinson's crown surely? OK, he's not actually given us a points deduction, but to rock up, get injured in the first training session, eat up medical bills, have a couple of friendly fixtures arranged for him, and then get...

Re: Going Down??

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).

Re: Going Down??

I remember Paul Powell being on penalties that year, on his way to 13 goals from left back.

Re: Going Down??

"Steve Anthrobus' goals (all four of them)." Incorrect. Despite promising 20, the Bus got two goals. And two the next season. My favourite YF cover joke: Steve Anthrobus blames Oxford Mail typo for unrealistic fan expectations. "I will score 20 goals for Us this season" "I will score 2.0 goals for U...

Re: Going Down??

The year we stayed up at Cardiff's expense, I think it's the fewest points a team has ever stayed up with. Another interesting fact: We drew 1-all with Cardiff at Ninian Park, and none other than Matt Murphy scored possibly the greatest goal anyone never remembers, infinitely better than the wonder ...

Re: Going Down??

I saw this coming in September. I sent a friend a text before the Pompey home win saying I thought we were in trouble this season. We had an odd-squad: Some good players who were part of a great team who'd seen their mates leave and probably fancied a bit of that themselves; a few duff signings from...

Re: Posh Result!

Funny thing is, when you like at that team, on paper or on grass, it's not bad at all. Certainly not relegation fodder. I think Henry has been woefully underused. Every time I've seen him play this year, he's been our most creative player (small sample admittedly). I'd like to know his goals per min...
