Re: Wirral Oxford

One of the important aspects of Saturday's game - which was picked up on after the match on RadOx - was Fosu's tracking back and defending. On a number of occasions I noticed him break up threatening looking attacks like that. We cannot rely only on the 'defenders' to defend - that was a much improv...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

So KR is looking at free agents to bring into cover Hanson's injury: https://www.banburycake.co.uk/sport/17899299.oxford-united-looking-free-agents-cover-jamie-hanson-injury/ Is this because he does not think our current midfielders who are not first choice are good enough? Or does he want additiona...

Re: Bolton Bury'd

The solution would have been to prevent Bolton from signing new players for the season. Not sure what sort of a solution that is. With no other players coming in, you would be condemning a small group of mainly kids to getting stuffed most weeks. Not sure how practical it would be, but a 'better' o...

Re: Coventry harder

That was my first game of the season, having so far merely followed from afar, as best I could, via the matchday threads on the other place. On that somewhat limited evidence base, that game seemed to sum up the best and worst of our seas.on to date. Lots of possession, some great passing moves but ...

Re: Where are they now?

Dean Saunders has been jailed after he admitted failing to comply with a roadside breath test and failing to provide a breath sample for analysis. The 55-year-old was stopped on suspicion of drink-driving by police in Boughton, Chester, on 10th May. He pleaded guilty by letter on Tuesday and was se...

Re: More Grizzle at Rovers

Hmm. If I'm going to be on an uncovered terrace I'd rather it's behind the goal with no pillars than stuck in a corner with various fences and dugouts obscuring my view. So I'm rejecting Macc and Accy* outright. In fact I'd say the away end at Sw*nd*n is worse than both anyway. Gillingham is clearl...

Re: Bolton

For me the main problem is simple - the FA and EFL or whoever it was should never have accepted the basis they gave for being able to fulfil their fixtures this season. It came down, as I understand it, to the sale of the hotel next to the stadium (still not completed, I believe), in a move that bot...

Re: RadOx phone in

Absolutely KE. Platitudes drive me nuts. They are, by definition, empty and meaningless and have negative value added. I also agree with you on not underselling - I was just expressing the hope that subsequent add-ons might offset any up-front underselling. After all, I am still in my happy optimist...

Just heard strong rumours coming out of Derby that George Thorne (defensive midfielder) is on his way.

Re: Where will we finish 2019/20?

We shall finish 10th. We shall lack the firepower to finish higher, but our defensive midfielders and centre-backs will improve on goals-against. We shall hear about tangible progress on a new stadium, but this will only relate to progress in identifying a site within the overall planning process. N...

Re: RadOx phone in

I too am a Natural Born Cynic, but here goes an attempt to find the positives in some of KEs concerns. My positivity usually lasts until about 3.45pm on the first day of the season, so whilst it is still there: I reckon that land deals and planning discussions take an awful long time, after which th...

Re: Where are they now?

And Sam Slocombe has just signed for Notts County:

At least Notts now have new owners, unlike Bury and Bolton. But they have now taken down the big sign saying 'World's Oldest Football League Club'.

Re: Why?te

Since his goal scoring prowess saw him leave Grimsby for Wigan, then move on to Cardiff, he has bounced around on loan, without ever really sparkling again. If he does come as part of the deal, then I am crossing my fingers that this is one of those "chance to resurrect his career" type moves. If no...
