Re: Suffolking improvement?

Dull performance, dull game, but a point that keeps us in the mix. Digging up the question of the run of victories being against teams outside of the top-however-many-you-choose-to-make-your-point, the only way that run would continue against the best teams in the division would be if we were way ah...

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

Dexter Blackstock is in trouble - again - over his business dealings.

Re: What a difference a day makes

Absolutely, KE! To come back as we did from a goal down, having really struggled to get going against a side that pressed very well and on a pitch that did not help our style of play, was powerful sign of resilience.

What a difference a day makes

So, the game against Wigan has been postponed for 24 hours. Do those of you around Oxford reckon that the extra 24 hours will give the pitch time to defrost and be playable? If the temperature there now and as forecast for the next 36 hours is anything like Nottingham, I find it hard to believe. Is ...

Re: Don & Dusted

Great finishes from the new boys last night, and it's better to win a scrappy game than not win it. My god was that scrappy though. For once, it was our quality finishing that made the difference, as we buried two of our three great chances, while Rovers missed all of theirs. I'm glad our new loan ...

Re: Don & Dusted

Honestly, I agree with pretty much everything KY says, but I agree with Dan on several points as well. Henry's passing fluctuated between disappointing and woeful. Kelly was awful. Gorrin was seriously off-colour. Barker has serious pace (when he is not failing with fancy flicks) and I thought in th...

Re: NINE (count 'em) in a row

"It goes without saying"? Really KY. I disagree totally - it does need saying, and celebrating. As for the other issue, regardless of whether or not Tinpot Trophy games count - or are counted by individuals to suit their preferred narratives, we have either equalled or broken the club's all time rec...

Re: NINE (count 'em) in a row

I mean if you start a run when so far down in the league, you have to beat teams above you. When we started the run, more than half the teams we have beaten in the league were above us. That shows we should have no fear going forward. Let’s not forget that we went into November (November!) bottom (...

NINE (count 'em) in a row

Starved of live footie, this year I have even taken to watching the tinpot trophy games online. As the RadOx commentators said, with a starting line-up that included six who would probably not currently be in a first-choice 11 - and we still went 3-0 up and saw the game out comfortably. OK, so Hanso...

Isn't it too late for McNally to go out on loan now? Surely that's what yesterday's deadline was about
OOPS! Of course, we signed Atkinson but then sent him back out on loan from whence he came, as part of the one deal. :oops:

Re: January window

I agree Ty - very good business. We have defensive cover from Grayson, and I wonder if McNally might now go out on loan, as Atkinson did last year. We have the winger (hopefully 'pacy'). After Obita's departure, KR said he was looking for two wingers - can Lee play out wide? But I get the impression...

Re: January window

Agree about Obita. His performances and impact have, at best, levelled off. Hearing about his personal circumstances, his move makes sense all ways round. Interesting listening to the post-match discussion yesterday and speculation around the perceived failures of Winnall since his move. Would Grigg...

Re: 7 in a row

For once, tabloid headlines like "seven goal thriller" and "bonkers match" are absolutely spot on. It is a while since I have been so fidgety with nervous energy watching a match, given how it kept swinging back and forth. All of our goals were again really good - but the collective defending was fo...
