Re: Season Over?

Just one thought on Gorrin and Brannagan - and how people criticise his passing (BTW I agree with everything else here). Gorrin cannot really play the spray passes like Brannagan - but his game has mostly been about breaking up attacks then passing to someone who can. Brannagan is not the disrupter ...

Re: Season Over?

For some time now, as matches have come and gone and a clearer sense of just how good we are has emerged, I have been wondering what our par league position is. I reckon it is between 8 and 10, give or take. And (hand on heart) I felt that before we went on that great run - a run, as we know, based ...

Re: Cobblers

You beat me to the punch. Absolute horror shows, both...although last night I thought some of our play was closer to Keystone Cops. For as long as KR has been with us, a common criticism has been that there is no Plan B. What worries me with these two games is that KR is telling us they are not gett...

Re: Indonesians taking control.

As a natural born cynic, I am always suspicious as to why issues around exactly who owns football clubs, with what shareholding, etc, are so often a matter of such incredibly tight confidentiality, up there with state secrets. But that seems to be the modus operandi nowadays. As for Thohir's Ministe...

Re: Shaking the ketchup bottle

I agree with much of what KY says, but I have to disagree with his comments about Taylor's goals. The first goal involved a sharp turn in a very tight spot and a tidy finish through the keeper's legs. The second was really well worked - the cross to the back post over a crowded box, great header bac...

Re: Them 1 - 2 Us

This was all about the result. Yes the pitch was a disgrace, over-watered and so much sand, but we lacked any real tempo to make the most of our possession in the first half against a demonstrably inferior team. I agree with KY that Stevens needs to calm down and be a bit more measured when coming f...

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: 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...
