Re:

Personally - 5pm on Saturday 25 April. This has been a horrible season - sackings, points deductions, questionable red cards, dreadful injuries, racially aggravating comments and frustrating disappointments on the pitch at any number of godforsaken tinpot outposts of the Conference. This, by the wa...

No goals

Nobody watches

Nothing happens unexpected or otherwise

Re:

So finally he accepts that Mick Brown has done thousands of things right during the decades leading to a single mistake, if indeed he has made a mistake. Not sure I counted "thousands" - ain't you an accountant? Twenty seven years of service to OUFC, about 10-30 things to do every day = abo...

Great stuff but, ah, don't in fact nearly all club secretaries manage to do this? So finally he accepts that Mick Brown has done thousands of things right during the decades leading to a single mistake, if indeed he has made a mistake. Not sure I counted "thousands" - ain't you an accountant?

Re:

One mistake versus thousands of good decisions and actions. Thousands? Go on, list a few hundred for us then. Perhaps I can help out here. How about for starters so far this season the correct registrations of: ....with an organisation like the Conference this in itself would appear to be a massive...

Re:

While you chaps carry on....here is what I think I know, along with what we might reasonably infer, from what has been made public. The tone of comments from the club suggests to me they are absolutely clear they did what they had to and were not in the wrong. The deduction of 5, rather than 11, po...

Re:

Which word didn't you understand? It is in English. And we take it from your own words. Well, not "dis-regard" you didn't, which isn't really English, but the point is: what are you actually claiming is the basis for my failing to rate Brown as highly as you do? The word "personal" ...

Re:

So unless I spend the next 4 hours typing up a list for you because you can't be bothered to think straight, that means what I've said is untrue. You chose to make the claim, not me. If you think it stands up of its own accord then by all means let it stand: but I think "thousands of good decis...

Don't be an arsehole. I've suggested that somebody in a position of responsibility should offer their resignation where they make a serious and damaging error. That's perfectly normal. It's called "accountability". It rarely applies at Oxford United, but it should do. Your personal remarks a...

Re:

Because "normal custom and practice and precedent" is going to end up in every club calling up before every game to ensure that every player is registered. Just to be safe. Well, no it isn't, because it doesn't. And nor would they have reason to do so, unless (as per my comments about relat...

Re:

And as others have said. The 5 point decision is ridiculous, apparently it's only the games he started, but given that he actually scored in the Eastbourne game when he came on as sub (and wasn't it the decisive 4th goal to put us 4-3 up?) then it shows the decision to be exactly what it is, an ill...

Re:

I'm always suspicious of the term "until common sense prevails", it too often tends to mean "we want there to be rules, but in our particular case we would like them not to be applied". I wasn't suggesting special treatment for us, for "common sense prevails" read "a wor...
