Re: Bapxit Day

I'm a big believer in square pegs for square holes and the lack of cover in defence is a major concern. I'm happy with Long at RB and I think his understanding with Sykes is worth persevering with, and I'm OK with Ruffs at LB although I do think the top half of division 3 is the absolute limit of hi...

Re: Cup draw

A great night where we rode our luck a bit against a powerful Sunderland side - who are clearly turning the corner under Parkinson - and prevailed with as pretty much a perfect execution of a penalty shoot out as you can get. As well as Mous's piledriver (Dave Fogg anyone?), you have to mention Fosu...

Ben Woodburn ... rn-injury/

Fractured metatarsal. Out for 12 weeks. Poor kid, wishing him a speedy recovery.

We're having absolutely no luck with impact injuries at the moment are we?

Re: George Thorne

Hard to judge someone on 19 minutes of football but some of his passing in that short time was utterly sublime. Really, really sorry for the bloke, and wish him a very speedy recovery.

Re: Hammer Time

Won't say too much about that game other than I'm still buzzing about it 24hrs later and I think it was probably the best cup performance since we dumped Newcastle - Kevin Keegan and all - out of the same competition in 1983 (and I was at that one too (Jerome)). Magnificent. How the hell do you drop...

Got banana skin written all over it. 1-0 Bolton.

It's what we do.

Re: Burton...

Agreed. Burton were a very good side on the night and were worthy winners. It's fair to say a few of ours were below par though (at least compared to previous performances this season). I think we may see Elliott Moore make his league debut on Saturday. We were back to the Mousinho error-strewn perf...

Re: Why?te

Not happy with this at all, bearing in mind the current parlous state of our squad.

Is it too much to hope that someone like Bogle coming the other way is part of the deal?

Grim season inbound, I fear.

Re: Robinson Out

Hope there's room for one more on the 'Robinson Out' bus - because I'm flagging it down after that fiasco. We'll be down by Christmas if this carries on. Simply no teamwork; no confidence; horrible, embarrassing timewasting at 1-1 (which got what it deserved); not recognising Shandon as a red card w...

Re: Wigan warblings

Interesting that Wigan's principal attacking tactic was a diagonal lump from Dunkley towards their inside left... and much of their frustration was borne of Rob Dickie winning virtually every resultant header (and Nels or Kane clearing up when he didn't). Last chance for me to see the boys before th...

Cautiously optimistic while retaining a healthy dollop of scepticism - doesn't that sum up what being an OUFC fan is all about?

Re: When do we start panicking?

In all honesty I'm not completely convinced by the 'keeping the backroom staff in place' approach. Chippy is an example in point; he was forced to work with Mickey Lewis at Oxford, and while he did alright with us, his performance has been considerably (I'd go so far as to say remarkably) better at ...
