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 ...

Re: Argyle trial

That was my first game for a while (whose idea was it to get a job that meant working on most Saturdays? :roll:) and I pretty much agree with everything KY said in his first post. The only thing I would add to his comments would be that Ricardinho was excellent when he came on and he should be back ...

Re: U's v Gills

I got to see half of the game on Saturday (how typical that all the goals came after I left); sitting in the SSL about half way between the halfway line and the East Stand, I can only concur about Ricardinho's quality. His awareness of what's going on around him, his ability to create and move into ...

Re: Cheltenham

When playing a 4-2-3-1 you need to have the left and right attacking midfielders maintain wide positions so the two defensive midfielders have more of an outlet than just the full backs or the 10. The full backs also need to be ready to support the wide midfielders. None of that happened last night ...
