Re: What a let down

I'm not sure why fans get wound up by what a manager says or doesn't say - it seems to me that there hasn't been a manager, save Mapp (except the very start of his time with us) when manager comments haven't wound the fans up. Just ignore it. It's like player interviews - 90% of the time it's like t...

Re: Which would you choose?

. The debt is that of the club, not of the shareholders. That's why companies are called limited. It means limited liability of the shareholders to the amount they have invested in the shares. The fact that someone bought a majority shareholding from the previous majority shareholder has nothing to...

Re: Which would you choose?

The current winding-up petition relates to a previous owner's debts to the stadium company, which themselves resulted from the compounding of inherited debt. .

Re: Which would you choose?

It does also make it a lot more certain that Tiger's plans involve some sort of stadium and land deal. As someone else said, the club does seem to be doing well supporting the U-23s and U-18s teams, we are signing players like Sykes with potential to sell on, which you wouldn't necessarily bother w...

Boycott the Blackpool match?

It looks like ticket revenues from this fixture will go to the soon-to-be former owners, and the fans' group is maintaining their boycott of home matches on Saturday for that reason. I was considering going to this, but I'm minded not too: fans need to stick together when it comes to taking on unscr...

Re: Sunderland

And if you're looking for a destroyed car industry, have a look around you on Saturday afternoon. That happened while we were in the EU, and the East side of Oxford have suffered ever since, compounded by austerity. I'm not saying it was the EU's 'fault', but it happened in the context of EU member...

Re: Sunderland

I voted remain, but I absolutely detest the kind of class bigotry on display here. Those that think we'll reverse Brexit on the back of more working class suffering in places like Sunderland, completely misunderstand the complex politics behind Brexit. Places like Sunderland have been completely lef...

Re: Bees sting

And now it's back to the serious business of staying in League One. Maybe it's a good thing that our next fixtures look tricky, given that we seem to raise our game for the better sides (Barnsley away notwithstanding). We certainly need to get out of the losing habit... No - it's back to the stupid...

Re: When do we start panicking?

Before panicking, let's look at the facts. Before the season began, the majority of us felt that given the late change in manager, and loss of several of our best players to keep Eales' bank manager happy, mid-table obscurity was what we should expect - provided we did not get sucked into a relegat...

Re: Spotafan Trophy 2017-18 / #BTeamBoycott

I've been intending to boycott any thread about the Trophy this year, but can't help chuckle at the predicament we find ourselves in this evening - a win will be met with angry howls of 'why couldn't we beat Vale instead?' and another loss will get an even worse reaction! A meaningless penalty shoo...

Re: Football League Trophy

I reckon the FA cup took more out of them, and we nearly got to play Man City at home. Presumably you'd have been interested in that? Yes, absolutely. But then I've got no problem with the FA cup. In fact, it's just the sort of undermining of the lower league represented by the B teams' appearances...

Re: Football League Trophy

I agree that me boycotting the final will have very little impact. But if, as I fear it may, this 'experiment' continues into another season (then another, and another), then it is even more important for individuals to hold their ground on this now, as any attempts to repeat a boycott next season w...

Re: Football League Trophy

The boycott stands until B teams are removed from the competition. Good luck to OUFC at Wembley, and well done for getting there, but I'll feel no great sense of excitement for us winning a completely devalued competition in front of a bunch of fans who lack the gumption or discipline to see through...
