Re: Safety in numbers

Given the injuries we have had this season I think a top half finish would be above par, but recognise I may be alone in this view. I am rarely in the camp of sacking managers, especially ones which are showing marked improvements and ones which like playing passing attacking football. The fact he h...

Re: Sent to Coventry

I thought it was a classic away performance and a point would have been a fair result but to come away with all 3 was brilliant and looking at our corner count not undeserved. Nelson was my motm by a mile, dealt with everything at the back and then got the winning goal. Going to really miss him next...

Re: Chaos

Actually fair play to the officials here. The wording in the rulebook is at best ambiguous and as such I am not surprised they weren't 100% aware of what the rule was (depending on what they were checking - I assume not whether the ball had crossed the line as no point in consulting the other lino i...

Re: What a let down

I long gave up on our fans ability to assess the skills (or lack of) for a manager when a majority (including on this forum) were quite happy to see the back of Wilder - everything he has done since has shown this to be bonkers. Clotet had us about 3 points from the play offs last season and pretty...

Re: Why are the bookies so confident...

I'll be very surprised if we get relegated. We have a good enough team, injury woes seemingly behind us (we had a very strong bench on Sat) and a reasonable run of fixtures if we can't stay up then something will have gone badly wrong. With a couple of goals behind him, both good poachers goals whic...

Re: Which would you choose?

Perhaps if we were in a position in the table where our playing budget indicates it should be we would be less concerned about Tiger, especially given the investment in the U23 and a proper training ground. Kassam made it impossible for us to thrive by not investing in the team/youth set up and stru...

Re: Which would you choose?

Quite frankly I'm astonished that Kassam enjoys this level of support. His regime was a disaster on and off the pitch and continues to haunt us to this day. I was at the meeting when he said the leisure complex would support the club. Instead, none of the income the ground or surrounding areas (whic...

Re: Robinson Out

I thought it was interesting listening to the 5 minute ask our MD chat that he was asked about the ultras quitting and given it a load of flannel about how the club needed to improve the match day experience whilst presumably being fully aware they were going to make it impossible for the ultras to ...

Re: January Transfer Window

Anyone who heard Robbos 5 minute chat on Radio Oxford last night will have realised that despite attempts to hide it, he is very disappointed with how things turned out yesterday. He was clearly targeting a proven goal scorer at this level, saying Vaughan was top of his list throughout. The fact we ...

Re: Robinson Out

After a fantastic run the last three games have been hugely disappointing. I think an element of fatigue will be at play here - we have pretty much the same team every week for quite some time now and if you look at the bench there is not a lot of offer. Our injuries to our creative players have rea...

Re: January Transfer Window

Looks like Browne is off doesn't it which rather highlights the frustrations of the loan system. If they do well, they are recalled and sent elsewhere like Payne last year. If they don't do well we are stuck with a not good enough player with no incentive to improve them. I'd much rather we relied f...

Re: Pilgrims Progress

Much improved and built on the performance at Southend. Plymouth drew at Barnsley and beat Wombles in their last two games so were finding a bit of form - we didn't let them play and fully deserved the win. I watched it on i-follow given the international break - it struck me that as part of buying ...

Re: Robinson Out

Well I think I was quite supportive in my post and suggested the fault of where we are was the lack of a fit good striker. We saw on Sat what a difference one of those can make. Given that we missed out on at least one target in this area and Robinson wasn't allowed to sign Maynard (more goals in 4 ...
