Re: Man City

We're one game away from a semi final - we do a Wigan and try our best to beat them. CB interview on YP is worth a watch he is def up for it.

Mackie has scored against the new City, hope he can do it again.

Re: Taming by the Shrews

Ricketts clearly was a massive atkins fan, the most depressing anti football team I have seen for a long long time. Why? - goalkeeper took at least 20 seconds over every kick - too many niggly nothing fouls to mention - everytime they did one of the above they kicked the ball away 20 yards - never h...

Re: Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

Interesting how sometimes people can see different things in a game. I thought Henry was brilliant - my motm, worked hard, closed things down, never gave the ball away, scored one and then set up Taylor with a lovely skilful run. I think a lot of what he does is unnoticed because people only tend to...

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

Hmmmmmm I think you'll find that anyone who isn't a Rob Duffy fan will argue that a penalty isn't a proper goal. 2 points to KY, minus 5 for RR for suggesting that Paraguay goalie played for us. The others were Steve Hardwick who (at least according to this site http://www.goalkeepersaredifferent.co...

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

Wasn't it Blackpool? No idea who the other keeper who scored against us was. Speaking of goalscoring keepers I believe we have had 4 not already mentioned who have scored goals (albeit not for us). One is easy to get, one scored 8 goals over the course of his career, one was probably our most famous...

Re: Play up Pompey

Didn't you know leagues don't count until at least 10 games in! And RR - we can manage as it is, but even this season we will be turning down away fans who want to attend our ground. A small stand for 2000 behind the goal would cover most away fans, allow us to sell more in North Stand if needed, bu...

Re: Play up Pompey

Questions for stattoes: when were we last this high in the league and what happened after (obviously we went lower). Would suggest it was 1995/96 and in fact we didn't go lower we ended up going even higher, up to 2nd at the end of the season clinching promotion to what is now the championship. As ...

Re: Cup draw

I agree with much of that, I thought we were lucky to get through, watching the highlights confirmed how much better their chances were. I was impressed by how the full backs pushed on although it was noticeable that Sunderland were often putting the ball into the space behind them in the hope of st...

Re: Wirral Oxford

Agree last night was poor. I don't think our formation does us any favours. Seemed to be 4-1-3-1 which meant lots of space on the wings for them to attack which they did at will in the first half. Robinson claimed we were 4-4-2 in the first half - didn't see that at all as Woodburn was rarely on the...

Re: Ched Evans

If Oxford only signed footballers of decent morale standing we would struggle to get a team out every week. He has played for 3 teams since the incident - I find it a little bizarre that Oxford are expected to somehow act as jury and judge - if the courts deem that he's free to carry on earning a li...

Re: Chris Wilder

To be fair to IL and as seen in the very defensive nature of the press release confirming that Wilder was staying on as manager I think he was just reacting to complaints from our fans that it was time for Wilder to go. What it meant was that Wilder had no guarantees in Jan that he would have a cont...
