Re: OxVox elections

I'm happy to explain myself. To be honest, I have never gone away. I stood down at the last AGM because I had spent so much time and effort in the previous years that I fancied a break. The truth being, I haven't had a break, having been asked to stay on during a transition period by Jeremy. Matt D ...

Re: The Six Pointer

It appears to me, our fans (or some of them) are guilty of buckling under the pressure, season after season. I think that's unfair, for two reasons: 1) There are two sides to every argument, and it's pretty clear that we've been less impressive in the last few weeks than we had been at points earli...

Re: The Six Pointer

And this idea we are defensively in disarray........ We have conceded 27 league goals, only Plymouth and Pompey can offer better, conceding 26 each. We have silly chatter about both our Goalkeepers in the process and how incapable they are moving forward. It appears to me, our fans (or some of them)...

Re: Could have been Wurzel

I think most were initially frustrated but it was a good point. Yeovil did themselves and their fans proud with some do or die defending, defending as if their football league status is on the line. Shame Oxford didn't play that way in relegated seasons gone by :P Their manager claimed we're the bes...

Re: Luton Town v OXFORD

Firstly football needs to be affordable, without question. Oxford United have done that, in spades, by their ticket offers this season, let alone scrapping the ridiculous on the day booking increase and online/telephone booking charges. So for home fans, I think the club has done reasonably well. Bu...

Re: Appleton hasn't got a clue

Oddly made a scapegoat for four, five at best, poor performances all around the time Appleton was under some real pressure in early January. It seems it has skewed people's views on him because honestly, he was one of our better performers this season, probably sat only behind Hylton, Roofe and Wrig...

Re: Adams Out!

Sustainability! My biggest worry with the current board is that they are spending way more than our attendances can justify, so far without any results, and that eventually the whole thing will implode. Lenagan over-spent too, of course, but he was learning from his mistakes (hence the emphasis on ...

Re: Adams Out!

Two/Three very good/outstanding performances since the beginning of February (Tranmere, Bury and Wycombe). Some vital wins when Appleton needed them and the pressure was being put on from above (Mansfield and Carlisle) - let's be fair both side were dog. A good away draw at Pompey in my book. After ...

Re: Adams Out!

Whilst my view on Appleton hasn't changed, it was an excellent day out. Beautiful weather, good company and a lot of Oxford fans. That was actually the best AWAY performance of the season. In the first half we were comfortable but didn't press too much other than an amazing Roofe burst, weave and sh...

Re: A load of Cobblers

My argument is we have good, even quality L2 players here already. Man-Management and tactics are Appleton's remit. I don't think the quality of the players is actually the big issue some want to make out. I don't disagree with you at all, but isn't the issue with the quantity of players rather tha...

Re: A load of Cobblers

I'm not saying that Appleton shouldn't shoulder some responsibility for our crap season, but I don't see that changing the head coach will necessarily change the way things are done at OUFC. The DNA runs a lot deeper than Appleton I reckon. I actually have a sneaking suspicion that ticket pricing w...
