Re: Cup draw

Pretty pleased with a home draw again, but I would have taken ManUre, ManShitty, Colchester, or Leicester away for the new ground opportunity. At this stage, realistically, almost anything is a bonus. In terms of the Sunderland match, Robbo made quite a few changes for players who had not played reg...

Re: Hammer Time

Second half v WHU will take some beating in terms of quality of our play.

The Rushden game was far more important of course.

In terms of fun, any game beating Swinedown is always up there.

Re: Hammer Time

And that was not even our first choice XI.

Simply stunning display.

This, like those matches in the early and mid eighties, will last a long time in the memory.

Legendary.

Re: Wirral Oxford

It’s Bolton’s first home game of any significance since their rescue and takeover. 9,000 fans turned up for a tinpot trophy game a couple of weeks ago. The place will be rocking tonight. On top of that Keith Hill is a decent manager. He will have been stung by saturday’s result and be making damn s...

Re: Wirral Oxford

You might have thought I should have known better after all these years. That was one of the worst performances i’ve Seen from OUFC. The only Oxford player who did their job properly, was Simon Eastwood. Bolt-on wanted it more, though they relied on fast breakaways using 2 very quick players against...

Re: Wirral Oxford

It was good to get a win against Tranmere and keep a clean sheet. Too many games going behind and needing to score more than two goals this season or conceding more than two goals. Good luck for this evening anyone going. I might try the £10 watch-at-home option. This is my only new ground in the L...

Re: Wirral Oxford

I think there is too much downplaying of Tranmere. They weren't great, but they weren't appalling either. Like many teams in this division, they lack a cutting edge, or a special player to make something different happen. We are still looking a bit disjointed, but with so many players returning fro...

Re: Bolton Bury'd

I was thinking about the whole of football finance and how you stop clubs getting into financial difficulties in the first place. I don't think increasing the share of EPL money in general would help, however how about? Absolute salary cap by division eg £5M in L1, £2M in L2. No sale of land and bu...

Re: Bolton Bury'd

The solution would have been to prevent Bolton from signing new players for the season. Not sure what sort of a solution that is. With no other players coming in, you would be condemning a small group of mainly kids to getting stuffed most weeks. Not sure how practical it would be, but a 'better' o...

Re: Bolton Bury'd

Those first five games are bringing up some discussion at the top of the table. Ipswich have been gifted a +5 on goal difference for their win vs Bolton, which could be crucial at the end of the season. I'm not sure there's much anyone can do about it though. Also Football Ventures (Whites) Limited...

Another winger joins the ranks. Ossouma Zamouri. The chants will be predictable.

Re: Where are they now?

Dean Saunders has been jailed after he admitted failing to comply with a roadside breath test and failing to provide a breath sample for analysis. The 55-year-old was stopped on suspicion of drink-driving by police in Boughton, Chester, on 10th May. He pleaded guilty by letter on Tuesday and was se...

Re: Bolton Bury'd

So Bury buried but Bolton not buried. In the run up to our match at Bolton it will be interesting to see who they sign and what squad they assemble. We might play them before they are all match fit and gelled but with another points deduction to come for cancelling the Donny match (?) they could ha...
