Re: No more Payne

I don't see the point of bankrolling and potentially bankrupting the club just to survive in the Championship. I would rather the club kept largely within its affordability, and if that means we bounce between the Championship and League 1, so be it. I think there are several aspects to this. 1 - t...

Re: Stadium matters

If Kassam had wanted to do right by OUFC, he didn't have to extract the profits of The Manor and he has had 17 years during which time he could have sold the stadium to a community group. His latest statement is highly contradictory. On the one hand he says he won't do anything unless it is in the i...

No more Payne

Recalled by Huddersfield apparently.

Talented player, but Pep clearly didn't want to play him in behind a front 2, and none of our strikers are good enough to play the lone front man role.

Re: New signings

Also linked with Man City youngster Buckley-Ricketts, on a loan deal:- http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2018/01/11/por-city-starlet-buckley-ricketts-set-for-oxford-loan/ Now confirmed . Sounds like a very welcome and much-needed injection of pace into the squad. My one question would be whether he'll be s...

Re: Stadium matters

This just confirms to me what I already thought. Bob Price is badly out of his depth and doesn't understand commercial negotiations. Price has had plenty of opportunities over the years to help OUFC, but has singularly failed to do so, to the point of obstruction of the development of the club in my...

Re: Blackpool - a few questions

Doing our own side down is a typical trait of Oxford fans, and probably the wider football supporter base. Eastwood was clearly MoM. As usual, the sponsors, possibly not knowing who is who, just voted for the goal scorer. I felt both sides were poor in all areas, although we have improved at the bac...

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 relegati...

Re: The longest pier you'll ever see

Following on from Ty's comments about Thomas, I think things would be improved if we played Obika alongside Thomas, so if we have to, or want to, occasionally play the long ball for variation or for a quick counter, then the ball has a much better chance of sticking than coming straight back. Playin...

Re: Rovers Return

Tippy tappy around the edge of our own penalty area for ages until the opponents close us down, we lose the ball in a dangerous area and look like conceding every time. Repeat at will. That's pretty much a summary of the game. Very similar to the first few weeks of MApp. The only player that earned ...

Re: Doom and Gloom

We have been very poor of late, but then we were excellent earlier in the season. These are simply the signs of a new manager implementing new ideas. This will be an up and down season for sure, as are most seasons, but even more so on change of manager. Add into that the injuries, which we've been ...

Takeover or an injection of cash. I would also be interested in why OxVox are still pursuing a deal with Kassam on the stadium when it seems blatantly obvious that it will never happen and they are just acting as a shield for Kassam to dealing with Eales.
Well said that man.

Re: The Magic Of The FA Cup : Port Vale AWAY

I don't see this as anything other than a poor draw.

We are expected to win, being the higher division side, so winning gains few plaudits.

Its a banana skin tie.

Its away on a Friday night necessitating a drive on some of Britain's worst roads in rush hour.

I shall be glued to the radio though.

Eastenders

Good game to watch for the neutral last night. Plenty of high quality football from both sides. Charlton started each half much better than us, and we ended each half much better than them. Their strike force was woeful though and had they put away their chances, they could have been out of sight we...
