Re: Sunderland

So, a bit like pro-hard Brexit supporters, who believe the country can surge forward, freed from the EUs shackles, because we are Great Britain and we can have our cake and eat it... There you go, fits my description perfectly... I'm only surprised you didn't mention the side of a bus, racism, and ...

Re: Sunderland

who thinks that development of the brand in Asia would be easy because the city is world famous. Setting targets like that in public is just setting up the club to fail.

Re: Sunderland

I'm not going to continue the Brexit element on here as so much predictionist rubbish is spouted about what "will" happen post 29 March and I can see tiny elements already creeping into comments on this thread. It seems almost impossible to have a grown up discussion anywhere on the subject of Brexi...

Re: Sunderland

OY - that's fair enough, but I think recordmeister's point (and he'll doubtless correct me if I'm misrepresenting it) was that those who voted for Brexit and find that there are reduced employment prospects in their region as a result will be reaping what they have sown. My point is that there are ...

Re: Sunderland

I know it's only intended to be a bit of humorous banter, but I find some of the above comments a bit distasteful, not to mention inaccurate. The Qashqai development is being moved to Japan primarily because of lack of desire for diesel vehicles in Europe, but popularity in Asia. No one is losing jo...

Re: January Transfer Window

That's a very big step up from Jonte Smith, who at 24 should probably have made it by now with his scoring record. I wonder why he hasn't previously been snapped up at least by a Conference club. Good luck to the lad, and he clearly knows where the goal is, but it remains to be seen if he'll have th...

Re: January Transfer Window

Gobbo said that the player he was going for would be the highest paid player ever at Oxford. That Tiger has gone all out with the money to bring in a striker. If that is Jerome Sinclair on loan from Watford, OUFC recruitment department all need firing. After moving from Liverpool to Watford nearly 3...

Re: January Transfer Window

I've no idea how accurate this is, but when quizzed by a fan directly after the Brentford FA Cup game, Robinson apparently said only a couple of players were "his" signings. He strikes me as a bit like Wilder who loved his loan signings of experienced players or decent players with a bit of an inju...

Re: You're winding me up!

Its not just case of the club having working capital, if it were that simple, a well run club would say it needs for instance a million in cash at the start of January each year, and then would have sufficient cash to pay bills as they arise, even allowing for factors such as Football League solida...

Re: You're winding me up!

Of course a business plan isn’t as simple as a post on a football forum; goodness knows what’s in Tigers plans long term and how he plans to add value to this investment. But a new stadium near, say, the new Oxford Parkway railway station would be a winner for additional development in and around t...

Re: Spotafan Trophy / #BTeamBoycott

How much is £10 x 101 supporters, divided by 14 players? Its a gesture only and I doubt it would have been offered had we been trounced in the same way at home in front of 10,000 supporters.

Re: You're winding me up!

It's all about cashflow and a club that loses money every year unless there are significant cup runs or player sales. OK saying you pay someone £30,000, and perhaps it's £20,000 net and £10,000 to the taxman a month later. But if there is only £20,000 cash to start with, the player gets paid, and t...

Re: You're winding me up!

I don’t think it’s in FK’s interests to sell to anyone. The land the stadium is on is ripe for housing; nothing would give him more pleasure than to see us move home and break the covenant on the ground, so he can petition to build housing there. We end up with a new ground towit Tiger owns. He sel...

Re: You're winding me up!

Nice to see that Tiger cleared up all the uncertainty in his interview with RadOx. So he agreed a payment schedule with HMRC that we adhered to, why then did they issue a notice or was the payment schedule not in line with HMRC's requirements? When asked if he would bring in a fighting fund to miti...
