Re: New signings

I take the point about over-promising, but there has to be a little leeway here and there.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) I think we may see up to 3 new names at the club.

Sam Smith (from Reading)
Jamie Mackie (from QPR)
Marcus Brown (from West Ham)

Re: New signings

The Fail seems to be dating that story 16 July. Today is 17 July. Give KR a chance!

Re: New signings

The performance at Court Place Farm was pretty good. Despite scoring a couple, Obika did miss some gilt edged chances. In particular he had 2 or 3 one on ones with the keeper and failed miserably with each one. Most players did well and we drove the game forwards in a manner that was pleasing on the...

Re: Retained list

I assume Ricardinho isn't coming back.

His details have been removed from the 1st team squad on the official site and he hasn't been on the Ireland trip.

Re: New signings

Its quality strikers that we need, not ageing full backs with no pace.

Disappointing to lose both Ledson and Rothwell. Unsurprising but disappointing nonetheless.

Re: Harry Kane vs Rob Duffy

For me VAR is not the problem. The way VAR is being used is the problem. It works in cricket for several reasons. Captains (and only captains) can request its use but if they get it wrong a couple of times, they lose the right to appeal, so that stops excessive usage. It can also be used by on field...

Re: Harry Kane vs Rob Duffy

I've really enjoyed the competition so far. Sure Tunisia and Panama are weak sides, and in both cases, they would make Chopper Harris blush for their tactics. Good to see a ref finally get on top of the rugby style tackles England have had to suffer. Going forward, England look very good. We create ...

Re: Predictions

I had a bad feeling ahead of last season that we wouldn't do too well. Uncertainties over Eales, Appleton leaving, several big name players departed. Despite my earlier reservations about Tiger, I'm beginning to warm to him. I suspect he is a much more careful owner than we've had for a while, but ...

Re: Predictions

Making predictions is a mug's game... so here goes. :lol: I don't share OY's optimism. Not one bit. Karl Robinson talks a good game, and is clearly competent, but I don't think he's as good as many fans think. He's also not (so far, at least) signed players who immediately make me think he can impr...

Fixtures

Looks pretty good to me. Barnsley and Sunderland on Saturdays early in season. New grounds for me so minimal travelling issues and unlikely postponements. Only one midweek away game. Home on Boxing Day and 29/12. Plymouth on NYD, so again travelling is eased. Only minor quibble is neither first or l...

Re: Summer news

Best new kit in years.

They've got the yellow shade just right. I like the collar and neck line, and it looks good with the lion on too.

Re: OUFC Women

Looks to me like the club are cutting their cloth accordingly & trying to live within it's means. However, this is clearly a very sensitive subject. We as a football club, should absolutely have a Women's established first team. The pathway must exist for local girls to have a route into football a...

Re: OUFC Women

Presumably you would prefer to see amateur teams playing fully professional teams under a mis-guided interpretation of pyramid structure. Yes! If those professional teams are good enough to beat the semi-pro teams (there are no 'amateur' teams in the WSL) then they can earn promotion. This is not a...
