Re: Ox Files

I've been watching these, they're very enjoyable and well made - so thanks very much. I thought Brian Horton was far too polite though, really we want the dirt and there must have been plenty, but I suppose you don't have the career in management he did without being politically aware. The relegatio...

Re: Don & Dusted

It wouldn't be sensible to play the way we play and pick the same 11 each week with 2 games every week. We need lots of midfielders and wide forwards because they are liable to get injured/exhausted. Robinson has a pattern of settling on a back 5 (or 6 with Stevens) eventually, then he fiddles about...

Re: Rotten

Signs of a recovery - the 2nd half against Northampton was the closest we've come to the peak of last season - a bit of energy, a bit less fear and confidence grew. Credit where it's due to the management and players as the wheels could have come off entirely after the Slumdon game, but they ground ...

Re: Rotten

Our last 5 games we've got 7 points, even if it did involve the worst and most worrying performance against Crewe, which isn't actually that bad. I wasn't really discussing whether the performance on saturday was forgivable or not, as what's that got to do with it? I was attempting to understand why...

Re: Rotten

I know it was Slumdon and therefore it's more important but there's some over-reaction here. I thought the team choked in a relatively unusual situation. There's actually a fair bit of pressure on the players when you're looking at growing a 7 game winning run against your teams biggest rivals. And ...

Re: Up hill and down Dale

The result was certainly a huge relief. Were we that much better though? Once we get a couple of goals we look like a confident team who could score at will. But we could so easily have found ourselves 2-1 down at the start of the second half, without really having created any great chances ourselv...

Re: Cods Wallop

There are obviously a few problems, but I don't agree that we're not creating any chances. Expected goals (which I don't think is necessarily that important but is occasionally interesting) suggests we create a few - see this table https://experimental361.com/2020/11/01/expected-goals-table-league-1...

Re: Crewe-perbole

Because if it does not, then if games are called off over a single positive case within a group who have trained and travelled together, as they should be, then the number of postponed games could multiply very rapidly. Also, anyone who is in contact with a positive covid19 person should self-isola...

Re: Trouble with a drunk coach

Also, prior to Covid there wouldn't have been enough users (i.e. it was only "overseas" fans and the occasional midweek match) to justify the cost of producing a smart tv app. I've used ifollow quite regularly for over 2 seasons and I've always found it pretty good in terms of reliability/quality.

Re: M40

Being realistic, I can't help feeling we've dodged a very expensive bullet. Wycombe will be straight down, and the poorer for it. We might have been the same. The Championship is worth an extra £5m in turnover. Any increase in costs is voluntary. Some of that £5m would already be spent on wage incr...

Re: M40

We weren't very good apart from half an hour in the 2nd half. Even then we only created two good chances (Dickie header and Henry) and one very lucky goal. I said elsewhere on here that I think our sort of high tempo football is difficult to get going from a cold start and the 3 month break did us n...

Re: Playoffs

I think Agricultural football is probably better suited to the play-offs in these circumstances - playing the high pressure, fast football we attempt to play is harder to get right from cold, as we saw on Friday. I saw bit of the league 2 play-off final and Northampton bullied Exeter. I can see Wyco...

Re: How would you end it?

I think the league needs to have some idea of what next season is going to look like before making final decisions about this one. Football is going to change dramatically, at least in the short-to-medium term. Will clubs survive? What will the structure and timescales be? Those are more important ...

Re: Freefall

We still have a decent chance of the play-offs I think - the biggest reason for our bad form was the lack of Henry and Brannagan, if those two remain fit we have half a chance. During our excellent run of results and performances these two stood out, along with Cadden and Fosu. The failure to replac...
