Re: Latic Intolerance

Very good performance, and time, I think, to give KR great credit for turning things around. Those who refuse to acknowledge what he has done are being vindictive, in my view. Looking back, I think the team has always played for the manager, with the possible exception of the bizarre home game again...

Re: WhyCom-plain

Indeed, 100% agree. I fully agree with the wit who put on the other forum, 'Mid-table obscurity - how I've missed you!' Is there anything we as fans, or as Oxvox, can do to influence this process? It seems that the club has taken a first step in not going out of its way to annoy Kassam. I always fel...

Re: WhyCom-plain

I'm glad to see this recognition of what the team has achieved over recent weeks. I'm not sure about Robinson. After the disastrous start, we have accrued 44 points from 29 games (=1.5 points per game) which is on the edge of the playoffs in a normal season. In achieving that, he has managed to turn...

Re: Why are the bookies so confident...

I think, Dr Bob, that 'winning ugly' is rather unfair to yesterday's performance. KR stuck with last week's winning line-up, so presumably he put team dynamics before logic. The first half was very stodgy, as both sides didn't want to commit forwards, knowing that a wayward midfield pass could other...

Re: Why are the bookies so confident...

Good question - it almost makes it worse if we screw up! I would suggest a number of factors: • the team sheet - with Whyte & Graham on the pitch, and Browne on the bench, we have a high-quality match-day 18. • form - Walsall, for example, are sinking like a stone • fixture list - we have few of the...
