Re: Feetwood Town

One point for each correct answer. 1. How many players will make their debut for Oxford either starting or as a substitute? None (I'm assuming this would not be a debut for Sykes) 2. How many goals scored by both teams - 0-2, 3-5 or 6+? 0 - 2 3. How many yellow cards for both teams - 0-2, 3-5 or 6+?...

Re: Singing the Big-Crowd Blues

I thought KR was right about two things in his much more measured post-match interview. Southend did a skilful job on us, and did not look a bad side at all. Secondly, we looked tired, and there were no options on the bench likely to be able to change the game in the final third. Christmas dinners (...

Re: You’re not singing any more

This is all spot on. KR deserves particular credit for finding the best pegs for the best holes, even when they right ones just haven't been available. So moving Mous into midfield has been the greatest single factor in the transformation. Hanson is no right back (positioning v Blackpool was constan...

Re: January Transfer Window

I don't think this necessarily represents a change in policy. Circumstances change. It may well be that the big clubs are looking to reduce the number of Kemar Roofes who escape - after all, letting him go will have cost WBA quite a bit of money, even for them. We (amongst others) may be the victims...

Re: Gilly golly gosh

Sorry, KY, but I think that's too negative. I'm not getting carried away, but my analysis is closer to RR's. To say that 'the rest haven't got much quality between them' is harsh on Mousinho, Eastwood and Dickie on yesterday's showing. And some players who are not top quality at L1 level (Long, perh...

Re: Gilly golly gosh

I would add that I thought Hanson did well in the last half hour.

It's no coincidence that we stopped leaking goals when (a) Eastwood came back, and (b) Mousinho started playing as the defensive midfield player. Credit to KR for the latter.
