Re: No more Payne

In this context, the hysterical and vitriolic criticism, especially of Eales, on the other forum is worrying. Some of this is from kids, but some is from supporters who should know better.

Re: No more Payne

Unless the Oxford Mail and Payne are better at misleading the public than I think they are, the article surely suggests that this was Huddersfield's instigation. I suspect contribution to salary is likely to be the answer.

Will Oxford score in the second half? 4. Will Walsall score in the second half? 5. Will Oxford receive an...

Re: Blackpool - a few questions

Pep / Jerome made it pretty clear that 'the new boy' can expect to start shortly, but he'd had one day only with the squad - imagine the impact on Dickie's confidence if he had come on as sub and Blackpool had scored through a defensive mix-up.

Re: Blackpool - a few questions

I agree with Werthers - we did come to get the upper hand in the second half after the Eastwood double save. Ledson and Carroll showed a fair amount of grit. And how often have we been undone by one quality strike? Obika took his chance very well. That said, I agree about the passing - GvK especiall...

Re: When do we start panicking?

I would agree with this whole-heartedly. You cannot ignore the entertainment value. Having watched us struggle under Asprey, and have mixed fortunes under Greaves and Adkins, I think it is important to arrive at a game (especially if you have to travel a distance) thinking that you will probably see...

Re: Valley Parade Vinkle Pickers

A bit close, this one:

1 point: OA
3 points: Hog
4 points: Hoglette, RR and AC.

Tie-break - away attendance was 404, so the pessimistic Radley Rambler was closest.

Valley Parade Vinkle Pickers

Focusing on team selection: For each player, will they be on the pitch ALL of the time, NONE of the time, START (and be subbed), or (join the game as a sub and) FINISH. (a) Henry (b) Ledson (c) Mowatt (d) Obika (e) Payne (f) Rothwell (g) Van Kessel ONE JOKER will double your score for that question....
