Re: Who do you want next?

I note in one interview, Mr Campbell says that he realises to get into management he must 'start at the bottom'. Ugh. If this is really how he views our club, he can find another one - preferably at Sunday league level.

Re: Who do you want next?

I'm not sure that this is actually farcical, or whether, like the transfer window, this simply reflects the media spotlight. Eales taking his time is no bad thing. I would imagine negotiations are tricky, because there would be, I presume, a different offer for each 'candidate'. The board may wish t...

Shoes for SE7

So, if we still exist in a week's time... You can double your score on one answer by playing a JOKER. If you play it on Qu4 or 5, please indicate which player it attaches to. 1. How many players on loan to OUFC will be on the pitch at the end of the game? 2. At half time, will we be winning, drawing...

Re: Pep Booted

OUFC4eva: are you (or anyone else) able to enlighten us any further without breaking confidences? Losing the dressing room would seem to be a logical part of this. I can imagine Eales will have kept close enough to the players (or Faz or Chrissy?) to be aware of anything which was going down.

Re: Pep Booted

I would agree with all this. It is a surprise, if it relates simply to results. I suspect (with no evidence, and I agree we are unlikely ever to know) that it relates to off-the-field issues. Two possible contributing factors would be disagreements on transfer policy (Clotet appearing to try to box ...

Re: When do we start panicking?

I didn't enjoy yesterday at all. Of course not. But I agree the abuse is disproportionate, and I also detect a level of xenophobia in fans' comments, and especially the criticism of his post-match interviews. Appleton was no genius in terms of analysis on Radox, and under Appleton there was a failur...

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.
