Re: GastonRay's First Boot

Sorry Ray but we need to get on so everyone has a chance to post their predictions so I'll set it. Same as Saturday (almost!). 1. How many changes to our starting X1? 3 2. Will we score? Yes 3. Will we score first? Yes 4. Will we avoid defeat? (This means when the tie is over) yes 5. Will either si...

Re: Karl Robinson

I would rather see referees clamp down on the cheating , whether it's time wasting or diving, rather than adding to the problem by teaching our players to do the same. Surely we don't want to see teams winning games because they were better at conning the referee than the other team rather than bet...

Re: When...

Not yet but we need improved full-backs (Norman anyone?), a much improved midfield which hopefully Hanson can bolster, proper wingers played on the correct side as even I can see that Hall will cut in every single time, the ability to get crosses in on a widened pitch and I still think we need a str...

Re: Not one of our own

There's a debate to be had about whether he should have been in contention for the starting XI. For me, I'd have said he's good enough and versatile enough to be challenging for either the right-back or a defensive midfield spot. But if the manager doesn't rate him (because of ability, attitude, wh...

Tykes thumping

Well that was a proper thrashing - we weren't at the races from the start and it was getting quite embarassing at the end. Positives: Eastwood - can't fault him for any of the goals and he made a couple of great saves including one from his own poor clearance Dickie - I thought he was commanding alt...

Perhaps BMW will leave Cowley and there will be a huge brownfield site ripe for a state of the art sports complex.
Or maybe Hinksey Heights could be bought up and redeveloped.

Re: Stadium matters

OxVox have today renewed the "Community Asset" status of our ground . Looking back over the last few pages of this thread, it's hard to not be cynical that this will be yet another news story that signifies time being spent on something that will move us no closer to owning the stadium. What came o...

First boot of the season is as follows - 1 point per correct answer and you have one joker that scores double points. 1) Will there be 3 or more goals scored in the match? 2) How many play...

Where eagles dare

An entertaining game for a pre-season friendly, my thoughts on the players as follows: Eastwood - Once again, simply magnificent - three 'worldies' and confident claiming of the ball from crosses - thank goodness we've kept him McMahon - no nonsense right back who looks like a good addition, good cr...
