Portman Pleasures

Well I was there on Saturday, Jerome, and I thought it was a bloody good day out! Like many others in the away end, that was my first trip to Portman Road, and I was very impressed by the stadium. It felt like a proper old ground whilst at the same time boasting all mod cons and being in the middle ...

Re: Freefall

Don't disagree with any of the concerns above about our financial sustainability and "the stadiumsituation". Clear questions for the board to answer on both fronts. But as far as our on-field performance is concerned, it might be instructive to revisit the thread I started back in August where we al...

Re: Bapxit Day

That’s that then. Our old friend the undisclosed fee.

I’d expect us to push a couple of deals over the line between now and the deadline - just hope one of them’s a right back.

Re: Bapxit Day

I have no problem with us developing and selling young players. The only thing worse than having players people want to sign is having players that no-one wants to sign, as was the case from about 1997 until 2009. What does distress me is when we let good players go for less than they're worth. We c...

Re: Newcastle Utd

I can understand the desire to play Mackie as a starter, but he seems to be so much more effective when he comes off the bench to get in the face of tired defenders. His niggling bulldog style is easy to cope with if he's getting worn out at the same rate as the opposition. You see, I'd argue the o...

Re: Man City

What we did last time. Give it our best shot, but once Man City have sauntered to a 2-0 lead, we plead with Mr Guardiola for a non-aggression pact whereby we won't injure any of his starlets as long as they don't humiliate us!

Re: Where are they now?

Former double loanee defender (five games for Us in 2000 and another six in 2003) and now very successful manager of UWIC Cardiff Met, Christian Edwards, suffers a heart attack in training. Nice bloke by all accounts - get well soon, Christian.

Re: Play up Pompey

So long as we sell out to home fans, I couldn’t give a flying firoz about away fans. Give ‘em the minimum allocation, always. Never understand this mentality. Do as you would be done by, otherwise you have no right to complain when we're given a lousy allocation and charged £25 to stand on a crumbl...

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

My local rag here in Cardiff has an interview with Wales starlet Ben Woodburn , reflecting on what he's learnt over the last few years. Most relevant bit to Us: "I have learned so much at Oxford this season, knowing I am able to play 90 minutes and keep fighting for the team. I have taken a lot of k...

Re: Doncaster Rovers

Oh and I do wish callers into RadOx would stop telling the Board to back Robinson. What do they think the Board has been doing?! Six changes and we still stuff West Ham. Six major players missing with injuries yesterday and we still put out a team like that. In the period of two or three subs and m...

Re: Hammer Time

If I was ranking them, I'd come up with something broadly similar, except for the fact that I'd have the Wycombe game much higher up. I know it lacked the high-profile opponent of the cup games, but in terms of matches that mattered in our history and of games that made our god-awful stadium feel li...

A quick question: Did Thorne come off because he was injured?
Yeah, bad arm injury apparently. Don't know any more than that.

Edit: dislocated shoulder, apparently. You've got to feel for the bloke, he clearly has bad luck with injuries.

Re: Hammer Time

Highlights here . Some fine goals in there, especially Baptiste's. Sykes' cross for Taylor's is also the sort of the thing that gives centre forwards wet dreams. PS: whilst looking at the BTL comments about the game on the Guardian website, I saw this by one of our own from RageOnline. Made me chuc...

Re: Sincil Bank - Operation Yellowhammer

Incredible result, and one that begs the question: how good are we? Ten league games in, and we can usually start to deduce something. At this point last season , we were second bottom and I was calling for Robinson's head . Today, we sit 12th with a decidedly mid-table record of W3 D3 L4. As Oxblog...

Re: Wirral Oxford

Enjoy, Otmoor - it's a cracking ground. I went there a few years back when we won 2-0, and it was fabulous afterwards to hear all the Bolton fans bemoaning how far they'd fallen, losing at home to "the likes of bloody Oxford". After years of being humbled by Conference sides, it was nice to feel tha...
