Re: Where are they now?

Dean Saunders has been jailed after he admitted failing to comply with a roadside breath test and failing to provide a breath sample for analysis. The 55-year-old was stopped on suspicion of drink-driving by police in Boughton, Chester, on 10th May. He pleaded guilty by letter on Tuesday and was sen...

Re: More Grizzle at Rovers

I'll forgive (to some extent) poor facilities if there's enough else around the ground to make for a good day out. Brizzle has plenty of good pubs on the Gloucester Road to make pre-match enjoyable, Newport and Accy both have a great Sam Smith's* pub within walking distance. Harder to mount a defenc...

Re: More Grizzle at Rovers

Worst away end in the league without a doubt. Gillingham: " Hold my beer " Newport: " Hold my beer " Macclesfield: " Hold my beer " I know that we're basically debating the difference between shit and shite, but my point is that it's a crowded field - which, oddly enough, would still be a nicer van...

Re: Where are they now?

Former OUFC defender (79 appearances between 1988 and 1990) Jimmy Phillips is in temporary charge at Bolton Wanderers following the resignation of Phil Parkinson. If the protracted takeover continues to drag on, it wouldn't surprise me at all if that becomes a longer-term appointment. Can't see too ...

Re: Bolton

Jimski, I think we'd all agree with those sentiments. The difficulty though is that Bury in particular may be simply unable to complete (or, technically, commence) their season whilst Bolton will be doing so with one arm tied behind their back, and it then falls to the Football League to deal with t...

Re: Bolton

The clear difficulty* here is how the authorities deal with the issue of a club going under mid-season given the unfairness that brings to the competition. One way could be to demand that, once all promotion / relegation issues are decided, each club has to put a set amount of money into an escrow a...

Re: George Thorne

I also noticed he has the same agent as KR... wasn’t it Kardiff Exile who recent wrote: “Call me old-fashioned, but I feel uneasy about our manager being represented by an agent who also represents an OUFC player (Dickie). That strikes me as a conflict of interest.” Sounds like he knows what he's t...

Re: Oxford Utd has a Number NINE !

Excellent news. If him and Agyei can form a decent partnership, and we still have Mackie to come off the bench when needed, that's a very tidy forward line. I still think we lack sufficient strength in depth defensively to mount a sustained challenge for the playoffs, but we really ought to be finis...

Re: Ticket Master.....Hopeless!

That's very poor. I do know the club had an issue with the new membership system which has not been resolved by Ticketmaster. Basically, if you want to book an Adult and Child seat next to each other online in the Family Stand, you can - but you can't do it with an Adult Member and an Ox4Life Child ...

Re: Training Ground tour

...ideas for building a small stand so that U23 matches can be spectated (if that is even a word!) Great idea. Presumably the women's team could then play there too, thus saving us having to pay (presumably) for them to play games at Court Place Farm. They could even structure fixtures so that peop...

Peter-blimey!

Well, I think we can all be delighted by that performance and result against a side who most of us expect to be promotion challengers (but on that showing may fall some way short). I expected us to be better in the second half with the wind behind us, but weirdly both sides played better when attack...

Re: Training Ground tour

Interesting reading, OY, and lots of encouraging stuff there. I think it’s been obvious to most fans who’ve been paying attention that this has been a steady direction of travel over the past 10+ years since Ian Lenaghan first started investing in sports science at the club. What we have now is clea...

Re: RadOx phone in

Bob - I think I agree with all of that! You're absolutely right that the model we have is on paper a very sensible and sustainable one, and it's vital that everyone at the club from the Chairman to the tea lady are signed up to it. My only quibble (which I hope I expressed clearly above) is that for...

Where will we finish 2019/20?

Usual caveats - still a few days (and hopefully signings) to go, lots of variables - but where do people think we'll finish this season ? I'm going to say 19th . The squad has improved in recent days but is weaker and thinner than last season. I still can't see from where the goals will come, and we...
