Re: Summer transfers 2019

I’ve got a lot of time for these two points: ...we are simply aiming too high - chasing players who are, in fact, Championship players so that we are unlikely to actually land them I rather wish we’d just sign a couple of good sturdy lads from Crewe or Wycombe, never mind all these top targets Our g...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

Finally some honesty, with the manager admitting that this summer's transfer dealings have not gone as planned, saying: " There’s no point me coming out and saying everything’s perfect ". This is the third consecutive transfer window where he has said at the start that we will look to do our busines...

Re: M Brown Esq

I note in the Oxford Mail the following quotes from our manager on the subject : [O]ne player closer to home has suddenly emerged, with Marcus Browne watching on from the stands at the Kassam Stadium last night... Robinson made it clear before the end of the campaign he would love to bring him back ...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

So Cadden has signed. Motherwell fans aren’t happy... If it’s true that this whole Columbus Crew ruse was to stop us paying a proper development fee then that’s pretty poor. I think there's quite a bit of 'sharp practice' in footballing circles. Not my cup of tea but if it's the culture........ I t...

Sorry OY, I was so busy worrying about formatting that I quoted the wrong sentence. Have now edited the post so I say what I meant to say. :roll:

Re: Ched Evans

Agreed with all of that post, OY, except for this bit: Would Ched Evans known previous activities bring the club into disrepute? Again, if yes, he should not be signed. That's hard to square with our previous signing / re-signing of Adam Chapman and Luke McCormick. As I've said above, the question s...

Re: Ched Evans

Due legal process has been served, but he still seems an odious shit. Exactly this. I was broadly in agreement with the club sticking by Adam Chapman and signing McCormick. They both made awful decisions, and dreadful things happened as a result. But they were repentant and were determined to show ...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

In the weirdest move of the summer so far, we've received a fee (albeit undisclosed) for Tsun Dai, who's gone off to join Wolves . I don't know what's weirder - the fact that he's signed for a Premiership side, or that they felt they needed to pay to take him off our hands! One to file with Ivo Peka...

Re: Nuke it

Oof, I really hate football shirts with a collar. Keep those for Polo shirts and work shirts, please. Surely this is the issue that will ultimately split mankind in twain. To me, football shirts are not formal work shirts, but nor are they informal t-shirts - they're something altogether different,...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

I guess it would really depend on WHERE within the county. A new ground in, say, Kidlington or Abingdon wouldn’t worry me, just as a ground in Headington never really bothered me. All are within easy striking distance of Oxford. On the other hand, a ground in Banbury, or Didcot, or Henley, would be ...

Re: Nuke it

To me, the design was reminiscent of the 1995/6 kit - with the omission, as OY points out, of a proper collar. Each to their own, but I've only bought replica kits in recent years that have at the very least a mini flappy collar (like last year). The new one looks too much like a t-shirt rather than...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

Reports have emerged today about a £2m bid from Nottingham Forest for Gavin Whyte. The report comes from the Belfast Telegraph. As far as I can tell, for now the Nottingham Post is repeating what the Telegraph has reported, rather than having any inside information from The City Ground. £2million s...

Re: Summer transfers 2019

Rob Hall has signed a further one-year deal, presumably on a lower wage. Smart business if it's dependent on appearances.

Re: LEAGUE ONE 2019-2020

I think I'm only missing Ipswich. That big group of North West teams is a bit depressing as in the last year or two, Virgin Trains seem to have reduced the number of advance tickets on the West coast line so it ends up around £100. Plus the endless, endless roadworks on the M5/M6 have made it a bug...
