Womble

Just seen on Facebook the news that one of our this forum's members, Andy James aka Womble, has died. It will be strange and sad not to see him at away games. I knew he'd been ill, but the last time I had a good chat with him - on New Year's Day walking from Home Park to Plymouth Station - he seemed...

Re: George Thorne

He was the real bright spark in the first quarter of the West Ham game too. Real quality passing. Shame for him and Us too I reckon.

At least we have Baptiste who seems to do a similar job. As long as he stays injury free for once...

Hammer Time

That second half has to rate as one of the very best OUFC performances I’ve ever witnessed. We held the Hammers reasonably comfortably in the first half - forget the possession stats, we had the better chances - and then completely overran them after the break. No need to single anyone out. We were ...

Re: Sincil Bank - Operation Yellowhammer

Ridiculous scoreline! I'd be interested to know from those that were there whether we played like world-beaters, or if it was more a case of everything we hit going in - ie was it quality finishing for once, or a top quality display all round? I was abroad (we always seem to have great results when ...

Re: Wirral Oxford

One team looked fitter One team looked like they wanted it more One team could pass to their own men One team didn't just hoof it aimlessly from the back on many occasions One team broke in numbers (at least in the first half) One team tested the opposition keeper on numerous occasions That team wa...

Re: Wirral Oxford

It’s Bolton’s first home game of any significance since their rescue and takeover. 9,000 fans turned up for a tinpot trophy game a couple of weeks ago. The place will be rocking tonight. On top of that Keith Hill is a decent manager. He will have been stung by saturday’s result and be making damn su...

Wirral Oxford

A straightforward victory, but not a particularly convincing one despite the comfortable scoreline. We certainly looked a lot more solid than in recent matches I've seen, but whether that was to do with Us tightening up or the limited threat offered by Tranmere is open to question. Nobody played bad...

Re: League Cup 3rd Round Draw

Also, did everyone else know about the prize money? There isn't any in the earlier rounds....! The winner picks up £100,000 and the runner up gets £50,000. That's a disgrace, bearing in mind the amount of cash swilling around. I almost have sympathy for Premier League and Championship teams and can...

Re: More Grizzle at Rovers

Hmm. If I'm going to be on an uncovered terrace I'd rather it's behind the goal with no pillars than stuck in a corner with various fences and dugouts obscuring my view. So I'm rejecting Macc and Accy* outright. In fact I'd say the away end at Sw*nd*n is worse than both anyway. Gillingham is clearly...

Re: More Grizzle at Rovers

Well that was hot. At least the catering hut was giving away free cups of tap water, though if I was being mean I'd say it was only because they'd sold out of £2 bottled water. Very pleased I was in the seats! It's bad enough just looking into the sun on that terrace, but the 30 degree heat must ha...

More Grizzle at Rovers

Well that was a pretty depressing performance, and very similar to that against Burton on Tuesday night - the difference being that Rovers were a really limited side, but still beat Us comfortably. Again we looked quite good going forwards, and opened the home team up several times with patient pass...

Re: Bolton

I don't really buy the argument that it's unfair if some clubs gain an advantage from facing a weakened Bolton team. It's up to Bolton what side they put out, and teams' fortunes can fluctuate wildly over the course of a season with new signings and injuries. The transfer window hasn't even closed y...

Re: Burton...

First game I've seen this season too, albeit on a very small screen. The good moments were very good - some lovely quick passing and vision, so I can see what people have been raving about in that respect. But the bad bits were awful. Yes, Burton were focussed and direct, but we pretty much ushered ...

I'm about to try and renew the various memberships online now. Let's see how that goes... Well there was no renewal option, but I bought new memberships and allocated them to the relevant accounts painlessly enough. Picked up some Bristol Rovers tickets too - was surprised to find seat tickets stil...

Re: Ticket Master.....Hopeless!

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 Member because Ti...
