Re: Have I Got Old News For You

Preston retro game - when goalkeeper Alan Kelly played on the wing with his arm in a sling. https://www.lep.co.uk/sport/football/preston-north-end/pne-news/preston-retro-game-when-goalkeeper-alan-kelly-played-on-the-left-wing-with-his-arm-in-a-sling-against-oxford-united-in-1971-1-10088554 http://w...

Re: Play up Pompey

Also our current three seasons in the third tier I don't remember ever being as high as fourth. Depends how you count it. When Gino van Kessel bamboozled the Pompey defence to seal a 3-0 win two short seasons ago, we went top of the L1 table with 6 points from 2 games. So we've been higher than fou...

Re: Cup draw

Yep - home to Villa or Leicester probably the only two less enticing draws than this for me. Would have loved a trip to a proper big PL ground. Oh well, we’re a better team now than when we played them last. Anyone know how many ties are televised? Man U v Colchester is a shoe-in for TV, but we must...

Re: Cup draw

Definitely not Colchester away! I don't know, it would be a new ground to visit at least. Probably get a better view than at Layer Road too, though I have fond memories of half-seeing Phil Whelan score a winning goal while sat on his arse there once. Anyone else noticed that we've been drawn at hom...

Cup draw

1-1 against Sunderland - who’d have thunk it? In recent previous versions of that result we’ve been unlucky not to win. Last night not so much. A slightly scratchy performance against a team who were considerably better than Rochdale. We rode our luck in the first quarter as Sunderland looked to get...

Re: Scoring in the Rain

It does feel wrong to be critical, but I also thought we should have put Rochdale to bed a bit earlier, particularly once they went down to ten men. Not just because we seemed to take our foot off the gas a bit, but there were some sloppy moments too. But we are a pleasure to watch at the moment, an...

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

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...
