Re: City slickers

David Silva was a class above - is he the first world cup winner to play against us since Desailly when Mike Dean cheated us? How many world cup winners have we played against in our history - anyone know? Desailly and Lebeouf both played that night. The ref was Mike Reed. The reason I was so gutte...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

- The 5 options is interesting and Niall has set an expectation of announcements in 4-5 weeks. This is a very reasonable timeframe and doesn't keep us hanging on with false hope. If of course that timescale comes and goes, we can ask probing questions. I had a 1-1 session with Niall afterwards and ...

City slickers

Well that went pretty much as expected. When seen close up, you do appreciate what a completely different planet of football City's players live on. Their speed of thought, movement and passing is something else. But is this just innate skill or coaching and set-up too? I wasn't overly impressed wit...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

- The deliberate misinformation from the club about how much we are paying Firoka really doesn't help. As I understand it, the club does have grounds to query what they are being asked to pay in the service charge, but portraying the situation as we are being asked to pay £1m/year rent is daft. Ind...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

- Firoz Kassam MUST play ball and waive any charges for us breaking the agreement if we move; if not, we'll take direct action against his assets; As a matter of interest, why? If some mega-rich new board members/owners are silly/visionary enough to pay Kassam off, then who cares? I can't say I feel...

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

The position seems to be that the rent we're being charged (£300,000?) seems reasonable, but the service charge has increased significantly over the years (to be fair so has the bills for my house) and the club are very limited in the money they can make from income from things like selling drinks....

Stadium (again) - fans forum

So did anyone go to the fans forum? Sounded pretty bizarre. Robinson using the stadium as an excuse for why we're so crap. Open hostility towards our landlord from all levels of the club hierarchy. The MD saying we are looking at five different options of places to play, none of which are the Kassam...

Roofe is on fire!

Two ex OUFC managers quoted at length too.

Re: Coventry Blues

And what was with Holmes? I didn't see yesterday's game, even on the telly, but I was surprised Holmes started in the pointless trophy on Tuesday when he was coming back from injury. Indeed we've kept a pretty settled line-up for much of the start of the season, which you'd usually think was a good...

Re: Wear not so bad

In summary, Oxford played like Stevenage; very clever football. For what it’s worth I didn’t think a lot of the fouls were fouls- we just did a brilliant job of managing the game very well. If I was a Home supporter I’d be furious with Oxford. Really? Are you sure you weren't being influenced by th...

Wear not so bad

Wow. I wasn’t expecting that performance. We absolutely ripped Sunderland apart for most of the match. What a game from Marcus Browne. They couldn’t live with him at all and resorted to such blatant foul play all match that it was a miracle they still had ten on the pitch at the end. Also a word for...

Re: Accy thump

Talk of Appleton is a stark reminder that new managers need time, and you shouldn't judge them by the first few games of a season - we didn't get a league win under Appleton until the eighth time of asking. Although the Barnsley and Fleetwood performances were truly appalling, it sounds like we're s...

Re: Tykes thumping

I've held off posting until now so I could calm down. But that was absolutely woeful. A dire, dire performance. Yes, Barnsley are a good team, but that doesn't excuse not competing, not showing for the ball, not appearing to give a shit. Fullbacks - very inauspicious starts to their OUFC careers. Fo...

Re: Stadium matters

Silver linings - well there aren't many. One though is that I understand we can renew the playing rights in 7 years time and so Kassam can't bulldozer the place. I think a little bulldozing might improve the place! It's all so predictably depressing. Usually the one thing that GY/OY and I agree on ...
