I just want us to pick more attackers than defenders. I tend to think we play with two many of each of those, to the detriment of our midfield. Jim plays five defenders (no, I don't count the wing-backs as anything else) and then quite often with three strikers too. Three strikers is not an "at...

PS - Please can we play like Exeter do?
I bet if Exeter's manager came to manage Oxford, he'd suddenly discover his need to experiment with three hoofing central defenders, and no width. Well that's how it seems - bloody Oxford managers...

But I agree, Exeter played the way I like a team to play.

Bizarre final substitution from Jim... we are getting completely over-run in midfield and have three strikers on the pitch. Pettefer might well have brought some much-needed stability and ball-winning, but who does Jim bring on instead? The worst striker in the world, that's who. But I also think Ex...

Why is it every manager we get seems to want to play wing-backs? 4-4-2 is what most clubs play, isn't it, yet as soon as a manager gets the Oxford job he starts thinking, &quotah yes, 5 at the back, let's try that...&quot

Yemi didn't look match-fit, but surely he had more than just the blazed-over chance? He had a decent shot saved by their keeper too, didn't he? Or am I mis-remembering (quite possible)? My man of the match would have been Trainer. Very impressed by him - excellent in the air, where he won headers an...

Thought Fisher did look quite useful when he came on (if he's who I think he was - I didn't recognise half the players.) The right back looked good too - Clarke? And some really small guy who came on near the end (and wore number 14) did a couple of nice things in the few minutes he was on.

It's an awful idea. If it were the club I supported, I'd feel the same way as I would if the club were taken over by any owner who saw the club as his/her plaything.

Interestingly (for me, anyway) the three youngsters I thought had the most chance of staying on with us, Gareth Tucker, Tommy Franklin &amp Jerome Anderson have not yet surfaced anywhere (to my knowledge).
Jerome Anderson has apparently just signed for Stevenage.

Yep, I was gonna go to Burton, but can't any more with the fixture change. If it's gonna be like this next season again, I doubt I'll bother with a season ticket. If it becomes impossible to plan when to go to games (well in advance), then I'm gonna end up missing more than makes a ST worthwhile.

Hopefully the TV viewing figures for these games will be negligible and Setanta will give it up. Thursday is a crazy day to switch matches to if there's another match scheduled for the Saturday - did they think this through?

Yeah, this is a major pain. I'm boycotting Setanta. (Not that I've had anything to do with them anyway...)

I thought Louis was ok - his scoring record wasn't at all bad for us really.

I see Bash has signed for Exeter btw.
