Re: Should the fans take the blame?

As regards whether we've under achieved with our budget or not, we have to ask some serious questions about the management of the club and also ask if other clubs are over-spending to the same degree as us or are they accepting even bigger losses. We had the 5th highest attendances this season just...

Re: New players

When we played Charlton (a Championship side)in our replay last week I wondered if Micheal Smith (recently at Wimbledon on loan) was with the party - even though he wasn't in the playing squad. I knew he was available and Charlton were looking to off load him. As it happens he signed for Slumdon a c...

Re: Managerial Merry-go-round

So who currently fits the 'perfect' profile to replace Wilder? 1) Out of contract - we can't afford compensation 2) Experience at Championship/League One level - we should be aiming for promotion and have the knowledge bank to keep us up 3) Ability to work with existing squads and a tight budget ra...

Re: nicky wroe

Without trying to exaggerate too much, this could be a huge signing for Oxford and CW. In my view this kind of player is exactly what we have needed since Bulman left. He seems to score a few goals and if he can pass and is 'box to box' he could really add to the side. He has been in promotion winn...

Re: GAME OFF

We could slip quite a bit down the table what with this postponed and the FA Cup game postponing next weekend's fixture. Things aren't as bad as they appear. The 3 teams below us are 1. Fleetwood - who have not got a game 2. Newport are at home to Northampton (which they should win). The weather fo...

Re: Wrexham

I also am quite happy with the potential 3rd round tie despite lots of people showing some dissatisfaction. It's a January day out, against higher opposition and more money into the coffers. Yes, on a personal level I'm not too unhappy. The potential of a new ground would have been nice, but I'm ha...

Oh and if anyone is still staying away because of Wilder they may be able to see mid table football soon but at least the manager will be different! http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11750/9043565/oxford-boss-chris-wilder-contender-for-portsmouth-managers-job Wouldn't that make Tom Craddock h...

Re: Youth Unemployment

I see James Roberts scored his 16th goal of the season for the youth tonight. How long before he leap-frogs Marsh in the pecking order. Not too long I suggest - but that is just a gut feeling.

Re: Youth Unemployment

I think his card was marked when he went out on loan to Staines last year. When was the last time (if ever) a United player has returned from a loan spell and become a success? He'll probably go the way of Fisher and one or two others and land up at City or Brackley. I assume you mean a success at ...
