Re: Fixtures

Well I'm excited about having two Devon clubs in our league again. Shame both Argyle games are midweek (likewise Pompey). Hoping to get to Pride Park on opening day - a ground the Us have never visited, though I did go there once with a mate for a Monday night 0-0 draw between Derby and West Ham. Lo...

Re: Blown it (probably)

Brannagan, Baldock and Browne would transform this team. The fact they are not there is partly bad luck, partly a risky recruitment strategy. It was also bad luck that we had to play a poor team in conditions that were a massive leveller at this stage of the season. But the defensive omnishambles is...

Trial by Argyle

That was a disappointing game. The first half was fairly even, though we had the better chances, and should have had a penalty (that's a fact, not an embittered loser's opinion). However, the second half was men against boys. Particularly disappointing as we needed the win - a draw would have suited...

Re: Where will we finish?

My final table: Rotherham 106 Wigan 106 MK Dons 97 There is no way on earth that two teams will finish on 106 points, with a third on 97. It won't happen. Isaac's link has Rotherham finishing top on 95, though that is probably a little conservative. Anyway, this has the potential to be the most aut...

Joey

On the train on the way back from one of the all-time great away days when I heard the devastating news. So much about the man’s career was tragic on a personal level, yet he gave Us fans such magical moments. Truly honoured to have seen him performing such mercurial feats on a football pitch, and t...

Re: Pompey Crimes

Are we good enough to win the play -offs ? I think we can up our game this time in front of a crowd. Still a lot of games to go but we don’t have to play any top 6 for a few weeks at least. Please don’t drop points unnecessarily. At least three of the current top nine are going to miss out on the p...

Four pens worth

Surprised there hasn't been a bit more fuss about this nationally, especially on a weekend when there were no PL matches:

Surely it's never been done before, has it?

Re: Sheff special

Also Sam Winall has finally hit the net this season, OK it's just one, but might be a tough decision to shift him out on loan right now after that. Shortly after Winnall came on, I remarked that it was the first time I had seen him play where he had not given away a free-kick before touching the ba...

Sheff special

The forum's back! The weekend seems a long time ago now, but here goes: Doing the double over a team that must have the biggest budget in the division is a fine achievement, but that was a strange game of football. We looked completely lost for the first quarter of the match - no discernible game pl...

Re: Give Us A (Stratfield) Brake

I'm just secretly hoping that sticking an ice rink on the plans is a cunning way of building the community sports hub plus retail/leisure at SB, but ending up with the Oxpens site for the stadium when Cherwell and the local residents object to a football ground in their back yard. But I know that's...

Re: Give Us A (Stratfield) Brake

I'm a bit more positive than you, KY. You're right that there aren't any great pubs near the new site, but frankly there aren't any good ones near where we've been for the last 21 years either! But at least we can all have a few drinks in Kidlington and walk over or in the city centre and get a tra...

Re: (Water) Eton Rifles

Not really sure why this thread is headlined Water E(a)ton? That was a previous proposal. Anyway, it's not conjecture any more: https://www.oufc.co.uk/news/2022/january/stadium-position-statement/ Good that something is finally out in the open.

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

Chelsea's last FA Cup 3rd round defeat was in 1991 to us. https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/chelsea-google-fa-cup-chesterfield-25893950 One of my favourite away games that. Great result, which didn't get the headlines it deserved as Woking won at West Brom the same day. No real footage of ...

Re: Progress

I'm not sure why we were able to watch a Saturday 3pm kick-off on ifollow, but I'm not complaining as I was never going to go to Lincoln the first Saturday in January. Actually I am complaining, because we were awful. As KE identifies, full-backs are an area of concern (and/or they are left too expo...

Wombling three

That was seriously impressive. Pretty much a total performance with some absolutely scintillating football thrown in. Very minor quibbles are that we are still not quite ruthless enough in front of goal (the opener should have been our third at least), and we took our foot off the gas a little when ...
