Leigh-thal

Gosh we're good this year. I don't enjoy watching us the way I enjoyed the 2015-16 team, but there's a cold-edge, relentless, Man City-equse-winning-machine-ness that's pretty darned impressive. I get the impression Liam Manning might be the dullest man to sit next to at a dinner party on earth, but...

Re: Ox Files

The Oxford Chelsea goals including Rosie’s goal must be on tape somewhere. Football Focus? Match of the Day? I’ve checked my collection and whilst I’ve got some 80s tapes, I don’t have that one unfortunately. That was the season of the TV blackout. No televised league or FA Cup games, or even Match...

Re: Ox Files

I've been watching these, they're very enjoyable and well made - so thanks very much. I thought Brian Horton was far too polite though, really we want the dirt and there must have been plenty, but I suppose you don't have the career in management he did without being politically aware. The relegati...

I told you we didn't need any new wide AM players ;-)

Re: Don & Dusted

I think you won't be surprised that I was concerned by quite a few things yesterday. To me, we have a totally unbalanced squad, with a wealth of attacking midfielders and wingers - too many to know what to do with tbh - and yet almost no-one to do the holding role if anything happens to Gorrin. Firs...

I pitched this as an idea to the club, mostly because I need a hobby to get me through Lockdown III. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnZKeKW2UxY Would love to know your thoughts. And, as CW says at the end, we're looking for fans to come on the show and talk about their memorable seasons. Send your ...

Re: L'éléphant dans la pièce

I think many of us are in fairly negative places at the moment, even if many won't admit it. My thoughts are primarily about how our country, population and living standards will survive first and foremost. Without a vaccine, and with many people not taking the pandemic sufficiently seriously, the ...

L'éléphant dans la pièce

Ok, so I'm generally a bit pessamistic about lots of things now, so maybe this is a result of me being in a negative space. But, honestly, how does our club (or any lower league club) survive this? We have NO income to speak of. Incoming revenue: Season tickets - the club has been quiet on how many ...

Re: How would you end it?

There is, of course, a tremendous opportunity to rebuild football from scratch, to put clubs into local fan-based ownership models, to impose sensible and enforcable wage caps, to cut the cancerous relationship with agents, to redistribute the PL money, to create affordable fan-friendly experiences ...

Re: How would you end it?

Can anyone, honestly, hand on heart, 100 percent definitely say they really believe that League 1 and 2 will exist when football finally reopens to fans? As the Cummings spike kicks in a few week's time, how will play-offs/remaning games possibly happen? As Recordmeister says, for me the real concer...

Re: The C-word

Deciding leagues, promotions and relegations, and European spots on the basis of an incomplete league seems a legal minefield I don't think anyone, let alone the feeble EFL, will be brave enough to take on. Honestly, I think it will end up null and void, with - I hope - some sort of points bonus for...

Re: The C-word

I'm so worried about this, it's keeping me awake at night and I reckon I think about it 90 percent of the waking day. Sometimes, when doing stuff with the kids, I occasionally forget the apocalypse is about to happen, and then I remember. It's surreal, like an ongoing bad dream. I cannot believe it'...
