Re: Season predictions 2022/23

This season the league is going to be horribly competitive - although it is hard to know for sure just how much cash is being thrown around by some clubs with so many transfers being for "undisclosed fees" (why is that anyway? Does anyone know?). I could quite imagine the league splitting ...

Re: Fixtures

So looking forward to popping over to Derby, only to see they have scheduled it for a day I am away with work. Hoping it gets moved to Sunday for TV.

Presumably on our Ireland scouting radar?

Have we ever had a son of a former player play for us? I can't think of any off the top of my head.
Harvey Bradbury?

Re: Blown it (probably)

I posted after the Plymouth defeat that I felt our persistent failure to beat the other teams at the top would mean we would not stay in the playoff places this year. But a defeat at Morecambe surely nails this now. Defensive frailties highlighted against the top teams is frustrating, but against a ...

Re: Where will we finish?

The last two seasons, we could not be relied on to beat the other teams at the top - yet we still made the play-offs. Thanks to our run-in this time around, this same problem risks us failing to make the play-offs. Honestly, even before we played Ipswich I was concerned this would be the case. Today...

Re: Am I missing something?

The thing for me is what it suggests about KRs view of Seddon. Not sure simply moving players around would have helped, without going to a back four. But that might have unbalanced things elsewhere. What bothered me more was simply the drop off in our play in the second half. We were flat footed, ca...

Re: Where will we finish?

Where will we finish? No idea, but it is going to be one helluva few weeks, with plenty of twists and turns still to go, I am sure. With that backline yesterday and general defensive vulnerability, we might have got away with things - Ipswich will not be so profligate - so I am hoping to get some fi...

Re: Joey

Watching the Quest goals highlights this morning, as they started to speak I had no idea what was coming next. Awful, awful news. I have real trouble remembering individual moments from specific games, but two I remember vividly were the goal against Blackpool (I was right in line with the shot and ...

Re: Pompey Crimes

Still, competing consistently around the top of this league is a big improvement on the previous 20 years. And the games are pretty entertaining. So I'm not complaining. To distract myself from Bolton's late goal on the drive home, I pondered the question of where I felt our par level is currently....

Pompey Crimes

A red card that plenty of people thought was not. A yellow that was the clearest red I can imagine. An away keeper timewasting for most of the 105 minutes. A good chunk of the first half where Pompey players lost their heads. A good chunk of the second half where Oxford players shot wildly rather th...

Re: New signings

Looking back a few months, one view was that we had had the best (summer) transfer window in years. Maybe being in and around the play-off places most of the season so far is confirmation.

But I have been wondering - have we ever reached deadline day with no incomings confirmed?

Re: Four pens worth

Why the surprise? Surely the EPL is really the only football worth reporting on...and with the end of the transfer window imminent there is plenty to occupy the hacks without them having to sully themselves with non-league kickabouts. From what I have read, my sense is that this has never happened b...

Re: Sheff special

I agree with everything said here about our performance overall, and befuddlement over how SWed failed to get anything from the game. But I'll take it. I do not normally pick up on little details, but I did spot Winnall having a quiet word with Bodin as he went over to take that corner. Winnall clea...

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...
