Re: Progress

I think we have a much better squad than in recent seasons, although I think the first 11 in the season we lost at Wembley was better with Rob Dickie and Browne in the starting 11, albeit Kane is a upgrade on what we had. So we should be in with a better shout to cement our play off position sooner ...

Re: Wimbledone

Although I'm a big Robbo fan I think he got the subs in this one badly wrong. I thought Sykes was our best player yet was subbed. Gorrin, I thought, makes us much more solid and protects the back four very well. He was also subbed at (I think) one all when AFC were pushing forward and looking to get...

Re: Cambridge

As another who found that one of the few upsides of the pandemic was being able to watch Oxford more it was very frustrating not to be able to watch the two Sat games so far. That's £20 the club could have had out of me when they got nothing instead. The argument that fans won't return doesn't hold ...

Re: Plymouth Hoe but we’re not weeds

Good win although taking our foot off the gas after we scored nearly cost us - Taylor doing what he does best and poaching a couple in the pen area made us pretty comfortable in the end which given the people missing was pleasing. Few more twists and turns to come yet - some teams will slip up and l...

Re: Handed it to them

Karl mentioned after the game it was one match as well. Very frustrating match and I think it shows we just aren't good enough at the moment which is reflective in our league position. Of those who started/came on I would not keep Shodipo, Sykes, Hanson, Forde and Winnall for next season. All have d...

Cutting Crewe

Well that was a lot better than Monday (and their result against AFC shows how bad that was). We looked so much more up for it, moved the ball about well and played football in their half rather than whacking it forward the whole time - much more to Taylors strengths although he will be frustrated h...

Re: Season Over?

Yes I would play Agyei over Taylor at the moment given our formation. I think Taylor is the better goalscorer and striker, but the way we are currently playing I think Agyei holds the ball up better and has the pace to stretch teams. The ball is often lost when played up to Taylor, he rarely wins an...

Re: Season Over?

Really disappointing last few games which Robbo has to take a lot of responsibility for. Our squad is simply unbalanced, we have too many midfield creative types and not enough cover in defensive positions. So when one of our first choice defenders/Gorrin is out (especially Gorrin) we struggle. It i...

Re: Don & Dusted

I told you we didn't need any new wide AM players ;-) Up there with your view on Wilder!! :lol: Good win last night at a place which is tricky for us to go to normally. Win our two games in hand and we will be 3 points behind Hull. Lovely assist from Henry for the first goal as well. My main concer...

Re: Don & Dusted

Jeez reading this would have thought we had lost to a team near the bottom of the table rather than a undeserved defeat away against the team who would likely be top if they had played all their games. We completly bossed that game for the first 30m with their goal again the run of play. A lot of th...

Re: January window

Very good business - impressive stuff. Feels like we are really going for it now, only slight concern is the number of loanees - would be nice to have some of these players on a perm (and not sure we can fit them all in a matchday squad!) but the 18 (or whatever it is now) is going to be something e...

Next Season

To try and move on from the pain of Monday (and my goodness it is so painful just how control we were for that period before a hit and hope undid us) I have tried to turn my thoughts to next season and whether we will still be competitive. Its important to remember that we were third in the table wh...

Re: M40

Oh BOLLOCKS. Fair play to them had a game plan and stuck to it. BUT we dominated that only one team in it at 1.1 and we gifted them a goal even more so than the gift of the first one. Thats why it's so frustrating we shot ourselves in the foot rather than played our hearts out and the better team wo...

Re: Playoffs

Well they took 17,000 in 1994 so given its a local derby and their fan base has grown since then in normal times they may have got close! It was more the point that even given firms a generous allocation for their average attendance there should still be plenty of room - a bit of desire to make it h...
