    Maybe but such moves do happen.

    I think we will make a move for Grigg at some point in this window. Pricey but him and Taylor rotating in the run in could be the difference between staying put or getting promoted.

    I think it suits both us and Taylor to hold off signing permanently in this window. It gives us and him a chance to buy a bit of time and assess other options.

    If you thought Mousinho was poor then your expectation is at a different level to me.

    Ruffels had a dodgy opening 15 minutes but was very good from that point on.

    Current Player Mackie

    Three important games in 7 days, yes, why shouldn't he be able to play 90 minutes in all 3 ? If Liverpool had Man City, Chelsea and Man Utd in 7 days they'd play there famed front three in all three. City would play Sterling in similar circumstances and Rashford would do similar with Man Utd...

    I’m not saying that’s what the owners want, they just want a winning team but it won’t stop them asking the question and that question will be easier for Robinson to answer if Mackie is getting a fair amount of game time in a relatively successful team.i

    Of course I don’t know his salary but I’d be very surprised if he was on less than 3 grand a week. Again only guessing but I’d have thought his last contract in the PL with QPR would have been 10-15 grand a week so he’ll have reached a level where he sees his worth at.

    I don’t think it was anything too complicated yesterday. They were just fitter and physically more imposing than us and with a decent level of technical ability. Man for man on a footballing level we probably shade it but as a collective they were just too strong.

    Fair enough. He’s clearly more effective than this lad and as you say their career paths are incomparable. My own view is that KR is in some ways ‘forced’ to play Mackie - or to put it another way, give him adequate game time. He’s a senior pro, no doubt on a hefty contract and a manager can...

    So what ? It’s like someone said the other day that Mackie must be good enough for L1 because he’s played in the PL and championship. Absolute nonsense. Prove yourself in L1 and then we’ll decide if you're good enough. My own view is that Mackie remains unproven in L1. A 1 in 11 strike rate...

    Current Player Mackie

    I said it elsewhere but to deploy Mackie ahead of Taylor when Henry is also unavailable seems a really poor decision. Of the front three who exactly was getting the goals yesterday ? Mackie quite simply doesn’t score. Sykes has, what, two career goals for us and Fosu has something like 1 goal in...

    Going from back to front I thought Eastwood looked edgy and not his normal assured self. Long didn’t do too much wrong but it’s perhaps what he doesn’t do that raises the most questions. Ruffles poor, looked nervous and that’s two or three three games now where he’s been below par. Dickie...

    General Best place to live in Oxfordshire?

    I currently live in a West Oxfordshire village but will look to down size in a couple of years. Witney is a great town but becoming over developed, same with a lot of the surrounding villages. We will be looking within the Witney/Buford/Lechlade/Faringdon/Wantage areas. Villages like Bampton...

    Current Player Browne Returns

    Really starting to believe now. Fair play to Tiger because he’s showing some real intent and Robbo is bringing in some serious footballers on top of an already talented squad.
