    Matches Papa John’s

    It's weird - of the teams we've beaten in our current winning run, I thought the Wombles on Boxing Day were by some distance the most unlucky. They were the better team for the final two thirds of the game. But their league form since the beginning of December is absolutely atrocious. Still -...

    Home Match Day Thread 23/01/21 L1 - OUFC v Bristol Rovers

    This side has a really solid spine now. Moore-Atkinson-Gorrin-Taylor is a stellar base to build your team around (in League One, at least). They've all been in terrific form recently, and were all bang on it today. Don't think you could go wrong picking a MOTM from that bunch, but I'd have given...

    Matches Reduced Season.

    Bit of a shame for City - they had a shot at the playoffs this season, and their best league finish ever (I think?). But 100% makes sense. National League North/South clubs should not be taking out loans to make sure that they can complete a season safely.

    International News Big Tech & their power....

    Was thinking about the 'taking your ball home' analogy. And it's a good one - Google are threatening that, unless they get their way. But for me the appropriate response is not to give in to them. And it's not to pass a law saying that they can't take their ball home (it is their ball after...

    International News Big Tech & their power....

    If a tech company wants to withdraw its product from a particular region, that's their decision. They're the ones that are going to be losing the business after all. The only instances where a private company should be legally forced to provide a service is if they have a complete monopoly on a...

    Transfer News Transfer window 2020/21

    I assume - with no match day income - that we're going to lose several million this year already. And, with purse strings a little tighter everywhere, I don't think we're going to be able to sell a player for multi-millions this year either. Too early for Atkinson, and Cam is too much of a...

    Apart from the date of the Doncaster game. Twice!

    Home Match Build Up 23/01/21 L1 OUFC v Bristol Rovers

    We did beat Accrington back in September, but they have slipped back to 10th place now (Hull thumped them yesterday). Hence my post. I thought we were a little bit fortunate to get a point against Hull, who bossed the last hour; and the game against Ipswich was at home, very turgid and they...

    Transfer News Transfer window 2020/21

    I think it's worse than that - they needed two thirds of clubs to sign up to introduce the cap, and they got those 16 votes (just - I believe there were 7 nos and Wigan abstained because they'd just gone into admin). But presumably, to change it back, they would need a similar two thirds...

    Home Match Build Up 23/01/21 L1 OUFC v Bristol Rovers

    I'd love to believe that's true - that we can divide the season up into pre-Scum and post-Scum, and that the post-Scum team is more purposeful and generally better - but we did play perfectly well earlier in the season against Rochdale, MK Dons, Accrington & Wigan. Against the one good team...

    Home Match Build Up 23/01/21 L1 OUFC v Bristol Rovers

    We're 8 points off the playoffs after last night. The 'Games in Hand' situation is pretty complicated because of the teams ahead of us, we have three in hand over Charlton & Crewe, but none in hand over Doncaster & Ipswich and we've actually played one more than Accrington. But look - the main...

    International News Trumps parting gestures

    I know it's different across the country.... ....but here in New Jersey, today feels like letting out a very long, very deep sigh of relief. There have been a lot of happy people in my Zoom meetings this morning!

    Home Match Build Up 23/01/21 L1 OUFC v Bristol Rovers

    Feels like there's been a lot of match days this year where we've been left looking at everyone else's results. And last night - like most of them - was good news for pessimists (most of the teams near the bottom got beat) and bad news for optimists (most of the teams near the top won). More...

    Bit generous to give MApp credit for Kenny - the lad spent, what, four months with us....and the rest of his life (before he went to Schalke) at Everton!?! Baldock played more than twice as many games under MApp than Kenny did! Can definitely give MApp more credit for the likes of COD, Rothwell...

    Article I read suggested it was between us, Ipswich & Lincoln for McNally.
