    And there are a few you are happy for a confrontation to happen!

    Fan's View 19/20 - Ipswich away

    Paul, I actually thought Robinson adopted something akin to a 'Plan B' on Saturday - we seemed happy on occasion to put the ball in space behind the wingbacks, rather than trying to always play neat triangles and dominate the possession stats.

    Away MDT +++ 22/02/20 Ipswich Town v OUFC+++

    There's another slightly 'unusual' take on the day from an Ipswich fan, although the football only gets mentioned about two thirds of the way in. https://www.twtd.co.uk/forum/475895/the-warky-league-one-report-oxford-united-(h)/#3

    I'm with you GG and my ire is also further stoked by what happened to Kingstonian (I live fairly locally to Kingsmeadow).

    Home MDT +++ 18/02/20 OUFC v AFC Wimbledon +++

    Wimbledon were the poorest team we've seen at home this year and that includes a Conference team. They also seemed to have a manager that hadn't watched us play recently - rather than trying to press us, they sat back and encouraged us to play. As I often do, I had a quick look at their forum...

    Current Player Dear Dan Agyei

    I'm not sure myself and most of the posters here are putting Agyei 'on a pedestal' and we're not making premature claims of greatness. We are simply commenting that Agyei has made some encouraging contributions at a time when the team is struggling and we'd like to see a little more, rather...

    Current Player Dear Dan Agyei

    I think the point is that twice in a week Robinson has made some very 'qualified' comments about Agyei - after contributing to our revival against Newcastle he mentioned the miss at the beginning of extra time rather than accentuating the positive and yesterday he observed that Agyei could be a...

    Current Player Dear Dan Agyei

    I think the phrase is 'damning with faint praise'.

    General Jan transfer window

    That might be the case, but playing regularly in front of large crowds and guaranteed European football would certainly appeal - as well as the fact that he's young enough to enjoy success and move on. That said, I've obviously no idea if there is any truth to this and Celtic fans don't seem to...

    +++ 25/01/20 Newcastle United v OUFC FAC +++

    Good to get that in early, pre-empting the inevitable flow of comments about the unfairness of ticket allocation! The oddest part of Saturday's game was the bloke behind me asking me to sit down as he couldn't see...........fair enough maybe, except that was at 14.40, 20 minutes before...

    Ref Watch 25/1/2020 Newcastle V OUFC FAC4 Robert Jones

    I said at the time I thought Lascelles was lucky to escape with a yellow card - it was a reckless tackle and he was out of control. VAR really changes the crowd dynamic - all three decisions were obvious on Saturday and the breaks in play unnecessary. Also, why wasn't Joelinton booked for a...

    More relevantly, why don't you post a video of his Oxford howlers?

    General Jan transfer window

    I think 'dodgy' is unwarranted - he stepped in after not playing matches for a long while and did a pretty good job in the circumstances. His positioning was generally good and most of the time he was quick off the line (thought he might have done better against Hartlepool) and he communicated...

    Match Buildup Team for Rovverham

    Please...no Mackie in the starting line-up. I realise he has his merits (particularly as a sub if things need shaking up) but he isn't going to contribute with a goal or assist. He was part of the problem in the first half last Saturday, giving up cheap off-sides and seemingly unable to...

    General Jan transfer window

    Hmmm...he might well turn out to be a better all round footballer than Ali and let's hope so, but writing off Ali as a 'fancy beach footballer' is somewhat one-eyed. he's made about about 145 Premier League appearances, scored 48 goals and made 32 assists. Strikes me as a pretty good record so...

    FA Cup 1st round draw

    No terracing as such in the new ground, one nice stand (1000+) and some fencing around the rest. I'm reasonably local and the capacity does seem to to be 3,000, although I'm not sure that's been tested up til now! Also, they will have to introduce some sort of segregation, which doesn't exist at...

    Ex Player Good story on Billy Whitehurst

    Seemingly out of nowhere, the Whitehurst story crops up every now and then. There’s a certain amount of myth making here - maybe he was harder than Shotts and Briggs, but nowhere as near as good a footballer. Most of his career goals were scored for Hull in the bottom division between 80-85...
