    Ref Watch 13/07/2020 - OUFC v Wycombe Wanderers L1 Play Off Final - Robert Jones

    I'm absolutely amazed at how one eyed some football fans are to think that wasn't a penalty! I also love the "going for the ball" argument that always gets trotted out as if that somehow excuses it. Two players went for the ball, their player got their first and then they collided, penalty...

    +++ 06/07/20 L1 Play Off Semi Final: Leg 2 - OUFC v Pompey +++

    The issue with Hanson is he can be wildly inconsistent from one moment to the next. He has a decent technique on him so not a surprise he can take a decent set piece. I remember one game he played right back and could have had three assists if our finishing was better, he put in some fantastic...

    Worked out way back into that off a poor start. Have started playing since we got Henry into the game but as others have said Woodburn needs to get into. We've really had the rub of the green from the ref as well, hopefully we don't give any reasons to give a pen second half. Do they get to see...

    Brehme was a bit before my time but having a quick Wikipedia he played for Inter, so either him or Bergkamp have to go. Laundrup played for Lazio, Juve and Barca which clashes with Gazza, Thuram and Puyol! It's a lot harder than it looks! Edit - Essien played for Real Madrid and Milan, so...

    Saw an interesting challenge today that might distract from the current goings on for a while. Name your worldwide best 11. Criteria is thus; they must have been playing while you were alive and no two players can be from the same country or played for the same club. Edit for clarity, it...

    Bingeability for the lockdown

    I loved Parks & Rec too but didn't much care for The Good Place, watched the first season and possibly the second but was a bit meh about it. Really enjoy Brooklyn Nine Nine as well which has a lot of the same people working on it.

    Current Player Mackie

    I take your point about building a happy squad. I have no doubt that Mackie is a great pro and good to have around the place but I don't think that's enough to justify an appearance every single game so he can get a bonus when there are better options on the bench. The games I mentioned against...

    Current Player Mackie

    I don't think it's a crazy complaint at all and a lot of people are being pretty dismissive of those who think it isn't great practice to only use two subs because you need to get someone on for a token appearance at the end. I get the argument that bringing on someone to help manage the game...

    I'm absolutely baffled by how so may people think it was Mackie who played the ball to Ruffels? Were you all there? Stupid from Mackie who should have gone to the corner rather than back but it was Thorne who played the bad ball to Ruffels who cocked up the back pass. All three have to take...

    My dad found a pair of glasses at St James Park on Saturday, we were sitting around M167 if anyone nearby has lost some.

    I haven't read all this thread but curious as to how much people have invested and what sort of profit you're on so far, if you don't mind me asking?

    I assume no one else does this then 😆 Thought I'd mention it again, I was having a quick browse through the stocks and shares investing thread. Similar concept but with footballers, I find it really interesting and great fun, it helps that it's been pretty profitable as well! Getting a bit more...

    Absolute B*****s. Eastwood made a massive error handling well outside his box. That's a red card so the ref has to give it, he can't choose to ignore the rules on a whim, would the people who think it was wrong (not just aimed at you here as there's been a few) still feel the same if it were...

    Do many people on here get involved with this? A different form of gambling on football that has become much more popular in the last few months. You buy shares in a player, or many players, and value changes linked with real world performance and media presence (amongst other things). I got...

    I like the statistical analysis of things like this but I'm not sure I can trust the figures given. To say Browne had a slightly worse than 50/50 chance of sticking the ball into an open net from 6 yards and almost bang on central seems off. Also it happens so quickly live but I thought Nelson...

    Bit confused by these stats. Agree we were the better team but I don't think that shows it properly. I can't see how our expected goals were as low as that with some of the chances we had. Was there really only a 1 in 5 chance of Browne scoring from his shot??
