    National News Sir Keir Starmer - Not PM

    We went into the pandemic with thousands of Nursing jobs infilled; the NHS management were clearly doing their best to work within a budget. People can make their own minds up about ‘realistic’ budgets and what they would prioritise. You can probably console yourself with the inevitable...

    EFL Where were they then?

    I don’t think he did. Our first game at their place saw Jamille Matt make his debut against us, when we conceded a fluke as a clearance rebounded off Matt over Brown. They had spent £300000 on Matt.

    League One League 1 transfers - Summer 2021 (non Oxford)

    Didn’t pull up any trees when he was on loan to us. Not overly bothered that he has moved elsewhere; I think we can do better.

    Dominic Cummings and goings ....

    He was appointed by Johnson. Sound/perceptive appointment? Maybe someone should take responsibility for this choice. I won’t hold my breath.

    Transfer News Transfer Window Summer 21

    Many seem to have made their minds up that so far as Hanson goes ‘there isn’t a player in there.’ I do wonder whether a loan out for him to play regularly a specific position ( presumably defensive midfield) might help. Sadly given restrictions on playing squad size this may not be viable. Time...

    Matches Blackpool Fan in Peace

    Congratulations, particularly after the ownership fiasco you have had to endure. Best wishes for the final, you seem to unearthed a very smart manager/coach. You are the best of a pretty ordinary play-off quartet, hope you enjoy the occasion!

    Thanks for the ‘heads-up’. I used to read this regularly back in the day and will pick up a copy again.

    Current Player Josh Ruffels

    The points being made about whether Josh is/can achieve ‘championship’ standard depend hugely on the players around him and how a team he may move to envisage deploying him. I’m sure many of us recall how Dean Whitehead was viewed when here of potentially ‘only’ likely to play at ‘championship’...

    Away Match Day Thread 1/5/2021 L1 Shrewsbury Town v OUFC

    Congratulations to all the staff for taking us to the last day of the season! Despite the money from Rob Dickie’s sale not being properly invested in the squad; plenty to be proud of. Well done to all.

    International News Black Lives Matter

    At least two people reported as ‘stakeholders’ contributing to the report are saying they haven’t been consulted. This relentless divisive politics is bloody tedious.

    National News Boris Johnson - PM

    Make as many laws as you want. If they are unenforceable, or there is no-one to enforce them effectively it only amounts to politicians hot air.

    Transfer News Players on the watch list

    I had thought about the potential of attracting Shannon back on loan as he recuperates. Robbo has talked about a forcing-type midfielder as being the kind of player he would like and maybe a decent interim measure until Chambers-Parillon is closer to a first team squad berth. I will be watching...
