    Transfer News Transfer Window Summer 21

    Burton picked up bags of points post January when JFH took over, with Clare in the core of their side. I would say they were probably in the top 10 teams in the division in the time Clare was there points wise? We scored 9 goals against them in two of the only games he couldn’t play in as he was...

    Way better in midfield one of the big positives to take from tonight looks like genuine competition for Gorrin. I know it was only pre season and Oxford City but like watching a different player to the one at right back last year.

    Former loanee Ryan Williams signed somewhere yesterday can’t remember where.

    Gotta love things like that. People last year said they wouldn’t have Toni Martinez back here. He got 10 goals in 30 appearances (mainly sub appearances) for Porto last season!

    Not Gorrin? Look how spineless we looked against Blackpool without him. Good teams will walk through our midfield when he or a like for like replacement is not on the pitch. Brannagan isn’t the answer for that position unless a team is going to come and sit 11 men behind the ball. Agree...

    I agree, at one point he picked the ball up in our half and rode around 4 or 5 challenges to the edge of their box. His inconsistency and lack of work rate is how he has ended up playing at our level. That side of the game is coachable but the natural talent he has is not, which is why I would...

    Most of the best players that end up at this level are here because they have an injury history. Your name is realist but you expect us to attract top young talent, that have never had an injury in league one.

    Current Player Mark Sykes

    Can be more proud of his performance last night than others, even in the last few minutes when the game was clearly just fading out he was trying to stop them from keeping it in the corner and applying himself professionally. If we have all 4 of Gorrin, Sykes, Brannagan and McGuane next season...

    Current Player Brandon Barker - loaned in

    So direct last night and that’s when he is at his best. Doesn’t always come off but if he persists and goes at his full back every time he will score and create chances as he did last night. If there were fans in the ground he’d have had them up off their seats about 3 or 4 times just in the...

    Current Player Hanson

    A key part of what I thought looked a really strong back four last night. Good to see him get a run of games and show that he’s a very handy utility player to have at the club. Looked particularly sharp last night nipping in and taking the ball off their wingers toes a few times. Hope this run...

    General February 2021 Player of the Month

    I don’t think anyone was spectacular in February but I do think Elliot Moore has deserved a bit of recognition for being a steady performer for some time so he’s got my vote.

    Home Match Day Thread 23/02/2021 L1 OUFC v Portsmouth

    Last season I remember we were well beaten by Rotherham and then lost a 1-0 to Sunderland at home this time of year and we fell out of the top spots and I completely wrote us off. KR seems to have the knack of having mini ‘resets’ within a season and the team building little runs of impressive...

    Current Player Alex Gorrin

    Then I do think we need a more able like for like replacement for Gorrin than Hanson. I think Kashi is the last person I have seen play that position nearly as well for us. So essential that we have a defensive midfielder with the awareness to fill holes left by our attack minded defenders. Not...

    Whenever he doesn’t start we have 0 control of games. Should be one of the 1st names on the team sheet home and away.

    My team would be: Stevens Long Moore Atkinson Ruffels Brannagan Gorrin Sykes Henry Winnall Lee Subs: Eastwood, Hanson, Forde, Kelly, Barker, Shodipo, Taylor (Honourable mention for Agyei who I think deserves a place on the bench when Hall gets the nod due to injuries etc. but he’s not better...

    Well corrected. How good is it to be able to lose count nowadays unlike the start of the season!

    Wonderful cross for our second goal yesterday and looks to have a good amount of pace and quality. Very exciting player for league one! That said it’s scary how lazy his touch was in build up to their goal and after losing it he made no effort to get back and help ruffels out and is still stood...

    I agree with this. Robinson always talks about the need for whoever he brings in being better than what’s already in the building and I’m sure you don’t have to look far to find better wingers at this level that we could attract. I wonder if he didn’t have the emotional ties and history that he...

    Thought both played well tonight and made a good go of their opportunities to impress the manager.
