    In terms of three ‘permanent’ homes as opposed to any temporary stopgap arrangements it would certainly be one of the first. I’m not sure you could count instances such as Rotherham, Brighton etc as they had very unappealing and temporary situations between stadiums. Even Rovers have a history...

    Home game +++ 17/11/2018 OUFC v Gillingham FC +++

    I don’t even think it’s the lack of goals with Smith, it’s the lack of almost anything. The fact that he made a couple of tackles on their defenders and closed them down a handful of times is the bare minimum you should ever expect from a forward, and that doing this is seen as him showing a bit...

    Kassam would sell his own mother for the right price.

    Even if it has, and I’m really not sure that’s the case (if it’s true then fair enough), the fact remains that they have no interest in the current site. They’ve made that perfectly clear in their actions and it would still be cheaper than any other option by some distance. If they wanted this...

    Home game +++ 17/11/2018 OUFC v Gillingham FC +++

    A pretty terrible game between two sides who I felt were quite obviously in the bottom quarter. Two bald blokes fighting over a comb would be a pretty fair description, I’d say. However, today was very much a case of win at all costs, and none of us should really grumble at that, especially...

    That’s what they’re trying to establish themselves. But they have no interest in buying the existing stadium. Otherwise they would just trigger the clause and pay the cash. They’re rich enough to not bat an eyelid at it, but there’s no recoup in it. We have property developers on board, who are...

    There is an agreed price on the stadium that is chump change to some of our new board members. If they wanted the current stadium, they would buy it. They won’t because they want a new development with lots of extra things around it. They have zero interest in ever buying the Kassam Stadium.

    Jordan Graham

    The reality is that there is no ‘standard’ clause in loans. We might be paying a fairly modest slice of his salary, but we might also be paying 50% or more. We might have a clause regarding injuries, or we might not. It all comes down to how desperate we were to secure him, which given how...

    Jordan Graham

    Good of the club to put this out the day after it emerges that there’s another winding up petition. Timing is a wonderful thing! The Jordan Graham I remember as a 20 year old in League Two was electric. The 23 year old injury ravaged player is one I have no idea about. If he can actually get...

    HMRC?

    Myles, relax, as long as the ticket office can still print orders and the kit man has washing powder, this is all irrelevant.

    HMRC?

    I cannot believe that your response to multiple winding up orders is to shrug and go “Oh well, as long as it gets sorted before they shut the club down is doesn’t matter, what harm is it doing really?” You’re genuinely okay with this way of operating? You’re okay with the club either not being...

    HMRC?

    I always love your responses - you bounce higher than any rubber ball I’ve ever encountered, every time. Why are you so angry 24/7? Do I think it matters that the club is repeatedly getting winding up orders? Yes. Yes I do. Just the same as I would think it mattered if my business kept getting...

    Interesting to hear it being claimed that this is only the second one.

    A nice, easy tap in on the public relations front.

    Carruthers out for six weeks!

    You might have a case for your argument were it not for the fact that we haven’t left the relegation zone all season. The likes of Baptiste, Whyte and bar the odd stupid decision, Brannagan in recent weeks, have shown that young and energetic players are the ones making the biggest difference to...

    Rob Dickie at left back would make Bambi on ice look like Michael Flatley.

    Carruthers out for six weeks!

    I doubt Wilder would let us send him back to be honest. Not unless he and SU knew there was another team ready to take him on the same terms contribution wise. Not that I think KR would dream of returning him anyway. He thinks he’s one of the best midfielders at this level.

    Robinson is the man

    Most of it. From ‘guaranteed’ starters for them, to ‘guaranteed’ patterns of play we had set up for, all of which seemed to be based on one video of them playing as the home team rather than the away team. A fact I quieried without reply, I might add. As a result I could see within five minutes...

    Robinson is the man

    Never called him a mug. I said he got the tactics being relayed to the team wrong for Walsall, which I know because he played me them. I said he got a lot of things wrong which he has now backed down on because ‘his way’ was on a hiding to nothing, which is true. I said I think he’s a bit full...

    Robinson is the man

    Having met the man and sat through some analysis that the players were given ahead of Walsall - which included tactics and team selection that were all totally wrong, so let’s not get sucked in by the impressive ‘fourth best header of the ball’ soundbites too much - I’m not going to start eating...
