    Must read on 'the incident.'

    Excellently put. But I got that instant high on Saturday, higher than for ages watching OUFC. I don't think VAR would have taken that away. Then when the goal was (temporarily) ruled out obviously that high was wiped out too, but with it's reinstatement along with the relief came another little...

    I was there for the (half) match. It was difficult for goal kicks to even get out of the penalty area let along the defending teams own half. But I don't remember the ball refusing to stay still so much in dead ball situations there. Having 4 sides might have made a difference. The Mansfield...

    I think so. He is an intelligent young man.

    Will any of our games between now and the end of the season be for the faint hearted?

    Fan's View - Rochdale away

    I think that was what I was trying to say. But we did hit the woodwork twice at Rochdale. An inch or so could have made the difference. But it didn't. That's the point (instead of three).

    This is something I've been banging on about for ages. Plus it always seems very easy for the opposition to retain possession when it is them throwing the ball in. Does my head in. If it's all about fine margins we don't do ourselves any favours.

    We see things different regarding Kashi & Long. Kashi I thought was instrumental in getting us playing at a faster pace. First time passing to Whyte was excellent. I thought he did fade though. I can't see what Long did wrong. He has played the last four games in a defence that has let in just...

    That though can change match to match.

    No worries, that wasn't what I thought at all. I actually kind of question myself from time to time. Interesting what a couple of you have picked up on. Expectation or hope - I really don't know.

    He has to go....

    I don’t think that because I’m not yelling from the roof tops that I want KR out in any way makes me apathetic. I honestly can’t see any alternative at the moment that I think would give us a better chance of survival. (Pretty sad that though, isn’t it). Changes sometimes work and sometimes...

    I just write it as I see it / feel it on a game by game basis. Glass half full or half empty? Not sure but I guess tending towards the latter. That said a decent win at Rochdale and the outlook will have changed somewhat. A defeat doesn't bear thinking about. But realistically we need to think...

    Mackie? Dickie? Brannagan? Even Sam Long, perhaps?

    I didn't think we were the better side and that still worries me.

    Absolutely But it is not yet a lost cause. It is all very fine margins at the moment. Leaving aside the 4-2 defeat at Accrington all of our matches since that non-display at Plymouth have been draws or decided by a single goal margin. I think that's also quite an important stat which kind of...

    That's almost always the case when a team isn't doing well. But I keep coming back to this - we're not the worst at either end. 15th best with 1.194 goals scored per game. Yes, there are nine teams worse than us. Defensively worse. We've let in 1.5 goals on average. Walsall, Plymouth, the Gills...

    Don't think so Tim. My good lady wife said it first then someone in the row in front, having heard it, repeated it immediately. I thought MM's pointing was telling other players where to go without covering the same amount of ground himself. I recall from my working days many years ago talking...

    That is amazing. Didn't make sense to me but I don't claim to know everything about football by a long way. 33 in the league from 248 games.
