    Out of interest, if you were in charge, what would you do with Buckingham? Would you back him, or sack him?

    Home Match Day Thread 19/04/2024: L1 - OUFC v Stevenage

    The problem I have with statements like that is that it is not 'simple'. We had the best keeper in the league and he got recalled. Des had injuries to contend with and had two games a week when he joined with little time to get ideas across on the training pitch. He had no Assistant Manager to...

    I agree it's been a massive loss. I don't think it's been mentioned enough either.

    He's good with the ball at his feet in terms of receiving a pass and getting himself set before moving it on. But I don't think his distribution with his feet is that good. Seems to be at least once a game where he goes to lob the ball over an opposition winger to our full back but ends up...

    Dot Counting Stevenage Crowd - Sell Out?

    We could still get to Wembley you know. Which would be a big game for everyone, not least the dot counters.

    How do you think he would do working under Tim Williams?

    Manager/Coach Des Buckingham

    Now seems as good a time as any to reflect on 3 home games of DesBall in 7 days. When it's good, it's really bloody good. That Peterborough performance is one of the best Oxford performances I recall seeing in years. Not just the scoreline but the manner of the victory - fast, exciting but...

    Where do I scan the QR code to get a NFT of that penalty?

    I'm struggling with some of what I've read on here recently regarding the potential result tonight. 'Terrified', 'petrified', 'shitting it'. It's a game of football and nothing to be scared of. I'm planning on enjoying myself tonight.

    Home Match Day Thread 16/4/24 Oxford United v Lincoln City

    Yep, I suspect what Lincoln were tonight was a version they needed to be to win that game. We've lacked physicality for ages now. Goodwin was the exact profile we needed to go for, we just need to hope he's not broken. We also need the same sort of player in midfield like Erhahon. They rode...

    I thought that was a game of fine margins really. On Saturday, Peterborough played into our hands and everything we did came off. Tonight it didn't. I think Lincoln were clearly well organised and to score so early into the second half really set things up perfectly for them. I thought Erhahon...

    General Oxford Fanatics Reappearance - Missing Money

    I echo this. I know there is an important outstanding question around where previous donations have gone, but I trust @John Lennon to follow up on this when he can. John - you've made a great start to improve the communication with what you've said on here already, and the pre-match stuff vs...

    Manager/Coach Des Buckingham

    I can't put into words how much I enjoyed Saturday. The win was emphatic, but I loved the style of it as well. Ultimately we all want winning football, but if you gave me the choice, I'd pick winning a game with 30% possession where you cut through the opposition at pace, over having 70%...

    Manager/Coach Des Buckingham

    Oh don't get me wrong - I think you were right and I wouldn't expect you to backtrack. A lot of people said or thought the same, I know I did. I was probably a bit clumsy with my wording and I apologise if it looked like I was making a 'see, I told you it would be all ok' post. I wasn't. I...

    General League One Agent’s Fees

    I thought about this the other day when I saw Port Vale slump to another defeat. With Port Vale looking a real candidate for the drop, I do wonder of the impact of the pitch invasion match on their season. They went into the original fixture off the back of coming back 3 times against Charlton...

    Current Player #23 Josh Murphy

    To be fair, at one point in time he did look like an enormous waste of money. I don't think it's ever helpful to sing it at the player, but I can understand why people thought it. There was a lot of frustration boiling over back then due to the incompetence of Robinson and the senior management...

    MacDonald was the champion of the quick throw. I used to love seeing him rush to gather the ball up and then lob it behind a defender for someone like Hylton to tear after. It helped that he had a decent arm on him as well so could hoist it a good distance. Some players just have that instinct...

    Manager/Coach Des Buckingham

    I know you have previously critiqued Buckingham's set ups for a lack of a plan (which I always thought was a fair point at the time) but it looks like a lot has moved on in that regard. I thought there were a couple of real standouts from Saturday where we had improved and everything looked...
