Working as OUFC charity patron .... after last nights game resulting in more blanks fired, IMO maybe get him to give our so called strikers some specialist coaching ? 106 official goals for the mighty U's, plus the 3 wiped out by EFL , Beano knows where the goal is and how to put chances away . I think , given the perilous situation we're sat in L1 , its a serious waste of available skills at OUFC

 
Never mind just coaching, Sarge...get him playing! Non contract terms so he can get the 100 up. Surely it's possible?

BEANO, BEANO, BEANO!!!

COYYs!
IF that were to happen & if somehow he not only got the 'missing' 3 goals, but maybe a few more in the remaining games, and thus contibuted in retaining our L1 status this season , what status would be afforded to the man who is already a genuine OUFC legend ? .... he'd have to be awarded freedom of the City of Oxford?

Well I’m pleased he has his foot back in the door it could pave the way for something more permanent.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to play him in next year's Checkatrade, would make it worth playing if nothing else
 
Might even put a few more bums on seats, maybe to see if he can break the great Graham Atkinson’s record also for nostalgia purposes
Technically he did .... his hattrick v Chester was expunged (wrongly IMO, by FA/EFL- it was a competitive match when it was played , if memory serves, yellow & red cards attained v Chester that season still stood, so why not Beano's hat-trick? ) from the record books after Chester went bust mid season
 
that's what annoys me. his goals took off him but yellow card still counted and ended up with a suspension later in season. Was Shaun Harvey in charge then? Would make sense

Yes mate he would have beat Atkinson’s record if it hadn’t been for Chester folding.
 

Back again!
You love to see it.

We often talk about who is and isn't a club legend. James Constable is a 100% club legend for me. We've had better players over the years, but none with a bigger heart than Beano.

Incredibly loyal to the club and even snubbed the other lot when he would have made loads more money doing so. Scored so many goals and his two at the Skip are absolutely iconic. And without being too melodramatic, the club might have folded if he hadn't scored all of those goals in the Conference - lots of players were important in that squad but noone was more important than Beano.

Brilliant to have him back at the club. Hope he enjoys the new role.

welcome back Beano

I still think the club should campaign- or at least @OxVox and @OUSP Secretary should campaign for the hat trick v Chester ,the season they went bust, & dropped out mid season, that were wiped from official records, by The FA and/or EFL- despite the fact it was a competitive league game when it was played. I kind of understand what was done regarding points won /lost v Chester during that part season, with regard to end of season places. Wiping the goals scored against Chester during that seasonfrom history was, in my opinion, a very poor decision by the powers that be. One that should be reversed, albeit retrospectively.*

Those 3 goals, if officially reinstated by the powers that be, would make Beano our ALL TIME top goalscorer. He was robbed by circumstances not of his making, of that record, which I (still) believe was wrong of the powers that be to do.


*(albeit this is referred to on another thread), itd be amusing- certainly to me, a few others too id guess? IF the powers that be conceded and reinstated those 3 goals , as they would go down as ' V Chester' - :ROFLMAO:
