But I'll buy a season ticket whatever the circumstances are .... won't I?‘I’m utterly sick of being fed bullsh*t’
This. Succinctly, accurately cutting right to the heart of everything wrong.
Not just now, but going back to the dying days of the Eales regime and the ‘three fee paying players in January, honest wink wink’ facade.
As a fanbase we’ve been getting fed rubbish for a prolonged period of time now, and it’s approaching critical mass.
Can’t wait for the ‘NEXT season we’re really going for it, you won’t believe how good the players we are going to sign...so we’ve put up season ticket prices, buy buy buy’ cycle of tripe to commence soon too...
Great report. I’m really worried about oufc. It seems that it’s a complete shambles at the moment. Is this a start of free falling down the leagues to the bowels of non league? ie chesterfield, Stockport , Darlington and Hereford all were poorly run. No bullshit I HOPE NOT
Don't know about acknowledged expert but I'll give it a go. After some contemplation I’ve got a somewhat different view. Confidence is a good thing. Over confidence is a bad thing. But I don’t recall seeing any of the latter. Recruitment did go wrong – massively so with Sam Smith. But I think KR had largely planned to build the team attacking wise around the recreation of Samir Carruthers / Robbie Hall partnership he had at MK Dons. Hall of course already being here. He featured in the first two games and hasn’t been seen since. His injury record was known when he was brought to the club back in 2016. Was KR unlucky with the Carruthers injury too? A risk too far? That left him to produce a new plan, one without a striker that could strike.Hello Jerome - I wasn't at the game today - in fact, I only get to a few each season so my understanding of the situation comes mostly from yourself and Radio Ox. So I wanted to try my view with the acknowledged expert, Paul B, please.
It seems to me that Robinson knew that last summers recruitment had not gone as well as he expected. That he decided to gamble by setting what he had up to play fine football and convincing them that they were world beaters. When this didn't come off, he faced the dilemma - how to turn over-confident , arrogant but fragile players into something more pragmatic and hard headed. Somehow, you have to reduce their over-confidence without reducing their confidence. I don't think he has pulled this trick off.
Do you recognise this reading of it at all or am I barking up the wrong tree?
