cheers for the twitter link from 1.30pm @RCYellowRC .... its great having info via twitter
for those who use twitter ... not so great for those (of us) who dont. Easy enough to 'inform' on twitter so why not inform a wider amount of interested OUFC supporters via official OUFC website around the same time?
More people use Twitter than use the OUFC website?

that goes with out saying....but how many oufc supporters use twitter in comparison with how many oufc supporters use the oufc website? ....radio Oxford and Oxford mail are still the 2 main sources of OUFC info that OUFC supporters use

I think you’re talking from a personal perspective there. Twitter covers both your main sources and more (and faster). I would have thought by now more people are using it than not.

correct ...Im not on twitter. .... more people using it (twitter) than not? .... many people I know are not on twitter......of course news agencys use twitter for breaking news, thus ensuring tv, radio and newspaper s are to get the word out on and therefore most have the benifit of twitter. In a round about way most people (in the UK) do have the benifits that twitter can have.

as I said already, I know many people without a twitter account, and very few that have a twitter account.

No dispute twitter is in popular usage, as are a multitude of other social media networks.

point I was trying to make, & probably not very well, was only using , or using Twitter for first announcement, of anything newsworthy Oxford United wise, doesnt reach the majority of OUFC supporters until said info reaches OUFC official website, or when local media decides to run with any information released (by OUFC) via twitter


OUFC releasing any info /news via twitter is great but, It must be fairly easy to release any news/ info via OUFC website simultaneously or very soon after its on Twitter

Old men and technology isnt always the best combination

I had never used Twitter but when I realised most if the up to date info about OUFC was arriving through that method I joined. I don't post anything much, maybe occasional message to rad ox, but just follow the likes of ox mail, OUFC, OUFC accademy , rad ox sport and a couple of other OUFC supporters and I find it keeps me well informed with no effort in my part.

Last nights senior cup game at cpf was the second time ive seen Jonte Smith in an oufc shirt.
Imo last night showed massive improvement since u23 v hull u23....faster , sharper, involved in a lot inc his goal. Was unlucky not to get at least one more goal, positional play as a striker decent too. Hard work on the training ground already paying dividends, though maybe a bit of extra work in the gym to strengthen & bulk him up a bit may be needed?
So far so good, Jonte Smith is wip currently, and id say good wip and progressing very well

I felt he had an excellent game last night. Work in progress, but I don't think we would need to wait until we are safe to play him. Bulk up over the next couple of weeks, a goal or two more for the U23's and he fits the bill for a first team place. Him and Sinclair in the same team in a 442 would be quite interesting.

He has come on as sub before onc3.
I suspect that if/when we are safe he will get more chances.
only couple of minutes though wasn’t it? would like to see what he can do with decent amount of time

I would reserve judgement until he has time to continue his Gym work/upper body strength as he looked last night a bit lightweight.
Reminds me a bit of the O'Dowda situation where once he had bulked up he looked different class. Hope Jonte is given time.
