Interesting - after a very poor first block (the only win was before he joined), Des now has a block with more points than Manning's final block.
 
I can’t see beyond 3 draws and 2 defeats at best from the next block of games.

How the f**k did you come up with that based on the games in Block 6?

Seriously? Reading and Northampton at home and Carlisle away and you can see no wins?
Presumably this is a wind up?
I guess we’ll see who is right at the end of the month. Bookmark this.

My reasons - Carlisle will be a long journey plus they’ve got new signing Armstrong available. Narrow home win in my view.
Northampton we rarely do well against, as evidenced in the away fixture. Reading are reasonable away from home and will bring noisy support. We may be higher up the league than both but I wouldn’t bet against us losing one/both matches against these fairly local rivals.

- Carlisle have only won 3 at home all season (all to Midlands sides) and the likes of Orient, Bristol Rovers, Cheltenham and Exeter all won there - apparently despite the distance. And their new centre forward hasn't scored a League goal since August.

- Historical record v Northampton is irrelevant. We should have got a result there two weeks ago despite a poor performance (and one of their best of the season, apparently).

- Reading have 1 win (and 6 points) from 12 away games this season. They are atrocious away from home. And when we went there last month (without Rodrigues) they looked, for my money, absolute relegation fodder.

Perfectly reasonable to expect 7 points from these 3 games.

And it should really be all 9.

It sounds like you’d be unhappy if you were wrong, strange for an OUFC fan.

Which would be relegation form.
So you think that we ate that bad a team clearly
 
'Blocks of games' remind me of KR. I don't want to be reminded about KR.
