I think Woodburn should stay in central midfield though, that’s where he did his best work for us
Agree that Holland is probably the ‘least problematic’ loss. Taylor and Browne were essential, and Woodburn is a bonus as he can play several positions to at least an okay standard. I think and hope there’s a lot more still to come from him right when it matters most.i honestly thought we’d be lucky to get any of our loan players back, so to have Taylor, Browne AND Woodburn back is so exciting. Shame to lose Holland, but I feel he wasn’t quite top-of-League-One standard yet, he wouldn’t start over Henry and Browne, and anyway, we were resigned to losing him for the season as things stood. Playoffs starting to look very interesting.
Don't mention that fu**ing word (Fleetwood). If they were a massive club, you'd maybe understand why we always struggle aginst the bastards. But they're not. The only good thing to come from the word 'Fleetwood' is that geezer.....Mac! And yes.....I realise I said the word 'Fleetword' twice.....three times, now!Losing finalists then.
I haven't got a clue. Chuffed Marcus Browne is staying though.
I can’t see Woodburn, Thorne, Kelly, Napa being much use for a potential play off scenario. They’ve had such little football even before the enforced break and we need players to hit the ground running. No time to ease anyone in if it’s straight in to a play off semifinalTrue, although he's a useful utility option to have. It'll be interesting to see what happens if we keep Kelly on loan, as I don't think we've had a point this season where all of our squad is fit and raring to go.

Sykes is going to score the winner in the playoff final. You heard it here first.Surprised Sykes isn't getting much of a mention. He was a fairly regular starter before the season got stopped and he was playing very well I thought. Probably now a good option off the bench.
It suddenly feels that everyone is waking up to the fact that we’re in the play-offs! I know the world is still not an ideal place, lots of things could be a lot better but we should all make the most of this. Making the playoffs doesnt happen every season.
Bloody hell though, I remember back to when we were all discussing the implications of the transfer deadline day in January. That seems a lifetime ago..
Reckon we'll get 2 more games out of him at least!!Regarding the possibility of either Stoke, Charlton, Huddersfield Hull or Middlesbrough joining the current pair (Barnsley & Luton) for the foreseeable demotion.
Within Browne’s career, he has scored all of his goals for Oxford. Wonder what the changes are he plays for us again?
