  1. Remind me. What happened when we beat a Man Ure. Actually agree with you. Just saying.
  2. Who knows, would not score many goals. MT is a rare starter for Oxford and seems to have had injuries issues (curious to see what happens with him this window) Morrell and Walsh might be rather useful midfield.
  3. Certainly a quality player hence a regular in team . Premier league past. International background. Seems to be on a level above many of our players who do not pick out his runs. I recall LJ saying they never thought they would land him. I think he is certainly a top player, just a shame he gets moved around the pitch as wide man, front man etc etc
  4. It would be strange if we signed him for that fee considering so little game time. Suspect it will not be a permanent signing as it stands. He will be the same or more than Jay
  5. It was a bizarre appointment of OGS in first place, his spell at management in UK with Cardiff did not last long and I recall they could not wait to get rid of him. They are light years behind Liverpool and Man City, those noisy neighbours as Ferguson used to call them.
  6. Who can recall him playing for Newport when on loan in the FA cup against premier league sides, Leicester City one, and was it Boro ? The pundits drooling over him as he gave defenders a torrid time. Off to Chelsea for mega money ? where was he played ? Not as an out and out striker but a wider and deeper position? Have we utilised him in a similar position. Are we actually getting best out of him. Food for thought
  7. Hi Sanchez. I am delighted we won. Absolutely ! Am I delighted with the 'performance.' No I am not. Does that make me negative ? Are the points more important than the performance ? Possibly. Thats the chicken and egg question. As I left the stadium yesterday the mutterings were we had 'got away' with one (again) . It is interesting to note that yesterday PEARSON Watford boss said he was more concerned about the performance than the points, and likewise today DYCHE at Burnley has been muttering same stuff. Me, as a paying supporter want us to play and win, and also to perform and some 'identity back' and play with a style and a swagger again. I see us currently 'grinding' wins, that is good, I hope that enables us to move forward. I want LJ to be successful. Very much so. The way he comes across as a bloke I like him, and it is clear to all he cares passionately for the club. That said him and his 'staff' have got to stop 'bigging up' every team that we play. We were told Barnsley were a good side. No they are NOT. They are bottom three for a reason. We were told the Shrews were a good team. No they are NOT. They are a mid table League 1 side who looked better than us over two games. We were told Wigan are a good team, no they are not. I can go on and on about how that theme that constantly reoccurs. Press media interviews and all that. I also accept we were a bit shafted by the well documented injuries and AFOBE which is the obvious one. I still believe that the issues caused by his loss can and will be addressed before end of the window. Live in hope !!
  8. And we lost 3 0 at bottom club Luton. Then beat them. All bit non sensical Top six with these players. Unlikely. Not enough quality final third. As has been problem this and last season. Await with trepidation see what happens next couple weeks
  9. He sure dodged that, the reporter was quite crafty how he phrased the question. It's true. What are we now ? long ball team, pressing team, even Gary Owers did not know anymore on radio Brizzle and he has played at the highest level, seems to be that DH also dodged it quite well, and he nows nothing about anything when it comes to incomings and outgoings. I would have expected the usual re spinning plates, not talking about other clubs players, thats fair enough.
  10. Nope. Been sent in on a double loan loan deal to get experience
  11. Easy in principle, but what value when a club looks at his injury record ? Easier said that done. I am curious and I am sure someone on the forum will have it at their finger tips, what was his injury record like at Villa ?
  12. People also forget what Warnock described as one of his best ever feats, keeping a doomed Rotherham in the championship when they were cut off and beyond help. He did not stay the following year and if I recall correctly they then went ! Still it was one achievement. All this talk is fun but ‘pie in the sky ‘ like it or not ‘ LJ is going no where. That said if I was SL I would ditch the 3 wise men today, (the staff not LJ alone are culpable for crap football) and get WARNOCK in for 18 months). The performances would not be worse than we watch now.
  13. Bad form does last In some clubs. You get relegated. I am thankful we have a few points on the board. The Wigan result gave us some respite, the Wigan performance gave us none.
  14. Strange how everyone can be so opposite and see things differently. In the match report thread by ‘ole’ he describes him as the pick of our players,
  15. Typing as he speaks on Radio Brizzle I am disappointed for sure Disappointed for people Give people now a good attempt at the play offs We played well and could have been one, two or three up good individual performances from 5 or 6 players I am focused, we work hard, sorry not to give them the Liverpool game Focussed now for run at the playoffs Little bit 'Famara' which he is why he is with us, but he gives us other platforms and he works hard. good hold up play but if he took all chances would not be with us. this game was a priority, Jay rested as fracture not completely healed yet Lots of good individual play. That is basically what he said folks FWIW
