I see your Chris Martin and raise you one Glenn Little.

Yeah, well oxf*rd done Stam, well oxf*rd done.......


What, Stam is solely responsible for all signings and transfer fees now, too? Alrighty then.

Well a goal every 3 games, he must be doing something right.


Don't worry, we'll soon coach that out of him.

Always remember thinking Martin falls over more than the Pog (and is probably about as quick)

Half decent display but the first 30 minutes were worrying, Stevenage arguably could have scored a couple of goals and in phases were all over us.

Really happy for Dadi though, really sent a message to Stam this evening. It will be a scandal if he doesn't start on Saturday against Brentford. With him playing the full 90 minutes I fear Yann might get the nod at the weekend.

That's true. We were probably marginally better than in the first game during that opening period but there was not much in it. We were second best.

However, that first goal gave us confidence (even though it looked pretty scrappy to me) and we began to play more like a Championship side. And after the second goal we bossed the match (except for a 10-minute spell after the hour mark when we relaxed too much!)

We have to hope that this convincing win will raise the confidence of the whole squad. We have broken the dreadful run of games without a win; have kept a clean sheet; have scored 3 times from open play and no yellow (or red) cards!

I thought Kelly and Aluko had good games but my MOTM (and I don't expect anyone to agree with me) was Blackett! He was as solid as a rock playing in his preferred Centre Back position and, if we can only get Jordan O back to play Left Wing Back so Bacuna can play in his preferred position in midfield, things might get better. I know Jon Dadi is the obvious choice for MOTM but he wasn't involved as much as Blackett.

Jaakkola made a couple of great saves to keep us in the game early on but Clement looked too lightweight to me and was easily dispossessed. So - a much improved performance after the first goal but nothing to get carried away with. There were still too many misplaced 'passes' and poor first touches. But confidence can do wonders!!!

Nice to hear Blackett played well. I rate him highly as a CB

Seen the goals on the highlights - the 2nd and 3rd were lovely goals - fast attacking wing play, good crosses and great finishing. Excellent from Gunter and Bod

Glenn Murray wasn't exactly rapid either when on loan to us but he had that nous about him that a decent striker needs. Martin is in this mould imo. I'm optimistic if we get him he will improve us.
