Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

If you are good enough you don’t need plan B or wiry about teams working you out. Coppell didn’t have a plan B. Same team every week, same tactics, even made the same subs at the same time every game ! Ok, we’re not quite that good currently but I’d rather we did one thing so well that no one could...

Re: (Soon to be) CONFIMRED - some kind of Serbian bloke

just need to stop oxf*rd about. stop switching things round every year. stop splurging daft money on average or worse players. bowen was stable, pragmatic and steadied the ship. think he deserved another go with the young/hungry player model hes been talking about. but oxf*rd all we can do about it,...

Re: What goes on inside our owners' heads?

Genuine question. They clearly have money and, to a certain extent, good intentions. They back managers in the transfer market, they have invested in Bearwood, they put on free away travel last season. But, their track record with big decisions is, quite frankly, shit. And we're running out of road...

Re: Jackson Irvine

Snowflake Royal Seems decent. Doesn't score or assist a huge amount, but we're still light in midfield and could get lighter.

Would like another more defensive or B2B player in still. Although a creator is required if Swift goes and Ejaria doesn't come.


will fit right in

Re: Rumour - Olise to Leeds

Big fan of Olise, think he could have a big future. But if someone offers us £5m+ for a teenager who probably won't play more than a (substantial) bit part next season, I think I'd take it with sadness. The club comes first. Think it would be a poor move for him though. i think he could be a first ...

Re: Rumour - Olise to Leeds

Not sure we’have ’ to say yes, and of course what the ‘right’ money is could vary massively depending on who you are. It’s frustrating that there seems no guidance on FFP as if we knew what the rules will be we could make our plans accordingly. In any case Olise is the one I would be absolutely loc...

Re: Dai Yongge in trouble with Chinese government

Nameless We’re no worse off than if SJM had succumbed to a heart attack at any point after he took us on.


this is genuine nonsense

we are now in debt to a much larger degree, and dont own our own ground or training ground
that was not the case under JMW

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

bowen tried to adjust formation/tactics to bring more attacking players into play to try and win the game/change things up. that totally unbalanced the side and meant we went back to being utterly fragile and shit. players not suited to it and utterly failed to put in the effort required. our downtu...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

bowen has work to do, but lets not go mental.
our good run didnt mean we were going up, our less good run doesnt mean we are shit.

Re: Ho(ut)we

For him, it is a good move which will help him in the future. For us, a bad move, I feel that in a few years (or less) we will view him as someone who we wished we had kept. he's 21 will nearly be 22 by the start of next season and still nowhere near displacing first-team players. he's played what?...
