Lower West Option to play 3 at the back. Both Richards and Yiadom would make good wingbacks.


Richards isn't and never will be a championship level player.


Give the guy a break. Going to be a tough season for all the academy players.

Re: Free away travel

Certainly in for a few trips. A good away support could make a real difference in scraping some additional points together.

Re: SPECULATION - Aaron Tshibola

I'd be interested to know whether there's a correlation between those who are happy with our current midfield options and those who aren't keen on Tish vs vice versa. Beginning of last season we had an excess of midfield players. Now the reverse. Too much to expect academy players to put a consista...

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

Adam was more than fine when he played. Can see why his pass numbers were not that great, he is always trying to pick out a forward pass to get the team moving forwards - something we've arguably been lacking. Forward passes will by definition be "riskier" and less likely to come off but ...

Re: Ex Players

I'm sure Wenger didn't sign Henry with the express plan of converting him to a striker. I'm also sure Henry was much younger and less fully formed as a player. You're just being daft now. He was 22 had made 120something league apps and was certainly bought by his former manager to play as a striker...

Re: Where will we finish?

Going to be a difficult season. Unless we bring in some further loan signings. Still hoping that Baker returns.

Once transfer window closes we'll have a better idea of how high a position is even possible.

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

Adams looks another shrewd signing. We've some promising players. Having him in the squad will be a bonus when morale drops. At least tried to play outballs up the pitch to try and turn the Chelsea defence.

Re: Blue-collar streetfood

Bonus for the vegan outfit next door, they were doing a roaring trade. Must have been a lot of late ticket purchases from...

Any indication of the crowd size?


Around 20k.

Shambles though. Ticket collection was overwhelmed. KO put back 15 minutes. I missed first 7. Walking back to get back in. Queue was still nearly back to where away coach parks.

Why haven't our season tickets cards been issued yet?

Re: Will Gomes stay?

He's seems to be getting more and more frustrated and who can blame him? Media noise one suspects. There is a plan. A long term one. There is no quick fix. Gomes will be fully aware. There'll be activity behind the scenes. I'd expect last minute additions in the form of loan players. End of last se...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Has everyone here completely forgotten how utterly atrociously oxf*rd we were going forward last year pre-oliveira? Much to do with the wide players and creativity in midfield. Aluko was such a catastrophic buy for the fee paid. Instead we could have bought 3 average players and had far more depth ...

Hmm injury prone John Swift playing his second game of the day, but no sign of Barrow or Novakovich for friendly #2 Barrett back in Gomes is now just guessing. He's got no resources and won't be getting any so he's just shuffling about until something sticks, and I can't blame him. Just a question ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

Baker was probably the nail in his coffin. In Baker we had a guy who wanted to play , to contribute to the team for the full 90 minutes of the match. Was happy to play in whatever Gomes assigned him too. Baker had far fewer Championship appearances too prior to coming on loan.

Snowflake Royal Shame with Kelly gone it's him or Swift alongside Rino.


You would hope that Gomes will add more steel to midfield. Allowing Swift a freer role with less defensive duties.
