Grant should be starting every game when available.
:stupid:
And hope he stays on the field for 90 minutes. That's not asking too much is it?
McCann will take him off when he gets a yellow card. That is a wise move of course. But it means we still don't get Grant for a full 90 minutes.

Grant regularly picks up yellow cards....He's a combative footballer and it comes with the territory.

McCann certainly doesn't take him off every time he gets a yellow card....and the red card he got against Bradford was a second bookable offence for handball.

The one or two individuals who moan about him on this forum clearly don't understand what he brings to the team.

I presume you include me ain that one or two. So you're wrong. I do understand "what he brings to the team". But he can only bring it while he is on the field.
Is there something wrong with wishing he could play every game as well as he does and not get suspended?

I think he has played in 8 of our 10 games this season.
4 yellow. 1 red (the red was actually two yellows).
Plymouth yellow
Bristol Rovers yellow
Rotherham
Northampton
Doncaster yellow
Bradford City red
MK Dons suspended
Walsall yellow played 45 minutes
Wigan on the bench, played 21 minutes
Oldham suspended

Anybody is welcome to correct me if I got that wrong.

Has anybody moaned about him? I think not. They have merely pointed out that he gets booked regularly and that we miss him greatly when he is missing from the teamsheet. We have not had a properly combative midfielder since Scouse and I personally am deriding loads of pleasure from seeing a player really get stuck in for the team. I accept that Grant is going to get booked time and again but I wouldn't change him for the world.

so complaining about how many yellow cards he gets and whether he lasts 90 minutes isn't moaning?

they should feel lucky that we have him....look what happened at oldham when we didn't.

It's a bit like Man Utd fans moanng about the number of yellows Roy Keane picked up back in the day. Would never have happened because they knew how much he added to the team.

You'd have to be well off the pace to question any apsect of Grant's game.

He doesn't exactly have a lot of support in there either...

Doughty has been disappointing of late and Forrester is a featherweight.

If we can get jermaine Anderson fit and back to his best...You'd have a good midfield pairing there.

Anybody else remember when Oxford were called Headington United?
I remember when we beat them 4-2 in the FA Cup (second round) in December 1958.
Our goal scorers were Dennis Emery 2, Billy Hails and Jimmy Rayner.
Attendance 16,855.

Oh my.
Talk about the good old days.
Here's the team on that day
Jack Walls
Ellis Stafford
Jim Walker
Bernard Shaw
Norman Rigby
Derek Chadwick
Billy Hails
Dennis Emery
Jimmy Rayner
Ray Smith
Billy Rees
