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.


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

Cant agree more more with that last bit, and on Tuesday both were extremely disappointing. I can excuse mislaid passes, even if there is a lot of them, no-one means to play poorly but what did frustrate was the amount of 50/50 balls they not lost, but with some didn't even want to go in for and that is inexcusable. Though Grants collection of cards frustrate us all, the fact they do surely endorses the worth we all feel he he has to the team, and one thing for sure, he's one player who will never shirk a tackle :D

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
We can't live in the past unfortunately but, boy, they were very happy days; and just look any that attendance as well....!
PS: I was one of them, at the Moys End naturally

I used to stand on the Glebe Road side as a rule but quite often ended up at the Moys End. Probably saw you there!!

I have no idea how McCann will line up the team but I'm guessing these players will be on the field at kick off-
Bond
Taylor
Taffazoli
Baldwin
Shephard
Forrester
Grant
Hughes
Maddison
Miller
Marriott
I only hope Grant will last 90 minutes.

Christian Ribeiro hoping Oxford United's hard work can reap rewards at Peterborough.
Ribeiro has been a spectator for the setbacks against Blackpool, Walsall and Bury, but is fit again after a knee problem.

As an OUFC fan I am really concerned by the performance of our side in the last 3 games. Our defence is slow so expect a lot of joy with Marriott's pace. We have no midfielder that can tackle but in Hall and Van Kessell we do have some pace of our own.

Big issue is our tendency to try and play out from the back, which if pressured, tends to lead to disaster. Also we are trying to be trendy and play with no strikers but it has been painful to watch as the ball keeps coming straight back at us as no one can hold it up.

I predict a fairly easy win for The Posh here but think we will get a goal, I'm saying 3-1 to Peterborough!

The Posh aren’t familiar with the phrase “easy win”.

Had no idea Oxford were playing without a striker currently.

Guess we'll find out how astute our research into the oppo is then. If we play 3-5-2 against no strikers...not cool.

It's as simple as, if Gwion's injured, we don't have a left wing-back and should always go 4-4-2. I think we will anyway.

Big game this. To lose away at Oldham, who'd lost all four at home, and then to lose against Oxford, who've lost their last three away games = not a promotion team.

Trepidation is the word of the day. No Gwion, no Junior, just lost to the bottom of the league in midweek...

Second half Oxford goal(s) probable. I hope we score more.

Looks like good weather conditions today. We really should put this game to bed in both halves but Oxford will probably make it difficult by making it a 10 man defence. Good chance for Miller to prove himself today.
