    I got told on Thursday that there is a strong possibility that he's coming back to us. Apparently they want to loan him out again and he's said if he's going anywhere, it'll be back here. Possibly explains why Sheridan is stalling on Peacock-Farrell...

    I like this signing. If nothing else he'll be decent back up to Davies, Holloway and Obadeyi, but clearly he has something about him and could flourish under Shez. As has been said before, having a squad where a lot of them have 2 year + contracts and potential to improve is a welcome sign. I doubt that we'll be world beaters but I feel that we can invest in this squad as fans.

    A friend of mine plays for Everton and has played near enough all ages with duffus, he's a very good player, and we have done well to get him. Look in much better shape this year on the striker front

    7 goals in 20 appearances. Yeah, I'd say he did alright.

    Its been kept quiet but Ripley is a definate. Baxter will follow. Top 6 is a good bet.

    Stop it. Stop it now. We know nothing about him. He might be on £300 a week for all we know and a long way off the first team. I hope he's straight in & fires us to promotion, but I have no idea...... It's usually me & me alone getting overly giddy at this time of year but loads are at it this time round chucking out all kinds of questionable statements & theories. Corbyn's Britain eh....

    Baxter's not in any league at all at the moment and hasn't been for a while!

    I'm glad you asked LightDN123.... because it couldn't be simpler. 1. Entry is £10 for the season, to be paid via PayPal to stevie_j@owtb.co.uk (note the underscore - may be best to copy and paste the address and please leave your OWTB username in the PayPal message box) or PM Stevie_J for account details for BACS transfer. 2. You will see your OWTB name appear in the list of Predictors, below; 3. Some time before the opening game - but no later than 10 mins before KO, post your prediction in the Oxford (H) thread* - link below - as I have demonstrated in this thread above/as follows; Latics 4 Oxford 1 (HT 2-0) First Scorer: Craig Davies Att: 5,871 *There is an individual thread for each of the 46 league games. A league table(s) will be published after each round of games. Best of luck.

    Are we not just getting back to what has become a novel concept of starting a season with a proper squad? The soft bigotry of low expectation yet again has people lauding Corney for doing what should be about the minimum.... (If he gets us Baxter I'll laud him to high heaven :grin:)

    We've signed Gardner from League 2, Hunt who was surplus to requirements at Brighton, Davies who on paper is probably at the lowest point of his career and Tope who had been arsing about in Scotland when he came in last season... I'm happy with all of those signings, in fact I'm very happy but, none of them strike me as needing us to have pushed the boat out financially...

    If Only Simon Turner Pitch Publishing 2017 Softback, 382pp, £9.99 Subtitled “An Alternative History of The Beautiful Game”, this is a series of six scenarios where history has been rewritten and there’s a very different outcome to that we’re familiar with. So, Scotland win the inaugural World Cup, Clough’s Derby become champions of Europe, and, in another European final, David O’Leary’s Leeds gain revenge over Bayern Munich with a victory in 2001. Oh yes, England win the 1990 World Cup (beating Argentina of course). Each of us probably has a moment in our own club’s past when if it wasn’t for the width of a goalpost, a handball not spotted, or deflected shot, then things would have turned out differently. It’s part of the angst we all feel, at the same time both frustrating and somehow liberating, giving us the opportunity to weave a more successful narrative and outcome. If only Mark Hughes had slightly miscued his extra time volley in the 94 FA cup semi-final then Oldham would have gone on to win the Cup, avoid relegation, play in the UEFA Cup and so on. So, this book takes us into such a parallel universe, and, at least for fans of the teams involved, it will be an enjoyable journey. It's a work that’s both fiction and non-fiction. The author packages his altered reality with a healthy and researched description of the context and background of the competitions he talks about. Thus, for the 1984 Battle of Britain final of the European Cup between Liverpool and Dundee Utd, you are presented with a very good background not only of the Liverpool era of the 70s and into the 80s but also of the Tannadice club and staff. Jim McLean is rightly identified as the driving force behind the club’s rise and there is an insightful piece on its ascent to the top of the Scottish game. In reality, the Tannadice Tangerines lost to Roma in the semi-final but Simon Turner intersperses the factual background with an account of his “alternative history”, the build up to the game, the match itself and reactions to it. And this is his technique with each of the six matches he writes about, so there’s plenty of football history (from 1930) as well as fiction. Suspend reality and this is a book that works. It’s written in a very readable style and has a strong factual background. It’s escapist in its premise and, like anything that’s the subject of a “what might have been” discussion, should be judged as that. And the next time a shot gets kicked off the line get dreaming about what might have happened in the years to come if it hadn’t.

    No it's not. It's been massively skewed by the person not doing the research properly and listing our capacity almost 10,000 less than it was in our Premium days. Actually it was 3,000 less than the true capacity at the time of the article Swindon's ground, and it's uncovered terrace (PL days) should have it below us. Bournemouth's capacity should have it below us. I'm sure there are a few others as well who we would arguably be above.

    I know I'll get slated for this but I never rated erwin barring a few good week towards the end of the season. He undoubtedly has potential but let's be honest he is just another run of the mill league one striker and if we didn't get him there are probably 20 others like him we could get. Baxter however is a genuine talent who seems to like it here. For all his faults his attitude is good and I would say he has a real addiction problem the club can help him through rather than being an utter moron like Hughes and ched of the past. It could be a positive story for the club as much as a bad one

    Neither. Erwin is surplus to requirements in the position he wants to play in. Baxter is damaged goods.

    Baxter's a big liability, once a coke head always a coke head.
