Re: Oxford United (A) Match Thread....

character of the team shines through again.

Not many teams would come back from behind twice and go on to win away from home vs a team desperate for their first win.

Just think, Karl Robinson was talking Oxford up for promotion.

Re: Oxford United (A) Match Thread....

What was it one of our esteemed members said, Coley will only be trying to keep us in League one. Wrong!!!! I believe Coley is trying to get us up to the championship, in doing that, we should stay in League One at the very least. We should fear no team in this league and i include Barnsley, Sunderland and other so called big teams. We are proving that we are no pushovers. Well played tonight to all the team. Obviously, i assume it was BBC Radio Oxford that called our team donkeys, well those donkeys made an ass out of your team.

He called Ross a donkey, but if you are getting beat by Donkeys I would not hold out much hope for the season.

I hope the 'Donkeys' dined out big time at the golden arches.

Great result, and equally importantly Billy had a great game by all accounts.

Re: Oxford United (A) Match Thread....

We didn’t play well - but got the result.
Always a good sign but at some point if we’re not careful it will catch up with us.
On to the next one .......

Re: Oxford United (A) Match Thread....

Even though he was a local man, I doubt even Inspector Morse could figure out how Oxford got robbed last night.
They out played, out ran, and out muscled (see Phil's half-time report) Stanley, and matched or were better in most departments except one - putting the ball in the net more often than your opponents.

First half Stanley were disjointed and slow to the ball and to react. Finlay was played as a forward and his talents were wasted chasing balls constantly passed back to their keeper. But somehow, after Oxford scored a cracking goal, Stanley went in to the break level. I thought I saw Sykes lanky leg hook the ball into the net but, it was a bit of a goal-mouth melee.

Oxford's second was equally impressive - do the opposition always score whenever Johnson makes a mistake? This time he anticipated a tackle on the half-way line that never came and dived to the floor, looking like an idiot, and they took the ball down his side of the pitch and rammed it into the net.
Professor Coleman made two timely and effective substitutions in the second half. First swapping Brown for Zanzala, but the master stroke was that allowed Finlay to get into the midfield where his influence was increasingly apparent. Not that Brown played that badly but he'd picked up a yellow card and Stanley's midfield was just not creating enough.
Next he subbed Big Ben, who was the latest right-footed defender made to play out of position at left back. Big Ben too hadn't done badly but left back is clearly not his natural position, but Anderton looked like he belonged out there.
And then, of course, one difference between the two teams was our very own Sir William Kee. He was stupendous last night. Winning headers against much bigger defenders, controlling and holding up the ball despite the pushing, shoving, and kicking he endured. Really pleased that it was he who bagged a brace to seal Stanley's surprising, possibly undeserved, but gutsy victory. Well done, lads, a great night out.

There 2nd was a nailed on foul, was sat directly in line with it 100%, ref gave fouls for the same tackles all game however not for accrington which is no suprise being away from home. Lets not go round calling our players idiots you might want to get yourself on BBC Oxford , in the same category as calling them donkeys, where were u when Johnson was outstanding on Saturday? Although by no means am i saying we played well not a single Accy player did bar maybe billy. Hopefully get him firing on all cylinders now. Outplayed, outmuscled you say but won 3-2, were in league one punching well above our weight, with the odds stacked against us. Not a time for negativity after picking up 7 out of a possible 12.

For those of you calling for Sykes to be dropped, that goal was for all you. Academy graduate young lad and your sat calling for him to be dropped, the lad needs as much confidence as possible!
