  • Thanks for the suggestion - Just spoke to the ticket office and it sounds as though there are system problems
  • Anyone having problems booking tickets this morning? The system tells me I can book two more tickets, and then when I try to it tells me I've already been assigned a ticket?
  • @jessvl1 said: @arnos_grove said: As has been noted before, if you know we’re going to ruin your match plan by taking ages retrieving balls, why not a) have some spares and b) get some ball boys on duty. Bizarre how ‘the …
  • @Malone said: @A_Worboys said: They should have the tickets ready. If not, I’m very happy to drive over to Oxford & pick them up for them. That's a generous offer! Let's hope the club do have them ready, and have t…
  • @username123 said: I’ve always followed Forest so have seen this clip a few times, I know I’m biased but I think it’s brilliant! Also, for what it’s worth, my son who loves football has no interest in what the pundits say. Gets up on a Sun…
  • @glasshalffull said: Max Ram, 20 year old defender who was on books of Leicester and Nottingham Forest. Signed recently for development squad. Obviously been working with Beano on his throw-ins.
  • @thecatwwfc said: Guys - he has had a handful of games, one of which was particularly good. He is 19. Let's not expect too much of him! Indeed. I remember the fuss after Tafari Moore's first game - and the demands to sign him up immediate…
  • Mine arrived in the post on Saturday
  • And all those with at least 5 years in the division have been promoted in from League 2, rather than relegated from the Championship. There may have been a few who have yo-yo'd between Championship and League 1, such as Rotherham, Barnsley, Hull, Pe…
  • Of the clubs in League 1next season, Gillingham will be the longest serving member, starting their ninth consecutive season at this level (just shows how much promotion/relegation is a fact of life at this level). Other 'long' servers include Fleetw…
  • The Fleetwood cup tie was before my time, but I do remember the game against them in the season when we nearly dropped out of the league - or rather the game that didn't take place, because we forgot to turn on the under soil heating the night befor…
  • Maybe he's going to have a go at baseball! If David Ortiz and Pablo Sandoval can do it!
  • The club has been around for well over a century, and a single season is just a chapter in a story or a stage on a much longer journey - albeit some seasons can have greater significance than others. All you can ask is that those in charge of the cl…
  • Mainly based on a trip to Germany for Euro 88, I think I can put out the following team that I've seen in the flesh GK - Dino Zoff RB - Claudio Gentile CB - Franco Baresi CB - Ronald Koeman LB - Paolo Maldini Mid - Frank Riijkard Mid - …
  • Possibly reflects Foster's background. Rather than starting out in an Academy from the age of 4, Foster used to play part-time for Racing Club Warwick (in the Midlands Combination?) while trying to qualify as a chef. He got a move to Stoke (when …
  • @DevC said: MSD Capital is a posh name for Michael Dell (the guy who founded Dell Computers) private assets. Effectively he has loaned a large sum of money to the club taking ultimate control of the stadium. Makes it harder for any rival bidde…
  • @Right_in_the_Middle said: For me the goaless draw at Ipswich was almost the perfect away performance. Barring the late penalty miss we went toe to toe with one of the divisions big teams at their ground. It showed to me we were capable of bi…
  • James Harper - played over 300 games for Reading team that reached and stayed(?) in the prem league. Wasn't at AP very long, but looked nothing like a player that could hold his own in the top division
  • There will be 4 teams WW have not faced in the Football League before - Blackburn, Derby, Forest, Middlesrough Have been in the same division as Luton (and maybe Brentford) 13 seasons Of the teams played before in the FL, the longest gap since…
  • A quote from Darragh McAnthony on the BBC looking at dramatic final matches in the championship - from 2013. Sound familiar? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52426367 There always have to be losers, but none more unfortunate than Peterboro…
  • Another loanee, Marlon Pack (currently at Cardiff)
  • Going back to the 2015 play-off final and the penalty shoot-out, and JJ didn't even take one of the first five. Back then Paul Hayes was on penalties, and he took the third kick. Murphy and Mawson took the first two, with Blooms taking the fourth, a…
  • @drcongo said: We're not the first small club to make it from non-league to the Championship, but pretty sure we're the first to not just buy it. Burton and Yeovil?
  • @StrongestTeam said: @Right_in_the_Middle said: I really hope that someone will be able to put in to words just how incredible this story is. Sky Sports couldn't do it last night and I've not seen a press report yet that does either…
  • A number of comments on the OUFC forum rightly picked up on Browne not chasing Grimmer down before Allsop launched the ball that led to the penalty. All players make mistakes, but there is no way Gareth would tolerate players coasting like that. The…
  • Stockport fans seem happy that Fylde look to be taking the drop back down to National League North.
  • Forest Green just need to build a papier mache roof over the away terrace - I'm sure Blue Peter would be able to advise
  • Mansfield - dislike their no matchday ticket sales for away fans policy - despite the ground being less than half-full Derby - yet another team in the championship with history, who can't believe it when they fail to get promoted again Accrington …
  • Lived in and around Coventry through most of the 80s. Had some memorable days at Highfield Road, most notably in 1985. Coventry had to win their last 3 games of the season to finish above Norwich (who had completed their season). Cov beat Stoke and …
  • I remember the LOFC v WWFC game at Brisbane Road when the O's were about to fall out of the league, and found it difficult to understand how things had become so bad off the field (which eventually fed through to the on-field position). However, go…
