    CHANGES AT THE KASSAM STADIUM

    CLUB CAPTAIN & OXFORD LEGEND DECO RETIRES

    460DecoDanielDalZennaroEPA.jpg

    Club captain and footballing genius, Deco, announced his retirement at the end of last season. Deco was one of the club's best performers - as he inspired the side to a second place finish and promotion, trailing the amazing squad at Derby on goal difference alone

    GOAL MACHINE LEAVES

    89 rated Spaniard Ruben Castro is on the brink of a 10 million pound move to Sheffield Wednesday. Castro is Oxford's top rated player and has been the mainstay of their attack, but the management have stressed the importance of building for the future, and at 32 there was a general feeling that it was time for him to find pastures new. 10 mil isn't so much in this game world, but to a club of Oxford's size it will help to ensure continued success and stability.

    WICKAM ARRIVES

    20 year old striker Connor Wickam has put pen to paper on a 4 year deal at the Kassam, following his 5 million pound move from Rochdale.

    Wickam was picked for greatness very early in his career but has failed to deliver under the pressure. It is hoped that a drop to division 3 will help him to grow and mature - and the 20 year old English man is definitely the sort of player that Oxford want to build their future around

    OPENING DAY MAULING OF THE TIGERS

    Oxford were inspired to an opening day victory over Hull City, with 2 goals from Badelj being the pick of a 4-1 thrashing at the Kassam for the toothless tigers....

    LOANS

    Thanks to Man U for the loans of ELKESON & LIVERMORE. Still have space for a loan-defender...if anyone's feeling generous ;)

  2. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread

    Derby County sealed the Division 4 top spot with a trashing 5-0 victory over Blackpool!! My first silverware in EC106. Took me more than 4 years to achieve that! LOL

    Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored a double. Holtby' date=' El Arabi and Wakaso got into the scoresheet as well. It was a nerve-wracking last week as we didn't earn any point in the previous 2 games. B)[/quote']

    Congrats - I was disapointed to miss out on the title on goal difference but well done anyway mate

    Derby County moved up to the top spot in Division 4 after a superb 3-0 victory against Luton Town. Zapata' date=' Wakaso and Huntelaar contributed in the scoresheet.[/quote']

    Just above my OXFORD on goal difference. Not being funny but with that squad of yours you should rip this division up... still I'm happy to fight for 2nd ;)

  5. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread

    Closing the gap with Division 4 current leaders Oxford United after beating them 5-1. El Arabi gabbed a brace with Keisuke Honda' date=' Miguel Torres and Diego Capel got themselves in the scoresheet. Ruben Castro got the consolation goal for the host.[/quote']

    Well done mate - though looking at your squad I'm not surprised you hammered me! Still hope to push you close till the end of the season though

    UPDATE FROM THE U's

    Since taking over at Oxford we've had a great run of 11 points from 5 games (3 wins, 2 draws), helping us maintain a 5 point lead at the top of Division 4

    Our attacking outlook has seen us score an amazing 16 goals in those five games

    We've also been looking to balance the books - shipping out some poor players from an average squad and gradually replacing them with better players, whilst keeping an eye on the wage bill and transfer budget

    Hoping to build a solid future at the Kassam Stadium

  7. Re: "A particular Club Wanted" Thread

    just about to set up a youth league if your interested?

    choose your team

    start with no players

    100 million cash

    max rating of 84

    max age of 23 then must be sold

    Hi mate I'm very interested - looking to pick up my team (LEEDS) in a new custom...that doesn't happen very often :rolleyes:

  8. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread

    You do realise that a midfield is only 4/5 members of an 11 man team? :rolleyes:

    Or are you so desperate to put words in my mouth and mis-quote me?

    We had a team that isn't that yet due to several new arrivals. They were holding on for a 1-0 and all of a sudden they're world beaters again? :rolleyes:

    Who do you support out of curiosity?

    I actually support Leeds, so have no reason whatsoever to cheer for Man U.

    I just think it's interesting all of this Man U bashing...before this it was Arsenal, but then they bring in one quality player and now it's Man U getting it. Man U brought in one player last season I seem to recall (all be it a very good one!) and went on to win the league at a canter. A lack of transfer activity doesn't always mean anything - personally I question some of the buys made this window, especially by Man City (over-rated & over-priced players) and Spurs/Chelsea (too many players bought who play the same positions). Sometimes teams seem to buy players for the sake of it....

    And I don't think I'm putting words in your mouth - you said the midfield of Man U was mediocre compared to Spurs. I don't buy it - you have some highly sort after players, but untested and unproven in the premier league. Man U have a midfield that have won a lot of trophies, and have added to it with Fellaini. I just don't see how you can describe them as mediocre. Perhaps they are a little workmanlike, and don't have tons of flair, but whether it's grinding out points at Stoke, defending manfully at the Bernebau, or ripping up Swansea on the counter - I'd take Man U's midfield over Spurs anyday. The flair comes in the form of Rooney, RVP, Kagawa, even Nani on form. When Spurs' midfiled have won the sort of stuff the likes of Carrick have - then we can talk... ;)

  9. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread

    Chelsea - Hazard' date=' Mata, Willian, Oscar, Lampard, Ramires, Mikel, De Bruyne, Schurrle

    City - Silva, Navas, Fernandinho, Yaya, Nasri, Milner, Garcia, Rodwell

    Arsenal - Ozil, Cazorla, Wheelchair, Arteta, Flamini, Ramsey, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rosicky, Diaby

    Tottenham - Lamela, Eriksen, Paulinho, Dembele, Sandro, Capoue, Holtby, Lennon, Townsend, Chadli, Gylfi

    United - Carrick, Fellaini, Giggs, Cleverley, Nani, Valencia, Young, Kagawa, Anderson, Zaha

    Quality wise I think your midfield bunch is 5th and for a team aspiring to be champions in every competition they're competing in, that's pretty mediocre.[/quote']

    It'll be interesting to see the comparative success in terms of league positions and trophies between Man U & Spurs come the end of the season now that you've decided how mediocre Man U are.... I seem to recall not so long ago some of you Spurs fans going on about how superior you are to Arsenal now....how did that work out for you?

  10. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread

    Love everyone on here doubting man u - they won't win the title, won't even finish top 4, average/poor team with no quality players...

    No doubt they should have added more in the transfer window but you guys are muppets - Man U will be top 4, no doubt, and they still have a top squad - other teams might have bought a few stars, but Man U have a team, a team that is used to playing together and used to getting results and that hasn't changed

  11. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

    From this thread and the Spurs one' date=' we get that you find it annoying, but you are starting to sound a bit too obsessed mate.

    Chelsea football club is what it is, everyone knows it, just like Man City and the sheiks, and Man Utd fans, they are what that are - I think its time to let it be dude.[/quote']

    Fair enough...I'll find another bone to chew on :o

  12. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

    This is for Dougie; the other 1st team wingers we had when Shaun signed were Robben and Duff (you could count Geremi as one but he's a "utility man" and was mainly used at right back). So no' date=' we don't buy players that we don't need so others can't. :rolleyes: Just out of curiosity, who do you support?[/quote']

    Leeds Utd....

    Still, you must admit Chelsea have wasted a lot of money - whatever the motivation for it. There have been times when it has looked to me that they have bought someone just to stop them going to a rival...but of course this would be a stupid way to run a football club....

  13. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

    I'm pretty sure that it was £21 million' date=' yeah... we didn't need him, he was partially signed so others couldn't sign him. He did play quite a lot though, Mou used to constantly rotate back then.[/quote']

    So the point stands - you buy players you don't need - so others can't...wow modern football eh?
