League 1 playoff final later 14:12 - May 18 with 2045 views_clive_baker_

16:15 is a random kick off time. Anyone going to be watching?

Nothing against Notlob particularly, arguably them going up makes Norwich’s chances of staying up a bit harder next year you might think, but got to be team Oxford with Gregory and Kyle there Shirley? Quite like Des Buckingham’s story as well and that he’s kept them up there since Manning binned them at the first opportunity.

I’ll be watching

Oxford the underdogs - will our two ex-players start? Or are they still injured.

Interesting to see if it sells out.

Think Bolton really need to and deserve to go up!

I met a friend of a friend at the cricket recently & I quickly discovered he was from Bolton. Therefore, I couldn't resist whispering the words "Barry Knight" to him. Turned out he was at the game as well.

My annoyance with Bolton’s s-housing in 2000 and burying us like a bone in the back yard 4-0 in 2002 has long since melted away. They’re ok.

Proper, historic football club who’ve been through the mill to near oblivion even more than ourselves. They, as a club, are strong enough to do well in the Championship, finished third, so deserve to go up. I wish them well.

Yeah that’s fair. Finished 10 points above Oxford, have some decent players and Ian Evatt certainly seems to have something about him as a manager when you consider his record. Wouldn’t surprise me to see them safe next year if they do the business today. As you say that’s a club that’s been through some dross.

Got happier memories of Oxford away, particularly at the Manor Ground when we were promoted so have bunged a tenner on Oxford at 3-1.

Similar, in that when i visited a client I was introduced to someone who was a Bolton supporter.

I'd never met him before, but asked for his thoughts about Barry Knight. What followed was a 2-3 minute tirade with language that should never be used in a professional environment.

It was superb. 20+ years on and they're still not over it.

Hope they win today though.

"Barry Knight saved my life" by the Fun Lovin Criminals was one of my favourite songs of the 90s.

Yes, first tackle making sure it took the Bolton player as well as the ball.

Living in Oxfordshire I have to say I want Oxford to win.

….but only because if they win they will only be in the Championship.

Another reason is that my one of my first dates with Mr Bluebell was to an Oxford United game.




That was only because all his mates supported Oxford. He has been an Ipswich fan since he was a young child.

When Bolton watch back and accept their team deserved what they got then I may look favourably in these situations. But as it stands...

ONE NIL OXFORD!!!!! Get it over the line Greg!

Our championship promoted squad
With 99% players who played in league 1

Bolton in pieces. Oxford are far better in every department. Faster, stronger, more decisive, better anticipation. I’m surprised by that. I thought Bolton would offer a lot more, but it looks like they’ve forgotten to turn up.

This is reminding me of bad days in league 1, Oxford absolutely sh1thousing Bolton who are stuck passing the ball in front of the defence and then hit twice on the break.

But, since it’s Bolton, can’t say I’m too bothered.

Bolton being far too frantic in trying to get the ball back when they lose it - just charging straight into Oxford's players and giving them an easy option to hit the deck.

One of those strange games where the team with the smaller share of possession looks much more comfortable.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Yes, don’t think the keeper has had to save anything at all. A thoroughly deserved win.

Distinct lack of drama in this year’s play-offs though which is a shame.

Well played Oxford. Thoroughly deserved. Bolton never got to grips with the game and defensively were pulled apart.

Pleased Greg Leigh gets to celebrate another promotion.
