No Tuesday Move for Oxford Clash
Monday, 18th Jan 2021 11:07
Town’s game against Oxford United at Portman Road won’t be played tomorrow, despite U’s manager Karl Robinson having said at the weekend that the visit to Suffolk was a match which he would like to have been brought forward to this Tuesday.
Robinson said on Saturday that he was keen to play one of his club’s later season fixtures on Tuesday in order to reduce the workload on his players in February with the trip to Portman Road, which is scheduled for Saturday 20th February, a candidate.
"We’ll be asking if Ipswich or Wigan could chuck one of those games on Tuesday,” he told the Oxford Mail. “That might free up a Saturday later down the road.
"If that doesn’t happen and we next play on Saturday, it’s less than four days per game if the season carries on for 10 extra days. If it doesn’t, it’ll be 3.4. For 27 games, that's an incredible ask.”
However, we understand Town have not heard from Oxford regarding the proposed switch and the game is still set to be played as scheduled.
Meanwhile, former Blues youngster Patrick Webber has left Wigan by mutual consent.
The 21-year-old defender, the son of ex-Millwall defender Damian, joined the Latics in the summer of 2019 on a two-year deal.
Webber, who the Town academy recruited from Worthing, made one Papa John's Trophy sub appearance while with the Lancastrians.

The Best PM in My Life by essexccc
Being born in 1957, I think I have lived through the leadership of 12 Prime Ministers. I don't know which of them I regard as the best, although I regard the current one, the amoral, lying and self-seeking one, as without doubt, the worst.

The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
