|Oxford lost last night because of their Goalkeeper....|
at 07:03 14 Jul 2020
...he let in soft goals in the semi finals, didn’t come for a cross and managed to deflect the first goal in, then dawdled coming off his line before then charging in to the Wycombe player for the penalty.
|ITFC Players of the Decade....|
at 07:27 12 Jul 2020
Following on from a minor debate last night on one of the McG threads, who would you class as the players of the decade?
1970’s: Kevin Beattie. Frequently lauded as our best ever, and this was the decade he played in.
1980’s: Terry Butcher. Quite a lot to choose from to be honest and John Wark would be an equally acceptable winner. Both played for us for longer than most of the rest of the legendary early 80s sides, and were two of our most important players. Paul Cooper could be another contender too.
The likes of Muhren, Thijssen, Mariner, Mills, Burley, Osman etc all left before the other three.
1990’s: Richard Wright. Quite a tough one, and the decade can be split in to two halves, Before Burley and After Burley. Wright made his debut in the Prem when he was only 17 and was established as first choice within a year, and was virtually ever-present for the rest of the decade.
Others that could be chosen include Dozzell, Wark, Johnson and Holland. There were others that were very good servants to the club in this decade as well; Stockwell, Marshall, Milton, Mathie.
2000’s: Jim Magilton. Classy player who also had a spell as manager in the same decade. A hard decade to choose from, as by the middle of the 00’s, there became a high turnover of players as administration took hold, so the likes of Stewart, Bramble, Holland, Herman, Reuser etc didn’t actually play that many seasons with us. You could possibly make cases for Kuqi and Pablo, but I’m not getting in to that debate!
2010: David McGoldrick. More quality than most of the dross that played in that decade put together, we missed him so much when he was out it was embarrassing. Other contenders could be Berra, Bart and possibly Murphy.

....everyone is with the season just ended.
That’s the only conclusion I can think of given the ridiculous backing of PRP and insistence that they will look closely at the season and “try and learn from it”
Clueless owner, clueless manager and a mouthpiece set up to take all the flak.

Stone Roses - I Wanna Be Adored came on yesterday in our house.... 10 year old daughter wanted to know why they were singing "I wanna be a dog!
And on a slight tangent, this was a cracking question which came up in our family zoom quiz last night.... which song knocked Bohemian Rhapsody off the no. 1 spot in 1975 - the song in question's title is in the lyrics of Bo Rap.

New ground virgins will no doubt be cheering on Northampton so we can visit another soulless out of town stadium.
Edit: Out of town.

As soon as there's any criticism, he can blame it on C-19 as there's no money to sign players, got to develop your own etc.
Honestly, that guy is made of teflon. Doesn't matter that the squad is being dreadfully managed - a half-decent manager would have got a tune out of that squad.
We're going to start the new season with zero optimism in the manager and our expectations continually being moved downwards by PRP and LO'N.
