Great save by Walton and we’re only 6 mins into the game.

Twice Town hit the post in 18 mins great move started by Walton ending with great effort by Bersant Celina.

I think our potential need for another left back has been resolved . I give you Bailey Clements . Bloody outstanding so far ….

It maybe goal less but a very good game of football especially at this level. Oxford have looked good but we’ve been the closest to scoring.

Looking forward to the second half.

Good game of football. Just not sure about both Celina and Edwards on the pitch at the same time. Celina’s been wasteful going for the Hollywood ball, but he hit the post. That’s how he is. Edwards looks good but not enough end product. I’d put Chaplin on at number 10 or wide left for Edwards.
Clements looks pretty solid and happy to join in the attack. Good debut .. so far.
Walton MOTM for me at HT. Anyone’s game, but need to get Burns on the ball more and I think Chaplin is better at linking play than Celina.

Interesting, Celina the standout attacking player on the pitch for me.

I would. Id also take Edwards off, great skill but so loose at the end of it every time!

Move Celina to the left, Chaplin in the middle and Piggott for Bonne.

I like Waltons positioning and it’s great having a keeper who starts attacking moves. Definitely our best keeper for a while.

I hope so too, he’s been far more wasteful than Celina.

We’ve stopped looking for forward balls for some reason and becoming hesitant….


We are going to get caught out with these square passes across back line !!

Both sides making mistakes as the fear of losing creeps into the game. To be fair neither side deserves to lose.

I wish Sam Morsy wouldn’t pick up yellow cards like I used to pick up speeding tickets.

A clean sheet against a more than capable Oxford side. Nice to see those mistakes gradually being ironed out hey! :wink:

If he feels he or the team are losing possession he just takes the player out . We’ll end up losing him for sure to a ban .


Clements looks like a stalwart in there at left back . I’d send Coulson back and free up some wages / space in squad ….


Think I’d be thinking of giving Pigott a run in the side now , Bonne looks to have gone off the boil and certainly looked heavy legged at times today I thought.

Overall I’d take this point against Oxford ….
Move on to next league game .

Edit , I’d also add that be dropping Edwards for a while . His game has been sussed and he’s not taking players on or creating anything . Much rather have Fraser in the side ….

We’re you late taking your seat Liz, he made a brilliant save on 6 mins that would otherwise have certainly put Oxford 0-1 ahead.

Walton, Clements, Toto, Edmundson and to a lesser extent Celina having good games.

Bonne non-existent, Edwards frustrstingly poor at the final hurdle each time.

Disappointing not to scrape the win. We probably just about deserved it.
