Super U's to record victory against Grecians in Devon on Saturday
at 17:39 25 Jan 2020

Everything I was going to post and more Peter. One win in seven is not good enough when looking at the opposition we've played. This form will result in the ever likely 8th place in the league where the aiming point should be top three. We do not want to be in a lottery of play-offs but with McG's philosophy of "not losing" we have lost the idea of winning

So so predictable. Still I'm winning several points for selecting "no scorer" in the prediction league.
Seems we haven't anyone who can score goals and no likelihood of any signings arriving.
Will McG try something else now.....Junior to START...

Was it actually necessary to send him to Derry in the first place? He could maybe have learned his trade by playing for us instead? There was the distinct possibility of improvement if he had been used more than 5 minutes every other week.

Ok then, it worked last week and it's pretty difficult to forecast winners in several fixtures this week as well, so here goes...

Stoke City 1 Swansea City 1
Peterborough United 1 Rotherham United 2
Rochdale 1 Gillingham  1
Leyton Orient 0 Newport County 2 
Mansfield Town 1 Bradford City 1 
Morecambe 1 Cambridge United 1

Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61
at 16:42 22 Jan 2020

George Fisher and Johnny Fowler were our bestest full back combination ever, and with Percy Ames behind them it is such a disappointment that we did not do better than we did in late 50's and early 60's.
Part of our limited success however was always a decent crowd, Circa 8/9,000 at Layer Road. It always an intimidating place to come for visiting clubs as many of the Championship teams found during our brilliant two seasons up with the Toffs. Unfortunately WHCS or whatever they call it now does not have the same "atmosphere" and consequently does not give us the benefit that Layer Road definitely provided us with..
This is beginning to sound like the "good ol days" and perhaps it does; no apologies from me though.

If my memory serves me well Russell Blake was on the other wing for most of that era. I do remember he was most frustrating to watch because as soon as he received the ball he was headlong to the corner flag. Then he would make a decision on a cross if possible! In his defence a heck of a lot of Hunt/King goals emanated from balls from the wingers Wright and Blake. Would that we had that philosophy today of two centre forwards and two out and out wingers.
Also loved the fact that the team played with no.2 to 11. Oh these were the days. Unfortunately it wont be long before players in the premier have shirts with 100+ numbers.

Lets get things in perspective here guys.
1 win in the last 6 games is not going to get us promoted.

I can remember going to the match on the Osborne's match bus from Tollesbury. The bus was always parked right outside the ground in those days so straight on to the bus and home for a warm with the disappointment we had not made it TEN
I also remember it was bloody cold and wet, so much that I vacated the wobbly concrete terrace behind the goal where I normally stood at the clock end, and moved round to the covered stand on the lhs, the one with the cafe underneath and near the most unhygienic loo's I have ever seen. You know the ones! Water up to your ankles..

And still I prefer Layer Road to WHCS...
Same result tomorrow? I think not. McG does not have the nous of Benny Fenton

Am proud to say I was there on the terrace, bl**dy cold and wet and singing my heart out with rest of the mad fans.."we want TEN". Yeah Yeah...I was 15
What a memory. Oh to have a Bobby Hunt and Martyn King lookalikes back at the club.

Sorry Noah but have to disagree with you. Any manager that has been with a team for as long as McG should not have spent all his time in Div.2 This just determines he has not the drive or the quality to build a team for promotion. Yes, a long unbeaten run but we will see the quality of the run after the next two games I feel.
I want promotion as much if not more than anyone but McG insistence on parking the bus will not prevail.

How many minutes for Junior today then...NONE.
What has he done to be treated like this. He is basically the only exciting player we have in the club. There then is the answer I suppose...McG does not do exciting! Boring..yes.

McG suggests "we have to keep doing the good things we've done in the past twelve matches."

I believe we need something much BETTER than that Sir.

More likely that we will put six goals past them and then...they will go into administration!
