    Dreading it slightly less than I normally would because I’m guessing this nice tippy tappy football that Oxford like to play is going to be hampered quite badly by not having played any games
    Just as long as the team that gets promoted is from our semi, the other two can ❤️❤️❤️❤️ off

    We’ve played both Fulham & Reading - our tippy tappy football is going to be in full flow ;)

    Ah thanks. Will see if it is him.

    They've released Andy Williams. He's a Hereford lad and I'm wondering if he's been released because he's not League 1 ability or that they would have released him anyway. I'd love it if he returned to Hereford to finish his career but I suspect that might be a season or two away as he's only 33.

    I'd say a bit of both there, he'd only be a backup for them in league one and he'll be on a decent contract I'd guess.

    Really glad for Mcburnie and Berge last couple of games they have been excellent and shown the talent they have. Got a fair bit of stick this season due to their price tag but can definitely see them being the future of the club. Reckon Berge could be a huge player in the future.
    I still think it's mad you got Berge. I know he wasn't cheap but he definitely could have been one for the future for almost any team on the planet, a real snag for a team of your level despite your league performance.

    I assume he sees it as a chance to become a key player at a prem club for a few years before he inveitably gets sold on for 40-50M to one of the big boys, the bloke is class now let alone in a few years time with more experience.

    That makes sense. My thoughts were pretty much that.

    Yeah, we're not affording that. :lol:

    Hopefully he'll come in 12 months time or something then.

    Yeah I have no idea how we got him, clearly no one was interested at the time. Seen a few spurs fans saying they should have got him.

    He already seems to be buying into the club and settling down well, hopefully more signings like this can follow. I’m sure he’ll move on to bigger things but should be for a very nice few.

    What was the score when we played you? And what are the chances we got Dickie signed up while he was there?

    Bryniesta gets his first start in 18 months
    Like the look of the midfield, don’t like the look of the defence
    Think Oxford are just a horrible match for us in terms of play style so it’s going to be difficult to pick any team that makes me genuinely confident
    Lee Brown must have some dirt on Jackett, bloke is our third best LB and he is starting as captain

    'Kinell lads, talk about down to the wire.

    Final game of the season, I'm home to 23rd placed Chorley while Notts are at home to 8th placed Solihull Moors.

    Get ready for a bottle of Johnsonesque magnitude

    Decent start
    Probably should have had a pen for handball but tbf it was a tough one to actually see/give
    Can feel them building momentum though

    Imagine my shock the neutral managers both saying we should have had 2 pens, this is literally every play offs for us
    In fairness the second one would have been a bit harsh personally, but the first one was ball on actually hand for a goal bound ball 6 yards out, with the hand above his head

    If only there was some sort of test in place to determine whether someone was a Fit and Proper candidate to own a Football club. Shame really, the EFL should look at bringing something like that in.

    Yeh that’s alright
    Pretty happy with that performance, about the best we’ve played in recent times against a decent side

    It's also the only time you've played in recent times to be fair.

    It is funny with the L1 Play-Offs because I'm usually thinking about what Away games I can do out of them, but who knows when Away days will be back on the table.
