From a Barnsley fan who mentioned that Oates will bang goals in for us, he said pre season he played a few times and thought he was the better of the four strikers barnsley have and much better than Leroy Lita.  Yesterday proved he has an eye for goal and just hope he gets given a full game paired with Hannah or Lenny.

One love, one heart one soul GTFC.

Well he's certainly started in a positive fashion. Sounded like he was was struggling for match fitness and could hardly move at the end so he may not get a full game for a little while yet. Could well be a gem of a signing though.

Just seen his goal. Perfect first touch, and a perfect, clean, fierce strike in to the corner. A moment of real quality.

If he scores a few more like yesterday, then he'll be a shrewd signing!! Meanwood summed up the goal perfectly! Quality finish!!

By the sound of things he could be a useful addition,

We might need to extend the loan to get him fully fit for Barnsley , next year,

Super sub for a few games then when fit, he will start.

Took his goal really well, just watched the highlights and it was our one bit of quality. Great pass from Brown, Oates got the ball out from under his feet and a very good strike.

Only problem is that he is clearly not match fit. If he can't last half an hour, he won't last a full game even after a month so he will probably have to be used as a sub and that leaves us still short of a striker doesn't it?


Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

According to Paul, the players have got Monday off -  so Rhys will presumably start training with Town on Tuesday.

From the fans' comment, it's hard to see  how he will be fit enough to start the match on Saturday.

If Nsiala hasn't got 5 yellows and LJL not ready, I can see the same starting 11 - as at Kidderminster (not that that is a bad thing but an attacking attitude would need to be instilled in the players to see off Chester). Paul is going to see Chester v Wrexham, so hopefully Chester's defensive weaknesses can be identified and exploited next Saturday.

Trouble is, that  we get him fit and if he is scoring regular, he will get recalled, or sold on by his club, leaving us back where we started,  We need our own players , instead of false hope again

Exactly right - Barnsley will call the shots
