Surprised nobody has started this thread yet.

Wasn't a bad performance all in all, just beaten by a better side who were more clinical. Having said that both goals could have easily been avoidable and it could have been very different had we capitalised when we were on top at 1-0 in the second half. They were much faster than us and I didn't really feel comfortable with them running at Glennon and Mullarkey, similarly plenty of times when we broke we couldn't beat them for pace and/or muscle. Their lad (Murphy was it?), who broke for their corner was a constant problem and completely rinsed us for that first goal. Feel like Cartwright could have done better with the parry for that but otherwise he was excellent and probably our MOTM. Felt like Oxford had another gear or two they could have gone into.

Cracking support today, Last Christmas sounded class.

Two tough away matches for Artell to start with but plenty of positives to take from the two games.

Artell sounded pretty happy in the post-match interview which is worth listening to. Said their goal on the counter was due, in part, to the lack of time to work on set pieces since he arrived!

Gnahoua not injured, just a bit tired and sore so should be available next game, you'd expect.

Got Back to Northampton about 6:30 - can’t complain at that and again can’t complain too much with that performance- can defo see improvement already with the ball - just need to work that bit harder without it - but overall plenty of positives - a decent away day - fans were class as always - the Prospect Ale was good and although disappointed not to be in Round 3 - now we can focus on the league and moving up it -
Oh yeh who was that in the BMW with reg X5 UTM that shot past us on the A43 towards Northampton??!!

Think it was probably someone trying to keep up with Oxford's number 23?

What was the last Christmas song? The radio oxford commentators loved it


Get ready tonight
You know it just feels like it’s forever
Get ready tonight
We haven’t won a game since December

Just the chorus to Last Christmas word for word but instead of "I'll give it to someone special" it was "I'll give it to David Artell".

He lives in Louth, pretty sure not a player or ex player.


I was there, the day Bradley Wood scored a 35 yarder!

From the black and white striped shirts
To the fish in the sea
You'll hear us singing
Coz we are Grimsby.

You won't hear us crying
But you'll hear us shout
Coz we are the Grimsby
And this is our chant.......... Grimsby! Grimsby! Grimsby!

Worth being there today !!!!
part of the away  crowd (1497  - We could have 1500 another point) got carried away
With a certain Christmas tune.
But what did it for me when there was a lull a lone town fan
Shouts " More atmosphere  in Asda's!" referring to Oxford's
turnout and stadium King Charles III would have ridiculed architecture and design. The result Ohh well there is always
Next year FA Cup .
Roll on Wimbledon away in Jan 24, looking forward to "That Mariner's" one liners.
Yes I need to get out more at least more "Town "  games
IMO We keep that young goalkeeper  He has alot to give come January.
Love DA starting to make good northern sense.

O.P. sums it up very well.  Glennon and Mullarkey both caught for pace but possibly indicative of the difference in class of the two teams. Cartwright a clear MOM for me with some really excellent saves particular one which he tipped over the bar in the second half.
Best outfield player Conteh who rarely wasted a pass and made some very important tackles.
Not fair to single out individual players so I'll confine my criticism to generally poor distribution into their box, too many balls too close to their keeper, and a corner "routine" that xhould never be tried again.
Town fans were excellent, the Kassam is a soulless monument to modern architecture and both the ref and the lino operating in front of the  town fans need to look at their respective performances in the first half at least.


The aim of argument or discussion should not be victory but progress.

In his post-match interview, Artell mentioned something about a red card which should have been, but wasn't given. What happened there?
